Jennie Harper Ramberg was my grandmother. She died at 42 years old when my Dad, Donald D. Ramberg, was only 16 years old. My Dad passed away Dec. 3, 1986. He died at 62 years old. His oldest sister Dorothy Ramberg Mattes died several years ago, but they still have a sister, 90 years old living in Chippewa Falls, Wis. Her name is Nina Martinik. My Dad never talked much about my Grandmother, but I do know she had been quite ill for a number of years. I would love to know more about her and her family. Jennie has 7 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren any many great great grandchildren. She along with my Grandpa are buried in a rural cemetery in the township of Reseberg in Clark Co., Wisconsin.
