Example Memory: My grandfather Will Magner was a tall man with a soft voice, he wore a vest & pocket watch with a chain. Will always wore a hat like Urban (my father) did . Grandma Katie Carolan Magner wore a flowered apron made from feed sack material. I remember getting dressed in my best dress and going to Sunday morning Mass in the car with my mother Lillian and my father Urban in the front seat while Lorraine, Delores, & Kay sat in the back seat of the car. We always sat in the same pew at Mass.
