    I worked with Relda at National Studio in the late 60's, learning to print the color portraits.

    Her attached portrait is tintited color before the new color that we were learnning. Relda's good friend Kitty Wiggins tinted the color then and retouched the negatives.

    Thanks for publishing her tinted portrait of an earlier time! Robert (Bob) Young-Cedar Falls

    Sorry to hear of Relda's passing.  I have memories of going out to their farm in my youth.  She was friendly and accepting of us 'wild' teenagers.  Classy lady.                                     Sincerely,   Julie Wessels-Thompson
