LWM, I am sure knows where Tim lives. I know this was brought up quite sometime ago on another thread, but I don't know myself.

No, I didn't know Butch and Tim were friends, both left so early in our school years(or atleast Tim did, he came to TH school system.)

Tim is still in California. Has been there for many years. He and wife spent time visiting TH a couple years ago, and I believe come yearly.
Also sending sympathy to Gary's family. He was a great guy and I don't think had anything but a kind word for everyone, even through his illness. Nice legacy. Nice memories.

Tim lives in Auburn, CA which is about 30 miles east of Sacramento. I used to stop and say hello to his wife Joanne when I was at Auburn Faith Hospital on business.

Gary Sironen will be missed. This was a man without a mean bone in his body, a true gentleman. He was a good athlete, best in the class of 58.

That is too bad. They live in the house my dad built. She had some kind of lung disease. A couple months ago, I was at the clinic getting pills, and she was ahead of me in a wheel chair. I didn't notice who it was, until I was at the counter, and she started to talk to me. At that time, she said her lungs were getting better, and she did look good. Harriet always looked good!

The name "Mrs./Miss Driscoll" rings a bell with me for a grade school teacher. Does anyone know if she taught at the John A. and what years she was there? I should, probably, ask this on the TH side of the tracks too.

Arlene M. Olson passed away on Sept. 6, 2008 at the Solvay Hospice House in Duluth. She was born on June 10, 1929 in Two Harbors to Carl and Mary Sandberg. The family moved to the Palmers area of the North Shore when she was six months old and she spent almost her entire life on that plot of land surrounded by her family. Arlene graduated from Two Harbors High School in 1947 and then received a degree in Home Economics from the University of Minnesota-Duluth. Arlene married Thomas R. Strom in 1951 and they had three children, Ann, Tim and Karl. She succeeded in making a happy home while working part time as a substitute teacher. In 1968 she joined St. Louis County Social Services full time as a social worker. When Tom died in 1976, Arlene maintained the family, home and lifestyle. She married Capt. Richard M. (Dick) Olson in 1983 and retired in 1986. Arlene and Dick spent many happy retirement years traveling home and abroad, with 17 winters spent at their second home in Bonita Springs, Fla. Their RV journeys took them from coast to coast and from Key West to Fairbanks. Arlene enjoyed and excelled at making a comfortable, beautiful and welcoming home. Her hospitality was well known and much enjoyed by family and friends. She made the Strom/Olson house the center of the family neighborhood at Bluebird Landing and it saw many years of dinners, celebrations and large gatherings of all sorts. During quiet times Arlene enjoyed her crossword puzzles, reading, sewing and decorating both her home and her dollhouses. Arlene was an active member of French River Lutheran Church where her artistic, decorating, sewing and hospitality skills contributed to many of its activities, committees and work groups. She is survived by her husband, Richard; sister, Evelyn (Frank Betts) Tietsort of Auburn, Calif.; children, Ann (Scott) Jackson, Tim (Julie) Strom and Karl (Christine) Strom, all of Duluth; grandchildren, Christina (Curt) Cavallin, Carly Jackson, Josie and Sam Strom, and Johann and Thomas Strom; stepchildren, Daryl (Linda) Olson of Fairbanks, Alaska, Sharon (Garry) Moe and Maureen Olson of Duluth; step-grandchildren Rebecca, (Dan) Olson, April Phillips, Justin Lundgren, Shawn (Marci) Lundgren, Maureen (Josh) Isabel, Torina (Jason) Stark; and nine step great-grandchildren; her special niece Mary, Ann Sironen and other nieces, nephews and relatives.

Although this is a very tragic thing that has happened and my heart goes out to this Solem family, I just wanted to let you know that I have been informed that it is not the Bruce Solem that we graduated with in 1967 from CV.

Doris Schyberg of Duluth left this world in the wee hours of Dec. 31, 2008 to be with her beloved husband Bill for the dawn of a New Year.

She was born Jan. 5, 1921 in Mason City, Iowa to John and Grace (Birkbeck) Peterson.

