Freda (Fochtman) Cornell will celebrate her 82 birthday on June 29. In this photograph, she is standing in the back row surrounded by all her immediate family members. Her now belated parents Norbert and Martha (Hillegass) Fochtman were celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary in 1957 when the photograph was taken of their family at their home in Kegg. Pictured are, front, from left, Velma Fochtman, Norbert Fochtman, Gary Fochtman, and Martha Fochtman; middle: Rose Fochtman; and back: Gertrude “Pauline” Fochtman, Freda Fochtman, Douglas Fochtman, Clyde “Cookie” Fochtman. The photograph was submitted by Thomas and Christina M. Turner.
