Since her mother and my great-grandmother are distant relatives, that makes her a relative in the same way that I'm related to a large segment of the people in NW Ohio.
Here are my Aunt Kay's comments: "Both Alene and her sister became nurses as did my cousin Jean. All three graduated from Holgate High School within a three-year period. Jean was my childhood idol, and I followed her career along with the other two while I was growing up. Though I did not want to be a nurse, I did want to go on to school when I graduated. They were inspirations for me. When my sister also became a nurse I was equally proud. By the time Alene became the first female admiral and received her honorary doctorate from BGSU, I had completed my B.S. and M.S. degrees at Bee Gee, had taught overseas for the U. S. Department of Defense, moved to California, stayed here, and married. I think Jean knew that she was a big influence on my life. Alene and her sister did not. My Grandma Eis and their mother were friends as well as distant relatives."
