    Notes 
    • Jo Peck writes that her father, Russell, was the youngest of the Bossert children, weighing in at 12 pounds. He attended Cassville schools, Bethel Academy and Union College in Nebraska. Russ and Eleanor met in Hinsdale, where she was taking her nurses training. He was working in Chicago at the time. Both had black hair, she with blue eyes and he with green, and they looked a bit alike. He stood five feet, eleven inches tall, with a medium build. Russ was an electrician, and a long lineman for Consumers Power Company in Battle Creek. The fram was still in him, though, because when he retired he always had a garden plot on one of his friend's land outside of town. He grew enough vegetables to feed his family and many friends. He and some friends would make sauerkraut each fall from an old German recipe, and sell it for miles around to finance his trips to California to visit his daughters. Although Russell was raised as a Adventist, he did not practice his religion as an adult.
