Local Woman Shares Memories of John F. Kennedy

Posted: Updated:

Anyone who was alive 50 years ago remembers exactly where they were when the news of President John F. Kennedy's murder broke.

Anna Studencki from Great Falls shared her story.

"Well we were in school that day. I don't know if it came over the PA system or not, but we were told he had been killed. Everybody was just shocked and devastated. People burst into tears. The nun in our classroom had us start praying for him which we did. We endured the rest of the day. Nobody could really focus on what they were doing. We wanted to get home and watch the news broadcast. Then we stayed glued to the TV set for three awful days."

She also remembered the heart wrenching funeral.

"The funeral-- everything was so wrenching. People were lining up to walk past the casket. Mrs. Kennedy came with her children and John John saluted the casket. That was wrenching."

Studencki says she gets so emotional about Kennedy because he was so inspiring to her. She even remembered one time getting to hear him speak on a visit to Montana.

"We walked over to the stadium because we knew when he was coming. It was really exciting when your younger. He was the President of the United States. That's a really big deal to go see him in person or get as close as you can to see him and to hear him speak."

Studencki says she was barely able to get a seat in the stadium, but could spot the late president by his sandy colored hair. She says she will always fondly remember the Kennedy family for all of their kindness to society.

The death of JFK is a moment that will stand out as one of the saddest in American history.
