Notefrom June 1937 to September 1940She and Howard Taft Cash lived in Stevens, SD with Rasmus Mortensen from June 1937 to April 1938. During this time he harvested grain during Jul and Aug of 1937 for C G Dralle in Seward, Kansas ($4/day); from August 1 to Oct 10 of 1937 he worked for Victor Johnson in Ortonville, MN ($16.75/wk). He quit this job and returned to Stevens because his wife had become sick. From April 1, 1938 to Feb 1940 they lived in an old garage belonging to Pete and Marie Lynott at 902 Rock St., Sioux City, IA. To earn money, he raised chickens, raised and sold vegetables from their garden; she returned to work at Baker's. From 13 Sep 1939 to 5 Sep 1940 he worked for the WPA in Sioux City, IA as a laborer ($52/mo). From Feb 1940 to Sep 1940 they lived in a house at 2128 Dewey St, Sioux City, IA, which they bought for $400 (borrowed $350 against his life insurance policy).
Census*20 April 1940Lillian Mortensen and Howard Taft Cash appeared on the census of 20 April 1940 at Sioux City, Woodbury Co, IA, 2128 Dewey Street.
Notefrom September 1940 to June 1945Lillian Mortensen and Howard Taft Cash moved to Los Angeles, CA, arriving on 9 Sep 1940, where he worked for American Awning Co, Santa Monica, CA ($20/wk). They lived at 3370 Silver Lake Blvd until May 1942, then moved to 2645 Allesandro St, Los Angeles, CA. On 8 May 1941 he applied for a job with Lockheed Aircraft, and soon after started working for them as a riveter, building planes during WW II.

Notefrom June 1945 to April 1952In Jun 1945, with WWII nearly over, Howard Taft Cash and Lillian Mortensen decided to move back to Iowa and go farming. They stayed with Pete and Marie Lynott in Sioux City for a few months. In Nov 1945 they moved in with Earl and Vera Mortensen on their farm near Anthon, IA. On 3 Dec 1945 they bought a farm and applied for a loan from the Federal Land Bank. The farm was 120 acres located in Section 25 of Kedron Twsp, Woodbury Co, IA. On 1 Mar 1946 they moved to that farm and stayed there until 1 Mar 1952. They sold the farm, sold most of their belonging at a farm auction, packed their remaining belonging into a trailer which they towed behind them to Los Angeles. (He drove the entire distance himself, with only a few hours rest, arriving 2 or 3 days later -- this was before interstates.) After arriving in LA, they stayed with his sister and family, May and Elmer Brown at 2400 Elm Grove St, Los Angeles, CA, then they found a rental house and moved to 2949 Partridge, Los Angeles, CA for about three weeks. During this time he worked for Lockheed Aircraft, again as a riveter. Too many changes had happened in California since 1945 and they were not happy there, so they packed up their belonging in a trailer and moved back to Iowa, again driving non-stop. They arrived back in Sioux City exactly 5 weeks after they had left, and only hours before the bridge into Sioux City from Nebraska was closed because of flooding. (I remember arriving late at night, and seeing nothing but water on both sides of the road when lightning would flash).

She then moved back to Colorado Springs, CO and purchased another mobile home and lived again at 3524 N Cascade. By 1980 she had moved to 1025 Garner #15A, Colorado Springs, CO.
NoteShe was a great cook and a good mother. She didn't make exotic foods, but whatever she did make was very good, and there was always plenty of it. (Okay, so I didn't like the beets or the cranberries, but some people seemed to think they were good, too -- beside, I made up for that by eating desserts). Desserts were her specialties; pies, cakes, cookies -- yummy. As a mother, she always encouraged her sons to do the right thing, and always told them "when" (not "if") you go to college. There was never a doubt in our minds as to whether or not we were to go to college. College was not free, as we had to work to pay the expenses, but she went back to work so she could "loan" us some of the money we needed. She made some of our clothes, especially shirts; and cut our hair on a regular basis. I never had a barber cut my hair until I went to college.
Residence*10 April 1981She lived at 1025 Garner A-15, Colorado Springs, El Paso Co, CO, prior to her death.
Death*10 April 1981She died on 10 April 1981 at Colorado Springs, El Paso Co, CO, at age 68.

