RUTH MERIAM SMITH [9]
Ruth Meriam Smith ( the author's mother) was born February 2, 1902 in Kansas City, Missouri. She was the second child and daughter of Claude E. and Ella Mae Hughes Smith. The Smiths were among the early pioneering families that had come from Kentucky, settling in Clay County, Missouri. The 1900 census indicates that by that time Claude and Ella Mae were living in a rented house, (316 Drury Street), in Kansas City and that Claude was a motorman for the transit system. Ruth was a tiny, frail, premature infant and wasn't expected to survive. It was said that she could fit in a sewing machine drawer, about 4" x 12," and that a teacup could fit on her head. On her second birthday, she was dressed up in a fussy white dress, sat upon a high stool, and had a photographic portrait done as a permanent memorial because it was feared that she wouldn't have another birthday. When Ruth was three and a half, a third girl, Helen Katherine, was born to Claude and Ella. At that time, big sister Opal was six.
In 1912, when Ruth was ten, her mother Ella Mae died of nephritis after a lingering illness of six years. Tuberculosis involving the right lung weakened her and contributed to her demise. The younger girls were sent to live with relatives. Ruth went to "Aunt Lizzie," (Julia Elizabeth Smith Hudson O'Dell), Claude's sister. Helen was sent to Gramma Hughes, the maternal grandmother. Growing up without a mother at this tender age in the Victorian era, Ruth had no one to talk to or ask questions. The normal changes of maturing came as a total shock and the young girl thought she was following her mother to the grave.
Claude remarried a young widow and mother of a two year old son in 1914. Clara Hoppas was just twenty-three, thirteen years younger than her new husband. Suddenly Clara had three step-daughters in addition to her son, Everett. Opal was just ten years younger and probably relieved to have most of the housekeeping chores lifted off her shoulders. The family had relocated to Omaha, Nebraska where Claude worked for Calender House as a "commercial trader," perhaps learning the printing business. Although loved and accepted as a brother by the big sisters, Everett was a moody problem child. This prompted Claude to adopt him officially, thinking it would help him feel more accepted as a part of the family. One Christmas, the girls tied a bundle of sticks together, placing it under the tree for the "naughty boy." He was devastated! The country was in the throws of World War I in 1916. Claude was intensely patriotic and insisted that Ruth drop the German language course that she was taking at High School. Since she couldn't matriculate without a language, Ruth never graduated. 1920 found her working as a file clerk for the Telephone Company.
On July 11, 1925, Ruth married Lester Albin Wiesner at the North Side Christian Church in Omaha, Nebraska. The pastor performing the ceremony was F. K. Hargrove and the witnesses were Clarence Wiesner, Lester's brother, and Herbert McCauley, who was to marry Ruth's younger sister Helen the following year. Lester was a dashing twenty-three year old auto mechanic from Omaha. On August 15, 1926, the young couple was blessed with a baby daughter. The home birth almost ended in disaster when the baby presented in a breech position and appeared stillborn. The Catholic doctor quickly baptized the infant Joyce Elizabeth, and then shocked her into gasping for breath by dipping her in hot and cold water. Ruth, who had always been frail, was warned not to have any more children, but having a strong maternal nature, she ignored the warning and exactly three years later on August 16, 1929, Janice Elaine was born at Lord Lister Hospital in Omaha. The depression hit the family when Lester lost his job as repair shop foreman for The Yellow Cab Company. This led to a nervous breakdown. In 1933, the family left everything in Omaha and moved to California to be near Ruth's relatives who were already settled there.
Ruth was a petite 5' 1" tall, and wore a sample sized shoe (4B). She had a "sweet tooth" and would frequently make fudge or other goody, much to the delight of the girls who got to lick the pan. No shopping trip downtown was complete without a trip to the candy counter or doughnut shop. Although never a gourmet cook, her specialties were old-fashioned favorites like oat-meal cookies and rice pudding. She was an avid gardener and the yard was always bursting with colorful blooms. During World War II, her "Victory Garden" filled the entire back half of the big back yard. Fresh vegetables were always plentiful and were her pride and joy. She was a very gentle lady and never smoked, drank, or drove a car. Ruth was a very loving mother and lived for her children. There was never a time when the family did not have financial problems but this was never evident to the girls. Ruth worked for a time as a bookkeeper for the telephone company. In 1938, she strained her heart and had to spend a year of complete bed rest. She was never strong and suffered from hypertension at a time when good blood pressure medication was not available. All this was compounded by a tyrannical and demanding husband. Planning for the weddings of Joyce and Janice the summer of 1949, although stressful, brought her great joy. She stitched both dresses with tender, loving care. The arrival of Tommy, her first grandchild, two years later was certainly one of the biggest events of her life. She adored Tommy as she did Debbie, Joyce's first child, who arrived eight months later. Tragically, she never really knew her other grandchildren as she suffered a severe stroke the summer of' 1953 when she was lust fifty-one years of age. When the doctor told the family that "it would have been better if she had died," Lester threw him out of the house. The next five years were torturous and proved that the doctor had been right. Ruth struggled to regain some speech and strength but each gain would be lost with another stroke. She died on December 5, 1958 when she was fifty-six years of age. Her remains are in the mausoleum of Inglewood Park Cemetery at Inglewood, California.
On July 11, 1925 when Ruth Meriam was 23, she married Lester Albin WIESNER, son of John E. WIESNER (1866-1941) & Anna TALACKO (1879-1975), in Omaha, Nebraska. Born on January 16, 1902 in Talmadge, Otoe County, Nebraska. Lester Albin died in Los Angeles, California on April 30, 1982; he was 80.
They had the following children:

i. Joyce Elizabeth (1926-)

ii. Janice Elane (1929-)
