I am fortunate that my grandmother, Ivy Frankum Wilcoxen, gave me quite a few photographs of herself as a young woman. My favorite is the first shown. I'm not sure of the year it was taken. Grandma had asked me what photo of her I would like to have in a larger print and was surprised when I asked for this one. She said the beads were not straight. But I think she is so pretty in this photo.
