I've "rescued" an old photograph of Edith PASCHKE which was taken at a studio in Everett, WA. The photograph appears to have been taken in the early 1900's with Edith in her teens at the time it was taken. Based on limited research and thanks to a family researcher I was able to gather the following information regarding Edith and her family:

Edith M. PASCHKE was b. 19 May 1894 in Everett, WA to parents Alexander Carl Gustav PASCHKE (b. 1867 in Liverpool, England-1942) and Lillian C. or K. GUILFOIL (1870 or 1871-1938). Edith was one of 7 children born to this couple including, Ethel Lillian; Edith M.; Ruth Annie or Ann; Carl Allen; Dorris or Doris Gretchen; Gerald A.; and one other all born between 1893 and 1912. Edith married Clarence Hiram WATTERS (1892-1940) and together they had two children, Kathleen Barbara WATTERS (1921-2005) and Robert Lisle WATTERS (1925-2016). Edith was married a second time to Harry W. BETTS (1885-1974) and she died 11 Sept 1969 in Everett, WA.

Edith’s sister Ruth Ann married Ulysses A. DEGMAN but they don’t appear to have had any children and they later divorced and Ruth Ann married Mr. MONROE. Edith’s Father died in 1942 in Everett, WA with his obit indicating that he was one of the original men who platted the City of Everett and was most recently working with the Everett City Water Dept. The family lived on Rockefeller Avenue in Everett. His surviving children are listed as Mrs. Edith M. BETTS of Everett; Mrs. Doris CHARLES of Marysville, WA; Mrs. Ruth E. MONROE of Seattle, WA; and Mrs. Edith CLARE of CUDIWORTH, Saskatchewan, Canada; Carl A. PASCHKE of San Bernardino, CA; and Gerald A. PASCHKE of the Philippine Islands. He was also survived by two sisters, Mrs. W. J. BRITT of Everett; Mrs. P. A. BOSIEN of Braintree, MA; and brothers B. W. PASCHKE of Riverside, CA; Percey PASCHKE of Comoix, BC, Canada; and George PASCHKE of Salt Spring Island, BC, Canada.

Of Irish and German descent, with relatives all over western Washington and Canada, this lovely young lady shouldn't be a "found photo."
