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.”

DIANNE GORBELL PASSES AWAY

Thank you to Jim Day, by way of Beth Browning, for letting me know of the death of Dianne Gorbell Taylor.  Dianne began school with us at Robinson, but did not graduate with us.  She has been to a couple of reunion events over the years.  Below is her obituary, with thanks again to Jim and Linda.  In the deep recesses of my mind it seems like her mom Shirley and my mom were either friends or active together in some Kirkwood something.  Perhaps Theatre Guild or PTA?  Can't remember but I believe that is why I knew Dianne.  May she rest in peace.

Dianne “Dee Gee” Taylor (Gorbell), age 70, of Eureka, MO, died Friday, February 3, 2017 at Marymount Manor in Eureka. She was born July 2, 1946 in New Rochelle N.Y., the daughter of the late George Leighton “Rick” Gorbell and Shirley (Franke) Gorbell. Wife of Bobby Taylor. Loving mother of Jeanna Sample and Michelle Stevens. Dearest grandmother of Tobias and Jessica. Dear sister of Rick Gorbell. A memorial visitation will be held Thursday, February 9, 2017, from 4:00 p.m. until the time of the memorial service at 5:00 p.m., at Faith Community Church, 4824 Scottsdale Rd. House Springs, MO 63051 Memorials may be given in Dee Gee's name to Conquer Cancer Foundation P.O. Box 896076 Charlotte, NC 28289-6076 or online at ConquerCancerFoundation.org
