    Very pretty mother. Any idea of what happened to her gown?

  4. Brenda Leyndyke Says:

    Thank you, Barbara. I think the dress eventually was thrown out. I remember as a child seeing it in a box in a closet. My mother took it out once and showed me and the lace was brittle and the netting was in bad shape.
