Here is Marilyn's Entry from the 1982 Reunion Book:

Footnote: Re Marilyn Beth Grover's twin, Carolyn Beth Grover

Carolyn did not graduate from Weber and we only know that she was in the sophomore yearbook, but have no information about her adolesence after that.  The family may have moved out of the school district while Marilyn and her husband remained in it - but if anyone knows more, please inform the site.  In any case, for those who knew both, we have found a brief obituary on Carolyn and share it here:
