Hyacinth “Heidi” Tramp was born March 22, 1926, at Crofton, to Peter and Theresa (Albrecht) Mueller. She lived her life on the farm. Heidi graduated from Holy Trinity Catholic School in 1943. She then went to Wayne State College and became a teacher who taught grades first-eighth grade in a small country school. Heidi married Aelred Tramp June 29, 1948, and they had eight children. Heidi spent the last ten years in town at Walnut Village, where she made many, many friends and loved to play bingo, put together jig saw and crossword puzzles.

She was a member of Christian Mothers Society and the Ladies Guild in Menominee. She was a true and devoted Catholic.

You could always find an ice cream bucket in her freezer full of monster cookies or you could find her teaching her grandkids how to make and frost sugar cookies. She was also famous for her cinnamon rolls that she always had on hand, and making deer sausage was a major task for it had to be perfect. Gardening and canning was her trade; she knew how to raise a garden to feed her family. She loved teaching her grandkids how to play cards, the rules she would make up on every hand was priceless and, by the way, she would always deny cheating.

Heidi’s hobbies included her beautiful flower gardens, her wrens and finches that she watched out her window every day. She loved quilting, embroidering pillow cases and dish towels, and sewing. She was an avid Minnesota Twins fan and could tell you who they played every day. She loved the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
