ANWAY FAMILY QUILT
One of the quilts on display at the recent Quilt and Textile Show focused on the history of the Anway Family. The Anways were early settlers in Odessa Township with many descendants spread across the United States. This wonderful heirloom was created by a granddaughter of Verl and Edna Anway as a raffle prize at the Annual Anway Reunion in 2009. Shown at the center are Verl and Edna surrounded by blocks bearing the images of each of their children. Shown in the group photo are the surviving children of this family at the Anway Reunion in 2009. Back Row, left to right: Joan, Richard and Shirley. Front Row, left to right: Bethel and Geraldine. What a wonderful way to preserve and enjoy family history!
