Octogenarian ‘Aunty Ilonka’ rings heavy church bells in Hungary

Téreny (Hungary) (AFP) – Following a family tradition going back five generations, Jozsefne Szedlak, or as everyone calls her, ‘Aunty Ilonka’, leaves her home for the nearby bell tower at least twice a day. As one of the few remaining bell ringers in Hungary, it is her duty to toll the bells at the Catholic church in Tereny, a village north of Budapest.
