Irene Celeste Graham

On July 9, 1928 my mother, Mamie Bomar was going cherry picking with her sister-in-law, Hallie Ward. Mom's plans changed, I was Born.

My father and mother were Albert and Mamie Bomar. I was one of the "Benson Babies" delivered by Dr. Benson in Fromberg, Montana.

I grew up in Fromberg, Montana and gradutaed school as Fromberg High School in 1946.

My oldest brother, Harold Orin Bomar was born May 2, 1926 and died by drowning May 2, 1928.

My younger brother, Irvin Levi Bomar was born Aug. 20, 1930. He married Josie Mitchell in England, who is now deceased. They have four children, two boys and two girls, and grandchildren.

He later married Linda and has two girls and several grandchildren and reside in Texas.
