Cloverdale Seniors write This story was written by Iola Ferrari at the Cloverdale Auto- biography Writing Workshop being held at the Cloverdale Se- nior Center on Thursdays from 1-3 pm. Iola was bern in Cloverdale. She attended Cloverdale schools until 1935, finishing in Berkeley and San Francisco, later return- ing to her home town area. She at one time owned 1200 acres in the Cloverdale Peak area, raising palomino horses and hereford cattle. She was also in the antique business. She and John Ferrari were married in 1987, travelled extensively and enjoyed their mountain home. She was saddened by his death in 1996, but still lives on the 50 acres she retained, enjoying the view and wild life. The class is taught by Scott Reid and is free. Presented by the Santa Rosa Junior College Seniors program, the class al- ways welcomes new participants. Come join us, enjoy the fun and meet new people. A Mother's Liberation in the 1920s By Iola Ferrari World War I had ended, the Volstead Act (Prohibition) was a failure and bootlegging was ram- pant. The mothers around Clo- verdale were concerned about their husbands and sons possi- bly being tempted and when a new organization came to town called %Vomen's Christian Tem- perance Union" many of them quickly joined. My mother was so busy at home, she felt she had no time for them. I can remember her most vividly either sewing, (mak- ing all our clothes), washing, ironing, cooking, gardening and doing all the wifely duties ex- pected of. women in the early twenties. She was also a good family nurse, and pulled us through everything from a stubbed toe to all the childhood diseases. I think we all had measles, chicken pox, and mumps (at different times) and she would give us all the comfort she could. I thought of my mother as a sweet, kindly, loving mother, completely satisfied with her role. She wore her dresses mod- estly ankle-length, had never had her waist-long chestnut brown hair cut, and always wore it in a bun. The only time I would see it down, was at night, when it was brushed one hundred times, usually with the help of one of us girls. Morn baked several loaves of bread every day, and I tried to be in the kitchen when it was com- ingout of the oven. There's noth- ing like the aroma of bread baking, unless its the taste of a freshly cut heel, smothered with rich, home-churned butter. Morn was a broad minded per- son, but I was surprised with her fierce pride in her baking abili- ty. One day I made a bad mis- take. I was sittingin the kitchen eating a fresh piece of her won- derful bread, and mentioned the fact that my friend's mother had treated me to her bread, and how good it was. My sweet little mother told me in no uncertain words that if I liked the bread of someone else better, so be it, but in her opin- ion that "other woman's" bread was very course. She added that I wasn't prohibited from chang- ing my taste, and that I needn't eat hers if I didn't care to. Be- lieve me, I learned one lesson: Either compliment the cook, or stay out of the kitchen! Mom loved to go to the movies at the Perry Theater, where three of her children worked. Every time there was a change of pictures she was ready. Since I was her last child, and very young, she usually took me with her. Sometimes I would be bored with the sobby, or romantic mov- ies, and would sleep through some of them When the cowboys and Indians or comedies came on though, I was wide awake. Mom didn't care what they were, she liked them all.  rlilcddt be t n]Snwh she worked in her flowers. I watched her plant a large bed of daffodils one time and when they bloomed, they were a sea of gold and people would stop to admire them. Through the years, whereever we moved, some bulbs went with her, and as a found in man children and Even as I look out now, dow I see some of them in my yard and am that day 70 ago, watch ed her in the soil.
