Welcome to the
Riedmann Family

The first reunion of the descendants of Alfred & Frances Riedmann was held July 4th, 1992. It was held at what was then the
cabin of Lou & Sharon Riedmann. Below is a picture taken of the family. Each family wore a different shade of blue to help identify
each branch of the family. Food was supplied by Eddies Catering in South Omaha. And of course Cornhusker provided Goody pop.

The event was held in memory of Ruth Riedmann Elsasser who helped
start the project but passed away before the reunion was held.
Even through sickness she insisted the reunion go on.
She passed away January 26th, five months before the reunion.
As she use to say, "Life is uncertain, eat dessert first."
