My Great-Grandma-Velma J. Barwick

She was born on February 27, 1910 in Tacoma, Washington. She died in september of 1998.

Her Life

She lived through WW1 in Tacoma, Washington. There weren't many major earthquakes or natural disasters in Washington, so that was a plus. She survived the great depression in the 1930's, then divorced, and moved in December of 1942. She moved to Oakland, CA, and had a job mending the Armed Forces Uniforms. Although WW2 started in 1939 when Germany attacked Poland, We didn't join until Japan attacked the pearl harbor on December 8, 1941. Both her brothers were in WW2, her brother Gene was a paratrooper and deployed into Germany. Her other brother Louis was a cook for the army. They both lived and came home. We bombed and raided Germany in 1943, so i'm guessing he was dropped in then.
