Cedar Co. woman is new Neb. Mother of the Year

MENOMINEE — This year’s choice for “Nebraska Mother of the Year” is right here in Cedar County.

The Nebraska Chapter of American Mothers Inc. recently announced Jan Schiferl, a Fordyce area resident, as the 2013 Nebraska Mother of the Year.

Schiferl and her husband of 31 years, Greg, love horses and own the WJ Ranch in northern Cedar County.

“I am honored and blessed,” Schiferl said. “I never saw this coming – I feel very humbled with this honor.”

Schiferl will be representing Nebraska at the National Mother of the Year competition in New York City in April during the national convention.

Visiting New York City, the largest city in the United States, will be a new experience for Schiferl.

“New York City is certainly out of this cowgirl’s box,” she said. “I will enjoy this new experience.”
