Class of 1959

We, the Class of 1959, celebrated our 50th class reunion on April 24 and 25, 2009. This blog is about sharing memories of our class reunions and a long ago life at our Alma Mater's, S.F.X.A. and S.A.H.S. Good memories of days gone by but not forgotten! A gift to my classmates. ~Marian Love Phillips ~

SFXA Class of 1959~Rosalye

~Rosalye Estelle Wilkerson~

After graduation from S.F.X.A., I attended Ole Miss, graduating in 1963 with a BS Degree in Elementary Education. I moved to Texas where I began my teaching career, married Fred Baldwin and became a Southern Baptist.

We had two wonderful boys, Trent and Troy. We moved back to Vicksburg in 1968 where we have remained ever since. I retired from the Vicksburg Warren School District in 1998. Fred continues to work as a self-employed CPA. Trent is a civil engineer working with the USGS. He married Marissa and lives in Ridgeland, MS. They have given us three precious grandchildren: Shelby, Blake and Ashley.

Troy went home suddenly to be with the Lord at the age of 21. He was a senior accounting major at MSU. When playing a pick-up game of flag football with friends, he collapsed, due to an enlarge heart. Believe me, he was a joy! Praise God, we know where Troy is and we will see him again someday soon.

Retirement is wonderful! How did I have time to work? I stay busy with my Bible Studies, grandchildren, some travel and working in the First Baptist medical/Dental Ministry.

Life is good and we are blessed!
