Lucy Dee Wright – On this date in 1911

On this date the 28th of April IMG_0368in 1911, our maternal grandmother, Lucy Dee Wright was born in Manifest, Louisiana to John E. Wright and Grace Claudia Pierce. She was the sixth of 9 children.*

She married John Alvis LaPrarie and they had 3 children, John Louis LaPrarie, James Alvis LaPrarie, and our mom Nelda Grace LaPrarie Adams.

AKA: Granny, Dee, Mama Dee, and Miss Dee.

There is so much I can share about our dear granny, she is the inspiration for this entire website. She still to this day glows with a smile and a kind word.

Her collection of poems,  I Come to the Garden is available on Amazon.
