family holds 100-year reunion
The descendants of Henry and Mary Rehder gathered together in Cottonwood, ID this summer to celebrate 100 years of the Rehder homestead. Henry and Mary moved to Cottonwood from Missoula, MT in 1908. The children of Henry and Mary were Carl (married to Mamie Burgund), Helen (married to Goffe Eckert), Ella (married to Hayward Shields), Theodore, and Max.
Carl and Mamie Rehder were represented by the families of Lee & Barb Rehder, Mary Alice & Jim Ewing, and Don & Barbara Rehder. Helen and Goffe Eckert were represented by Rod and Renee Eckert & family. Ella and Hayward Shields were represented by Dorothy Romig and family.
The day began with the 2nd Annual Father Len Forsmann Memorial Golf Tournament at the Grangeville Country Club. Nine teams played in the tournament. After the golf tourney, the entire Rehder family in attendance gathered at the original homestead barn for a family photo. Family t-shirts designed and printed by Vanessa Rehder were worn by all.
Jim and Sally Rehder hosted a family get-together with great food, entertainment, and most importantly, family memories. Over 100 relatives came to the 100 year celebration from as far away as Bainbridge Island, Seattle, Kennewick, Spokane, Clarkston, Lewiston, Boise, and Brazil.
