Too many of our class have left us long before their time. Bringing them back to us would be our first wish, but honoring them with a recollection of the memories of our shared times may be the best that we can do.
     We miss them in so many ways.
     If you can find the time and strength to leave a note (tribute) in their honor............ mouse click on the tribute button below their picture and type it in.........or, start a whole new one by mouse clicking on the   Add a Memorial   link below.

Willis was one of the nicest guys you could know and a good friend. After serving time in Viet Nam, he was stationed at Fort Lewis in Tacoma, Washington where I was also stationed. We had some great times with him and Eamma. It's great to reflect on the memory of a great guy. 

Sandra St. Germaine (Benjamin)

Mark Sheffer - February 16th, 2023
Sandy was the first young woman I ever tried to dance with and she didn't even laugh at my clumsy toe stepping effort. I liked her for that and her genuine personality
Ted Brim - May 2nd, 2016
Clipping from the paper.  Just the kind of thing Sandy would do.
Tom Claflin - April 29th, 2016
Being from homogenous Bowling Green, when a teacher brought up a question regarding solving the problem of racial stife in our country, most of us, at least from my parochial perspective, were pretty clueless.  I very distinctly remember, though, in some class in the 9th grade, I think, Sandy speaking up and observing that the only real solution was a lot of intermarriage.  At the time, in Bowling Green in the early 60's, I was really impressed by what I thought was a very astute observation.  She was a good one.

Deceased Date: 2013-06-19
Sue (Baker) Hoane - September 8th, 2016
I remember Debbie's eyes; I am not sure why. Her eyes and a ready smile made her face radiate through the halls of BGHS. In her adult life, Deb loved dogs! She owned many and showed them in competitions around the country. She belonged to many dog clubs. After 25 years at BGSU working in clerical positions, Deb retired allowing her more time to pursue her interests in quilting and sewing, making gifts for family and friends. Unfortunately, she lost her courageous battle with cancer. She was survived by her four legged companion, Jaxson.
