Mrs. Marie Palmer was my first landlady and friend when I used to live in Chicago, near Avondale Elementary Public School on Kedzie Avenue between Wellington and George Streets. Marie Palmer was the widow of an Illinois Veterans who had fought during WWII. She worked at the Civic Opera on Wacker Drive and Madison St. as Executive Administrative Assistant. Mrs. Marie Palmer introduced me to the Grace Lutheran Church Ice Cream Social during the summers—she was German-American and had two adult children: Lilly Palmer, a Hollywood actress who starred in the classic film "The Little Foxes" and a son. Lilly Palmer lived in Colombia as the wife of a famous physician doctor with family.
Mrs. Marie Palmer was a retired religious Lutheran by faith, who was German-American resident homeowner, on the Northwest side of Chicago in 1971.
