The Lorin K. Dudley Family, of Iowa City, Iowa

About Our Family Research

My father (Lorin Keith Dudley) was one of 6 Dudley children from Mary Irene Lynde (adopted) and Quentin Claire Dudley. My mother, (born Diana Sprague, known as DyAnne (or Diana) Turnis)) and full-sister Stephanie were born to Betty Ann Ranberger-Sprague and James Sprague, but Stephanie was adopted by her mother's sibling as a baby (so she was known as a Ranberger her whole life).
Robert Paul II, Rebecca Kay and Angela Lee were born to Betty Ann Ranberger-Turnis and Robert Paul Turnis.

Robert Turnis II, is living with his wife Julie Thompson-Turnis, (married April 24, 1993 in Cedar Rapids,IA)in Hiawatha, Iowa, with their daughter Kelsey Lynn and Julie's daughter from a previous marriage, Sarah Nicole Snyder.
Steven and Rebecca Kemble (married November 27, 1981 in Cedar Rapids,IA) reside in Panama City, Florida with their son Derek Steven.
Angela and Mark Chalstrom (married February 12, 1994 in Marion, IA) live in Marion, Iowa, with their daughter Katelynn Leigh, and Angela's daughter from a previous marriage to Frank White, Alyssa Ann.
Stephanie is married Wayne and they live in Iowa City.

My aunt Carol was married to Ronald Lee O'Brien and had three sons (Joe, James, and Ed O'Brien), and now is remarried (since 1989) to Larry Johnson. Carol and Larry live north of Cedar Rapids, in Center Point, IA.
Edward Dudley, was married to Joan, and they had a son (Seth Dudley) and twin daughters (Jill and Megan Dudley) all whom reside in Iowa City, IA.
Ernst Dudley was married to Sandra Kay Kuhl and had a son (Corey David) and a daughter (Christina Kay). Ernie is currently married to Sharon Corene Bain-Dudley (whom he married September 27,1986 in Cedar Rapids, IA) and they currently live in Texas.
Edward and Ernst are identical twins.
John Dudley married Peggy Ann Wensel-Dudley on May 6, 1978 in Cedar Rapids, IA. They have two sons (Benjamin Lowell and Brandon Lee) and live in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Benjamin is currently a freshman at University of Northern Iowa.
Lorin Dudley married DyAnne Sprague (Turnis) on September 6, 1975 in Cedar Rapids, IA. Since 1977, they have owned and operated Dudley Brothers Company in Iowa City. Their son, Jamake, is attending Kirkwood community college for food and restaurant management and cullinary arts, resides in Iowa City and works for Dudley Brothers Company. Their daughter, Rhiannon, is a senior at Iowa State University (Ames, IA) studying marketing. She has two horses whom she rides and trains in Dressage (Ben and Dante), and teaches lessons at Stagecoach Stables in Ames.

My information has come from my parents, aunts, uncles and grandparents. The Dudley family just had reunion in a small town north of Cedar Rapids, so I was able to gather information there also. I would love any more information on either side of my family. Thank you for looking at my (unfinished) family tree!!!
