The deadline to get the group rate is September 16th.
Jack Martin has had to terminate the new regimen of chemo treatment as his body was unable to tolerate it. He was moved to St. Catherine Center in Waco on a semi-permanent basis. Jack requests please no contact via email or phone. He appreciates everyone’s concern but says it is just too demanding for him.
If you would like to send Jack a card or note to cheer him up and let him know you’re thinking of him:

Cynthia (Kirkland) Mazza
Monday (June 18th), I begin rituxan, chemotherapy for thrombocypenia (low platelets, anemia, and lupus) in hopes of raising my platelets. Would certainly appreciate prayers as my 6 hr infusions start at 10 in morn. Will have 4 treatments, then reaccess.
Life for us has been nothing but blessings, a few bumps in the road but wonderful kids and grand ones and we hope this works and no repercussions from meds as I am super sensitive.
Love to all whs friends.
I wish I was close to see each of you and give u a big hug. You guys have kept the spirit of our class alive and I thank you.
To send Cynthia a note of encouragement:

Donna Roberts, wife of Gary Roberts
Gary’s wife had a stroke several months ago. She has also suffered with several seizures. Donna is currently in St. Catherine Center in Waco receiving care and therapy. She needs healing as her left side was affected. Hopefully the therapy will get everything working properly so she can be normal again. Gary and Donna have moved back to Waco.
Jim Scarborough, husband of Carol (Adams) Scarborough
Jim is at home recuperating from a fall which he had some time ago. He is also getting therapy and trying to gain strength.
This is not the first time I have had to post more than one obit in the same day. It is also not the first time that we have had funerals for two graduates on the same day. I really hate to be the bearer of more bad news but I guess it is just a sign of our ages.
Here is the obit for Stephen Brown. I do not know any of the particulars on Stephen’s death, either.
I regret to report that we have lost another graduate- Bill Walsleben.
I do not know any of the details but last night Pat McGlaughn Dooley informed me of his passing. I was able to locate his obit this morning.
The picture on the left is from 1960; the one on the right is from 2018.
Always, when researching our graduates to inform them of a reunion, we learn of deaths. Unfortunately this was the case with Anne Nagle. Here is the link to her obit.
I have included her 1960 WHS pic along with pictures that were on the obit website.
Following the death of her husband, it sounds like Anne made quite a life for herself and quite an impact on others. Her last known address was a 2015 Pensacola, Florida residence.
To quote David McPhail: “I believe it significant that one of our school mates is buried in Arlington Cemetery. Also, the fact that she had six children. Her husband was missing for years and she ‘worked’ for years to ensure that he was found.”
