Grandmother’s Secrets

Presenter: Christine Cochran

Her photo has always had its place in a silver frame on the black grand piano in our home. She wears an organza silk blouse embroidered with roses and a mysterious winged creature. A cameo is pinned where the drape of the collar meets the button-down front.  She is elegant and beautiful as she looks down demurely towards left her hand, perhaps contemplating her wedding ring? Join me as we traverse the scant and conflicting data available on her life and the information, we can glean from it.
