New Central High School, Minneapolis, Minnesota - 1913

Bill Finnerty and Margeret Larson

My parents, Bill Finnerty and Margaret Larson, both graduated the class of 1947. I found your website this evening, and wanted to update you on their passing. My Dad passed away on June 23, 1976, in Cody, Wyoming as a result of a plane crash that he was piloting. Our family was living in Braham, Minnesota at the time; he died in Wyoming because he flew my younger sister and me out to Yellowstone Park for a camping trip. Mom and the other six kids stayed home. Also, my dear mother Margaret Larson Finnerty Rydberg, who remarried three years after the loss of her beloved Bill, passed away on August 26, 2005 at her home in Pine City, Minnesota from cancer.

Thanks for your time, and please let me know if there’s any more information you’d like to have from me in regards to my dear parents.

With much sincerity-
