Missing Lucile: Memories of a Grandmother I Never Knew

A heiress of the Kroger fortune

They say money can't buy you happiness and Lucile Kroger-Berne, grandmother of author Suzanne Berne might have agreed!

In 1932, Lucile, the daughter of Bernard Kroger (whose enterprise is worth $76 billion today) died, leaving her six-year-old son motherless and extremely melancholy.

Nearly 80-years later author Suzanne Berne went on a quest to understand the life of her deceased grandmother in an effort to heal the pain of her ailing father. The result brought her new book: Missing Lucile: Memories of a Grandmother I Never Knew.
