Mina Vass, of Spinningdale, was my great aunt and died around 1979. I think her mother was Annie Logan who married John Vass (whom my dad was named after). She was one of 5 sisters, had 9 nieces and nephews. Her sister Annie was the maid/companion to Mrs Andrew Carnegie and died in a New York hotel fire in 1936.
