Belles of Sussex, 1945

This is a Kodak box Brownie camera photo in the early spring of 1945. The camera belonged to Betty Lou Fuller who lent it to someone to catch this shot of the "Belles of Sussex." Betty Lou is today 84-year-old Betty Mindemann who now owns the restored former Bear Gerken, Van Valin big house that is a downtown Sussex landmark, just to the east of the Pauline Haass Library and west of the Sussex Village Hall.

As Betty Lou explained it, this photo of 1945 on Silver Spring Drive also shows the concrete bridge over the Sussex Creek. This is a type of bridge abutment that was made famous by Wisconsin Gov. Robert La Follette just as the 20th century was arriving. It was a universal Wisconsin construction type, one-fits-all type of bridge barrier on each side of the road that funneled at that time, horse and buggy travelers and then automobiles in later years. And because of the sometime acute angles or narrowness, they became death and injury bridge side barriers for speeding automobiles. The last of this type of bridge in Sussex-Lisbon was on the Crooked Bridge Road which is now called "North Road," and crosses the Bark River as it proceeds north to County Line Highway Q from North Lisbon Road. Meanwhile, the bridge behind the girls was replaced in the mid-early 1950s when Sussex had its massive rebuilding of Silver Spring Drive.

Betty Lou stated that the barn behind the girls is the Clancy Golner barn on Silver Spring Drive, just to the west of present day Sussex Post Office and Hickory Drive.

In order, from left, the girls are Betty Lou (age 16), Betty Jane Bailey (19) , Audrey Stier (12 or 13) and Shirley Schlei (14 or 15).

Betty Lou was born in northern Wisconsin, and at age 5 caught the dreaded disease, polio, and spent three years recovering at Children's Hospital in Milwaukee. While she had some education during that ordeal, she did not start school until she was 8 years old. At age 11, the Fuller family with Betty Lou moved to Sussex and started attending Sussex Main Street School. Her childhood most famous home was the remodeled Sussex Creamery building on the northwest corner of what is today Maple Avenue and Champeny Road. Built in the mid-1890s, it was finally torn down just a few years ago. It had a name of "The Cheese Factory," but it never produced a pound of cheese, but instead specialized in butter and at one time it also produced ice cream. After going bankrupt, it was converted to a family residence and later an apartment.

Betty Lou would be just reaching 20 years old when she married a Lisbon farmer, Reuben Mindemann, and she spent the first part of her married life as a farm wife with as many as 50-plus cows. Later, Reuben would go into trucking and Betty Lou for now over 45 years has been an antique dealer/appraiser.

Audry Stier was the only daughter of a king pin family in Sussex, Roy and Jessie Stier, who lived on Main Street in the home immediately next to the St. Alban's Cemetery, and adjacent to Sussex Auto, which now owns it. Her father was a longtime village trustee, and later a multiyear Sussex Village President. He also served as the Sussex Fire Chief. Audrey married and moved to California, where she recently died.

Schlei graduated in 1946 from the Sussex two-year high school. She married a local farm boy, Charles Zimmermann, who later became a carpenter and owner of Sussex Lumber-do-it Center. Shirley, after three children, became a cashier at the Do-it Center, which has now been replaced by the Bone Yard Restaurant. Today, Shirley is a longtime prominent member of the Sussex Lioness Club. She was a charter member in September 1965.

Today, the Golner farm and an adjacent small open acreage is for sale, and it is expected to sell and be a major redevelopment in downtown Sussex. The barn in the photo has long disappeared, but the homestead and outbuilding still exist.


Mindemann house being sold to village

As you are reading this, the Betty Mindemann house in downtown Sussex, between the current Sussex Village Hall and the Pauline Haass Public Library, is in the process of being sold and acquired by the village of Sussex for the location of the proposed new Sussex Village Hall.

The village had a chance in 1998 to buy the then somewhat run-down Main Street residence. The property was owned by the estate of deceased Dr. Erwin C. Van Valin and his aged wife, Alvina ("Meddie"). She was in the final years of her life and she would die on Sept. 11, 2001, at the age of 93.

The place was sold to Chris Carrillo, who turned it into a gourmet coffee and bagel shop, with a side of ice cream cones. It went bankrupt in one year and ultimately it was a forced sheriff's sale. The house/business was a shambles. The sale amount was roughly $169,000, a series of fees totaling $504 and back taxes of about $4,000; the sale was completed Sept. 11, 2000.

