Married William Vicente Grootonk on Aug. 15th, 1921 at the age of 23, in El Paso, Texas, USA.

She was also part of the street car accident that took place with family. She lost her daughter Matilda Eliza 9 years old that day. Not long after her husband William Vicente Grootonk passed away.

This is my Great Grandmother aka: Big Grandma who made the bestest spaghetti ever!!
