Sanders 2 bw

Virginia Sanders. Born 1922, Pennsylvania. Sanders’s mother and grandparents came to the U.S. as Russian refugees. Her grandparents opened a dry goods store, which supported the family when the Great Depression closed Sander’s father’s automobile accessory store. During WWII, Sanders taught mathematics in night school, when people were trying to gain more education to be more useful in the war. In 1977, she married her second husband, moved to Longboat Key, and proceeded to volunteer for Mote Marine Laboratory for more than 30 years. “Listen to other people first. Learn to listen, and give people a chance to say where they are coming from and pitch in to help.”
