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.”

Classmate Mary Jane Fuchs Walters dies

I am saddened to learn of the death of Mary Jane Fuchs Walters on Friday, July 24th.  Jim Day and Marcia Wheeler were kind enough to alert me so I can share the news.  Here are specifics from Marcia:

"Mary Jane and Ron's home address was 550 Busch Forest Drive, Fenton, MO 63026.  However Mary Jane had been residing at the Aberdeen care facility on Couch in Kirkwood most recently.  Her boys are preparing the house for sale, so they would likely still pick up mail there. 

Visitation is at Kutis on Gravois Wednesday from 4-8:00 p.m.   There is a service on Thursday at 9:30 a.m. at Saint Catherine Laboure, 9740 Sappington Road.  Burial will be at Jefferson Barracks. Mary Jane is survived by 3 kids (Ron, Matt and Mindy)  and 7 grandkids."  

As you may remember, Mary Jane's husband Ron died unexpectedly in March.  According to Marcia, Mary Jane "suffered for 25 years with a rare blood disease, "Polysythemia Vera".  I am not familiar with this disease and know nothing about it.  I imagine their children would love to hear from some of Mary Jane's friends at this sad time.  Gone way too soon.
