Ohio Christmas Memory

 Here is a Christmas Memory from my grand aunt,

 Viola Cathern (Mark) Nothstein, 1913 OH – 2004 FL, 

daughter of Thomas K. & N. Regina (Gruissy) Mark.

 She talked about Christmas in Ohio when she was a girl, one of seven children.

Thomas Kenneth & Nancy Regina V. (Gruissy) Mark

Viola said her father, Thomas Kenneth Mark, 1879 - 1975, dressed up as Santa Claus for the program at church. He wore a red costume from the church. Viola said, “I remember one year when we were pretty small Owen got up in church and said, ‘That’s my Daddy!’ Another time Dad had a turkey for the church.  After the program Daddy come over to home and he had the red suit on and he’d said. ‘Now you guys better be in bed before I get back.’ He always done a lot around the church. If they wanted anything fixed they would always ask Dad.”
