She shows up in 2 newspaper articles in town in her lifetime. 1st, when her brother was shot by his stepson and she “rushed to his hospital bed begging and pleading for his life”. Edward, her brother, the head of the bricklayer’s union, was on his 2nd wife. This poor woman’s son Stanley was 16 & tired of watching her get beat and he shot him. And then he died.
2nd story: she was robbed twice on the street bringing the earnings from the furniture shop where she worked home for safekeeping. Miraculously, her three rings nor her other jewelry weren’t stolen. It lent credence to a family legend and made me think she was probably as dodgy as the rest of her family
