General Notes: Death recorded, Carver Co. Book A, Page 130, Line 36

I found a Michael Franz Borka's death certificate DOB: 1868, Holland. DOD: Feb 17, 1877 age 9. Arrived in Minnesota 1874. Died of heart disease. I don't know if this is a separate child or if this is supposed to be Frank Herman. Death dates are close and birth dates could be close, but the places of birth do not match. "Both" children were around 9 years of age at death, but causes of death are different. One died of heart disease, one of diphtheria. Michael Franzs' death recorded Carver Co. Book A, Page 24, Line 4. Frank Herman death recorded Carver Co, Book A, Page 25, Line 6. Frank Herman was born ca. Dec 1867 but the records state he was born in Minnesota, which could possibly be a mistake. I will treat them as two different children, POSSIBLY THEY WERE TWINS.

General Notes: The year of birth is estimated. She possibly could have been a twin born in 1875 as her death record indicates that she was 62 years old at the time of her death, which puts her birth year at 1875, but her brother was also born in September 1875. I cannot find any further records to confirm birth year.

Newspaper article "A GROOM LESS WEDDING", 22 Jul 1910, (kept in Borka book)
Newspaper article about Elizabeth, who was supposed to marry a Mr. Fritz but he left her standing at the altar. Two years later, she married Arnold. My mom, Madeline, never knew that grandma was previously engaged and had planned to marry Mr. Fritz. She also told me that grandma wasn't grandpa's first choice, that he was really in love with her sister, Agnes but Agnes wanted nothing to do with him, so he may have married grandma on the rebound. She said they didn't get along that well as she was growing up.
Grandma lived 56 years in the house in Waconia by the lake. All the children were born there. They first lived downstairs then she spent the rest of her time there living upstairs. I remember when there was no indoor plumbing and when we visited grandma, we used what my dad called "thunder mugs" at night so we wouldn't have to make the trip to the outhouse, especially in the cold. She moved out of Waconia sometime after 1970 and moved in with my mom and dad, Madeline and Louie.
When grandma moved from Waconia, she gave me the sleigh bed that all of the kids were born in. Some years later my mother gave me the tall, mirrored dresser that matches the set. There is one other dresser to the set which I think is in the Kaufhold family. I still have the bed and dresser. The original furniture store tag is still on the back of the dresser with grandpa's name on it.

Grandma cleaned house for Dr. & Mrs. Margaret Arnold. Margaret and my mom went to school together. Grandma also worked in the canning factory.

Rudy tells me that Grandma chewed "snuff" her entire life (no one ever knew). I guess she started as a young girl when she worked with all the men in the fields. Her favorite "brand" was Red Devil. Rudy said that one time he was taking mom to do errands and mom asked him to stop at the drugstore, asking why, mom told him she needed to get grandma her chew! That's the first Rudy ever knew grandma chewed. I never knew either until Rudy told me sometime later. I always thought she was chewing gum. No wonder she always kept a tissue in her hand!!

From some conversations with mother:
Grandpa Arnold owned a model T Ford. They never owned a washing machine; all laundry was done by hand. The had a wood stove for cooking and an "icebox" for refrigeration, the ice was delivered. The home which was rented, and was heated with an oil burner. One time, there was a tornado and great grandpa Borka (Lizzie's dad) hid behind the bed, while he was supposed to be baby sitting.

Grandpa Arnold was a house painter and wall paperer and Grandma Lizzie stayed home. Mom was the first one to own a radio, but grandma and grandpa used to listen to it all the time; the favorite programs at the time were "Cecil and Sally" and "Ma Perkins". They never owned a record player, but Lizzie's sister Theresa had a boyfriend who'd bring over his crank-type one. Grandpa played the violin, his violin was given to my brother Robert Betlach. The kids rarely went to the movies, because they didn't have much money; even though admission was only 10 cents. Mom liked Joan Crawford movies. During WWI the family got commodities. Mom owned a white poodle when she was about 10, she got him from the landlord, Mr. Wally Johnson. The favorite games around the house were "Little Red Riding Hood" and some game where they would spin 10 and take 10 steps, Checkers and the parish priest, Father Stelmus would come to the house and play checkers with Sylvester. Mom's favorite toy was her doll, she wrote 1927 on the back of the doll and a stroller, I still have the doll. The kids didn't have many toys and for Christmas they each got a bag of candy. They didn't celebrate December 24/5 with gifts, but Celebrated Jan 6th, St. Nicholas Day. Grandma Anna (Zbytovsky) Zeman would have the kids over to her house.

