All families have stories. Some tragic. Some comic. Some more elaborate than others. Rebecca Flowers Schamess loves listening to her mother-in -law’s childhood stories. Stephanie Schamess now lives in Florence, MA. In the 1940s, she grew up in Hartford and New York City. For a while she lived with her extended family of grandparents, aunts, and uncles. At the StoryCorps booth in Springfield, Rebecca had Stephanie tell a tale or two.
