Roma was the only child of Ivy and John Cresswell (Regina) and after John's death adopted by Ivy's second husband John Cram, and a child of the depression. Roma met her husband to be at a Christmas party in 1934. When war was about to be declared in late August of 1939, Roma proposed to Westy, and lent him enough money to buy a ring, a licence, and she became Regina's First War Bride, The Morning Leader September 5, 1939. Westy shipped off to Victoria days later as he was a trained member of the R.C.N.V.R. and Roma followed him to the coast the following spring, arriving in time to see her new husband transferred to the East coast and convoy duty. They remained separated by the whole country for the better part of the war years. Settled again in Regina, and purchased West's Studio shortly after from Westy's brother Wilf. Roma and Westy worked the photo business until they retired in 1972. They enjoyed the business, the many customer/friends and each other during their life of 24/7 together. After retirement they continued to enjoy the cottage at Buena Vista, and friends and neighbours in River Heights. After her husband's passing, Roma moved to a condo in south Regina, made new friends, retained old ones, and baked her own bread until three weeks ago. An active long life, a loving family, dear old and new friends, what more can a person ask? Thanks God. Many thanks to the staff of the Pasqua (Grey Nuns) hospital ward 4B and ICU, whose care and compassion had made a difficult journey more bearable for Roma and family.
