I remember hearing a story about her and Walt's relationship from an episode of Jim Hill's podcast giving a retrospective of Disneyland during it's 60th Anniversary year. Apparently when Aunt Jemina got retired at Disneyland. Walt had to explain to her that "times have changed" and felt bad for Aylene Lewis since she really enjoyed playing the character at the park.FYI, Aylene Lewis was the actress (Face Character) chosen by the Quaker Oats Company, owner of the Aunt Jemina Company, to portray Aunt Jemina at Disneyland for over a Decade. She was chosen as she closely matched the original "image". She ended up finding a close friendship with Walt Disney.
