cause of death: "blue baby - foramen ovale - congenital"
Born at home, 3699 E 104th St, Cleveland.
There was no surgery available at that time to fix foramen ovale. It is a common problem which is now fixable by an easy surgery. In the fetal heart, the foramen ovale opening allows blood to enter the left atrium from the right atrium. In most individuals, the foramen ovale closes at birth.
Most people with patent foramen ovale donít need treatment and donít know they have the condition. Babies with such conditions are blue because some oxygen-poor blood isnít sent to the lungs to take on oxygen. And when an infant with patent foramen ovale has cyanosis, he or she usually has other heart defects.
Headstone placed by niece, Barbara Andrews. My grandmother Pauline mourned Mary Jane and Clarence her entire life. She would go on a regular basis to clean and visit family graves in that cemetery, but my father says she never went to the babies' graves. We don't know if that's because she couldn't find them without headstones or because it was too hard. The babies died during the Great Depression, so I assume Pauline and Michael just didn't have the money to buy stones, and later, when she did, it was too hard for her.
