Mom was born and raised by Fred & Thea Ehrhardt in Gladmar, SK where she spent the majority of her life. She married Ed Vargo in June of 1941 and together they ran a lunch bar (where she baked as many as 17 pies daily); tried their hand at farming and then opened and ran Ed's Grocery in Gladmar for 24 years; as well as a store in Minton for 6 years, with Bernel's help. They also ran the post office in Gladmar for several years.
At the age of 86 years, Mom moved to the Golden Heritage Home in Radville and enjoyed her years there until her health prevented her from living alone.
