She was born January 18, 1921 at Carroll, Iowa, daughter of William and Teresa (Wiederin) Pudenz. She attended Our Lady of Mount Carmel, helped her parents on the farm, and worked for others in the area. On January 7, 1941, she married Elmer Staiert of Maple River, Iowa at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Auburn, Iowa. After marriage, they farmed in the Auburn, Breda, and Fonda areas for eight years. In 1949, they bought a farm south of Fonda where they lived for 50 years raising livestock and grain crops. At Fonda, Antonette was president of the Holy Family Society, President of the Rosary Making Club, and a member of the Hobby Club and the Catholic Daughters of America where she earned a 50-year pin. She and Elmer belonged to a square dance club, loved polka music, and enjoyed playing cards with their family and friends. Starting in 1977, they vacationed in Florence, AZ every winter for 22 years. They retired from farming in 1991 and moved to Sac City in December 1999. In Sac City, she was a member of the St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Ladies Guild, and Catholic Daughter of America in Early, Iowa. Antonette (Nets in the family and Toni to others) loved the outdoors, raised a large garden for her family, and enjoyed flowers of all kinds. She helped in the fields at planting and harvest times. She loved baking, embroidery, puzzles, and playing her accordion and organ.
