Charley & Vera (Curtis) Wachter in Alvo NE. She was laid
to rest in Park Hill Cemetery .Many of you will
remember her working at Horstman's Restaurant in
the 1990's. She is survived by sisters Viola Wachter, Norma
Jean Boettcher, and Ruby Buchholz, and brother Don Wachter.
Please do not put items other than recyclables in the
recycle bins. Grass clippings and horse poop were
found there and it was not appreciated by the person
who had to clean them out!
