RE: obit: Frank Kurtin - mom Mickalek
Frankie’s obituary was a bit incomplete. His parents Josef and Aneska Michalek Kurtin and sister Frances immigrated from Moravia in 1910 - destination Granger, TX. Predeceasing Frankie were his brothers Anton, Joe and Laddie and sisters Francis, Mary and Margie. After WWII and while living in Granger he farmed and later was employed at Naizer Hdw and Furniture owned by my Dad before he married Mary Lou Mulholland and moving to Flatonia.
