Then and now photos of Jeanne Petrus and Lois Edelstein, members of Devonshire at PGA National

For “Glamour Days at Devonshire” this past February, Erickson Living’s retirement community in Palm Beach Gardens displayed some 50 photos of many of the women who live there, which were taken decades earlier. No names were provided. 

Viewers were challenged to identify the women based solely on their photo. Everyone enjoyed guessing who was who. 

‘Mystery lady’

“The photos brought back personal memories from those years,” says participant Lois Edelstein. Her dramatic photo, taken in profile when she was 18 or 19, stumped everyone. ”I was a mystery lady,” she says.

Jeananne Petrus, on the other hand, fooled hardly anyone. Her earlier shot was taken professionally when she was pursuing work in commercials.
