Clare Booth Luce (Mrs. Henry R. Luce)

"Love is a verb." --Clare Booth Luce
Good Mourning Widows.
Joy to you and me.
Today we welcome famous playwright, journalist, US Ambassador to Italy, and first woman elected to Congress from Connecticut widow of famous Time Inc. Co. founder and Editor-in-Chief, Henry R. Luce to our joy-ous club.
Clare Booth Luce "recognized that many women face obstacles in their chosen professions" and sought "to encourage women to enter, study, graduate, and teach."
Clare and Henry married in 1935.
Henry died in 1967. He was age 69.
Clare was born in 1903 and died in 1987.
Mourning Joy:
Q: What do you call a parachute jumper holding a book?
A: A down-to-earth story.
Mourning Quote:
"I've been through Hell already. What's a little trip to the viewing platform?" --Unknown
After we remember Him, fingerhug your pen. Write something. Go ahead. I dare you.
Have a joy-filled day Widows.
And remember, we're not alone.
