Writing a description of a person

Emily Morgan, My aunt
Of all my relatives, I like my Aunt Emily the best. She’s my mother’s youngest sister. She has never married and she lives all alone in a small village near Bath. She’s in her late fifties, but she’s still quite young in spirit. She has a fair complexion, curly grey hair, and deep blue eyes. She has a kind face, and when you meet her, the first thing you notice about her is her warm, friendly smile. Her face is a little lined now, but I think she is still rather attractive. She is the kind of person you can always go to if you have a problem.
Aunt Emily likes reading and gardening, and she likes to take her dog, Buster, for long walks in the park.
She’s a very active person. Either she’s making something or mending something or doing something to help others. She does the shopping for some of the old people in the village. She’s extremely generous, but not very tolerant of people who don’t agree with her. I hope that I am as contented as she is when I am her age.
