This is the 100th anniversary of my Mother's birth.

I didn't write a lot about her, but here is the eulogy I wrote for her. I don’t think I shared it at the time.

She died in 2007. She left her body to medical research, and didn’t give us any funerary directions. The next year my sister and I gathered with my Mother’s three sisters and our cousins for a remembrance. I opened and closed it with songs from records that I knew she liked because she bought them twice; first on vinyl, then CD. 

Here she is in 1944, with her sisters (by age) left to right: Mom (Elizabeth,) Margaret (Peggy,) Virginia, Isabel.
