Louise 1952

I was born Louise Rogers; an only child; to Marion and William

in the mill town of Amsterdam, New York –  many decades ago.  I was named after both Grandmothers – Louise Cassone and Mary Rogers.  The full name, with a Catholic confirmation thrown in, is Louise Mary Elizabeth Rogers.  I always thought of myself as an ordinary person.  But I now realize that my ordinary life has has many extraordinary things happen.

I attended college in upstate New York and studied biology.  I relocated to Baltimore, MD and graduated with a BS from Johns Hopkins McCoy College in 1969.
