Gertrude Mische
Gertrude Mische, 78, Glen Ullin, formerly of Hebron, died Tuesday, May 28 at the Marian Manor HealthCare Center in Glen Ullin.
Her funeral service was held at 10:30 a.m. Friday, May 31 at the St. John United Church of Christ Hebron. Pastor Theresa Heupel officiated.
Burial was in the St. John cemetery, Hebron.
Gertrude Valentine (Hintz) Mische was born February 14, 1924 to the Rev. Reinhold and Ida (Neuman) Hintz in Stoughton, Saskatchewan, Canada. She was the second oldest of six children.
As a child, she was educated in various communities in Manitoba as the family moved periodically due to her father's occupation as pastor.
When it came time for Gert to attend high school, she moved to Hebron to live with her grandmother, Mathilda Neuman and her aunt, Alina (Neuman) Stevenson.
Following high school she was educated at Wartburg College, Waverly, IA and upon completion, was assigned a teaching position in a country school for a number of years.
She married Henry Mische June 20, 1946 at Goodrich, ND. Following their marriage they farmed five and a half miles south of Hebron on the Mische family farm and raised five children. In 1988 Gert and Henry built a home in Hebron and moved into town.
Throughout her life she was very involved in raising her children and contributing her many talents to community organizations including the St. John's Guild and St. John's Choir. She offered tireless leadership to the Hebron Family 4-H Club where she inspired many young people to learn skills and develop interests that would improve their lives from that point on.
She was a member of the Happy Homemakers and the Hebron Historical and Art society. In addition to tending to what her children remember as the "largest garden anywhere", she grew beautiful flower gardens that many people would travel to the farm to see.
She was a self-learner and then taught others.
She taught art at the Hebron Public School as well as private lessons in her home. She became interested in the art of ceramics and opened her own shop in the basement of her farm home after learning many of the techniques involved with this skillful art.
She taught lessons and provided a new craft for the community to enjoy. She decided to advance her skills and fulfill another dream of becoming a doll artisan and joined the North Dakota Doll Artisans, which allowed her to attend many seminars where she perfected her painting skills for doll making.
She learned every facet of this art form - from molding doll body limbs to attaching wigs and finally painting the beautiful faces on each reproduction doll. She took great joy in creating something she so fondly admired as a child and giggled gleefully with all the other women who remembered these beautiful doll faces as children and provided "something new" to children who had never seen dollars like this before.
Her goal was to create a doll for each of her grandchildren and to have them look as much like the child as possible with correct hair coloring and eye color.
Gert Mische was a woman who never "frittered", as she used to say, away an hour of her life and made each hour count for something. She succeeded in instilling the love of art, music, dance, writing and reading in her children, hoping that they would "glom on" to at least one facet as a means of self expression.
Most importantly, she emphasized the necessity of reading the Bible and coming to know the Lord through his word. She made sure her family started with the mindset needed to get through the day and held devotional sessions at nearly every breakfast with her family. She had a lovely sense of humor that stayed with her even throughout her battle with Alzheimer's disease.
She continued to enjoy singing and listening to music to the very end of her life. It brought her joy ... as she brought joy to so many people in the sharing and teaching of her talents.
Imagine her now, busy in God's great choir and tending to all the details necessary for a wonderful reunion with her loved ones. Until we meet again sweet wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and niece.
She is survived by her husband Henry Mische, her children Jerome Mische of Hebron, Claudia (DJ) Meberg, Bismarck; James (Joy) Mische, Tioga; Marilyn (Tony) Olsen, Jamestown and Howard (Laura) Mische, Minneapolis.
Other survivors include a sister Miriam (Dick) Teal, Golden Vale, WA and a brother, Luther (Mary) Hintz, Santa Maria, CA. She is also survived by 13 grandchildren and two aunts, Alina Stevenson and Edna Harvey.
Gertrude was preceded in death by her parents, a sister Idalia and two brothers, Ernest and Harold.

Brother Gordon Barnard
Brother Gordon Barnard, OSB, 70, of Richardton died Saturday, November 16, 2002 in the Richardton Health Care Center from complications due to his rheumatoid arthritic condition. He had been strengthened with the Sacraments of the Dying.
Concelebrated Mass of Christian Burial was held Monday, November 18 at 10:30 a.m. at the Assumption Abbey Church in Richardton with burial in the Abbey Cemetery.
Gordon Barnard was born the son of Roland and Clara (Smith) Barnard October 7, 1932 in Mandan, ND and received his elementary education there. He attended Saint John’s High School in Collegeville, MN for one year but transferred to the Assumption Abbey High School in Richardton where he graduated in 1950. He was athletically gifted in many sports. While a student in the abbey school he was captain of the football, basketball and track teams.
Gordon entered Assumption Abbey in 1951 and professed vows as a Benedictine monk on July 11, 1952. Brother Gordon worked in the abbey all his years, mainly in the abbey’s print shop – an area in which he became a master printer and teacher of the art of printing to many others.
He was a careful and meticulous craftsman and no printing job came out of the Abbey press short of perfection.
Brother Gordon was also the abbey’s keeper of the bees; he learned this trade from his family in Mandan before joining the abbey. For nearly 50 years he saw to it that the tables of the monastic dining room were laden with good, sweet honey.
However, Brother Gordon’s most enduring and endearing "work" and witness as a monk was not as a printer or bee keeper but as one who gave a lived, Christ-like example of how to bear with much pain and suffering.
At an early age he was stricken with arthritis and in 1953 he was diagnosed with degenerative rheumatoid arthritis. The disease proved to be very degenerative and so it gradually spread to virtually every joint of his body.
Consequently he lived with the debilitating effects and pain of the disease very nearly 50 years.
Nonetheless, most of that time he continued to work full time in the print shop while dutifully fulfilling all the monastic obligations of prayer and other activities.
In addition, in recent years, he developed a ministry of reaching out to others with similar problems of incurable painful illness, counseling them and suggesting remedies to help ease the pain.
He is survived by his monastic brothers in the abbey and by his brothers Raphael, Mandan; Leo, Jacksonville, TX and sister Dolores Vyzralek, Bismarck.
He was preceded in death by his parents and one brother, Clement.
