Comments:

My husband and I are both retired and are spending a lot of our time finishing out the full basement. We recently sold our acreage, barn, and pond so we only have the upkeep of the house we had built in 1978 and the surrounding yard. We've had a front porch added and deck in the back which greatly changes the appearance of our place. We have 2 grandchildren who are 4 and 9 yrs. old and live in Ok. We recently bought a camper and parked it near Claremore for the purpose of family gatherings nearer our grandchildren.
Our church is an important part of our everyday lives and do enjoy the company of those friends. My other 4 siblings live in close proximity so we keep in close touch.
I would welcome contact with classmates via this messg. center, phone call, or visit to our home.

School Story:

Vocal music was my extra activity during my school years and I continued on with it through my college years. During my last 2 years of college in LeMars, Ia., I was a member of the top 64 member travelling chorale and sang at the World's Fair in Montreal Canada in 1968. We travelled by private buses for 2 weeks to and from Montreal taking in some of the local tourist attractions including Niagara Falls and the exhibits of the Fair.

I'm sorry to see the passing of another classmate.  He was a quiet, respectable person and always had a smile.

Did your kids move and that's why you've left this area? We may do the same.

Hi Dwain. It has been a long time since high school and since attending the same church and the fun we all had together. I hope this year will be another good year for you. Time rolls on by and we need to enjoy it. Keep the best and leave the rest.

Hey Fred: I just got around to reading your new profile. You and Anna Marie have been blessed immensely by finding each other to continue your life's uncharted journey. Both of you have experienced a bleak, dark place In that journey but you have coped well. Continue on by the Grace of God. Joan

Oh, my, gosh,...……. you did get lucky. My email is joandarby251@gmail.com
I'm glad you're sending it on to Dick. I just got done sending 3 obits. to him that he hadn't gotten posted yet. I also sent them to Gail Misch for her own records: Alfonzo Carroll, Joyce Pringle Hart, and Royce Ann Mayfield Struble. I met Alfonzo's wife Carol when she worked at 4 co. mental health in C'ville. She was a wonderful lady and we shared many laughs together. Later, I helped deliver Meals on Wheels to their home and re-met Alfonzo. I knew his father also. Special people.
Thank you so much for your assist. in locating this info. It means a lot to me to give these people honors and recognition of their passing. It will be us someday and I hope I've helped someone also the way and brought some happiness to them. Joan

Hope you are having a good birthday. I thought I had already sent you best wishes but I don't see it here. You've had an interesting life and faced the issues head on. You're strong and have Christ in your life. That's the best!!!! Joan
