Must have been an orphanage or boarding school. Pensionnaire, was a
boarder which I happened to have been one years ago. Privee is private,
so could be a private school. Hospitaliere, was a hospital employee I
believe and garde is a nurse. Or garde-malade (same thing). I was in an
orphanage (catholic) although I was not an orphan. My grandparents paid
my boarding.
