Beatrice Bernice, daughter of Frank and Marie (Janzen) Fast, was born on January 2, 1927 at Newton, Kan. At a young age, she moved with the family to the “80” between Alsen and Loma, where she was reared and educated, attending a country school. She ventured out on her own and moved to Alsen in 1949. She was united in marriage to Nicolas Fohr on June 24, 1950 at Munich. They made Alsen their home where they lived, worked and raised their son through the years. Nicolas served as the Alsen Post Master and she became the Post Office Clerk. Nick passed away on February 9, 1973. She eventually moved to Munich and served as the Munich Post Office Clerk for several years. She was blessed to find love again and married Ernest Goeser on November 7, 1981 and they called Munich their home. She was appointed the Post Master of the Egeland Post Office and made the daily trips from Munich to Egeland, summer, winter, spring and fall, retiring on December 29, 1995. Ernest died on October 28, 2016. She was an active member of St. Alphonsus Catholic Church in Langdon and later St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Munich. She was an avid quilter and talented seamstress. She loved the outdoors and grooming her yard on her riding lawn mower. She felt blessed to have such a long life, a loving family and many dear friends on this earthly journey. May she rest in eternal peace.
