WHO: Helen Lucille Watkins Volgamore Cavey and her daughter, Etta Marie Volgamore Brady Suter
WHAT: In the kitchen at Helen's house on Cedar Park Lane
WHERE: Cottage Grove, OR
WHEN: Late 1950's
We spent some time last weekend in the Cottage Grove, OR area where the Watkins Clan made their homes for decades. My father spent most of his youth living with or nearby his maternal grandmother Helen. When I was 8, Great-Grandma Cavey (as I called her) spent time at E Street, taking care of me while my father worked rotating shifts at Weyerhauser. I don't remember much of my father's mother, Marie. She died shortly after my third birthday.
