Lucille Maris is in the news again! This time, it is for her role as the star in the 2-disc audio cd set, Stories of a Stateside Bride, produced by me and my hubby, Scott Greeson, in the Hoosier Surf Records studio. An article appeared in the P.E.O. Record. Both mom and I are P.E.O.s and members of Chapter L in Indiana.
The P.E.O. Record is the bi-monthly magazine published by the P.E.O. sisterhood, a philanthropic educational organization. A recent issue featured the project we created after I had been including Mom’s stories on the ends of several episodes of the podcast, Heartsong Fit. The stories on the cd are interviews I did with Mom about her life as a young bride in the 1940s while married to my dad, Jim Maris.
Their marriage lasted for nearly 65 years until Dad passed on to be with the Lord in 2008.
Their journey started in their late teens when they met through mutual friends through a Sunday School class. Jim enlisted in the US Army Air Corps in 1942, and the couple married on Jan. 16, 1943. Lucille followed Jim around the United States as he was moved from military base to base for the various stages of his flight and combat training.
Their stories are mesmerizing.
