was born on Rivard Street in Detroit
over her maternal grandfather's store,
DeRoven's Sugar and Feed. She grew up
on the northwest side and attended
Roosevelt, Durfee and Central High
When she was 16 years old, she met
Abe Ingber. These high school
sweethearts married in 1942. As
newlyweds, they moved to Ann Arbor
because Abe's father, Jacob, started a
business there in the hopes that his
children would receive a better
education near the university.
As a young bride, Mollie began to

book again, but I'm interested in other
