The Bennett Clan

To the best of my knowledge, I have two living grandparents remaining - my paternal and maternal grandmothers. My paternal grandmother still lives in Indianapolis, IN. My maternal grandmother lives in St. Petersburg, FL. My paternal grandfather died of Alzheimer's Disease in March 1992. Alzheimer's runs on that side of the family, which, I'm sure you can understand, scares me a lot! I honestly don't know much about my maternal grandfather.

On my father's side, I have two aunts and two uncles:

  • Chip and Aunt Linda

    Aunt Linda is great; she has a Master's degree in Molecular Biology, and often spends Christmas with us at my parents' house - even when they lived in Maryland.

  • Uncle Dean, Aunt Patti, Mike, Allison, Gillian

    Uncle Dean married Aunt Patty, and we always used to spend Thanksgiving day with them, and my three cousins, Jeff, Mike and Allison. Jeff is Married to Megan, and they have one daughter, Gillian. Mike and Mehri were married July 2005, and recently gave birth to their son, Solomon.

  • Uncle Don, Aunt Trish, Katie, Russell

    Uncle Don married aunt Trish, and along with my cousins Katie and Russell, they live in Shelbyville, where I grew up. Katie graduated from Anderson University. Russell attends Rose-Hulman.

    Aunt Helen Ann married Uncle Doug Strycker, who is a family physician. They live in northern Indiana not far from where I lived in Michigan, and have four children: Glenn, Paul, Beth, and Stan. Their oldest, Glenn, is pursuing his Doctorate in Chicago. Paul is on the same path, in New Mexico. He is married, and he and his wife Elizabeth have one son, Peter. Stan is an undergraduate at Notre Dame (where Glenn and Paul also attended).

On my mother's side, I have one Uncle:

    Uncle Andy married Aunt Barb. They are both correctional facility guards. I visited them a lot while in college, since they live in Rockville, near Terre Haute, IN.
