 Includes NotesNotes for Dorothy Janet Thorson:
She was a Secretary when young. From marriage certificate her middle name was spelled Jeanette. The following was found in a Bible given to my parents by my father's parents. "Mrs. Dorothy Friestad. I was saved over the radio in September 1938 at the age of 30. went forward in church March 5th 1939. The Church - The Midwest Bible Church 3509 N. Cicero Ave. Evelyn was also saved the same night. Ray was saved before he died and Wednesday or Thursday March 1st or 2nd 1939. Oscar was saved sometime in March 1940 before he died. He died May 26, 1940. Evelyn and I were baptized March 17. Dick went forward that night. Harold came to know and believe April 22, 1940 at the age of 33 in the old church. May 5th we went into the new church 3469 N. Cicero."
I also remember going to that church on the street car.

One of the things I remember about my mother when I was very young was that she was great at spinning tops and making kites out of newspapers.
