Bill & Helen (Frahm) Enenbach's daughter sent me some more Frahm/Enenbach history to scan, and in the packet was this portrait picture of LaVerne Frahm.
I have a little military information but previously no official picture for Helen.
There was also more military information for Bill Enenbach, and Tommy Thompson who married Marian Frahm. Tommy was KIA during WWII and even though he
is not from Manning, he has the Frahm connection so I'll add his military history to Bill's story as a "family" military story.
LaVerne (Frahm) Bjorndahl
LaVerne was a member of the MHS class of 1938
Lt. (junior grade) LaVerne Frahm of the Navy Nurse Corps, visited with her sister, Helen, Mrs. William Enenbach, in Omaha. Both arrived in Manning
Tuesday evening to visit their parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Frahm.
Lt. Frahm has just returned from overseas duty. She spent almost a year in Guadalcanal and sometime in New Caledonia. She had also
served in a hospital in California before leaving the States. She has not been home for nearly three years. She received her nurse's training at St. Joseph's Hospital in Omaha.
Marian Frahm - MHS 1939
Mr. and Mrs. John Frahm received a message Tuesday from their daughter, Marian, who lives in Long Beach, California, that she
had received notice from the government that her husband, Tommy Thompson, a bomber pilot, was reported missing in action over Germany.
Lt. Thompson received his flight training at Hobbs, New Mexico, Lincoln, Nebraska, and Rapid City, South Dakota. They were married April 20 in New Mexico.
Mr. and Mrs. John Frahm have received a message stating that their son-in-law, Lt. Tommy Thompson of Houston, Texas, pilot of a B17, was killed in action over Germany, November 9.
Lt. Thompson's wife, the former Marian Frahm, is living at Long Beach, California.
Every little bit of information and picture people send me fills in more pieces of the Manning history puzzle.
