Red Cross Volunteer

My great-aunt Marjorie Gould joined Bayonne’s Red Cross Woman’s Motor Service Unit (see her photo, top right below)  in the spring of 1918 to help victims of the rampant flu epidemic.  After a busy summer with this and other activities,  she caught the flu, herself, and died within days on Oct. 22, just over a month after her 26th birthday. family-marjoriegould-bayonneredcross09142016
