Aunt Deed

Aunt Deed

Aunt Deed was Grandmom’s first cousin. Her name was Anna Powers (I don’t know why she was called Deed, but everyone called her that), and she and her husband, Joe Christie, lived in Brooklyn. Deed’s father was Eddie Powers and her mother was Catherine Doyle, the sister of Grandmom’s mother, Annie.

Deed and Grandmom were very close. They would visit each other and vacation together. Deed was born in 1889 and died in 1968. In this photo, taken in 1954, she is sitting in the living room in the Craven home in Williamstown, PA.
