“Loretta Ellis Geddes, born in 1886, lived in Panama while her husband Thomas worked on building the canal. She raised seven children between Panama and New York City during the depression. She spent every day taking care of her husband, children, and grandchildren. What Loretta never did was eat dinner with her family, have refreshments at her daughter’s engagement tea, eat or drink anything at any of her children’s or grandchildren’s weddings.
