Five generations gather for reunion

Five generations of the Marvin Frazier family gathered in Pecos for a special reunion on March 19.

Marvin Frazier of Pecos is the eldest at age 93. The second generation was represented by his son, Clifford Frazier of Iraan. The third generation was represented by Darlene Frazier Schaub of Houston, while her daughter Valerie Jane Lyttle of Houston and granddaughter, two-month-old Tarah Lynne Lyttle of Houston represented the fourth and fifth generations.

The group met at the Pecos Museum for pictures to be taken on the curved staircase and in the historic saloon. Another lovely site for pictures was the fountain area west of the museum.

Other members of the family attending were Clara Frazier of Pecos, Maridele Frazier of Iraan, David Schaub of HOuston, Shauneen Hatfield and Biff Hatfield of Amarillo. Marvin Frazier's great-grand children attended also. They were Brandon Armbruster and wife Rachel of El Paso; Brent Armbruster of Midland and Scott Hatfield of Lubbock. Assisting with the photography was Kelly Walker of Lubbock.

On Saturday, March 20, all the family and friends met at the Alpine Lodge Restaurant party room for a surprise birthday party held in honor of Marvin Frazier. The serving table was decorated by a large silk flower arrangement, birthday balloons, and birthday cake. Other refreshments served included nuts, coffee and iced tea. The individual tables were decorated with small silk flower arrangements.

Longtime friends Woody Merritt and Mr. and Mrs. Bill Allen helped celebrate. Everyone had fun with their "remember when" stories.

After the birthday party, everyone was treated to a delicious barbecue dinner with all the trimmings at the Betty and Bill Allen home.

The Fraizer family feels so fortunate that there are five generations to celebrate. Ruenell Frazier Ballow and husband Jack of Crane, who had previous commitments, were greatly missed.
