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.”

Don Stream's mom passes away - her obituary

Here is an email I just received from the Kirkwood School District.  Many of you know Don of our class and many others know his brother Rick from his wonderful community service in Kirkwood:

Friends,
 As many of you are friends and colleagues of the Stream family, we wanted to share Joan Stream's obituary and memorial service information with you. Please keep the Stream family in your thoughts and prayers.
 
Stream, Joan (nee Abbott), 89, a longtime resident of Kirkwood died peacefully April 3, 2013, surrounded by her loving family.
 
Beloved wife of the late Lawrence Edward Stream who passed away in 1963 at the age of 42; dear sister of the late Eleanor Wright; dear mother of Donald (Joann) Stream; Eric “Rick” (Ellen) Stream; Roger Stream; Douglas (Anne) Stream; Scott (Debbie) Stream; Jeffrey (Shelly) Stream; Chris (Nancy) Stream; and Laurie Stream.  Dear grandmother to nineteen, great-grandmother to six, aunt, cousin and friend to many.
 
A 1941 graduate of University City High School, Mrs. Stream received a full scholarship to attend Brown University where she met her future husband, Larry.  He graduated early to serve as a Naval officer in the Pacific during WWII and she transferred to Washington University in St. Louis and graduated Phi Beta Kappa in 1945; first in her class.  She and Larry were married the next year, settled in St. Louis and began their family of eight children before moving to Kirkwood in 1951.  
 
Mrs. Stream’s many activities and volunteer work included: Keysor Elementary School where her children attended for 24 years; an Elder and Deacon at First Presbyterian Church of Kirkwood where she was a member for over 62 years; a Pink Lady volunteer at St. Joseph Hospital; a volunteer with the youth baseball Khoury League; an active supporter of the Muny Opera since 1946; Forest Park forever member and St. Louis Zoo Friend.  She was also an avid St. Louis Cardinals baseball fan all of her life.
 
A service will be held Sunday, April 7, 3 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church of Kirkwood, 100 E. Adams, 63122.  A reception at the church will follow immediately.  A private burial will be held Monday morning.  The family is grateful and wishes to thank Bethesda Dilworth Nursing Home for the excellent care Mrs. Stream received the last six years.
 
Donations may be made to the Salvation Army of St. Louis or the Kirkwood School District Foundation c/o Joan Stream Scholarship Fund.