Once she was the owner, Mindemann was a whirlwind, revamping it into the business of her life, an antique sales outlet.

She married Rueben on Nov. 6, 1948, when she was only 19 years old and he was barely 20; they were married for 52 years before he passed on Sept. 10, 2000, one day before the sale of the home was completed.

Rueben Mindemann of Lisbon was a farm boy who, once married, took over the family farm on Silver Spring and Town Line Road, while he was also involved in trucking. Betty had to do some of the farm chores as a young wife. This trucking business became a national trucking company while the cows disappeared in 1960. Betty took up antiquing as a business, and a hobby.

George Elliott was the original land claimer for the site, paying $1.25 per acre. In time, William Weaver took over parts of the Elliott claim and a small house was built there.

In 1917, there was something of an upheaval in Sussex as the Baer family of Menomonee Falls was spreading out from the mercantile business operations in the Falls. They tried to expand to Lannon, but that didn't work the way they wanted it to, so they got into the Marsden Building in downtown Sussex where the big community general store was located, and it became the Sussex Marsden Building, "Baer Brothers General Store." Today, this site is the Piggly Wiggly store and front parking spots.

When the Baer family came to Sussex-Lisbon (Sussex and Templeton were unincorporated at the time), they also bought a piece of farmland immediately north of the newly installed North Western Railroad tracks and depot, which were built in 1912. There was a 62-acre site back then and it needed a farm house for the extended Baer family. Meanwhile, Charles Baer wanted a home site in downtown Sussex. So he bought the present day Mindemann house site, jacked up the existing one-story home and pulled it west on Main Street, turned the corner at Maple Avenue, went north over the tracks and placed the home on the west side farm land to house the extended Baer family. Meanwhile, with the original house gone, the new Victorian Prairie Four-Square home was built for Charles Baer in 1917 and he occupied it until 1925.

In a few years, the moved house became the Frank and Elfrieda Tetzlaff farm and then, on their deaths, the Danny Tetzlaff farm and home. Later, Lied's Nursery would buy the farm land and put in a plantation of tree stock around the home site. Meanwhile, the Tetzlaff family expanded to three houses on the land they retained after the sale of the farm land. The main barn is long gone.

Recently, a developer bought the Lied's Nursery land the logical thing is that sometime in the future, the now-maturing nursery trees will be part of a new subdivision, but that will take a lot of meetings, planning and developing.

The Mindemann home's next owners were the Gerkin family, who bought it in 1925. They traded their land on Good Hope Road near Waukesha Avenue, to the Baer family for the Main Street home, according to the later Mary Gerkin Kerstein.

Next week: More of the progression of the Mindemann home and property sale in a follow-up.


Sussex's Mindemann home has changed hands several times

Betty Mindemann has agreed to her sell her downtown home to the village of Sussex. Built in 1917, the house is situated between the Sussex Village Hall and the Pauline Haass Public Library.

The family of Clarence Baer reportedly sold (or possibly rented) the house to a Brook family around 1924, and the Brook family might have been the sales agent to the Gerkin family. This is according to the late Lester Clarey, who lived to be over 100 years old. Mary Gerkin-Kerstein also mentioned this possible scenario.

When Mindemann was remodeling the building in 2000-01, a 46-star flag was found behind plastered walls and eventually given to the emerging Sussex Lisbon Area Historical Society. It is on display in the east room of the museum. Forty-six star flags came into prominence when Oklahoma was granted statehood on Nov. 16, 1907. The 46-star flag flew for only about four years and three months as New Mexico (Jan. 6, 1912) and Arizona (Feb. 14, 1912) became the 47th and 48th states, completing the statehood of the contiguous states. The 48-star flag would last until 1959 when Alaska became the 49th state; in 1960, Hawaii was the last state to join the union.

In 1925, the Everett and Nellie Gerkin family traded a farm on Good Hope Road (near Waukesha Ave.) to the Baer family to purchase the house on Main Street. The Gerkin family bought it because Everett was sickly and could no longer farm.

The Gerkin family had two sons, but they had left the farm. When the elder Gerkins moved, they brought their teen-aged daughter, Mary, with them.

