Memorial 3

Willis Elmer and Winona Gladys Yeager Justice

Many of us have attended Veterans Day memorials and Memorial Day events at our local cemeteries. My earliest memory is of going on a sunny May Memorial Day afternoon with my grandmother. She picked white Gardenias off of her own shrubs and we went to my grandfather’s grave site. He was a World War I veteran. While I can call myself a native Californian, she was born in Alabama. They migrated to Fresno in 1928. They had rented the Egger’s ranch, south of the current Fresno Yosemite International Airport.
I thank Fresno County Historical Society for printing a memorial event invitation in their latest issue of Ash Tree Echo, Vol.48, Issue 1, March 2013. They do not have an “online” publication, but can be followed on Facebook at
