Evelyn Wilcox Balch in life and death
She lived through two world wars and lived to experience the many joys of the 1980s such as music, video games, and art. It was a pleasurable experience learning about my Great-Grandma that helped me understand my grandmother more, without this project I would never know that my grandmas actual name was Elizabeth.
