Obits & Missing

Time Magazine, May 1965.

A few updates to the listings of obituaries have occurred under the "Who Has Died?" posting, as well as the other special notes on various other deaths in separate postings. (Please review the archives to find those.)

We need more obit info about the following people who have been confirmed as having passed away:

Pat Charles Bilyeu. Word has been received that she passed away 12 - 14 yrs ago from liver cancer. More information is needed.
Judith E. Burke [Wilson]
Thomas Chambers
Joan Elaine Clapp
Timothy Cleary
John Robert Coutrakon. John Coutrakon was apparently killed in a car/logging truck accident in the late 1980s. More info is needed.
Donna Jean Derr.
Frances Diane Johnson. Nov. 1973?
Edward Albert Palmer
Steven Alan Volle.

1965 Corvette Coupe

The following additional notes have been recently added to the "Who Is Missing?" section. Even with the new finds that means there are lots of people about whom we have no data, at all, yet. Can you help?

The number of people we are finding is encouraging, and many people are talking to each other. The search for classmates is not so much an expedition hunting elusive souls, as much as a memory jogging exercise to recall when and where you have last heard from so and so or whether you might know the whereabouts of this person or that one.

We won't be calling off the search for our classmates, no matter what the reason! Thank you.
