FROM PDX RETRO ~

The modern American holiday of Mother’s Day was first celebrated in
1908, when
Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in Grafton,
West Virginia.  Her campaign to make "Mother’s Day" a recognized
holiday in the United States began in 1905, the year her beloved
mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis, died.
