�Aunt� did not have children. She made herself available to her many nieces and nephews to spend nights, weekends and take vacations with her. During the 1950�s when she lived and worked in Jacksonville, she was their entr�e to Big City Life- movies at the Center and Florida Theaters, New York Style Cheesecake, shopping at Cohen Brothers, Wacky Golf and the list could go on and on. When nieces and nephews grew up and had children, she took those children under her wing as well.
