The descendants of Russell and Beulah Houk met Saturday, Dec. 6, 2018, at The Gathering Place for their yearly reunion hosted by James (Bud) Houk and Mary. After a lot of visiting, cooking fish and frying potatoes by Bud’s grandson, Todd, and friend, Monte, and the blessing by Dale, the following partook of the abundance of food. The menu was chili, soups and desserts).
James and Mary Houk, Todd, Austin and Monte Van Strok – Springfield; Brent and Bonnie Houk – Girard, KS; Bill Jones – Odessa; Becky and Dale Ostermeyer, Hunter and Amelia Miser – Kansas City; Bruce Houk, Brett, Jessica and Henry Marshall, Adam and Jackie Glenn, Michelle Houk, Cathy Sells, Carol Marshall – Springfield; Roy and Sharlene Houk, Dale Daniels, Helen Daniels, Lila and Robert Starbuck – Stockton; Teresa Fellers – Hermitage; Darla Dybdoll, Mark and Jenn Keller – Humansville; Carl and Patty Jones, Jackson and Madaline Greer and Bud and Mary – Bolivar; Laura, Jeff, Gavin, Rylee and Shelbee Allred – Ash Grove.
Besides the fact of the loss of some, especially our older sister, Betty, in September this year, all had a good time and too much food, but hoping to meet again next year. Roy will be host, the good Lord permitting.
May God richly bless one and all.
