Our 2010 reunion (50th Year celebration held during our 49th year since graduation) created a "Hiliners 61 Communication Team." This sub-committee continues to provide information and connections for you and all of our classmates. It's our gift to each of you and to ourselves as we enjoy our interactions with classmates as they contribute stories, ideas, news items and words of encouragement. We urge each of you to send us emails and/or place comments on the blog. - Barb (Sheppard) Lang, Diane (Sauer) Hughes, Larry Gauper and Ron Morsch - Email addresses for communication team members are available on the ABOUT THIS BLOG page.

NOTE: If you're viewing this on a smart phone and you can't see the Remembrance List or the "bios" on the right side of the screen, scroll to the bottom of the site (on your phone) and click on "VIEW WEB VERSION."

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.
