I had Miss Barrett for third grade, 1952-53, but it was most likely not her. However, I did know Vernon (Buck) Holmes and Hubert Bailey and Joe Chandler. I may have known a few of the girls, but not by their maiden names. They we’re about the same age as my father, but he didn’t get to Pleasant View til a few years after this.
My cute Aunt Jetta Barker, front, 4th from right. Was such an elegant lady, a fantastic cook!
Veda Berrett taught school for 43 years and retired in 1963.
Allene Orton was one of my Dad's Sisters.
Ohhh. She was such a nice lady!!
just for fun
I had Miss Berrett for 3rd grade in the 1950’s. Pledge of Allegiance and Lord’s Prayer every morning. lovely!
I love their outfits! Their shoes and long socks didn’t look to comfortable! Amazing picture!

Edith Orth (1882-1958) studied music in Ireland and played for the Queen of England. She left her family and immigrated to Utah in 1915. She married Phillip L. Orth in 1918 and moved to North Ogden in 1923. Edith was sustained as ward organist, a position she held for 35 years. She walked almost a mile to the LDS church each Sunday. Many children were taught piano lessons by Edith. ... See MoreSee Less
I remember my mother Norma Berrett Garner talking about her piano teacher Mrs Orth
I sure remember her, she would walk everywhere. My Brother Ed took Piano lessons from her… she was always so intriguing, wish I had known her better.
I remember her, I took lessons from her.
I can picture her at the organ every Sunday morning in church! Great memories!
She taught my mother to play the organ. Mom loved Mrs. Orth.
My husband also took piano lessons from her! He has great memories of her musical talent. He remembers her telling him that the fire Marshall warned her that if her home ever caught fire, it would be completely gone in 10 minutes! Her home was in the hollow where the North Ogden Dog Park is now located!
Our neighbor at the end of the lane
Thank you ‘North Ogden Historical Society for your entry about Mrs Orth. I also certainly remember her and my piano lessons from her. (I’m sorry they didn’t stick). It wasn’t Sunday without her at the organ
Great memories 👍😊
The road is getting new pavement on 400 East in the early 1950s. Granny's Pantry can be seen at the left of the roller and Buck Holmes Station is on the other side. An early 1950s DeSoto is driving south! ... See MoreSee Less
