(Reminder: Joseph Sand was the eldest child of Mike Sand and Louisa Rausch Sand; he was grandma's brother who moved to Saskatchewan and never came back--or, Fr Lewans' grandpa, ok?).
So how, precisely, does Christa connect? Joe and Antonia's daughter, Agnes, had a daughter named Brenda, who is Christa's mom, see?
Why YES, thanks for asking. She did send pics ☺!
Here's Joe and Antonia on their 50th wedding anniversary in 1958,
with three of their four grown kids--Mary, Mike and Agnes.
The fourth, Erwin, who was adopted, evidently couldn't make it home for the shindig.
We have seen this photo b4--that's Mary and Peter Lewans, Mike and Rosa Sand and Wilfred and Agnes Grubbe with the cheery celebrants.
(Man, what a Sand trait, huh? Joe didn't smile any more than Grandma did!)
So, this is Wilfred and Agnes Grubbe family at "David's wedding" in 1963. They are David, Brenda, Anita, Rosemary, Phyllis, Lawrence and Edward behind Wilf and Agnes.
THANKS for this Christa. I'm thrilled you found us!
