Jeannine Ruth (Ham) Erickson was born December 11, 1928, to Ivan and Ruth (Kendall) Ham southeast of Sutton, Nebraska in Fillmore County.
Jeannine and brother Kendall started school in the first grade with their mother, Ruth as their teacher. After the first grade, Jeannine attended rural school Districts 89 and 64 southeast of Sutton in Fillmore County. She completed her elementary education in Saronville, Nebraska's District 73. After graduating from Sutton High School in 1946, she taught south of Sutton, District 20 for one year.
On June 1, 1947, she was united in marriage to Wayne Wenzell Erickson. Her wedding gown was made by her mother Ruth from the silk fabric that Wayne sent from Japan while in the military. After the wedding, they moved to a farm northwest of Sutton where they lived until 1975. At that time, they moved into their new home in Sutton. To this union, three children were born, Gerald (Jerry), Sherry, and Kevin.
Jeannine was baptized and confirmed in the Saronville Methodist Church. She held several offices in the Methodist Women's Group and taught Bible and Sunday School for several years. She attended the Saronville Methodist Church until its closing in 1992, at which time the family joined the Sutton Federated Church.
Jeannine worked various jobs during her lifetime. She was employed at the Sutton Community Home, Pioneer Seed Plant, and Rolfes's Seed Company.
Jeannine loved playing bridge and always enjoyed her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She liked nothing more than having her whole family together.
