Emma Fandrich was born March 8, 1924 north of Golden Valley, ND, the daughter of Benjamin and Mary (Mueller) Fandrich. She grew up and attended country grade school near the family farm. Emma went to work on the Gustafson Ranch. It was during this time that she met Glenn Hinshaw and the two were married on September 18, 1953 in Manning, ND. The couple moved to Bismarck while Emma worked at Vi’s Café for a few years. In 1956 they moved to the farm near Halliday. It was there where they made their home and raised their three daughters. Emma was a hard worker and could often be found working side by side with Glenn on the farm. Emma and Glenn retired to Dickinson in 1989 and have made their home there ever since.
