  • Notes 
    • Recollections from family members solicited and compiled by Terese Schirmer Piccoli, organized and transcribed by Anne Marie Zellner:

      Mary Ag (“Sis” Schirmer) Schoenberger:

      She was the working aunt who lived with Grandma. I remember her courtship with Teddy and the fact that they would take a few of us in the rumble seat of their car for a ride, usually to Newark airport, where they would let us out to watch the planes while they stayed in the car -- to smooch -- until the time when Bill and Buddy (I think) snuck up behind them and scared them half to death!

      Fr. Martin Mager OSB (Joe Mager)

      Aunt Gert and Teddy Wolf lived in Maplewood which seemed to be idyllic.

      Louis “Buddy” Sieben:

      Aunt Gert married Teddy Wolf who was a diamond cutter and had lots of bucks. They bought a lovely house in Maplewood, had a new Chevy with a rumble seat and thought things couldn’t be better, but then the Depression came along and Ted lost his job and almost lost the house. Uncle Tom gave Ted a laborer’s job at the A&P “return” warehouse. Ted brought home scrap lumber from work, bought an old radial saw and made “flats” for the florists in the area. This was in the basement of his house and the noise of the saw was really deafening. I know, because I was his helper. He would pick me up on his way home from work. I would sleep over, then get dropped off in the morning. When Mary Lou was born, he had to stop the noise so he got a job at night parking cars at Olympic Park. However, Aunt Gert was afraid of being alone at night, so he continued to pick me up on the nights he worked. My compensation was that he taught me how to drive and then would let me drive in the mornings even before I had my license.

      Anne Marie (“Clockie” Schirmer) Cuff:

      Young lovers, or was that the movies? Only two children -- how did that happen?

      Claire (Wolf) Mindnich:

      Gertrude was the youngest of eleven children. She grew up with many mothers. She told me her sisters Mary and Theresa were like mothers to her. Mother was smart, witty, loving, kind and compassionate. When I was in third grade, eight years old during World War II, Mother went back to work. She made sure we were taken care of, so after school, Aunt Jotty would be there to watch us until Dad came home. Her whole life was her family, brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews. She was the best baker. Karen (Schirmer) Coon, her grandniece always tells us how our mother taught her to bake the best apple pie.

      When my parents were married, Uncle Martin was to marry them. The night before the wedding, Uncle Martin suffered a heart attack. Father Celestine married my parents June 18, 1930.

      When we were growing up she stressed the importance of Church and family. One day our church was having a picnic. I did not want to go; she stressed the importance of church activities. Well, I did go, but I remember protesting. I told her I’d be back in an hour and slammed the door. Well, needless to say, that’s where I met my husband of 45 years. Bill died last May 24, 2001.

      My mother’s father died when she was ten years old. When she was a child, she developed rheumatic fever which later on in her life caused her trouble. She was a loving mother and our best friend. She died Nov. 21, 1979 at the age of 74.
