Lieselotte O’Meara was born in Danzig, Poland in 1920. She and her family defected to Germany after the Russian take-over of Poland. Lieselotte became a nurse in Germany during World War II and worked in an American occupied hospital in Bayreath, Germany. It was there she met her husband, David O’Meara. After his discharge from the U.S. Army, they moved to the United States, finally settling in Old Town, Maine in the mid-1950s. Lieselotte worked at Fogler Library at the University of Maine in Orono from 1972 to 1980. She passed away in 2010.
