Kind of blue
Tricia Byers Roghair sent in this stately photo of her mom at 16 years old in a blue bonnet in 1964. From the photo we can gather that she knew how to pull off a hat like nobody's business. But there's more to Tricia's mom than fashion savvy.
Here are few things, via Tricia, you should know about her mom Patricia Diane Faucett Byers:
- She was married at 17 , the summer between her junior and senior years. Although she was not expecting a baby, she was not allowed to walk in the ceremony for highschool graduation.
-She married a plumber/pipefitter had six children, they traveled to Africa for humanitarian work over a period of ten years. She buried a son in the soil of Africa, raised 4 daughters and the youngest, a son.
-Today, in spite of her diabetes, she entertains many through her home and welcomes many in need.
