Oscar Aderman Gets Confirmed

December 18, 2013

Last month I wrote of the Rite of Confirmation of Anna Marie (Boerner) Aderman in the Lutheran Church. Today we remember the Confirmation of Oscar Dearl Aderman at the same church about three years earlier.

Oscar was born in Altamont, Effingham County, Illinois on June 25, 1907 to Carl and Floy (Bates) Aderman. When he was a boy, maybe 8 – 10 years old, his family moved to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and farmed outside of Daggett. The family lived with poverty and extremely hard work from the time they moved to Michigan. Oscar had to quit school after eighth grade and go to work to help support his parents and younger siblings.

When he was 20 years old, Oscar took the necessary classes to be confirmed in the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod and become a member in full standing at Holy Cross Evangelical Lutheran Church in Daggett. The Rev. Henry Hopp presided at his Confirmation on December 18, 1927.

A few years later, after he and Ann had married and were living in Niagara, WI, they moved their membership to Mt. Olive Lutheran Church in Iron Mountain, MI where Oscar was a prominent and faithful leader in the congregation.
