Mary Bailey Stoops 93rd Birthday Celebration

Great Family Reunion Day
Ninty-three years ago Mary Bailey Stoops was born the 15th of 16 children and the 10th girl in the family. Mother remembers the names of all her grandchildren because she prays for them. All of her seven children were present with their spouses. Grandchildren and great-grandchildren are too spread out to all be present.
Dustin  took the  photos of all relatives together.
