Love Letters from Prairie du Rocher: Epilogue

1. Joseph Perry Micheau and Edna Julia Lewis were married on 27 November 1913, at St. Francis Xavier Church, in Carbondale, Illinois.  They were married for 62 years before Joe died in 1975.  On their 50th wedding anniversary in 1963, they received a special telegram from Pope John XXIII.

2.  She was, at the end of the day, a practical woman: Of all the letters that were reproduced in the last post, it was the one of June 15, 1913 that Joseph found the most difficult to write. And it’s evident by her poignant reply that Edna must have recognized this.  However, at some point, after receiving that letter, Edna used it to write her shopping list.
