’72 Grandmother: This etching print of my Mother’s mother, Mildred Stookey, née Wilkinson, was done on a zinc plate. She was the wife of a gentleman farmer and they lived in a brick two story Italianate farmhouse with a copper mansard roof. As children we used to ring the outside bell that had been used to call the farmhands in from the fields for their meals. I learned that my Mother’s elder sister, Margie, would drive a horse drawn wagon into the nearby village for fun.
