Since it is that time of year, I thought I would post a couple of pictures from a past Jonas Reunion. Here are the photos I have from the 1957 Jonas Reunion held in Richmond, Cache, Utah. This is the family of Joseph and Lillian Jonas.
A shot of the end of one of the picnic tables.
Left Side of the tables (l-r): Evan Jonas (1928-1999), Lona Jonas (1930-2012), Dee Jonas (top of head only), Les Jonas (eating corn, 1953-2011), Unknown boy, prob Lillian Talbot (hidden, across from Ray Talbot), Hilma Jonas (1918-2000), Ellen Jonas (head above Hilma). Right side of the table (r-l): Connie Jonas, Paul Jonas, Janeal Jonas, Sherlean Talbot, Ray Talbot (1926-1980), Lorenzo “Ren” Bowcutt (1883-1966), Earl Jonas (1944-1988), LeReta Andersen side profile at end of table.
Then a shot of a couple of the kids relaxing under a tree with Uncle (and Dad) Ellis.
Ellis Jonas (on the ground), children (l-r): Paul Jonas, Julie Jonas (sitting on Ellis), Janeal Jonas, Sherlean Talbot, MaryLou Jonas.
The Joseph Jonas Family.
Joseph and Hilma with (oldest to youngest) Earl, Nancy, Evelyn, Ellen, and Helen Jonas.
The LeReta Andersen Family.
Lowell and LeReta with (oldest to youngest) Randall, Denzil, and Kendell Andersen.
And the whole family. Click on it to get a closer look. The rows are not exactly clean, so I will do my best. I have it split into four rows, the sitting on the ground row in front, the sitting second row, the standing front row, and the back row (with only the four).
Fourth (l-r): Earl Jonas (1944-1988), Ray Talbot (1926-1980), Joe Jonas (1917-1993), Norwood Jonas (1924-1975). Third row: Janeal Jonas, Lowell Andersen, Ellis Jonas (1926-2012), Lona Jonas (1930-2012), LeReta Andersen, Hilma Jonas (1918-2000), Lillian Talbot (1930-2009). Second row: Dee Jonas held by Connie Jonas, Nancy Jonas, Denzil Andersen, Randall Andersen, Evelyn Jonas (facing toward Denzil), Lillian Bowcutt (1898-1987) holding Cheryl Talbot, Ren Bowcutt (1883-1966), Unknown. Front: Paul Jonas, Les Jonas (1953-2011), Doug Jonas, MaryLou Jonas, Julie Jonas, Ellen Jonas, Sandy Jonas, Helen Jonas, Sherlean Talbot.
I have reunion pictures from 1958, 1959, and 1962 but there are not as many as this year. I will probably do all the rest of the reunions I have in one post at a later date.
