Loose Creek parishioners share “Voices from the Past”
Pauline Bescheinen was excited to attend Immaculate Conception parish’s second “Voices from the Past” cemetery tour.
It brought back happy memories of friends and neighbors for the lifelong Loose Creek parishioner, who is 98.
The Sept. 29 tour drew history enthusiasts and friends of the parish to the old cemetery behind Immaculate Conception School, with headstones dating back to the mid-1800s.
Costumed reenactors in period dress shared stories about relatives and ancestors who are at rest under the soft earth. The event was a fundraiser supporting the parish’s 175th anniversary history book and celebration, which is set for Oct. 10, 2020.-Catholic Missourian
