The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul.

Happy Birthday Jane Wyman
- From WIkipedia
Wyman was born Sarah Jane Mayfield in St. Joseph, Missouri. Although her birth date has been widely reported for many years as January 4, 1914, research by biographers and genealogists indicates that she was born on January 5, 1917. The most likely reason for the 1914 date is that she added to her age when beginning her career as a minor in order to work legally.
Birthplace in St. Joseph Her parents were Manning Jefferies Mayfield, a meal-company laborer, and (Gladys) Hope Christian, a doctor's stenographer and office assistant. In October 1921, her mother filed for divorce, and her father died unexpectedly the following year at age 27. After her father's death, her mother moved to Cleveland, Ohio, leaving her to be raised by foster parents, Emma and Richard D. Fulks, the chief of detectives of Saint Joseph, and she took their surname unofficially, including in her school records and, apparently, her first marriage certificate.
Her unsettled family life resulted in few pleasurable memories. Wyman later recalled:
“ I was raised with such strict discipline that it was years before I could reason myself out of the bitterness I brought from my childhood. ”
Jane Wyman died at the age of 90 at her Rancho Mirage home on Monday, September 10, 2007, having long suffered from arthritis and diabetes. Wyman's son, Michael Reagan, released a statement saying:
“ I have lost a loving mother, my children Cameron and Ashley have lost a loving grandmother, my wife Colleen has lost a loving friend she called Mom and Hollywood has lost the classiest lady to ever grace the silver screen. ”
It was reported that Wyman died in her sleep of natural causes. Since she was a member of the Dominican order of the Catholic Church, she was buried in a nun's habit. She was interred at Forest Lawn Mortuary and Memorial Park in Cathedral City, California
I loved her in Pollyanna - do any of you remember that?
My choice from about was squiggles.
