70th Birthday Bash Album 1

Our 55 year reunion planning is underway. October 2016.

This site is operated and funded by members of our class.
Class Administrator: Marianne Usko Brown
Page Hits: 17,141




Event Announcement!

70th Birthday Bash pictures are viewable...!

Hi All:

The slide show program wouldn't let me place all pictures into one album, therefore I had to split them into two presentations; Album 1 above and Album 2 below.

Click anywhere within the picture frame or text. Once in, click on "Slideshow" to advance pictures after 4 second delay. You can change the speed by clicking the down arrow and selecting the speed you want.

To get back to our website home page, click the "back arrow" several times until you're in.

Regards, Marianne

Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Marilyn Brookstein Jacobson


Hello from the City of Brotherly Love, to the Valley of the Sun!

I am now associated with the senior generation, as well all of you are, which is sometimes referred to as an no end in sight for choices. I am trying to juggle the role of spouse, parent, grandparent to our triplets and twins, and daughter to an aging parent, my mom, who will turn 97 this week. My husband and I will be celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary next December. Mom has lived with us since I was diagnosed with colon cancer and am now in remission. I have always been competitive, but thank G-d only reached Stage 3, not Stage 4 of this illness. Because of all the chemo I took, my immune system is down, and it seems I catch every chronic disease listed in the medical texts. I am trying to take charge of my life by taking an assertive approach to whatever G-d has chosen for me on a daily basis. The pressure of all my recent illnesses has certainly taken a toll on my precious family and friends. I try not to be a burden to those that I love so much! I am not 100 percent all the time and I do cry often but am trying to prove that it is what you do with your afflictions that matters much more that what the afflictions do to you. I am, and will always be a survivor.

A few years ago, we did return to the valley and much to our surprise, found Phoenix and its surroundings had become so populous and
commercialized; however, if I were to be given a second chance in life, my husband and I would choose to return to the valley where our lives were so memorable and where everyday living was so relaxed.

Hello everyone,

I have really enjoyed our connection through all of the e-mails, web sites and pictures, leaving me with many memories.
Thanks to Marianne, Jacque, Carol, Elaine and Jerry and all the others who've made this possible.

You seem like such a great fun group, enjoying the time being spent with each other.
You have done a wonderful job. I have so enjoyed the messages back and forth.I have even heard from several "lost" classmates.

It's been a difficult year for me this year with family health issues. My mom lives with us and just turned 99 years old.
I feel if I spent as much time taking our car in for servicing on my body, I might be able to get around like I was sixteen all over again! Maybe not, wishful thinking! I just had my right and left knees totally replaced in July and September and am so looking forward to doing a cha cha with my husband
next month on our 52nd wedding anniversary.
I have really enjoyed all the emails and pictures and walking down memory lane. We may be erasing years, but recalling many fond memories. I can see how the reunion festivities were fabulous and everyone was enjoying a wonderful time and perfect weather. Those who attended both last two reunions and those of us who were unable to attend, can see the entire committee efforts of your fabulous team. You did a great job!

I am so proud of the Class of 1961 and the way each of us has defined our success.
Some of us believe their happiness has been laced with success due to a handsome or beautiful partner or an impressive business title. Remember happiness comes from within. We were all not lucky enough to have climbed a corporate ladder or owned our own business or made lots and lots of money and are now living or a very meager retirement; however, I have always believed you should count your accomplishments not with the cup that is half empty, but by the cup that is still half full. At our age, if we are married, divorced, living with someone, healthy, happy, have love in our hearts for everyone, even the ones that donít deserve it, counts as a hugh success for us all.
We are such a diversified graduating class and I am so proud to have known most of you.

I have really enjoyed sharing all of the emails with Marianne, Carol, Jacque and Gerri plus seeing all the pictures and getting flashback memories from our class.
