Ronni's Godfathers Lew and Henry
Can't Remember? Forget About It

Great Aunt Edith



[1911] Let's take a break from the rigid sequence of the timeline to look at a magnificent woman: my Great Aunt Edith. I wanted to grow up to be just like her and I’m still working on it. My father’s aunt (who raised Dad from age 10), was born in 1895. She left her Chicago home when she was 15 to join a touring dance company. It was a very suspect and risqué thing for a girl to do in those days.

An Isadora Duncan in your own family. How exciting that must have been for you to have such a woman in your life, Ronni! Did having her as a "grandmother" constitute permission, in your young mind, to become such an independent woman? Wonderful.

Don't we all want to be remembered as one of the "strong" women in our families? I want to revel in eccentricity! Your aunt must have been one grand dame!

She's "Hot"!
