Events and organizationsEdit

  • Worst Storm Since 1888 Still Sweeping Over This Section. Railroads are nearly paralyzed and are running only a few local trains - - Nearly all of the trolley lines suspended and wires covered with snow and ice are down in all the Hudson cities -- Only a little milk and and coal delivered -- most of the streets impassable. Source: Hudson Observer, Monday, March 02, 1914
  • Glad Tjeneste. We cannot help but liken Glad Tjeneste to a branch of the visible church here on earth, the vine being Christ Jesus. Glad Tjeneste extends to our church on this Golden Anniversary our sincere wish that she may continue our good work under the guidance of Pastor J.H. Preus. On Monday Evening, September 5, 1910 a group of girls who had interested themselves in the work of the Scandanavian Evangelical Lutheran Trinity Church of Jersey City, met at the home of Mrs. Anna Skou, 119 Randolph Avenue, for the purpose of organizing a Junior Ladies' Aid Society at the suggestion of their Pastor, the late Rev. I.L.P. Dietrichson. The meetings were held at the homes of the members until completion of the church in 1922. The name, Glad Tjeneste, implies willing service. To visit the sick and those in need has been our aim. We also decorate the church on festive occassions and cooperate with Ladies' Aid in managing the Fall and Spring Sales. For the past 10 years, we have visited Egers Home for the Aged with a Thanksgiving basket. Recently Glad Tjeneste joined the Women's Missionary Federation.

MemoirsEdit

Maria (May) Elizabeth Winblad (1895-1987) as told to Susan Penny Van Deusen. Maria Elisabeth Winblad (1895-1987) told me that her mother was Salmine Pedersen, of Norway and her father was John Edward Winblad, of Sweden. She was born in New York City and when she was nine months old they moved to Jersey City and had a two family house built (1). In 1896 Jersey City was considered countrified, compared to lower Manhattan. There were fruit trees and dirt roads with horses and carriages. They had seven children and three lived beyond childhood. Anton was the oldest and Otto was the youngest. John (Eddie) Edward Winblad was a middle child and he died of pneumonia when grandma was four years old. One daughter died of whooping cough (pertussis). Eddie was buried in the Greenville section of Jersey City. Salmine Pedersen was the youngest child of her family and was two years old when her mother died. Her father was a baker and he never remarried after his wife died.

Memories about Maria WinbladEdit

  • Maria (May) Elizabeth Winblad (1895-1987) by Selma Louise Freudenberg (1921- ):

Otto came from Norway to live with Maria (his sister) when his parents died (Otto was not born in Norway). Otto could only speak Norwegian then. Maria did laundry to support the family. Maria could speak Norwegian and owned a Norwegian bible. Maria stayed behind when the family was either in Cuba or in Norway to collect the rent from Summit Avenue. It was a one family house that they rented. Maria said that she would not have married Arthur Oscar Freudenberg if she had gone with her parents. Source: Selma Louise Freudenberg, Oral Testimony, 1998

Maria (May) Elizabeth Winblad (1895-1987) by Thomas Patrick Norton II (1920- ):

    Maria Elizabeth Winblad (1895-1987) would ride her horse in Cuba. May had a friend caled Pedro in Cuba. Maria had an ovarian tumor removed while I was away during the war. Maria was visiting her brother Anton in California when Sally was hospitalized in Paramus with her depression. This was in 1953. Maria took care of Thomas Patrick Norton III and Judith Elizabeth Norton.

Maria (May) Elizabeth Winblad (1895-1987) by Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ):

    I remember when grandma fell and broke her hip. She was coming into my room and calling me to wake up, and she just collapsed. I always wondered if she had tripped. When I was a kid, the folded ironing board was leaning against the wall and started to fall toward me. She ran to grab it and it hit her in the eye and gave her a black eye. She would make the best desserts. I think she said once she worked in a kitchen professionally. Swedish meatballs, Harvard beets and apple pie were the dishes I remember the most. She never drove a car, she would take buses everywhere. She never had a home of her own and had to rely on the family to take care of her.

