Think you have a big family?
Well, meet 86-year-old Marie Frey. The Ohio woman is mom to 15 and just welcomed her 86th grandchild….
Frey and her late husband, Gerald, had 15 children. That’s led to 68 grandchildren and six step-grandchildren.
AND outside of her biological great-grandchildren… Frey has nine step-great-grandchildren. On top of that, she’ll be great-grandma to two more this year!
Marie admits raising 15 kids was “sometimes chaotic” but says the kids never stayed mad at each other for long.
All those kids are still close, both literally and figuratively. Marie’s family all live in the same Ohio country, with some living just down the street from each other.
The massive brood has frequent get togethers and, naturally, Marie hosts, saying “I look around, I think we’re lucky.”
