This is maybe simply a “small world” coincidence of names, but I believe my mother’s given name also was Helen Louise Wharton. Subject to check, I believe Mom was born in Illinois in 1917. After Mom’s passing, my dad remarried and our family later moved to Seymour, Indiana, where I graduated from Seymour High School in 1972, not so far from Vernon, Indiana.
It’s a small world!!
