FAMILY MEMORIES:

Son, Benjamin Ulmer: "I remember my mother as a very nurturing andloving mother who devoted her whole life to raising and caring for herfamily. A family of seven in what now seems like a large family,meant that the work was endless with no conveniences as we now knowthem. In addition from time to time her brother, father and a nephewwould live with us alternately in a house too small for a largefamily. In addition, all too often some family would drive inunannounced for dinner after church. Of course she was able to cookthe tastiest meals and every time we came home to visit, our favoritemeals were served. I especially remember that she served all myfavorite dishes whenI came home on furlough. I felt a specialcloseness to my mother. She was always there for me when I neededsomeone to talk to or to lay some tough problem on her shoulders. Shehad little formal education but seemed wise philosophically. We spentmany an evening talking farinto the night while the family was asleep. I do feel however there is no relationship like a boy and hismother."

Daughter in law, LeNora Priebe Ulmer: "Martha particularly taughtmehow to prepare certain types of meat. She was always so very gladwhen we would visit her and loved and doted over her grandchildren andwas interested in knowing how they were doing. We can still see herinour mind as we were leaving, waving goodbye and saying, "Drivecarefully"."

Son, Karl Ulmer: "Mom was always the "pusher" for church and helpedget us on the "journey of faith" in our lives. I am so grateful forthat and that all my brothers and sisters are in that relationshipwithGod. She did an outstanding job! While in the Army her lettersalways had a biblical reference or two that she said helped her. Whata way to teach - she didn't press, but you wanted and did read thepassages. I loved my mother a lot and sadly, never really told herthat.

I remember at harvest time she would come out to the harvest field andhelp me finish shocking a field that Dad had cut (binder and horsesinthose days). We'd finish and she'd grab me and say, "Let's dancealittle to celebrate the finished job," and we did! She was a lady of200 + pounds at that time. She loved to dance and I don't know thatshe and dad ever danced."

Daughter, Anne Ulmer Stroh, Emde: "Mom was a terrific cook! I can'teven begin to compete with her talent - didn't even need a recipe andit always turned out perfect. Mom thought it was a sin to drink wineand she complained about dad making beer, but when her doctor saidwine was good for you, she really drank it. I think of the folksoften and realize how lucky we were to have them as parents."

Grandson, Thomas Stroh: "As I recall, Grandma loved to cook largemeals for family gatherings. One time when we were there, the oldLassie dog (Collie) wouldn't take food from me before we went tochurch. The dog was under an old conestoga wagon. I kept pushing thefood closer and he severely bit my nose. They had to drive me to thedoctor as it wouldn't stop bleeding. I cried a lot. I don't know howGrandma kept the blood from getting all over, but she did. I evenrememberthe navy blue dress with white polka dots she wore that day."

Granddaughter, Dianne Stroh Barilotti: "We were so young when we leftNorth Dakota so my memories come from visits there in the summer.There were always good smells in Grandma's house, especially thekuchen she would always make. I still have a patchwork quilt that shemade with all of my old dresses as a child. What a gift of love! Ialsoremember the clock in the house was so loud..."

Granddaughter, Denice Stroh Hayashi: "Our visits with ourgrandparents were so infrequent that I don't remember much. I doremember that Grandma was a pretty good cook and there was always akuchen for dessert. I guess that's why my mom was such a great cookand baker!"

Granddaughter, Deborah Stroh Powers: "I remember visiting NorthDakota and all of Grandma's good cooking and homemade recipes. Weleft North Dakota when I was very young and our visits were infrequentso unfortunately we didn't get to know our grandparents as well as Iwould have liked."

Daughter, Mildred Ulmer Gebhardt: "Mother always did a lot ofbakingfor our big family. One of my jobs was to go down to thebasement torefill the flour container used for making dough. Thebasement was also used to store all kinds of produce including applesthat Dad sometimes bought by the crate. Well there was nothing Iliked better than fresh apples! (Except maybe baby peas in their podsfrom the garden). On this particular day when I was sent after flour, I raced to the basement and as soon as I was out of sight, Ihurriedly munched down at least four apples before coming back. Iremember reminding Mother later that the apples were running low andthought Dad should buy more before we ran out!"

