Driving thru your town on Monday nite I saw your sign and wondered if my Grandfather Leo Martin Finnegan Sr who was a funeral director in Minot North Dakota in the 1920s to the late 1940s is possibily related to the person behind the Finnegan name. My Grandfather was from Minnesota and was traveling to I believe Cutbank to work but got off the train in Minot saw my Grandmother and never left. My Mother is 89 and when I told her she wanted me to check as she is the last member of her family.You can contact me by email @ if this is a possability. Thank you for your time. Sincerely, Judy Steinhadt daughter of Margaret Ellen Finnegan Penne

My family had a terrible experience at the J Allen Hooper Funeral Home. Calls and e-mails were rarely returned, even to answer the most simple questions. The person helping us actually complained to us that he was overworked. My grandmother looked terrible at the viewing and the makeup was literally cracking off of her hands. I know it was not "her" but we ended up deciding to close the casket because they did such a terrible job. I would avoid this one at all costs.

So sorry to hear about Mae, I loved her. She was a dear friend and colleague at the bowling alley. Don'y forget that she also was a member of the Portsmouth Women's Bowling Assn. Hall of Fame.
