Auntie Jo loved to bake for friends and family. Her favorite three recipes to use were her German Apple Cake, this French Coffee Cake, and the cinnamon rolls she made from the box of "hot roll mix." She was a family treasure when she lived near us in Seattle after Uncle Al died. Our children were young and she loved baking for them, babysitting for them (we were never sure who was watching out for who!), and loved it when we had laundry for her to fold at our house. I took her grocery shopping every week for several years. She was one of a kind and we loved her dearly!
