Uncle Clyde and His Family


Uncle Clyde was the last born of the children of Kate and Cleveland Steppe. As a young man he lived for a time with his brother Gordon and wife Alice Mae in Lynchburg. He worked at a gasoline station. Alice remembers that he lost his job because her wore dirty overalls to work.


Clyde met his wife Irene as a serviceman stationed in Pratt, Kansas. She called him Steppe after the name on his uniform. They settled in Iuka Kansas where we went to visit them one summer.
