(Blue arrow pointing to Jeanne)

Jeanne attended St. Luke's Grade School in the building on Summit Avenue until the 8th grade. For 8th grade, she
was transferred to the new St. Luke's Grade School next to the church. She then attended Our Lady of Peace High School
in the same building which was previously the grade school. Thus, she went to school in the same building for 12 years.

The building that housed Our Lady of Peace High School is now the William Mitchell College of Law.
