Maria Dolores DiMinni Breeskin (1914-2003) married Barnee Breeskin (1910-1989) in 1945.
Barnee Breeskin was the band leader for the Washington Redskins, one of only three National Football League teams to have a marching band, from 1938 to 1952. In 1938, Breeskin wrote the music to “Hail to the Redskins,” the team’s fight song. Former actress Corinne Griffith, who was owner George Preston Marshall’s wife, wrote the lyrics. Barnee Breeskin later became a public relations executive and strongly supported George H. W. Bush’s 1980 campaign for the Presidency.
