She died at Goshen Care Center on May 27, 1997.

She was born March 18, 1907, somewhere at sea, to Phillip and Mary (Hartman) Welsch. She attended school in Lincoln, Neb., and Lingle. She and Fred H. Kirchhefer were married Aug. 27, 1928, at the Kirchhefer homestead near Jay Em. They farmed there until 1935. They lived in several different places before purchasing a farm near Yoder.