They attended St. Joseph's Catholic Church and if for some reason grandma wasn't home on a Sunday, grandpa would see to it they always got to mass. Grandpa was not of the Catholic faith, he belonged to the Moravian Church. The kids could go on dates with chaperones. Birthday's were not made into some big celebration, probably for lack of money; there were no gifts exchanged. Grandma sewed all the clothes or remade hand-me-downs. The didn't live on a farm but grandma always raised a garden.

During the war Arnold worked in a shipyard in Pendelton, Oregon. I have a letter from Arnold to Lizzie from Oregon, where he writes of breaking his arm or shoulder and tried to draw a picture of where his arm broke.

Small article June 6, 1932, Waconia Patriot, concerning graduating from St. Joseph's School


My mother finished the 8th grade and walked the 5 blocks to school. She attended catholic school; some of her teachers were Sister Veronis and Sister Pauletta, Mom said that Sister Pauletta did not like her brother Sylvester. June 3, 1932, Waconia Patriot, concerning a play St. Joseph's School put on.

Mom was the first one to own a radio, but grandma and grandpa used to listen to it all the time; the favorite programs at the time were "Cecil and Sally" and "Ma Perkins". Mom owned a white poodle when she was about 10, she got him from the landlord, Mr. Wally Johnson. The favorite games around the house were "Little Red Riding Hood" and some game where they would spin 10 and take 10 steps, Checkers. Mom's favorite toy was her doll (which I still own) and a stroller.
Mom's best friend was Margaret (Kolb) Arnold; and when they would walk to school mom would put her arm around Margaret's waist and they would walk that way and one day Margaret said "You know I just got this coat, and you're putting a hole in it!"
Mom cleaned house and babysat for a Mrs. Mock and earned 25 cents a day. One time she broke a goblet and Mrs. Mock was very upset, mom offered to work it off to pay for it.
Mom didn't work after her marriage while the boys were little. But did work at Oswalds Cafe on Ferry Street at some point. She remembers the Depression but always remembers having enough food. My dad was a guard at the Twin Cities Arsenal during the war.

In the 1950's mom worked at Nielsen's Grocery Store in the meat department with my dad. In the 1960's, she started working at NFC Company, which was the Nels F. Cornelius Company; which eventually became West Bend Thermo Serv. She worked there just under 20 years. After retirement and after my dad passed away, she sold the big house at 311 Monroe and moved with my grandmother to a mobile home in Ramsey, Mn. In 1999 she came to live with me, until I had no choice, because of her health issues, but to place her in a Monticello Nursing Home where she remained until her death in 2002.

Obituary, Anoka County Union
Posted: 12/30/04

'One of those officers bigger than life' dies
by L.A. Jones, Union editor

Lifelong Anoka resident Rudy Betlach, former Anoka High School football, baseball and track star and sergeant for the Anoka Police Department, "was a local cop in the good sense of the word," said Anoka Police Chief Ed Wilberg.

"He took the time to get know the residents," according to Wilberg about Betlach, 65, who the Anoka police chief remembers looking up to in his boyhood when Betlach was an athletic icon at the high school.

Betlach, who also served in the United States Navy from 1957 to 1960 on the USS Boxer, died Dec. 23.

When Wilberg started with the Anoka PD in 1975, Betlach was an investigator and taught a lot of the young recruits, including himself, according to Wilberg.

"He was one of those officers who was bigger than life," Wilberg said, having recorded numerous track records at Anoka HS. "He always took great pride in helping other police officers."

The one distinct thing Wilberg recalls most about Betlach was that he always had a tale to tell, and his tales were dramatic, heartfelt and affected the way people felt about things.

"His stories all had a point to them," Wilberg said. "He was the kind of a man with stories that showed good always overcame evil."

If there was a kid from a good family, according to the chief, Betlach would take him or her under his badge in a disciplinarian type of way because he knew he would receive better punishment from his family than any kind of punitive measures the juvenile justice system could possibly dole out.

Because Betlach lived all of his life in Anoka, he knew many of the families in the community and made it a point to make friends and acquaintances with everyone he met.

When he retired from the Anoka PD, Betlach had risen to master sergeant in charge of coordinating the patrol division. Betlach was also a member of the Anoka American Legion.

