March 18 — Shining star: Did you have a female ancestor who had a special talent? Artist, singer, actress, athlete, seamstress, or other? Describe.
There have been a lot of musicians in my family and a few artists and singers. Pictured at left are my grandmother Anna Lee Pulskamp Creeden on the violin and her sister Emma Lee Pulskamp Art on the piano. My great-grandmother Anna Niehaus Creeden was an artist and we still have one of her oil paintings in the family. My mother and her three sisters sang on the radio when they were in school. Sure wish I had a recording of that!
