Beatrice Ruth Sherman

Born June 7, 1907 in Rexton, Michigan

This beautiful little girl was my husband’s Mother, Beatrice Ruth Sherman, known as Ruth. Look at her ornate little stroller complete with a leg rest and beautiful back rest design. What a lucky little lady.


The Sherman Family, Ruth, Johannah and Will

Ruth looks to be about 12 years old in this picture of the family so we assume it was taken about 1919. Quite the young lady. Ruth married George Shelby Edminster and they were parents to my husband and his brother. Sadly, Ruth died of diptheria November 29, 1933 after the stillbirth of twins. My husband was just a little boy then but still remembers his Mother’s body being taken from their home.

Good Evening,

Tonight I have a special treasure to share: a family painting of Susan Viola (Leach) Sherman which was painted many years ago. She made many handmade quilts during her lifetime and you can see her working on one here. We were fortunate to see the picture a few years ago, and be allowed to take a photograph of it; I hope you enjoy it as much as we have.
