Fearless Females - Day 18

This is a blogging theme for the month of March which is Women's History Month. I'm a bit behind but do want to participate in the daily blogging posts. These 31 posts will be posted between my two blogs "My Trails Into the Past" and "Mam-ma's Southern Family."

March 18 — Shining star: Did you have a female ancestor who had a special talent? Artist, singer, actress, athlete, seamstress, or other? Describe.

My grandmother, Anna Marie Sullivan, attended Montana Normal College, and I have her college yearbook.  In the yearbook I found she was on the basketball team and the Glee Club.  What I remember most about my Nana, was that she was always singing.  She taught us to sing little ditties while washing dishes.  That always made washing dishes much more fun.

I don't think she ever sang formally, such as in a church choir or other chorus after college.  She was an elementary school teacher and I'm sure her classrooms were full of singing.
