Mother of Thirteen children whom are: Frank, George, Lillian (Dahlheim), Edward, William, Gilbert, Henry, Josephus, Mathilda, Teresia, Mathilda (Korth), Walter and Charlotte (Overbay).
My Mother (Mary)
told me that Elizabeth was a devout Catholic. She said when her sisters and her would spend the night / weekends with Grandpa and Grandma every morning they would have to say prayers before the cross and drink holy water.
She said Lizzie was a nice Grandma, when her parents divorced in 1952 she never saw Grandma again.
