Peaches the Cat

December 30, 2002

Here is Peaches the cat. She lived to be 20 years old. She was born at our house (her mother was Anne-Marie’s cat Taffy) in Terre Haute, IN. She came with us to Manasass, VA and then moved again when my parents retired to Columbia, SC.

After nine months of being close, the Brazil, IN Glen-Gery Plant re-opened. Initially 60 people were laid off and 29 people were brought back. My father, Bob Wilkinson, is interviewed in the local paper. This would have been during the Early 1980’s Recession, also known as the “Reagan Recession”.
