Elizabeth Rose Nehring was born December 4, 1919 on a farm in South Dakota to Tefel and Martha (Radack) Berndt.
“I went to a country school near the farm and attended high school in Avon, South Dakota. After high school, there was no employment in that area. A friend who I went to grade school with was going to Wisconsin and he had a job in Kenosha. I had a cousin in Wisconsin, so my father decided I could go to Wisconsin to visit my cousin. I stayed with my cousin and got a job, then I met Harold and we decided to get married. Harold married me on February 25, 1941 in Harrington, Nebraska, and brought me to Minnesota Junction and I have been living here for 66 years. We had two children, Charles (Eileen) Nehring, Rhinelander, Wisconsin and Barbara (James) Wegner, Horicon, Wisconsin. Chuck and Eileen have two sons, Kevin Nehring of Wisconsin and Douglas (Tanya Drexler) Nehring of Rhinelander, Wisconsin. Barb and Jim have two sons, Joshua Wegner of Waukesha, Wisconsin, and Bradley (Melissa) Wegner of Madison, Wisconsin. Kevin has 3 children Stacy, Tyler, and Molly Nehring of Flower Mound, Texas.”
Elizabeth was preceded in death by her parents, son, Charles in 1982, husband, Harold in 1974, sister, Rose Nehring and brother Kenneth Berndt.
Elizabeth worked as a nursing assistant at St. Joseph Hospital, Beaver Dam, Clearview Nursing Home, Juneau, and Lakeview Nursing Home, Beaver Dam. After retirement, she then worked for Margaret Ihrke home care until 1999. She was a member of First Presbyterian Church in Horicon. She was a wonderful, loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend and she will live on in our hearts forever.
Memorials will be dedicated for scholarship funds that will be set up in Elizabeth”s name for students entering the nursing fields. The Murray Funeral Home in Horicon is serving the family. Online condolences may be made on our website at www.MurrayFH.com.
