Workday Wednesday - Employees of Stanfill Grocery Picnic at Grand Lake

 The employees of Stanfill Grocery & Produce in  Nowata, Oklahoma enjoyed a picnic for their families at Grand Lake o' the Cherokees in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains in northeastern Oklahoma.  This is probably between 1939 - 1941.  My grandparents, George and Easie Stanfill, the owners of the store, are second from the right in the back.


 The back of this photo says "wives of Stanfill Gro. employees."  Grandma is the lady being hugged.


















George Stanfill (second from left) and employees.  George died in August of 1941 at age 39, leaving Grandma to run the business until her remarriage several years later.
  Presumably, these are the children of the store employees.  My mother and her brother are the two taller children in the back row.