She graduated from Mason City High School. Doris worked for the Navy Dept. during World War II, first in Washington D.C. and later in San Diego , Calif., where she met Bill Schyberg, a handsome brown-eyed Marine. They were married Jan. 11, 1947 in Saratoga Springs , N.Y.

They moved to Duluth in January, 1948 in a Model A Ford carrying all their worldly possessions, persuaded by a friend that there was no place like it on earth. They built a 16x20 cabin in the woods of Normanna Township, and moved there in the summer of 1951 with then three month old daughter, Mary.

Doris worked at St. Luke’s Hospital in Medical Records and later for several Duluth physicians in their offices. She loved her family, especially her grandchildren and the outdoors. She was familiar with every tree, flower and bird on their 40 acres. She loved to travel, and couldn’t wait to see what was around the next bend in the road.

Doris is preceded in death by her parents, John and Grace Peterson; brother, Ralph Peterson and infant brother; as well as her husband, Bill in 2006.

She will be sadly missed by her daughter, Mary Louise Johnson; granddaughter, Saphire Johnson; grandson, Kristian Koivisto; niece, Pat (Scott) LaVold; nephews, Jon (JoAnne) Peterson and Robert (Jeannie) Peterson; five great-nieces; one great-nephew; several great-great-nieces and nephews; and a multitude of friends.

Her family wishes to thank Linda and Valerie of St. Luke’s Hospice Duluth, and Shirley and Les Nicholson of Two Harbors for their loving care at the end of her life.

Connie and Olaf were not only cousins but they were also very good friends. Kathy Lee, Olaf, Connie and I used to ride in the back of Nelo's bus and sing songs on the way home from school. Connie was a very friendly and nice young man.

His passing is very sad news.

My condolences to the family.

Thanks Blondie, I missed that. Only 46, way to young. My condolances to the Jackson family.

Jacksons were a big part of French River. Most of us had our paper delivered by one for years.

There were lots of them. His father was Lyle, is Lyle a brother to Leslie and David?

Hi all! I found this forum a few months back. I come here all the time to keep up on past and present doins up there. I try to figure out who is who coz I've heard all these names for years.
I'm Kim. My Mom is Phyllis(Jackson)Olmstead.
And if I may cut in, Lyle is the cousin to Moms side of the family. Brad's brother Mark was in my class. I graduated in 1988.
Anywho, I'd just like to say, I love this site. I love looking thru the old pics of the shore and places like Wonderland. I think I've read thru just bout every post.
Every name I see brings back some kind of memory. And sorry to say, many names of dear ones I didn't even know had passed.
So, thank you for putting up this site and letting me into your world.

LWM said he tried to post a response to that obit, but kept getting error messages. But this is what he said.

I wrote an answer to who where the Pines was. It was just west of where the safe harbor is. It was a gift shop but I believe it is closed now.

} I know there is was a gift shop, and know we had talked about it on a previous thread. It is right on the corner. Gee, its name escapes me now....senior moment!!

I remember the Pines but I have to ask LWM if that is even possible. Wasn't it next to the restaurant that Karen Strand's mother owned - not far from the McQuade?

I meant to say right on the curve, not corner.
It was by the McQuade, west(heading towards duluth) of it. My aunt also said the same as LWM, she was trying to explain it to me. The safe harbor took out the whole Fish Fry and some cabins next to it.

This is a picture of the tourist court and gift shop just to the Duluth side of the McQuade road and on the corner before that long straight stretch. It had several names over time. Could one of them been The Pines? In the picture it is called Elmgrens.

"on the beautiful cool North Shore Drive"!!! That is an understatement!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That doesn't look like the gift shop, but I am sure it was remodeled over the years.

LWM you should know if this is the Pines, I sure don't. Torggy I figured you would come up with something eventually. Was there any date for this?

I don't recognize this, Torggy. The Fish Fry was on the corner of McQuade across from the McQuade store on the Duluth Side. Strand's was south of that and then the Pines was next door to them - if memory services me correctly.

No date but the place went through many rebuilds. I remember it as a gift shop growing up. I also remember it having alot more Pine trees around it than the picture shows. Also they took allot of liberties in those days to "doctor" the picture to make the place look better. I think that Gravell owned it for a few years. It is just around the corner from McQuade road. Not much place for there to be much else between there and the Fish Fry but allot of things came and went in that area. Have to ask the parents next time I talk to them.

