The period of time I will always remember best with Aunt Treasa is when I was 12 and my sister Janet was 10, we stayed with her during the day for 3 months during the week because my dad, her brother Wilmer Kuechenberg, worked and had us girls for the summer. (My mom, Freda and dad Wilmer were divorced by then and we got to stay with dad that summer) So basically Aunt Treasa babysat us and we had the best time. We got to swim with our cousins Bobby and Billy in their big above ground swimming pool as Aunt Treasa watched over us and got the best suntan. Bobby and Billy used their grass cutting job money and took Janet and me to the movies (where we got to see Bye, Bye Birdie starring Ann Margret) Aunt Treasa spent so much quality time with us, like combing and putting my hair in a pony tail or just talking to us. She made me feel special and I grew to love her very much and have always kept a special place for her in my heart. Of course Bobby and Billing are Robert and William; but they will always be Bobby and Billy to me. I love you Aunt Treasa and I am going to miss you.
