Part VI, Chapter 28: Bessie
- Although Bessie "was never much of a housekeeper," it makes the most sense for her to stay home and care for Nanny (6.28.4).
- Nanny lives a good life, but the sisters can tell that her time is running out. That being said, she sticks around for quite a while. Like daughter, like mom.
- Manross and Lemuel die in the mid-'50s. Then, in 1956, Nanny passes away.
- As you might imagine, Sadie and Bessie are crushed. Over the next few decades, they lose several more siblings as well: Sam, Lucius, and Julia.
