Memories about Sigrid Marie Andreassen:
Adelma Tandberg (1928- ) said on May 05, 2006: I had a stroke in 2004 in July and I have lost a lot of memories. The family was originally in Jersey City maybe on Fifth Avenue. My mother worked as a children's nurse, when she came over to this country, for Adelma Marie Mertz. My mother named me after this woman. The Mertz woman wrote an article in a garden magazine. My grandmother worked in her half-sister's deli making the potato salad. When I went to the store there was no seating. Every day there was a specialty food at the deli.

Memories about Sigrid Marie Andreassen:
June Tandberg (1932-2011) said on May 10, 2006: We went to Detroit after my mother died and lived with my uncle Joe who was an architect. Joe was married to Yolanda Tandberg and Joe was an architect for Albert Kahn Associates, Inc. Thoralph was born in Olso in 1901. I think it was August 28, 1901. He worked at age 19 at his father's restaurant in Boston, it was called "Chasin's". He got ulcers so they sent him out west for two years in Tucumcari, New Mexico. June Tandberg Baker said on May 12, 2006: My mom was always in bed with her pneumonia. She was bedridden for several years. She worked as a governess in the home of a family in Long Island, maybe it was the Schneiders.

Memories about Sigrid Marie Andreassen:
Clifford Milner (1928- ) wrote on May 27, 2006: The only time I ever met Sigrid was sometime between 1935 and 1940. With my mother we had been visiting the Carl Tandbergs at their apartment in New York City when we went over to Jersey City. I have vivid memories of riding a trolley car up a big hill to get to Ralph and Sigrid's house. I think this is the only time I met Adelma Tandberg. In 1946-1949 I saw June frequently as she was living with her dad in Long Beach, California and I was on summer vacation from college at my folks place in Hynes-Clearwater (later renamed Paramount). I was told by my mother that Sigrid had a problem with alcohol and also was obsessed with her weight. She felt she had died because of alcohol and excess dieting.

Memories about Sigrid Marie Andreassen:
Pauline Tandberg wrote on May 28, 2006: The story as I recall from my father was that he was sent out of town to make extra money by his boss or a friend that had extra work to do. My father was grateful for the extra work and money until he came home and found the man with his wife. He said the man had been sending Dad out of town so he could be with her. The wife was unable to keep him away. Then she felt so guilty she used alcohol to drink herself to death.
