Can somebody please identify the three ladies in the foreground of the picture?
Based on the previous posts I think it might be the following people standing left to right.
Pat Jack (deceased), Jane Patience (nee Mackay & daughter of Babs Mackay) and Vi Jack gala queen 1961?
Pat and Jane really look alike to me or maybe it is because their hair styles are so similar looking.
Is Pat Jack and Pat Swanson who contributed this photo the same person?
This picture was one of the collection of pictures that appeared when I searched for the surname "PATIENCE".
Incidentally, my mother's ancestors were PATIENCE, MORE, JUNOR and REID from Avoch, Ross-shire or R&C, Scotland who immigrated to Oxford Co., Ontario, Canada in about 1848.
Always glad to correspond with anybody from there anytime to see if we might be connected.
