I was born September 18, 1916 in Pulaski, Iowa. My parents were Joseph and Louise Stevig. We moved to Gridley when I was 16 years old. I married George Raymond Witzig on February 7, 1934. We had five children. Our son Raymond George was killed on May 6, 1968 in action in Viet Nam. My husband is deceased. I also have 11 grandchildren; 17 great grandchildren and one great great grandchild. At his birth, Ben Wettstein (2005) became the start of the fifth generation in our family.
