Bio Photo I am actually a scrapbooker - which has led me into dabbling in geneology in trying to identify old pictures. My mother works very hard to complete our geneology, and on my husband's side I have had the fortune to have the hard work done by family members.

RE: Alaers Family
Hi Michelle,

I do know a little bit about the people you listed. I am strongly related to the Wilke and Ehlers families of Door County. I have seen in my family history, Ehlers spelt numerous ways including Ahlers/Alears/Alaers.

Off the top of my head, I can't make a connection between the people you listed and the Wilke family specifically. But I'll look in my documentation and do a little research. Do you know which Wilke family member gave you the photos?

I would love to chat more about our families. If you're comfortable, you can email me at

Take care,

Crave family
Thanks for getting back to me. I just wanted to let you know when I first started researching the Crave family about two years ago, I met (thru Find A Grave) three other Crave ancestors who had been also looking for Crave info, which I found researching my Caroline Crave Hanson, one if Stener's daughters. One of the other researchers I talk to every few months with new finds. Those small cemeteries we would probably never see. So your photos are and will be appreciated! Thanks again. Cyndi

Thank you photo of Stener Crave
Thank you so much for the photo of Stener Crave's stone. I live out of state and don't get to that area. I really appreciate seeing his stone. Thank you! Sincerely, Cyndi

Stener Cave / Crave
Thanks for letting me know about the typo. I've removed my memorial and added my older photo to the memorial.

I've photographed most of the cemeteries in the area and there are photo books at the Osseo Library. We're just finishing the Fairchild Cemt. Book which was a monster.

I'll be back in Osseo this July - we haven't decided our next cemetery to make a book for.

Verne A. Buend
Verne A. Buend, 97, of Augusta, passed away early Wednesday morning, Nov. 5, 2014, at Oakwood Villa Nursing Home in Altoona, where he had been a resident since May of 2011.

Verne, son of Hellick and Martha (Gunderson) Buend was born January 11, 1917, on the Gunderson homestead near Price, Wisconsin. He attended Carlson County School, the same school his grandfather and mother attended. He later attended high school in Osseo, driving to and from home in the family’s Model T . He once broke his arm cranking the engine and for 2 weeks had to ride the train to school. Before entering the service Verne had worked in the grain fields out west. He enlisted in the U.S. Army in October of 1942, and was stationed at Fort Bragg, N.C. and at Camp Forest, Tenn. He left for overseas in January of 1943, landing in England and was stationed 30 miles from London at Henley on the Thames. He left there on D- Day, June 6, 1944 and flew to Normandy. From there he went to Belgium, Holland, where he was stationed in Maastricht for several months. Just before the Battle of the Bulge he was stationed at Alsace Lorraine and then crossed the Rhine to Aachen, the first town captured in Germany in the “Battle of the Bulge.” He served a year in Germany before going to Marseille, France, and eventually returned home in December of 1945. Verne had served in the 134th Medical Corps as an ambulance attendant, transporting the wounded to hospitals and also delivered supplies such as gas and rations. After his honorable discharge he returned to the Augusta area where he worked as a logger for Bob Nicholson of Fairchild, and when he retired he was logging and driving truck for Koxlien Wood Products of Strum. Verne was united in marriage to Ida (Wampole) Gunderson on Sept. 28, 1966 in Waseca, Minnesota. The couple lived all their married life in the Augusta area. Verne enjoyed spending time hunting and cutting wood with his step children and their families.

He will be dearly missed by his 4 step sons, Gordon and Alice Gunderson of rural Fall Creek, Garry and Karen Gunderson, Gayle and Linda Gunderson all of rural Fairchild, and Dallas and Monica Gunderson of Green Bay; 14 grandchildren, several great and great-great grandchildren; special friend, Frances and long time friend and case worker, Mark. Verne was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Ida on June 9, 1999; sisters, Hazel Buend and Adeline Nelson; step-daughter, Lorrita “Lolly” Howell; and step grandson, Gregory Gunderson.

Funeral services will be held Saturday, Nov. 8, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. at the Anderson Funeral Home in Augusta, with Pastor Lamoine Jacobs officiating. Burial with military rites will be held in the North Branch Cemetery, rural Fairchild. Friends may call from 4 to 7 p.m. on Friday and one hour prior to services Saturday at the funeral home.

RE: Pasch
Anytime! I have been there! Loved the little restaurant inside the stadium. My family are "HUGE" packer fans! Extreme. Hubby is from Tampa! My brother lives in Greenbay and loves it there.

I did transfer the Pasch family to you. At first with that Packer profile photo I was hesitant! Don't you like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers...
