We are so sad to announce the passing of our favorite Southern Belle, writer, journalist, guest speaker, poet,devoted wife and mother of 8.
She was one of the original Southern Beauties sent to the secret city of Oak Ridge to help win WWII on a mission to save the country and bring back her brother Jimmy. She fell in love with a refined educated engineer Clifford Black and that was the real ” secret” as she worked on a top secret project for the government. Read her story and others in Denise Kiernan’s best seller “The Girls of Atomic City”, Simon and Shuster.
Colleen Rowan Black July 21, 1925- mar 19, 2015
