Christina Ann Huber Slowey is my great grandmother.  Her page can be found here.

Christina Ann Huber was born on 30 Sep 1895 in Yankton, Yankton Co., South Dakota.  She was baptized on 20 Oct 1895 at St. Columba Parish in Yankton, Yankton Co., South Dakota.  She is the second of six children born to Joseph E. and Emma T. (Rothmeyer) Huber. In 1914 Anna received her teaching certificate from Yankton College and worked as a Rural Schoolteacher in Yankton, South Dakota.  She continued working as a schoolteacher and lived with her parents and siblings in Yankton Co., South Dakota until 1917 when she married Thomas Patrick Slowey.

Anna and Tom were married on 17 Apr 1917 in Yankton, Yankton, South Dakota.  Tom is the son of John Charles and Theresa (Burns) Slowey. They remained in Yankton Co., South Dakota - in Mayfield until 1932, then Utica until 1944 when they ultimately settled down at 812 Douglas Avenue in Yankton.

The couple had six children: Elinor, Vernon G. ("Bud"), Claire Maxine, Lois, Rita, and Richard Raymond ("Dickie").

Tom passed away in 1963. Anna lived in Yankton until she died from cerebral thrombosis due to cerebral arteriosclerosis on 28 Nov 1982 at the age of 87 at Sacred Heart Hospital.  She is buried at Sigel Cemetery in Yankton.
