As most of you know, I'm usually kind of short when it comes to words, but I'll give it a try.
This is a picture of my grandmother (probably in her early 20's). She was born in Cernauti, Romania (now called Chernivtsi, Ukraine). She immigrated to Canada, with her parents, when she was five years old. She married at the age of 16, in Spring Valley, Saskatchewan and had 11 children. My mother is the second youngest of her children.
