Indi 500 gal is a relation apparently

Got this email from my aunt today.
Hi all,
I had an email from my cousin in Roseau. She and her hubby are going to San Diego via Minneapolis. While they're in Minneapolis, they will visit with Sheila's sister, Jean, who just lost her husband to cancer. They are going to watch the Indy 500 with Jean and her kids. Danica Patrick is Sheila, Jean, and Tallie's cousin's kid. The cousin was Bev Flaten. As an adult, Bev has lived in Wisconsin and Illinois and that is where Danica was raised, I think. Bev's dad, Uncle Gilmore's brother, was killed in a car accident many years ago up by Roseau, I think. Not sure about the location, though. Sometime in the 1970's, though.
I was looking at pictures of her on the net and she certainly does look like the Flaten girls did at that age. And is just as petite and athletic as they were.
Well, we have a graduation party to attend in GF today and then Carl and Roberta's daughter's in Karlstad tomorrow so best get ready for the first one.
Take care and hope to see you all soon.
