A LOVE STORY

Ralph and Margaret Erts have been married since August 1, 1959. Ralph may have never met Margaret if he hadn’t given up his church to take a job at the Insurance Company where Margaret was working. He may never have gone back either without Margaret’s support and influence.
Ralph was on the road during the week, traveling the Eastern Nebraska region, as a Safety Engineer. On Friday’s he would come into the office to fill out his expense reports. He would go 3 desks over to Margaret’s desk to borrow her adding machine, telling her the girl next to him didn’t have one. Margaret says she did. The first time he asked her out was to the Aksarben Rodeo. He got turned down as she already had plans to go that same night with someone else, her 4 year old nephew. Ralph did get a yes for the movies and he took her to the Union Station for a bite to eat after. There she politely listened while he explained to her the inner workings of a pipe organ. He was grateful when she agreed to go out with him again!
After a 14 month courtship, Ralph took Margaret to Cascio’s for dinner and wine, then to Peony Park to dance. In the middle of a song, while they were dancing, Ralph asked Margaret to marry him. Margaret responded, “Ralph are you drunk?” Ralph said he never got a definitive answer, but they started planning a wedding. The Friday night before they wed Margaret asked him if they should go through with it. They went in to a bar to talk and after a few beers she agreed to marry him! So, one might say Ralph had some liquid courage to propose and Margaret needed some liquid courage to say yes!
Margaret said that the marriage worked out pretty well, she said yes and never looked back! She quit working when they started their family together, and then she returned after the girls were raised helping people file for insurance as an employee of a local hospital.
Ralph had been a Methodist minister prior to meeting Margaret. He had different jobs over the years, but one day he asked Margaret and his girls what they thought of him returning to the ministry. He got supportive answers from all 3. He credits Margaret for making that happen and is glad for it as he felt he had a lot to give to a congregation again.
That is their story, and they are sticking to it!

Long Time Friends- At it Again!

These two are something! Betty wanted to drive in the Stock Car races as a young girl, but wasn’t allowed so she tried out for the Roller Derby team instead. Georgia was a lady wrestler and was featured in the Iowa magazine in 1954. The two met in the 50’s at Platso Italiano, working, and often followed each other from venue to venue over the years. Their kids played baseball together. The families boated together. Betty taught Georgia to drive and lent Georgia her car before she left on a vacation, so Georgia would be able to get to work while she was gone. That’s the kind of friends they were! But, as often happens, moves occurred and visits became less frequent, but they were never completely out of touch. Communications picked up frequency after the loss of their husbands. Then Betty got sick and made a move back to Omaha and moved into Roxbury Park. She was telling Georgia how much she liked it and Georgia was finding it harder to manage things on her own at home so she decided to follow Betty and took an apartment to call home also, along with her dog Sammy.
These two are like peas in a pod, have never had an argument, and share custody of Sammy. They are happy to be together living in the same Community, but are grateful for the new friends they have made and love the staff. Every night after supper you will find a noisy group of friends playing games in the Pub.
