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.
