Condolences to the Shirley Belgarde family
From Vickie Metcalfe (’70): Bottineau, ND
Gary and Dunseith friends,,
I wish to express condolences of sympathy to the family of Shirley Belgarde.
Her siblings, twins, Melinda and Margaret were former classmates at Dunseith School.
The Belgarde girls were all kind, carried great smiles and sense of humor.
Also, I had the pleasure of Shirley’s daughter, Donna (Belgarde) Gunville in my third grade classroom.
It is always nice to visit with James and Donna, and hear and see the pride they have in their children.
I believe, Donna mentioned, one son recently graduated from Wapehton.
Sincerely, Vickie L. Metcalfe

Gary: Our condolences to the Brudwick family. We are sorry to learn of Gerald’s passing. My sister was married to Gerald’s brother, Kenneth.
A correction on Gary Metcalfe’s note on #458. The barn was built on the Lamb farm and then sold to Hans Johnson who moved it to his farm after Priscilla and Bill Lamb left the farm in 1955. ( Bill preferred selling insurance to farming.) Carl Wicks was my favorite uncle, a very kind man. He was not related to the other Wicks family though our family knew them very well.
Thank you for all your work. We enjoy hearing from you every day. Betty and Bill Lamb

Janice Striker (47) located:
Eileen Brudwick, with all of her ingenuity and knowledge, managed trace Janice’s marriage records and locate her. She is living in California. Eileen forwarded all this info she found to me hoping she had the right Janice. I left a message with Janice’s voice mail and several days later he daughter left a message with my voice mail letting me know that her mother is in dead the Janice Striker from Dunseith. Janice fell and broke her hip or pelvic bone and is currently convalescing in a nursing home. She gave me her mothers direct number in the home, but she has not been in her room when I’ve called. I will post a message letting you everyone know when do finely reach her.
Eileen, You do great work. Thank you so much for all that you do. Gary
