Nursing Home Resident Bios

 

*Postville Good Samaritan Home
The "Resident of the Month" column featured residents at the Postville Good Samaritan home. The articles ran in the Postville Herald starting in November 1972. Prior to entering the home, most of the residents had lived around the Postville vicinity in Allamakee county, or in bordering counties of Clayton & Fayette. Most of the biographies include a photo of the subject. All of the obituaries for 1972 thru 1975 for this home have now been posted.

*Misc. bios from other Nursing homes
Allamakee county residents also resided in nursing homes located in other counties. They will be posted when found.


The biographies were transcribed by Sharyl Ferrall for Allamakee co. IAGenWeb.
