Myrtle Lowthian and Everett had grown up together. She recalled taking her father his lunch down 101 steps to the waterfront near their home at 14th Street and Hoyt Avenue. She also recalled going to Washington School, attending Central School in eighth grade, and buying tickets for the (nonexistent) elevator at Everett High School.
