Homecoming for Alvillar Sisters
Alvillar sisters Theresa Speake of Washington, D.C., and Jessica Langston of Panama City, Fla., (born in Clarkdale and Jerome and schooled in Cottonwood, Clarkdale and Mingus) visited with family and friends in Cottonwood the week of March 23. They are featured here in a photo with a former Clarkdale schoolmate and current Cottonwood resident, Vera Bueno. Theresa and Jessica were accompanied on this trip by their cousin Vangie Torres, who graduated from Cottonwood High and has resided in Phoenix for many years. Vangie's deceased parents (Edward and Vera Aspetia) and Mother-in-law Luisa Torres, lived on Eighth Street in Cottonwood since the early '40s and family still resides there. It has been several years since the sisters last visited when they attended the Spook Nite celebration in Jerome.
