Obituary for Nora Griebel

NORA GRIEBEL was born to Herman and Marie (Lange) Appeldorn on November 1, 1910 on a farm near Germantown, Iowa. She was baptized in the Lutheran church in Germantown. When she was five years old, she moved with her parents to a farm in Grange Township of Pipestone County, Minnesota where she attended school in District 16. She was confirmed at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Pipestone. Upon completion of her education, she stayed at home and helped with the work there. On February 16, 1932, she was united in marriage to Clarence Griebel. Following their marriage, they lived and farmed in Grange Township. In 1944, their daughter Barbara was born. Barbara preceded them in death in 1948; and on August 30, 1976, Clarence died. After his death, Nora continued to live on the farm until 1985 when she moved into Pipestone.
