HERO ELSIE GERTRUDE ROSS TO BE FEATURED
One of Zorra's heroes, Nursing Sister Elsie Gertrude Ross will be the topic of discussion on Monday, November 10, 2014 when CBC Ontario Morning (93.5 FM)interviews HOZ committee chair Shirley McCall Hanlon at 6:40 a.m. With true care and compassion this young woman cared for many of our wounded soldiers who were returned home. She was the first woman to be given a full military funeral. She was held in such high esteem by her patients and colleagues that the procession following her casket lined the streets of Toronto with many wounded soldiers hobbling along behind. Tune in to hear this interesting story.
