Aunt Bee by gregchapin Aunt Bee by gregchapin
Aunt Bee - Beatrice Taylor (commonly known as Aunt Bee) is a fictional character from the 1960s American television sitcom The Andy Griffith Show. The show was televised on CBS from October 3, 1960, until April 1, 1968. The character migrated to the spinoff Mayberry R.F.D. (1968–1971) when The Andy Griffith Show ended its run.

Note that though she was the aunt of Sheriff Andy Taylor, virtually every character in Mayberry called her "Aunt Bee", regardless of whether they were related to her or not.

Frances Elizabeth Bavier (December 14, 1902 – December 6, 1989) was an American stage and television actress. Originally from the New York theatre, Bavier worked in film and television from the 1950s. She played the continuing role of Aunt Bee on The Andy Griffith Show and Mayberry R.F.D. from 1960 to 1970, and won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Comedy Actress for the role in 1967.

An older lady in my church grew up in Siler City as a family friend of Francis after she moved here in retirement. She has so many stories to tell of Aunt Bee along with a scrapbook of pictures including personal Christmas cards, thank-you notes, and letters written to her father from Ms. Bavier. Every time she would share a story, people would encourage her to write it down, and she has finally agreed to do so. Would there be any way that you might allow us to consider using your drawing on the cover of her book?
