Great Aunt Isadora holds significance especially to my mother, Delores. When my Grandmother, Zelma May was giving birth in Salem, Oregon, Isadore was the midwife in attendance and offered her help and encouragement with her first child. All this occurred during the Great Depression in 1933 when times were tough and the funds weren't available to go to the hospital.
