Minnie (my grandma) was a daughter of John Christian Heiden and Johanna Fredericka Caroline (Voss) Heiden. She married Louis Charles Hoeft in 1905. Minnie and Louis's mothers were sisters. Minnie was the mother of Arnold, Helen, Dorothy and Donald and she was my grandma. I have very few memories of her as she died when I was little. I have an apron she wore. Its full of stains and has safety pins all over it. I cherish it.
