Emil Ehlert

I am the granddaughter of Emil Ehlert who owned the Sunshine Valley Cheese Factory in the Town of Reseburg.  Emil ran a small grocery store in the factory also & the family lived above. In the photo below, the two children on the steps are my father, Laird Ehlert & his sister Ardelle Ehlert. The picture is from 1930 judging by my father's age.  Brenda Ehlert Hackbarth
