Mrs. W. was married to Charles W. She wasn't married till after the war, when her husband came home from the Navy. It turns out that the crew that he was with didn't seen action. She also had two brothers fighting in the war. While her brothers were over seas things at home weren't so great for her. Things were rationed for her like she had to reuse foil. Her brother Wayne was in the army. Her younger brother Albert was in the airforce. She lived in Thorndale, New jersey alone waiting for her family to arrive. Her first born child Cindy was born on Christmas morning when her brother Wayne got home. They celebrated for a new baby and her brother for coming home safely and not wounded, or injured in the war.
