Narrative

Grandpa George W. Lowrey owned a store in Victorville, California. Grandpa George ran the store and Grandma Celia was in bed. Rebecca remembers her Grandmother was always in bed from arthritis. She had a bar she could pull herself up with to sit up in bed.

Rebecca remembers when she would visit, she & her parents would live in the back of the store. She said she wasn't very old at the time. She remembers Grandpa George had no sight in his left eye. Evidently, he was shot by a gun in a gun accident when he was a young boy and lost his sight. Grandma Celia was alright and worked in the store at first until she could no longer because of the arthritis when she became bedridden. Rebecca always remembered that Uncle Howard would say, " Watch your weight, or you'll be like Grandma. So, Rebecca thinks Grandma Celia was heavy weight.

Uncle Howard & Rebecca were just about the same age, but Howard was just alittle bit older, so as kids, they would go up onto the hills and slid down the hill in garbage can lids from the store. The store was on the corner on the last street in the town. Later, after they moved from Victorville to Mentone, San Bernardino Co., the story goes that Grandma Celia was sitting in her rocking chair when lighting struck through the door and scooted her across the room in her rocking chair. Rebecca remembers that Grandpa & Grandma Lowrey were both gone by the 1940's. - Memories of Rebecca Lowrey Wooliscroft, from Arlene Teller Duncan