Granddaughter, Susan Gebhardt Meland: "Grandma used to come to ourhouse in Monango and cook with Mom. I don't know the names of all thedishes but I remember eating cubed bread fried in butter-very good.Ialso remember eating canned plums and various forms of noodles. Ibaked a few times at Grandma's house in Ellendale. On one occasion Iwas pouring tapioca beads into a tablespoon. She was bending over topick something up. When she stood up her head hit the tablespoon andthe tapioca went flying everywhere. I was afraid she would be mad butwhen I saw her expression we both burst out in laughter. It is oneofmy favorite memories. I also remember what a treat it was to havefresh macaroons at her place. She and Grandpa had a really cool retrotable in their kitchen. I think it was gray and white with metal legsand red chairs. I'm not sure why that is such a vivid memory, but mymind's eye is automatically drawn to it when I imagine their house.My mother used to tell me what an excellent cook Grandma was. I loveto cook and like to think that I inherited the passion from Grandma.Irecall spending extra time in Grandma's bathroom so that I couldsmell all of her perfumes and talc. Another memory I have fromvisiting Grandpa and Grandma is their neighbor. I think her name mayhave beenElsie? She was middle aged and lived with her elderlymother. She must have been developmentally disabled and I rememberplaying catch with her."

Son, Milton Ulmer: "I'll never forget her loving dedication inproviding for her children's needs, or her ability to feed so manypeople with so little. Mom was up early every Sunday morning tobutcher at least two spring fryers, bake two pies from scratch, makebreakfast for nine people, get the cream separator washed, and sevenkids washed andpolished for church and be there by 9:30 A.M. (Gettingthere late was even more sinful than not going at all!)

One year, Mom made my favorite prune-filled cookies for Easter.Knowing I would find them and help myself, she hid them in thebasement. In fact, she hid them so well that she didn't find themuntil Christmas when she picked the same spot to hide her Christmasbaking. Needless to say, the prune-filled cookies from Easter had bitthe dust! I always kidded her about that.

What little time Mom had for hobbies or pastime, I remember herembroidering and crotcheting. I also remember that anytime shereceived a box of candy she would open it and offer the first piece tothe personshe got it from and say, "Love the giver"."

Daughter in law, Avelon Ulmer: "Martha probably shared many morethoughts, ideas, etc., with me than with most of you, since we livedclose by the first few years that we were married and everyone elsewas gone. She would sneak over to our trailor on Easter morning witha "basket" with some of that wonderful kuchen with "sort of afilling". At least that is what I named it since she couldn't come upwith an official name for it, (I think it was made from just sugarand cream), and I would always call it that and she would laugh.

Sometimes I would find her sitting in the rocking chair and wouldaskher, "What are you doing?" And she would say, "Just collecting mythoughts." When the family gathered at the farm for special dinners,she would ask me to bring the sweet potatoes. She would say, "You cando them so much better than I can." (Who's kidding who?) She alwaysmade me feel like an important part of the clan. She found it quitehandy to borrow "things" once in a while. One time, it was achocolatecake I had baked for serving to some friends when we returnedfrom the movies. Well, Martha had unexpected company and didn't havea thing to serve, so... (I think Gertie helped her with this smallcrime!!)

Martha and Alfred always had a good relationship with their children'sin-laws. She enjoyed the company of all of them now and then.Shetold me one day, "You know, Mr. Borgen (my father) is really agood-looking man, BUT don't you tell Alfred I said so!

I remember the sadness we felt when she began to forget how to dothings. One day, Milt and I went to Ellendale to make dinner forthem.I was making knephla (yes, SHE taught me how) and as she watchedme,I asked, "What do you think this is going to be?" She smiled andsaid, "KNEPHLA!" She did not forget what it looked like or how ittasted. She gave so much, and asked so little. She always rememberedeveryone with a birthday or anniversary card with a hand writtenscriptureverse."

