I took a trip to Holland from June 17th thru 24th, 2011.
This was one of my long time dream trips to go back to
my father's birthplace. With the help of the Bakery Owner
I found three names in the local phone book with my maiden
name(DeJoode). It was a worthwhile trip and we done some
touring in Moordrecht and around Amsterdam.
Prairie City, Iowa. The seven surviving children were all
there as well as lot's of family members and friends.
1st row: Willie De Joode, Trudy Hauserman and Carolyn
2nd row: Barbara McGrean, Beverly Pearson, Donnie De Joode
and Phyllis Connett.
Aaron, Amanda, Anna and Audrey. They made quite an
impression with all the family. They have a big sister, Rebecca.
On June 28th, we had lunch with Charile Green and Donis Hanrahan
We enjoyed their company and of course the conversation included
when all of us would be heading back to Leisure World!!
We have had a busy summer so far and it isn't over with yet!! We hope all of our Leisure World friends are doing well.
