Remembering Rosie

Memories of a Wisconsin Farm Girl


Date Published: June 2021

Publisher: Page Publishing

In Remembering Rosie: Memories of a Wisconsin Farm Girl, the author looks back fondly on growing up in the mid-twentieth-century on her family's Wisconsin dairy farm. She shares vivid and heartwarming stories of attending a one-room school, the dangers and hard work of dairy farming, and lessons learned that built a foundation for her long life. She reveals the turning point when she vowed never to be a farmer or a farmer's wife. 


Despite having an often idyllic childhood, by the 1950s, the post-war optimism fed teenage Block's hope of going to college to escape her barricaded and often small-minded world of farm, small community, and church. Though her desire to go to college was not encouraged by her family and teachers, and there was no money to help, as the oldest of five children, she knew she had to lead the way. Take a trip through the good, bad, and ugly of dairy farm living in the 1950s as the author looks back with nostalgia on the childhood she wished to escape.
