In 1946, a family named Ecker was living across the street from Nana and her husband. This first Ecker family consisted of Alice Ecker-née Alice Kelly-her husband Irving, and their only son, Irving Jr., recently returned from four years service as a pilot in World War II. It doesn’t require much imagination to figure out that Irving Jr. met the pretty widow living across the street with her parents and her son. By late 1947, Irving Jr. and Evalyn were married and had moved to another part of Los Angeles.

Jennifer Ecker died seven weeks shy of her fifteenth birthday, on the first Sunday in March of 1969. She waited until her grandmother left for services at the Congregational Church before loading a vintage revolver with bullets ordered from a mail-order catalogue, and while her mother showered in a bathroom barely ten feet away, shot herself in the head. There was no letter of explanation.
