Wordless Wednesday - Irene Brassfield

This is a photo of Irene Shirley Brassfield (Terzo-Ireland) (1924-2010). It is most likely a college graduation photo, I'm guessing she was around age 20, so about 1944. She graduated from Methodist Hospital School of Nursing in Sioux City, Iowa (now St. Luke's College). According to her obituary, she went on to receive a BS from Western Connecticut State College and a Masters of Education degree from Columbia University, specializing in mental health and psychiatric nursing.

She was the third child of Floyd Gipson Brassfield (1898-1961) and Thelma Sarah (Hunt) (1898-1976).
