Notes:  I was born on the old Newt and Fannie Adams Place located between Farmer and Vandalia in the deep rural area of Missouri.  As my brother, Mack, and I were the senior grandchildren of our grandparents, we were much closer in age to my aunts and uncles than we were to our cousins, so I've enjoyed the privilege of being addressed as Aunt Wanda by most of my first and second cousins.

My early years of school were at Concord, Vannoy, and Tuscumba, Missouri grade schools.  My ninth birthday was spent in Fresno, California.  We lived there for a year, and I finished grade school in Huron, California.  While living there, we were bused to my favorite high school, Coalinga High, 16-miles from Huron.  We again moved to a nearby Click to enlarge oilfield town about the same distance from Huron where I finished out my Junior year.  My father was following construction work at that time so my Senior year was spent at four different high schools:  Grass Valley, Oroville, Marysville, and Grant Union High in Sacramento where I graduated.  To say we bounced around a bit is putting it mildly, yet my brother and I seemed to adapt well.  I dearly loved school and scholastically fared well enough in spite of all of our moving, but I had to do a lot of studying.  However, it would be fair to say I more-than-likely was much more interested in the opposite sex and having a good time dancing than striving toward any academic achievement.

After my first marriage (1941) and divorce (1944), I remained in St. Louis as a telephone operator for Southwestern Bell's Evergreen Exchange and lived with my Aunt Dorothy where she sent me to Rubicam Business School.  After Business School, my second cousin, Daisy Pearl Hanson and I shared an apartment.  I worked as a secretary for several companies throughout my life.  My favorite secretarial work was at Juvenile Court, first at the main Court in Clayton where I worked for all the departments except Detention, and for the judge and director.  Later on, I was appointed as the only Secretary of North County Juvenile Court.  It was a great job, not far from our home.  As our Tennis Court business [with Lloyd Eaton, my second husband] grew, eventually I had to leave the Court to help my husband in our own business.
