We were both so busy over Memorial Day weekend at different cemeteries and with our families that we did not have time to finish our research for the planned episode this week. However, we have a very special return guest with a fascinating story joining us next week and we will be able to return to our regularly scheduled program! We humbly apologize and we thank you for sticking with us on all of our Ordinary Extraordinary Cemetery journeys. Until we meet again!

Episode 127 - A Tale of Two Women: Molly Brown and Louise Sneed Hill

Episode 127 - A Tale of Two Women: Molly Brown and Louise Sneed Hill

In this episode, Jennie and Dianne celebrate Women's History Month as they explore the lives and legacies of two women who helped to tame the Wild West.  First we'll meet Margaret Tobin Brown, more famously known today as Molly Brown. She was a socialite and philanthropist known for her courage and tenacity, particularly during the sinking of the Titanic. Her story is one of resilience and determination in the face of adversity. We follow Margaret's story with that of her social arch nemesis, the Queen of Denver Society, Louise Bethel Sneed Hill. Louise took Denver's "social wasteland" and created her own high-class hierarchy that included the who's who of Denver's wealthiest and most influential people at the turn of the 20th century. Join us as we explore the impact of these two Ordinary Extraordinary women on history and society. Don't miss this special Women's History Month episode of our podcast!
