Happy 90th Birthday, Aunt Beete!

Today my dad's youngest sister, Marilyn Electa Pape Hedger, turns 90!  She has six children, twenty-six grandchildren, and at least thirty great-grandchildren (I've lost count).  The picture below was taken at her 80th birthday party in 2013 in Orlando, Florida, thrown by her offspring, which my parents attended.

Dad always called her "Bebe" (pronounced beeb), so that's what we called her growing up, although most of my cousins called her Aunt Beete or Beetie (pronounced beet-ee or bee-tee), and that's what my siblings and I call her now.
