Weltge at her parents’ home in Biscay, and was confirmed in her faith as a youth on Oct. 29, 1944, by the Rev. Happel, at St. John’s Evangelical and Reformed Church in Biscay, and then on July 4, 1953, by the Rev. E.A. Schuett at First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Glencoe. She received her education in Hutchinson, graduating with the Hutchinson High School class of 1949.
On Feb. 14, 1953, she was united in marriage to Clarence Baumann by the Rev. Walter Fischer at St. John’s Evangelical Reformed Church in Biscay. The couple made their home in Glencoe.
