Their first store was acquired in 1901 located at Bowen and Cottage Grove, Chicago. Her recipe for living, first enunciated by her Master who said, "he that loseth bis life shall find it," has been carried out for 84 years when she is still active going about giving lectures and donating money earned thereby to the Red Cross. She become a gardener and horticulturist after age 50 and adept at photography at past 60. The book was dramatic, both sad and humorous, and of local interest was the fact that Charles Walgreen, husband of the author, was born north of Galesburg, near Rio.
