In Reply to: Bob Fosse a relative? by William Simonson of 13

Wow! That's a real revelation - and it rings very true!

Lena Waitzman was one of the older children, and had married and moved away - I heard "somewhere north, maybe Cleveland." My mom (Ruth) never remembered her, as she was long gone.

The original Waitzman family portrait photo shows Dad and Mom and all the children standing together, except for Lena - who, instead was represented by a medallion facial portait - pasted in the second row, as if she were standing there in the flesh.

Lena and her husband were said to be in the theatre, I had always heard the name was FOOS, or FOOSE, and never could get more on that - I thought it was a dead-end. Thanks.

SIMONSON DOUBLE CONECTION
By the way, Joe Simonson married my Aunth Joan (say Jo-ann) Waitzman - my mother's sister - he had to receive special permission from the Catholic church to marry someone that closely related to him.

This is an interesting family tree, isn't it?

regards
Gary Geisel
