They have 100 grandchildren!


Zenger, Leo and Ruth from Illinois, USA, have a 59-year marriage and 12 children, 53 grandchildren, 46 great-grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild. Since 1962, they run a family business and most relatives live nearby. Ruth laughs that their family could create a single-town community.

Organizing a family dinner requires perfect organization and renting a larger restaurant that will accommodate everyone gathered. Most often, the Zenger rent a room at a nearby church, and you need a lot of food. Most often for one meeting: 10 turkeys, 50 loaves of bread, 10 kg of ham or 50 liters of drinks.

One thing is certain, despite the few inconveniences - it is always fun!
