(Not So) Wordless Wednesday – Marguerite Gunther

Posted by: Eileen A. Souza

For me, this theme will be used to share my family photos and to post my mystery photos in hopes that someday I’ll be able to solve them.

Above is a photo of my great-aunt, Marguerite Gunther and her husband, Frank Olshefski, taken on their wedding day, 31 August 1946 in Ranshaw, Northumberland County, Pennsylvania. Both are deceased, but Sunday would have been their sixty-eighth (68th) anniversary. My mother, Marguerite (Noble) Furlani, was named after this aunt.

The following is my mystery photo.  This photo was unidentified and in the box of photos that my sisters and I inherited from our mother.  It was possibly taken in the 1940s. I believe it may be Marguerite Gunther, the bride in the photo above.

If possible, I would like to firm up the identifications, so I am open to any information or corrections concerning this photo.

    I really enjoy your website. I can tell you have worked really hard on it! I think these two ladies are the same person. Just my guess. Have a great one!

      my mom remembers her Great Aunt Margurite

      • I do too. she is one of the few relatives I met. I know we used to go to Shamokin when I was young to visit her. My mother, Marguerite Noble Furlani, was named after her and they were very close. I can remember “Aunt Gerald” only a little. I remember her in a wheelchair after she lost her leg from diabetes.
