Marie was born on a train when her family was going from Nebraska to Michigan to harvest or process sugar beets. The train company offered them a free lifetime pass for Marie but the parents didn't understand and declined the offer.

When Peter L. Manaige died in 1933, in the the middle of the great depression, he left a widow and three young daughters. Kay was 4 1/2, Norma was 2 1/2 and Shirley was 1 1/2. Marie was teaching in one-room schoolhouses during the school year and cooking at dude ranches in the summer. She couldn't care for all three girls so Peter's sisters, Dorothy Ripley and Gertrude Gillin adopted Norma and Kay respectively, Shirley always called Norma "Rip" - from Ripley.

I remember Gertrude well. She was a jolly blue-haired lady that could tell dirty jokes for hours. It must have rubbed off on Kay as she was also hilarious and we would laugh until we cried when Kay, Norma and mom (Shirley) got together. Aunt Gertrude and Aunt Hazel lived together. Hazel was Leo/Barney's widow, Gertrude's sister-in-law.

Peter worked as a government trapper and delivered mail. There is a location called Manaige Spring Hill in Montana near where Peter and Marie lived.
