After she graduated from grammar school, her father wanted her to wait to go to high school, until her bother could go with her. While she waited she taught grammar school.
Father wouldn't pay for all of her medical school
She had to get a loan from a friend.
She had tuberculosis and she had to leave Michigan
Tried to open a medical practice but because she was female people wouldn't accept her so had to work as a nurse.
Her tuberculosis came back and she came to the cold dry air to get better.
Dave is a horse.
One of the first victims of the Great Influenza epidemic which killed about 500,000 people in the US.
She spent only few weeks in Indiana then came back
Went back for her 50th reunion and honored for her contribution to rural medicine.
She had a stroke and had to move to a nursing home in Denver. She had no money at that time so none know how this was paid for but they think some of the Doctors she knew who respected her so much paid for her care.
