Matriarch of Five Generations

Evelyn Jean Blencowe was born in Tamworth, NSW in 1915. She grew up in Leeton where she brought up her family. Jean now lives in nearby Griffith and is the proud grandma of 36 descendents. Jean and Eddie Luhrs had their first child when Jean was 23. Now at 96 Jean is the head of five living generations. What an outstanding achievement.

Gen 1: Jean & Eddie Luhrs (1915-1986)
Gen 2: 3 Children
Gen 3: 10 Grandchildren
Gen 4: 16 Great grandchildren
Gen 5: 6 Great, Great Grandchildren

Jean has proudly brought many of her family to reunions at Griffith in 2004 and Port Macquarie in 2008.
