Ruth Nadine Alexander and her mother, Wilhemina (Schoor) Alexander at Lake Taneycomo, Missouri, about 1928.

Since many folks will be heading off to lakes and beaches or just a picnic pavilion in a park this first big weekend of summer, here is a picture of two of our Lee ancestors relaxing at the lake. The place was Lake Taneycomo in southern Missouri, and the time was probably about 1928.

Ruth Nadine Alexander, on the left, was born 01 Feb 1906 in Missouri to George Harrington Alexander (1879-1951) and Wilhemina Schoor (1882-1942), on the right. Ruth was the second of six children, and lived in Missouri all her life.

On 27 Jul 1929, Ruth married Lloyd Eugene “Gene” Lee in Marshfield, Missouri. Their only child, Robert Eugene Lee, was born in 1932.

Sadly, Ruth died at the young age of 46 on 1 Dec 1953 in St. Louis, Missouri.
