This is one of my favorite pics of us and mother. It was one of the last trips that she took with me. She loved to go “bye-bye”. 

Six children together: Joseph Lee, Phyllis Jean, Sally Ann, Karl Thomas, Patricia Marie, and Sarah Kay Frederick.
Mother was a very loving and creative woman. She taught me how to sew at 16, she made us a braided rug, she knitted, crocheted, needlepointed, and quilted.

My Mother and Dad made our house a home. We celebrated many a birthday, and all holidays at this home, at 11039 Lafferty Oaks St., in Houston, Texas.

He preceded her in death in 2002. No children of this union. One step son, Michieal Wayne Mancill, who was more like a brother. He was a part of our family.

She was the life of the party. She and my Dad loved music and dancing. Lou sang and played the guitar. She lived, she laughed and she loved. Lou called her his “satan pussycat”, and the “princess and the pea”. She was spoiled by my Dad. They spoiled each other. They were each other’s best friends. They were deeply in love.

Mother passed away at home surrounded with family that loved her. She just drifted off, and the angels came to get her. My consolation was she was not in pain, and not alone, and I was able to be there with her for her last six years of her life.

Mother just passed today, March 9, 2012, in Rosharon, Brazoria, Texas. She left us peacefully to be with Jesus. I am so grateful to have been able to spend the last six years living together with Mother. I am grateful that I was not working, so that I had the time to care for her. My sister, Phyllis and I took care of her at home just like she had wanted. We got to be even closer than ever.

She was blessed with a good life, and a good family. She really was always there with all of us six children, up until the last week of her life. She fell on Monday, and we think she had a mini stroke, she never was able to speak clearly after that. She passed away on Friday afternoon, in her sleep.

Mother left us just like she wanted to. She had dignity and respect from all who knew her. Everyone who knew her loved her. She was a very giving person, and always was there for her six children. Our family was a very loving, close-knit family.

Burial followed at the same Oaklawn Cemetery, where Aunt Yvonne Phyllis Linderman Burgess (Levesque), Uncle Kenneth Edward Jackson, and Aunt Yvarra “Billie” Irene Linderman (Jackson) are buried.
Mother’s viewing was held on Monday, March 12, 2012 from 4-9pm. The funeral services were on Tuesday, March 13, 2012 @11am @ Oaklawn Cemetery Pavilion, on Hwy. 36 in Somerville, TX. location at:, Strickland Funeral Home at 545 8th Street, SOMERVILLE, TEXAS 77879, (979)596-2133.

ALL Of My Ancestors Have Fought and Died To Save America FROM Communism! They Emigrated From Europe To Escape Socialism and Communism, for Freedom of Religion, and To Have A Better Life! They all came her legally, learned English, assimilated into American society, and pledged allegiance to the United States of America.

NONE of them Froze, and Bled, and Died to allow America’s Liberties and Freedoms to be REMOVED by the Demon-Rats, Socialists, and Communists! Our White House and our Congress have been INVADED by them. The “Enemy Within” is working for the Devil NOT God

My Fifth Great Maternal Grandfather, Johann Jacob Linderman, emigrated in 1740 to Pennsylvania and he helped to build these “United States of America”. He was in the Pennsylvania Colonial Army. He worked for everything that he got for our family. I am proud to be one of his descendants.

I will do whatever I am able to do~ to help save our beloved America from the “Enemy Within”, the Socialist=Demon-Rats=Communists trying to destroy the United States of America! We will not submit to their tyranny and we will not give up our guns or our “right to defend ourselves and our families and friends” from the evil ones.

Anyone who wants Communism needs to get the hell out of America, and go to a Communist country! There are plenty of them! Stop coming from your third world “shit-holes”, and trying to change our beloved country into the “hell-hole” you crawled out of! God bless America. God save America from the “Evil Within”!!

Gladys resided with her Father beginning in 1941 after her Mother died, and cared for him up until his death in 1968, at 705 W. Third Street, Dubuque, Iowa.

Great Aunt “Gladys” worked as a Proofreader for the Dubuque newspaper, the Dubuque Telegraph Herald until she retired.

