The End

That was the final post for Ada's five year diary. She has other diaries that I will post, but I'm taking a break for awhile.
The following year (1920) Ada does not keep a diary. It was a very sad year for her. Marion, her close friend, and sister in law - wife of Fred Grimshaw  - dies in childbirth. I think Ada must have been devastated.
And then later that year, Ada loses a baby boy at birth - in a very traumatic manner.
Her next diary (1921) alludes to the sadness of losing the baby - and the belief that "E" blames her for the loss.
Later diaries that I have of hers are happier.
I'll probably start up again on January 1st, 2016. Thanks for following, those of you who have been, and see you next year.


  1. Thanks Deborah for sharing Ada's diary. I will look forward to following along again next year.
    How sad that Marion dies in childbirth and that Ada loses a baby boy. It must have been a tough year for her but she was strong and steady and I'm glad that there were happier days in her future.

  2. Thanks for being my most loyal follower, Frances! (Along with Joe.) : )
    See you next year!
