I was just reading an obit in the paper, a Judy Smith, she was from TH. What caught my eye, was that she married Russell Smith in 72...Russell and his then wife lived just up the road from us on the Ryan, and I used to babysit the kids often.

Just heard from DAB's (Dale Backlund class of 55) daughter that he passed away this afternoon. I'm sure an obit will be posted later. He lived in Newark, Ohio for many years. He is survived by his wife Molly and daughters Sharon, Carolyn, son Dale and families. I will miss him, he was part of our family, raised by my uncle and aunt. He was a poster on this website for several years.

I called Howard, he felt pretty bad, said he was just thinking about him that he should give him a call.
He graduated with my aunt Laraine.
I will have to scan his grad picture and put it on here.

Thanks for posting the picture Blondie. What do the numbers mean? Number of years of particaption? If so he was a busy guy. What year did he graduate?

He graduated in 55.
The numbers are the years, 1 for freshman, and so on. So for basketball and football he was active in that all his high school years.

He worked for awhile on the railroad with my uncle, and then got a job as a mining inspector in Mich. Bigguy probably knows more about Dale.
R.I.P. Dale.

Shows how much I pay attention. Bigguy posted what year Dale graduated and the first question I ask is when he graduated. Duh.

Just talked to Mom and Dad and they told me who raised Dale and now it all makes sense. I know I was told the story before but it can take time to understand all of the French River interelationships.

My condolances to Dale and his family as well as to Bigguy and his family.

Marie Johnson, 95, formerly of French River, died Thursday, March 11, 2010 in the Barross House in Two Harbors.

Marie was born Nov. 10, 1914 to Frank and Greta (Nielson) Erickson in Duluth.

She grew up in Arnold where she attended grade school, and later Central High School. In the fire of 1918, her family lost their newly built home and had to rebuild. She was confirmed at First Swedish (now Gloria Dei) Lutheran Church, and later was a member of Arnold (now Family of God) Lutheran Church.

After her marriage to Walter Johnson in 1935, they made their home in French River, where Marie was a homemaker and worked at various tourist businesses on the North Shore. She retired from Lakeshore Lutheran Home as dining room manager in 1975. Marie was a member of French River Lutheran Church, and the French River Homesteaders. She enjoyed trips with Walter and was always glad to return home to her family in French River. For the past four years she lived at the Barross House, a wonderful home she appreciated living in, where she made new friends including Leah Worner.

Marie was very kind hearted and showed her family how to care for others. This was passed down from her parents. Grandma Johnson was a fun and loving mother, auntie, grandmother and friend to many. If laughter is the "best medicine" it has given Marie a long and healthy life. Everyone enjoyed the countless coffee parties.

Marie was preceded in death by her parents; her husband of 64 years; a brother, Edward (Margaret) Erickson; and an infant son, Robert Allen Johnson on Feb. 24, 1950.

She is survived by a son, Edward (Jane) Johnson of Duluth; a daughter, Carol (Ray) Leppala of French River; grandchildren, Sheila (Wayne Dahl) Leppala and Tracy (Dale) Torgersen of Two Harbors, Elaine (Robert) James of Duluth, Charlene (Robert) Laiti, and Amy Johnson of White Bear Lake, Lu Ann Leppala, and Gerri (Daniel) Fuentes of French River, Kristin (Matt) Lingle of Sartell, and Lee Johnson of Duluth; great-grandchildren, Bobby (Jessica) and Kyle James, Kylie and Alec Fuentes, Rachael and Dylan Laiti, and Chelsey, Alicia, and Shane Torgersen; and many nieces and nephews.

Marie's family would like to thank the staff at the Barross House, Linda and Val from St. Luke's Hospice, Dr. Allert, Dr. Peterson, and the staff of Lake View Memorial Hospital for their loving care.

VISITATION: 10 a.m. until the 11 a.m. Service, Monday, March 15, 2010 in French River Lutheran Church. Burial will be at Park Hill Cemetery. Arrangements by Cavallin Funeral Home.

virginia used to work where I did, but she was a cleaning lady and in our high school years Shirley and I were the best of friends. Her grandson Paul that died was Shirley's son by a previous marriage and I understand he was killed.

I knew Steve had died, but didn't know Barbara had also.

Her sister Verna was married to Ed Holappa. I know who Diana was married to, but it has slipped my memory at the moment.

So Virginia was the last survior of her family.
My sympathy to the family.

Their home was on the Alseth Road, between the four lane and the scenic highway. Jane was the class of 61. I think Karen was the class of 58. Very nice family.

No Virginia didn't teach school, that was Harriet Driscoll. Virginia was a stay at home mother back then, and then worked as a cleaning lady where I worked until she retired.

That would be the same Barbara Driscoll

Nice to see Walfred's fishhouse on your posting, Boon. I knew Walfred and his wife and daughter Delores.

I'm one month away from heading to the northshore for the summer and looking forward to some golf and fishing.

Rick worked with me in the track department on the DM&IR, for a little while. I remember he and I were on some rail gangs on the range in 1977. He was a good guy to work with and a fun guy to talk to. We got along well.

