Once Upon a Town 48: Elsie Gladys SECHRIST



Youngest of the Stephen Stanley SECHRIST siblings was Elsie Gladys, my favorite aunt.  She had a library, and we shared gingersnaps and tea while we talked about books and so many things that I wish I cound remember.  She was already pretty far up in years by the time I had the honor of knowing her.


Well, now that I think about it, I have more than a few favorite aunts that I wish I'd known better...Anyway, here are the facts on Aunt Elsie:
