My hubby found this photo of an April 1946 wedding shower given by his mother Kathryn (Cutter) Maki for neighbor Sylvia Joki. The shower was held at the Cutter homestead on Shaffer Road, Newfield, NY. Hubby suspects his mother did not let on that she was pregnant (with him) at the time of the shower.