I never heard that name before, but did look it up in the book. Alden township-beyond terminus of Homestead road, what ever that means, lists Hugo Hampspinnar as a settler in 1919. He was from Viipuri Finland. The first homestead was built by Mr. Sundstrom where they lived until 1930.
In the early days, Hugo walked to Palmers every day where he would board a train and return the same way. In 1926 he bought his first Model T Ford.
The first graduating class from CV, was 1933.

Peggy L. Strand, 63, of Lanett, Ala., entered in the Lords Kingdom April 30, 2010.

"Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal."

Peggy grew up and formally resided on the beautiful North Shore in Duluth.

Peggy loved orchids, so beautiful yet so delicate, just like her! Mom, you will be missed, but our memories will never fade, thanks for everything! We miss you! Love Kris and Emily.

"I can only imagine what it will be like - when I walk by Your side

I can only imagine what my eyes will see - when Your face is before me

Surrounded by Your glory, what will my heart feel - will I dance for you Jesus - or in honor of You be still - will I stand in Your presence or to my knees will I fall - will I sing hallelujah, will I be able to speak at all

I can only imagine … When that day comes when I find myself Standing in the Son"

An amazing daughter, wife, mother, sister, auntie, grandmother and friend. She brought light into any room; may that light continue to burn in our hearts and memories.

She was preceded in death by her father Gunard Strand; and stepfather Lawrence "Larry" Contos.

Peggy is survived by Kristian (Rebecca) Hoglund and Emily Hoglund, to whom she was a loving mother; Mae Contos, to whom she was a loving daughter; Lori (Jim) Stroner and Kari (Joey) Edge, to whom she was a dear sister; Annika Hoglund, to whom she was a proud grandmother; and Aspen Edge, to whom she was a proud aunt.

Yea, that was him. Like I've said before, every time I drive thru Wendover, NV I think of him. It was his favorite. It was nice he and Betty could come to the all class reunion. Remember, they walked into North Shore School and surprised everyone.

I actually saw him at St. Scholastica before that. He was the Dean of Education and the school was using our Encoding (Health Information Management) products in their classrooms.

Harold Mostrom became principal in 1951. Deckhand and I started the 4th grade, our first year at CV. He was there until 1958, I believe, when Al Ness took over. His wife Betty was a substitute teacher. They left and went to Toivola-Meadowlands (The enemy) where he was principal. Deckhand, do you remember where they came from?

ARLENE MAE (WIGREN) CARTER
Arlene Mae (Wigren) Carter, 76, of Duluth, passed away on Sunday, Jan.


Arlene Mae (Wigren) Carter, 76, of Duluth, passed away on Sunday, Jan. 2, 2011, in her home surrounded by her loving family.

Arlene was born Sept. 20, 1934, in the town of Tripp, Wis. She graduated from South Shore High School in Port Wing.

Arlene married her high school sweetheart, Walter "Corky" Carter, in January 1954. They lived in Reno, Nev., Superior, Oscoda, Mich., and Clover Valley-French River area.

Arlene will be remembered for her love of family and friends, her beautiful gardens, and her many talents. Hobbies included ceramics, crafts, quilting, sewing, helping others, and too many other talents to mention. Arlene and her family enjoyed traveling in their motor home throughout the United States and Canada.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Arvid and Gertrude (Carlson) Wigren; and her brother, Dale Wigren.

Arlene is survived by her loving family, husband Walter Carter; children Kay (Alan) Erickson, Ron (Chris) Carter, Julie (Tim) Strom and Randy Carter; grandchildren Connie (Carey) Johnson, Brandon (Bridget) Erickson, Amber Erickson, Josie and Sam Strom, and Jeremy Carter; great-grandchildren Brianna, Laine, and Gabe Johnson, and Austin Erickson; sister in-law Marilyn Wigren; Auntie Lorraine Rood; and many cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Special thanks to Dr. Joleen Finken and St. Luke's medical staff and hospice staff.

She was a friend of my aunt Delores, and they lived on the Anderson Road, or is it called the Paul Road? Can't remember the name of it now, but Obergs lived on the same road. I think one or two of the younger kids went to CV.

I tried to edit the last post, and for some reason it didn't work, so will add this here.
I looked him up, and he is in the 1955 annual. It says Coach, Social Science, Health and Am History. I remember him.

I remember Bernie telling me that the Jackson name at one point was Burns (sp). That was when the family was in the "Old Country" as we called it. That was how we all pinned the nickname on him.

