Kunkle Feature: Tribute to women

Babe Fennell, 106, has been interviewed by TV and I doubt that there is any problem for giving her notice in the Review. She is a great South Dakota treasure, an example of the area's healthy environment.

In a country where quickie marriages and easy divorce are common, there remains a sturdy group of women residing on the prairie of Western South Dakota who live life as it should be lived.

Faith, pioneer spirit, strength, natural ability, work ethic, and loyalty all contribute to faithful marriages and long lives. While these qualities are found all over the country, South Dakota, it seems, has been a special example of all that is good about America.

No veteran …

I have not been in the military.

My father trained other soldiers, but he did not see front-line action. Dad did have an older brother who was buried with honors before I was born. My grandfather came to America when he was six because his father was getting the family out of Germany before war began. The years keep going way back, yet still seem to be connected to war in one way or another.

Thirty years after the fact, I discovered that another uncle had seen action as a paratrooper. He still will not speak of those times. My mother’s brother was a military chaplain.
