Obituary 1970

Aunt Lizzie and Frances

"When us kids were young we liked to go to our Aunts and look through their Stereoscope, and look at pictures in their National Geographic magazines.  What a collection, one whole wall with shelves holding only the National Geographic magazines.  Mom always reminded us to be on our best behavior and make sure our hands were clean when looking at those magazines.  They kept their home in immaculate order.  They were both very nice to us.  Aunt Lizzy so friendly.  Aunt Francis would have made a good teacher, as she kept her eyes on us.  All and all it was a joy to go to their house. "