Going to Town
George Hagglund
On rare occasions, our parents would decide they had to go to the city for
shopping or other business. We only lived 16 miles from Duluth, but it represented
a monumental event! It didn’t happen often, so was regarded as a
rare treat by us little ones. During WW II there was gasoline rationing, and
that made a trip to town even rarer.
We started out by putting on our best clothes, which in the early days
meant a clean shirt and a pair of bib overalls. Our hair got combed if we
were going to visit someone, usually an uncle and aunt who lived in a
shabby apartment next to the Granada Theatre. Sometimes, we’d get a haircut
at the Granada barbershop by either Gus or Chris, the two barbers in
residence. It was off the lobby of the Granada Threatre, and customers
would come to the shop to buy candy or popcorn. A haircut cost just 50
cents in those days, which was big money. Sometimes peoplewould try to
sneak into the theatre through the barber shop; it never worked, the barbers,
two ancient grey-haired guys, would chase them away. It made getting
haircut entertaining.
Our favorite treat was to receive 10 cents for the Saturday morning movie
at the Lake Theatre, a run-down place that ran a double-feature (usually a
cowboy story) and two short serials. If parents wanted to get rid of their kids
for three or four hours, the Lake Theatre was just the thing. Usually the stars
were Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, Tom Mix, and others of that genre. The set
was always a desert somewhere in the west, a run-down town, lots of
horses, six-guns, and the occasional Indian. There was always a bad guy
and a well used saloon set that was used in in innumerable films. There was
always a good cowboy and a bad one who rode a black horse; the good
cowboy always won after a long and complex set of shoot-out scenes from
the back of horses. After three hours in the darkened theatre, we emerged
into the sunshine half blinded and blinking in the bright sunlight.
Another popular movie house was thee Lyceum, an old vaudeville theatre
that outlived vaudeville and was converted to a third-rate B-movie format. It
too showed double features on Saturday and was a mecca for little kids temporarily
exiled from their families. It had once been a grand place, with a big
organ and two balconies. If there were adults in the audience, the kids went
up to the first balcony seating and cheered on their favorite stars.
Before Christmas, we went t o town clutching a dollar or so that had been
given for Christmas gifts for the family. Making a dollar stretch to buy three
or four gifts was a difficult task, and usually meant visiting Kresge’s or Woolworth’s
where we would spend an interminable amount of time deciding on
appropriate gifts for brother, sister and parents. We spent endless periods
conferring with brother or sister before deciding on a purchase. We could
spend a half-day just looking for the proper gift for each. It had to cost less
than a quarter or we couldn’t afford it. We always went home swelled with
pride over our wise choices for each family member.
Sometimes we would visit a Finnish family that lived on 8th street in Duluth.
If the visit extended into the evening, us farm kids got introduced to
some of those childhood games that require a sidewalk, like kick the can,
hop-scotch and other city delights. Just being with other kids our own age
was pure pleasure, and to be accepted in a group of city kids for play was
heavenly indeed.
Just getting to t own was an adventure. In the winter, the North Shore of
Lake Superior was inhospitable and the temperature outside below zero.
Our old jalopies usually had just a little heater located on t he passenger side
of the front seat. It turned out very little heat under the best of circumstances.
On cold days the car started reluctantly. Our breath made a cloud,
even inside the vehicle. The kids shivered in the back seat and complained
all the way to town.
Getting back to the farm was always a letdown. Our adventure was over,
and it was back to the daily routine of farm chores, school, and listening to
the radio in the evening. We could only look forward to our next trip to town.

Dorothy Lorene (Skelton) Schmidt, 90, of Duluth, passed away Wednesday, March 23, 2011, in Benedictine Health Center, with her daughters by her side.

Dorothy was born in Duluth on Oct. 25, 1920, to Allyn and Edna (Ballou) Skelton.

She grew up in the Lester Park area and attended and graduated from Central High School. Later she moved to Louisville, Ky., where she met her future husband, Jacob Schmidt. They returned to Duluth and were married in Trinity Cathedral Church on July 13, 1943.

They returned to Louisville for a short time before Jacob went overseas to serve his country during World War II. Dorothy moved back to Duluth with their first daughter, Betty Jane, and Jacob later joined them after the war.

Dorothy loved classical music, as well as singing and painting. Dorothy had a fascination with Lake Superior and it played an integral part in her life.

She was a past member of St. Edward's Episcopal Church and spent many years singing in the choir and doing volunteer work. Dorothy will be remembered for her compassionate nature, terrific sense of humor and her willingness to listen. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

She was preceded in death by her husband; daughter, Sally; her parents; brothers John and Allyn; and sister Betty.

Dorothy is survived by her son Jacob M. Jr. (Sarah) of Tower; daughters Betty Jane (John) Fetvedt of Raleigh, N.C., Peggy (Howie) Tune of Reno, NV., and Susan (David) Birks of New Egypt, N.J.; 11 grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; and many other family members and friends.

VISITATION: 10 until the 11 a.m. memorial service Friday, March 25, in Benedictine Health Care Chapel, 935 Kenwood Ave., with Rev. Bill Van Oss presiding. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to the Benedictine Health Center.

Please leave a memory of Dorothy or words of support for the family at www.bellbrothersjarvidowd.com. Arrangements under the direction of Bell Brothers Jarvi Dowd Funeral Home (218) 722-5131.



Sorry for your lost Zeke and Sue. Thoughts and prayers go out to your and your families.

My deepest condolences to him and his family.
