Almeta Merle Marrs
Almeta was born 21 Mar 1923 in Valier, Franklin Co., Illinois to Wiley Brooks and Maude Elsie (nee Golden) Marrs. She has always spelled her middle name "Merle", however when a copy of her birth certificate recently arrived the name was spelled "Myrle". Surprise!!! Almeta was about a year old when her mother died. She was reared by an aunt and uncle, Nancy Hanks (nee Marrs) and Claude John Simmons, (Mom and Pop to Almeta; Nanny and PeeWee to the community), so many of her school chums probably think of her as a Simmons, from Chirstopher, Franklin Co., Illinois.
Meta passed away 10 Jun 2009 at her home in Plymouth, Wayne Co., Michigan.
