Looking Back with Lindie

In looking back, concerning the Livingston homemakers and mothers who were crowned as Mrs. Montanas, I have since learned that Betty (Juhnke) Brewer is still around! She’s the only one of the six queens still alive. She is soon to be 92 years young and still looks and carries herself like a beauty queen!

An interesting side note is that Betty was one of Livingston’s women who did not live in that one block radius, as did Elizabeth Parriott, Diana Boom, and Bev Bakkum.

I grew up in the same neighborhood as this trio of women. I was aware of them as a young girl growing up in the 60s. My apologies to Betty (who is also a personal friend of mine), for not acknowledging her as still living from the 60’s queen era in the prior article. Her legacy continues!