Source: Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ), Written Testimony, 1998

Maria (May) Elizabeth Winblad (1895-1987) by Judith Elizabeth Norton (1951- ):

    Maria Elizabeth Winblad (1895-1987) told me she had a horse named "Happy" in Cuba. Her family grew oranges on a plantation in Cuba. She never learned Spanish. It was her father's dream to run a plantation.  Eventually her father went to Cuba. Maria went later with her brother Otto and she was scared because she didn't know the language and no one met her at the port. She didn't know where to stay so someone there translated and they found a hotel. Maria said it was a very traumatic experience. Maria's mother was Norwegian and her father was Swedish. Maria could speak both languages and had a Norwegian bible. One member of grandma's family was a violinist and he played for the Kaiser. John Winblad, her father found the name "Naida" in a story book. Her favorite book was "Mama's Bank Account" which was made into a movie called "I Remember Mama". She worked as a cook at one time making salads at a restaraunt or diner, at another time she cooked meals in her house and brought them to people in their houses for money.

Maria (May) Elizabeth Winblad (1895-1987) by Selma Freudenberg:

    Around 1945 Oscar had us move into Ogden Avenue from Claremont Avenue to live with Marie Elizabeth Winblad, his estranged wife. Oscar was living at Summit Avenue with Edlycoe Klynman. We also had a choice to live on Palisade Avenue in a better neighborhood, the house was bigger but it was more run down. Ralph Freudenberg eventually bought the house from Oscar. No one ever talked about Oscar not living with us. When we moved in there were four oak chairs with hearts cut in the back. I had two (one damaged) and I gave them to Judy Elizabeth Norton in the 1980s. Helen Elizabeth Freudenberg and Naida Muriel Freudenberg got one each. Maria Elizabeth Winblad insisted they each get one. The wicker furniture in my shed was on the porch in that house. Helen got a beautiful chair from Oscar. It was a carved wooden chair with bow legs. Helen had it on Grace Street. Helen at one time lived above my father near Journal Square on Cottage Street. He owned a big piece of property that stretched from one street to the next. The lawyer took the property when he died.

Marie Elizabeth Winblad (1895-1987) by Edward Dahl:

    October 1986
    My Dear Selma - 

Received your letter. Many thanks for writing and remembering me. They just brought me word from the desk, that Naida [Freudenberg], and Pete [Van Deusen], will not be here to-day, as Naida is not feeling well. I have not seen Helen [Freudenberg], and Al [Brindley] for a while, as they are still down at the shore. I think Michael [Borland] is there. But she likes it down there anyway. So Richard [Arthur Norton] has gained 5 lbs., well he could use it, and I hope all is going well at his new job. Mama knows with you out in Paramus, it is not easy to get in. Maybe some time I could come and stay with you for a few days, as I do with Naida and Helen, if it could be arranged. The Lord keep you safe in Him. Keep praying, and trusting in Him always. your old mother [Maria Elizabeth Freudenberg] XXXXXXX Source: Maria Elizabeth Winblad (1895-1987), Original Letter, 1986

    August 02, 1979
    Dear Judy [Judith Elizabeth Norton]

How is my sweet to-day? Breakfast is over and now I must keep in touch with my loved ones. Right? It was so kind of Richard [Richard Arthur Norton] to bring Mama [Selma Louise Freudenberg] to see me. Hadn't seen him in a long time. Had a longing to see him, and then he came. It made me feel happy. And then I got to see Mama too. Tommy [Thomas Patrick Norton III] and Susan [Manson] when she comes to them for a visit. [I can] not remember when she was leaving. The weather is hot and humid, but I get out in the shade from 2 to 4 most days. There is always a breeze, some days more than others. Good to watch the folks go by. Many times I fall asleep. The lady in the kitchen gave me enclosed paper. Thought you might like to read it. Mr. Frank just celebrated his 90th birthday. After the residents had gone to bed on our floor they gave me a call to come up front. The aides had bought cake, and we sang happy birthday. There were 8 of us. he was so happy. We celebrated all those here who had birthdays in July over a week ago, in the big dining room. The one lady was 101, [she does] not have the strength to walk around. She's in a wheelchair all the time, told me she feels good, does not have an ache or a pain and her mind is very active. She goes well in her wheelchair. Will write again next week. God keep you all in his loving care. Grandma [Maria Elizabeth Freudenberg] XXXX Source: Maria Elizabeth Winblad (1895-1987), Original Letter, 1979

I hope and pray it won't be for long now, and we can have you home for keeps. if we hold fast to our faith, and as good soldiers endure that which is before us we shall gain the victory. A very blessed Christmas be yours. Mom.
