My grandmother was born in 1935 in Ireland. When she was around 15, she moved to England to work. She met my grandfather and got married. After several pregnancy complications, my mom was born. They moved to New York in the late 50's to make a better life for themselves.
They then relocated to Detroit to work in the car industry. We have been in Michigan ever since.
My grandmother died way before her time. She lived a hard life. Everyone misses her greatly!
