I am a 62 yr old native of New Jersey ( born in Jersey City/ lived in Weehawken) who has lived in Southern California since 1973. The oldest of 8 children in a large Catholic family, I'm a full time Realtor who loves horses, vintage hats, the Renaissance Faire and attending daily Mass at Our Lady Help of Christians Traditional Latin Mass Chapel in Garden Grove, Ca. Find A Grave is a wonderful compassionate resource giving information & closure to many!

The Andy Griffith Show is probably one of my all time favorite TV shows, with Aunt Bee as my favorite female character.
My late great Aunt Margaret was almost exactly like her & they could have passed for sisters! Hence the choice of my moniker. As everybody knows... Life is better on the front porch with a lemonade & cookies!

In my Relatives & Friends virtual cemetery, please visit my
Dad: Donald Patrick Dillon
My Aunt Dolores DeLorenzo Weber,( both buried in Colestown Cemetery, Cherry Hill , NJ. )
My friend Sharon Eckstein Condon in Holy Sepulcher Cemetery, Orange California. (Age 41- She died of cancer in Jan 2012 leaving 6 children behind.)
My Uncle Peter Andrich who died in a head on collision in 2007 from a drunk driver just a month after my Dad died.
James Doonan in Holy Sepulcher Cemetery in Orange, Ca. Just passed away 2013. He was the mentally handicapped brother of a friend.


** In December 2012 I bought a vintage hat from the Bing Crosby estate that belonged to his first wife DIXIE LEE CROSBY, which I wear only to Sunday Mass. It's brown straw with real silk pansies & ribbon, with a little veil in perfect condition. It came with a handwritten receipt dated 1952 , which was the year she died. It's very special to me as I feel that by getting her hat, she knew I would remember to pray for her soul...Requiescat in Pace! **
