Here's what I think:

I agree with you MOSTLY, except that Diane, Jon, Lorraine & John are ALSO children, although their parents are not mentioned in the problem.

I figure there are:

4 grandparents - Diane, Jon, Lorraine, John

8 parents - Diane, Jon, Lorraine, John, Suzi, Frasier, Juan, Lorna-Jane

7 grandchildren - unnamed

16 children - everyone in this problem is a child of someone

16 cousins - they all have cousins (unless you're counting 2nd cousins, etc, then there would be... 25

and 16 siblings - because they're all siblings of someone else

?
