Two Fisher Family Wedding Days

My maternal grandmother, Marie Bourassa Fisher, at age 21 on her wedding day August 13, 1928. She’s accompanied by her Uncle Albert, who gave her away. She would become the matriarch of a family of 14 children, 69 grandchildren and, to date, over 100 great-grandchildren. Found only in 2013, this image is the only one the family has of her wedding day.

The Fisher family on the day of a double wedding for my aunts Jackie and Babe. My mother, Janie, was the first of the children to wed two years earlier. This was one way to save money, given you have 9 daughters!
