The picture above shows Catherine Berthin Lequien (on the left), wife of my uncle Henri Lequien, and my mother Paulette Lequien Burns (on the right). I took this photograph at Catherine's home in Tavernay, France in December, 1978. This was the first time in over thirty years that my mother and her sister-in-law Catherine had seen each other. At the time of this picture Catherine was about eighty years old and my mother was sixty years old. Catherine died in March of 1990. My mother died in June of 1995.
Catherine is buried in Tavernay with her son Robert Lequien, who died in 1975 following as the result of an automotive accident. Most of Catherine's Berthin relatives are also buried in Tavernay. Catherine's husband Henri Lequien and their first son Paul Lequien are buried in Toulon sur Arroux.
