Monday Is for Mothers: Anna Delilah Webb (1891 - 1963)

We know from her obituaries that my maternal grandmother was a charter member of the Niwot Garden Club which was founded in 1938.

This photograph seems to date from 1946 when the club decided to create a community garden across from the train depot. (Note that Anna is the shortest woman in this group.)

From the Slater family collection we have this 1963 group photo of Garden Club members out in a chrysanthemum field. (Anna appears to have some competition for the shortest person here.)
