She had to a lot of chores at home. The chores consistedof picking berries, milking cows, feeding the cows, feeding the pigs, feedingthe horses, currying the horses, feeding the chickens, picking the eggsup, washing the clothes by hand, hanging the clothes up, carrying the woodin, starting the fire, churning butter, making lye soap, and carried outthe ashes. She had to take care of the pets.

She had to walk to school. It was one and a half mileseach way. She went to the Caribou School. Even during the winter. Ifthey even went to school. She couldn't play sports because there weren'tany. She had it tough. When the winter came and the snow was blowing,it would blow into the house and the snow would be on their beds.

She lived in three different places when she was youngand old. The places were Caribou, Grand Forks, and then Lancaster. Whenshe lived in Lancaster, she lived in the country. In Grand Forks, she workedat the Whitey's Cafe.

She was married in November 26, 1950. (The Baby-Boomeryear). She was 34 years old and my grandpa (Ole Sutterlund) was 32 yearsold. My grandpa was in a war. He was in the World War II war. It wasprobably very, very hard for him. He might have been worried if he wasgonna live or die.
