From the "BIOGRAPHY OF JAY C. HORMEL" by Walt Sehnert,

"Jay's time in France was rewarded in an additional way. He met and later married a French girl, Germaine Dubois, of La Vernell, France. (Just a word about Germaine -- She apparently was a character, with a quirky sense of humor. She was a fine (French ) cook. But once she made a beautiful tray of hors d'oeuvres for the members of her ladies' club. They later learned that the canapés were made out of canned dog food. When her husband brought the head of the Meat Institute home for lunch she served him horse-meat. All through the meal he commented on "the most marvelous steak I've ever eaten".


Wife of Jay Catherwood Hormel; mother of George "Geordie" Thomas, and James Hormel.
