My Grandma, Emily Lyle Hrycko was born on a farm in Niles Michigan.
She lived in a nice house, one of the first to have electricity in her neighborhood! She lived with her mom, dad, and two sisters, Mary and Nancy.
Some of her favorite activities were fishing, and playing in the woods near her house. She would play with her friends or with her pets.
She also loved to ride her horse Tony. They had many horses on the farm and Emily loved them. She especially liked to ride with her father, who had helped her learn.
Emily started at the Lyle Country School when she was just four years old. The school was built and named after my great grandfather Lyle. It was a one room school with kids in kindergarten, all the way up to seventh grade.
