Tell us about your family: I am married to Bernard A Wagner a.k.a. Barney for 23 years. He was born and raised in Howard, SD. I have three adult children: Adam DeHaan, Lakeville, MN; Betsy DeHaan, San Clementi, CA; and Perry DeHaan, Sioux Falls, SD. Also seven grandchildren ages 7-21.....all very cute and smart.
Tell us why you belong to SDFRW and feel free to share any special activities and/or committees you have been involved with: I am passionate of how our country is governed and who is in leadership. Just to sit back and expect others to manage was not satisfying, I need to contribute to the Republican cause in my District, State, and Nation.
Hobbies and other volunteer organizations: I am President of our local Hospital Auxiliary, served on the Platte City Council Planning and Development Committee, former Secretary of Platte City Cemetery Association. When the South Dakota Affiliate of Susan G Komen was viable locally, I was the principal organizer and President. Since then, the organization has merged with the Omaha affiliate and is located there.
I am a semi-retired RN and have maintained many certifications for that job, which is my real true passion: Basic Life Support, Advanced Cardiac Life Support, and Chemotherapy certified.
My hobbies are vegetable and flower gardening, canning, furniture repurposing, quilting, sewing, machine embroidery, and crocheting. We have a pontoon docked on the river at Snake Creek and love to fish.
List a few fun or interesting things about yourself: During one phase of my adult life, I rode a Harley Davidson Road King motorcycle and rode through Sturgis main street during the Rally. My husband and I went on many long trips with the bikes through much of our beautiful country.
Who is your favorite Republican and why? President Donald J Trump. He will be back!
Favorite quote or Bible verse: From the Passion Translation, Psalm 23:1 " The Lord is my best friend and my shepherd. I always have more than enough."
