14 . the fluthtaldt Independent, Saturday, March 9, 1974 Mrs. Elmer [Evelyn] De»n, Humboldt This week's Independent Homemaker interview was a delight. We were speaking to Mrs. Elmer Dean of Humboldt. She is the former Evelyn Marquardt, born and raised at Lyons, Neb. Mrs. Dean attended Weslyn College at Lincoln and after their marriage the Deans started farming in eastern Nebraska. The couple bought a farm in Grove Township in 1940 and farmed there for 30 years before their retirement three years ago. They are parents of one daughter, Phyllis, who taught commercial teaching before her marriage to Merlyn Rehder. The Renders live at Ha warden and are parents of one daughter, Teresa, 2V». The Deans are members of United Methodist Church where Evelyn is active in Dorcas Circle and United Methodist Women. She is also a member of Women's Improvement Club, Grove Township; Farm Bureau Women, Humboldt County Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, a sewing club and a potluck supper group. The Deans are the epitome of the retired couple. They definitely are enjoying retirement and don't seem to lack for projects. It would seem that they get their most enjoyment from giving to others. They have a large garden at their home and also garden on their farm, giving what they don't use themselves to relatives and friends. Evelyn likes sewing for her granddaughter and herself, crocheting and crafts of any kind. Together the Deans have refinished a number of pieces of furniture and have completely redecorated the interior of their home, plus painted the exterior. Mrs. Dean indicated that now that they were retired they would like to do more traveling. They have a boat and like to fish in Minnesota. We are printing more than our usual number of recipes, simply because they were all so appealing that we couldn't decide which ones to leave out. The latest thing these days is health cereal. For those of you who have taken a liking to it but feel that it is too expensive, Mrs. Dean has provided a recipe so you can prepare your own. We'd almost guarantee that your children will like it. Serve it with ; milk as breakfast cereal or let then! eat ft dry as a snack. Many of the ingredients can be bought in the bulk. The receipe makes five pounds at a cost of $2.32, according to Mrs. Dean. Compare that with the cost of a small package in a grocery store! She also includes a variety of recipes that range from jam to a punch recipe. You'll have fun trying new recipes this week!
