Notes for Elizabeth Della (Libby) SMITH
The memories I have of our home life are happy ones indeed. We were, and still are, a very close knit family.During our school years, we moved to several different Saskatchewan towns. This was because Dad was a grain buyer. He would build up the grain business in one town, only to be sent on to another to do the same thing. All this during the "Dirty Thirties" when the dust and the tumbleweeed were everyday occurences.People were always welcome in our home and we all knew we could bring our friends home for meals, meetings or just a friendly visit. Mother never knew whether she would be feeding ten or twenty and never seemed to mind.Both dad and mom were very fond of young people and did a lot of work with young folk. Dad loved curling, hockey, fishing and baseball - in fact - all sports. In his earlier years he played ball and then in later years he used to umpire. Mother was a C.G.I.T. leader, directed plays, recited at concerts and chaired many a meeting. She was a beautiful sewer and used to keep the old treadle machine humming till the wee small hours of the morning. Both mother and dad belonged to numerous clubs and outdid themselves serving each community in which we lived.In later years, they loved to visit each family and spil the grandchildren and needless to say, the grandchildren loved to be with them. We were very fortunate to have a wonderful mother and father - God bless and keep them in His tender care. - Written by Mildred Stanton/Gwynn for the Hushagen Family Reunion held at the Lutheran Church Camp in Sylvan Lake, AB on the July 4 weekend in 1980.
