I love this new-to-me photo of my great-grandmother, Mary Brown Young. She has always been Grandma Costello to me. We would visit her at the care facility where she spent many of her last years in Spokane, Washington. She was a spunky little Scottish lady. I wish I had paid more attention during our times with her. She probably shared some stories with my Mom on our visits, but I don’t remember any of them.
We have very few photos of Grandma Costello. This one comes from Aunt Barbara’s collection. Aunt Barbara is the daughter-in-law of Mary Costello and has been one of my most valuable sources of information, photos, stories, and details on my Costello line. I am so thankful for her!
I did a little bit of editing on this photo to clean up dust. It’s a bit light so I also did a few other edits to create these two versions. I can’t decide which of the three I like best. Which do you prefer?
Happy Thursday, I hope you find a fantastic new ancestor photo today!
