Trapper’s Wife
by Linda C Butler

I showed my mom, Naomi Jane Vance a number of pictures from when she was first married and some after I was born.  She was amazed at how young she looked, but of course, she was in her 20s then.  At that time my parents lived in Thicket Portage and my Dad was a trapper.

That was 70 years ago, and it is good to look at these old pictures and reminisce as the world has changed so much for all of us.
