I married Ralph Larisey of Blackshear on June 24,1961. We just celebrated our 50th Anniversary with five of our children on a trip to Orlando. We had a wonderful time looking back and forward.
My educational background as a mother began on July 12, 1962, with the birth of our first son, Terry, followed by our son, Scott on March 5, 1964, followed by our first little girl, Cassadra, on December 6, 1966. She passed away on November 24, 1967. Three years later on July 30, 1971 we were blessed with another little girl, Karla. Then on March 2, 1973, our last son, Eric, was born.
Needless to say, I was kept very busy! In 1982 we adopted 2 boys (brothers). Matthew was three and a half and Michael was five months old. Our home in Offerman GA burned also in 1982 and we moved our rather large family to 419 Dell Street in Blackshear where we have resided ever since.
My husband, Ralph, owns and operates Lairsey Auto Sales and owns the convenience store located at Lairsey's Crossing on the Blackshear/Waycross Highway. He is also a minister and has pastored two local churches for 14 years.
For the past 33 years, I have owned and operated a catering business that has kept me very busy. I am fondly referred to by many Pierce Countians as "Miss Nadean, the Cake Lady." I love my career in catering and am still enjoying making birthday and wedding cakes for the many customers that I have served over the years.
Along side our 6 children, we have four daughters-in-law, one son-in-law and 14 grandchildren. Our oldest son, Terry and his wife, lost a 7 year old daughter to cancer in 2000. Needless to say, we were devastated as a family. Altogether we have 9 grandsons, and 5 granddaughters and another little one on the way. Now I spend most of my time being a grandmother and I love it!!!
Our family has always tried to put God first and we know that is why we have weathered the storms and are so blessed today in Him.
