Make-A-List Monday: Mothers of Many Children

I come from a large family. My mother had seven children altogether (five boys, two girls) and would have had more if she could have. I’m the youngest and I’m pretty sure I won’t have kids of my own, for health reasons mainly. Of the six above me, one has died, one has yet to reproduce and the other four have got ten offspring between them.

I thought I’d make a list of missing women who had five or more children. This list is certainly incomplete, because a lot of times I just don’t know how many kids a woman has. But I’m giving it my best shot.

Five children:
Cynthia Linda Alonzo
Doris Ann Brown
Josephine Carroll Chatraw
Dymashal Lashon Cullins
Barbara Jean Dreher
Angelina Joy Evans
Marion Fye
Marion Gonangnan
Cheryl Laverne Grose
Heather Elaine Klett
Linda Evans Lunsford
Shelly Renee Markley
Mary Jean McLaughlin
Marcie Tokeysha Peterson
Kelli Renee Rice
Bertha Beatrice Smith
Shirley Elizabeth Stevens
Vernette Lorraine Wester
Misti Michelle Whitfield

Six children:
Christie Marie Cales
Regina Marie Garcia
Angela Marie Gilbert
Frances Blanche Groves
Geanna M. Jones
Brigitte Renee Mitchell
Maria De Lourdes Pahl
Juanita Ritchie
Ollie Lee Roberts
Mae Catherine Rocker

Seven children:
Ann Lombard
Jacqueline G. Simpson
Georgia Ann Clock Smith

Eight children:
Jeanette DuPriest

Ten children:
Geneva Verneal Adams
Bertha Marie Tidd Newell
Verna Marie Richardson

Eleven children:
Roxanne Lacson

    Have you done a make-a-list Monday of people who disappeared while on vacation? Might be interesting.

    I’m the youngest of Maria De Lourdes Pahl. Wherever she is, I’ve missed my whole life of 35 years to say, “Happy Mother’s Day mommy!” I was 11 months old when she disappeared. This year 2015, I was diagnosed with breast cancer, and how I longed to be comforted by my mother. My heart and prayers go out to all the children of missing moms.
