Today I am posting photos of mothers on both sides of my family to honor their memories for Mother’s Day this coming Sunday.
My mom and I:
My grandmother Hilda (Scaer) Schumm with her three daughters:
My great-grandmother Lizzie (Schinnerer) Scaer with her granddaughter Amy (my aunt Amy).
Sarah (Breuninger) Schumm, my great-grandmother, mother of my grandfather Cornelius Schumm:
My great-grandmother Christine (Rueck) Miller and her family:
Gertrude (Brewster) Miller, my grandmother, with her family:
Five generations. Gertrude Brewster, my grandmother, was the little girl:
My great-great-grandmother Emily (Bryan) Reid and her daughter, my great-grandmother Pearl (Reid) Brewster.
My grandmother Gertrude (Brewster) Miller and her mother Pearl (Reid) Brewster:

Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers everywhere.
