Happy Anniversary, Uncle Merle!

Yesterday, Dec 29th, would have been my granduncle Merle’s wedding anniversary. On 29 Dec 1926, Merle Hemingway McCormack would marry his first wife, Lois Muriel Baker in Flint, Michigan [1]. She was the daughter of Eldon E. Baker[2], the founder of Baker Business University located in Flint, Michigan. They would stay married until Lois McCormack’s unfortunate death on 8 Jun 1954 [3]. At the time of her death, she was visiting relatives in Winterset, Iowa. So Uncle Merle and Aunt Lois were married for 27 years, 5 months, 11 days. Congratulations for being married that long! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you learned something new!
