Photos from Aunt Helen's collection, circa 1927 to present:
In the first photo:
Grandmother Anna K Loewen born 1876-May01;
Grandfather Peter R Penner born 1877-Jan22;
- the photo is circa 1927 on the basis of: Grandmother died in 1937 and she was skinny for a number of years before her death (from Aunt Helen).
In the second photo:
Helen L Penner (Aunt Helen) born 1918-May;
Isaac P Penner born 1913, later married Margaretha F Friesen;
Elizabeth K Penner, later became Taunte Liesa by marrying Uncle Abe R Reimer;
Henry B Reimer born 1916-Jan;
Margaret Penner, married Henry J Reimer in 1944-Feb;
Cornelius P D Reimer born 1916-May;
- the photo is from circa 1935: since Aunt Helen recalls she was not yet 18 years old.
In the third photo:
back row: Abram L Penner (Uncle Abe), Abram K Plett (Uncle Obrum);
middle row: Brandt boy, David Penner, Raynold (Roy) Penner, Mervin Penner;
seated: Art Plett;
- the partially identified boy is a Brandt and a cousin to David & Roy Penner, probably William son of Abram U Brandts;
- the identified boys were born between 1934-Feb and 1936-Oct, ergo the photo is from 1943 or thereabouts.
In the fifth photo: Uncle Abe is on the left, the other man is unidentified; it is somewhere in the USA while Uncle Abe was working with a threshing crew circa 1930.
