I do not know why this is called "Lindberg", but a note on the card said that this was my mother's favorite. Grandma Ruth was really my great Aunt, but she raised my mother from a young age. We always went to visit her in the summer and Grandma Ruth took over raising a couple of my sisters,too. She was born in 1905. As a young girl, she moved to Thompson Falls, Montana in a covered wagon. At least that was what I was told.
