~“She Ain’t Aunt Bee”~

Published: Thursday, March 28, 2013 at 08:50 AM.

Do you know how old Aunt Bee was in 1949?

She was 47.

Times have changed, but the body in the picture didn’t belong to a 47-year-old woman.

Frances Bavier/Aunt Bee was born in 1902 and passed away eight days before her 87th birthday in 1989.

Regardless of the time, we don’t need Aunt Bee pictures in polka dotted bathing suits with her leg stretched out like a hot wheels track.

We simply need her to be – Aunt Bee.

We all have our favorite episodes of The Andy Griffith Show featuring Aunt Bee, none of which had anything to do with her looking like a pin up model on the wall of an army barracks.
