Minnie and Miss Fleck

Here is little Minnie Rossow's third-grade report card, from the 1905-06 school year:

On the back, William Rossow duly signed his daughter's report card every month.

Minnie's teacher was Anne Fleck. We have her portrait from 1907, as a member of the Old Maids' Basket Ball Team:

Anne (or Anna) was born in 1885, so she was about 20 years old when she taught Minnie. Per the Indiana Marriage Collection, in 1916 she married Alfred G. Ingram (the same year her brother, John, married Daisy Raschka). Sadly, it seems that Anne Fleck Ingram died in her thirties. She rests in Crown Hill Cemetery.
