Annetta Mable Eisenbraun was born April 3, 1927, in Creighton, South Dakota, the second of ten children of Herbert and Emma (Willuweit) Eisenbraun. She was baptized in the old Emmanuel Lutheran Church on May 15, 1927. She grew up in the Creighton area and received six years of education in the area before the family moved to a ranch on the Cheyenne River where she attended Squaw Creek Rural School. She was confirmed in the Lutheran Faith on September 10, 1941. After her schooling, she stayed and worked on the ranch. In 1946, she worked for Hustead’s and stayed in Wall.

Annetta was united in marriage to Wilhelm E. “Willie” Geigle in her parents’ home on the Cheyenne River on December 11, 1946. To this union were born four children; Wallace, Wade, Ned and Nan. They settled on a farm-ranch north of Quinn, where they lived for 28 years, before moving into Wall. While in Wall, she worked in the lunchroom at the Wall School, and later for John and Dawna Tsitrian at the Kings Inn Motel.

Annetta taught herself to play piano and later the organ, and played for Church on Sundays at Emmanuel. She loved to crochet and bake, and when she lived on the farm she raised all kinds of birds, including chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, and many more. She also always had a big garden, and loved her apple trees.
