Rosella Margaret’s Portrait
As child of “the Greatest Generation” Margaret lived through both World Wars and the Great Depression. She was a homemaker and as such was called upon to use what resources that were available responsibly which she did by re-‐using plastic bags until they had holes in them, making quilts and children’s clothing from those worn out by adults. She also took great care to look after to her family’s other needs for food both of a physical and spiritual nature.
