Ending a friendship that spanned over fifty years, Anne Sullivan died in 1936, her hand held by her pupil and closest friend, Helen Keller. Listen to this snippet of those later years. Keller would go on to continue her work, aided by others willing to give their services to the women's suffragist and disability spokesperson, one of whom she would also outlive, before her own death in June of 1968, at the age of 87. Much of these later years were characterized almost solely by her fundraising efforts for the American Foundation for the Blind.

Uh, Annie had fallen into a coma as a result of coronary thrombosis, which is basically, ah, blood clot in her heart. So sad, sad. They were companions and they worked together for almost 50 years. Wow! So incredibly long lasting relationship. Yeah. Wow. Anyway, I highly recommend watching the miracle worker because it's all about their relationship in its Yeah, I remember. That's like, That is my first memory of Helen Color is that movie. It's so good. I haven't in a really long time, and I remember very little about it. But like the stuff I do remember is very vivid. Yeah, like I might have to watch it after this recording because they do it. It's been a long time. I love that movie Eso. After Anne's death, Polly previously mentioned sort of becomes Helen's new companion, somebody to travel with her and and help her out. So they together moved to Connecticut. They then keep traveling and raising money for the blind. Polly has a stroke in 1957 and never fully recovers, and she passes away in 1960. 0, that's so sad. Yeah, but a nurse that had been hired to care for her, uh, Winnie Corbally actually stayed onto the Helen's Companion and stay with her until the end of Helen's life. So because she had somebody, she needed to have somebody with her because getting around was difficult. Difficult on DPA, probably like keeping track of schedules and stuff like that. She needed somebody does.
