One thought on “The museum

  1. I’m not sure if anyone wil be interested in the following:My mother,Bertha I. Johnson(maiden name:Connors) is 95yrs.,her mind is slowly going and it won’t be long before She joins Her brothers,sisters and my grandparents.Mom was born on 6thst? In 1923 and is the last of 7 as well as the last Connors(Ruth,Ted,Jim,Beryl,Helen and Marcie).I grew up hearing stories of Baby Doe Tabor and her husband and their life ties to Leadville,also of Molly Brown.Mom,one could easily see in her eyes when She talked about Leadville her eyes would light up.Bertha is my Mom and the best Person I ever knew.I feel like a tiny quiet piece of Leadville history is about to slip away and I felt a need to let someone in Leadville know that the last Connors,a proud Leadville daughter,is about to be welcomed into Heaven and a wonderful family re-union. Thank You,Greg Johnson ph:5093509121 if you like 😊 p.s. She and Her sisters favorite pet was a burro named Pickles
