Ada (Temple) Reese's heirloom

Updated: Aug 1, 2019

This antique rolling pin was given to me by my great-aunt, Mary Ruth. It belonged to my 2nd great-grandmother, Ada (Temple) Reese, the wife of Maynard Reese and mother of ten. I can imagine there must have been a lot of baking going on in their home!

While I never had a chance to meet her, I have seen photos and heard stories and she seems to have been the portrait of an all-American grandma. Together with this photo of her wearing her apron, I can almost smell an apple pie baking in the oven.
