SPECIAL THANKS TO MEL BOWERS
FOR  ALL THE HELP HE HAS GIVEN US.


Dear Classmates:
We thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. We think of you in silence, We often speak your name. All we have are memories and your picture in a frame. God has you in his keeping, we have you in our heart.

There are five things that you cannot recover in life:

1. The Stone...after it's thrown

2. The Word...after it's said

3. The Occasion...after it's missed

4. The Time...after it's gone

5. A person...after they die. Treat each one with care
as
life is so short....

SOUTHERLAND, LINDA LEE

Linda Lee Sutherland's friend Gina phoned Judy Newton to notify her  that Linda passed away sometime during the night of Oct. 31 or possibly November 1st. That's all the information we have. Linda entered a nursing home approximately 3 years ago and we lost touch with her then. She was Judy's dear friend since they were both 8 years old and no doubt many of us will remember her. RIP my dear Linda. You were loved.

Dawna Rose (Burnham) Greer, 68, of Heber, living with family in St. George, Utah, died peacefully Jan. 17, 2014, from a courageous battle with brain cancer. She was born May 30, 1945, in Red Mesa, Colo., to the late Clinton and Rose Burnham. Her family later moved to Mesa, where she enjoyed being reared by her parents and growing up with her eight siblings.

After graduating from Mesa High School, she attended Northern Arizona University, where she obtained her nursing degree and met her husband, Frank Greer. Being perfect for each other, they were married in the Mesa LDS Temple for time and all eternity on April 16, 1965. After working as a nurse to put Frank through school, she wanted nothing more than to become a mother. She felt her primary responsibility in life was to love, teach and prepare her four children to be upright citizens and to have testimonies of our Savior Jesus Christ. She was extremely proud of her children and especially loved the grandchildren they produced.

Dawna had many talents and blessed the lives of others by sharing them. She was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and held many callings which included; Relief Society president, young women’s adviser, Activity Committee chair, employment specialist and temple worker. She was a master seamstress, spending many hours sewing quilts for her children, grandchildren and neighbors, or sewing prom dresses for her daughters. One of her favorite ways to serve others was by making and giving away blankets for humanitarian aid. She spent countless hours doing genealogy and helped create an 800-page Burnham family history book. She enjoyed using her nursing skills by helping those who were sick, including those with terminal illnesses, assisting those who had medical questions and advising them as to treatment options. She worked tirelessly for the past several years to comfort and assist her husband, who also suffers from the deteriorating effects of cancer. She was a talented artist who painted portraits of her children, decorations on business windows and backdrops for school and church plays. She loved to write poems and had fun using this talent for family scavenger hunts and church activities.  

The talent she was most known for was her green thumb; she had one of the most beautiful yards in Heber. She did not keep this talent to herself. She taught others about her gardening passion whenever she got the chance. She could be found helping neighbors beautify their yards, giving them plants and taking her prettiest flowers to church for everyone to enjoy. It gave her great satisfaction knowing that many people used her yard for wedding and family pictures.

Her many talents, compassion and unwavering testimony of our Savior Jesus Christ touched many lives. She will be missed tremendously by her family, friends and community.

She is survived by her husband, Frank Greer; children: Wendy (David) Skousen of Lakeside, Lance (Shannon) Greer of St. George, Utah, Kristal (Jason) Joy of Salt Lake City, Utah, Kandra (Jared) Owens of Las Vegas, Nev.; 15 grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Clinton and Rose Burnham, sisters Miriam and Shirley, and son Dallin

Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 25, at the Heber LDS Chapel at 1858 Highway 260 in Heber. A viewing will be held from 6-8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 24, and again at 12 p.m. prior to the commencement of the funeral services. She will be laid to rest at the Heber Cemetery immediately following.   

In lieu of flowers, she would desire that such donations be made to the Encore Thrift Emporium in Heber to help the performing arts programs of the Heber-Overgaard Unified School District.

Condolences can be sent to www.greersmortuary.com.

I have twin sisters and they were the first twin boys I had the opportunity of knowing. Time has erased so many of my memories but I do remember the first time I ever saw them in crisp levis, plaid short sleeve shirts and polished shoes very neat. The things that were important then...

