Albina was raised on the farm and came from a comfortable family. She was baptized Catholic, but became Protestant in order to marry her husband, Charles LeVern Baxter. Albina's folks weren't practicing Catholics, because they lived far out in the country. A long-time resident of Staples, Minn., she was a member of the First Methodist Church, where she was active in the Susannah Wesley Circle and the Women's Relief Corp. She worked as a homemaker and spent her time raising her four children. She worked a great deal in her large garden and canning fruits and vegetables. She met her husband, Charles LeVern Baxter, in a dime store while shopping. The couple's favorite song was "I Met Her in the Five and Ten Cent Store." They liked playing a card game called "500," which was popular then in the Midwest. They were married 50+ years, celebrating their Golden Anniversary, until her death in 1966. They almost got divorced once over her husband's drinking.
