About Elisabeth Ronneberg

Stories of the family tradition:

When Elisabeth Ronneberg's son Wilhelm visited her in Kiel and told to go to a pub in order to see old friends, she always wanted to accompany him ("Ich will mit!"). At that time, a woman in a pub was somewhat unusual. Still, Wilhelm fulfilled her desire and took her with him. In the pub, she was already wellknown and got a strong drink, which was always served in a tea cup in order to hide the alcohol to other guests.

In her late life, i.e. after the dairy was lost, she often said: I would strongly like to clean some hundred milk-cans. (This may show, how much she still felt tied to her former obligations.)

Her son Wilhelm used to visit his mother every year during the court holidays in summer. After her son had died in June 1937, she did not believe in his death and said: He is not dead. Just wait until summer time, then he will come. However, when her son did not show up at the beginning of the holidays, she finally believed and said: It must be true, I shall not live any longer. Some weeks later, she was dead.
