Irma was a Judge (1929 - 2014)
Kurt was a Doctor (1930 - 1999)
Kurt Stammberger and Doug's mom (Sigrid) knew each other since
she was a toddler (back in 1932) when she made her first trip to Germany with
her mother and brother. In 1939, Sigrid was 8 and Kurt was 9, Sigrid visited
Germany a second time. In 1954, Sigrid took a third trip to Germany and
visited Kurt again, by accompanying her mother. Kurt's parents had
bought a Volkswagen and Kurt was kind enough to drive Sigird and her mother to
visit their other relatives within Germany. They visited Sigrid's cousin Edgar
Morgenroth and his wife Irina and son Ditmar.
After Sigrid had married Stan, and after Kurt had married Irma,
the couples got to know each other when Kurt and Irma visited the United
States for the first time in April, 1975. Irma and Kurt's son Peter
accompanied them and met Sigrid and Stan's children Doug, Craig and Brad.
After three days in Croton-on-Hudson, New York with the Woolleys, the
Stammberger's rented a car and traveled to Florida for most of their vacation,
then they returned to the Woolley residence for another 3 days prior to flying
back to Germany.
Irma and Kurt and Peter visited the Woolley family in Coral
Springs, Florida in the late 1970's and early 1980's. In recent years, Doug
has visited Irma and Kurt in Germany in 1997 and 1998.
