Today would have been my motherâ€™s 100th birthday!
Ruth, and her twin brother, were born in Wahoo, NE on 9/18/1920. She attended Wahoo Public Schools and graduated in 1938. After receiving her teaching certificate at Luther College in Wahoo, she taught in a one-room school north of town. She later worked at the Nebraska Ordinance Plant near Mead, NE and met my father there.
After they were married, they lived in Wahoo for several years before moving to Lincoln where they raised three children, my brother, Doug, me, and my sister, Mary. Mom died in January of 2011 at the age of 90. I miss her very much, she was a wonderful mother and grandmother.
