Greta - a story with a sad ending

After living some years in Chicago, Greta and her family moved to Hot Springs, Virginia, where the second child Margaret was born in 1918. The photo features Margaret, Greta and Bob in 1921. Greta's husband Chris was the manager of the Homestead, a big hotel that still exists. 

They had, as far as we know, a really happy marriage until the day in 1924 when everything changed. Greta gave birth to the twins Chris and Else, but something went terribly wrong, no doctor could help her and Greta bled to death in a few hours. The reason for it, which was a stuck placenta, would not have been fatal today.
