A short essay
Sadie had been living in Peterborough, Ontario for some years after her family had moved from Portage-la-Prairie. She had been working at The Western Clock Company, a local electronic industry as well. Her work there consisted of an assembly, with many small parts requiring a good degree of skill. She was living with her parents, John, and Robin, helping with the monthly bills and supporting them. Her mother’s sister Wilhelmina had moved to Paterson, New Jersey, and had been working at the Curtiss-Wright Corp for ten years, and told Sadie that there were so many jobs available with her training and expertise.
These women may not have been wearing a uniform, but their efforts brought a major contribution to the Allied war machine. Sadie was very pleased with her work and assemble the expertise that she had acquired. She and her fellow workers were a much-needed supplement to ending the war.
After the war ended she meet a returning sailor who had served in the Pacific and within a year they had married and started their family. Both Sadie and her husband had served in one way or other in supporting America and the final ending of the war. Sadie was very proud of her handiwork, and her contribution that she and so many other women had made.
