I feel drawn to the spirit of this site, Helen Moyle Truman phoned me to tell me to get with it!!
I grew up on Wavell St. in Creighton Mine, but left when I was in grade 9 as I recall, but all of these names certainly resonate in my mind..I was Teresa Coyle , my Dad was a policeman and I had three sisters:
Colleen [now in Ottawa and a grandmother of 5]
Ann [currently in Sudbury and the Grandmother of 1]
Trudy [also in Sudbury and a grandmother of 3]
My brother Frank lives in Burlington [a Grandfather of 2].
I am the eldest, I trained as a nurse and worked at the General for some time. As a matter of fact Ms Black died on my medical wing some time ago..for sure, as I have been married for 37 years and lived in California before marriage.
I recall so many of these names and it would be great just to hear how we all made out in life. I have heard from Lorraine Gallagher, Marlene Moore, and of course Helen..
I recall teenagers , it was a dance really, that was supervised
by various parents and we had a wicked time, the Copper Cliff kids came and our world just seemed so much larger with them. In retrospect Creighton did give us a very safe childhood, in spite of the mighty battles that constantly erupted, we could all be mediators to-day!!!
I would love to hear from Audrey Loupelle, Bev Murphy, Stuart Smith, George Stanley etc.
My dad Frank is 97 yrs old & will spend part of the winter with us in Toronto this year...I hope I inherited his genes!
A BIG HELLO to Irene Gallagher, and kudos to Audrie for this!
