Ann Harlan Myers, daughter of James and Mildred (Berogan) Myers, was born November 7, 1944 in Webster City. She graduated from Webster City High School and Drake University.

She also rode several RAGBRAI and GRABAAWR rides and cycled with the Des Moines and Marshalltown bike clubs. Ann was an avid reader and used the libraries extensively. She was active at Lutheran Church of Hope. Ann was quick to make new friends with people she met throughout her life and loved to spend time with her friends and family, especially her grandchildren and great grandchild.

As cousins growing up we were together frequently as our parents had frequent family dinners, picnics, and the occasional gathering for grief. This picture was taken after my Uncle Oliver had passed away - one of the rare occasions all of the cousins were together. Right after this picture was taken, Ann turned to me and asked if I still had "Right Baby"?
So, what does all that have to do with a doll called "Right Baby"?
When I was young, I had 2 dolls and I had called one "Right Baby" and the other one had come to be called "Wrong Baby". Ann, one of my cousins, remembered those dolls, as they had once been hers (something she just told me) and she asked me, "Bobby, why did you call one of those dolls "Right Baby" and the other one "Wrong Baby"?
"Did you love one more than the other?"
It seems she had thought about this every once in a while over the last 40 years. Ann and her sister Judy Lee frequently took care of me when I was little. Their Mother, Aunt Mildred, kept me supplied in comic books. I was a sickly kid and spent a good portion of the 4th grade in and out of the hospital. Aunt Mildred would visit me frequently, especially when my mother couldn't get into town. And every time she came, she came loaded with comic books and I guess at some point in time the "Babies" came into my possession. Both babies did well, and I loved them both the same.
"No, Ann, that wasn't it at all. I was sick one day and threw up on one of the dolls and she started to smell so I called her "Wrong Baby". It didn't matter how much my mother cleaned the doll she still carried that stigma [and smell] of puke with her. I ostracized her and made her sleep at the foot of the bed and when all of the other dolls and stuffed animals were having a party she was never invited. She had to sleep at the foot of the bed."
"Oh..." Ann seemed a bit disappointed but was glad the mystery had been solved for her.
I still have "Right Baby", "Wrong Baby" has long since passed.
"Right Baby" is the ugliest doll I have ever seen and she currently resides in a box with her head wrapped in plastic (her head started to melt several years ago). I won't be taking her picture as I want to remember her as she was before her head started to melt.
