  • Notes 

    • [Family Group Record of Denise Benjestorf]. [From Helma Benjestorf's bible] [from Douglas Lustig]


      Minnie was Heinrich & Mathilde's 3rd child. She was born while they were still in St. Louis, Missouri on 12 November,1879.
      Minnie married William Lustig in 1898, while she was living in Perham, Minnesota.
      Minnie was almost 24 when the family moved to Saskatchewan and was already married to William Lustig [ Jeanette remembers him as Albert]. The Lustigs moved to Saskatchewan with the Benjestorf'>
      s. The Lustig's had one son, Albert, who was born in Perham in 1900, and a daughter, Olga Violette, born in Perham in January, 1903, about three months before the move to Canada.
      Minnie and William Lustig had a second daughter, Myrtle, who was born in Melville, Saskatchewan, in 1907.
      Minnie and William Lustig divorced in 1909.
      Minnie married her second husband, Sam Amundson in 1923, and they were living in Minneapolis, Minnesota at that time.
      Sam Amundson died in 1935, and Minnie moved in with her daughter, Olga Violette, in Minneapolis, and stayed there the rest of her life.
      In her will, Mathilde mentions a "Marthel Amunson". Mom (Lucille Benjestorf remembers her name as Myrtle). Myrtle may have been William Lustig's daughter [see Aunt Helma's letter to Denise]. >
      She apparently was physically handicapped.
      Minnie died on 11 november, 1966.
