A bit over a year ago, I was up in Montreal for a wedding and had the honor of spending a day with my Great-Great-Aunt Rachel. The sister of my late Great Grandmother Helen, she lived in Canada so I only got to see her on occasion.
I just have to say what a wonderful woman she was. And how lucky I feel to have been able to enjoy her company on numerous occasions. She was always so cheery and proud of her family. She was a true Matriarch in every sense of the word and her accomplishments and benevolence throughout the community will never be forgotten.
These photos are from the last time I saw her on our outing for some tea.
Here is what is written about her in the Montreal Obits.
