One June Award Home Has 46 Years of Southwood Park Memories
Linda and Dick Morris of 4426 Beaver remember 1966, when 56 kids lived on their block. Linda loves that so many families have raised big families in “small” Southwood Park houses. They raised their own two children in theirs, doing bits of inside remodeling through time. Twenty years ago they added a deck and redid the back garden for their daughter’s wedding. Further back, 45 years ago Helene Foellinger knocked on their door and handed Dick a bunch of metal edging, asking him to install it in his backyard to deter his dirt from ending up on her tennis court. The tennis court and the edging are still there.
For sure Dick and Linda’s home is truly part of the family and its memories. Their front garden is always the picture of meticulous and loving care and last year they added a very inviting and now award winning front entrance … a great spot for future memories perhaps.
