Martha Hennessy shares glimpses of her grandmother Dorothy Day’s life by Jeff Kurowski,The Compass, January 30, 2020

Martha Hennessy’s first memory of her grandmother, Dorothy Day, goes back to when she was 3 years old at the family home in Vermont. Day was visiting from New York City.

“She was a great storyteller. I was sitting on her lap,” said Hennessy, the seventh of Day’s nine grandchildren. “Everyone was excited to see her. She was telling a story. I don’t remember anything she was speaking about, but I had my head on her heart.”
