StoryCorps: Maria Behm and Angela McLellen-Desai

By Mark Scott


Buffalo, NY – WBFO presents another conversation that was recorded at the StoryCorps booth located outside the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library downtown. In July 1993, Buffalo native Maria Behm, who was 37 at the time, lost her husband. She had three young children and was living in Los Angeles, far from her family. But Maria and her kids not only survived their ordeal but thrived.

Her sister, Angela McLellen-Desai, invited Maria to StoryCorps to talk about it. Click the "listen" icon above to hear their conversation now or use your podcasting software to download it to your computer or iPod.
