“Marilyn came over to our house for Dinner, that I remember. She wore this beautiful white dress, that had pink flowers on it. Her hair was rather short, curled and lovely. She smelt of lavender and roses. My dad brought her in the house. This was in 1955. I was 19 years old. She wasn’t too much older, I guess? She looked young, and beautiful. She was rather quiet, at least, she spoke quietly. She really did. She said hello to each of us and my mother said hello to her. I wasn’t sure what my mother’s feelings were about Marilyn, but she seemed generous to Marilyn . Marilyn proved to us that she wasn’t damaged, but she was mending, and she seemed to enjoy Dad and us. She sat down across from me. Dad helped her in her seat and she seemed to enjoy us. She asked all of our names, after all, dad had four boys, and I was the oldest. She loved children, and it was apparent. She wanted them, and I don’t know if she ever did have any children? My fondest memory of Miss Monroe, was that, of when I met her. She died, not too long after we met. Dad was a bit upset and a bit surprised. No one knows how she died, everyone has their own theory, like dad told us about Miss Olive Thomas, who death ended in the same fashion. All in all, I was just lucky, to have had met this wonderful woman, regardless of her flaws”-my co-worker’s father on Miss Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn Monroe came to the library in 1953, 55, and in 56. She met my co-worker’s family on the 14th of July in 1955. She was at the height of her career then.
