Norma Jeane with her sweet sister, Berniece Baker Miracle, 1944.
“‘You liked music a lot, didn’t you Berniece?’ Norma Jeane asked. ‘Did you sing too?’ ‘No not really. Well, just in church, and then once at a talent show.’ Norma Jeane responded, ‘Really? You did? I did, too! I did a tap dance and sang to ‘College Rhythm’. Berniece got excited. ’College Rhythm?’ You didn’t! That’s exactly what I did!’ Norma Jeane got very happy. ‘Oh, Berniece, you and I did the exact same thing.’ She stared at Berniece, like a statue, for a moment.” — My Sister Marilyn by Berniece Baker Miracle and Mona Rae Miracle.
