a. Note:   HENRY AND MARY MAY HAVE HAD 10 CHILDREN Mary Sabers was born on September 7,1878 on the Sabers Family Farm near New Vienna, Iowa. She was a daughter of Henry and Mary (Roling) Sabers. She married Joseph "Henry" Von Lehmden on January 19, 1896 at St. Boniface Church, New Vienna, Iowa. Mary belonged to the brown-haired, blue eyed portion of her large family. At 5' 5" she did not retain the svelte figure (118 pounds) of her wedding day. Although her formal education was limited, she was creative and hard working. She developed many skills--good parenting, cooking, baking, sewing. She made most of the clothing for the family, including fancy dresses with endless lace and ruffles for First Communion and Confirmation. For a number of years she provided living accommodations for the teachers in the nearby one room rural school. She was widowed at 42, and when her son Corneil and wife Eleanor took over the farm, she bought a house in New Vienna from Dr. Abelin and moved there with the five youngest of her eight children. Two had died in infancy. Fancywork- -crocheting, embroidery, hardanger- - was her diversion, and these she taught to her daughters. She was an avid card player and had a chest filled with prizes, proving that she was good competition. A devout Catholic, she supervised family morning and night prayers. Prayers before and after each meal were routine. She drove her Lafayette well into her eighties, eliciting a"move over, Grandma is coming" from the Domeyer grandchildren. She did not adjust well to her final three months which she spent at Good Neighbor Home in Manchester, Iowa, where she regularly wheeled residents to the dining room until January 8, 1966, when she died unexpectedly and suddenly, alone, at 87 years of age. Mary and along her husband, Joseph "Henry" Von Lehmden were buried in the family lots in St. Boniface Cemetery at New Vienna, Iowa.
