Friday's Photo/Loraine McGreevy Reum
This sweet little cherub is Loraine McGreevy, she was two years old when the above photo was taken. Loraine was born in Chicago in 1894 to Thomas McGreevy, an Irish immigrant who operated a saloon on State Street, and his wife Theresa. Sometime between the 1900 and 1910 censuses Theresa passed away and Thomas remarried, this time to a German immigrant named Mary.
Thomas himself died in 1915, the year after Loraine had married Arthur Reum in Chicago. Thomas never met his grandson Russell who was born in 1916, or his granddaughter Loraine Jr. born in 1920.
Loraine McGreevy passed away in 1973, four months before her 80th birthday, in Homewood, Cook County, Illinois.
