Where have all our children gone?

   This week’s Mystery Child was born and raised in southern California. She was married and raised three children in the Seattle area, then moved to New Jersey in the 70’s and got her nursing degree there. In 1990 she came to Orofino with her sister following her daughter and niece and their families. She currently continues to work as a volunteer one or more days a week.

   Can you guess this week’s Mystery Children?

   Last week’s Mystery Children were Mike and Mark Jackson.

   Mike has a son, Mickey Jackson and a daughter, Cheyenne Thornton. He is a grandpa to Gracelyn and Jackson Thornton. He still lives on Three Mile Rd.

   Mark lives in Lewiston with his wife, Angie; son, Dakota; and daughter, Michayla. He works at Roger’s Motors in the body shop.

   Terri Lashly was first to guess the identity of last week’s Mystery Children, stating that she also attended school at Timberline. Shirley Lutes, Faye Leto, Clairrene and Les Heywood, and Delores Watson also recognized the Jackson brothers.
