Peter, my husband, has some memory of his Grandmother, who died, when he was only three. Both his parents worked. Peter remembers Tante Mietze, his mother’s aunt, looking after him and his sisters following the death of Grandmother. Tante Mietze was born on the 17th of June 1873. She went into domestic service at age fourteen. She was an important person in his life. He remembers her all the time, but especially on her birthday.
This picture of Tane Mietze’s photo Peter took today. He published a post about her as well. Here is the link to Peter’s post.
