Golter was born Sept. 28, 1925, to Edward and Lydia Huff on a farm north of Arapahoe, the youngest of four children.
She was baptized into Christ’s death and resurrection on Oct. 25, 1925, and was confirmed May 14, 1939.
Golter attended the Union Ridge rural school north of Arapahoe as a child, and later entered the Parochial School. After her father passed away when she was just eight years old, the farm was sold and her older siblings went to live with relatives while she and her mother moved into Arapahoe
She graduated from Arapahoe High School in 1943 where she enjoyed glee club, girl’s chorus and pep club with typing as her favorite class, according to family members. She also liked pink roses, dancing, skating and collecting pictures. Following graduation, she joined the workforce.
While taking a job babysitting and pushing a stroller down the street, she met Glen F. Golter of Arapahoe. The couple then began dating when he enlisted with the Army in 1944. On Dec. 12, 1945, she and Golter were married at Arapahoe.
With her husband stationed at California, she and another young woman left to join their husbands, which was not encouraged by anyone. Love prevailed and the two went to California, where Golter began a housecleaning job at one of the officer’s homes. When her husband was sent off to Germany, she then went back to Arapahoe to await his return.
Later, she joined her husband in Kansas where he was employed with the Bureau of Reclamation as a surveyor. They later moved to Johnson Lake where they began their Central Nebraska Public Power career.
?Moving to Jeffrey Lake a year later, she became a devoted mother caring for three boys. She and her husband also operated Golter’s Carpet Cleaning Service for numerous years.
Golter was involved with the Legion Auxiliary, the Kraft Club and Card Club, and was a member of Our Redeemer Lutheran Church of North Platte.
She was a big sports fan, especially when watching her sons play, and also loved to hunt and fish with her family and taking a yearly trip to Saratoga, WY, fishing for trout on the Platte River, the family said.
Golter enjoyed cooking and was known for her fried chicken and homemade cherry pies, never letting others leave her home without having something to eat, stated the family. She also enjoyed being a mother and a grandmother.
