I could only find one maiden aunt in my family files. This was my great Aunt Ruth. Although I met her a few times when I was younger, I did not know her well and barely remember her. Ruth was my mom’s aunt. She was epileptic and never married. When she was young, she had a seizure when ironing and fell against the iron, which scarred her face. She lived with her mother until Grandma Copus died. Then she lived with her sister, Evelyn and later moved into the nursing home.
