Recently, my Facebook friend, Margaret Patricia "Patty" Grey, had this picture of her high school friends at their annual get together last weekend on her site. Left to right, including maiden names are - Lucy Canizaro Williams, Laura Love Ables (my sister), Sandra Jabour Harvey, Nina Coccaro Buell, Helen Melsheimer Gordon, Judy Janes Youngblood, Cathy Barnes Downey, Linda Muffuletto, Patty Hebler Gray, Susan Taylor Yerger. 10 of 24 girls. They have lost five of the girls from the SFXA Class of 1961-- beautiful Rachel Hunt Dixon, Rosemary Woodbury, Mary Grace Tuccio, Michael Ann Penalver Zeh and Ethel Towne Kendrick. Three who planned to come, but had last minute obligations--Joan Kinnebrew Reynolds, Barbara Montgomery Mellon, and Marianne Neal Walley. They were missed so much. To the six others who could not be there--Dottie Brooks Murray, Cecelia Franco Springer, Linda Harwood Oakley, Mary Carol McNamara Lundberg, Deborah Miao Waggoner, Vivian Smith Bell--were truly missed and hope they can make the next one. And to Linda Byrd Killian who spent many years with their class, was missed, too. To Bernadette Luckett Ward, happy to have her with them on Friday. Obviously, Patty loves all her friends and the Mercy Babes.
