In Memory Notices

(updated June 12, 2014)

The Committee has learned of the passings of two more classmates.

Gary M. Stokes of North Ogden passed away on May 20, 2014 (Click here for his obituary). 

Julia Joy Gehrlein Richesson of Ogden left us on July 23, 2013 (Click here for her obit).

As previously posted, Keith Wayment passed away on March 31st of this year. (Click here for obituary)  He passed away in Twin Falls, ID.

In Memory pages will posted in their names after we finish gathering materials.  If any classmates have any materials, e.g., pictures, memories or info not in the obituary to share, please contact us.


  3/9/14:   There is a major development to share about the site....

The good folks at Class Creator have been busy folks.

And their new way of making the whole site work inside of facebook (called "Class Connection") looks REALLY good.  (On computers at least - so far we haven't seen it work on phones or tablets.)

 In fact, we're guessing this is how some will choose to participate on the site.  (Not to worry, though. If you like the way things are, or just don't use facebook - the separate page will also continue to exist for years to come - and the original site does definitely work on phones and tablets.) 

 The buttons and tabs for doing things are in different places - and there's some new tools exclusive to facebook, but virtually the WHOLE SITE is live on facebook now. 

So, if you have a facebook account and want to try it out, just click on the "Try Class Connection" text on the upper right of the Home page - or on the facebook logo and "join our class" as well. They'll both take you there.

There's a lot to share about this - e.g., once you're a site member on Class Connection, you can instantly get to the site from anywhere on facebook  simply by typing "Class Connection" into the facebook search bar. And can set things up so you get facebook notifications of posts, pictures, comments, etc. on the site like anything else you follow on fb.

 You can also use facebook's messaging system from inside Class Connection, etc., and see your regular fb notications TOO while you're surfing WHS '62 (!). And more.

 But we recommend you give it a test drive - and as always, let us know what you think.


Oh were oh where has new content gone...??


For sure awhile since the last real site content update... ...not anyone's plan, just where we are...  ...carrying out the 50th Reunion - and finding all the info we could on classmates who've left us - was a real roller coaster ride, on which many busted hump for months... ...to the point of neglecting other priorities to which they've returned.

....Still, we've collected a ton of pictures and words - both of the nostalgic variety and all the  life sketches most of you have posted - and we're all free to add more and use the site to stay in touch.  So we hope what's already here is a good resource.

And going forward, with this platform already up and running - we'll be able to focus on future events rather than on setting up and getting word of a web site out to you. 

Meanwhile, welcome to our two newest (post Reunion) site members, Carol Wilson Hull and Kazuko Hori Shiotani..!!


We also haven't finished the In Memory pages for classmate passings reported since the reunion - at least not to the standard of most of the memorial pages and hope to remedy that relatively soon.

Finally, we've had a report that indicates the likely passing of Joyce Smith in 2003. However, while we believe the report is correct, despite considerable effort we have not been able to find a death record, obituary or other real confirmation of this despite making a considerable effort.  If any of you can help verify (or contradict) the report, it would be much appreciated.

February 3, 2013 - Volume 51, Issue 3


* major changes to the website (2/13) *


Class Creator has re-written the program for the web site.  You've noticed the new look, and more more updates are "in the pipeline." Some buttons have been relocated and the main page is now centered in the browser.  Let us know how you like the the changes.  We want to keep the site looking fresh!

Speaking of whilch, you can now interact directly with us on the Home Page (below). Send site comments, "Letters to the Editor,"  reminiscences of any Reunion, Q's,  or if you know anyone who's lost site access.

Reunion Pics Reorganized:  

Nearly all of our Reunion Pictures - from the 30th, 40th, and 50th Reunion are now under the (now renamed) "Reunion Photos" button (left side of page).  There are some dupes and other glitches in the new program, but we're working on them....

And more......

Remember: You can also post your own Reunion pics.. ..and please do (on the Reunion Photos page, please)!!

  "In Memory" Profiles      Updated 2/2/13

Our goal is sharing something of the stories of our deceased Classmates. Memorial pages have been posted for ALL we know of - covering the period 1959-2013, i.e., from sophomore year to the present.

As noted in the previous issue our most recently passed classmates are:

Karen Knight (11/6/12) N. Mondell Neville (12/6/12)

Karen's obituary is posted, but no obit is yet available for Mondell. We are still  gathering more information about both for further posting.

Some pages are more complete, but we include all we can locate. Thanks to Earl Henstra,  Jim Maynard KellerTom GrimmLinda Fowers Thurgood, Richard Crawford, and others - and to Wendy Simmons Johnson (daughter of classmates Serge Simmons and Jane Chugg Renstrom) for a great effort!

Your own remembrance comments and addtional materials you have to add are always valued!

Weber before "We"....         Updated 4/23/12


The ONLY pic we've found of Weber in winter ('47).  Bonus Q: How many dogs can you find?  

 

This one's both before and during our Weber days: G Spike pics of Roy C. "Dorian Gray" Metcalf...  ...if we ever thought we could put one over on him, he'd seen it all...  ...many times!

(Our best Photoshopping can't make out the '47 text.  It starts with a quote about, we think, courage from William Howard Taft.)

 

Another burning Q. answered:  Why were our most fancy dances called "Proms"?   The '34 "Spike" has the (stylish) answer. Step to the right in unison, now....

 

WHS in '47 - before our Gym...  ...and a game was on...!

 

Ever wonder where "Wahlquist Jr. High" got its name?  Wonder no more...


Thanks for "coming back to class!"