Then she sold the Linderman homestead at 705 W. Third Street, Dubuque, Iowa, and moved to Huntington Beach, California to be near her sister, Evelyn “Eppie” (Linderman) Ayala, and brother-in-law, Arturo “Art” Ayala.
Gladys always remembered the nieces and nephews, and Great nieces and nephews on our birthdays. 

We could always count on getting a birthday card from her with some money in it. She couldn’t afford much, but we thought that a dime or a quarter was a lot of money, because back then in the 1960’s it was. It made me feel special–knowing that someone that I hardly knew–way off in Iowa, was thinking of me.

Great Aunt Glady resided with her son Roy “Jimmy” Leonard Nelson Jr., at 4045 Linkwood Drive, Houston, Harris County, Texas for the last few years of her life.

Cremated in Texas and son brought her ashes back to Iowa and spread around Mother, Gudrun (Lund) Linderman’s gravesite, in Linwood Cemetery, Dubuque, Iowa, because that is how she wanted it.

I always think of Mother on Mother’s Day, in fact all holidays. Mother always celebrated life. We had many a family get together over the years. I miss those days.

She left a long, legacy of love, she did not always have it so good. Mother survived the “The Great Depression”, hurricanes, and floods.

She raised six honest, law abiding, American Patriots. Mother honored her ancestors and a lot of the information that I have accumulated came from her records and verbal conversations over the years.

Mother taught us to have manners and be kind to all. She gave me the love for reading. Mother was born 7 December 1927 in Dubuque, Iowa. Mother had many talents. She knitted, crocheted, sewed, and did needlepoint. She taught me to sew in 1970, at the age of 16. Mother loved taking trips and celebrating life.  She taught us that God, Country, and Family were most important in life. We were taught that there was no shame in any kind of work.


E.F. Linderman Homeplace, at 705 W. Third Street, Dububuqe, Iowa still standing in 2012.

Great Grandpa Linderman watched every phase of their home being built in 1920. Several generations resided there over the years, from 1920-1968, then Great Aunt Gladys Nelson resided there until her retirement. She then sold it to move closer to her sister, Eppie Ayala, in Huntington Beach, California. Gladys shared the proceeds with all of her sister, and she and Eppie and Art Ayala traveled to Norway, the land of their ancestors.

Her parents, Harry and Phyl Linderman resided with his father, Edward and Gudrun Linderman during the Great Depression Era.  My grandparents made pies to survive. Grandpa Harry Linderman sold pies to help the family survive those hard years. They were blessed to own their home and to have family to help them. They tried to grow their food in their garden.

I visited that home at 705 W. Third Street, Dubuque, Iowa in 1970, and the house is not that big. Edward, Gladys, Shirley, and Roy Nelson, Jr. and Sr. resided there until  1930. Harry, Phyl, and four girls, Yvonne, Billie, Jean, and Patsy Linderman resided there until 1930. Mother survived the “Cold War”, the “Depression”, World War II, Hurricanes, Floods, Divorce, Death, and Disease.

The Great Depression lasted from 1929 to 1939, and was the worst economic downturn in the history of the industrialized world. It began after the stock market crash of October 1929, which sent Wall Street into a panic and wiped out millions of investors.” source: The Great Depression

If it weren’t for my dear Aunt Yvonne, we would not have been blessed to be able to adopt my son, in 1982. She always had a big heart, and she took in a friend of her daughter, Cynthia. The woman had lost her job, was 7 months pregnant, living in her car, and the car was being repossessed because she couldn’t afford the payments. She told us that she was raped. She didn’t know who the Father was and told my Aunt that she never wanted any children, and that she was just going to leave the baby at the hospital. Since she told my Aunt, that she asked if she would consider allowing her niece and her husband to adopt the baby. She agreed. We paid all her medical expenses, and she kept her word, and allowed us to adopt him. God blessed me with a good-hearted Aunt, who tried to help others. And…a beautiful baby boy.
Poor Aunt Yvonne suffered from Alzheimer’s Disease in the last few years of her life. She resided with her son Edward Harry Levesque in Houston, TX up until he could no longer care for her, and she was moved to Garden Terrace Alzheimer’s Center in Houston, Texas.
