Mother Knows Best

Imagining a conversation between the young Ann Romney (née Davies) and her mother, Lois Davies.

Ann Romney has known Mitt Romney since they were elementary school students, and they began dating in their teens. She converted to Mormonism as a high school student, in 1966. After Romney returned from his Mormon mission to France, they were married on March 21, 1969. You know the rest.

Roberto De Vido is a communications consultant, writer, cartoonist and jack of many trades. The former chief of Tucson Sentinel’s East Asia Bureau, he now lives in California (make of that what you will).

“Everyone in life has their challenges, mine have not been financial.”

— Ann Romney
