Meet ~ Ellie

Eleanor (Ellie) A. Welch
Birthday ~ 06-08-29
I met my husband, Kenneth, in August 1945, right before WWII ended.  I was 16 at the time, working in a restaurant in Honolulu, Hawaii.
He was in the Navy and left the islands in November 1945 and we wrote each other of 17 months before he came back from Miami, Florida in April 1947 and we were married on Jan. 10, 1948 in Honolulu, Hawaii.
We were married for 56 years before he passed away in 2004.  We had 4 children and a wonderful marriage and I miss him very much.
