Autobiography of RosaMae


 RosaMae-at106

RosaMae Woodward Sterling turned 106 on November 20, 2016. She was well into her ninety’s when she got serious about writing the story of her life, growing up and farming in eastern Washington in the early 1900s. One of her granddaughters took up the project recently, to see if she could get the book edited, designed and published in time for RosaMae’s 106th. As you can see, we made it!

You can get a copy on Amazon if you’re interested.

Update, February 8, 2017: Sadly, RosaMae passed away yesterday. Lorna, her granddaughter, told me “She got a great deal of enjoyment from (reading) her autobiography... in her final months.” Turns out, I also got a great deal of goodness out of the experience of helping to get her story in print. RosaMae’s story taught me many wonderful lessons, and I am a better person for it.  Rest in Peace, Grandma RosaMae.