Granddaughter, Kathie Ulmer Hay: "She was an awesome cook! She wasalways busy with something...baking, gardening, mending,needlework...I don't recall ever seeing her sitting idle."

Grandson, John Ulmer: "I remember staying at Grandma's house inEllendale during the day while Mom worked at the County Courthouse. Iwould usually get there when Grandma and Grandpa were finishingbreakfast. She always had a glass of nectar (she never called it"juice") waiting for me. I would sit at the kitchen table while theyread their Bibles and daily devotions.

Sometimes, we would go out to the garden and pick whatever vegetablewas ready that day. Other times, we would water the flower beds.When it was naptime, Grandma always tucked me in, "snug as a bug in arug." When I woke up from the nap, Grandma would be watching soaps onTV. She called them her "stories". She was usually doing some kindofneedlecraft (I'm not sure, but I think it was crocheting - couldhavebeen something else, though ...) while she watched TV. This waswhenwe would play horsy-ride. She would cross one leg over the otherat the knee and I'd sit on her foot, grab her hands, and "ride thehorsy." It was great fun!

There were always cookies or treats of some kind at lunch time,whichwas between 3:30 and 4:00 (just like it was on the farm). Thebest treat, by far, was Grandma's peach pie. To this day, I've nevertastedany better.

The last present I remember receiving from Grandma was a handwrittennote in a birthday card when I was 11 or 12 years old. She decidedthat year to share her favorite Bible verse, Matthew 6:33 - "Seek yefirst the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these thingswillbe added unto you." Although I've forgotten most of my birthdaypresents over the years, that one has stayed with me."

Grandson, Daniel Ulmer: "I remember that Grandma was a very good cookand that she usually had candy in the house. I also remember shealways watched her "stories" on TV after lunch and we would have to bequiet while she listened and watched."

Daughter, Monica Ulmer Hallerud: "Mother was an emotional personandshowed her feelings openly. We always knew how she felt aboutissues.She had great compassion for her fellow human beings. In the'30s there were a lot of unemployed people who rode the rails andthen got off and walked to the nearest farm for a hand-out. If abeggar came walking onto the farm property, she would always give hima meal, even though she may not have had a lot to spare.

I remember her as being serious and dedicated to all of her many tasksas a farm wife and mother and everything was done to perfection. Momalso loved to laugh, sing, dance and play games, though I knowworkcame first and there was never as much time for fun as she wouldhaveliked.

We didn't always have a lot of new clothes to wear to school, butIremember going to bed one night and Mother stayed up late to getsomework done on the sewing machine. The next morning she had sewednew suspender skirts for Gert and myself to wear to school and we werethrilled beyond belief!

The upstairs bedrooms were cold and unheated in the winter time andIremember Mother warming flannel sheets in the oven at bedtime, thenGert and I would get carried upstairs with the warm blankets wrappedaround our legs and feet. It was pure heaven!"

Granddaughter, Karen Hallerud Moore: "Our family used to vacationatGrandma and Grandpa's house almost every summer while I was growingup. I know they lived on "the farm," but the Ellendale house waswherethey lived as far back as I could remember. I can see it now.It was located on a nice residential street without curbs orsidewalks. The house was white with dark shutters and a square frontporch with steps. The gravel driveway led to a detached garage. Ahuge garden took up at least one third of the backyard. We used toenjoy Grandma's flowers both in the garden (zinnias, I believe) and inthe rest of theyard. One summer we took a family picture in front ofthe rose garden and my brother, Eric fell back onto the pricklybushes. I don't know if he remembers that or not. Usually othercousins were there to visit at the same time and we'd have a greattime playing hide-n-seek in the yard amongst the bushes, etc.

