My mother was born Walburga Drexler in Germany in 1931. She grew up during the Great Depression, worse in Germany than here in the states. Every Christmas her only present was a very necessary new pair of boots, and yet she couldn't wait to open her gift. During World War II, she lost a brother at the battle of Stalingrad, and was only allowed to achieve an eighth-grade education. She immigrated to the United States in 1951. She met my father, Rudolph Kreutzer, in 1952. They married in 1953. She is now the mother of five kids, 15 grandkids and one great-grandchild, with another on the way. Because of her childhood experiences, she developed tremendous character, which we all admire today. She always worked hard, learning to speak English, becoming a citizen, a professional seamstress, and bringing up five children. She has been a wonderful, loving and caring mother, who always welcomes guests into her house. She turns 80 on May 2, is very upbeat and very busy taking care of my dad. She is a true hero to all of her family. - Don Kreutzer, Galloway Township
