She takes the child home because she is hungry and knows she will find food to give her, even though it is 1936 and families across the country are struggling to keep food on the table. The child names Kate Merritt Angel Sister, because her mother has instructed her to stay and wait for an angel to find her.

This makes her an unforgettable character.
