Death: Jun. 14, 1993

Mrs. Werts was the daughter of Thomas and Frieda Albers Thomazin. She was educated at Platte County Districts 14 and 31, south of Lindsay, and District 68 east of St. Ed.

On February 11, 1931, she married Martin William Werts at St. Edward Catholic Church. They lived in St. Ed until moving to Idaho in 1937. They returned to St. Ed in 1947 and in 1963, moved back to Idaho. They lived in Nampa until retiring in Homedale in 1970.

Martin died of stomach cancer in 1980. She then moved back to St. Ed to live out her days with her family there until she passed away at the Boone County Health Center.

She had 19 grandchildren, 15 great grandchildren, and one great-great grandchild at the time she died.

I remember Grandma as a very patient woman. I remember a time when she took care of me while my parents were on an errand. She took me to church with her. Afterward, she made me lunch and let me pretend I was a priest handing out the Eucharist to her with a piece of cut salami. I'd say, "The body of Christ," she'd respond with "amen" and eat it. She did that four or five times before she got sick of eating too much salami and steered my attention to other items on my plate.

She fixed elaborate breakfasts, lunches and dinners.She was famous for her fried chicken. I can still see her prepare the pieces, placing them into a brown paper sack with the seasonings and shaking it. I tried to copy it, but just couldn't get it right.

My father and I often talk about her.

We miss her.
