April 10, 1910 - October 4, 1957
One hundred years ago today, this woman was born.
This photo may have been taken around 1940, when she was about thirty years old, perhaps a year before she gave birth to a son. I cannot show you a photo of her as an old woman, because she never became an old woman. She died in 1957 at the age of 47.
I was a part of her life for the last 16 of those 47 years. I wish we could have known one another longer.
She was my mother, Ruth Elizabeth Silberman Brague.
