Obituary of Florence B. (Brown) Pascoe Wirkus
Florence was Edward Brown's sister and Edward Brown was my Great-Aunt June's first husband. She died on 30 Oct 1974. The obituary was published in the Flint [MI] Journal.
History is constantly in the making; the task of the chronicler, confronted with the ever increasing bulk of material, becomes one of abbreviation and elimination. How few names, how few periods, how few events, go to make up what the world ultimately sees fit to keep at the finger-tips of memory. (MI Pioneer and Historical Collections, 1907). An effort to catch bits & pieces of history slipping from the "finger-tips of memory."
