    Notes 
    • I am Martha Kletke Tecklenburg, the youngest of the E.G. Kletke family. I was born on our farm on January 3, 1911. I was baptized on March 16, 1911 and confirmed by Rev. Walter Meyer in 1932.

      My education began in Oklahoma but changed when we moved to New Mexico in 1918. I graduated from Las Vegas, New Mexico High School in 1929. After attending classes at Normal University that summer, I received a temporary teaching certificate. In the fall of 1929, I had my first teaching position. After three years, I continued my education in Alva, receiving my Bachelors Degree. My next school was in Hope, New Mexico where I taught math and science. Three years later I moved to Gallop, New Mexico where I taught Junior High math and science and girls PE. Going to school every summer and taking correspondence classes, I received my Masters Degree in 1961. I then changed to the position of teaching math in high school until I retired.

      I met Robert Clarence Tecklenburg, son of Herman and Florence Tecklenburg, during my first year in Gallop, NM. We were married on May 14, 1943. Bob was baptized in December of 1943 by Rev. Dale Schmidt of Albuquerque.

      After 42 years of teaching I retired and did child care service which I really enjoyed since we were no blessed by having children.

      We are both retired enjoying life serving others and our community when we can.
