Bill Fecht's family and Elizabeth Fecht his mother.
This photograph was taken when Bill and Mildred Fecht's family was young. At the top left is Grandmother Elizabeth Ann (Walsh) Fecht and Mildred and Bill Fecht. The girl is Dorothy and the little boy is James (Jimmie). The photograph was cropped but the buildings were left in, since they give an idea of what the rear of the "home place" looked like.
Mildred was often bewildered by the large Catholic, southern family in which she married. Grandmother Elizabeth Fecht was pure Irish and was the matriarch of the family. Fortunately, she was also kind and generous to her young daughter-in-law from North Dakota.
