Zimbelman, 91, of Oakes, N.D., passed away December 10, 2012 at the Good Samaritan Society, Oakes, N.D. Rachel Christine was born December 24, 1920 to James and Emma (Lind- gren) McCloskey. She attended school in Oakes, graduating from Oakes High School in 1938. Rachel moved to St. Paul, Minn. in the fall of 1938, and was - employed at the Montgomery Ward Co., Fanny Farmers Candy Co., and was also a housekeeper. Rachel married William Pranke on October 24, 1942 in St. Paul. Together they had two sons, Gary and Jeff. In the spring of 1944, they moved to Alam- eda, Calif. In 1945, Rachel returned to Oakes. Over the years, she worked at the Red Owl Store, the JC Penney Store, and First National Bank. She was united in marriage to Allisen Zimbelman on February 24, 1968. Allisen passed away on May 25, 2007. Rachel continued to make her hote in Oakes, and in November of 2011 she became a resident of the Good Szmaritan Society. Rachel was an active member of the First Presbyterian Church, serving as Church Treasurer and Clerk of Session and Elders. She was also active in the Presbyterian Women's Association, and held all the offices at one time or another, including the treasurer for over 20 years. She is survived by two sons, Gary Pranke, Winters, Calif. and Jeff Pranke, Phoenix, Ariz.; two step-children, Patti (Gene) Kraft, Rapid City, S.D. and Charlotte (Dennis) Kenfield, Chester, Mont.; sisters, Geraldine (Holmes) Cunninam, Newnan, Ga. and Arlene Meehl, Oakes, N.D.; brothers, Ar- len (Shirley) McCloskey, Butte, Mont. and Curtis (Patti) McCloskey, Oakes, N.D.; eleven grandchildren; and several great-grandchildren; step-grand- children; and step-great-grandchildren.

Be- cause her mother was an immigrant and not well versed in English, Doris learned to be very responsible at an early age doing most of the shopping, paying bills, reading to her mother, etc. Her whole life was spent on so many challenges that she would encounter. The Buland clan were all carpenters by trade and when the depression hit, the three brothers and their families moved to California to get work. Doris had to adjust to going to a big high school for her Jr. and Sr. years and graduated (with honors I think) from Hollywood High School in 1939. The Buland clan all moved back to Oakes where they owned their homes and Doris worked for North American Creameries until she saved enough money to go to business school in Minneapolis studying medical stenogra- phy. She then worked for the __ Children's Hospital (I think it may have been Gillette) until she met the love of her life, Byron Davenport. By- ron had a large family and they took Doris in and made her part of the family. Doris, Byron and son, David, moved to Moorhead, Minn. in the 50's and By- ron passed away at a very early age leaving Doris to be the chief breadwinner and caretaker for David. She later married Verner Glenn Dill and helped raise his two boys and one daughter at LaMoure, N.D. After the children were grown, she and Glenn moved to California where Doris has remained ever since. During these years, she always had a full time job, took care of her mother-in-law, was very active in the Presbyterian Church and the PEO Chapter of both Walnut Creek and Napa and still made time to travel and play golf with Glenn. Her greatest joy was being able to travel to Norway two times to visit relatives and see the birth places of both of her parents. She is survived by her son, David; two granddaughters, Chelsey and Re- mey; one step-daughter, Martha and cousins both in the United States and Norway. She was preceded in death by her parents, her older brother, Aflo, and her infant son Dean.

Many Christmas traditions are older than some celebrants might think. The tradition of lighting up a Christmas tree, for example, dates back to the days before Christmas lights. Before electric-powered twinkle lights were invented and even before electricity was discovered, people used actual candles to adorn the Christmas tree. As one can imagine, having an open flame next to a dried-out tree made for some fast fires. That's why it was customary to keep a bucket of water next to the tree:as well. As if fire wasn't enouglL the tinsel used to decorate trees was made from strips of silver and even lead -- something that is now known to be a health hazard to adults and children alike. Although we've come a long way from candles and lead, trees that are overly dry paired with lights that have frayed wires can just as eas- ily lead to fires. Plus, plastic tinsel can be a choking hazard for children and pets. One Christmas staple that has lost its status as a safety hazard is the poinsettia plant. Poinsettias are a tropical plant that have become a fix- ture during the Christmas season. It has long been thought that poinsettias are poisonous to people and animals. While there is some toxicity to the plant, it would require the ingestion of hundreds of leaves to get a toxic dose of a plant's poison. Ingestion may sim- ply cause a case of vomiting or diar- rhea instead. But poinsettia leaves are said to have an unpleasant taste, so one bite and most children and animals will probably turn away. Perhaps one of the biggest hazards come Christmas -- both then and now -- is not having enough turkey or eggnog to go around for holiday guests! 00Nursery News00 Evorl00 EhzaI:,d'Ula McCain and Jaime Rosonke of es long.

Collections for Hurricane Sandy victins By Sara ]Veer Super Storm Sandy was a widely publicized event that took our whole nation captive. Many of us have been moved to compassion and have cho- sen to do something to help those affected by the extreme weather that Sandy produced. After being shown pictures of the destruction that Sandy brought, our 5th and 6th graders were very con- cerned. They wanted to know if there was anything that could be done to help those people who were left "without". After some digging we discovered that there were a number of shelters taking donations. The 5th and 6th graders volunteered their time; be- fore school, recess, and afterschool. They organized, advertised, collect- ed donations of money and supplies, and packed boxes. By the time the December 4th deadline came around our elementary school volunteers had collected over $200 in donations and packed a mountain of boxes ! Thank you for showing such over- whelming support for those in need. Thank you for supporting our stu- dents who did an outstanding job organizing and implementing the undertaking. Should you see a 5th or 6th grade volunteer, thank them for thdir compassion, motivation, and willingness to give of themselves to help others.

It began during a momentary quiet period on Christmas Eve when some German soMiers sang Christmas carols and hem up candles from their trenches. Although distrus(fal of the "barbarian" Germans, British soldiers joined in, a few : even approaching enemy soldiers in "no man's land", sharing cigarettes, personal photographs and handshakes. The High Command on both sMes was livM, issuing stern orders against fraternization with the enemy. Despite the official orders, some officers relaxed the rules, seeing the truce as a chance to improve morale and re- supply their trenches. The 1914 "Christmas Truce" lasted i;: through Christmas Day, after which hostilities and brutal killing quickly resumed. Our annual observance of the birth of Jesus usually comes amid hostilities in the worM, our own nation and in many peoples' hearts. May the child born in Bethlehem's manger lead people of all nations to seek, "Peace on : earth, good will towards all people" this year and every Christmas. "For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given, and : His name shall be called... Prince of Peace." (Isaiah 9:6.7) Rev Bob Tasler j Wednesday - 6:45 p.m. Waumba Land & Route 315  : STS.
