12. Mershon Niesner — Stages of Grief

Stories of COVID™

Mershon Niesner lives in Florida.  She aptly observed that, as the shelter in place recommendations set in and her social life closed, she experienced the stages of grief.  At the time of her interview, she had just adjusted to the constraints of the pandemic through the use of technology to stay in touch with friends and family.  Mershon also discusses how strange this defining moment in our lives is — that it started so gradually, unlike other moments like JFK being shot or 9/11.  Interviewed 2 April 2020. I first interviewed Mershon for my first book, Stories of Elders, in 2015. When I met her for that interview, she gave me a book of affirmations she had written. She continues to write and support others in her community.
