Truly surprised was Mrs. A. W. Hancock, 206 Stanton, on her 75th birthday anniversary earlier this month. She had just returned from a visit with her son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Hancock, and their children, Polly, Joan and Wayne Jr., in Seattle -- they drove over with her -- and that evening she went to the home of her son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Allen Reynolds, 528 Craig, for dinner. At the buffet supper she found no only the Reynolds' and the Wayne Hancocks, but her other two sons and their wives, children and grandchildren, and her sisters and brothers and their spouses. . . The group included the Reynolds' sons-in-law and daughters and their children, Mr. and Mrs. John Aborn (Beverly, and Lynn, Jennifer and Curtis of Moscoe, Ida., and Mrs. and Mrs. Gregory Miller (Carolyn) and Leslie, Kerrie and Sally of Salem. From Topanga, Calif., came Mr. and Mrs. A. W. Hancock Jr., accompanied by their daughter, Mrs. Howard Hamer, and her children Kristen, Jeffrey and Gregory of Marysville, Calif.; only family member not present for the event was Captain Hamer, who's with the USAF in Tokyo. . . Mrs. Hancock's other son, C. W. Hancock of Milwaukie, Ore., his wife and their sons-in-law and daughters, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Shumaker of Portland and Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth BeLieu of Walla Walla attended. . . Also on hand were Mrs. Hancock's brothers-in-law and sisters, Mr. and Mrs. Del Klicker of Walla Walla and Mr. and Mrs. William Plucker of Touchet, and her brothers and sisters-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Walter Coyle and Mrs. and Mrs. Victor Coyle of Walla Walla.
