Test your memory of 1971 Kewpies. The list of paired names (below) are:
a) shortstop-2nd base combinations,
b) pop music duos from the late 1950s
Ron & Don Betz are recently appearing on the "found" Kewpies list, Kristine Moore has recently appeared on our "In Memoriam" page but Justine is still out and about, Jeff & Jon Fleener are 1972 Hickman graduates, and then there are the twins with a single nickname: Donnalores Hiatt.
Donna Sue (Hiatt) Wells lives in the country outside of Boonsboro and takes care of her family which includes husband Ervin who is a professional logger. She calls herself a "country gal" and loves the quiet and beauty that surrounds her.
Delores Ann (Hiatt) Fisher lives in Ashland and has worked at MU’s library since 1971 where she is Director of Inter-library loans. Her two sons John (30) and Joshua (29) are NOT twins but are both police officers for the Capitol Police in Jeff City.
What is amazing to consider is how many twins are on the Hiatt family tree. Donnalores had twin uncles who are just a few weeks younger (Dale & Gale), two sets of twin cousins (Marla & Darla and Ronnie & Donnie). Added to these three sets of twins, Ervin Wells' mom and his aunt were also twins (Osie & Ada).
Clearly, there’s something in the well water on the Hiatt property. Besides twins, the water has nurtured two charming and disarming personalities. Look for both of them at our reunion August 26-28, 2011.
But you won’t need to remember which one is which: just call out “Donnalores!”
