Thank you to Cathleen Burns, who submitted this post about her mother, Mary Joye Burns (nee Geary), pictured above. Cathleen says
she was a Medical Technologist at Emory University in 1950. She always wanted to be a doctor but her stepmother told her “Joye, women can’t be doctors!”, so she became a medical technologist instead. She married my dad, who was able to become a doctor, and they were married 62 years until my father passed away this July.
