Item #:
Availability: In stock
Iowa-raised Dr. Bessie Rehwinkel served others before herself. Read her story in this short biography.

Bessie Rehwinkel did a lot of brave things: she became a doctor in the early 1900s when female doctors were rare, she took in three nieces to raise alone, and she also left everything behind to homestead in Wyoming. 

On her own, Dr. Bessie Efner was able to serve God and others in her medical practice. One of her patients, a young pastor, became her husband. Throughout their lives, Pastor and Mrs. Rehwinkel moved to several locations in service to the Lutheran church.
