Mom in 1957, Age 33

Margaret Ann Fitzpatrick Coughlin, circa 1957, Cleveland
Mom, happy, funny, fun. Irish as Patty's Pig. Born 1923 in Cleveland. Grew up near Lake Erie in the North Collinwood/Euclid Beach area. Some years in Willoughby. From 1951 to about 2002 in Euclid, where she and Dad raised 5 kids. Died in Willoughby late 2003.

Mom was a wonderful person, the basis of my own goodness, whatever it is. The source of my security and ability to love. No way to ever thank her adequately.
