Mary sent the card below with a picture of her on the right and another student at St. Thomas Hospital on the left to
her Aunt, Anna Feldhaus Sutter . The card is hard to read, but I believe it contains the following:
Mrs. Anna Sutter
Dear Aunt – I haven’t written to you in awhile and I hope
you are alive and well. I’m sending you one of my pictures. I guess you know which one is me, the one on the right. Class
and lectures have begun & keep me busy studying.
Answer soon. From your loving niece, Mary Feldhaus
Mary was the first female lab technician in Nashville. About 1940 she married John Dewey Bledsoe who died shortly
thereafter. Mary lived on General Bate Drive off Woodmont Avenue just west of where I-65 eventually was located.
was a frequent visitor to Lawrenceburg as I was growing up. That's Aunt Mary on the left and Aunt Rose on the
right in the picture above with the title "Mary and Rose"
She liked to drive an automobile a long time. I remember
a circa 1949 Ford coupe that she drove well into the 1960s.
After she retired, she continued to live at her home until
finally she entered a Catholic retirement home in Owensboro, Kentucky. She pased away there and was buried at the family
plat in Lawrenceburg.
