Here's a photo from 1983 of a then 15-year-old Patricia Krentcil, taken when she was a freshman at Cold Spring Harbor High School in New York -- and wouldn't you know it ... but she had that natural orange glow even back then.

Now 44, woman who has become known as The Tanning Mom ... when she was charged with child endangerment for allegedly taking her 5-year-old daughter tanning.

One of her high school classmates told the NY Post, "I do remember her being on the tan side. She definitely had some color."
