Marta on the Roof

Paul Zdepski's illustration of Tante Marta on the Roof
Tante Marta was a doer. She wouldn't shy away from rolling up her sleeves and climbing a ladder to fix the roof. I remember arriving to visit her with my father and being greeted by her calling down from above. She and sister Lydia lived in a ramshackle shed they bought from a Sears catalog. They referred to it as "The Chalet"... very high-brow.

What a gal.
