She will have grown up and been a young woman while so many things went on here in the US. I would ask what the Stock Market crash and subsequent Great Depression meant to her family--some families it didn't affect so much. What it was like during WW2 and did she have any family members that served. What was her opinion about the Civil Rights Movement--try not to judge. How did she feel when her President was assassinated (Kennedy), and did the VietNam War feel any different to her than WW2. What does she think is the most amazing thing technology-wise to have been accomplished in her lifetime? And when was she the happiest? Wow... what an amazing resource you have! Have fun, and God bless your great grandma!
thanks for some good ideas. Altho, we do live in Canada, but some things can certainly be adjusted.
I do know she wont talk about the war. her husband went off to the war and came back a changed man, and not in a good way which led to her divorcing him and her having to put her children (my grandma) in foster care.
