    I have seen this woman before in other pics – I have worked in CS for 35 years in the FAC, many local schools and colleges, Manitou Historical Society/Miramont Castle – she looks familiar – Do you know if she is from here? – and where did you find this CS? Manitou? Woodland Park? colorado college?

  2. Noel Black says:

    I think she lived here for a time. This is from the Pikes Peak Library District’s site and all the other information I dug up (thought I didn’t do a lot of digging) on my own.

    Hello,
    Feel free to conact me and I will share what I know about her. I conducted and estate sale a few years ago and I learned about her then. Regards, Rebecca Nohe
