Oral History: Interview with Calvin & Reba Wills
Mammaw, Pappaw, and Me.
Photograph taken December 2010 at their
60th wedding anniversary.
Wills is my grandfather (my father’s father) and Reba Miller Wills is my
grandmother (my father’s mother). They currently live in Carlisle (Nicholas
County), Kentucky but Pappaw is originally from Paris (Bourbon County),
Kentucky. Both are 82 years old. They will be married 63 years in December. Mammaw and Pappaw, as I call them, are two of the most special
people in the entire world to me. They have been there for me throughout my
entire life and have taught me so much during our time together. In the background of this interview, you may notice a bubbling sound -- my mammaw was making homemade apple butter and that sound is it boiling.
