Family of Joanne Slethaug Knutson Updated January 27, 2003
About Our Family Research
My family mainly lived in the area of Kalispell, Montana. We used to get together with the Slethaug side on Thanksgiving at my great aunt, Belinda's. For Christmas Day we would get together at my grandmother's, Margaret Ecklie Slethaug. For Easter, we would go to my grandmother's other sister, Gertie. Several times we got together with my Mom's side of the family on Christmas Eve. My family was centered around family. We would spend Sundays with my dad's family at his brother Olanders. We liked to go out there to the farm to see my grandparents and uncle's family. The kids used to play tag, hide and seek in the barn and games in the house. These are some of the memorable times growing up. We were still in the time when the families didn't move so far away, and we could get together more often than modern families do now.
