CONNOR ABBOTT - Graduates from Missouri U Engineering School



It's a great pleasure to post the news that Connor has graduated from engineering school.  Connor is the youngest of the three offspring of Randy and Lynn Abbott.  His older sisters are Erica and Amanda.  They are the grandchildren of Margaret (my sister) and Norman Abbott, great grandchildren of Margaret Marie (Madden) Felin and James Louis Felin.

Here is a photo of the family at graduation:

INTERESTING TIDBITS (or TANDY WHATNOTS?)


Chris has been updating information about the New York Marathon which he is planning to run next November in memory of his mother and as a fundraiser for ALS.  This link should take you to the site where you can read Chris' updates as well as donate to a worthy cause:  https://www.crowdrise.com/fundraiser/campaign-updates/893258#!/status/2

I've had trouble accessing Crowdrise.com occasionally.  To find Chris' information, scroll to the bottom of the opening page, click on "Find a Friend" and type "Chris Spreitler" into the form that comes up.

In other news, I lifted this photo of a 1956 wedding party that Joe Felin was in from Facebook.  Joe was and is a good-looking dude.




JANICE MADDEN LeBLANC


Recently I received the letter, photograph, and document below from Janice Lou Madden LeBlanc, the daughter of my mother's younger brother Kenneth and his first wife, Annie Adelia Melton-Madden.  I wrote back to Janice Lou and got her permission to post this information here.

Janice Lou found The Family Gazette on the internet and has been acquainting herself with far-flung relatives she has never met.  If anyone is interested in contacting Janice Lou, please let me know. (rosefholt@gmail.com)
