Annie and Jim Lipuma visit

Annie & Jim Lipuma

Cousins Annie and Jim Lipuma

On September 10, 2011, cousins and former Quarry School students Annie (Lipuma) Voigt and Jim Lipuma took a trip down memory lane and through the old schoolhouse. Jim’s brother Jerry and sister Jeanette also attended Q.S., as did cousins Johnny, Beverly, and Sammy. Jim’s dad, John, was a foreman at Waukesha Lime & Stone during the 1950s. The family lived directly across the street from the school and was the first to have indoor running water. Annie’s family lived in one of the houses north of the school.

Jim attended Q.S. from 1950 until 1956 or ’57. Hearing this, and having been born in 1955, I assumed we hadn’t met, but Jim assured me we had. He remembers infant me clasping his finger. Some 55 years later, I pulled his finger in a hilarious reenactment.

Many thanks to Jim’s wife, Linda, for taking and sharing photos and for showing interest in our reminiscing about the way things used to be. ~ Joy Buslaff

  1. We had a wonderful time at the old school with Joy and her husband.
    Its is amazing at what changes have come to Waukesha.
    Its hard to believe that the two lane road became a boulivard,and it goes right over the old house we rented from the Quarry.
