Correction from Oct. 12:
The Dan Duerksen family got together the evening of Oct. 2 at the home of Marvin and Rosalie Duerksen west of Goessel. It was incorrectly stated that all Duerksen siblings were deceased. Ella is the only deceased sibling. Milt, Eulalia, Dora, and Marvin are very much alive.
