I am the paternal great-granddaughter of Andrew and Selma (Ehnert) Johnson and Edward and Hilma (Peterson) Wuollet. My maternal great-grandparents were Frank and Maggie (Brooks) Day and Henry and Anna (Cummer) Zentner.
I was born and spent my childhood years in northern Minnesota. In 1980, my family moved to Wisconsin, where I met and married my husband.
He is the paternal great-grandson of Charles and Marie (Stenner) Baumeister and Fred and Olivia (Walker) Updike. His maternal great-grandparents are Jacob and Annie (Cook) Richter and Francis and Mary (Elskamp) Neff.
