My real name is Anita Bloom Muller Freidman Ornoff Ornoff. You see I have been married three times divorced once and remarried. I was born in Patterson, N. J. May 30, 1921. I have been wheelchair bound for 65 years. My youth was spent in Suffern, N. Y. where I was considered a “tom boy” excelling in swimming, tennis and walking. Graduated from Suffern High School at age 17 and became a salesgirl at a prominent Shoe Store in Passaic, N. J. Became the store manager at age 20 and then volunteered in the Woman’s Auxiliary Army Corp (WAAC). My memoir “Beyond Dancing” gives a detail account of my life from age 21 to 33.
In 1970 I graduated from Loyola College in Baltimore, Md. with a degree in Psychology and went on to become a mental health technician. It was during those working years that I met so many people who learned of my ordeal in the woman’s Auxiliary Army Corp (WAAC). They prevailed upon me to write my story for others to be inspired by my courage and ability to survive. Thus was born “Beyond Dancing” A Veteran’s Struggle – A Woman’s Triumph.
