I found this picture in my deceased Mom's files and was wondering if anyone out there.knows anything about it. I believe it to be a class at Coop Elementary in the early 1950's. Does anyone recognize themselves or siblings? How about the teacher?

#4194  William Cain, I don't recognize the teacher! 
I thought it may be Mrs. Baker, E.R. Coop's kindergarten teacher that taught generations! 
And, the students look older than kindergarten.

Magdelyne Almquist (Wages) (1965)

Yes,  William I am in the picture (third girl to left of teacher with ribons in her hair).
Don't remember the teachers name, but want to think it was first grade.  Thanks so much for sharing it with all of us.  Good ole Coop those were the days.
Who else do we know on this picture?

William Cain My sister Barbara Culpepper is on the top row. She was born 1946. I dont know the year of this pic. She graduated 1965 from Sam Houston. If its Coop elementary then this was kindergarten or 1st grade. Barbara is second from right top row. We moved to pinewood village when I was 3 or 4 1953/4.

Magdelyne Almquist (Wages) (1965)

That most definately is Coop.  William is that you on the middle row in front of the teacher?

I also see Kathleen Gibbons, Fran Doolan, Annette Luck, Judy Blackman, and I believe 

Earnest Carr.

Kathy #4197,  I remember when you lived on Turner.  Barbara and I were friends and played together.  My heart was broken when you moved  to Pinewood Village.  I think of her often and wondered how she was doing.

Mary #4199. My Dad delivered me in that house on Turner dr. I dont know the number but would love to see it, if still standing. My beautiful sister Barbara Culpepper died in 2003 of breast cancer at 56 yrs old

William Cain - would it be ok with you if I shared this picture on the Sam Houston 1965 class Facebook page? And, to those who commented with names and where the person is located in the photo, may I put that info in, too? If you are on FB, and not a member of the page, especially those within 3 years of  the1965 class, feel free to ask to join (on FB).

Mary DE Lois Finch (Brown) (1960)

Kathy, #4200   I remember when you were born.  Barbara was so excited.  I am so sorry to hear about Barbara's passing.  Some of my best memories were of our times together.   We lived at 1922 Turner.  You lived across the street and 2 housed down toward Westfield. Now there is a road crossing Turner that runs beside the property.  I have not been by in some time so I am not sure if your house is still standing.  My daughter is a breast cancer surviver.  I wear pink every Friday in her honor...I will honor Barbara as well.

Marilyn Maniscalco (Henley) (1965)

William Cain, thank you. Yes, please email the original photo, even before you get all the names. I posted my email address to your profile area. You may already have it, though. I will post it on the 1965 Facebook page and share the names already known. Our classmates love trying to identify people in these photos, so I may get even more for you. I’ll email those to you. Thank you.

Kathy Culpepper (Gunderson) (1968)

Mary #4207. Thank you so much for the remembrance of my sister. It's nice to know someone out there still remembers when.I think I will take a drive to Turner Dr. And take a walk on memory lane.

01/18/19 08:14 AM #4214    

Kathy Culpepper (Gunderson) (1968)

Mary #4207. And God bless you and your daughter. I will keep you both in my prayers. I love this site. It is beautiful to reach out and touch our past.

01/18/19 10:07 AM #4215    


Mary DE Lois Finch (Brown) (1960)

Kathy #4214  I agree that touching the past is good.  It is what makes us who we are in the present.  Let me know what you see.  Last time I drove down Turner, it had changed so much, I almost missed my house. Do you still live on the north side?  I have lived in Willis for the last 20 years.   I am still working in the Houston Medical Center (40 years).  Thinking about retirement!


01/18/19 05:58 PM #4216    

Kathy Culpepper (Gunderson) (1968)

Mary 4215. Yes I'm in Spring for 40 years. Retired. Remarried almost 20 years. Awesome you are still working. My best friend lives in Willis. Nice area.
