Photo of a war memorial at the southeast corner of Magnolia and Sunnyside; currently on eBay here: War Memorial
From the original caption: Some may forget the sacrifices of Chicago's war dead, but not Madora Ashley. Again this year her pet project--a tiny war memorial plot at Sunnyside and Magnolia--reflects the tender care of one who remembers.
The flag pole on the plot has been freshly painted and blooming flowers brighten the area, thanks to Miss Ashley, a beautician of 4441 Magnolia.
In part, the plot's well-tended appearance resulted from help last year by friends and neighbors. At that time, Miss Ashley was in a hospital, ill and worried that the memorial would be neglected.
Readers of the Sun Times Briefs--371 of them--assured her with cards and letters that this would not happen. Neighbors tended the plot until she recovered. Then Miss Ashley again took over as the memorial's loving caretakers.
