|KINDERGARTEN AT LOWELL ELEMENTARY
Thanks to Bill Tobin for another great picture.
Can you help fill in the blanks (Bill & Judy Wilson Jones did their best) ....
1st Row: Unknown, Mike Carlson, Unknown, Unknown, Unknown,
Row: Carol Hansted , Unknown, Tina Christensen, Susie Arnold (confirmed by Susie) Peggy Wimperly (?) Sharon Beckett
3rd Row: Shirley Griffith,
Don Gould, Mac Bock, Unknown, Unknown, Dave Ellithorpe
Bill's mom wrote that he was second from the right in the
first row, but he does not think that is the case.
9/8/15 UPDATE: Thanks
to Sue Watts Ertl for this added information: I
can fill in a few blanks on the first photo (Lowell Elementary): First row: 3rd, to right of Mike Carlson, blond,
is yours truly (Sue Watts). Last boy in first row, I believe, is Pat McCannish (my first crush). I'm not
sure I spelled his name correctly. The teacher was Miss Shiff. Second row: Yes, that is Carol
Hansted in the glasses. Possibly Jane Whitten next? Between Susie Arnold and Sharon Beckett is Kay Strong.
I do not recognize the name Peggy Wimperly. She may have been in our class, but I don't remember her at all and I
just asked my mom (still sharp at 99) if she remembered her and she said no. She did recognize many of the others.
I hope that helps...
Bill Tobin sent this picture taken in 1950 at a Nursery
School called Mrs. Saul's. Bill grew up in Belmont Shore and presumably many of these kids went on to Lowell,
Rogers and Wilson. With several detectives offering up clues (a huge thanks to Judy Wilson Jones for filling in a LOT
of blanks) we think that those pictured are ...
Front row – Cynthia Geizer (NOT Connie Kaylor Judy insists),
Unknown, Unknown, Nancy Nutter, Pam Rose, Ed Perry, Unknown
2nd row – Craig Daugherty, Tom Morlock, “JP” John Crosby, Marsha Harris,
Unknown, Unknown, Unknown
3rd row: Terry Thorpe, Unknown, Unknown, Ed Bragg, Bill Murphy, Valerie
Boyer, Susie Davidson
4th row: Unknown, Lee Faries, unknown, unknown, Judy Wilson,
unknown, Bill Tobin
Update - this just in! Lee Faries Ostendorf has identified that cutie
2nd from left, back row - as Lee Faries. She remembers that Mrs. Saul's institution of lower learning was called the
Peppermint Playhouse - Life was simpler then - and said "There were a lot of wiggle worms and strange expressions in
that picture. Judy's was one of the best." (Webmistress Note - I think had I been Mrs. Saul, I would have not
messed with Judy Wilson.)

....and Don Singleton who supplied most of the names in
the sixth grade pictures (although we had a real good start on that one.) Thanks again to Bill Tobin for sharing these
treasures - Here is our version of Who's Who !Front row – Peggy Wimperly, Kathy
Osborn, Ken Lundgren, possibly Carla Borg or maybe Sherri Beebe (?), Kathy Clayton, Mike Carlson, Don Singleton, Bill Tobin,
Don Gould 2nd row – Jane Whitten,
Francie Granau, Bob Chrisman, Connie Kaylor, Susie Bailey, Sharon Beckett, Kathy Sams, Tony Duarte, Corky Severson, Ray Richards 3rd row

Merithew, Larry Fosholt 4th row

Barbara Richards Apparently
absent that day, but not forgotten – Dave Ellithorpe, Joanne Knowles, and Lynn Hoodecheck
OK, let's try this kindergarten one ... Mr. Bob Chrisman states that the
following can be found in the picture - Tony Duarte, Bill Tobin, Susie Bailey, Connie Kaylor, Mac Bock, and Corky Severson.
As well as Mr. Bob Chrisman. Click to enlarge the picture and start putting your specific guesses on the Bruin Den.
Once again Don Singleton is brave enough to guess - he says:
Remember, I didn't arrive on the Lowell scene until Jr. 1st grade, so some
of these are "pure" guesses.
