Aaltje "Ollie" Scholte was born December 29, 1920 at Winschoten in the Netherlands to Kampo and Geeske (Grace) Scholte. In 1921 Ollie traveled with her parents to the United States through Ellis Island where Custom Officials deemed that the names Geeske and Aaltje were to difficult for use in America and renamed them "Grace and "Ollie". They first settled near Doughty, Iowa and in later years moved to Ackley, Iowa. Ollie was known as a hard worker and had places of employment including the Ackley Super Value Store, Kampe's Place, The Office of Doctor John Fetter DDS and the Ackley Canning Factory. She was a longtime member of the Ackley United Methodist Church. One rarely saw Ollie without her exclaiming, "Hello Kid!". She enjoyed reading books and magazines of all areas of interest.
