Cape Central High Photos

Ken Steinhoff, Cape Girardeau Central High School Class of 1965, was a photographer for The Tiger and The Girardot, and was on the staff of The Capaha Arrow and The Sagamore at Southeast Missouri State University. He worked as a photographer / reporter (among other things) at The Jackson Pioneer and The Southeast Missourian.

Come here to see photos and read stories (mostly true) about coming of age in Southeast Missouri in the 1960s.

Please comment on the articles when you see I have left out a bit of history, forgotten a name or when your memory of a circumstance conflicts with mine. (My mother says her stories have improved now that more and more of the folks who could contradict her have died off.) Your information helps to make this a wonderful archive and may end up in book form.


Softball Trophy Winners

Softball c 1965This group won a softball trophy in 1965, but I couldn’t read the trophy to see what place it was. I recognize Sally Wright second from left in the front row and Yvonne Askew third from left in the second row. A couple other faces look familiar, but I’m not going to make a guess.

    Back row center is Ann Hodges and she was in the class of 1963 The girl between Ann and the guy looks like Helen Flentge or Dianne Bremmerman also class of 63. That is all the help I can give you. Happy New Year and always look forward to your pics and stories!

    On the back row is Diane Bremermann ’63 second from left and Ann Hodges ’63 third from left. Front row second from left is Sally Wright ’66 and third from left Mary McBride ’63. Second row third from left is Yvonne Askew ’65. This must be a city sponsored team since Central High School did not have any girls’ sports in the 1960’s.

    Front row left is Marki DeGuire; she later married Bill Springer.

  • Randy Johnson

    Keith, Marki is right. However, there was a girl named Marki Deguire in the CHS class of 72 that you may be thinking of for Marki Springer’s maiden name.

  • Diane Bremermann

    Yes, that’s me second from the right, on the other side of Ann Hodges I think might be Jill Upton. What a blast from the past!

  • Sheila Hopkins Phillips

    Yes, Annnie Hodges is third from left standing.

    Dianne Bremermann is the second from the left top row

    Front row, far left, is Marki McMullen; later married to Bill Springer. Marki attended what was then Cape Catholic High School.
