Elmer Mauritz (1896-1985) was born on the family farm
in Otter Creek Township. Florence Lindberg (1898-1992) was born
just a mile away on the Lindberg family farm. They lived on the
old Hamren farm and raised 3 children: Ruby, Delmar, and Ronald.
Elmer had the talent to "brighten up the room" where
ever he went. They both were very faithful in their service to
the Kiron Baptist Church.