She stayed in the Main Street home for a year and married a World War I veteran who was considerably older than her. This was a great love story as Rudy Kerstein was the Gerkins' rural postal delivery man (out of the Templeton post office). He saw the young Mary when she was about 12 and silently said to himself, "I will wait for her to grow up and then marry her."

True to his inner promise, he went into the service for World War I, came back and returned to his postal job. Eight years after his release, in 1926, he married Mary, now 21 years old. She left her parents' home and moved two blocks east to the Milwaukee bungalow Kerstein had built, and they lived out their long lives very happily. Both lived into their 90s and were married 62 years.

Everett Gerkin passed on Jan. 17, 1930, and his wife Nellie died several weeks later, on March 26. Mary received the home as her inheritance. She rented it out for a few years, including to Milo and Helen Hardiman.

Meanwhile, a new rural family doctor came to Sussex in 1931, Dr. Erwin C. Van Valin. Two years later, he married Alivina, known by her nickname of "Mattie." They lived in a variety of homes in Sussex, but by 1937, he was established and bought the home from Mary Kerstein. The home that belonged to the Van Valins from 1937-98 became known as the "Van Valin Home." Mary Gerkin Kerstein once said she sold the home to the Van Valins for $4,500.

Van Valin was a great community doctor in all ways. He was born Dec. 17, 1902, in the Racine County community of Caldwell and attended high school in Waterford before graduating from Mukwonago High School. He then attended medical school at Marquette University. He had an internship at the Milwaukee St. Mary's Hospital where he met Alvina and married her in 1933. He completed his training/internship and got his doctor's degree in 1931. He immediately moved to Sussex to practice and raised a family of three children, although one died as a youngster.

In Sussex, he became the Sussex Fire Department's rescue medical help. He was so prized by the SFD that in 1962, on the 40th birthday of the department, he was made the first honorary member.

He was one of 20, and the first president of the Sussex Lions Club in April 1939. Meanwhile, he was also a long-time member of the Sussex Ashlar Lounge, where he served three times as master of the lodge, from 1941-43.

On Feb. 4, 1968, he died of a heart attack at age 65. His wife would live on the house for about 27 years, into her late 80s, before she went to a retirement. She died Sept. 11, 2001, at the age of 93.

Next week: More on the history of the home.


Van Valin had big impact on Sussex community

The village of Sussex is in the process of acquiring a home on Main Street from Betty Mindemann. The longest occupants of the 97-year-old house were the Van Valin family, who lived there 61 years from 1937-98. The house has had a central commanding position between the Sussex Village Hall and the Pauline Haass Library. It will eventually become the new village hall.

Dr. Erwin Van Valin made house calls from 1931 into the 1950s. For many years, he operated out of an office in his home, which is where I made first contact with him as a teenager in the late 1940s.

In 1950 or 1951, he acquired a strip of land backing on the Bug Line railroad tracks where he built a medical office; the other side was for dentist Dr. Don Cotey. Today, this is the SOS (Sussex Food Pantry) office.

When Van Valin died in 1968, the place was rented to Medical Associates. Soon after this, dentist Dr. John Foley and Dr. Eugene Goetsch took over the building in the 1970s and it became strictly a dental office until the dentists vacated it, making way for SOS.

As a local practitioner, Van Valin was known to frequently make middle of the night visits to his patients' houses after receiving frantic calls. He also became the health officer of the town of Lisbon and the village of Sussex. In the course of his practice, he delivered a lot of local babies.

His grandmother Addie Lee was a cousin of Civil War General Robert E. Lee, commander of the Confederate Army.

His wedding to nurse Alvina was celebrated June 24, 1933, and that is when she came to Sussex. They had met at St. Mary's Hospital in Milwaukee when he was an intern.

They would have three children, with two living to adulthood, Teddy and James (Jim). There was a third child, Mary, who was sickly and died as a youngster in 1942.

Van Valin was a staunch Methodist while his wife was a Catholic. He took on many leadership roles at the Methodist church. In death, his funeral service was at Sussex Methodist Church while he is buried at St. James Catholic Church. His wife and daughter are also buried at St. James.

Van Valin was my family doctor and my otherwise healthy children occasionally went to him.

In the 1960s, our son, Craig, was skating on the Sussex Mill Pond in the area of Old Mill Lane, hit a crack in the ice and broke his lower arm bone as he sought to break his fall. That was on a Thursday. Exactly one week later, our second born, Carol, hit the same crack while skating and broke the same arm in the same way that her brother had broken his arm.

