Stella Schimetz 90th Birthday Celebration
Posted by Kathy Schimetz Wood (’72): Minot, ND
My mom will be celebrating her 90th birthday on October 13th! Sadly, we cannot gather with her, as a family, to celebrate, due to covid. Mom absolutely loves getting cards! She reads them, saves them, then reads them again. If you know my mom and want to help us flood her room with cards, here is her address:

MY MOM-THE SCHOOL COOK
Mom cooked at the Dunseith School for 32 years. She loved it! Today, I posted about her upcoming 90th birthday. I’ve had requests for her PEANUT BUTTER BARS recipe, so here it is! Grease and flour or spray a 13 x 18 pan Preheat oven to 350o. PEANUT BUTTER BARS 1 cup butter 1 cup sugar 1 cup brown sugar 4 eggs 1 cup peanut butter 2 1/2 cups flour 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon vanilla 1/2 teaspoon salt semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional)
2 lbs hamburger
2 large onions chopped
at least 1/2 a bunch of celery-chopped fine
Cook together and season with salt–about 2 teaspoons, pepper–about 1 teaspoon, and chili powder–at least 1 tablespoon. Adjust to your liking. That’s how Mom cooked—taste, then adjust!
In a stockpot-mix together and heat through:
About 1/2 can tomato juice. (large can)
2 cans red kidney beans
2 regular size cans tomato soup
1 large can of tomatoes
Add salt/pepper/chili powder to this too!
Add meat mixture to stockpot, simmer awhile—taste—-adjust seasoning to your liking. I add garlic to mine, but Mom didn’t-she didn’t use much garlic in her cooking. If you like it, add it! Add more tomato juice if chili is too thick.
Amy Gunville’s passing / Obituary

Gary and Friends of Dunseith Alumni,
I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Amy Gunville, whom I’ve known, first as a child and as an adult,
She was a wonderful little girl who grew into a powerfully strong woman.
I recall Amy as an respectful to adults and her peers while she was a student at Dunseith School Elementary School.
She and her brother Mike were both former students whom I enjoyed greatly as third grader’s.
Years later, whilst at Bottineau School I became reacquainted with Amy as a parent.
She was very supportive of education.
Amy, a warm friendly person always greeted with a smile upon meeting.
And after a pleasant visit, she’d leave behind in her wake ……. a warm glow of positivity.
Sincere sympathy to her immediate and extended family.
Her parents who were my former Dunseith classmates. (her mom, Sandra rode my school bus).
Her (big) brother Mike.
Her children. (She was supportive of each of you, your education and uplifting of your individual personalities and ability)
God Bless the memory of Amy Gunville and her spirit

Hi Gary I am sorry I haven’t written to you about my sister Joyce passing. It has just been so hard. I still cannot believe that she is gone.

Verdy Richard Larson (DHS ‘49) Memories
Posted by Vickie Metcalfe (70): Dunseith, ND
Gary and friends,
Verdy Richard Larson was always kind and helpful whenever, where ever I met her.
She would always ask me and talk fondly of her lifelong friend , Alice Metcalfe.
She’d often tell me, t how they worked together at Hosmer dept. store and enjoyed many fun times together.
Like Verdy, Alice, throughout her life, carried a positive attitude, was optimistic, carried a fun sense of humor
and held in high regard family and friends.
Thanks for igniting that fond memory.

Gary and Friends, My mom Bernice Olson Johnson is the third one from the left (#3) in Cheryl Dakin’s picture of the ‘girls’ of Dunseith in 1949. I think (#1) is Patsy Sunderland. It sure looks like her to me. Thanks Gary! Dick
