Please Lord bless this family and give them the strength to overcome what is ahead. Ginger (La Rocque) Poitra (65) Ginger, I’ve noticed that your email box has not been functioning for the last while. I know you and Myron were class mates long before I joined the class of 65 in our freshman year. It was all part of my growing up process and now I respect this even more. Myron your family will be remembered in my prayer’s, so you can make it through this terrible loss you are feeling. This includes when we were young (my cousins and I) and she would dole out the discipline as needed. Never was there a time when I thought she was mean or uncaring.
She is survived by her husband, Clarence of Dunseith; daughters, Shonda Azure of Minot and Shannon Azure of Grand Forks; sons Cody Azure and Jason Azure both of Grand Forks; a grandson, Chris Scott of Minot; sisters, Debbie Marmon of Miles City MT and Toni Gredesky of Fairmount, ND; a brother, Duane Morinville of Dunseith Right now we are attempting to grasp the loss of my Aunt Shirley, or ‘Snookie’ as she was known to all of us.As Ron said though, her age and the severity of this acute illness was just more than anyone could overcome. Thanks to those who have called and written with their condolences. I carry messages with me all day and in idle moments [read hours] a thought long forgotten springs to mind. Schwab our neighbor across the street sprang to mind this week.He had come striding out his back screen door with a pair of leather gloves and said that we should use them to handle the feisty squirrel we had caught and that he advised release soon; “Wild creatures should live free.” Harriet Schwab was a frail beauty by then, perhaps 1947/48, but often at her window or door way checking on the local noise makers.I read in the early issues Turtle Mt Times of Marchand Lumber of Rolla wanting to open a yard in Dunseith. Edna Leonard put me on the trail of Montague/Monty Schwab his son, back in the 80’s.There is always that shaky moment of loss, but I recall John sitting behind me in one of the basement classrooms.
John had waited for a quiet moment during a study period; he sat right behind me.

When the folks owned the Gas Station in town, I remember Duane & Russell were always playing jokes on Bev. She was the type of person many folks can only wish they could be.
One time, they sent her to the Hardware Store to get a left-handed monkey wrench. And, she would use the word “ish-ka-bibble” alot!!! I really don’t think I ever believed illness could take her from us. I cannot begin to express how thankful I am for the contact with idols and friends of my childhood and youth.
I did not do well introducing Victor to everyone, but he wandered around and taking pictures that he knew I would treasure.
