Remembering the Past: St. Mary’s Class Of 1933

By Diane Norek Harrison

SOUTH AMBOY–South Amboy turns 100 years old as a city in May-1908-2008. Here is the graduating Class of 1933 from St. Mary’s High School: There were 54 members of this graduating class. A few of the class member names are missing and some names may be misspelled, as old material is sometimes hard to read.

Miss Marie Rose Jerome was the first honor student and graduated Summa Cum Laude, “with highest honors.”

Class members were: John Albanese, Margaret Bahnken, Ethel Baranowski, Mary Theresa Baranowksi, Anthony Burczky, Gerald Butler, James Coan, Gertrude Colucci, Katherine Connors, Margaret Coughlin, Leo Dohan, Mary Dowling, Thomas Fitzmorris, Edward Fleming, Elizabeth Francy, Alice Gleason, Bernard Hensberger, Ruth Humpreys, Marie Jerome, Cecelia Kaczmierska, Mary Kronemeyer, Edward Kuc, Mary McCutcheon, John McCormick, Thomas McKeon, John McNeary, Michael Midura, Genevieve Neff, Sigmund John Norek, Cecelia Nycz, John O’Neill, Louis Ploskonka, Edward Powers, Monica Powers, Margaret Pribula, Marie Rehbein, Richard Ryan, Sophie Savitsky, Robert Schull, Madonna Simanek, Eileen Simmons, Herman Smith, Beatrice Sullivan, John Sutliff, Alphonsus Tedesco, Carmelita Tedesco, Kathleen Travinsky, Helen Warga, Carroll Wolff, Jr., George Wall and Ignaius Zrecieb.

In 1933, South Amboy schools graduated 202 students: 54 graduated from St. Mary’s High School, 76 pupils from St. Mary’s Grammar School, 37 from Sacred Heart Grammar School and 35 from South Amboy High School.

Have any school memories or past material from any school for the towns I write about? I look forward to seeing it!

If you have your own memories or past material from Carteret, Edison, Metuchen, Perth Amboy, Sayreville, South Amboy or Woodbridge you can email me at or send “copies” of your material to me in care of this newspaper.
