- Date Created:
- Mrs. Putzke was a homeless woman who lived in a vacant hotel building with her children in the 1930s. The Beisswenger family took her in and she remained on their farm for 35 years. Her two daughters lived in the home as hired help and Mrs. Putzke lived in the farm sheds, peeling potatoes, topping vegetables, and preparing berries and produce. As poor as people were in the 1930s, many extended charity and generosity to people such as her.
