General Notes: March 11, 1998
This is the story of the Spanish Flu Epidemic as told to me by my mother, Wilma Doerr who was born March 5, 1900
Wilma was born and raised on a small farm outside Union, Mo. On her 17th birthday, she came into Union and worked for a large shoe factory. She may have caught the flu at the shoe factory, but at the same time, a very serious type of measles was also present. My Mother came down with the flu and measles at the same time.
She was staying with an older sister (Hallie) in Union. Since he was the one and only doctor, Dr. Edward Stierberger was really stretched thin by all the illness. There was nothing he could do in the way of medicine. The sister applied cold, wet sheets to her entire body, night and day and the good doctor came by 3 or 4 times a day to check on her and give further orders. For three nights in a row, he came and spent the night at my Mother's bedside. Since it had been days that he had been able to go to bed, he ordered my aunt to let him sleep an hour at a time and then to wake him up to check on his patient. He slept on a straight chair by the bed. My aunt had a small daughter (Irene) and Dr. Stierberger ordered the child out of the house. When my aunt said she had no one to keep her, the doctor said to take her to a neighbor and tell them to keep her.
Finally at the end of a long week, Wilma's fever broke and she began the road to recovery. When she was finally able to return to her shoe factory work, she went to Dr. Stierberger to start paying her bill. He asked how much she was making at her job which $2.00 or $3.00 per week. He told her to forget the bill as she needed it more than he. Wilma lived to be nearly 90 years.

MY LIFE:

I was told that when I was four in 1942 and my mother was pregnant with my brother Richard, we had to be removed from a flooded home in a row boat. It was near the Mississippi River near Foley, Missouri. My dad was a guard at the Lock and Dam during World War Two.

When my uncle who was in the Marine Corps came home from fighting the Japanese, he gave me a large red fire truck for my birthday. This was the same day he got married. One summer he let me use his carbine from the Marine Corps to kill snakes on my great-grandfathers farm.

I went to Immaculate Conception grade school. I was the teachers pet for all eight years because I always helped them. At the end of the school year, the nuns always gave me some gift. When I was in grade eight, I did their errands for them during school time and in the summer I would help them also.

After grade school, I was going to study to be a Catholic priest. My biggest mistake in my life was that I did not do it. God forgive me!

Then I went to St. Francis Borgia High School. No sports or anything after school because I had to ride the school bus and did not have a car. My last year at school, I was the artist for the school paper and year book.

When I became 16, (sophomore in school) I joined the National Guard (Heavy Mortar Company). Since I did not have a car, my sergeant would take me to the weekly meetings. In the summer we spent two weeks at an army base. We had training in riot control in case of a riot at the state prison. After I was 18 years old, I enlisted in the Navy but failed my physical. The Draft Board made me 4-F. I received an honorable discharge 8 years later.

My summers before I was 18, I spent walking or riding my bike around town and visiting the lady at the Draft Board and my great aunt, who was the secretary to the County School Superintendent. Also talked to the old men who spent their time sitting on the benches at the courthouse. Also spent time at the soda counters. Learned a lot from these people.

Had different jobs from 1956 to 2000. Run a bowling alley, 12 hours a day, 6 days a week. Ground up meat for a pot pie factory. Inventory control at a factory that made metal sewer pipes. St. Louis Police department telephone switchboard keeping track of beat policeman (before walkie-talkies) they used phones (call boxes) on street corners to call in once an hour. Counting money at a bank and working in the stockroom and printing department at the same bank. Pattern maker at a shoe factory. Inventory and Quality Control at a place that made wall paneling. Shipping-Receiving clerk at a shoe factory. Quality Control at a factory that made ring binders and office supplies.

Had to retire early in 2001 because the place where I worked moved to Mexico. Had to sell house and used the profit to buy a used mobile home. Over the years, four places that I worked at closed their doors. Over the years because of the closings, I had lost two homes, one mobile home and three cars.

I was fired for the following reasons:
#1- Fired because I had TB. (I did not have TB).
#2- Fired for asking for a raise in pay that I was promised.
#3- Fired for not talking to my ex wife. Both of us fired!


MY HOBBY:

Since 1985, I have been researching families that are related to me and my family. I started out with a little note book that my dad had written that had his siblings and uncles and aunts.

Then I went to a lot of cemeteries checking for relatives. Also wrote to every one in Germany that had my dad and mom's last name. After I got internet service in the 90's, I put what I had on a website. Some saw the website and sent me information from Germany, France, Netherlands and United States.

One day going to a cemetery, my son and I almost died when we were going down a hill (at bottom is Missouri River) and the brakes on the car did not work. I made a quick right turn and the car hit a ditch right at the cemetery that we were looking to check. After checking the cemetery and getting pulled out of the ditch, I drove the car 85 miles back home without brakes because it was Sunday and no repair shops were open. Found out later that the brake line broke and leaked fluid.

Now you can check on the internet for the same information that I risked my life to get. Makes it a lot easier.
