the clem conlin family
Clement “Clem” Conlin was the oldest son of George Conlin’s brother, Edward. (Clem was Nana’s cousin). Clem managed the Conlin’s chain of furniture stores with George and Ida (Ove Conlin). He was also the best man in Marvin and Agnes (Conlin) Gregoire’s wedding. The wedding photo (below) of Father McHale with Clem is one of my favorites!
Clem married Patricia Scofield in 1945, after being wounded in action during WWII. The couple settled down in Clem’s hometown of Williston, North Dakota and went on to have 10 beautiful children (nine of which are pictured in the card.)
