Meet the Aungst Family
Bro. Ron is married to the former Norma J. Eddy, his high school sweetheart, to whom he has been married for 34 years. As a young girl, Norma followed in her family tradition by becoming a Rainbow Girl like her four sisters. Also like her mother, she became a member of the Grand Chapter of Pennsylvania, Order of the Eastern Star and the Order of the Amaranth, having served as Worthy Royal Matron of the Tiadaghton Court and as a District Deputy. Her decision to become so involved also was greatly influenced by friend Barbie Weisser.
Bro. Ron and Norma are the proud parents of four children:
Ronald Jr., is a senior research specialist for Albany Molecular Research, Inc., currently working in Singapore through December 2006. His wife, Dawn Dluge Aungst, daughter of R.W.P.G.M. Robert L. Dluge, Jr., is a Physician's Assistant. They have a daughter, Alexa, 3 1/2 months old.
Rachelle, a kindergarten teacher, resides in Loyalsock with her husband, Matt Salvatori, a social worker, and their 3 1/2-year-old son, Reis.
Renee, a graphic designer, lives in Williamport. She and her boyfriend, Jeff Dauber, have a daughter, Kadence.
Ryan, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, is a chef in Williamsport. He is engaged to wed Jen Shoemaker in August.
Ron Jr. and Ryan continued their family tradition by joining their father's lodge. Having enjoyed being in fraternal organizations in college, Ron Jr. wanted to continue to serve the community. "What better way than to become a member of a fraternity that my father so loved and enjoyed," he said. Ryan also was inspired to join because of the altruistic aspect of Freemasonry. "Just seeing all of the help Masons do to help charities, to be able to participate in the activities they do, and the opportunity to meet other interesting people caused me to want to join," he said.
