  • First-hand information. Entered by Wilma Huffman at registration.

Wilma Darlene Huffman, was born June 8, 1934, to Raleigh Wesley Huffman and Leona Silva Arb Huffman. The event took place on the original homestead owned by her great grandparents, John Warren and Louisa Jane Taylor Huffman, near Freeport, Harper County, Kansas

Darlene is the names she has gone by since birth. She is the 3rd of 5 children born to this family. Dolores Winifred, b 8-13-1924 ; Doyle Ivan, b. 6-18-1926; Darlene; Leota Faye, b.1-1-1934; Cecil Clay, b. 9-16-1940.

The first years of Darlene's school years started in the Freeport Grade School, Freeport, Ks, which was only 2 miles from the farm. She was graduated from Hazelton High School in Barber County, at the age of 17. Other advanced education class were pertaining to her work, which was business and computer classes at Barton County Community College, Great Bend, Kansas

Marriage to her school sweetheart, Theodore Dean (Ted) Ricke took place on November 2, 1952, @ Hazelton, Barber County, Kansas in the Community Baptist Church. To the union 5 children were born, Kirby Dean; Crista Jean; Teresa Darlene; Kathy Jo & Terri Kay Ricke. All have married and produced 15 grandchildren. The Ricke's were divorced in 1975 and Darlene remarried to John Roland (Jack) Bergren on May 23, 1981 at Hoisington, Barton County, Kansas.

On March 8, 2011, a son-in-law, Edward E. McMillin went to be with the Lord. Then on October 11, 2014, my son Kirby Dean Ricke, also went to be with the Lord. Two very sad times in our family life!

I was saved at the Central Baptist Church in Anthony, Kansas and baptized near by in Bluff Creek, in May 1940, and have been a Baptist since that date. My present membership is at the First Southern Baptist Church of which I am active today. Music in that church is a big part of my life. I add this because God is so important to me, and that is part of who I am!

Her employed began in June 1, 1976 at the Kansas Power & Light Company Office @ Light Company office at Hoisington. Retirement from that company was June 15, 1995, after 19 years of service.

My hobbies are (obviously) genealogy, gardening, quilting, reading, playing the organ and enjoying my grand and great grandchildren.

My husband and I live in Hoisington. I have been a resident here for almost 51 years. We enjoy the small city, where there is almost crime and you know almost everyone and they all know each others business. ha.

Just checking in with a few quick tips:

Free Space pages are wiki pages for supplementing your family history. They can be used to profile anything of significance such as a special pet, a meaningful event, a school you attended, a family heirloom .... They're "anything pages".

Not sure what to include in a profile? Check out our Biography Ideas and Styles and Standards help pages.

Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.

If you have any questions, please ask!
