2018 Pierson reunion

The Pierson gathering of 2018 was wet and wild! We got to the shelter in Memorial Park in St. James at 11am. Brad, Katie, Osten and I prepared the tables by washing them and got the counters washed before the delicious food was put upon them.

We dodged the rains until about 2pm when we snuck the traditional photos in and then retreated to the shelter. Many of the people who attended are people who I don't think I can name, so hopefully Mom and Ruby can help me with filling in the blanks.

Nels and Annie Pierson had six children--Beverly, Ruby, Sonny, Vivian, Loie and Butch.

Beverly and Larry had four children--Barb, Debb, Craig and Jody
Ruby and Eldon had four children--Sandy, Shari, Dan and Doug
Sonny and Kayo had five children--Christina, Ericka, Andy, Johanna and Nels
Vivian and Clarence had five children--Kent, Kurt, Kyle, Cory and Karen
