She was my mother. She was well-known during her days at the University of Michigan for her article giving reasons why she hated men. She dated for a while Tom Harmon, the future father of movie actor, Mark Harmon. But my father Einar Almdale won her over.

She was adopted by her mother's aunt Gertude Phillips and her husband Frederick Phillips. Wayne County in Michigan does not have the staff to retrieve the adoption papers even though the adoption was not sealed, and my mother had given her permission.

Her ashes were divided among her three children who then interred their shares on their own properties in Wisconsin, California, and Canada.
