Photo Number 1785

This is another graduation photo from Verniel.
Haattaja gal maybe Verniel
Verneil thinks this gal might be part of the Haataja family.  We are looking for a gal that was born about 1930 or 1931.
This is probably a graduation photo from 1948 or 1949 1947 Rex Mc Donald was the photographer in Wadena Minnesota. 
Thanks for stopping by.

This photo went Full Circle 106 on February 3 2015


  1. Such pretty gals from MN. It reminded me of a good friend I had in college that I lost touch with from Blue Earth, MN. I can't even remember her name now but I can see her in my mind like it was yesterday. Is that senility coming on? She was also a very pretty gal....I think it's the Scandanavian influence?

  2. Haataja seems to be spelled with only one "t" in most places.

    Laila Svea nee Yliniemi Haataja (Oct. 17, 1938 - Apr. 15, 2002 in Menahga, Wadena County, MN) Find A Grave Memorial# 29587531 might be a link for you.

    I see an Elise Violet Haataja (1931) and Marie E (c. 1931), also a Maria, Find A Grave Memorial# 95569990 seems possible.

    Elise is Find A Grave Memorial# 95569990.

    1. Yes I must have misspelled it! Thanks! I found a Shirley Ann Haataja Birth: Dec. 18, 1929
      Death: Dec. 14, 2005

    2. ELSIE V. Haataja
      MAR. 7, 1931
      SEPT. 7, 1980 is a posibility.

  3. She's one of those people you can easily imagine her laugh as she interacted with friends. Going for a ride in an old car, perhaps getting to sit in the rumble seat, as they head out for a summer picnic and swim.

  4. This is Thelma's Graduation photo and I am mailing it off today to Lori in Minnesota.
