Clara Herrman - 1000 Years of Memories by I. David Cohen

Clara Herrman

Clara survived the flu epidemic of 1918 when some 675,000 Americans died during the pandemic. During the depression of the 1930s the government issued coupons for items such as coffee, Crisco, flour and other basics of life including coupons for silk hosiery. At age 90 she was shocked when her dear friend Lori Brown asked her to accompany her on a single – engine Cessna airplane ride over Newark, Ohio. She was excited and loved it.
