  • Notes 
    • I was told that as a very young child, I would climb on her lap and beg, "Rockie-Rie-Rockie".

      She & Uncle Fred lived up the street from us in Detroit during the mid-to-late 1940's. Uncle Fred was then a bus driver, so Aunt Rie made me a smaller version of Uncle Fred's uniform - I was so proud when I wore it. Now that I am reminising, she was a wonderful cook and baker...

      So many fond memories of Aunt Marie. After Uncle Fred's tragic death. she married "Uncle James" Millsaps and they had a daughter, Martha Ann. Although the Millsaps were not blood kin, the Byars family extended their familial arms around Marie, James and Martha Ann and loved each as our own.... [6]
