The following is an excerpt from a memoir written by Alice Naomi Hageman Imig in about 1977.2 She gave copies to each of her children.

Since I majored in Normal Training in High School, I received my Teacher's Certificate, allowing me to teach all elementary grades in a one-room country school. That fall I began teaching in the only new modern school of that kind, in the county, three miles from Seward and about six miles from my home. I taught there three years...

It was a lively neighborhood; the young folks living there had many parties (including one for me on my birthday). At these parties I met and became acquainted with George Imig, who lived one half mile from my school. I refused a contract to teach a fourth term, and George and I were married on August 20, 1917, and lived a happy life together for fifty three years until his death on January 5, 1971.
