Hilda NiemiX

Born: May, 1903

My great-grandma, Hilda Niemi, was born in May 1903, and she died in July 1992. Her husband died at a young age when she was pregnant, and he left her with seven children to take care of. Back then there was no financial help available. They had to rely on cows for meat and milk. They had to grow their own vegetables and make wood to heat the house. Hilda loved people and company. Because of her, there are hundreds of us today. She taught us that sometimes we have to think of others and help people.
