MICK MARIETTA IS IN A NURSING HOME WHERE HE WILL REMAIN FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE AFTER A STROKE. HE WOULD ENJOY PHONE CALLS FROM HIS CHILDHOOD FRIENDS TO CHEER HIM UP. His number is 573 885-4500, ask for Mick Marietta. It may be difficult to communicate with him. Mail address is Cuba Manor, 210 Eldon Drive, Cuba, MO 65453.


We seem to all be suffering a common problem these days, WHERE DID OUR LIVES GO? Our brains seem to still be 18, but our bodies are talking a different language. Sarah Orne Jewett puts it much more eloquently than do I:

“Neither of my companions was troubled by her burden of years. I hoped in my heart that I might be like them as I lived on into age, and then smiled to think that I too was no longer very young. So we always keep the same hearts, though our outer framework fails and shows the touch of time.”

SALLY MARSALEK BROOKE

I am shocked and saddened to tell you that our classmate, consumate nurse, and wonderful friend, Sally Marsalek Brooke passed away March 2, 2009. There will be an obituary in the St. Louis Post Dispatch soon, her brother is preparing it now.(as of 3/26/09 it hasn't yet appeared.) The obits are on www.stltoday.com each day. It is believed she had a pulmonary embolism and Jeff said she didn't suffer too much. She didn't have any on-going illnesses or anything that they knew of. You can email Jeff through her email sbrooke814@aol.com. They have one daughter Maggie and Jeff said they were doing as well as could be expected. I had a great opportunity to visit with Sally not too many years ago on a biz trip to New Orleans, we had a great gab-fest and she was very happy and was satisfied with her life.
1/30/2012 - in reviewing old emails I see I have a message in March, 2006 from Sally telling about their lives in the New Orleans area 6 months after Katrina. It is long, but if anyone would like to read it, I'll be happy to forward it to you, just send me an email. lvc

  1. There never has been an obituary (that we could find) in the St. Louis Post Dispatch.
