Doris Grace Robertson was born on Nov. 5, 1929, in Rawlins to Albert and Nellie (Braig) Robertson. She attended school in Rawlins graduating high school in 1948.

They have five grandchildren: Fabrianne (Zach) Privette, Tyson, Jacob (Janell), Adam (April) and Logan, four great grandchildren: Brooks, Jessa, Nichole and Carson.

The couple moved to many communities throughout Mr. Oberheu’s career as a Pastor of Lutheran Churches of the Missouri Synod. The couple and family lived in California, Illinois, Nebraska, North Dakota, Wyoming, and Colorado.
