The Pontinens and the story of ...

John and his family

This is the only photo I have a John and Judy. I'm not sure where it came from but I think Bill may have sent it to Mom and Dad and she forwarded it to me.

According to information I found on the web, John was a 1989 graduate of St. Scholastica College

They are both gone, now. I wish I didn't have to start with the ending ... But I might as well get it out of the way. John's obit is below and I just recently found Judy's obit online (posted under John's) while searching for info about my grandfather.

John Russel Pontinen, 77 of Maplewood died on Aug. 30, 2006 of leukemia. He will be deeply missed by his wife, Judy (Angell, Cayo) Pontinen; daughters, Pamela Saenger, Penny (Bob) Feneis; son, Peter (Kim) Pontinen; 5 grandchildren; Judy's children and grandchildren; Michelle (Cayo) & Richard Davis of Duluth, Jacqueline (Cayo) & Tim Picek of Cook and Tim & Denise Cayo of St. Michaels, Minn. Judy was married to Jake Cayo.
