The Marjorie Beck Story….by Aunt Marji (part 6)

I graduated from Eugene High School in May 1942.  I got a job at Woolworth’s and then for The News Tribune Newspaper.  I spent some time there.

On May 23, 1943 we had another baby brother, Lloyd.  He was adorable.  I didn’t get to know him very well.

In 1945 I was married.  In 1947 we moved to Decatur, Illinois where I worked at the Decatur Herald.

In 1952 we had a beautiful baby girl whom we loved dearly.

In 1961 we moved to Joliet, Illinois.  I went to work for the Joliet Herald from where I retired on March 24th, 1990, my 65th birthday.

I have done a lot of traveling and am enjoying my family – Kathy, Loren, Sarah, Leanne and Thomas.
