Carmen grew up on a farm in central Wisconsin. Everything they needed was provided by the farm except sugar, but her father tended honeybees, so they always had honey. Her father also grew a small crop of large-leafed wrapping tobacco plants. Pictures of her “spearing” tobacco leaves contrast with the many other places she lived and visited in her travels. Her family is close and has many happy memories of her life. She made friends wherever she went.
