Hello Duckett-Pyles Family,


I hope this letter finds you and your family doing well. If we haven’t met yet, I am Dwylene, daughter of Dwight Sams, granddaughter of Lillie Mae Duckett Bennett, great-granddaughter of Daisy Lee Pyles and Nathaniel Duckett, great-great granddaughter of Sophia Duckett-Pyles, Will Duckett, and Hilary Pyles.


It is my honor to serve as this year’s reunion host. The anticipation and excitement are building as the time for our biennial family reunion this summer draws near. I’m looking forward to welcoming you to Richmond, VA this summer.


The reunion begins Friday, August 9th and continues through Sunday afternoon, August 11th. You are encouraged to “come early and stay late” for all the fun and fellowship that is being planned. Our theme is “Remembering the Past, Celebrating Our Present, and Investing in Our Future.” Our reunion colors are black and gold.


On this website, you will find very important information regarding the reunion:


Please read and respond as needed, by the deadlines. If you know a relative who has not received this information, please share it with them. You can also share my contact information (in black bar below) with them or email the name, address, phone number, and e-mail address of anyone who needs a letter to me at dwylene@duckettpylesfamily.com.


In the meantime, mark your calendar for August 9-11, 2024…I look forward to seeing you in Richmond! 


Dwylene Butler
