Biography2002Zersen Memories

By Diane Kae Jones nee Zersen

DOB December 21, 1935

My father was Arnold Carl Zersen, my mother was Dolores Zehms. Arnold was the 5th son of a 5th son and the youngest son of Henry Carl Zersen of Gresham, Nebraska. I was born in Fort Dodge, Iowa on December 21, 1935. We lived in Manson, fourteen miles west of Fort Dodge. Mother taught school at Manson before I was born. We moved to Rapid City, South Dakota as my father was transferred there by Armour & Co. I was only 5 years old when my father passed away of pneumonia at 36 years of age in March 1941, just before Penicillin was discovered in September of that year. My father is buried in Gresham, Nebraska next to his parents.

My Uncle Ben Zersen, wife Sara and daughter Gloria lived in Sioux City, Iowa so mother and I moved to Morningside a suburb of Sioux City, Iowa in October of 1941. December 7th of that year we heard on the radio that our country was at war as Japan had bombed Pearl Harbor. My mother started crying and I asked what was wrong. She said she was worried about the difficult times ahead. I told her not to worry, as I would help take care of her.

My Uncle Ben would stop by to see us occasionally. He would bring me a jar of green olives, as he knew it was a big treat for me. I also remember him taking me to downtown Sioux City to go to Matinee movies when I was 6 ½ or 7 years old. After I was remarried, my husband Winson and I would go to Indiana each summer to visit his family. In 1977 or 1978 we drove back with 2 of our children and on the return trip to Seattle we stopped to see Uncle Ben and 2nd wife June in Lincoln, Nebraska. Uncle Joe in Julesburg, Colorado and daughter Phyllis. First cousin Don Zersen wife Ruth and daughter Doreen in Gresham. We also went to Lutheran Church cemetery to see headstones of grandparents (Henry and Emma) and of my father, Arnold. Then on to see Uncle Gil in Doniphan, Nebraska and his son Robert (Bud) and wife Marlene.

Another time on our way back from Arizona we stopped at Lodi, California to see Uncle Ben's daughter, Gloria as we hadn't seen each other since the 1940's. Her mother Sara was still alive and lived in Lodi also.

Uncle Ben had given me a couple of pictures of a Bill Zersen in a football uniform at college so I knew there were other Zersens out there. Later whenever we traveled I would look in the phone book for the Zersen name. So while in Chicago waiting for a plane I found the name of David Zersen in Itaska, Illinois and I called him. We drove to Itaska the next time we were in Chicago to meet David and wife Julie and family. Then later on Bill Zersen wrote to me and subsequently came with 2 of his children to see us in Sequim, Washington when he was visiting in Bellingham. So it has been exciting to find some new cousins and to learn more of the family history.
