"Our Family"
Hi!! Welcome to our web page.
Patricia (Strahin)Markley

Hi,I'm Patty,I  come from a Scotch/Irish background.I have one sister and two brothers one of which is deceased due to diabetes complications.
My family has a lot of diabetes in it ,so I am a firm believer in the organ donor program.
My parents are both from W.V. I was born in Akron,Ohio.
We moved to West Virginia when I was 10.I've always enjoyed the outdoors.I think it's due to all the family camping trips.I've done my share of fishing and hunting .I gave up the hunting,but still enjoy fishing.It's a great stress free way to enjoy the afternoon.Unless of course you're using an open bail reel,and have'nt a clue how to use it lol.Then you might go home with a tangled mess.
My husband and I still go on camping trips,but now the camp is in a permanent location.
We have two children a girl Tina, and a boy Lee.They're both all grown up.Lee is married to Jody and we now have one grandaughter,her name is Anna Jane.
She's the daughter of our son,and his wife Jody.
Tina our daughter is is with a great guy Jim ,and his dog Maverick.
