About the Book
This book is written for our family, as a memorial to our grandmother Mary Elizabeth Velleca. She was born Mary Bradley in 1916 in Strasburg, Ohio, and passed away in 1994 in Silver Lake, Ohio.
This book includes photos and a biography, and features a scanned copy of Mary's hand-written cookbook, given as a gift in 1964 to her new daughter-in-law.
Her original cookbook can be viewed as a Users Manual for Mary's son Packey (our father), as he left her home to start his own; but it's also a look into Mary's life, filled with children, grandchildren and the food they loved.
