"Karen E. Kirkhart was born and raised in southern California in the working-class suburb of Pomona on the eastern edge of Los Angeles County. I am the daughter of Mabel E. Reinhardt and Harry B. “Kirk” Kirkhart. I am an only child. My maternal grandparents, Jacob B. Reinhardt and Alvina P. Schoenfeld, were dryland wheat farmers on the plains of northeastern Colorado, and my paternal grandparents, Dell S. Kirkhart and Pearl S. Onstott, came from a family of railroad workers in Iowa. I never met either of my grandfathers, but I knew both grandmothers. Grandma Pearl was an independent woman who aspired to live above her means. She wore fancy hats and a fox fur that both fascinated and horrified me; the little fox with its glass eyes biting its tail to secure the stole in place. Grandma Muzzie was a farm wife who could fix anything, sew anything, grow anything, and cook anything. Both sides of my family featured strong women."
