She took pride in growing her garden each year-then canning of each item. Always having an abundance of food on hand. Still finding time to raise the family and do volunteer work with the schools and church. Honorary member of Trinity Lutheran Church and Abigail Circle. Their travels over the years took them to many parts of the Dakotas, Minnesota, Montana, Washington and Canada, visiting family and friends. Traveling by car, trains and in later years the airplane.
