BIG IDEAS, BIG STORIES, BIG MOUTH
My Website- check it!
I just read your blog about Sr. Concepta, which she was commonly known as, but we were drilled into saying, “MARY Concepta”. I must be a little older than you, as I graduated in ’64, and we wore dark green jumpers and hideous saddle shoes. Hideous because, in a family or 4 kids, sometimes those were our only pair of shoes, and try wearing them to church on Sundays with stockings.
I lived on East First Street, near Vernon Ave, and went to the White Leaf Cleaners. And was never one of the populars. We could have been friends.
Hi- I loved your comments- YOU are right! It was Sister Mary Concepta! By the time I was in 7th grade we were wearing the plaid- but I started with the green too. I loved the saddle shoes so much that I just bought a pair of saddle shoes- tan pony skin and patent leather. They are amazing.
Your name is so familiar to me- Did you have a sister/cousin- a female that might have been in my sister’s class. SHe was a couple of years behind me. Thank you for extending your kind comment. It means so much. And isn’t it strange that we’re this old so fast?
I have a sister Darlene and a sister Eileen, both younger. And, although I graduated in ’64, I am holding at 43! You can be 43 as well! And how wonderful for your mom to be so strong. Moms always fight for their kids. You are blessed that she is yours.
Hello Arlene, let me introduce myself. Linda Wrobel Dudek, St. Brendan’s School Survivor, class of 1964. Brother Robert, 1969, sister, Nancy, 1970. Yesterday, in the mail, I receive an article from my Mom, who’s still in Clifton, about Sister Mary Concepta, written by Jack DeVries, in the Clifton Merchant. All the good and bad memories just pouring back! So, I Googled, Sister Concepta, and I found your Blog, just loved it. Susan Loikith, if she see’s this, just want to thank her for letting me copy her math answers in church. And Carolynn Sellarole, if you’re still on Cape Cod, I want her to know my sister, found the headstone of Bethia Nickerson, 1806, in Clifton. She’ll know who I’m talking about. She is bringing it to the Nickerson Family, in June. Also Arlene, did you attend the Alumni party back in 1993?
Those who learned in fear stick together! Glad I could have been of help!
