Rebecca

A great aunt or great uncle is the aunt or uncle of your father or mother. In other words, it is the sibling of your grandparent. Ex: My great aunt is close in age to my mother, so she feels more like an aunt to me. Ex: My grandparents both came from big families, so I have many great aunts and uncles.
