Classification: Query
Surnames: Gottschalk, King, Benicke, Grosenick, Kendall, Thurley
Alvin Bernard Gottschalk (12/28/1917 Lewiston MN – 3/8/1998 Rochester MN; ) married Lucille Sophia King (8/20/1919 Rochester MN – 2/10/1998 Rochester MN; ) on 6/28/1941 in Rochester MN.

I have obits for Alvin and Lucille Gottschalk.

As for Alvin, these are his parents:

Hugo Arthur Gottschalk (1/30/1888 Germany – 10/11/1968 Rochester MN; ) married Emelia Lydia Benicke (12/12/1886 Lewiston MN – 12/17/1966 Rochester MN; ) on 9/2/1912 in Winona MN. They had four children:

* Lester August Gottschalk (1/13/1914 Lewiston MN – 5/19/1989 Lapeer MI; ) married Laura Lucille Grosenick (born c. 1917 MN) on 3/31/1940 in Garfield MN
* Vernon Edward Gottschalk (8/23/1915 Lewiston MN – 12/13/1998 Rochester MN; ) married Monetta Joyce Kendall (7/18/1917 Stewartville MN – 4/3/1996 Rochester MN; ) on 12/24/1935 in Robbinsdale MN.
* Alvin Gottschalk, as per above
* Elmer Hugo Gottschalk (10/8/1923 Lewiston MN – 12/12/2015 Sauk Rapids MN; ) married Ruth Thurley on 9/28/1946 in Winona MN

This is the family in Lewiston MN in 1920: and in 1930 in Cascade MN: and 1940:

This is Lester in the MI death index: I do not know when Laura Gottschalk died. I got her full name from Lester's obits, as well as these birth records for their children: In 1940, Lester was living with Laura's parents: so we know Laura was born c. 1917 in Minnesota.

This is a more complete obit for Elmer: This may be the obit of Elmer's stepson: Ruth was alive in 2015 per Elmer's obit.

I have obits for everyone above except for Laura Gottschalk.
