With her is her cousin, who has also passed on. She started a cousins party two years before she died, and we carry on the tradition to honor her.”


Brownie troop

Contributor: Jan Pluta of South St. Paul

Date of picture: Unknown

Date of contribution: Unknown

Caption: “I thought I would send in a picture of a different sort of ‘sisterhood.’

“This picture is approximately 55 years old.

“This is my Brownie Troop from Randolph Heights Elementary School on Hamline Avenue in St. Paul. I am in the middle row, second from the left.

“It is amazing to me that I can remember at least the first name of almost every girl in this picture, but can’t recall where I put my glasses in the morning.

“Hopefully, some of your readers will recognize themselves in this picture and remember the good times we had as members of this troop. Mrs. Bellanger was our main, wonderful troop leader for the time I belonged this group, from Brownies into  Girl Scouts. Her daughter, Beth, is in the front row, second from the left.”

Caption: “On February 16, 1950, the Kerrigan sisters, Rita Grundtner and Lorraine Bartz, each gave birth to a baby girl at St. Joseph’s Hospital in St. Paul.
