CHRISTmas in Bavaria, Germany

BavariaSnowGermanyMy mother’s ancestors were from Obermochel, Pfalz, Bavaria, Germany. They emigrated in1740, and they helped found America. Mother loved the snow and Christmas. Mother you are so loved and missed. I am so grateful that I was blessed with such a wonderful mother, and He allowed me to keep you for 58 years of my life. You only had your mother for 36 years, but I am so grateful that you were able to share your memories of her with me. I was only 9 when she passed and I never got a chance to know her. Enjoy your time with your family in heaven. I hope to be with you and them again.

Jean Marie (Linderman)Frederick Mancill, daughter of (Phylis at birth) Phyllis “Phyl” Eugenia(Palen) Linderman and Harry William Linderman. Her mother died when she was only 36 of Hodgekin’s Disease. She never really got over it, but just had to learn to live with it.Granddaughter of Frank Joseph Palen and Emma Elsie (Claussen) Palen, also of Edward Francis Linderman and Gudrun Ivara (Lund)Linderman of Dubuque, Iowa.First husband LeRoy “Lee” Eugene Frederick. Married 15 November 1947, Liberty, Texas. Divorced 1968. the Frederick homestead was at 1709 Cheston Drive, Jacinto City, Texas 77029.

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.

Second husband Louis “Honey Lou” Clifford Mancill. Married 5 December 1968, Houston, Texas. The Mancill homestead was at 11039 Lafferty Oaks St, Houston, Texas.

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. 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 friend. 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, 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 me 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 Linderman (Levesque), Uncle Kenneth Jackson, and Aunt Yvarra “Billie” Linderman (Jackson) are buried.

BAVARIA     BAYERN.

Land in south eastern Germany, and former Duchy, Electorate and Kingdom, and one of the longest lasting political units in European history, though its borders have changed.

The present Land of Bavaria (Bayern) stretches northwards from the Allgäuer, Bayerischer and Salzburger Alps to lands beyond the River Main.   In the northwestern corner is the city of Aschaffenburg on the River Main;  in the northeast are the upper waters of the Rivers Saale and Eger (Ohøe in Czech), which are tributaries of the Elbe and so flow to the North Sea;  in the southeast are the Alps around Berchtesgaden;  in the southwest Bavaria has some miles of shore on Lake Constance (Bodensee), the lake through which the Rhine flows.

The rains that fall on the greater part of the Land however flow not to the North but to the Black Sea.   The Danube flows across…

My mother was Jean Marie Linderman Frederick Mancill. She was born in Dubuque, Iowa on 3 December 1927, and died on 9 March 2012 in Rosharon, Texas. 

My maternal grandmother was Phylis Adele Palen Linderman, and she was born in Bemedji, Minnesota. My maternal grandfather was Harry William Linderman born in Winona, Minnesota. My maternal grandmother was an artist and pianist. Her last painting was of some huge Sunflowers. She died from Hodgekin’s Disease in 1963 in Houston, Texas. My grandparents moved from Dubuque, Iowa to Indianapolis, Indiana to Houston, Texas in 1945. My grandfather had his own company, Linbar Inc. and he was a Combustion Engineer. 

My maternal great grandmother was Emma Elsie Claussen Palen who married Frank Joseph Palen of Caledonia, Minnesota.  The Palens emigrated from Bachlieden, Luxembourg in 1862. The Claussens emigrated from Hanover, Prussia, Germany in 1855.

The Lindermans emigrated from Obermoschel, Pfalz, Bayern, Germany in 1740 and helped to form these United States. My great grandmother, Gudrun Ivarra Lund emigrated from Namsos, Norway in 1896 to Ellis Island, New York, New York. She was only fifteen. She married Edward Francis Linderman in Winona, Minnesota.

I have over 9500 people in my RootsMagic database now. I have been working on my husband’s and my family history since 1987. I have been unable to decide how to pull it all together. There is so much data, that I felt overwhelmed and procrastinated on putting my books together. I think that I have finally decided that if I don’t get this history down on paper or in books, that I will be gone and no one else is surviving in our family that would know the history that I do. I have collected so much information over these years. I will be adding more as time allows.
