Myrtle Irene Jones Foster (1895-1991)

This is Anna's maternal grandmother, Myrtle Irene Jones Foster (1895-1991).  She was born in the Alpharetta, Georgia, area  and died in Marietta, Georgia, at age 95.  Irene's parents are Walter Vernon Jones and Mintoria Mathis Jones.   

Her husband  Paul Everett Foster (1895-1936) died when Irene was 41 years old with four children to raise.  She fed her children by continuing her late husband's profession of repairing Singer Sewing Machines;  taking care of children; being a practical nurse; and having a garden. 

The kids, two sons and two daughters grew up to be fine adults.
