Thanks to Olga Baro Miller for identifying Diamonti, Bandujo and Covey and to Liz for identifying them also plus Trendle, Carroll, Bourassa, Schlaudecker, and Kennedy.

If you can identify any of the unidentified ladies please let us know the names and where they are in the photo (row and position from the left). Thank you.

My name was Elmary Cerunda and I was in the 1st Graduation class. I can give you a few names for our picture... 2nd row from top, 3rd from left: Eleanor Cerunda; 5th from left: Patricia Ferguson; 7th from left: Carla ? Sad to say I can't recall the other names. I assume you know the teachers and sisters names: Mr. Silva, grade 6. Mother Francesca, Sister Perpetua..... Thanks for doing this. It brought back some great memories. I owe IC a lot... Hope all who read this are doing well.

Mert, thank you for the corrections which I have made to the description. I should have caught the error regarding Lillian "Chip" Trendel because I remember her and of course I remember Sarah. Thank you for your comments regarding my efforts towards the site; it's a labor of love. : )

Lillian "Chip" Trendel is the last person on the right in the third row, she is next to my sister Sarah Carroll who is the 14th person. Don, you did an amazing job and continue too, putting all these memories out there for all to see.

Inez, I hope you find Peggy. Her family lived on NW 110th Street (W. 56th Place on the south side of the same street) in the county section a block east of where I grew up. I was deeply infatuated with her and her older sister Judy back in the late 1950's and I thought they were beautiful. I lost track of them in the early 60's when I transferred over to Palm Springs Junior in 1960 instead of finishing eighth grade at ICS. Which Sears did y'all work at, Northside or Westland and what years?

Looking for Peggy Rizzuto from Immaculate, class of 63. She went to Msgr. Pace, class of 67. Her first married name was Zeit. They divorced and she married Greg Little. Last address was in Hollywood. Her parents lived in Miami Lakes. If anyone knows how to reach her, have them email me @ We went to school together @ Pace, worked @ Sears and stayed friends for many yrs., then lost touch.

I remember when they placed the statue of Mary and being photographed here many times. She isn't here in '61 but is in the next pic in '63, so it must have been '62 she was placed. Larry Thompson
