Adventures with Cordy, October 12, 1976

[Below is days 36 in a series of road trip diary installments. To get the full context, start with Adventures with Cordy: A Road Trip Diary and follow the trail from there. --Amy]

October 12, (Tuesday)

Day of departure for the California. TOO BAD, but we were all so thankful for a wonderful, fun, pleasant and safe trip that the good-bys were made easier. We thank you Doris and Jack for being such nice people and so good to us.


Imogene and Lynn

This concludes the 1976 travel diary titled,"Adventures with Cordy." The Fearsom Foursome, anchored by siblings Lynn and Doris, continued to visit each other regularly for many years.

In 1984, Lynn was stricken with Guillain-Barre Syndrome. His mobility was severely comprimised, as was his active lifestyle. He continued to maintain his positive attitude and joyful life spirit until his death in 1998.

Jack continued to work well after his Western Auto years. He always had opinions about business and customer service until the day he died in 2001.

Doris, all 4'11" of her, was fiercely proud of her family. Much of my motivation in regards to family history stems from this fact. She would be very pleased with what I've found thus far. She passed away in 2004.

Imogene continued to live in the same house and drive a big yellow Cadillac after Lynn's death. She was an extremely kind and generous person, and it was a pleasure to have known her. She passed away at 96 in 2007.

Thanks for following along in the Adventures with Cordy series. I know these entries were geared toward a small group of relatives who actually knew the players, but I decided to share this bit of my family with a wider audience. I hope you enjoyed it.
