More of Bob Reed’s Oklahoma roots . . .
“Aunt Cele” taught kindergarten in Williamsburg, Iowa for 30 years. She was one of the few women who were not forced to quit teaching when she had children. Her husband, Paul, was off working construction for the War Department in Alaska, so Cecile was a single mother during much of World War II.
Bob and Mary Reed, immediately after their wedding service on June 17, 1949 at the First Presbyterian Church in Iowa City, Iowa.
Mary passed away in June 2005, 11 days before their 56th wedding anniversary. Bob passed away 3 months and 3 weeks later. They were still very much in love.

(boy, everyone wants to hold young Daniel, huh?)
After young Daniel, along came Baby Ruth. She is being held by Bob and standing in front of them is Daniel the Indian. Even at a young age, he was proud of his Native American roots.
While teaching high school Biology in Monticello, Iowa, Bob Reed attended night school to earn his Master’s degree in Counseling from the University of Iowa.
1954, Unionville, Missouri
Bob was in his early thirties.

Check out Mary’s snazzy hat!
Mary sure liked her swanky hats.
The Reed family with Mary’s parents, Paul and Cecile Frazier, circa 1960. For you Stochls, Yearians, and Calvins: this photo was taken in front of the old Jones Funeral Home, (which is now the Williamsburg Library) – it was directly across the street (northwest) from Jon’s Pizza Haus (which is adjacent to the now defunct Jones Furniture Store) – the Jones’ businesses were started by O.G. Jones, father of Cecile, Eunice, and Burton Jones - to learn more about your heritage, go to: http://iagenweb.org/iowa/hist/1915/2_383-index.htm and click on“Jones, O.G.”
All dressed up for church – that’s when our parents always pulled out the old Kodak instamatic.
