Gothenburg Times


On February 13, 1930, Corinne Joyce was born to John and Ethel (Shaffer) Fecht on the family farm outside Regan, Nebraska. Due to the impact of the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl, the family moved in 1933 to the farmlands south of Gothenburg, Nebraska. She grew up here, learning to shoot, ride, fish, (and keep her brothers in line), as well as to cook and sew. Being a farm kid in those days meant she grew up without electricity or indoor plumbing, but studying by kerosene lamp didn’t slow her down. She was skipped a grade when it was time for her to go to high school in town. She graduated with the GHS class of 1947 and always loved being involved with planning reunions and keeping up with her classmates.
