Where Does My Family Fit?
By: Devin Brownstein
Ray Ezrol is my great grandmother. She was born on December 9, 1910. She grew up in Bensonhurst, New York. Her mother died when she was only 13 so Ray was in charge of the other five siblings. Her family was fairly poor so she had to skip college to help support her family. Women were not given the opportunity that they have now so it was very hard to find a job. She because a dancer and went by the name Ray Costa.
