Mollie Chertoff Brodkey
Birth: Apr. 10, 1887
Minsk City District, Belarus
Death: 1969
Sioux City
Woodbury County
Iowa, USA

Mollie's mother died when Mollie was 4 months old. Grandparents who lived in Slutzk, Belarus raised her. When she was 7 years old, them came to the USA and settled in Omaha, Nebraska. The family thought it resembled their home town. Mollie graduated from Omaha Central High School as valedictorian of her class. Her valedictorian address was on Child Labor. She received a scholarship to Radcliffe College, but did not go since it would mean living with her father and step mother. Mollie was an avid reader and many storeis of evil stepmother's frightened her. Mollie never knew her mother and it deeply affected her childhood. She didn't even have a picture of her mother. She would look behind doors, hoping to find her there and lie on the floor and cry. In 1909 Mollie married John Brodkey, they had 4 children Elsie in 1911, Dell in 1915, Norman in 1917 and Elaine in 1921.
