  1. I have so many memories of my Great Aunt. One was Aunt Billee had to have her coffee first thing when she wakes up,do not talk to her until she drank her first cup. When I told her and introduced her to the Navy man I was going to marry, Aunt Billee was the one who helped plan the whole reception, I was SO greatful for her help. She took care of getting me the place, and booked it, she skiped the wedding to put out all the food, and prepared the reception at the legion. She even came the night before to help us decorate the Legion. I remember saying good bye to her when my husband at the time was transfered from Long Beach to the East Coast, it was the hardest thing saying good bye to all my family. She told me to take care, call if I needed anything. I did call her for the history of the family health. She gave me the list of things, and was very helpful. She called to check on me too. I would write to her with a new address she told me she was going to get a address book just for me, since we moved just about every four years. I was also told from my father that I was alot like Aunt Billee. Which I think I am. I admired her. She has been in my prayers and will always stay in my heart!!! She was a good person, she stood up to what she believed in. I will miss her, I have missed my visits with her. My deepest condolences to Dae Lea & Don. You both are in my prayers. Love, Michele Perkins Markerink (Tim & Carolyn’s Daughter)
