I remember Doris and her family when they lived on Wyoming Street because I had the good fortune to babysit for their two young sons when I was a teenager. Doris would always leave the dirty dishes for me to do after the boys went to bed. Of course, I would get extra pay for that job. Also. I could help myself to whatever was around to eat or drink. Their house was where I was first introduced to orange tang. They probably had to buy a new jar every time I babysat for them The Wartman's were a loving family and my deepest condolences to the family. Mary (Quinn) Peterson class of (65)
