Ada was born July 22, 1924 in Norton Township to Rudolf and Emma (Tews) Matthees. She married Ronald Rausch and together they had two children, Phillip and Daniel. He passed away and Ada found love again; on October 15, 1960, she married Leslie Iverson and they had four children, Peter, Marlis, Thomas and Sara.
