The person that I have chosen to interview is my grandmother Mary Murphy Mary is my fathers mother She is 80 years old and she lives here in Stillwater Oklahoma It was not hard to conduct a time and place for this interview because she lives so close Interviewing her was very exciting because she is an enthusiastic individual who loves to talk about her life and her past experiencesI began the interview by asking Mary some simple background questions These consisted of Where were you born Where did you grow up And what was your family like as a child From her response I learned that Mary was born and raised in Altus Oklahoma where she grew up with her mother father and an older brother Before I was able to ask about her childhood in greater detail she happily talked about everything that flooded back to her memory Mary grew up in the 1930-40s during the Great Depression Marys father was a doctor so the family was secure financially they could still afford shelter food and clothing unlike many other families in the 1930s Mary was raised in a family that was stable in their finances and their interdependent relationships This explains much about the way she raised her own children After obtaining more insight about Marys childhood life I started asking more detailed questions pertaining to her marriages and her life as a parent I am able to easily incorporate two transitions that we have learned in class that have impacted Marys life the transition to marriage and the transition to parenthood I will begin with the transition to marriage Mary has been married twice She married for the first time when she was 22 to a man named Tom She and Tom had two daughters my aunts Holly and Lele Fortunately at age 27 Tom and Mary got a much-needed divorce The first marriage was a very rocky transition for many
