Aunt Gene was an amazing lady. I will treasure the memories of family time at the camp in Robbinston, boat trips out to the islands (collecting shells, getting to drive the boat, and not knowing if we were in the US or Canada), and the last visit to Calais when Gene and I shared memories of my Dad. Rest in peace, Aunt Gene. You will be missed.
