Aunt Annita

Annita Martins Frame  ::  November 11, 1923 – April 18, 2106


Dear sweet Aunt Annita passed away yesterday; she was 92.  I wrote a little bit about her life  here. 

She was Jim’s mom’s sister. Theirs is a fascinating story that started with a beautiful life growing up in Brazil–daughters of a French mom and a Brazilian dad–and concluded in California where they married brothers from Kansas.

Since Jim’s mom died when Jim was only 17, I never got a chance to meet Sonia. Aunt Annita was like a surrogate mother-in-law to me, the closest I would get to knowing Jim’s mom.

I adored Aunt Annita and am so glad she had a long, full and happy life.
