Peggy & James Miller
One day when Peggy was at the local drugstore she met a “soda jerk” by the name of James Miller.
He took her to the junior school play where they talked and she said she was “very giggly.” They often went to shows then out to dinner and on Sunday nights Jimmy would take her to the Jack and Andy Diner.
Her parents liked Jimmy right away and they dated for four years straight. Part of that time he was in the Navy and it was World War II. When he proposed to her she said “yes” right away because she had missed him so much during the time he was in the Navy.
They were married in November 1943. They had a big church wedding at St. John’s Church in New Hartford followed by a lunch reception at the Utica hotel. Following that, there was a family reception at her grandparents house.
They only had a few days of honeymoon because Jimmy was on leave. They spent four days in the bridal suite at the Hotel Syracuse. When they came back home his mother Grace and sister, Inez, had a surprise party for them.
They lived on Singer Avenue in New Hartford, New York.
Jimmy worked hard at the New York Telephone Company and many children soon followed: Brian in 1945 Keith in 1948, Cheryl 1950, and Karen 1951,Pam came along 10 years later after they had moved to Riverside California.
Peggy was a good cook and learned to cook when she was in high school.
Before that she didn’t do much except when her mother was in the hospital. She first learned to cook cakes, French fries, and creampuffs.
Peggy was a good mother and homemaker and Jimmy helped out around the house.
Jimmy and Peggy divorced in the early 70’s.
Peggy & Port Barron
Peggy remarried, Port Barron.
Port was a Quality Assurance Engineer at ITT, with 3 grown children of his own.
Needless to say, the Christmas gatherings swelled in size, but they were always full of love.
Peggy’s advice for her 15 grandchildren and numerous great-grandchildren is: Be good, respectful, considerate, and cherish your parents. Above all else, try not to worry your parents.
