About The Author
Katharina “Tina” Rempel immigrated to the U.S. from Mexico in 1977, becoming a U.S. citizen in 1986. She married her best friend, John Siemens, on April 17, 1988. She is the proud mother of two sons, both married, and Oma to four precious grandchildren. In 1989, Tina and her husband, John, started JW&T, Inc.—a company specializing in both residential and commercial construction.
Tina has served on various boards in Seminole, including the Chamber of Commerce and the hospital board. In November 2015, Tina had the great honor of being named citizen of the year of Seminole, Texas. And hardly a day goes by that she doesn’t tell someone how proud she is to be an American! This is her first book.
"This is truly a book I could not put down after I started reading it. I read it in two sittings and enjoyed every page..."
"I love this book. Tina did an excellent job of interweaving the stories of various people in various countries to share her family's Mennonite heritage of finally getting to America."
"I’ve always been fascinated with stories of migration to North America (present and past). Everyone’s story has a common thread, to seek a better life. A life of freedom from prosecution and other tyranny."
