Angelia Farinas Jiskoot was my Mother-In-Law for many, many years, until her passing. I married her oldest child, Bjorn Jiskoot, Sr. We have 2 children and 2 grandchildren, with a 3rd on the way. She would visit us often, as we would travel to NY to visit her as often as possible. Her heart was as big as they come. She was beautiful inside and out. I remember one time she sent us gift to FL from NY. They were ski jackets. I couldn't help but laugh, since it doesn't really snow here, much less do we have any ski resorts. Her heart was in the right place though. We spoke so often on the phone. My son (her first grandchild) adored his Granny Angelita. I also remember one time during a visit to our house, she wanted to try and ride a bike. Didn't go so well. She went about 10 feet before falling over with it. We all laughed so much. No matter when we lived (military life) she always made time for us and the rest of her family with visits, letters, cards and phone calls. I have one of the most beautiful pictures of her when she was at her prime singing opera ( I would loved to have known her then). I must have my son help me post it on here. My son has a beautiful voice also, which I know he get from his Granny Angelita.

Refresh this page to see various historical events that occurred during Angelita's lifetime

In 1931, in the year that Angelita Jiskoot was born, on May 1st, the Empire State Building opened in New York City. At 1,454 feet (including the roof and antenna), it was the tallest building in the world until the World Trade Center's North Tower was built in 1970. (It is now the 34th tallest.) Opening at the beginning of the Great Depression, most of the offices in the Empire State Building remained unoccupied for years and the observation deck was an equal source of revenue and kept the building profitable.

In 1957, Angelita was 26 years old when on September 24th, the "Little Rock Nine" (nine African-American students) entered Little Rock High School. Arkansas Gov. Orval Faubus had previously prevented the students from entering the school at the beginning of the term with the Arkansas National Guard - they blocked the door. President Eisenhower ordered federal troops - the 101st Airborne Division of the United States Army - to guard the students and allow them entry.

In 1968, when she was 37 years old, on January 31st, the North Vietnamese launched the Tet Offensive, a turning point in the Vietnam War. 70,000 North Vietnamese and Viet Cong forces swarmed into South Vietnam. The South Vietnamese and US troops held off the offensive but it was such fierce fighting that the U.S. public began to turn against the war.

In 1970, Angelita was 39 years old when on May 4th, four students at Kent State University in Ohio were shot and killed by National Guardsmen. The students were at a peaceful demonstration protesting the invasion of Cambodia by US forces. There had been precedent for the killing of American college students. The previous year, on May 15th, Alameda County Sheriffs used shotguns against U.C. Berkeley students at a protest for People's Park. One student died, one was blinded, 128 were injured.

In 1996, when she was 65 years old, on July 5th, the first cloned mammal - "Dolly the Sheep" - was born in Scotland. She had three mothers. Dolly lived to be 6 years old and produced 6 lambs. Since, other sheep have been cloned as well as horses, pigs, deer, and bulls.