Between 1971 and 1976 Elaine lost one child that she

is happily playing with now. In 1976 Elaine gave

birth to a son, Jeremy Christopher, at the Oregon City

hospital. In late 1977 the Roth’s moved to Page,

where Joe got a job working at the power plant. On

Feb. 16, 1978 Elaine gave birth to a daughter,

Jennifer Melanie, at the Page hospital.

Elaine worked with children in Sunday school and

Missionettes and made sure each child knew he or she

were loved. That love was transposed to her children and grandchildren. Her work at her church,

making sure all of the books balanced was a never ending battle for her, even if they were off

one penny.

Elaine is survived by her husband of 43 years, Joseph, her children Heidi Roth of Page, Jeremy

Roth of Farmington, N.M. and Jennifer Martin of Seattle, Wash.; her older sister, Terry Pike, of

Tulsa, Okla., brother, Leroy Giffen, of Page, sister, Evelyn Brubaker, of Mulina Ore., brother

Larry Giffen, of Loveland, Texas and 2 grandchildren, Deacon and Tristan.

Preceding her in death, were her parents and 2 brothers, Elmer and Lonnie.

Services were held at the First Assembly of God church in Page on Sept. 19, 2012.

Interment was at the Page City Cemetery under the direction of Mosdell Mortuary.

It is with great sadness that I inform the class that one of my best friends and our classmate Carol James passed away on July 13th 2012. She lived in Gilbert, AZ. Carol remained dear friends to many in the class of 63. She even traveled on vacation several times with a group of 5 or 6 girls from our class. She had a bond with these girls as if they were all sisters. There were a few of us who were fortunate enough to stay in her lovely condo in Oceanside, Ca. She had a smile that would light up the room and never ever talked bad about anyone. Carol fought a long (5 1/2 year) battle with ovarian cancer taking any chemo they would give her. She suffered greatly the last month or two and is finally at peace. She leaves behind her two daughters and three beautiful granddaughters. Her sister Midge was also by her side day and night. Carol requested no funeral. Her daughters held a beautiful memorial celebration of life at Carol's home on Sat. July 21st. 2012. Classmates there today were Bonnie Brennan, Jane Tune, Lauren Thompson, Pat Pitton,Mike Jolly and Tonya Coombs.This is the hardest name yet for me personally to add to our ever growing list of fallen classmates. Carol loved Elvis and we know he was there to welcome her.
We will miss Marcia Carol James deeply,
Tonya Coombs

Tonya,
 
Thank-you for calling about Bonnie. She was such a good friend from way back.
She had so many health trials over the years that should have taken her but she just refused to go. I had decided she would be here till the Millenium.
Her favorite word was Wonderful. Sometimes when things aren't going well, I think, Bonnie would just say wonderful. Her other favorite word was buns.
She was an angel, and now more so. What a good person.

From June Clabaugh McCulla on February 15th, 2010
Sandi was a very special person.  She married Allen Dugger, a dear friend of my brother.  It all seems so long ago now.  Allen died in a tragic gun accident when we all were so young.  Sandi was left a very young widow with a little boy, Bobby, to raise.  My brother was very close to Sandi and treasured their friendship.  Over the years we all drifted a part and Sandi and I only talked now and again.  But she had a heroic nature and crammed more memories into her life time than most people can imagine.  So I can only remember her as  a very young girl telling me she was going to marry Allen - or maybe Butch.  But I'm sure if she had not been here the world would have seemed smaller and less alive.

Obituary

Roberta Gayle Lewis

1945 ~ 2009
Roberta Gayle Lewis, age 63, passed away peacefully on November 14, 2009, surrounded by loving family members after a decades-long battle with various cancers.

