It was the summer of 1925 when four girls from Bethel #12 asked Mrs. Gladys Morisseau to organize a Bethel in the Clifton Heights area.  At the time, Mrs. Morisseau was Worthy Matron of Friendship Chapter #214, OES. She told them that when her term of office was over, she would look into the matter. True to her word, she did just that. Bethel #19 was instituted in May, 1928, and chartered on September 23, 1928, at Clifton Heights Masonic Temple, with forty names on the charter. Mrs. Morisseau was installed as the first Bethel Guardian, and became known as “Mother” Morisseau. “Dad Max” Loewen served as the first Associate Bethel Guardian. Mother Morisseau served as Guardian for 34 years, and Dad Max served as Associate Guardian for 22 years. No one since has served Bethel #19 longer than these two. Mother Morisseau was instrumental in forming a Drill Team, Past Honored Queens’ Club, Past Honored Queens Mothers’ Club, and a Majority Member’s Club. The Drill Team and the Majority Member’s Club are no longer in existence. In the 1980’s, Bethel #19 had a Pom Pon Squad, which is no longer in existence. In December, 1934, Bethel #19 moved to Harmony Masonic Temple. After meeting on the second and fourth Saturdays at 2:00 p.m. for fifty years, the girls voted to move to the first and third Wednesdays at 7:15 p.m. On October 1, 1989, Bethel #19 moved to Webster Groves Masonic Temple, and now meet there on the second and fourth Wednesdays at 7:15 p.m.
