  • Notes 
    • Catherine owned a millinery shop in Blackwater, MO in July 1911, her father had to sign for the loan since she was too young. In 1915 she was living in Brookfield, MO and running a millinery shop there. I remember my father telling me that Blackwater did not have enough people in the town, so she took the train to Brookfield, since they had a Brown Shoe Factory there and hats would go with shoes and have more business. That's where she met Myron, he was a supervisor at Brown Shoe. Also, I remember my father saying that when his mother, Catherine, was 8 years old, her mother, Emma, died and since she was the oldest girl, she would stand on a box in front of the stove and try to cook dinner for her father and siblings. When the meal didn't turn out very good, her father would just tell her to keep on trying. Catherine Brommer died March 26, 1970 in St Louis, MO. She was living in a retirement home called, The Council House on S. Grand, and passed away in her sleep; buried in Sunset Memorial Cemetery on Gravois Rd. in St Louis, MO. She married Myron Dean Hanna on Feb. 11, 1915 in Brookfield, Linn Co., MO. They had 1 child, my father, named him Myron Dean Hanna, Jr. b. 12-28-1918 in St Louis, MO. Myron was having an affair with a Madelyn Randol who he met at the Kroger's store where they both worked. Catherine divorced him on 4/26/1921. She married Alvin C. Warren 5/1/1922. Alvin died of mouth cancer on 12/29/1962. Born in 1879, but don't have the month and day. They had no children. Alvin's buried with my grandmother in Sunset. Myron Dean Hanna died 10/26/1967 and is buried in Lakewood Cemetery, St Louis, MO. The above is from Linda Rottnek.

      Catherine began working is Mrs. Mae Slocum's Millinery Shop i March of 1908 in Boonville, Missouri. While Mrs. Slocum went to Chicago to purchase spring stock for her shop, she left Miss Catherine Brommer in charge of the store. In July 1911, Catherine bought Miss Lizzie Fischer's Millinery Shop in Blackwater, Missouri. She was too young to sign the loan papers, so her father, Morris Robert Brommer, signed for her. In 1913 she got on the train and went up to Brookfield, Missouri where there was Brown Shoe Company. She thought this would be a better location since hats and shoes went together. September 1913 she sold her shop and moved to Brookfield, Missouri. So in March 1913 she ran a millinery shop at 106 South Main Street south of the main business district, south of the railroad tracks. Catherine rented a room at Buck house, now a Citizens Bank.