———

Darlene went to be with her Lord on Saturday, April 18, 2015. Darlene was born March 3, 1929, in Inwood, Iowa, to Bernard C. and Tilda Alice (Bergeson) Nelson. She was baptized on March 31, 1929, and confirmed May 9, 1943, at Bethlehem Lutheran Church. Darlene graduated from Inwood High School in 1947.

She attended Iowa State Teachers College, graduating in 1952. Darlene’s teaching career included stints at a rural school in Lyons County in Iowa, Melvin Elementary School in Melvin, Iowa, Denison High in Denison, Iowa, and Humphrey High in Humphrey. She did substitute work in Columbus, Norfolk and Battle Creek.

While teaching at Melvin Elementary in Melvin, Iowa, she met the love of her life, Don. They were married June 12, 1953, at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Inwood, Iowa. Don teased Darlene that he had married an “older” woman since he was born two days after her, March 5, 1929.

She and Don raised four children together while farming in Melvin, Iowa, Brookings, S.D., and then selling seed corn and insurance in Humphrey, Columbus and in 1967 moving to Norfolk. During their years in Norfolk, Darlene helped Don with their businesses, first selling seed corn to area farmers and then with their insurance business. She and Don built the Triple D Center located on east Omaha Avenue in the early 1980s to house the insurance business and bring other businesses to that part of Norfolk.

Darlene also worked as church secretary at Our Savior Lutheran Church for a number of years. Darlene taught herself how to use a computer early on and continued to enjoy using the computer and her Kindle. When Don’s health began to fail, Darlene became his primary caregiver until he was unable to safely be at home. Don passed away on August 15, 1993.

Darlene continued to work part-time, first at her own business, Secretary Pro Tem, one of the first temporary employment services in Norfolk, and then at Liberty Center and Improved Living Inc.

Throughout her life, Darlene served both her church and her community. She served as president of the Westside PTA, secretary of the Our Savior Lutheran congregation, secretary of Lutheran Laymen’s League and taught Sunday school. The service that held special meaning for her was the time she spent with Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML.) She held various offices in the local, zone and district LWML organizations. Everywhere Darlene went, she found fellow members who had a special bond.

Darlene and Don gave their children their sense of humor. She taught the importance of loving unconditionally. She was a dedicated wife. She had the marriage that we all envied. She managed the house and made sure that her children had everything they needed. She had the ability to take limited funds and made sure that all of the bills were paid.

Don would give her 30 minutes notice that they were going camping, and she could get all four kids and food ready for a weekend. Her husband would come home with all kinds of gadgets including a computer. She taught herself and everyone who asked how to use the computer. She’d embraced her independence since losing her husband in 1993.

She loved to babysit and bake them chocolate chip cookies. She taught them how to make lefsa and eat lutefisk for the holidays. And don’t forget “Uff da.” You have to know “Uff da” to be a true Norwegian. She was very proud of her family.

Darlene will be greatly missed by her children and grandchildren, Grant and Janine Drenkow (Brittany, Nathan and Allison), Brian and Danita Drenkow (Anissa and Kevin Marshall, Shelly and Curt Aust and Jason), Craig and Melodee Drenkow (Cassie and Fred) and Deann Alvarado (Isaac); and two great-grandchildren, Abbygail and Zachary Marshall; sister-in-law Shirley Drenkow of Melvin, Iowa; brother-in-law and wife, Ron and Gladys Drenkow of Sheldon, Iowa; and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband Donald M. Drenkow; sister and brother-in-law, Donna and Robert Mathieson of Dana Point, Calif; and brother-in-law Marvin Drenkow of Melvin, Iowa.

Darlene shared her faith at the end, leaving a folder with suggestions for final service, important dates and these notes included the following: “I would like a lot of music. I hope you will help people to think of this as a joyous occasion. I have gone to be with my Lord and to join my husband and my parents!” and “Don’t wear jeans to church!”.
Burial*23 April 2015She was buried on 23 April 2015 at Prospect Hill Cemetery, Norfolk, Madison Co, NE.
