Brock family reunion held

Aug 08, 2017

The descendants of the James A. and Sarah E. Brock family met for their annual reunion on Sunday, Aug. 6, 2017, at the Autumn Park Apartments community room in Washington, hosted by Tracy Baumert. There were 27 in attendance. Following the blessing by Gene Baumert, a bountiful cooperative dinner at 1 p.m. was enjoyed by all.

Those in attendance were: Jeannie Shipley of Carrollton, Texas, and Joe Brasie of Houston, Texas; Laura Jones, Rashawn and D’Anthony Thyen of Racine, Wisconsin; Shelley Baumert of Cedar Rapids; Jordynn and Jaydynn Baumert of Vinton; Larry and Connie Baumert of Marion; Mark Baumert and Lynn Zimmerman of Ainsworth; Richard, Jody, and Anita Adler of Mount Pleasant; Kathy Brower of Richland; Loretta Streigle of Sigourney; Dennis and Judy Baumert of Keota; Joseph Baumert of Des Moines; Gene Baumert of Keota; Gwen Thyen, Tracy Baumert, Emma Baumert, Brooklyn and Devilyn Ruggles, and Granger Gessling, all of Washington.

Loretta Streigle of Sigourney was the eldest in attendance; and 6-month-old Granger Gessling of Washington was the youngest.  Thinking-of-you cards were signed for Marilyn Van Fleet and family of North English, and Margaret Burk and family of Bucklin, Missouri. The guessing was played, with Gwen Thyen of Washington named the winner. Everyone enjoyed playing bingo, with many prizes given.

Due to the low attendance, it was decided to dissolve the annual Brock reunion in August, and the Brock descendants have been asked to join with the Baumert/Brock descendants at their annual reunion in July.

Picture-taking and visiting rounded out the day.

The 2018 Baumert/Brock reunion will be held on the second Sunday in July at the St. Mary’s Hall in Keota.
