My mom had seven years of grade school; being a smart cookie, she was skipped ahead a grade.  However, in the 30’s in South Dakota, girls did not necessarily go to high school.  It’s said that if you educate a woman, you educate a family.  In my mom’s case, the lack of education only made it that much more important that her children receive an education.  So today, a year after she left us, I want to celebrate the achievements educate a family produced:

  • Kay Roseland                     Master of Business Administration
  • Bruce Roseland                 Master of Sociology
  • Jane Roseland                   Master of Chemistry
  • Aaron Roseland                Attorney at Law, Crane & Roseland
  • Adam Roseland                Student, Soldier, flying to Afghanistan July 3
  • Blake Campbell                 Medical Student, flying to Peru July 5

So a rousing standing ovation for Ida Lemler Roseland – educate a woman and you educate a family.  Thank you, mummy.
