“Hi Gary, they do look wonderful, every other month our residents invite guest to join them for our supper club and entertainment. The next supper club night is in February. I think we’ll have 50’s theme, Do you have any suggestions on live music and dancers? The lady you are asking about is Bernice who is not a resident here.”

Message from Susan Fassett Martin (’65):  Spearfish SD
Erma Peltier(Eurich) was the daughter of Dave and Eva Eurich,   sister to Bette Nerpel, Olynda Pigeon,  and was married to Frank Peltier.  They had no children.   They used to live south of my folks there in Dunseith and when I was a little girl I used to go over and sit in the bedroom closet and read magazines.   She was a sweet lady and I am sorry to hear of her passing.   Hugs and prayers to the family.        Susan
Erma Eurich Peltier
Memories from Vickie Metcalfe (’70):  Dunseith, ND
Gary and all,
Yes, gentle and kind, Erma was the Sister of Dave,
 Fritz, Betty, Freda,  Irene ,Olynda, Marie, and Little Eva. ( I may be missing one more.)

Their parents, David and Eva (Kraft) Eurich were longtime members of the Dunseith community.
And, good neighbors to many of our parents and grand parents.

Mary (Eurich) Knutson, and I once made a weekend visit to Erma
(Eurich) Peltier’s I believe it twas, over a year ago.  A utterly,
delightful afternoon spent visiting with Erma and her little sister,
Marie (Eurich) Beechler.

I, the collector of stories was humbly awed by this gracious lady.

Erma spoke fondly of her Peltier in laws.   She said,  “They had moved
over a  century ago to Dakota territory from the New England state of
Maine.    They began a farm about a 2 miles North and East of
Dunseith.  She said the Peltier’s were French.  English was their
second language.

She spoke reverently of her father-in-law, Mr. Peltier who always
called  her “M’selle” and  treated her like a grand lady.  Erma showed
us her beautiful china cupboard buffet given to her by her in-laws. 
She herself restored, refinished and lovingly, polished it  to a fine

We spoke, of our mutual friend Art Seim.   Art also, held Mr. Peltier
in high regard.  He’d tell of the great depression, the dirty
thirties.   Art told how seriously, Dunseith was affected.   Art
recalled Mr. Peltier butchering a beef or a pork several times.   Mr.
Peltier would  have it placed in a big kettle over a fire, stewing.  
Many people carrying bowls would walk to the Peltier farm from
Dunseith.   All would be welcome to food shared by the Peltiers.  Art
said, “the Peltier’s , were generous and fed many hungry families.

Much to my surprise, Erma had a light supper planned with Marie’s
help.  I guess, I shouldn’t  have been surprised,  as feeding the
hungry was also…. the Eurich way.

Joke of the day
Posted by Dennis Dubois (’63): Minneapolis, MN.
One day I accidentally overturned my cart.

Elizabeth, a very attractive and keen golfer, who lived in a villa on the golf course, we were living at in Sarasota,heard the noise and called out,

“Are you okay, what’s your name?”

“It’s Jack , and I’m OK thanks,” I replied.

“Jack , forget your troubles. Come to my villa, rest a while, and I’ll help you get the cart up later.”

“That’s mighty nice of you,” I answered,”but I don’t

think my wife would like it.”

“Oh, come on,” Elizabeth insisted.

She was very pretty and persuasive.

“Well okay,” I finally agreed, and added, “but my wife won’t like it.”

After a restorative brandy, and some driving and putting lessons, I thanked my host.
“I feel a lot better now, but I know my wife is going to be really upset.”

“Don’t be silly!” Elizabeth said with a smile, “She won’t know anything. By the way, where is she?”

“Under the cart!” I said….
