My paternal great-grandmother Anna Omelia Strim
Born in Norway in 1878, Gra (as Anna Strim preferred to be known) came to St. Paul, Minnesota USA as a young woman. She died there in 1960, at the age of 84. I do not recall her ever speaking to me, although she was alive and active within our family until I was eleven. She did once stick me with a hatpin, but it was without comment. I am posting these photographs, which I found in my late mother's papers, on my familysearch.org account because someone who follows may be interested. Best wishes, Annmarie.
