"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 Keller, Tom Grimm, Linda 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!
