55-Year Reunion for the NHS Class of 1962

At classmates’ request, the Class of 1962 will be having its 55-Year Reunion the weekend of September 22-24, 2017 at the Sheraton Hotel in Columbia, MD (same as Birthday Bash). Please save these dates. This is a lovely venue and was enjoyed by all at our Birthday Bash. This most likely will be our last big reunion together. The Reunion Committee will be meeting after the first of next year to begin planning the activities, and you will receive a mailing with all of the information.

YOU CAN HELP THE COMMITTEE MAKE ITS PLANS BY LETTING US KNOW IF YOU WILL BE PLANNING TO ATTEND OUR REUNION. PLEASE LET ME KNOW BY RETURN EMAIL AT THE EMAIL ADDRESS WITH THIS NOTICE.


New Email Addresses and Mailing Addresses

Many of our classmates have new email addresses that I do not have. If you know of someone whose email address has changed in the last year, please forward it to me so that I may keep them informed of class happenings. Also, if you know any classmates who have moved and have new addresses, I would appreciate receiving those as well.


Classmate Deaths

I am writing to let you know that our dear friend and classmate, Sherry (Sherrill Inez) Owens Lewis, died on Wednesday morning, July 27, 2016 at 1 am. I received an email from Sherry’s husband Bob. She was in a hospice and, as I understand it, was being treated for scleroderma and developed an infection that could not be cured. There will be a service held for her at St. Joseph’s Episcopal Church, 3300 S. Seacrest Boulevard, Boynton Beach, FL 33435 on Thursday, August 11, 2016, at 6 pm. She was a dear and caring person, and lots of fun. She really enjoyed attending our reunions and was involved in charity work in Del Ray, Florida, where she lived. She will be missed greatly. If you wish to send an email her husband Bob and family, the email address is ocean0426@bellsouth.net. You may also send a card or note to him at Robert Lewis, 805 Estuary Way, Delray Beach, FL 33483.

Also, for those who may not of heard, our dear friend and classmate, Susan Wilkinson Corbin, who lived in Barbados, died of breast on March 17, 2016 after a valiant fight. Susan was thrilled to reconnect with classmates several years ago, and visited the US twice a year, where several of us got to see her and spend time with her. She leaves a husband Stephen and two daughters, Natalie and Kelly. She will be truly missed.

Other classmates who have died more recently are: Kathryn Louise Hartnett (4/7/15); Daniel West Leggett (5/2015); Frank Silva Morgan, Jr. (9/2/2015); Richard “Dick” Arnold Loveday (12/24/15); Paul Thurman Judd (12/29/15); Everett “Ed” Michael Caracofe (1/19/16); and Patricia Sullivan Pease (1/2016). I received word from Elaina Gutridge that Jeanne Fearson’s youngest daughter died this past week of JRA, which she had since the age of 2. Also, Kathy Glading Tufts let me know that our former Physical Education teacher, Deann LeBeau died in Brooksville, FL on Dec 9, 2015, at the age of 77. She taught most of her career in Connecticut schools. If you know or hear of any other classmates who have passed away, please let me know.
