Another entry from “We of Johann Christoph Nuffer, also known as: Neuffer, Nufer, Neufer,” The book was published in April 1990 by Dabco Printing and Binding Co in Roy, Utah. I will quote from the book itself.
“PERSONAL MEMORIES OF MY GRANDMOTHER by Delores N. Anderson.
“I feel my little grandmother Regina along with my mother Kate were two of God’s choice spirits he placed on this earth. When I think of the trials and tribulations she bore, it breaks my heart. She lost 4 sons, 2 on missions and 2 in the war. Oh, how my heart ached for her.
“When we used to go to grandma and grandpa’s, pa would drive along the country roads, and we’d pick up sugar beets and put (them) in the car. At home grandma would clean them up, slice them, boil them, and use the syrup made from them as she would (use) sugar.
“Always in the corner of the cupboard were two crock jars with a lid or a plate over the top. When she was setting the table for dinner she would get two small bowls, and we would be able to enjoy her green tomato preserved and peach or some other kind of preserves with our meal.
“My mother told us that her mother Regina worked for Harold B. Lee’s and Ezra Taft Benson’s mothers. I remember how she revived dry bread for eating when the last batch was dry. She sewed and kept a lovely home.
“As her health was failing and she couldn’t communicate with people very much. I was one of them that could understand and figure out what she was trying to say or tell us.
“Several time Grandpa brought her up to her daughter Kates to stay when he had to be away on business.
“At one time I went down to Preston and stayed for a couple of weeks so I could hold the window frames up when grandpa was building a new house. I new grandpa George was short tempered. I told him, ‘If he said one cross word to me, I would go home to Downey if I had to walk every step of the way.’ Needless to say we got along fine. Grandma Regina got quite a chuckle out of that.
I have written about Regina before. Regina Friederike Nuffer was born 26 January 1869 in Neuffen, Esslingen, Wuerttemberg and died 10 March 1942 in Preston, Franklin, Idaho. She married Scheibel and then Wanner. Her daughter mentioned above is Alma Katherine Scheibel born 27 September 1889 in Pleasant Valley, Carbon, Utah and died 30 March 1969 in Pocatello, Bannock, Idaho. She married Naef.
