Anna Eleanor Roosevelt came from a longtime
affluent New York family. She was a niece of Theodore Roosevelt,
26th President of the United States, and 6th cousin of
Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 32nd President of the United States,
who became her husband.

She was a shy child who experienced death at a
young age. Eleanor's Mother died when she was 8 and
she became an orphan, at the age of 10, with the
death of her Father.

Eleanor attended school in England when she was a teenager.

When life is too easy for us,
we must beware or we may not be
ready to meet the blows
which sooner or later
come to everyone,
rich or poor.
Eleanor Roosevelt
