50th Anniversary of Essie & Scott Limes, 1946

Submitted by Linda


Note by Submitter: This photograph of the celebration of the 50th wedding anniversary of my grandparents, Essie and Scott Limes, was taken on Sunday, June 9, 1946. An announcement of their anniversary party was published in the Lorain Journal on Friday, June 7. Their other children were Tom, Al, and Harry. Essie died on December 28, 1948. Ernest, their eldest son, is the gentleman seated in the chair on the porch. Essie and Scott Limes lived at 1234 Ninth Street in Lorain. Scott Limes lived at the home until his death in 1959 at age 84. On Friday, May 15, 1959, he fell down his basement stairs, presumably walking down to the only bathroom in the small home. Later that day a neighbor found him lying at the bottom of the stairs. He died from his injuries the following day and was buried next to his wife on May 18 at Lorain's Elmwood Cemetery.