Known by her family and friends as "Berta" or "Berd," she was born December 12, 1945 in Los Angeles to John and Catherine (Peggy) Lewis. Berta was the third of nine; her parents, along with sisters Bonny and Kathryn, preceded her in death.
Berta grew up in Southern California and Arizona, where she loved spending her childhood with her three sisters, Christine, Kathryn and Bonny. From an early age, Berta displayed talents in the areas of music, acting and athletics. She made piano playing look easy and learned to play with very little formal instruction. The house was always filled with music when Berta was around. A gifted actress, Berta's favorite role in high school was Anne Frank in "The Diary of Anne Frank" at Mesa High School in 1963.
After two years at Brigham Young University, she moved to Los Angeles where she began her career in the motion picture industry, working for a variety of companies including Walt Disney, Paramount, and Twentieth Century Fox. In 1971 Berta was the victim of a serious automobile accident that severely damaged her leg. While she was able to keep her leg, she lived with chronic pain from that accident for the rest of her life and eventually required the help of a cane to walk. Throughout adversity, Berta always found the bright side and rarely complained about her physical limitations.
In 1981 while living in Utah she was diagnosed with breast cancer and began treatments. After her breast cancer was in remission, she returned to California where she worked until a different form of cancer (mantle cell lymphoma) was discovered in 1997. Again, she beat the odds.
Berta brought excitement and energy to everything she did. Her life was a fascinating story and she assumed that everyone else had just as fascinating a story waiting to be uncovered. She greeted everyone with a smile and an encouraging word. Berta was a wonderful listener and genuinely cared about others. She will always be remembered as our beloved sister and "Crazy Aunt Berd."
Berta is survived by six siblings: Christine Lewis Owens (William) of Phoenix, AZ; John Lewis (Ann) of Orem; Barbara Lewis Camp (Lowell), Jeffrey Lewis (Kathleen), and Diana Lewis Wakimoto (Takema) of Alpine; and David Lewis (Celeste) of Highland; along with 29 nieces and nephews, two birds, Tinker and Bell, and generations of snails.
Funeral services will be held Thursday, Nov. 19, 2009, at 11 a.m. in the Stonewood Stake Center (450 S 100 W, Orem). Viewings will be held Wed, Nov. 18 from 6-8 p.m. at Sundberg-Olpin Mortuary (495 S State St, Orem), and preceding the funeral at the Stake Center beginning at 9:30 a.m. Interment at the Spanish Fork City Cemetery.

I found Berta about 3 years ago in Orem, UT, by chance.  We talked many times after that, and she  always made me feel better about life.  She was truly a giving, kind, Christian person.  I miss her very much.

I have such fond memories of Berta in Mesa High Bunnies. She made me laugh, took time to share her inner thoughts and truly cared about others. I was so glad to reconnect a year ago. We shared a brief synopsis of our lives and in true Berta style, she made all of the things she has suffered seem unimportant and instead talked about how happy she was to be "HOME" with her family, after all these years and be sharing the most important things with them.

Berta touched my life and I will remember her with love. Thanks, Berta.

From LINDA ROWAN PRIES on December 4th, 2009
Image A new star was placed in the heavens November 14...the day that Berta Lewis passed away.  She had fought four cancers during her 63 years plus a devastating car accident which altered the rest of her life.  Throughout all the obstacles which came her way, Berta never gave up.  She had more tenacity, bravery, fortitude and faith than any of my friends or patients I have known.  She, in the midst of all her problems, was the one still reaching out to others, ...caring, loving, and showing her positive, many times comical, attitude. 
    Berta was one of a kind.  What a privilege it has been to know Berta as a childhood friend....and even more so as an adult.  She and I reconnected through emails the last five years and I have saved everyone of them.  I will let Berta talk to you in the next few lines...including the last email she wrote a few weeks before her passing.
    "Life is Good.  I just hope I can retain this feeling and not ever get numb to feeling healthy.  We take too much for granted, don't you agree.  I am so glad I feel terrific.  Yippee!"
    "Keep in touch with your friends.  You never know when you will need each other.  Keep the faith and do not forget to run in the rain.  ..........I never want it to be said that I did not live....or run though the rain.  Love, Berta"
    "So life continues to be good and I am as happy as a lark.  I have no complaints.  Life is really looking good to me at this time.  Yes!"
    "Thank you so much for your prayers.  I feel all of them and I am beyond grateful.  Love, Berta"
    "I have been alive 12 years since the diagnosis of  mantle cell lymphoma, so I have no business complaining.  The fact is, though, since I have been doing so well, it is hard to realize that I actually may die."
    "It is my friends who are keeping me gong.  I just cannot tell you how much it means to me that you are standing by and supporting me in such a tender way.  You are a very positive support for me."
    "Sometimes I wonder if it is really worth it to endure this kind of discomfort just to remain breathing.  Then I have to remember that I still have good days, and as long as that is the case, I will continue to fight the Beast.  Okay, that is all for now.....and the beat goes on!   Love, Berta"
   
Berta's last message to me and others was a sign that Berta knew her time was short...and it was her way of summing things up.
 
