ANSONIA — This fall, the Class of 1949 Jackson High School (Mississinawa Valley) held its annual (66th) reunion at the home of Harold and Eileen Good McKnight.
“It was a beautiful day and was spent chatting, taking pictures and, of course, enjoying the good food,” said a spokesperson.
There were 23 graduates in the class. Eleven — John Patterson, Jane Mae Armstrong Yoder, Anna Kramer Juette, Virginia Amspaugh Costello, Evelyn Livingston Brandon, William Robert “Bob” Zacharias, Ralph Ford, Bob Jones, Bob Snyder, Joan Klosterman Pence and Joan Parks Westfall — have passed on. They are always remembered.
Those present to enjoy the day were Ruth Bateman Strait of Greenville, Evelyn Shoop Prescott and daughter of Union City, Paul and Zola Rhoades Faust of New Lebanon, Noah and Nora Sallow of Union City, C. William “Bill” and Helen Swank of Columbus, Jack and Marlene Livingston of Union City, Don Rhoades and Betty Spencer of Tipp City and Harold and Eileen Good McKnight.
Members of the class unable to attend were June Scott Lane, Kenny Hobbs, Dorothy Oda Long and Mary Lenker Ritchey.
Plans were made to see each other next fall.
