Townsend Family Pictures

I copied a few pictures from Joyce's photo album. This first one is George and his daughter, Geraldine. It looks like it was taken this past 4th of July. Here's one of Emma (2 1/2 yrs. old) and Katie (5 1/2 yrs. old), our youngest grandchildren/granddaughters. Daughter Joyce is their mother. Daddy and big sister are in the first picture.
Joyce with Katie and Emma. This was taken at a family reunion of their mother's family up in Auburn. The kids cousin, Pam and her husband, Steve, hosted the family. This is a creek that runs through their property.
I've shared numerous pictures of Denise and her family. Finally have a picture of all of Gerry's kids. Left to right the girls are: Wendi (youngest), Elizabeth (oldest child/daughter), the twins Joyce and Jenni (she is the oldest of the twins). Then left to right the boys are: Jason (youngest), Keith and Erik (oldest of the boys). Wendi lives in La Puente (So. Cal with Joyce), Elizabeth lives in Fair Oaks, Joyce lives in LaPuente and Jenni lives in Citrus Heights. Jason lives in Roseville, Keith lives in Ft. Worth, TX and Erik lives in Mt. Home, ID. Joyce, Jenni and Jason are married.

Grandson Seth and his girlfriend, Brittany. They are a very good looking couple. I got to meet her when the family visited a couple of weeks ago. Brittany is a very nice girl and it was fun getting to know her.
Emma feeding Granddad some grapes. This was taken when they went kayaking.
Geraldine. She is such a beautiful girl and an excellent student. She will be a senior in high school this year. We actually have 4 grandchildren that will be seniors - Seth, Ashley, Rebekah (Denise's daughter) and Geraldine.
Granddad acting silly. He is wearing Seth's cap. This was taken after they had gone kayaking.

Seth and Brittany.
Seth posted some pictures of he and Brittany. I told him I was going to copy a few of them too. I'll share those later.
We are a family of 4 sons (Gerry has an adopted son whose whereabouts are unknown), 5 daughters, 19 grandchildren, 3 son-in-laws, 1 daughter-in-law and 1 granddaughter-in-law.


  1. Beautiful family photos! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Huge family, huh. Add Denise and her family to the mix and it is even bigger. :)
