This is a rare photo, I even think it's the only one, of both my grandmothers. It was taken at my parents engagement party, which must have been sometime around 1973.
On the left you can see my paternal grandmother, Marijt, who was born on March 5th 1918 and died June 21st 1999. On the right my maternal grandmother, Everdina Petronella (Nel for short), born April 2nd 1912 and died June 16th 1985.
I sometimes envy people who have known their great-grandparents and who have grandparents for a longer period than I did. Well, at least we can still look at the photo's and reminisce.
