Bessie Ida Arnim Varley: Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to a wonderful Grandmother.

Bessie Ida Arnim Varley:

October 17, 1897--July 16, 1981

Her blouse is so beautiful.  Did she make it--she always did a lot of sewing.

F. C. Arnim, her baby brother at their house in Orange, California--about 1910.

Frances Charles Arnim and his mother, Helen Virginia Laidley Arnim still in Texas.
She would be so happy to see her house today.  She loved her family and the house her mother built when she came out to Orange, California from Texas after her husband, Grandma's father, passed away.

This house had two kitchens--a summer and winter kitchen.

Grandma was so excited when we visited Orange on Mother's Day.

This was her cat, Pinky.

Chlo Langendorf is spending quality time with Grandma and Pinky right now.
