Remembering Sophie “Vivian” Aderman Yocum

May 11, 2018

Today we celebrate the birth of Sophie “Vivian” Helene Anna Adermann Yocum. Vivian was born 11 May 1902 in Illinois to Ferdinand and Mary (Heiden) Adermann, the tenth of their twelve children.

She married Leonard Yocum on Christmas Eve, 1924 when she was 22 years old. Viv and Leonard had two children, Harley Eugene and Maxine Leigh. I owe access to the recipes below to Maxine’s son and my genealogy buddy, Kevin Hackett. These are his Grandma Yocum’s recipes.

Here are her recipes for Raisin Applesauce Cookies, Peanut Blossoms, and Chocolate Icebox Cake.

They look awfully good! Enjoy.

    My mother, Ellie Hamilton (Short) age 91 was Maxine Yocum’s girlhood friend in Detroit. My grandma, Alixe Short, made chocolate ice box cake. I wonder if it was your grandma’s s recipe! Do you have a photo of Maxine Yocum Hackett?
