Tommy, Kathleen, and Judy Sannar
These three kids are the children of Charles and Shirley (Kennison) Sannar. Since the picture is attached to a 1952 calendar, it would have most likely been taken sometime in 1951. Tommy would have been 11, Kathleen 3, and Judy 8. What a bunch of cutie-pie’s!
(Tommy, Thomas Alvin Sannar, is my dad.)
Shirley Marcilee (Kennison) Sannar taken in 1956.
Shirley is the wife of Charles Alvin Sannar; the mother of Thomas Alvin, Judith Anne, and Kathleen Marie. She is my grandmother.
James Franklin and Adah Gertrude (Hescock) Sannar.
Unfortunately, I don’t know the date that this picture was taken. James passed away in 1950, so it my guess is that this was in the mid to late 1940’s.
(James and Adah are my great-grandparents. They are the parents of Charles Alvin Sannar.)
William Isaac and Eliza Ann “Julia” (Carper) Sannar in Promise, Oregon. I’m not sure of the year on this one.
(William and Eliza are my 2nd great-grandparents. They are the parents of James Franklin Sannar.)
Charles “Toot” Alvin Sannar in Alaska on his fishing boat, The Natova. Here he is holding a King Salmon with a Halibut hanging.
(Toot is my paternal grandfather. He is the father of Thomas Alvin Sannar.)
“I started fishing with them on that boat, I slept in the wheelhouse, and to make room for me grandpa had to put the case of motor oil outside that was under the captains seat, and that’s where I slept. I have a lot of wonderful memories with them.” ~ Vernon Thornburg