The side porch off the driveway led right into the big "country"kitchen. The large table had a deep red shiny Formica top. We sharedmany delicious home-cooked meals here with Grandma, Grandpa, Aunts,Uncles, and cousins. On the wall in the hallway were wedding picturesof all my Aunts and Uncles. At the other end of the hall, near thebathroom, there was a little wooden door in the wall that opened up tothe laundry chute. This was particularly fascinating as a kid. Iknow wemust have thrown things down and then hurried to the basementto see where they landed. The guest bedroom had a beautiful hand-madequilt on the bed. The middle bedroom was of particular interest tous. It had a big deep freeze. It also had two curio cabinets filledwith glass figurines. Grandma collected glass dogs and Grandpa hadevery kindof horse you could imagine. The closet shelf was where theboard games were located. I know there were several but the one Iremember most was "Mousetrap." I wonder if they bought thatparticular game knowing that it would occupy kids for a long time...

Grandma loved to hug us and would always say, "(Ich liebe dich" ("Ilove you") in German. She was a fabulous cook and made everythingfromscratch. I still make some of the cookie recipes she handed downto Mom. Grandma always looked nice. Her hair was curled and shealways wore a dress, even in the kitchen!"

Grandson, Eric Hallerud: "My main memories of Grandma and Grandpa arelinked with those of our family's summer vacations. We always sawthem in warm weather, when their flowers and backyard garden were intheir glory. We probably made the trip about every other year. Irecall the trips from about the mid 1960's until the early 70's.

After a long car ride from Illinois (no A/C, no interstate highways,lots of dust, me riding in the middle of the back seat on "the hump",and the inevitable road construction), we'd eventually get toEllendale. We'd park our blue 1959 Buick with the big fins in thedriveway behind Grandpa's green 1959 Chevy with the big fins. Grandmawould comeout onto the porch of the little white house as we pulledin. Big hugs for all and I'd get my cheeks pinched and Grandma wouldcall me her"little livasuck".

I recall her thick German accent, the wonderful smells from herkitchen (it seems like she was always in there), and that she alwaysseemedto be busy doing something. I also recall her flowers in thefront yard and in the back and especially the time I fell into themand got scraped up pretty good.

My birthday falls in late July and we always seemed to be travelingwhen that date came around. I recall at least one birthday at Grandmaand Grandpa's. It may have been around 1966 when I turned nine.Grandma had a cake for me and I was thrilled. I think we have a photoof me standing in the backyard holding the cake.

Another strong memeory is of having to spend some quiet time in theafternoon while Grandma "napped". I found out just a few yeas agothatshe was really watching her "stories" on TV. Good for her! Iremember playing the Mousetrap game with Olaf and Karen. There weredisplaycases in the room for Grandpa's horses and Grandma's dogs.

I recall one time we had a large family gathering at the house (mayhave been after the 50th wedding anniversary celebration). Grandmacooked a turkey (or a duck)? and it was fantastic. Great smells andmeals make great memories.

My last memories of Grandma were from the trip we made in the summerof 1972 for Kathy Ulmer's wedding. When Grandma passed away I wasgone for college and unfortunately was not able to go to the funeral."

Grandson, David Hallerud: "I don't have a whole lot of memories ofGrandma and Grandpa Ulmer as they were getting older by the time Icame around, and we didn't live near them so I didn't have muchcontact with them. I do remember visiting their home in Ellendale acouple oftimes in the 1970's and a few distinct memories include:Picking and eating peas from the vegetable garden in the back yard,the distinctive "stuffy" smell of the garage, the sound the car madeon the gravel driveway as the tires dug into the gravel, the annoyingsound of the clock ticking all night in the spare bedroom as I triedto sleep, and Grandpa's old green Chevy with "fins" on the back."

Daughter, Gertrude Ulmer Anderson: "I loved and respected my mothergreatly, but we didn't always get along well ... especially when Iwasa teenager! Even though I was known to be strong willed,independentand rebellious, I learned how to bake, sew, cook and clean. Boy, didwe learn how to clean! Every Friday, the upstairs had to bedusted, floors dry-mopped, beds changed and waste baskets emptied andon Saturday, the whole downstairs including scrubbing and waxing thekitchen floor and damp wiping the kitchen woodwork. Can't forget tothrow in the major spring and fall housecleaning, when the ceilingsand the walls were washed down! (Cleanliness was next to godliness).

