The Aunt Jemima cookie jar was undoubtedly one of grandkids’ favorite objects in Grandma (Theresa) Reynolds’ home. The grandchildren remember the cookie jar being filled with oatmeal raisin cookies. There is some dispute over where the cookie jar was located in Grandma Reynolds home. Grandson Dana recalls it sitting by a black phone on a small shelf between the kitchen and living room but Joyce claimed it wasn’t. We’ll need some help from Uncle Joe, Uncle Carl or Aunt Edna sorting this out. When Grandma Reynolds passed away, the cookie jar moved to Lyle and Joyce’s and was always considered a family treasure.
