"IWA 1944"

In the process of helping my parents move, I found some photos from my mother Geraldine's high school days at Incarnate Word Academy in Houston, Texas.  Here is one of them, labeled on the back with all the girls' maiden names and the words "IWA 1944":

Top row, left to right:  Dorothy Jean Gorman Kerkman Bickers (1928-2011), Marjorie Ann Hays Olson (1928-2011), Geraldine Margaret Guokas Pape, Dorothy Rose Rush Johns (born 1928), and Rosalie Marian Triola Zenner (born 1926).

Bottom row, left to right:  Vera Hope Barbosa Stowell, Shirley Patricia Hogan O'Brien (born 1928), Catherine Emma Holderman Williamson Dobecka (1927-2010), Miriam Catherine Jamail Perkins (1927-2004), and Katherine (or Catherine or Kathryn) Stringer.

Interestingly, Mom's classmate Vera Barbosa Stowell has a daughter named Cindy who was my classmate at St. Agnes Academy in Houston.