Mother was a marvelous baker and cook and made such a variety ofwonderful foods. We usually had a houseful of company after churchevery Sunday as all the relatives knew where to come for a good meal.Over the years, I've heard from some cousins who have remarked abouther good cooking.

Holidays were always an important event in our home and although wewere poor, Mother was sure to make it special! I still remember mostof the Christmas decorations we put up in the living room like theredand green rope that went from corner to corner and crossed in thecenter, with a red paper bell hung in the middle and a lot of thedelicate hand blown decorations that went on the tree. The rope andthe tree would be trimmed with silver tinsel. I remember all thegreat cookies and kuchen she made at this time and where she hid thecookies in the cold north closet. Many a time they were a tasty treatin the morning before we came downstairs!

Good Friday we always had wide noodles with prunes or apricot andprunes over the top. Man, they were good! On Easter morning we hadkuchen and Easter Eggs. For dinner we had baked ham, macaroni andcheese or scalloped potatoes and lots of vegetables and pickles fromthe cellar. I'm sure there must also have been burnt sugar pie fordessert.I remember how dismayed I was when I found out there was noEaster Bunny and how I flew into Mother's arms crying when I walked inon Anne and Millie as they dyed the "bunny's eggs."

Looking back over the years, I have come to realize what a verygentle, loving, caring person Mother was, and I wish now I would havebeen closer to her when I had the chance. If only she were here now toshare her thoughts and her stories."

Grandson, Douglas Anderson: "I remember that Grandma always woredresses, made good chicken & dumplings and had really good pies in thefreezer. One time when I was little and we were visiting there, shemade chicken & dumplings and was standing over the roaster on thestove. She was talking to herself (about the dumplings, I guess) andI heard her say, "I can't open these." I took hold of the roaster lidandtold her, "I can." I thought I was being a big help, and didn'trealize that dumplings get ruined if you open the lid before they aredone! I don't remember if I ruined them or not, but I guess we atethem and enjoyed them as much as usual."

Granddaughter, Gwen Anderson Struble: "Oh, the hugs and greetingsaswe gathered inside the little entry way at the Ellendale home.Grandma would squeeze us and tell us how big we were getting, andalways asked what grade we were in now. It always smelled like yummycooking and we all hoped for dumplings! We'd settle into the middlebedroom, (you know, the one with that annoying tick, tock...chime,chime) and promptly asked if we could play with the electric trainengine. It was great! It made a loud whistle and would back up andchange directionswhen it hit one of those metal-legged red kitchenchairs, or the yellow step stool.

Sometimes we would lay on the floor in front of what we thought wasthe largest television ever made and play hide 'n seek in the laundrychute cupboard. Sometimes we played in the cold, dark basement.Therewas a big hole down there and we stayed away from that. (I thinkit may have been for a sump pump). We played with a few old playdishes,but thought it was kind of scary down there.

I remember studying all the dogs in Grandma's glass case and Iespecially enjoyed all the wedding pictures down the hallway of myaunts anduncles, and my mom and dad. Sometimes I'd go into Grandma'sroom andlook into her big, round mirror and sneak peeks at herjewelry. Lotsof sparkley stuff!

Grandma had a sense of humor and always took her teeth out whenever weasked. What a trick! My special connection to my grandma is asfollows: One day I was having a converstation with my mom and Iexclaimed, "Mercy," as I often do, and Mom looked at me and said, "Mymother used to say that."

Granddaughter, Sandra Anderson Bolduc: "I remember Grandma standingon the porch of their house in Ellendale. Her face would light upwhen we drove in the driveway and she never failed to wave good byewhenwe left. She always seemed to be wearing an apron. I rememberher cooking chicken and dumplings and the house smelling so good. Shewasa neat housekeeper.

I also remember her sitting in the chair in the living room and makingus laugh. We used to ask her to take out her teeth. I also recallthevery annoying clock on the chest of drawers in the middle bedroomwhichmade it hard to sleep!"