Van Valin simplified the bills that essentially said, "C Keller, broken lower arm."

When submitted to the insurance company, they were quick to suspect some illegal activity, as the only difference was the date, exactly one week later.

It took some explaining, but finally it was worked out.

Next week's fourth installment in this series will focus on Betty Mindemann.


Sussex's Mindemann home could be saved, moved

Sussex The Betty Mindemann home in downtown Sussex has been sold to the village of Sussex. The site, located between the Pauline Haass Public Library and the current village hall, will likely be used for a new village hall complex.

Village Administrator Jeremy Smith told Mindemann last week that the village is receptive to proposals to move the home off the site. According to Mindemann, this offer, which has to be finalized through negotiations with the village, could also include the three-stall garage and storage shed.

The 97-year-old home underwent a massive remodeling in the early 2000s; the garage and storage shed are both a little more than 12 years old.

Mindemann has purchased a condominium in Sussex and will move into it as soon as it is ready.

The gazebo to the east of the house will be moved to Mindemann's son's home, so it will not be available to anyone who wishes to save the other structures.

The last time a prominent Sussex home was saved was in 1983 when the massive Wintermute/Edwards home was saved by Don Holt and his daughter, Diane. It was moved from the across the street from the Mindemann home to a site in the valley of Silver Spring Drive, near the Sussex BP gas station.


Mindemann has spent much of her life in Sussex

Betty Lou Mindemann, nee Fuller, has spent an estimated 90 percent of her life (she was born in 1928) in the village of Sussex.

She was a grade-school graduate of Sussex Main Street School and later graduated from the two-year Sussex High School. At age 19, she married the 20-year-old son of a Lisbon farm family, Rueben Mindemann, and farmed with her husband for more than 20 years at the southwest corner of Silver Spring Drive and Town Line Road.

Before owning the former Dr. Erwin Van Valin home in downtown Sussex, she was born Dec. 15, 1928 near the Wolf River. She was the second born, behind one of her four brothers, and was the only girl in the family. Being the oldest girl, and second born, she had some of the advantages of a first-born, with expectations and the division of family labor.

However, her co-leadership role was cut short at the age of 5 when she contracted polio. She had to spend three years in the Milwaukee Children's Hospital and missed the opening years of her education.

"When I finally got out, my father took away my leg braces," Mindemann said. "I had gone from a wheelchair to braces, and now he took them away from me. I ran with my brothers, I climbed trees, and later swam in the old Sussex swimming hole quarry, even to diving of the high east wall of the quarry. That was their way of me getting well."

She started grade school at age 8 at Hopkins Street School in Milwaukee. Then, for a short time, she lived with her grandmother, who owned a hotel in Gleason, Wisconsin (near Eau Claire). Her parents, Stanley and Marie Fuller, and the rest of the family, came to Sussex in 1939 when Betty was 11. She would spend the rest of her life now 75 years in the greater Sussex area.

Initially, she lived on what is Champeny Drive west of Maple Avenue. The house she lived in is now long gone, replaced by a modern two-story home.

Her memories of this ramshackle one-story home are taking baths in the kitchen, with hot water doled out from the boiler compartment on the stove.

A few years later, during World War II, the former Champeny Butter Creamery limestone structure had been transformed to living quarters along with about an acre-plus of land and became the Fuller home. This structure, often mistakenly called "The Cheese Factory," never made a pound of cheese, but did make thousands of pounds of butter and also ice cream until it went broke and it was converted to a large family house by the Owen family in the 1920s. Just a few years ago, it was torn down and today there is a sign on the vacant lot with an $80,000 asking price.

According to Mindemann, "I can remember this house and the property. We had two tennis courts and a goldfish pond. Then, when I was learning to drive, I drove around the house. However, there was snow on the ground and my car slid into the fish pond."

She added, "I can remember when Maple Avenue, and many other roads in Sussex and Lisbon, has grass strips growing in the middle of the road. Meanwhile, there were still horse hitching posts at the Brook Hotel (now the site of the Sussex clock tower). Meanwhile, St. Alban's Cemetery has a fence around it that was made with steel pipes."

