    Have many fond memories of Bertie & Taylor at FCC and her great dinner parties held in their home. She was a wonderful cook & loved to entertain.

    I am one of several of Aunt Bertie’s nieces a nephews on th Staton side of the family. I have a lot of good memories of our family visiting Aunt Bertie and Uncle Taylor. Usually it was a Sunday afternoon and they would be our last stop after visiting other relatives in Kirklin and Frankfort. We couldn’t get there until later in the afternoon because they had worked late the night before at the Country Club. For a number of years on the last Sunday of the summer (day before Labor Day) Aunt Bertie and Uncle Taylor would take my older sister and I to Riversde Amusement Park on the west side of Indianapolis. It was something we always looked forward to. Great memories. Thank you Aunt Bertie.

    Aunt Bertie will be missed by all who knew her. Many happy memories of visiting her and my Uncle Taylor. We thought they were so cool because they worked at the Frankfort Country Club–always off limits to us as kids.

    We have wonderful memories of Aunt Bertie and Uncle Taylor from the time we were very young. Our father was Taylor’s brother and we use to visit the Staton side of the family in Frankfort and Kirklin about twice a month. Aunt Bertie and Uncle Taylor were always the last stop because of the late hours they worked at FCC. My father and mother were always respectful and didn’t want to disturb them too early. As kids, we loved Aunt Bertie’s entertainment space in the garage. She truly loved to entertain!

    Aunt Bertie was a beautiful person on the inside and out. She always seemed so glamorous and I could spend hours just looking at her dozens of colorful nail polishes. Another niece and I were lucky enough to spend a few nights with her and our Uncle Taylor during our summer visits to Frankfort. It was always a party at their house with Cokes in the refrigerator and the air conditioning turned up high so that we could sleep under electric blankets! She was the last living family member of that generation and she will be missed.

    Bertie, you were the last of so many wonderful aunts and uncles to leave us and we are so sad. So many great memories, to numerous to count. I have always loved this quote “long before we are ready, we sadly say goodbye, but there are those in a far more beautiful place who are saying “welcome home”.

    Bertie was our Aunt on my father’s side, we lived in Kirklin on a farm so going to visit Aunt Bertie & Uncle Taylor in the summer was a real treat for my sister and I. Every summer we would get to stay a week with Bertie & Taylor in the big city! We could stay up as late as we wanted, got to drink all the cokes we wanted in the smaller bottles plus Bertie would take us the Frankfort pool and let us stay until they closed the pool. Great summers for us farm girls. Attended lots of family reunions with her Taylor, also enjoyed the time the Bill, Florence and kids and Bertie & Taylor would come to the farm and the brothers would sit out in the yard & tell war stories and talk about politics.

    Bertie and Taylor and Lloyd Brower were the best combination by far that the Frankfort Country Club was blessed with. I never knew a sole that didn’t like Bertie a lot.

    I knew Bertie and Taylor as long as I can remember. They were dear sweet people who took special care of my mother and father. Bertie always had a good joke to tell. I loved them both.
