LEILA AND HER CHILDREN
From left to right is my Sister, Janice Raachel (Frankel) Rieks, "Jan", my Mother, Leila Elizabeth
(Davis) Koscove, "Leila", my Brother, John David
Frankel, "Johnny", me,
Elizabeth Louise (Frankel) Gunderson, "Liz" and my Sister, Leila Dale
(Whitted) Rucker, "Dale" or "Lee".
he above picture was taken in
1973/1975 at Stapleton
Airport, Denver, Colorado. All of us "Girls" lived
in the Denver area with our husbands and children. We went to the
airport to spend some time with our Brother, "John",
who was flying from Oklahoma, where he attended an FAA training class,
to his home in Oregon, with a two hour layover in Denver. John was
an Air Traffic Controller for the FAA at the time. If John appears to be
standing oddly it is because he has a cast on his left leg and was
on crutches. It seems that during a break between classes he and
his FAA friends engaged in a spirited basketball game and he
re-injured his knee.
We had a wonderful visit with John and another Air Traffic Controller
who was with him on the flight. In fact the camera used to take the
above picture as well as others that day was mine.
My Brother's friend took a picture of all five of us. It turned out so well that I had it enlarged to 8 x 10 for all
of us as a Christmas present that year.
Myself, my Sister, Jan, and my Brother, John, are all still living with
children and grandchildren. My Mother born 7-11-1913, died 2-7-1998. My
Sister Dale born 2-11-1934, died 1-26-2001.
