Dorothy Schaaf Bayer  My mom was fearless. She was born a twin in 1921. She weighed just over 1 lb. and she survived. She served as a WAAC in WWII. She taxied and gassed airplanes. She was stubborn and strong willed and she feared nothing but Alzheimer's. Her mother suffered from this disease. She was so afraid she would too.
