Unknown Graduate of Silver Cross Nursing School in Joliet, IL - Sept 1928

Unknown Graduate of Silver Cross Nursing School in Joliet, IL - Sept 1928

This was a friend of Viola Beatrice Rapson Welch in Nursing School. Possible first name Crystal.

Silver Cross Nursing School

I too have been trying to locate information about my mother, who is now deceased; but who attended Silver Cross Nursing School in the 1940's. My father must have dispensed of her school records; but I remember that she had done very well in her studies. She got very ill in 1950 right after childbirth and so for some reason I was never given anymore information as to whether she graduated from the nursing school or not.

My mothers' name was Mary Lucille Fullerton. When she married she became Mary Rinker.

If anyone can give me any information as to whether I can retrieve any type of records dating back to the 40's or whether my mom graduated from the school, I would greatly appreciate it so that I can share it with my own kids. My father chose to be estranged so it is very hard to get any information from him.
