An American Woman's Experience

by Caroline Sewall Hanks
Publication Date: 17/10/2014
Caroline is the story of a remarkably engaging and vivacious woman! Her story will inspire you; make you laugh and cry, while lifting your spirit in appreciation for the strong, intelligent, and capable women that America produced in the 20th century. Born in 1924 on Long Island NY, CAROLINE as a child lived through the lean years of the depression, had loving Episcopalian parents, got a Physical Education degree from Sargent College, and met a Navy lieutenant in Boston and married him in Pearl Harbor near the end of World War II.

In her mid-sixties in the Chicago suburbs, she volunteered to run a free Career Resource Center for the unemployed. She eventually settled in Naples FL where she spent time designing and sewing costumes for the local theater, tending her garden, and reading the newspaper cover to cover (completing every crossword puzzle).

CAROLINE now has eight grandchildren and six beautiful great-grandchildren (with a seventh on the way). Everywhere she lived, she and her husband made long-lasting friends, hosted great parties, worked tirelessly, and were avidly involved in the community.
