Erna schardt, who celebrated her 95th birthday last saturday, was active in burgkunstadt well into old age. Celebrating her 50th birthday in the company of her family members.
In 1944, erna schardt had to leave her silesian home in sagan and came to the obermain, where she first found accommodation in strossendorf. Here she married georg schardt and moved in with him in his home in burgkunstadt. While her husband worked in the shoe industry, most recently as a manager in the obermain shoe factory, she took care of a small sideline farm and a coal business.
Today, it is hard to imagine that the fuel was still delivered by train and that it sometimes happened that a whole wagon had to be unloaded with a coal shovel at the railroad station in burgkunstadt. Three sons also grew up in the schardt family environment.
Erna schardt was not only an environmentally friendly cyclist throughout her life, but also enjoyed cross-country skiing in particular. Anyone who looked around attentively was not badly surprised to see the senior even at the age of over 80 years still in the cross-country skiing track in lahm. Even after the death of her husband more than twenty years ago, she remained a familiar focal point before deciding to spend her twilight years, also well cared for by her children, in the kathi baur retirement and nursing home in burgkunstadt. Here she celebrated her 95th birthday. She also received congratulations from the city and city council of burgkunstadt, which were presented by first mayor christine frieb; on behalf of the district and the district council of lichtenfels, as well as on behalf of the district administrator, the latter’s deputy, monika faber, offered birthday wishes. Also pastor heinz geyer from the evangelic church in burgkunstadt and many friends and acquaintances, as well as the home management of the baur-seniorenheims, visited erna schardt on her honorary day.
