Marilyn Vandestreek Burton passed away

We were saddened to hear of the death of our classmate, Marilyn Vandestreek Burton of Ogden, Utah. She passed away on January 16, 2018. According to information we have at this time, she had moved from assisted living to a service that offered increased care. Her illness was apparently chronic and increasing. During the 2010 reunion, she was using oxygen part of the time. At this point, details of her death are sparse and no services are planned. The family plans to spread her ashes in the mountains, in the spring. Marilyn's daughter, Evonne, may be providing us with more information and we'll publish that here and/or in Diane' newsletter. God bless the memory of Marilyn Vandestreek.
