Excerpt

This book is the story of an American woman, whose generous years in terms of time were generously spent in terms of service. Singularly endowed with personal gifts of wit, charm, and gaiety, with a rare understanding and love of people, with keen intelligence and a quick sense of values, she lived her life with an intense and eager awareness of what life may mean when it is regarded as a loan and not as a mere possession. The pages which follow attempt to portray her as she quite simply was: the center and the security of a large family, brought up under circumstances requiring peculiar tact, humor, sanity, and wisdom; the patron of American culture in many forms; the constant friend of countless men and women; the disciple and the apostle of all things just and true, honest, lovely, and of good report.
