She had white hair when she was little and her grandma used to tease her about being small. She saw her first fire at the family farm when she was 6. The combined locks fire engine came to help. As a child she liked to run track, play basketball and baseball, go roller-skating, dance, and sew. She only went to school through the 8th grade. She earned her living as a nanny for a Jewish family. She also worked for Zwicker's and Scolding Locks making bobbie pins. She also worked for St. Elizabeth's Hospital and cleaned the rooms. As she got older, some of her interests were playing bingo, eating out,
    playing cards, drawing, gambling, dancing and traveling. She met my great
    grandpa at a dance at the Cinderella when Frank asked her to dance the Blue Skirt Waltz. She drove home with frank in his 1939 Oldsmobile. She married Frank on June 18, 1940 at St. Paul's Combined Locks at 8 am. They had a breakfast dinner and a dance at the Nightingale. Their first home was in Appleton on Maple Street near the golf course.

  • Burial: He was buried in St Paul Cemetery, Combined Locks, Wisconsin.
  • Note: I don't know much about my great grandpa. He died before I was born. His
    name was Frank Schimmers. He was my grandpa's dad. He was born on
    December 9th, 1915. When he was little he liked to dance, play cards and read. As he got older he liked to go fishing, bowling, gambling, going to auctions and working on house building. He never graduated high school and only went through his second year. He married Marie Weyenberg and had 4 children. After 3 of the 5 children were born he went into the army for 6 months. I am not sure why he left the army. He earned his living by working in paper mills. One time when he went out drinking, he gambled his whole paycheck away. His paycheck was 16 dollars. Because he did this, they couldn't pay the heat bill and great grandma was not happy with him.
