Lillian Cecile Ziock Palmer

The background music on this page, The Beer Barrel Polka, is dedicated to my aunt Lillian Ziock Palmer.  She loved the polka & even into her 70's she could still out dance everyone on the dance floor!

This is the house in Imperial, Jefferson County, Missouri that my aunt Lillian Ziock Palmer lived in for many years on Palmer Lane on west side of Hwy. 67.  I always loved this big, beautiful house & wish I could have visited more often.  I remember at Christmas time there was always a beautiful Christmas tree in the alcove off of the living room.