She continued the story of her youth in Sussex, "What I remember most about old Sussex was togetherness, class plays, basketball and baseball games, picnics, wiener roasts and tobogganing and sledding on Linglbach's hill. Then I remember swimming at the Sussex Mammoth Spring Canning Company quarry, singing songs on the corner of Maple Avenue and Main Street, while sitting on the St. Alban's graveyard fence."

She also remembers sitting on flat cars that she hopped on when the Bug Line trains came through Sussex. Other memories were Woodchick's Soda Fountain and the Lees' General Store, across Main Street from Sussex High School.

Next week: Part five of the series on the downtown Sussex house that has been sold to the village for the site of a new village hall.


Mindemann purchased home at sheriff's sale

To continue the feature on Betty Lou Mindemann, we find her as director of the original Sussex Food Pantry from 1980-91. A Sussex educated child who married locally and became an antiques dealer at her Lisbon barn in 1960, Mindemann also put in time on the Waukesha County Historical Society Board of Director and became a leader in the annual Halloween Chili Cook-Off fundraiser for the food pantry.

There was a period of time when Betty and her husband, Reubin, had a series of health problems, particularly her husband. Meanwhile, Reubin's trucking business was becoming a national affair and Betty's antique business was taking her to major shows around the United States.

The Mindemanns sold around 73 acres of their farm to a developer for a Sussex industrial park; the big early business was the WOW beer distributing company, originally from Hartland.

Betty also made professional appraising a part of her business and also volunteered to do it for fundraising for various organizations, such as the Waukesha County Historical Society, and the Sussex Library, later the Pauline Haass Public Library. Over the years, she has been a big donor of her time and money to the library.

In the mid-1990s, the last of the Van Valin family, wife Alvina (in her 90s), left the Sussex Main Street home for her final years, passing in 2001. This allowed the surviving Van Valin family members to put the house up for sale. The village of Sussex had two shots at buying it back then but could not pull the trigger for various reasons.

The place was sold in 1998 to Chris Carrillo, who turned it into a gourmet coffee and bagel shop with a side of fine ice cream. He had some problems and went into bankruptcy in one year, leaving the place a mess. It stood vacant for a couple of years, adding to the decay. A Waukesha County Sheriff's sale was set up and Betty, remembering the home next to her Main Street School, decided to buy it.

The auction was set for Sept. 11, 2000. She won the right to buy it for roughly $164,000; there was a series of add-on costs that brought the total purchase price to $174,000. Her husband of 52 years, Reubin, died the day before the auction.

Initially, Betty repositioned the house with a remodeling, a massive outside landscaping project, and then additions of a gazebo, a carriage house (three-car garage) and a utility stand as it became the stand-alone antique sales office/display area for Mindy's Antiques. It was a show piece of Sussex.

Betty would not move into the house until 2004-05 when she sold the farm's final 12 acres (two houses, a barn and a machine shed) to developer Mooney La Sage.

Meanwhile, the Sussex Lisbon Area Historical Society was coming on track with Betty a prime mover and financial contributor, in addition to her experience as a long-time antiques dealer. She served two terms as president of the SLAHS and was deeply involved in the various displays and development of the museum after she instigated the society's purchase of the last of five Sussex-Lisbon railroad depots. The former Northwestern Railroad Depot was moved to downtown Sussex.

After 45 years as an antiques dealer, Betty retired somewhat from the business in 2005 and has spent the past nine years getting rid of her leftovers.

This past spring, the village of Sussex announced it needed an expanded village hall. According to the plan, the village would take over the entire Weyer Park and build a major YMCA along with a new Village Hall on the Mindemann land mass.

Mindemann sold the property to the village for $300,000. That price didn't include the gazebo, which she had dismantled and now stands at her son's farm in Ixonia.

Prior to the sale, Betty had been contemplating moving from the Four Square home, which was built in 1917. In her mid-80s, the stairs were getting much for her and her post-polio syndrome.

She has purchased a condo in the Seven Stones subdivision, in far south Sussex off Highway 164, and will move by October.

Meanwhile, the village is hoping someone might come forward to propose moving some of the structures on the property, including the house, carriage house and potting shed.

Betty has had one moving sale already and a big antique and folk art moving sale is set for Friday and Saturday, Sept. 19-20.

Betty said she kept meticulous record of what she put into the house and grounds; she had $480,000 invested in the home on Main Street but settled for $300,000 as a sales price to the village.
