Sharing Memories With Mary Volkert
By Larry Johnson
   Mary Volkert was born 90 years ago on October 19, 1917, in Appleton, Wisconsin. The event was doubly distinguished by the fact that it was the 7th anniversary of her sister Eleanor's birthday. According to Mary, Eleanor was unimpressed, and her own celebration unaffected, by the arrival of a baby sister.
     Appleton was a small Midwestern college town when Mary was growing up and it provided a secure and friendly atmosphere. Her father and his brother owned and operated a meat market and grocery store, and, Mary remembers, that the family managed to have good food and to eat well even during The Great Depression.
