Noni Bottino

This is my grandma, Noni Bottino, as I remember her. So this  would have been taken around 1945 or so. She died in 1946.  This picture is from a book entitled "Peoples of Utah" by Helen Z. Papanikolas.  The story is that Noni Bottino hid a famous labor leader Mother Jones from a mob. They came to her house, Mother Jones was hiding in the bedroom.  The mob ask Noni if she was hiding Mother Jones in her living room, and her answer was no. Later she said she always told the truth.


Questa è la mia nonna, Noni Bottino, come mi ricordo di lei. Quindi questo sarebbe stata presa intorno al 1945 o giù di lì. Morì nel 1946. Questa immagine proviene da un libro intitolato "Popoli" di Utah da Helen Papanikolas Z.. La storia è che il Noni Bottino nascondeva un noto leader sindacale, Mother Jones da una folla inferocita. Sono venuti a casa sua, Mother Jones era nascosto nella camera da letto. La folla chiede Noni se lei si nascondeva Mother Jones nel suo salotto, e la sua risposta è stata no. Più tardi ha detto che sempre detto la verità.

  1. HI Pat,
    Can you tell me more about "Sandy" Dominic Bottino? I would love to know if he might be somewhere in my line.
