Returning to America

My mother was born in Santa Monica.  Her mother died after giving birth to her in 1916.  There was a pandemic flu which killed millions around the world. A few years later, when she was 3, her father died and she was sent to Japan to be raised by an aunt. She returned alone to America at the age of 21 and lived on Terminal Island.