    "First of all, I want everyone to know that I love you very much.  I feel your support and love and I am fortunate beyond words.   As always, I love you.  Berta"
 
    Berta will never die.  Her spirit will live on in the hearts of those who knew her.  Her words will echo in our minds...and the twinkle in her eye will continue each time we see a picture of her.  And all you have to do is look up in the sky at night and the brightest star you see will be Berta smiling down and saying one of favorite sayings, ....."and the beat goes on."  Thank you God for giving us Berta and God bless you, Berta, for touching so many lives.     With love,
                                                Linda Rowan Pries

From Marilyn (Teffteller) Crofford on December 15th, 2009
Image Vickie and I met at East Mesa Jr. High in 7th grade. We became very close friends from that time. We had a lot of fun times together, crusing main street in Mesa,and going to Riverside dance on South Central in Phoenix. I have a lot of good memories of the two of us. We worked at the "Pioneer Drive In Theater" together. My sister and Vickie's brother are married, so really we were family. I will miss Vickie so much but I do have all our good memories. I do miss you VICKIE.

From MICHAEL JENSEN on December 4th, 2009

Dear Class of '63
 
Jody Hood Jensen died 22 April 2004. In all likelihood the simple cause of her death was scientists tinkering with ozone depleting chemicals (ODCs). The disease she was diagnosed with was Nephrogenic Fibrosing Dermopothy (NFD )which was changed to NFDINSD (adding Systemic to the acronym because it paralyzes body organs as well) partly because of an autopsy performed on her last year. This disease had not been seen before 1996 and the trigger has not
yet been identified. The vast majority of changes made in the fabrication of medicines and construction and repair of hospitals in the past ten years have been replacements of old ODC chemicals.

Jody enjoyed life thoroughly up until the day she died. She is well known as a researcher and historian not only from the many articles she had published as a writer and editor of the Tremonton Leader but also from her co-workers in the Space Shuttle where she approved "Build Logs" for NASA. She left behind three daughters a son, husband, two nephews and over a dozen grandchildren all trying to live up to her expectations.

Sincerely,
Michael Jensen

he was a Terrific Mentor, one of the smartest people I have ever known. I miss my Uncle George
 
From Roy Record (Mason at Mesa High) on January 31st, 2011
George was my closest friend while attending Mesa High.  Went to college together for a while, both served in the United States Navy and although George was not a Vietnam bound sailor, we still stayed in touch through the early 70s.  A friend who held my life together during a difficult time in my life. 
 
From June Clabaugh McCulla on February 20th, 2011
From those frozen frames in time called high school, the clarity of hindsight can speak volumes.  While most of us were growing up, George had already arrived.  At a young age he became his mother's rock and his sisters' protector. Rushing from school to work, carrying the load of family head and student with grace and dignity.  I last saw George in the late '70's.  We had gone our separate ways.  But it was easy to see that he was still the man of grace that he'd always been. It is indeed trure that - "The child is Father of the Man."

Always could make us laugh:) he married my mom, Nancy Hamrick, and I was the only child they had but I have a sister and brother, Michelle and Scotty, who he loved very much. His profession was maintenance and he was a hard worker. He was dedicated to his family and made it a point to teach me about God. It would be wonderful if you share my email address so that anyone who knew him could share memories with me. He was a wonderful dad and he is very missed :) Some other things I know are: he served in the Air Force after high school, he followed that with 4 years of college,and he was good friends with a man named Guy Hannum in high school. I would love to hear from Guy as my mom still has photos of both of them. Thanks for adding my dad to your memorial, it means a lot!

I was sad to hear of Mike’s passing, so long afterwards. He and I hung out a lot in our sophomore and junior years. He was a great guy who was always friendly to everyone. I’ll never forget his goal to break the school sit-up record with over 700 repetitions without stopping. I can’t remember the exact number or if he actually broke the record, but what an effort. Mike and I didn’t see each other much after I got a girl friend late in our junior year. That was my loss.
