Oh my gosh,can't believe it Marie passed on. I have not seen her around for months. Her granddaughter TaJ'anna died in a fire several years back, they(Jill as I knew her by) lived across from the old fire hall at that time.

I am thinking that her friend Carol also went to our school!!

My deepest sympathy to the family.

I am a couple weeks late in posting this one.
http://www.twoharborsmn.com/event/obituary/id/22754/group/Obituaries/

Kenneth E. Johansen, Jr., 60, died Tuesday, Sept. 13, 2011, at Regions Hospital in St. Paul. He resided in St. Croix Falls, Wis. He is survived by his son, Bryce Keeler; daughter, Leigh Lawrence; sisters, Irene Hagberg and Floarn Lott; and brother Fred Johansen. No services have been planned.

Kenny was one of my best friends growing up. We used to ride our bikes into Duluth many times every summer. During those rides we would stop at the drinking fountian in the rest area by the pumping station. During one of those rest breaks a big newer Cadillac with Texas plates and a big guy behind the wheel wearing a big cowboy hat pulled in. He wheeled up next to us and in a sourthern drawl we could barely understand asked " can ya'll tell me where Lake Superior is?" Well, Kenny and I kinda looked at each other at first not really knowing quite what to say, seeing as how we coulda chucked a rock into the lake without much trouble, but then Kenny being a little quicker of thought than me says "yes sir, just stay on this road for one hundred miles and it well be on your right. Ya can't miss it." The Texan says "thank ye son!" and off he went in a big cloud of dust. We laughed about it for years.

Kenny was involved in a bad accident several years ago and I visited him as he recuperated at a treatment center in Superior. He made a full recovery but then had a series of strokes that he could not recover from at the end of August.

He well be buried next to his parents at Palmers cemetery.

My parents told me about Scott Jackson this morning. Lived across fro the old Blue Bird Landing I guess. His dad was Helge Jackson's brother.

Solem was one of 17 kids! That's allot.

Wonder what causes the obit to be in the paper and not on the internet?

Parents also said there was a Marple obit in the paper. That is a familiar name also.

Scott walked every day along the Scenic Drive. You would see him sometimes with his wife Ann and their dog. I don't think he missed a day.Condolences to Ann and their daughters.

A little history here. Scott's mom grew up on Greenwood Road right at the top of Pine Tree Road, up from the Rose man. She is the oldest and last survivor of the original Dahlberg family. Her daughter Marilyn, sons Lyle and Ray, and daughter Shirley graduated from CV.And yes, Scott's dad Harold was one of the Jacksons from Abrahamson's Hill.

It wasn't Marple, it was Marble. I know his sister Faye. They didn't go to CV. If Marple is familiar "Butch" Marple graduated with me, and I know there were more siblings.

Marilyn graduate with my aunt Laraine I believe in 55'.

Faye's husband answered the thing about obits. They charge $90 to put it online, and he said the obit in the paper cost $300. No wonder people don't put them in the paper. UNREAL!!

Patty still lives at the old Nylen place. Gary is in Alaska. He had some heart problems like most of the family. Their daughter lives on Greenwood just behind my parents. Patty was class of 69? I do not remember that and her picture is not in the year book for 1969. God I am getting old.

I moved to the shore in 1963 and that store was called Hatfields the whole time I was there. But I do remember people calling it Marble's

Well Blondie that explains allot. News papers have been hit hard by the internet and have to try and offset those losses somehow. I don't get the local paper anymore and circulation is down across the country. It is the wave of things to come.

Bigguy pointed this out to me yesterday, she was a teacher at CV and her picture is in the 55 annual. I remember her so well, if you go into Friday's obit in the Duluth News tribune there is a picture of her and that is how I remember her.

Eleanor Ruth Robinson Ellingsen was welcomed into the loving arms of her Savior, Jesus Christ, on Wednesday, Nov. 23, 2011, and reunited with her dear husband, Douglas.

Eleanor grew up in Duluth and Barnum and attended the University of Minnesota Duluth where she received her bachelor’s degree in elementary education. She was an elementary school teacher in the Duluth schools for many years and cherished the memories of her students and fellow teachers.

Eleanor was devoted to her children and was the original “tiger mom.” She believed in fresh air, sunshine and homework. She was not fond of excess television-watching or bad language. She spent many years attending swim meets, basketball games and piano recitals. She treasured her family, including her many nieces and nephews, whom she loved as if they were her own children.

Eleanor liked music, ice cream, animals, reading the newspaper and laughing with her husband, Doug. She enjoyed bird watching and picking berries. She loved long walks and the sound of the wind in the pines trees at Rose Lake.

Eleanor was an active member of First Lutheran church, and taught Sunday school for many years.

Eleanor and her husband had many dear, lifelong friends and family members, who remembered her with phone calls, letters and visits. She and her family were also blessed with the compassionate, professional care of the incredible staff at Chris Jensen. We are grateful for these friends and for the loving friendship of Sister Verda Claire Eichner.

In addition to her husband, Douglas, Eleanor is reunited with her parents, Sherrill and Doris Robinson; sisters Dorothy Ebel and Margaret Engesser; and brother Gerald Robinson.

