ETHEL BEATRICE TEN HOVE was born to Thomas and Etta (Beers) Scotting on November 29, 1925, on a farm in Lorain Township of Nobles County, Minnesota. When she was four years old her mother died and her father married his wife’s sister, Margaret, and they lived on farms near Lake Wilson and Reading, Minnesota. Upon completion of her education, she worked for various families in the area. Ethel married Henry Van Veldhuizen and lived in Boyden, Iowa; to this union they had two sons, Richard and Alan. Henry died in 1953 from ataxia. In December of 1954, Ethel married Joe Ten Hove. Along with farming, Ethel and Joe owned and operated Ten Hove Grocery in Woodstock, Minnesota for nine years. In 1992, Ethel and Joe moved to Pipestone, Minnesota. Joe preceded Ethel in death on July 23, 2011.
