Modale Girls - Class of 1946, Identification
Identification contributed by Don Coffin. He writes, "I was looking on the web for photos of Modale and came across the posted photo of Jean Vittitoe and classmates. I was in Jean's graduating class (1946), and 6 of the ladies shown were my classmates. The other two (Alice John and Betty Rief) graduated a year later in 1947. These ladies look just as I remember them. I left for college after I graduated and never returned to Modale or saw any of these folks again."
Ella Spracklin Arbaugh's home
Photo contributed by Dave Anderson. He writes, "Here's a home in Modale that was Ella Spracklin Arbaugh's
home when she returned to Iowa from Idaho after her husband, John T. Arbaugh passed
away. She lived there from around 1911 to 1945. It still stands across
from the old Modale School and is in pretty good shape."
