Donald Wayne Smetter
Smetter, Donald Wayne
Donald Wayne Smetter, 88, formerly of Lincoln, died July 30, 2011 at Sunrise Country Manor in Milford. Donald was born the son of Joseph and Clara (Miller) Smetter on April 19, 1923 in Beaver Crossing. He attended Beaver Crossing Nebraska schools. He enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corp in 1943, serving his country with the 764th Army Air Force Unit until the end of W.W.II in 1945.

He joined Western Electric, later a division of AT&T, in Lincoln in 1946 as a quality control engineer. On July 20th, 1947, Donald and Nelda Runge were united in marriage in Lincoln. The couple made their home in Lincoln until 1959 when they moved to Gretna, following Western Electric’s move of its operations to Omaha. The couple lived in Gretna until Donald retired from Western Electric in 1985 after 39 years. The couple then again made their home in Lincoln. Donald was active in his church, volunteering his time and talent whenever he could. He was an active volunteer and member of the Telephone Pioneers of America. He was a member of American Legion Post #3. Donald was a devoted husband, father and grandfather who loved God, his family and his country.

Madsen, Raymond
August 3, 2011

Raymond Madsen retired from Western Electric on 2-8-1985.  He was 88 at the time of his death.

An autopsy did not determine the cause of death of an 88-year-old man who had been dead for several months before being found inside his home late last week.
Deputy Chief Jeff Elliott said the cause of death for Raymond Madsen remains unknown.

Elliott said the case is still under investigation and that investigators are working with the Dodge County Attorney’s Office to determine a course of action.

Olsen, Doris
Doris Olsen

Sep 26 1930 – Dec 28 2009
     Doris Margaret Olsen was born September 26, 1930 near Burke, South Dakota to William and Lena (Schrader) Woehl and she died December 28, 2009 at the Rosebud Country Care Center in Gregory, South Dakota at the age of 79 years, 3 months and 2 days following a battle with lung cancer.
     Doris attended Neuharth School south of Burke and graduated from Burke High School in 1948. While attending high school she worked for Ollie Larson at the Burke Café and Hotel. She left Burke in 1950 and moved to Rapid City where she worked for almost a year before venturing to Omaha, Nebraska. She lived in Omaha for 53 years. She worked for two grocery stores and an ammunition facility in Mead, Nebraska. In 1958 she started working for Western Electric and worked there for 31 years, retiring in 1990.
     In 1969, Doris was united in marriage to Clarence (Ole) Olsen from Brainerd, Minnesota, no children were born to this union. Ole passed away in 1979 and she continued to live in Omaha.
     In July of 2000, she began a volunteer job sewing little hug-a-bears for the pioneers. She had sewn over 20,000 through July of 2009. After moving to Burke she was the only one they could find to sew them so they would send them to her in South Dakota. Before becoming ill with cancer she would drive to Omaha to pick up bears that had not been sewn. Sometimes there would be as many as 800 at one time. She loved her computer. Doris moved back to Burke in November of 2003, happy to be back in her home town.
     Doris was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; her brothers: Harry and Don; her sisters: Esther (Smith) Lindwurm and Anna Smith; her brothers-in-law: Basil Smith, Martin Smith, Carl Vance and Clarence Cline; her sister-in-law, Gladys Woehl and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
