Margarete Irene Yeradi was born on March 25, 1914 in Lusk, Wyoming, as an only child of Richard and Agnes Klette. Margarete went to country school at Lusk, Wyoming until the 8th grade then boarded with a woman in Chadron, Nebraska while attending and graduating from Prep School. Margarete was raised on a sheep ranch and spent many hours riding horses. Many nights her father stayed out in the pastures, sleeping on a cot with a rifle close at hand, to keep the coyotes from the sheep.
Margarete met her husband August (Gus) Yeradi during a parade on Main Street in Chadron. They had 70 years together before his death.
Margarete enjoyed helping old friends and acquaintances with their Avon needs for 50 years. She truly enjoyed her Avon business and all the people she came in contact with. She was good to provide her family with their Avon needs and worked hard to meet campaign goals for the President’s Club Awards.
As a member of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Chadron, she helped with Bazaars, greeted at mass, assisted in the Pre-School Religious Education classes, helped with the Halloween Party at the coloring booth, assisted with church decorating and cleaning, and participating in many of the family activities for the Knights of Columbus.
Margarete had a lot of fond memories of sharing in the activities and dinners of the Chadron Volunteer Fire Department as Gus was a member for many years. Margarete cherished for family and their times together. She was especially happy about the family reunion last summer where most of the family was able to attend.
