This memoir tells the story of Alice, how she came to America as a bride, her life with her dedicated husband, Swen, and their commitment to living out their American dream. Alice was able to keep her heritage as a lifelong member of Bethlehem Swedish Lutheran Church in downtown Brooklyn and as a member of the Vasa Order of America, a Swedish American social society dedicated to fostering Swedish culture in America. Alice and Swen are now great-grandparents and have three great-grandchildren. Alice is the first member of her family to settle in America and lived to be almost eighty-five years old. This memoir is a centennial tribute to honor the one hundredth anniversary of her birth and pay homage to her life in America as a naturalized citizen of the United States of America. Palm family values of determination and love of hard work live on. This memoir is archived in the Metro NY Synod Sutter Memorial Archive kept at Wagner College.
