Belle Rita Driscoll was born December 4, 1916 to Hector and Genevieve (Meron) Brule at Slayton, Minnesota. She moved to Faribault, Minnesota at a young age where she began her education. When she was ten years old her family moved to Amiret, Minnesota where she attended country school through the sixth grade. The family then moved to Marshall where she graduated in 1934. Belle was united in marriage to Daniel Driscoll on December 27, 1937 at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in Marshall, Minnesota. Their union was blessed with eight children and 71 years of life together. The couple farmed near Russell and Green Valley, Minnesota until they moved to the Driscoll home farm at Russell to live and work from 1944 – 1972. In 1972, they sold the farm to their son and built a new home on another farm. The couple moved to Boulder Estates in Marshall in 2004.
