FC: Dorothy & Charlie Scott
1: Welcome to a pictorial travel through the lives of Dorothy and Charlie. Charlie Tappan Scott 9-13-13 - 7-20-79 Son of David 10-12-89 - 5-9-71 and Elsa Irene 11-29-1891 - 11-19-49 brother to Lois 8-3-11 - 95 Dorothy Frances Cook 12-13-12 - 10-24-2009 Daughter of Claire Risely Cook 9-15-1891 - 1978 Florence Dorman 1-16-1891 - 9-13-93 Sister to Gertrude 9-30-14 - 2004 Bill 6-12-16 - 11-2007 Harriette 2-6-23 Charlie and Dorothy met at a fourth of July high school picnic in 1930. Charlie was in one of Dorothy's classes the year before and mother remembers he put his feet up on the back of her desk and they were smelly. Obviously having fun together erased the smelly feet and it was Cookie and Chuck forever together from that day! Enjoy the book as we travel down memory lane of the Scott family. A lot of these pictures are ninety plus years old, thus the poor quality but it is all we have. The best we can do for our loved ones is to remember them forever.
