Taking care of Mom

My mom spent years taking care of other people. She was a fiercely independent New England woman, and although she called my dad "Boss," she managed our dairy farm.

In the 1940s, she ran for school committee, the first woman in our small town of Millis, Massachusetts, to do so. She won, and served four terms. In the 1950s, a grandmother, she went back to Boston University to finish her education degree. After graduation, she taught math in a junior high school in Wellesley, Massachusetts, for many years. No student fooled around in her classes! But they learned to love math.
