Ah!  Dennis Wanted a sister, and he begged and begged and begged.  Some how John and Emogene listened.  Dennis was 8 and then Sherri came along and he wanted his sister to be named after his favorite aunt.  And she was, but only with the middle name of Donadean.   Dennis DuWayne has a sister named Sherri Donadean Knuth.  I love my sister - we have unusual names in our family - my mother was named Emogene.

But then again, maybe they are pet names - Sherri has a son who she calls "Pauly" but he's really Justin Moore

Sherri's mother is Emogene and Sherri's father is John Arnold Knuth

 Dennis DuWayne and Sherri Donadean Knuth

Sherri Donadean Knuth, Sherri Knuth Moore, Sherri Donadean Saxe was born on November 7, 1956

Dennis Du Wayne was born on December 16, 1947.  Dennis wanted a sister and Dennis insisted his sister be named Donadean.  Donadean Grams was deceased and Emogene had a hard time naming her daughter after a sister that had died just a few months before Sherri's birth.

8 year old Dennis begged  Sherri was a good name and Donadean could be accepted by Emogene as a middle name
