6. It killed both of my maternal grandmother's parents

They lived on a farm in rural, middle of nowhere, Tennessee. Grandma’s mother died in 1918 and her father in 1919. She and her sister cared for their parents after they became ill, as well as taking care of the farm. Grandma was 15 and her sister 17. Even so, they both went on to graduate from college, one a teacher (English and Latin) the other a nurse.

A lot of remarkable and strong women in my family history, including my own mother.
