A note from Barbara Bolles on behalf of The Bolles Family Association……...

Edith and husband Vern were long-time members of the BFA and attended many of the annual reunions. They hosted the 13th Annual Reunion of the BFA in 1990 at Seattle/Bellevue, Washington. Edith, being the Bolles descendant, was Vice President-Membership for several years, and she faithfully fulfilled those duties. They traveled far and wide to locate and identify family history.

Edith wore many hats, as demonstrated on her little notecards. She was very proud of her ancestry and enjoyed her genealogy memberships, such as Mayflower Society, Magna Charta, DAR, and probably others of which I’m not aware. She graciously shared her research to help others attain membership.

Edith and Vern visited Randall and I in Kansas City on half dozen occasions and we enjoyed breakfasts, dinners and special excursions (Steamboat Arabia) with them. They did me a huge favor by taking/sending photos of my Great Uncle’s/Aunt’s headstone who are buried in Wenatchee, WA.
