Two pioneer-ladies visited Tumbler Ridge last week. (l-r) Susanne Peters and Margarette Benner worked in the first post office in Tumbler Ridge. Susanne?s family was the seventh family in Tumbler Ridge and Susanne became the first postmistress in our Community.
Children of both ladies graduated in Tumbler Ridge before the families moved away. Susanne Peters lives now in Charlottetown, PEI and Margarette lives in 100 Mile House, BC.
Both ladies were pleasantly surprised with Tumbler Ridge 2008. This was their first visit since their left in 1989 and 1992. The Tumbler Ridge shirt is a souvenir Susanne took home. ?I will be back? she said.
