My Aunt Mary was a business owner of her in-home beauty salon. One of my favorite childhood memories was getting together with all of the aunts, uncles, cousins and my Grandmother at her farm in PA. While the ladies hung out in the kitchen and the men in the parlor, we kids played in her salon. Even the boys got rollers put in their hair and their nails polished. I could hear the adults laughing in the kitchen hysterically while we laughed playing “beauty salon”. That’s what I remember most about going to visit her wherever she lived at any time in my life... the laughter! She gave the wonderful gift of laughter to the world, her family and friends. She was funny, positive, hard working, nurturing, caring, loving, beautiful, fashionable, religious, smart, and strong. I will miss her terribly.

When I was a young girl. we were visiting Aunt Mary at her farm in Carmichaels, Pennsylvania. She had dairy cows out in the barn, and I went out to watch the milking. My uncle at the time said that he had a special cow that provided chocolate milk and of course I just had to see that special cow. I watched as the milk was squirted into the milk can and low and behold it was chocolate in the can. Well, of course had I been older and understood the tricks that adults can play on children, I would have realized that chocolate syrup had been put into the can before the milking. But, for years I swore that Aunt Mary's cow gave chocolate milk. I have passed that story on to my children and granddaughter and it always results in laughter.
Aunt Mary, you will always be in my heart and your memory passed to your great nieces.
