1958 to present
Growing up and returning to Schaller
I was born in Storm Lake, Iowa April 16, 1958. My mother was raised and graduated from high school in Schaller, Iowa. She was born Sharalyn kay Krick, born around 1938, to Roy and Anna Krick, my grandparents, now deceased. They lived across the street from Broder's DX gas station. Thelma Whitkinack (spp?) lived across the street the other direction. Kitty corner was the Red Rooster Cafe. Grandpa worked at the Post Office in Schaller and Grandma at Andy's Cafe downtown. Grandpa was a Hamm radio man who built his own gear and repaired TV's and Radio's out of his basement. Mom has two younger sisters, Marilyn (Richard)Auen who lives in Denison and Karen (Dan) Schmidt lives in Cherokee. During summers and on holidays we would come down from Minnesota to visit. I have such fond memories of the visits. I remember Dr. Velma Boston stitched up a cut on my sister's face one night after she fell when we were practicing for the Popcorn Days parade the next day. We won first place. I think I was 9 or 10 years old. Grandma Anna died last summer and is buried next to Grandpa Roy at the Schaller cemetery out past the edge of town. Nowadays Mom lives up here in Fargo, North Dakota. My wife and two daughters and I live on the Minnesota side about 13 miles east of Fargo. When we do get back down to Iowa, which is not often, I take a drive through Schaller just to remember.

1900, September 20
Birth of Frederick Paul Schraeder
My father Frederick Paul Schraeder was born in Schaller, Iowa on September 20, 1900. His parents were Elizabetha J. Schraeder , nee Fiedler, and His Father was John Frederick Schraeder. I noticed that there are some Fiedler's listed in the cemetery there in Schaller ( catholic) I believe they are my Great Grandparents, John Fiedler Born 1838, Died 1918 and Margaretha Fiedler Born 1837, Died 1934 . My Dad was always proud of his Iowa roots. and always cheered on the Hawkeyes especially when they played Wisconsin when I was young. He settled in Wisconsin after marrying my mother and loved to hunt and fish. He was a master Machinist, now a dying breed in the age of computers. At one time in his life he made fuselages for airplanes in Milwaukee for Solar Aircraft. The government inspectors used to marvel at the close tolerances and how good he was at getting the steel in specification tolerances. He had two children Frederick Thomas and Barbara Louise. He died September 30, 1985 in Bemidji, Minnesota. He is buried in the Catholic cemetery there. His wife was Frances (nee Rusinek) Schraeder and is buried in the Catholic cemetery in Elcho, Wisconsin. They lived at Post Lake in Elcho, Wisconsin where they owned a resort and tavern. That is where I grew up and graduated from High School. Dad loved to laugh and Red Skelton was one of his favorite comedians.
