The Boimilla Family of Dean Road

On July 11th, Ashland had three very special visitors from California. John, Marie and Helen Boimilla made the trip east to kindle their childhood memories, because they were born here, and consider Ashland their hometown. When they were 10, 8, and 6, respectively, their lives were altered in a significant way because their father Frank, a machinist, lost his job at the age of 46, when the firm he was working for went out of business after 27 years. It was 1961, and the job market had an unemployment rate of 6.7%.
