Today in 1942.... 69 years ago.
It must have been a terribly sad for Nettie and likely for everyone on my short street. They had been living in my little house for 10 years -- purchased in 1932.
Nettie continued to live here at least through 1975 -- that's as far as I've researched so far. Assuming she and Scott were roughly the same age, in 1975 she would have been in her mid/late 70's. She was clearly the longest resident of my house.
