This is a sad loss- Mike was so engaged in the larger world & development overseas. We shared the Peace Corps Volunteer life early on, both in Malaysia, but it formed a bond that stayed with us. He often shared what was going on in the Friends Of Malaysia group he belonged to, encouraging my participation. His career gave him a unique insight to World Affairs- he was a valued friend for many of us. Rest In Peace.

I remember Carol Wing. She was my wonderful friend in junior high school. I don't remember her at Edina in senior high, but perhaps she completed her studies there in a different way. I know her family was having some difficulties and she spent a lot of time at her uncle's house. I remember that picture of her in her nurse's uniform. She always wanted to be a nurse. Sounds like she made a wonderful career of her work. She was a great friend with whom I lost touch when she stopped going to school. I am so sorry to hear she passed away.  I remember many happy times with them. We had fun together and were typical "junior high kids" as I recall.  I remember spending nights at her house and going to her uncle's house and getting something for lunch first at the local convenience store.  She was a very nice girl who always had a desire to be a nurse.  By the sounds of it, she had a good, long marriage and I hope she was always happy.  She was a good friend, and we lost touch after she no longer attended school.  I don't remember anything else. 

 I certainly feel bad about her death from Covid and wonder if that was a direct result of her work as a nurse, caring for others. And her obituary mentions that if anyone wants to give a memorial in her honor to an animal rights group, that would be fitting.  I smiled because animal rights are paramount to me.

Does anyone remember Carol Sue Wing (Schreiber) from our class? Her obituary appeared in the Strib last weekend and listed her as being a graduate of our class, however she did not appear in our yearbook or commencement program. I have added Carol to our In Memory page, along with her photo. Perhaps someone will recognize and remember her. To my knowledge, she is the first of our classmates to die of Covid 19.

Carol Sue (Wing) Schreiber·         Schreiber, Carol Sue Wing Died from Covid 19, November 29, 2020 in Willmar, MN. She is survived by husband of 50 years, Michael Schreiber and son, Leroy. Carol is also survived by brother Richard Wing, (Stephanie) and sister Cindy Hoyny, (John), many nieces and nephews. Carol was born in Minneapolis August of 1946 and graduated from Edina High School, 1964. Carol attended the Abbott Hosp. School of Nursing graduating in 1967. Carol went on to work for Abbott Hosp. and HCMC. Any memorials may be directed to a local Animal Humane Society location. Private burial with a Summer memorial is planned.Published on December 13, 2020

I clearly remember that tragic November 1963 day in Edina High and American history. I was in study hall, probably dozing off after lunch, when the shocking announcement of the JFK assassination down in Dallas came across the PA. I think it was about 130 pm. Believe classes continued on schedule for rest of the day but no one, of course, could focus on the day's lesson.

I cannot re call watching any live TV while in school, but over the weekend and thru the JFK funeral I was glued to TV, probably to Channel 4 WCCO, which carried Walter Cronkite's CBS newscasts.

Many of our generation were affected and inspired by President Kennedy. At least three members of our class joined the U.S. Peace Corps, which Kennedy had established. Several years after our graduation, Gail Hughes became a Volunteer in Lesotho in southern Africa, and both Mark Brandow and I became Volunteers in Malaysia in Southeast Asia. I suspect all three of us would agree that serving in the Peace Corps was a life-changing, very positive event or experience in our young lives.

The Peace Corps remains alive and well, and this year marks its 60th anniversary. At the moment, due to the pandemic, all Volunteers have been brought back home from their assignments in some 60 developing countries. But there are plans to get Volunteers back out to host countries as soon as health and security concerns permit.

I was in 5th hour gym class down in one of the lower level wresting rooms. We had finished doing warmup squats. I was wrestling Keith Boettcher as I recall. The PA system in that room was broken so we could barely hear the announcement. Of course all fell quiet and the class ended early so we could shower and move to the last class of the day. Mine happened to be speech class with Larry Stotts. Somehow he was able to get a TV into his class room. We spent the hour in dead silence as the tragedy continued to unfold. It was a long sad weekend to say the least.

Remembering that fateful day during our senior year when our principal came over the PA system, broadcasting the radio announcement about the President being shot. I remember sitting with my classmates, stunned, while silently weeping and praying. What are your memories?
