Cor Lange is ook mijn tante, ook staan er nog 2 nichten van mijn moeder op de foto, Anna en Miet Verlinden en de echtgenote van een neef van mijn moeder, Christina Nooijen, zij huwde in 1950 Piet Peeters uit Sint Anthonis. (niet 100% zeker of we het hier over dezelfde Christina hebben). Piet Peeters was naar aanleiding van het bezoek van zijn oom Driek Wientjes uit Amerika aan de familie (zie "even terug" sint anthonis) met een neef ook naar Amerika ge-emigreerd. Christina vertrok ook naar Amerika en huwde daar met Piet.Door een obituari die op internet geplaatst is kun je een beetje van haar levensloop zien.
