Transcribed biography of Steve and Pearl Wunder
Steve Wunder and Pearl Wunder and daughter Dorothy Cota. We came to Jackson Center in 1942. We bought the Ben Wood estate and farmed it. Our daughter attended Jackson Center School and graduated from there. We have 4 grand children, Leslie Jardine, a professor of nuclear science of Downers Grove, Illinois; Karen Sue Parrett of Valparaiso; Jerry and Roger of Michigan City. One great granddaughter of Downers Grove. We had our share at bad luck. Lost a hog house, granary and chicken coop in a fire, and a few years later we lost our home which burned to the ground. We rebuilt on the same location. Mrs. Wunder worked for McGills for 11 years. After staying home for 2 years, she went to work a Beatty Memorial Hospital in Westville and worked there for 12 years. We both retired and are enjoying ourselves. We celebrated our 50th anniversary September 27, 1974, with our family. Mr. Wunder was employed by Hunding Dairy for 22 years before we came here from Chicago. We think Jackson Center is the most beautiful place and hope to stay here for the rest of our time.
