Treasure Chest Thursday My Grandmother Alta Zion's Letters

I never knew my Grandmother Alta Louise Zion, my father's mother. She was born to Arthur Hall and Mabel Jane (Coleman) Hall on June 26, 1892 in Evansville, Wisconsin.
She married Perry Zion on February 21, 1944 and had five children John, George, Arthur ( my dad) and his twin sister Alice and Joe. She died from cancer 1944 and I was not born till September 1948.
I have very little of what she owned. I have a few pieces of china, an autograph book that is priceless to me ( my grandfather wrote in it ), a souvenir that her mother received from her father from the Chicago World's Fair of 1893 and I have a few letters she wrote to my father and mother.
Tonight for Treasure Chest Thursday I am scanning and sharing one of them.
Winlock Washington Nov 22, 1943
