Dwayne was born January 9, 1931 in the farmhouse on his parents’ farm at 100th & F Streets, near Millard. He was the son of William G. and Alvina (Neuhaus) Armbrust. He attended Oakdale country school and graduated in 1948 from Central High School in Omaha. He met his future wife, Nancy A. Pedersen, in Confirmation class at Immanuel Lutheran Church, Benson, NE. Luther League and church choir practice brought them together as a dating couple. They married on December 9, 1951. Dwayne & Nancy were blessed with 4 children: Sandra, Laura, William and Diana. They rented the Wally Sump farm and homeplace at 118th & I Streets the first years of marriage. In 1957, they moved to the farm they bought north of Elkhorn at 216th & State St where they milked cows, farmed, and raised their 4 children. Dwayne, Nancy and the kids kept busy with farming, church activities at Bethany Lutheran, 4-H, VE Grange, and his large extended family of aunts, uncles and cousins. They enjoyed Steak Fries, Pinochle, ballroom and polka dances, fishing and extensive traveling around the country and around the world. Dwayne enjoyed bowling with his farmer/dairymen friends for more than 40 years. And he served on the school board of the local country school, District #41. In later years, Dwayne & Nancy enjoyed attending their grandchildren’s various events. Dwayne loved his family, loved his church and loved his farm.
