2008 Johring Cousin Reunion
This weekend my sister Sharleen and I put together a Johring cousin reunion. What a highlight and a blast it was! I think the world of my cousins, my aunts and uncle, along with my mother, brothers and sister, nieces, and nephews. We held the reunion out at the Fitch Land north of O'Neill. (Thank you to Dick and Lois for blessing us with their place). The reunion started with a Salmon Bake followed with a cream can dinner, and endless pies baked by my sister. On Sunday morning at the Fitch Land chapel we held our own family church service. My uncle Ken gave an amazing message from Philippians 4. Aunt Shirley sang along with Andy Stoddard. My Aunt Doris shared several readings----this was a special time I will never forget.
My cousin Gail and Danny came from St. Cloud. My cousin Rosemary, and Andy came from Ft. Collins. My cousin Doug and his amazing daughter drove from Indiana. My cousin Kendra came with her awesome daughters from New Mexico. My Aunt Shirley and Uncle Ken came from Portales, NM. My brother Fred, and Jeri came from CA. My sister Sharleen, and Dennis, all of their kids and their families except for Brock came from KS, IA, and Chambers. My brother Mark and Mitch came from Rapid City.And my cousin Kent and Aunt Doris live north of O'Neill, And last and most important, my mother who lives in O'Neill.
