greetings from montana

hudson, ohio – a woman's postcard bearing greetings from montana has finally arrived in northeastern ohio — 47 years later.

insurance agent dave conn opened his post office box in the community of hudson last week and found the mailing sent from helena, mont., in 1962.

it was sent to marion white, the previous renter of the box, who had died in 1988. the writer signed the postcard "fran" and mentioned having "had a marvelous time in montana."

after asking around, conn says he determined the card must have come from white's well-traveled friend frances murphey, a longtime reporter at the akron beacon journal. she died in 1998 at age 75.

u.s. postal service spokesman victor dubina says the postcard may have been stuck in equipment or lost behind a mail chute.
