Obituary*Obituary: Emily A. Saathoff, 91, died Sunday, November 8, 2009, in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. She and her husband, Andrew, farmed near Oketo, Kansas until 1980 when they retired and moved to Beatrice, Nebraska. Andrew died on August 19, 1996. Emily was also preceded in death by her two sisters, Lula Woodward and Alma Foreman, and by her brother, Leslie.


Emily was born December 14, 1917 at the family farm near Barneston, Nebraska, to Henry and Mona (Hartwig) Zimmerman. She married Andrew B. Saathoff on January 31, 1939.


Emily and Andrew had 3 children, Arlyn (Ruth) Saathoff – Gig Harbor, Washington; Melvadeen (Bob) Neely – Sioux Falls, South Dakota; and Ken (Barbara) Saathoff – Overland Park, Kansas. Emily was also very proud of her 7 grandchildren; Tom, Jeff, Bob, Danny, Abbey, Greg Neely and Lisa Neely-Smith; and her 12 great grandchildren.


For 40 years, Emily and Andrew were active members of the State Line Lutheran Church south of Wymore. Later, they joined St. John’s Lutheran Church in Beatrice. Emily looked forward to spending time with friends, and she never missed an opportunity to play cards. She enjoyed quilting, and she loved sports. She seemed to know how to grow, can or cook anything, and enjoyed indulging her family with their individual favorites. They will miss her unconditional love and encouragement.


Besides her own family, Emily was very close to her brother, Arnold Zimmerman, and his wife, Lorene, and her other sister-in-law, Lula Saathoff, who all live in Beatrice.