He is survived by his wife of 44 years, Sherrill L.; children Christine (Thomas) Vinje, Anthony Betlach, Elizabeth (Robert) Timm, Rachel (Matthew) Leshovsky, Theresa Betlach, Jessica (Peter) DuCharme; special daughter, Shari Frocier; sister Patricia A. Russell; brother Robert (Frances) Betlach; 13 grandchildren; one great granddaughter; and many nieces and nephews.

Mass of Christian Burial occurred Dec. 28 at St. Stephen's Catholic Church. Private interment was at Calvary Cemetery, Arrangements were by Gearhart Anoka Funeral Home.

He is a natural born athlete who excelled in high school athletics and was voted most handsome of his senior class. ( A fact that we were reminded of again and again throughout our lives.) He also played basketball in the Navy for which he served three years.

He married our mom, Sherrill, in 1960 and they just celebrated their 44th wedding anniversary on December 10th. He became a father in 1961 (for the FIRST time) and became a police officer for the Anoka Police Department in 1965, a career that spanned 24 years until his retirement as Sargent in 1989.

Our Dad was a proud man in many ways. He was proud of his family. He loved to watch us "shaking it loose" on the dance floor and just got a kick out of watching his children interact. He was proud of his Naval and Police careers. He had a den that displayed pictures, trophies, badges and other mementoes. When he was able, his lawn was meticulously manicured. Bikes were not allowed on the grass let alone the birds he would chase away so they wouldn't leave footprints on the lawn. He was extremely proud of his name. We felt sorry for every telemarketer that mispronounced it. He was proud of his "things". He had many collections he proudly displayed such as beer signs, classic car models, and, most recently, ships. The big things such as boats and cars were even named and labeled.

Mom and Dad extended their home and hearts to a special person we consider a sister. Shari recalls the night Dad brought her to our home when she was 15 and assured her she was safe. She considered him her hero. Shari became a part of our family and lived with us for the rest of her childhood.

Dad wore the pants in the family....at least that's what Mom let him think. Mom and Dad weathered many storms but, 44 years, 6 kids plus Shari, 13 grandchildren and one great grandchild later they remained strong and Dad let everyone know how Mom was his entire world.

Dad had many interests. There was a time in his life he would hunt pheasants with his dogs Sassy and Big Red, but his main recreational love was fishing in the summer and the winter. He made his own fish houses and even let his children help. He was a diehard fisherman at that. Rain or shine he would always go fishing. The same rule apparently, applied to golf. Our brother, Tony, recalls an afternoon of golfing during a downpour. It was raining so hard they couldn't see 50 feet in front of them but they were still swinging at balls. It wasn't all bad though, they had the whole course to themselves! Dad loved to work in his garage. He would be in that garage from morning until night refurbishing an old boat (either to keep or sell) or refinishing the woodwork on a piece of furniture. His garage was his haven, he would even paint the floor. The garage also became party central equipped with its own refrigerator and bar where many celebrations were held that are still talked about today.

Dad also loved music. Our Aunt Patty recalls memories of him playing the guitar and singing to her. In later years he did the same for his children. He would even choreograph hand gestures for us to act out some of his favorite songs by Conway Twitty and the Four Lads. Perhaps some of you were lucky enough to attend functions where we were forced to perform. Dad also enjoyed coaching his daughters softball teams for a few years.

Leo that he was, he lived his life like a lion. There was no sugar coating with Dad. He was always at the ready with his opinions whether you wanted them or not. He was who he was and didn't pretend to be anything different. You either loved him or he thought you loved him. Quite frankly, he didn't care either way but he did have a heart of gold and loved dogs and people and was particularly compassionate toward children. Many people would agree that he had charisma. He was also the king of one-liners, most of which cannot be repeated in the house of God. The one thing Dad enjoyed most in life was being with friends and family. Your visits to the house, your phone calls, your birthday and Christmas cards gave him so much joy and something to look forward to.


This is exactly how Dad would have wanted this day to be. To see all of you here, recalling the memories you once shared with him. He would not want you to grieve for long. He would want you to talk about him, remember him always and to celebrate the times you had together. We would also like to hear all the great stories of our father that we know are out there, please feel free to share them with us.

In closing, our Dad played many roles in life and he did it his way. He was a legend in his own mind and his neighbors considered him a legend so he obviously had them convinced. To all of us who loved him, he is a legend in our own private way.
