Photo 1-AMA-9


This is most definitely our family farm at 8935 Marion Road SE that we just sold as of today. My parents bought it from the Bear family in approximately 1957. The barn and a windmill were on the property. My parents built the house and we moved there in 1959. My parents lived there until Dad died in 2011 and Mom moved to Turner Retirement Homes in September 2012. It has been rented to the Lulay family for the past 8 years, and now purchased by Jon Remy as of 8/19/20.

I neglected to mention that my parents who owned this property since 1957 were Earl and Betty Lyda.

Hello Nancy,

Thank you for the wonderful story about your family and home. I have pinned the location on the map does this look correct?
