Melba Easterday

My Great Aunt Melba was recently named as a Citizen of the Year by the Culver Lions Club. (See the Article to the right). I’ve written about her here before. (previous posts here and here)

She has had a long and interesting life. She is the last surviving member of the second generation of Easterday Construction Co., Inc. She was married to Edward Lee (Red) Easterday, Russell’s middle son and she worked for the company for a time during World War II when Red was in the service.

She’ll be celebrating her 100th Birthday next month. It’s great to have her represent that generation of our family. She has long served as the family historian and I hope to learn a few more anecdotes the next time I can see her. Unfortunately she’s currently living at Millers Merry Manor in Culver and with Covid restrictions, I haven’t seen her in over a year.

Thank you to the Lions Club for recognizing her contributions to the community. I won’t reiterate what’s in the article, but I know it only scratches the surface.
