Tending the Sick

Aunt Rhoda (29) left England, all alone, in 1919, heading for America ..

During WWII, she had met a wounded soldier, who she had nursed back to health, & in so doing, had fallen in love ..

A few days after finally getting to California, via Ellis Island, Rhoda married her sweetheart ..

When she left England, she was a nurse and a masseur, and after further studying, & lots of hard work, she rose to the giddy heights of Chief of Physiotherapy at a Los Angelas Hospital ..

She had two children, a girl & a boy, and was known by the nickname of "Duchess" ..

She never saw England again ..
