Additional notes: Alma C. Andrews raised beautiful flower gardens and also great vegetables including a wonderful asparagus bed. She always had a cat or two and sometimes kittens and a bed of catnip for them. She also kept a flock of chickens and supplied eggs regularly for relatives, friends and neighbors. Along with her sister Mabel, they regularly visited their extended Norwegian clan and relatives in Lodi, Poynette, and Dekorra. As an unmarried elementary school teacher, Alma Andrews lived the classical life of a spinster devoted to her students in the 20th century MidWest.
