This is a nice picture with three familiar faces for many Dunseith folks.
Jean Pladson, Ednamae (Abe) Nelson and Neola Kofoid Garbe.
Jean Pladson was a first cousin to me, brother Darrel (Bud) and the Morinville siblings.
Ednamae was Carlyle’s Sister. Their father was Abe Nelson.
Neola, You look so Happy, Cheerful and Smiley in this picture.

Patty Grossman (DHS Class of ’67) Passed away.
Posting from LeaRae Parrill Espe (’67):  Bottineau, ND

Sorry to have to report another death.

Patricia Grossman Colby Hazel  April 28, 1949 – December 28, 2020

Her full obituary in on the Thomas Family Funeral Home, Minot. Her funeral was live streamed on January 4, 2021. I was able to watch it and I believe it is still available.

Patty was in the Class of 1967 from Grades 3-11. Her father taught HS English at Dunseith during those years.  Mr. Ben Grossman was hired as principal in Velva in the fall of 1966.  Patty and (I believe) all her siblings graduated from Velva.

Her brothers Paul and Peter have lived in Hazen for many years. Both of them worked in the coal industry.  The youngest brother, Parrell Grossman, is a lawyer and has worked in the North Dakota Attorney General’s office as the head of the Consumer Affairs Division for a long time.  Whenever there is a scam going around, Parrell will be interviewed by the press to advise and warn the citizens of ND.


In response to Francine Gottbreht’s son about DHS annuals

In response to Francine Gottbreht’s son about DHS annuals, as far as I know there were never any annuals published during the 60s or before that. Maybe someone has more information, but the class of 1967 for sure did not have one.

My husband, Terry Espe, began his career teaching in Dunseith in 1968.
He has a few annuals from his teaching days, the earliest is 1970.
