  "In Memory" Profiles      Updated 1/9/13

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 1959-2012, i.e., from sophomore year to the present.

The Committee has learned of the passing of two more classmates:

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

Karen's obituary is posted, but no obituary is yet available for Mondell. We are in the process of gathering more information about both for further posting.

Some pages are more complete based on what we've been able to find, but we include all that we can locate or that is brought to our attention. Thanks to Classmates Earl Henstra,  Jim Maynard KellerTom GrimmLinda Fowers Thurgood, Richard Crawford, and others - with special thanks to to Wendy Simmons Johnson (daughter of classmates Serge Simmons and Jane Chugg Renstrom) for a great team effort!

Your own remembrance comments - and - any addtional materials you might have to add to these are always valued!
