2022 Ruesink Reunion

Descendants of William Henry and Grace Knight Ruesink met at West Adrian Church (4545 Wolf Creek Hwy, Adrian, MI 49221) on Saturday, July 30, 2022, to renew acquaintances and to celebrate the life of Grandmother Grace.  Will and Grace attended this church their entire adult life, as did most of their grandchildren while growing up.


This 2022 reunion was conceived by Kay Svare, planned and organized by Kay, her brother Bill Ruesink and her sister Jan Kolb, and made successful by the attendance of over 50 family members.

Here you will find a partial record of the day's events: the program with links to text or an outline of each presentation, charts and maps of some of the genealogical displays, and a few photos.
