Elizabeth Taylor heads six generations

Having six generations of living family members is a rare occurrence. However, the birth of Lily Marie Sharp to Monica Marie Lundeen on Oct. 26 allowed Elizabeth (Bence) Taylor, 98, to achieve the honor of becoming a great-great-great-grandmother, creating the sixth generation of living relatives. Family members pictured (in no particular order) are Elizabeth (first generation); her daughter, Mary Sissel (second generation); Mary’s son, Glenn (third generation); Glenn’s daughter, Ann Yepsen (fourth generation); Monica Lundeen (fifth generation) and Lily Marie Sharp (sixth generation).
