This is my Mom's High School picture so she was still a Herndon, she's 15 in this picture, but by the time she turned 16 she was married to James Oscar Brintle Jr. and was 1 month away from having her 1st son. She was a wonderful loving mother and her 4 kids always came first, she died in 2001, 30 years and 1 day after Dad died, she was 67.
When I first put this picture on AncientFaces it was black & White a wonderful man named Major Chance saw it and sent it back to me colorized. It looks so much better, I have looked at the B&W one for 33 years it sure is a change for the better this way.
All My Thanks
