Has a long history with the Maid-Rite

Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald
Dear Editor,

When this weeks newspaper reached me at my winter home I was disappointed to see that a big part of my younger life was being hassled. As a teenager I worked at the downtown Toledo Maid-Rite for Norma and Harlan Yerkes and Nina and Charles Scudder. Between my freshman and sophomore years of college I worked for the Scudder’s daughter, Jean and her husband Harold Ross at their Maid-Rite in the Quad Cities. In fact, because I first met my husband while working at the Maid-Rite my children served Maid-Rites at his funeral, which was also our 50th wedding anniversary. Needless to say I’ve cooked and eaten a lot of Maid-Rites.

I’ve witnessed customers rebelling when the cost went from $.15 to $.18 and had many interesting experiences serving customers, but never once a problem of the meat ar how it was cooked. It must be a credit to those good Iowa cooks! Let’s hope the political “kooks” don’t spoil our favorite family treat when we visit Iowa.

Best of everything,
