Journey down memory lane as Elly shares 70 years of life with her family and friends. 
Travel with her through every significant stage of her life from early childhood memories, 
growing up in an ethnic neighborhood, her first kiss, her marriage, the birth of her son, 
the trials and tribulations of motherhood while balancing a challenging career at Kodak, 
learning how to face and embrace retirement, the delight of a granddaughter, the passing 
of friends and family members, and the beginning of new "life" at age 70. You become part 
of her life as you share in her intimate moments of happiness and sadness, joy and pain. 
Not only is this a recollection of the life of a baby boomer in Rochester, New York, 
but it is both a touching and amusing series of life stories that we all can relate to, 
no matter where we grew up, or no matter where our life has taken us. Elly's journey 
will lead you to recall your own life's metamorphosis. You may even laugh or cry at some 
of the experiences in the most typical, daily slices of life that we have all encountered. 
What started out as a written record of her most notable life moments to leave for her 
granddaughter has turned into a remarkable and insightful biographical story that may make 
you want to write one yourself. Life is a constant and never-ending passage of events in 
time, treasured for generations. Telling one's personal stories makes one live forever. 
Searching for Serenity in My Crazy Life. Fun, fascinating, and memory provoking. Growing 
up doesn't mean growing old. Growing up is a life story.
