[1958 Confirmation Class]

Description:

Photograph of the 1958 confirmation class and their pastor gathered for a group picture inside a church. Behind them, inside a small alcove is a statue of Jesus Christ with hands outspread in front of him looking down.
They are all wearing formal attire. The boys wear two-piece suits and the girls are in light-colored dresses. They all have corsages pinned to their chests.
From left to right, they have been identified as:

Top row: Harold Smith, Ronnie Dippel, David Hildpold, Lilburn Shulty (possibly), and Pastor Jespersen.

Bottom row: Gendra Bram (possibly), Marilyn Thaysen, Beverly Waldman, and "Mike" Brodsgaard.

These names are also hand-written on the back of the photograph in black ink.
