This episode pays homage to a person I have never met named Mary Whitehead Jolley (1905-2007). I only know of this woman's life story by means of a cassette I found in a Salt Lake City thrift store in the late 1990s. Mary recorded herself telling her life story in 1988 and somehow the tape ended up for sale. I held on to this tape hoping I would someday be able to share her story with others. Take the time to reflect upon her life as well as the extreme world changes she must have known in her 102 years of life in this very special episode of Mangled Meditations.
