Yolanda and Mary Anne Zepeda

Yolanda and Mary Anne Zepeda and Lena García-Spath

Mary and Yolanda are mother and daughter, and were joined by their great aunt during this interview. It has been the longest and most touching interviews, so far. All three women grew up in Texas and are of Mexican heritage, although Lena’s mother was from Germany.  Yolanda and Lena left Texas many years ago and have lived in several places, but have now made Ohio their home. The song included in this interview is from Yolanda’s father, Ernest Zepeda. He wrote this song when he first met Mary Anne.
