Description:
This is a family portrait of the Eedy family around the 1950s. Dorothy and John Wilson Eedy are on the right and beside them are their children.

John Wilson Eedy was born and attended school in St. Marys. After the death of his father, Lorne A. Eedy, he took over the position of publisher/editor for the Journal Argus. He also served as an officer during the Second World War with the Oxford Rifles. During his service he was stationed in Prince George, B.C where he met and married Dorothy May Strom in 1943. They moved to St. Marys several years later

Dorothy May Strom Eedy was very involved in the community as a volunteer and as a Sunday School teacher. She sat on numerous boards including the St. Marys Public School Board, St. Marys United Church, St. Marys Community Living, UCW, Inner Wheel, IODE and the St. Marys Library among many others. She also had a lifestyle and cooking column featured weekly in the Journal-Argus called "Eat at Our House." The articles included a range of topics from home recipes to commentary on daily life and local news. She wrote the column for over 60 years.

Together, Dorothy and John Wilson Eedy had five children: John Wilson Eedy Senior, Robin S. Eedy, R. Lorne Eedy, Lars E. Eedy and Linda M. Eedy. One of their children is missing from this photo, but it is unclear which.
