She was the fifth child in a family of eight. Hertha grew up in Stanton, ND on a large farm and attended a one-room schoolhouse.
She was a member of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church. She attended Nursing School in Minnesota, but before completing this course she fell in love and married, Gust Jassman in 1938. They moved to Chewelah, WA in the early 1940s with their young son, Dalton.
Gust went to work for Northwest Magnesite. As the years went by, they had three more sons, Gordon, Eugene and Larry. Gust died in 1953 from throat cancer.
Hertha found employment in Chewelah with Safeway as a meat wrapper and somehow kept her young family together. She moved briefly to Lodi, CA to help care for her parents in 1957. She returned to Washington in 1958 and continued to work for Safeway in Spokane until 1964 when she again moved to Lodi, CA. It was at this time that she met and married Carl Treude in 1965.
