Gail’s First Job

“I was talking with Carol about when she was in second grade at Seeley, a country school. She had Mrs. Neumayer as teacher and that teacher’s daughters, Peggy and Ann, attended the school too.

I was just first year out of high school and I stayed with that family during the week to take care of a younger girl, Ann.  That family ate huge amounts of fried potatoes every night and I had to peel those spuds.”  Gail Martin

Karen adds an update to this story: “Ann’s (the one that Mom babysat) had an older sister Peggy and an older brother Robert.  Both are deceased.  All three of them lived in El Dorado.  Ann’s married name is Fankhauser; Peggy’s was Little.  Mom and I ran into Ann at the Senior Fair the year after Dad died and I took pictures.
