Minnick Funeral Home in Wisner is assisting the family.

Florence passed away on Saturday, February 23, 2019 at Pathfinder Place in Fremont, NE.

Florence Emma Breitkreutz was born on February 14, 1927, at the family farm northwest of Howells, Nebraska, to August and Rose (Zastera) Christ. Florence attended rural school District 29 and graduated from Howells High School in 1944. She began teaching at rural schools in the Clarkson and Howells area at the age of 17 and renewed her teaching certificate at Midland Lutheran College in Fremont. She continued teaching in Stanton and Cuming counties until 1960.

She met Duane Breitkreutz in 1945 at a dance at the Howells Ballroom. They were married on August 2, 1948, in North Platte, Nebraska. Duane and Florence’s marriage of 70 years was blessed with sons Tom and Ken and daughters Nancy, Anne and Carolyn. Adding to their blessings were grandchildren Katie, Kristin (Ben), Zachary (Katie), Paige, Westin, Tilden, and Sutton.

Florence enjoyed polka music, dancing, playing cards, and spending time with family and friends. She was an avid gardener and canned everything that can be canned. She was a great cook. If you ever tasted one of her pies, you already know that. She was a devoted farmwife—she could gather the eggs, milk the cows, sort the hogs, transport the kids to and from school, feed a crew of 20 with her famous fried chicken, wash clothes, then milk the cows again, all before 6 pm. In her “spare” time, she was an active member of St Joseph’s Catholic Church and the Ladies Guild.

Grateful for having shared her life are her husband Duane, sons Tom (Mary), Ken (Karen), daughters Nancy (Mark Wacker), Anne (Roger Nottleman), and Carolyn (Nathan Dixon); sister Anna Mae Beran; sisters-in-law Burdean Christ, Eileen Breitkreutz, Evelyn (Richard) Smith, Sidonia Breitkreutz, Rita (Larry) Clark and Sharon Lehman; and brother-in-law Gerald Priest.

She was preceded in death by her parents; daughter Janet Marie; and brothers Doran (Lola) Christ and Harold Christ.

Family and friends you have my deepest sympathy. This is a difficult time for most. There are basic things that can help anyone get through the pain no matter what age, gender or religious beliefs. Many have been helped with the twelve basics or just a few. You can go to jw.org and get the basics with no cost ever. See the article “Help for those who grieve “ in the magazine section. Anyone can get help and comfort.
