My story starts September 1943 on the streets of Vancouver
I met Marshall Gwaltney Pfc, .Army. For a short time we got to know one
another. I was able to visit on the base four or five times.
In November 1943 Marshall left Vancouver for Hawaii and
after training for some time he headed for the South Pacific and was there all through that war
He came home after tow years and eight months. We married the 29th of December of 1945.
We were married 48 years and had four children.
Marshall, better known as Ray, passed away June 13, 1993, of Lou Gehrig’s disease. He was 68. He is at Venesborg Cemetery.
