at Home in New Jersey
In August 1944, Mom returned home to
New Jersey to again live with her parents. She got a job and waiting
out the war writing letters. She worked most of the time at a label
factory about two blocks from her parent's home. With the rationing
of gasoline, this was a real plus.
Here is a photo of her in Tampa, Florida. The writing on the back of
the photo is my dad's: "Jo + our apartment. The 3 windows are our
bedroom. Or kitchen is in the back of the house. Taken Jan. 1943.
One website which describes the life of women during the war is:
Did You Do in the War Grandma".
