Sara Rice born in Battle Creek, Michigan. I have 4 older brothers. My parents were Wilfred E. Rice . b 1927 Battle Creek and Helene Smith b. 12 Aug 1927 Chicago, IL. I lived in Bay City, Michigan from 1964-1972 and then Battle Creek where I graduated from St. Philip and then Western Michigan University.
I taught secondary Spanish and History in Kankakee, IL., Homer, MI and Bellevue, MI. Later I discovered my ancestors lived in all three places! I went on to receive a MA degree in History and presented research on a national level about my Italian family.
