Shirley Temple Black (April 23, 1928 – February 10, 2014) was an American actress, singer, dancer, businesswoman and diplomat who was Hollywood’s number one box-office star from 1935 to 1938. As an adult, she was named United States ambassador to Ghana and to Czechoslovakia and also served as Chief of Protocol of the United States.
When she was about 10, Carol Smith attended a book review with her mother. The reviewer just stood up and told the story, so she thought that was what a book reviewer should do. Carol decided that speaking in first-person is the clearest way to present a life because pronouns can become so confusing.
“The hardest part of doing a review is finding the book that you can relate to and that I feel is worthy of the listeners’ time. Almost all the reviews I’ve done are about an individual who has overcome something,” Carol shared. This is the 49th book review she has given in 32 years.
Carol is originally from Texas, first coming to Oklahoma for graduate school. It was during this time she met and married Charles Headrick. She taught at OSU in the Dept. of Communication Sciences and Disorders for 25 years and has enjoyed a very active retirement.
For many seriously ill patients, hospice and palliative care offers a more dignified and comfortable alternative to spending your final months in the impersonal environment of a hospital. Palliative medicine helps patients manage pain while hospice provides special care to improve quality of life for both the patient and their family.
Seeking hospice and palliative care isn’t about giving up hope or hastening death, but rather a way to get the most appropriate care in the last phase of life. Join us for this informative program and learn more about options for this specialized form of care.
