Our Lord Has Taken Three Classmates' Spouses

We just learned That Sally Benedict Serger's widower

Dennis Serger

was found in his orchard last week,
possibly from a heart attack. If we get information on a service, we will publish it as quickly as possible.

Our deepest condolences to the Serger and Benedict families.

"Just letting anyone that met my wife,
Patricia Keen

at our 60th know, I lost her to COVID on Jan 2nd.

We were partners, friends, and lovers for 51 years.

She had polio when she was 5 years old and had problems her whole life with it. She also suffered with liver issues the last four years of her life. About a year ago she started having problems with fluid building up in her lungs and had to periodically have it drained. Contracting COVID with all her other issues was just too much for her body to handle.

She is finally at peace and will suffer no more.

I loved her very much and will miss her... always. "

On Our deepest condolences to Karl and the family.

We will let you know if we learn anything about a service or a way to make contact with the family.

We Want To Go Cruisin' Again...

And We Want You To Go With Us. OK?

Click on "Future Cruise" in the top box and read the note about where we are going and when.

As it stands (mid September), the cruise is still planned, is still booked,
and none of the class members or their guests have cancelled.

We are looking forward to seeing each other once again onboard ship

Please consider joining us. It is a lot of fun. And we miss you.




Home For Gridley Union High School Class of '59
"Blue and Gold Rules!"

Our original goal was to get information to you regarding the Cruise that took place in April '09, the Homecoming Game  that took  place on September 18th (with the "Gathering" at the Moose Lodge following the game), and the Dinner that occurred on September 19th.  We expanded this site to include information about our past reunions, and to tell you about future plans. When you look through this website, if you see a name missing or a name that needs to be brought up to date, or a space containing something like: [? ? #4 ? ? ] and you know who the person is or where the place is or what the date may be that is missing, please send it to us. Our failing, feeble minds just cannot come up with some of the information.

We hope that you enjoy your visit to your website.
