ORGANISTS
Of the early-day organists who played the reed organ, Carrie Thrall and her
sister Lula are the ones remembered best.
Who first played the piano bought in 1914 is lost to memory, but as a young
girl in the 1950's, Loretta Bohn was one of the faithful musicians at the
piano and later at the new Hammond spinet organ in 1952.
Later Ruth Westover was organists, assisted by several young recruits, among
them Joan Knapwurst and Cheri and Adair Harrison.  In the 1970's Mrs. Dorothy
Kafer of Eureka assisted on alternate Sundays.
Mrs. Sherry Carlson was the first to play the new piano purchased about 1978.
 Sherry at the piano with Mrs. Marie Stone at the organ cooperated to fill
the church with music on some Sundays.  The present organist at the new Baldwin
electric organ purchased in 1985 is Mrs. Stone.  When she is absent, Miss
Michelle Paulson is organist.
