Family gathers for reunion
On Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 2, 2013, 31 descendants of Winfred “Pud” and Arlene Houseal Norenberg gathered at a shelter in Marr Park in rural Ainsworth for a noon potluck. The weather was perfect, and a good time was had by all who attended. Those who couldn’t make it were sorely missed. This annual event will take place again in 2014.
Some of the family events that took place this year were: one death — that of great-grandmother Arlene Norenberg, 92; one birth — Seeley Butler, 2 weeks old; two weddings — John Anderson, Amber McFarland; two high school graduations, of Chris McConahay, and of Scott Mullin Jr.; and one college graduation — of Michael McConahay. Some people moved, and some had job changes.
Daughters of “Pud” and Arlene are Bonnie McFarland, deceased, and Judy Prior of Columbus Junction and Sue Wagner of Washington.
