Early Life

Coco Chanel was born in Saumer, France August 19 1883. She had grown up with only one mom and one sibling. Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel was born to an unmarried mother, Eugénie Jeanne Devolle – known as Jeanne – a laundrywoman, in the charity hospital run by the Sisters of Providence (a poorhouse) in Saumur, France.When Gabrielle was 11,[9][10] her mother died of bronchitis[9] at the age of 31.[11] Gabrielle's father sent his two sons out to work as farm laborers and sent his three daughters to the Corrèze, in central France, to the convent of Aubazine, whose religious order, the Congregation of the Sacred Heart of Mary, was "founded to care for the poor and rejected, including running homes for abandoned and orphaned girls".[12] It was a stark, frugal life, demanding strict discipline.
