Georgann Rea nee McAdams aka Loretta May Gronau

Our mother, born Loretta May Gronau in Polk County, Iowa…

…renamed Georgann McAdams after her adoption by a wealthy banker and his wife in order to “save their unhappy marriage”.  Georgann, Loretta, Gronau, McAdams, Lawless, Rea, it’s no wonder she never knew who she was.  Loretta May Gronau does make me think of Lula May Barnes aka Holly Golightly.
