Sometime in June 1948, or thereabouts, George Edwin Farrar met his future bride and my mother, Miss Bernice Jane Chase of Meno, Oklahoma. Meno was a wheat farming community twenty miles from Enid. In the 1940’s, Bernie worked for Montgomery Ward in Enid, doing office work.
Ed’s brother Carroll was married to Bernie’s friend Millie, the former Mildred Dustin of Enid, Oklahoma. Millie provided a few pictures of Bernie to Ed, they met, and hit it off immediately.
Ed was a traveling salesman and was on the road most of the time, so much of their courtship was through exchanges of letters and pictures.
With the war behind him, and a bright future in front of him, it was time for George Edwin Farrar to take time for love and thoughts of marriage and a family of his own.
