Upper DM Moinei Thursday, June 24, 1965 Gets Over 100 Cards In Hospital On Birthday FENTON - Mrs. Maynard Nemitfc, a patient at tlio Tumor Nursing Homo in Armstrong recovering from stroke and diabetes complications, received over 100 greeting cards and Drifts for her birthday June 12. Her husband, operator of a radio repair shop In Fenton, said "The cards were from people all over the area, and really cheered her up." Mrs. Nemitz was first hospitalized last October at Estherville and then was a patient at University Hospitals in Iowa City. She was moved to Armstrong late in November, and was glad to be back where home town friends could visit her. She had been making progress in recovering use of her body, and hopes were rising that she would return to Fenton, when a bout with the Que in May and pneumonia following returned her to Iowa City for three weeks. She was released to go to the Armstrong nursing home the week before her birthday, and was really welcomed back .by the flood of mall. Mrs. Nemitz had long wanted to take "just one plane ride", but this desire was fulfilled in an unexpected way. The two trips to Iowa City were made by air ambulance, but she remembers only the first one. Before her birthday, she had received nearly 600 cards and letters wishing her recovery. All were answered by Mr. Nemitz, and each one was deeply appreciated. Nemitz has compiled some what of a record in the eyes of friends in Fenton. During the many weeks of his wife's stay at the nursing home, he has only missed visiting her two days in March, when Highway 44 was completely blocked by snow during the blizzards. -,.:. - o - — Barry Schmidt of Sigourney, Iowa spent last week with his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Olaf Norland, while his parents Mr. and Mrs. Dennis Schmidt were vacationing in Texas.
