  • Notes 
    • My mother was a hard working farm wife. She helped my father do the farming. No one could keep up with her when she thinned, and topped sugar beets by hand. She was also a fast efficient worker when it came to weeding sugar beets, beans, etc. When the family moved into the town of Gering, Scottsbluff County, Nebraska, she went to work for the Gering Bakery as an assistant baker. She worked there from 1944 until 1947. Needless to say the family enjoyed the baking skills she learned from the Gering Bakery, and the German style cooking she learned from her mother and step mother.

      She died in a nursing home in Bayard, Morrill County, Nebraska. My father was not able to find an available room in a nursing home in Scottsbluff, or Gering and was forced to place her in the home in Bayard. The nursing home was located at the east end of the Bayard Cemetery, and oddly enough, her mother, Katherine Anna Herdt, is buried no more than 30 feet west beyond the room that she died in.
