This was the homestead where I grew up with 8 other sibling. My Parents where Charles & Marie Strooisma.

Marie is my Aunt, me and my wife live here now my parents live next door my grand parents where Charles and Marie Strooisma.

Our families were close friends. My parents met Charlie Strooisma when he was a meat cutter in the A&P grocery store in Whitewater. We used to visit at each others homes. I was pretty young, but I remember how excited Mrs Strooisma was when they got running water in the house. My sister Linda was good friends with Betty and they graduated High School together.
