Ann Fannon Thoele moved to Elmhurst at age five and started school at the Old Field School that was located where City Hall now stands. She attended seventh and eighth grades at Hawthorne Junior High School when the current elementary school functioned as Elmhurst’s middle school. Ann looks back at her York experience fondly. She participated in chorus, and with a radiant smile recalls that she had a lot of fun in high school.
