(This was written by mom before she passed away)
Louise Ferch Dribnenki was born on her grandparent’s farm in Acequia, Idaho on September 16, 1932. My mother taught school, so I went to various schools until the 6th. grade, when we purchased my grandparents farm and I went to school in Acequia until I graduated High School in 1950.
I went to secretarial school in Twin Falls, Id. I graduated in 1951. I worked for the Idaho Power Company until October 1952 when I moved to Burbank, where I lived with my Aunt Lula and worked in downtown Los Angeles for Richfield Oil Co. until October 1957. This was the year I married Gene Dribnenki and moved from Burbank to our farm just outside of Vida, MT. We farmed there until 1970 when we bought our ranch north of Big Timber, MT.
I started selling Neo Life health products in 1968 and am still in the business 50 years later, although I have slowed down!
We were blessed with 4 children. Karla Dribnenki (Jay) Billings, MT, Brenda Morning & daughter Tiersa of Billings, MT, Lorinda (late husband, Don) Brewer, Big Timber, MT and son Sterling (Destiny) Brewer of Belgrade, MT, Dana (Karen) Dribnenki and sons Tracer & Landon of Big Timber, MT.
It has been a wonderful life and I have been so blessed! I’ll see you all again on the other side. It’s been a good ride!
