The following comes from an interview conducted on 11/26/99:

My mother was born in Richmond Hill NY on 8/2/1926. She says she was born at home, my father says it was at a hospital. She grew up in a house that was a storefront barbershop at 104-06 Jamaica Ave. She attended P.S. 90 through 9th Grade and then went to Richmond Hill H.S. She describes her youth as very nice, normal, not all that exciting. She went to Rockaway Beach for fun during the summers and remembers traveling to the Poconos (PA) and Ohio for vacations to visit relatives.

She married my father, Walter Miller, 6/25/1950, at Holy Child, Richmond Hill, NY.

She remembers her mother telling her that she began working in sweatshops at the age of nine as a seamstress. Her father was described as calm, easy going, and a workaholic. She doesn't remember meeting her grandparents on her father's side.

She remembers her father's brother, Joseph. He had a barber shop in Manhasset on Long Island. He was described as very nice and she believed he had a son with Muscular Dystrophy.

She says her father is buried in S. Charles Cemetery, Huntington, NY

She definitely remembers her grandparents on her mother's side, Grazia and Tommaso. She said they were very nice but didn't speak much English. She knew her mother's family (i.e. brothers and sisters, parents) very well and describes them as "great, very nice, and fun-loving".
