[Gridley Sesquicentennial 1856 - 2006, Biographies of Gridley Residents 80 and 90 Plus Club]
(Transcribed by: Teri Moncelle Colglazier)

Born may 7, 1913, I was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the daughter of George Washing Kurtz Farrington and Katharine Korb. I met and married Harry Laiming in 1934. We lived in Pennsylvania for a few years while Harry started his Engineering career with RCA. We had two children. During the way, Harry workid on secret projects for the government, especially those projects relating to the miniaturization of radios and communication systems. Later we moved to Cambridge, Ohio and then back to Moorestown, New Jersey all because of his work with RCA. Harry died in May of 1993. We had two children: Paul and Virginia, and I have two grandchildren and six great grandchildren. I moved from Moorestown, New Jersey to Gridley to be closer to family in 1998.
