Thanks to brother Paul Jenks and sister Colleen Jenks for this very special Christmas gift.
The Weeds were my mother Mary’s great-grandparents. As I recall the family story, the elderly Mary Weed lived for a time with Mom’s parents on their Delaware County farm. Mom remembered her father addressing the old woman as “Mrs. Easy Weed,” which was either an expression of affection or Minnesota passive-aggression.
This precious gift brings the Weeds alive and restores them to family gatherings.
