Happy Birthday, Grandma Mollie

Mollie_Margheim_with_Dennis_and_BeckyWhen my twin brother Dennis and I were toddlers, our parents divorced and our Grandma Mollie Margheim stepped in to help Dad care for us until Dad remarried two years later. She became the most important person in our lives. She remained that special wonderful Grandma the rest of her life, which ended in 1986.

Amalia “Mollie” Koleber Margheim was born in Kratzke, Saratov, Russia October 6, 1902. She immigrated with her dad George, mother Katie and two older brothers to America in July, 1904.

John_&_Mollie_1968 Every October 6th I think of her with such dear, loving memories and want to wish my dear Grandma Mollie “Happy Birthday” today.
