James & Edna McKenzie with Children
Ca. 1925, restored 2006 Cliff. Johnston

James & Edna McKenzie with Children

Glenboro, Manitoba, CANADA

James Douglas McKenzie, 1892-1939
Edna Maria Anderson, 1895-1978
Florence Irene McKenzie, 1917-2002
William Claude McKenzie, 1920-1993

Edna was my grandmother Florence (Anderson) Johnston's sister. My Dad had all kinds of great stories that he would tell me about his Aunt Edna. She knew the value of money. He said that she could squeeze a nickel and make it cry; however, she was very generous with him, at one point giving him a $5 bill which was a quite a gift in those days.

This photograph was probably taken when they lived in Glenboro, Manitoba, CANADA.

Great work Clifford. Our grandmother Florence Anderson Johnston certainly told me stories about having a lot of laughs with Edna. She said that when they were youngsters, they cut the flags out of a quilt much to their dad's dismay. Lots of memories from Granny J.
