Patricia Flaherty, resident of Providence Mount St. Vincent for nine years, shares with Lindsay Troeppl how her life changed shortly after President Franklin Roosevelt delivered his famous Pearl Harbor speech, reciting the immortal words, “a day which will live in infamy.” Patricia recounts her career as a nurse, from training in Minnesota to post-war dancing in Denver, from delivering babies in Seattle, to caring for polio patients in Los Angeles.
