Capitalization of "aunt" when preceded by a pronoun

-1

Is the title "aunt" capitalized or lowercase when it is preceded by a pronoun and followed by a name?

Example:

 

My aunt Denise said to go east on Main St.

 

or

 

My Aunt Denise said to go east on Main St.

 

Also, if a title is followed by a name and preceded by a name, is it capitalized?

 

Example;

 

Lexi's Uncle Fred took her fishing.

or

Lexi's uncle Fred took her fishing.

 

Lexi's Grandma baked her a cake.

or

Lexi's grandma baked her a cake.

 

I look forward to your answer.

 

Thank you,
