The 63rd annual reunion for the Norton/Corwin families was held on the 20th day of September, 2015, at the traditional gathering place – Nutrition Site, 301 West Monroe, Memphis, Missouri. Attendance was down from last year, but we still had forty-eight (48) family members and one (1) special guest from Colorado Springs, Colorado with us – Hazel Bradley. (Remember she was from the Bible Grove area; married to Vancil; daughter, Teresa who married Scott Robinson from Memphis; one son, Logan).
Random door prizes were given to the following persons: Gary & Debbie Kittle; Bob & Judy Norton; Lanea Whitney; Wayne & Terri Bulen; Lucille Campbell; Dona Herr; Emmett & Maxine Phillips; and Heather Jones.
Again there was delicious food available as all family members are great cooks! Emmett Phillips provided his special homemade hot rolls and from a special request, he made a double batch! The prayer was given by Bob Norton.
Attending this gathering (per the sign-in sheets and in no certain order) were: Lucille Campbell, Beverly Rhoades, Brandi (Kapfer) Quintos, Larry Cooper, Dona (Cooper) Herr, Carl Robert (Bobby) Norton, Greg and Jurden Phillips, Jewell Brown, Lanea, Hannah and Emma Whitney, Randy Norton, Heather and Caleb Jones and Scott Stoneburner, Gary, Debbie and Caleb Kittle, Patty and Bill Jones, Emmett and Maxine Phillips, Keith and Marilyn Dunn, Bob and Judy Norton, Brandon and Judah Jones, Cindy Robinson and Gerald Steen, David and Gina Kittle, Moriah and Zach Jordan, Kory and Korwin Norton, Danny and Becky Norton, Hazel Bradley, Reta Kittle, Tom and Marla O’Donnell, Wayne and Terri Bulen, Sara and Royce Jeffries, Don Norton and Wanda Homer.
The 2016 reunion will be held on the third Sunday of September as always. We will once again meet at the Nutrition Site in Memphis at noon.
