    Charles Robert Grist talks to Gladys Strite about what happened in the years surrounding Franklin Grist's death in 1953. Topics include:




    • Louise Grist leaves her job as an art supervisor in Milwaukee to help Gladys in Appleton. After Franklin dies, she helps Gladys run Grist Furs and Fashions.

    • Gladys eventually sends Louise to California to fulfill her dream of teaching art there. She gets a job in Benicia.

    • Pat Gray follows to "convince Wese that he loves her."

    • What to do about the house at 24 Winona Court? Jim and Mary Grist are living in a small apartment; Charlie is on the way (born 19 May 1954). Gladys is in a too-big house.
      Lillian Cook [Coffitts] advises Gladys to wait on selling the house.

    • 2 April 1955: While Gladys is on vacation in Los Angeles, she goes up to Santa Barbara to meet up with Louise and Pat, where they got married. For a honeymoon, they stayed with Gladys in the home of Glady's cousin, Lloyd Strite. He and his wife, Lorraine, were away at the time.

    • Gladys proposes to share the house with Jim and Mary, creating a small apartment upstairs where she could live. They shared 24 Winona Ct. from about 1954 to 1959, when Gladys sold Grist Furs and Fashions.
