    Biography 06 Sep 2008 
    From an e-mail from Diane Milber dated 6 Sep 2008:

    They must have had to work hard to offset their neighborhood environment. While in Glasgow, my grandmother went to a Catholic school, although Jewish. She must have gotten a better than average education there. I remember hearing how strict my great grandmother, Rebecca, was about the way they dressed. They had to be impeccably dressed or they didn't get to go out with her on local jaunts!

    Rebecca was a strong willed lady. I never got to meet her as she died shortly before I was born. But she definitely had a sense of humor. Once she went to the doctor and in those days, whatever ailed you they recommended pulling out your teeth as the remedy. So true to form, he told her that her teeth needed to come out. She said, "Really?" He confirmed. She then proceeded to pull out her false teeth and put them on the table!

    I am told that I took after her not only in appearance, but because we both liked to do needlework. My middle name, Rochelle, was actually inspired by her name, but my Mom thought at the time that Rebecca was too old fashioned, so the name was modified.