Speaking of the Fish Fry:

That is a neat picture, just how I remember it!
Torggy, LWM, keeps having problems posting on here, this is what he said.

I tried to post again and got that servor error message. That photo is Elmgren's Motel. I knew Judy Elmgren. She had an older brother Dudley who is or was a dentist.

That place is currently the Gardenwood Motel and was up for sale last summer. I think the Ranch House started in the old Pines but not positive. They eventually ended up about a block west of Spruce Court Road. The building was moved out of there---I think!

DAB might have known the Elmgrens. Fish Fry was owned by Claude Midlam. His son Fred owned the store across from the Fish Fry. Carl Bergquist had a Kaiser dealership in what became Clifton Fire Dept. right next door to Midlam's Store.

Boon, we have 101 degrees today, how are you guys doin over there in Windsor?


}Wow, didn't know about the Kaiser dealership at all.}

Do not know what LMW's problem could be. I well do what I can.

So where did the Pines start at then? Was it between Strands and Elmgrens? There were so many business that came and went in that area. And the Ranch House? Don't think I have heard of that one. Gotta talk to the Parents this weekend. Gonna have a list of questions.

Remember when the Castle looked like this:

Blondie: As you look at Elmgrens the Pines would be to the left or towards Duluth. It sat about right on the curve. This was one of our watering
holes. They also had cabins in the rear.The place was owned by Ma Forrest who owned the Forrest Inn. She hired people to run it during the season and was closed during the winter.

Blondie: I also knew Rudy&Carrie Anderson. They lived next or to the left facing the parsonage on the Ryan road. It was a small two bedroom house and is still there or was in 2000. Rudy drove truck when work was available or delivered fuel oil for Carl Anderson who also owned the store. Carrie worked at Maurice's woman's store

Thanks DAB, that sure helps explain it. I used to deliver papers in that area. Was "the Pines" before or after that little road that leaves 61 and turns back to Mcquade? Danged if I can remember that road's name right now.

Ma Forest, there's a term I have not heard in a long time. Used to deliver papers to the Forest Inn too. What a cool little bar that was in its day. All the knotty pine. Used to be hunting clubs would meet there and watch films. Had the bridge over the Talmadge to the cabins. Hatake(sp) owned it when I was there, then Bumgardner bought it. Wish I could find a picture of that place when it looked good. If anyone has one please send it to me.

Funny story, one time while I was still underage, a buddy came back on military leave and those at the Forest Inn accepted his military ID and sold him beer. While I was parked in the parking lot waiting for him to come out Constable Christiansen went by and noticed my car. Well, we got up the McQuade to almost the new highway and he stopped us. Of the case of beer we bought he let us keep one six pack. Guess he figured 4 guys would not get in to much trouble with six beers. Won't get that kind of treatment now.

Dab, that must be the white building now that was a gift shop, right on the curve. Seems to me there was a fire in it last year or year before, but could be wrong on that. Not sure if that is even open anymore. I know there were some cabins back in there.

LWM said that the church bought that house and tore it down last summer that Rudy & Carrie lived in.

Torggy, I can't remember the castle looking like that, the way it is now is so in my mind.
Funny how some things, places, etc, a person can remember so well, then others are a blur or not at all there. That is why I enjoy this forum, someone out there can always refresh our memories.

So Dudley was the owner then of Elmgrens? He must be up there in age!

Judging by the vehicle passing by in front of the Fish Fry I'd say that picture was taken in 1957!! And, it's gorgeous. So hard to imagine McQuade as a dirt road. I used to work at the Fish Fry for Claude. I used to work at Shorecrest as well and that's exactly how I remember it. Thank you, Torggy.

Blondie, Dudley was the son to the owner's back in the 50's. He married a sister to a guy that graduated frm CV in 1952. Dudley was a Dentist and they lived elsewhere after marriage. I think Elmgrens was sold after 1962.

I saw the Nygard obit but thought it must be someone else. Thanks for the heads up Cindy.

I never knew he had such an lustrous military career. He went to West Point and did some pretty secret stuff in WWII.

