I am reblogging this post in memory of my Aunt Mary, who is the lady in the center. Today is her funeral in Kansas! Sure wish I could be there. She was a fine lady, indeed!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my Mom!!
My mother (Fannie Jane Beachy Miller) on left from Sarasota, Fl, Mary Beachy Miller (Mrs. David L. Miller) from Kansas in the center, and on the right, Esther Beachy Zook (Mrs. Henry Zook) from Kalona, Iowa where the three sisters grew up. They are the daughters of Ananias Beachy and Ella Mae Shetler. My mother is celebrating her 86th birthday today. This photo was taken in the summer of 2006 in front of Henry’s house. David’s had just arrived from Kansas, and Mom and I from Ohio. I saw them greeting each other, noticed the similar dresses and decided this is a great photo-op and so here it is.
