My mother's sole remaining sibling, my Aunt Betty, died last week. Her funeral was on Friday, which also happened to be my birthday. I drove to Boston on Thursday night, and returned the next day shortly after the service.

Oddly, my mother's other sister, Katherine Liston, died last April, and her funeral was held on Aunt Betty's birthday. Good thing I'm not superstitious!

Here's her obituary, published in the Boston Globe, October 27, 2005:

Elizabeth A. Ryan
Of Lexington, formerly of Arlington and Cambridge, Oct. 22, 2005. Beloved daughter of the late Thomas F. and Margaret (Desmond) Ryan. Sister of the late John, Thomas and Mary Ryan, Margaret Fenton, Katherine Liston, and Frances Bouchard. Survived by many nieces and nephews. She will be remembered in a Mass Friday morning at 8:00 AM at Youville Place, Pelham Rd., Lexington. The Brasco & Sons Memorial Chapels, WALTHAM, assisted the family with arrangements.
