Clara Edwards ("Gay Gay")



born 1885, Iowa; died 1960, San Jose, California

Pops wife, mother of Don and Tom Edwards.  She and Pop lived in an amazing home in the foothills behind San Jose.  We would spend idyllic vacations there with Tom and Bob Twist.  

Gay Gay was an ardent Christian Scientist, and never went to a doctor.  When we visited, we were obliged to attend her daily readings of Mary Baker Eddy's Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, a small price to pay for the fun we had at her home.  I wish I had more pictures of her - if any of you readers have any, please send them to me!
