The Golden Roll


| May 2005


Doris Lindenmier, 81, of Cherry, Ill., died Aug. 28, 2004. Doris was born May 11, 1923, in Tonica, Ill. She married Lester Lindenmier on April 4, 1945. He died June 26, 1990.

Doris and Lester were one of very few husband and wife steam engineers in the country and many times operated their engines side-by-side. After Lester's death, Doris continued to show both her Port Huron and Lester's Reeves with the help of her grandson, Nick Lord, and friends Neil Drummer and George McCollum.

She was a member of Central States Threshermens at Pontiac, Ill., and the Bureau Valley Antique Club of Ohio.

Three daughters, a son, nine grandchildren and a great-grandson survive her.



Her bright smile, quick wit and sure hand on the throttle will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
