My mother, Mary F. Jupin (April 20, 1911-April 15, 1998) was one of ten children and the daughter of Russian immigrants. Highly intelligent, independent, articulate and well-read, she was formally educated only through the eighth grade. She loved horticulture, travel, good literature and the performing arts. She conducted herself with the greatest integrity in all her pursuits, and her examples of perseverance and courage are memorable. In honoring my mother and my daughter (Tara Ellen Clifford), I honor the best of humanity and the source of inspiration in my life. --A. Alexandra Jupin
