Three daughters and a son were born to this marriage. Esther was an

active member of Zion United Church of Christ in Talmage.

Mr. and Mrs. Goering farmed north and west of Johnson until

After their move, Esther worked as a nurse's aide in the

Good Samaritan Center in Auburn for one year.

Mrs. Goering had been confined to a Lincoln nursing home the past
