Aunt Kate


I remember our Aunt Kate was there when we needed her. When dad had a stroke she came to drive us to Charlottesville to see him several times. She let me drive some; she had a 49 Ford I think.


Kate Steppe was a sister of my grandfather Cleveland Steppe. She was married three times, the first time to the father of her children, Pete Francisco. The children were Winston and Braxton Francisco. Braxton was a pallbearer for his grandmother Emma.



Kate and sister in law Dolly. See how they are happy being together! Dolly wears a baseball cap and big apron.
