It All Happened Living Miracles

Joan’s childhood wasn’t an easy one. Somehow, she could never quite accept life as a normal person. Her fears, coldness, and rather shallow feelings toward love, perhaps, were attributed to the environment she was forced to grow up in.

The difficulties in her life began when she was only six years old. Her parents were separated a few years prior, and Joan had been living with her mother in Cincinnati, Ohio. Now, with the costs of living expenses mounting, Joan’s mother had to make a grueling judgment—she decided to send Joan to some friends of the family who lived in a small town in Indiana. Although her mother was saddened, this was the only option available at the time—and it could give Joan some much needed stability.

On a Saturday afternoon, twelve-year old Joan decided to walk in to town. She almost passed the Roxy Theatre before the marquee caught her eye proclaiming, The B. A. Mansfield Show-Live in Person. A school friend, who worked as an usher, noticed her and let her in the side door. Joan sat spellbound throughout the entire show. Everything gave her an air of excitement, from the dancing girls to the lights.

That afternoon changed Joan’s life as she was given a part in the play after winning a talent contest. Her good looks and innocence brought her attention from the theater people. Keeping her real age a secret, she went on the road with that play, and others. Eventually she would find herself on stage in New York City.

Still underage, Joan embarked on a life young girls dream about in the big city. She searched for romance, was pursued by wealthy suitors, and discovered who Joan really was.
