(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - A Yearbook Dedicated to My Great Aunt

OK...it's almost wordless.  A little explanation is in order.  I was looking for faculty pictures of my great aunt, Marian Brown, at the Greater Hazleton Historical Society when I grabbed this edition of the Hazleton High School Janus.  I had wanted to find her earliest faculty picture (I had already found some of her older pictures).  I opened the yearbook to the beginning and was preparing to flip to the faculty/staff section when I found myself staring down at a full-page picture of the woman I was looking for.  And as it turned out the yearbook had been dedicated to her.  I posted her obituary the other week and was impressed by the impact that she had obviously made.  This was at the beginning of her time at the school and she was loved enough to have a yearbook dedicated to her.  It makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.  Boy, I so wish that I had met her!
