Isabel Henderson

"Imagine my surprise when I saw the picture of my class at Sciennes, taken in 1954.

I chummed with Isabel Henderson, also in the photograph.  I'd love to hear about her or from her.  She lived on Moncrieff Terrace.

Thank you for the memories."

Message for Elaine Dueck Forrest

Hi Elaine.  I've received an email from Isabel Lunn (née Henderson) who remembers you as a childhood friend and would like to contact you again.  She has not been able to contact you by email.

Can you please email me to give me your latest email address, then I'll pass it on to her?    Thank you.