Hap, unfortunately the only annual I have is for my senior year. Olaf graduated the year before me so I have no pictures of him. Sorry. The last I knew he was married to one of my classmates, one of the Stromgren twins.

Doing great here myself. Hope life in Misery is doing okay for you.

Blondie, the obit says Mr. Nygard went back to school in 1965 and became a teacher after the military, so that would put him at CV after you graduated.

I thought I would put her obit in, sympathy to the family.

Kathleen M. Kehoe, 61, of Belchertown, Mass., died Thursday, Oct. 8, 2009 in her home.

She was born July 27, 1948 in Duluth to George and Elvira (Niemi) Kehoe.

She worked as a bookkeeper at Duluth Typewriter, and then Modern Machine in Minneapolis. She was a member of the New Birth Christian Church in Thorndike, Mass. Kathleen enjoyed ice skating, bowling and reading.

Ok. I'm sure you noticed I spend my summers in Knife River-my dad's home. Haven't seen Les and Carol for a couple of years. Saw Judy in Super one in T.H. a couple of times. Do you know Randy Ellestad?

Butch was in my class. I sure didn't realize he had so many siblings. Remember Darwin and that is it.
Sympathy to the family.

I remember having my letter jacket dry cleaned at their place. Tom and Tammy were in my class. My thoughts and prayers go out their family.


I still remember running into Everett out deer hunting one year. He was still out near the road but couldn't go into too deep because of his health. I told him if I heard him shoot, I would come check on him. I don't remember which year this was.

My deepest sympathy to the family, they didn't live too far from where I did, and I remember the older kids on my bus. Also one of the twins worked where I worked for a time and also took care of my grandma down at Lakeshore.

I might be mistaken, but seemed to me at one time they lived on the Ryan Road, not far from where I lived. If she is the one I am thinking of, she was very pretty. I remember at that time two boys.

Yes, Andrew and Phillip both went to Clover Valley. Andrew, I think, graduated in 66 and Phillip in 68. Her nephew, Andrew Sternberg, also was at Clover Valley and he was in Phillip's grade. I think his name was Andrew. I remember all three well. Andy and Phillip lived off of the Ryan Road. You could see their house from the freeway.

My condolences to the family.

Boon what house was that? when I knew the family they lived about 5 miles up the Ryan past the North Shore school, just prior to the big curve that went towards Bloomingdale and Nolte's store, that area.

I don't know about 5 miles up the Ryan Road but I remember the bus driving dropping the boys off in front (before the freeway was finished) and they hiked up the hill to the house. There are a couple of houses on the southside of the Ryan and one of them was Andrew's and Phillip's. That's my take on it.

Maybe Torggy can help out here.

I'll help you out here. They lived on the Ryan, first house after you cross the river heading toward Blondies house. Jerry and Harriet Driscoll lived there before they moved to the house he is in now.

After that, they moved to the Lismore Road west of the Lakewood road, over the hill, just before the road turns south.

Phillip Hanson has the B&B on the Berquist Road, right where the Berquist homestead was.

That is what I remember Bigguy. I remember when they moved on the corner of the Lismore, nice house there, Emily Hiltunen used to live in a small house prior to that, maybe two houses prior. Emily and June.

Actually their house was almost across the road from Erickson's, just before the old Sucker River Bridge as you were heading down the Ryan, it was right by the road.
I didn't know Harriet and Jerry once lived there. Jerry still lives in my house.

Oh I know where that B&B is on the Berquist Road.

Which house? That house that Hanson's lived in was there for many years. I remember VanGuilders living there prior. The house was remodeled a few times. Jerry and Harriet lived up near the Rossini Road for years.
The one they live in now my dad built.

Andy Sternberg graduated with me in 1969. There was not a Hanson in our class. Unless Sternberg got set back somewhere along the way.

I did not know Sternberg had cousins that went to CV though. Bit of trivia there.

Blondie, I believe that house was built after the Van Guilders. It seems to me there was an older house somewhere in that area. Too far back to really recall!

I guess you guys keep a close eye for new postings. I was messing with my profile. There was a more current photo in the paper. I am not sure where she worked but I knew the face. I don't remember her from school since I was a snot nose 7th grader at the time if she was the class of 71.
