"Word was passed to me that Dorothy J. (Stapp) Mansell passed away in early December in or near Littleton, Colorado. Dorothy was class of ’53 and a good friend to my sister, Benna (Olsen) Morford,’53, and myself, Sarah (Olsen) Vaughn, '56. "
I did learn, after the fact, that a Memorial service was held in Norman for '53 grad Patricia Sue 'Patty' (Mitchell) Burnett. Patty passed on December 30 & service was held January 6.
I know our thoughts and prayers are with those who have lost loved ones.
I would also ask that you keep my sister-in-law Lugene (Williams) Mushrush, '54, in your prayers. Her health continues to be very fragile and she is going through a rough spot right now. She is currently hospitalized in Houston Methodist.
Country Western music star, Blake Shelton, will rock Tulsa this May 6 in concert at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Shelton, who just won Country Music Assoc Male Vocalist of the Year Award, is a native of Ada, OK and son of LHS classmate Dickie Shelton.
Herb Jacobs has another great article in Sunday Constitution, January 9 - 'Where Are They Now'? This article talks about Dr. Charles Graybill and his interaction with Dr. Charles Green and the athletics of the day. Also talks about one of Dr. Graybills most famous patients - 'the Mick'. Mickey Mantle when he was at Ft. Sill.
Good read if you can access it.
