Shared note
Was born in Ladybrand, OFS, South Africa. After marriage, she and her husband lived in Germiston, where he was a policeman. When he was given a medical discharge, they lived, first, on asmall-holding near Potchefstroom, and later on a farm, named Klipplaa tfontein, near Aliwal North. There was no electricity and she had to cook on a wood stove and use oil lamps at night. Herlife was not easy. After Oupa died, she sold the farm and moved to Durban. Later she went to a retirement home in Pretoria, where she died, suddenly, of an acute heart attack. Like most farmers' wives, in those days, Ouma had a store of home remedies for just about every illness. Her children and grandchildren remember being afraid to even sneeze when visiting her --some of her cures were as bad as the illness! But most were su rprisingly effective.