She is survived by her son, Douglas (Debra) Ellingsen of Superior; daughter Lisa (Paul) Jeanetta of Duluth; and grandchildren Jenny and Paul Lukens and Saul Jeanetta.

Thanks for catching that Max.

Vern had a twin?! Whod a thunk?

Mr Nelson

I well never forget his Grading curve, Seems I always ended up at the exact middle of the class. He used to call me "Mister Average".

Can still remember his thudding foot steps coming down the hall in the old part of the school.

Vern brought in some guest speakers to class while I was at CV. Keith Brownell county attorney, Jim Ulland and some others. He seem to know or connections to bring in speakers.

At football he would tell stories of the "Great Oly Gunderson and Conrad Sundie" and how they played ball.

Vern drove that VW wagon and once on a football trip on the way home, we dropped Vern off at the dealer on hwy 53(where Kolar is located now) to pick up his car.

Vern signed my year book "To the man with the golden hands" His gravely voice rings through my head as he would speak to the class or at practice.

The baseball bat was a little much to show new ball players how well the football equipment would protect you.

I think he started at CV in 65 or 66.

It was a mixed bag with Mr. Nelson. He had some strange ideas and a hard time getting respect from some students. He was a large man and when he walked his head bobbed backward and forward as his feet loudly hit the ground. It made him quite memorable and earned him the nick name "Baby Huey" among many. Can't remember anyone calling him that to his face though.LOL

That said he was always enthusiastic about his students and could be very supportive, and after reading about his education that makes sense.

Please do not post complete articles from newspapers. I suppose one might be tempted to argue that they are out there in the public domain, but they are actually copyrighted content. I dislike receiving calls from publishers asking me to remove stories from the bulletin board.

Links are fine - full stories are not. Even with full credit given, still not ok.

Thanks - and a Very Merry and Blessed Christmas to all!

Funny story about Dan. We were walking out of the back steps of French River Lutheran Church after confirmation class. As we hit the bottom of the steps someone spotted a rabbit across the parking lot. Dan reached down, picked up a rock and half-heartedly pitched it at the rabbit. It skipped once and hit the rabbit right in the side of the head and it dropped dead. To this day the best thrown rock I have ever seen.

The reaction from the different groups was funny. While all the girls went aaahhh the poor bunny, all the guys ran across the parking lot slapping Dan on the back regaling him with what a great throw it was. The Pastor was rather silent.

Back when Dan and I went to school they used to give tests to determine what you were best at. I remember that Dan scored really high on the mechanical aptitude test. High enough to impress all of us.

Not sure what the protocol is for this but here is Dan's obit

I saw that in the paper, and meant to send it to you and totally spaced it out. Glad you got it though.

Marilyn went to school with my aunt Laraine. I remember Shirley, Lyle and Ray. Didn't realize she was a Dahlberg. Seems almost everyone is related in French River.

My sympathy goes out to her family.

Gee, just got an e-mail from Jeanne Holappa Wiita, her husband Ron passed away on Wed. We are so deeply sorry to hear this. She said she is putting an obit in the Duluth paper. Jeanne went to CV, her husband a TH grad.

Harold Mostrom was principal at CV when I was there in elementary school. I was in the first class that started CV in the 1st grade. Some my high school classmates (class of '67) were a few more years at Bloomingdale. The Mostroms lived in one of the wooden teacher's houses at CV, and I thought Carl attended CV only; he would have just walked across the lawn to school. Carl was in my class in elementary school and a good friend. He had an older brother who played on the high school basketball team, a younger brother Timmy who was a few years younger than Carl, and an infant brother. His dad was transferred to T-M while we were still in elementary school, and I saw Carl a few times in high school when we played basketball at T-M. We didn't keep in touch after school, though somehow I knew he had gone into nursing.

Mr. Mostrom I know was principal in 1955, as have that annual, and I do remember him. There was no Mostrom on the basketball team for that year anyway, if you meant he played for CV, but wish I had annuals in between 55 and 60, darn!! Would be fun too see. Yes, they did live right there at the school, like other Principals did. I don't doubt you, just can't recall any of the kids going to our school. Learn something all the time, that is what is nice about this forum! One person can fill in the blanks and thank you for filling that one in!

Mr. Mostrom came to Clover Valley in 1951. I entered the fourth grade in his first year. Bloomingdale was three grades in my years there. I last saw him at the College of St. Scholastica back in the early to middle 80s. He was the Dean of Education there. He remembered me after all those years!

Bigguy,
Prior to the new addition I am curious how they fit 9 grades in the old section of CV with no gym or cafeteria. Must have been crowded.

There were a number of grades that shared the same classroom. I experienced that multiple times over my years both in Bloomingdale and Clover Valley. Good to hear from you, Shoreboy.

So does that mean there were 1st grade classes at both CV and Bloomingdale at the same time?

Shoreboy there was a gym. If you took the back stairs down that is what they called the room on the right. Hard to imagine.

When they first opened the new addition to the school, yes, we had grades one thru twelve. Bloomingdale was still in existence. What I was saying was that numerous classrooms had split grades in them. I experienced that three times in grades one thru six.

Please send my greetings to your folks.
