Theresa Hoopingarner and Linda Haley

Theresa Hoopingarner and Linda Haley

Theresa Hoopingarner was a child in 1930's Memphis when her father's ill health forced him to move his family from the area. His Italian ancestry drew him back to the family home in Bassignana, a rural village in northwest Italy. Theresa spoke with her daughter Linda about her family's relocation to Italy just prior to World War II, and how day to day life on the small farm taught her the value of hard work and a greater appreciation of life in the U.S.
