NFH Month Celebration #19:
Today was a silver lining type of day. Sadly, yesterday our church lost one of its life long members, Donald Bork, after a long battle with Parkinson’s. The silver lining is that I discovered his widow’s maiden name is Krause, the surname of my MMM grandfather, Gustav Krause. I haven’t found a connection yet, but I’m still looking.
NFH Month Fun Fact #19:
The Krauses have strong genes. 7 of their 9 children lived past the age of 80, many past 90.
Have you ever found out anything about your family in the newspaper?
Does one branch (or more) of your family tree carry genes of longevity?
