March 28, 1944 kkelly4482@yahoo.com Oakland, CA legal secretary Married 2 Mr. Kirchoff Greece Singing in choir.
After High school, I went to DePauw University in Greencastle, IN, and received a BA in Classical Languages and Literature.  Then I went Indiana University and got an MA in Classical Languages and Literature.

I met my husband, Denis Kelly, in graduate school.  He was in Comparative Literature, and spoke Classical Greek.  I then went to Greece as an archeologist...Denis joined me, and we were married in Athens.  After that summer, we moved to Canada. 

We both started teaching at Lauretian University in Ontario, Canada.   Laurentian U.  is a bi-lingual (French/English) university.   After 5 years we returned to northern California, where we've been for 35 years.  Denis taught at St. Mary's College of CA, which was his alma mater, and Kathy enrolled as a PhD candidate at UC Berkeley.

Our children intervined.   Michael was born in 1972 and is a professional bass player with the Blue Man Group in Las Vegas. Michael received his BA, magnum cum laude, in humanities, from St. Mary's College. 

Our daughter Meghan, born in 1974, is a first grade teacher in the Bay area.  Meghan's son, our only grandchild, Mateo Lucas Kelly-Ramirez, is just one year old. Meghan has BA (Occidental College)  and MA (San Jose State) and a teaching certificate.

We changed directions for a while: I became a legal secretary for 20+ years, and Denis went into the wine and food industry, wrote 19 cookbooks and taught wine and food courses... and received the James Beard and Julia Child awards....He then went back and taught another 10 years at St. Mary's College

I had a stroke followed by cerebral hemorrhage in 2000, and have experienced about an 80% recovery.  My memory remains somewhat affected and I have difficulty reading, but I am doing well, gardening a lot at home and at our country home near the Russian River.  

We traveled a great deal as tourists and also art collectors. We have spent a lot of time in NY, Paris, and around Europe and the US.

January 18, 1944 swaldvog@msn.com Wentzville MO US Retired Married 2 Mr. Wallace Germany Sitting in the balcony in our assigned seats with Cherie Bono during the assembly meetings and giggling through the whole thing.
After graduation from LHS, I went to work with the R. C. Can Company.  R. C. Can was sold to Boise-Cascade and sold again and again.  I ended up working for five different companies and never left the building.  After 47 years I retired at the end of March, 2011.  As you all know, my
retirement has not turned out exactly as I
planned.

In 1967, I married Carl Waldvogel, Jr. He is the love of my life.  Our marriage has been quite blessed and he is a wonderful partner.

Everything in our life seems to happen in 4 year intervals.   We dated for 4 years before we married.  We were blessed with a son, Christopher, 4 years after our marriage and then 4 years later, we were blessed with a daughter, Carrie.

Our son is now Rev. Christopher Waldvogel and is Associate Pastor at Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church in Fargo, ND.   (Yes, Fargo !)   Our only granchild - Jacob is in Fargo.   He is six.

Our daughter Carrie and her husband John live here in St. Louis and she works for an Insurance Firm in Clayton. 

We are members of Immanuel Lutheran, MO Synod, in St. Charles, MO where I sing in the choir.  We are very proud of our Boar's Head Festival.   I have also started up a new Hospitality Committee.

I am so anxious to meet with everyone at the Reunion.   I would also like to thank all of you for your cards and words of encouragement and faith during my hospitalization and recovery.   Please keep me in your prayers while I continue with Chemo and later with radiation.  God Bless You !

October 02, 1943 bullvalley@gmail.com Anacortes WA US Retired Married 3 Mr. Vogelsmeier Venice, Italy Pick one;
Mrs. Schroer's English Class
Mr. Feldhoff teaching beginning typing
Mr. Horst Goede in German Class
Graduation at Kiel Auditorium when, thanks to many team-mates (especially Larry Brown), I received an Athletic Scholarship to U. of Missouri.

After LHSC I attended the University of Missouri on an Athletic Scholarship.  I played football four years for the “Tigers” in a very successful program.  My major was in Business and after college I played Professional Baseball for one summer.  During my time at Mizzou, I met my wife Jere (Ladue ’61), and were married in June of 1966.  We have three children scattered across the US in Orlando, Chicago, and Seattle.

Most of my career was spent in Sales & Marketing with my specialty in Industrial Food Ingredients.  I worked for several firms, including my own (Bull Valley Trading Co.)  During this time I served 8 years as President of the ASTA (American Spice Traders Association) for the Midwest.  My career started in St. Louis, then moved to Crystal Lake, IL., and now is in Anacortes, WA.  As Director of Sales/Marketing my job took me throughout North America and Western Europe.

The move to Anacortes was quite a change for this “flatlander”. We are located halfway between Seattle and Vancouver, B.C.  However, living on an island isn’t all bad.  The scenery is a combination of Northern California and Colorado.  The San Juan islands are a tourist destination.  Waking up to the sight of Puget Sound and the Islands is amazing.  If you have not visited this area I would encourage you to do so.

Today, I am enjoying retirement by being active:  Rowing in a local club, Co-President of Newcomers Plus (over 50), an active social group, and driving a school bus for our schools on a part-time basis to sporting events.  My main hobby is collecting old 45’s and LP’s from the 50’s thru the 70’s.  I have a 1953 Seeburg jukebox in my new home where I can kick back and reliive the “good old days”.

February 21, 1943 jhagma@centurytel.net St. Peters MO housewife and mother Married 1 Mr. Wallace South Dakota, Texas When I first came to LHS, I couldn't find my locker! I asked in a class if anyone could tell me where it was, and a guy said he had a locker next to mine...and both of our lockers were separate from all the other lockers..downstairs off of the locker room....it was very strange.
After high school, I found a job using the secretarial skills I had worked on in school.   I worked there until I met my husband, John Anderson, at the home of a mutual friend in 1966.  We were married in January, 1967, and had our daughter, Kristen, within a couple of years.   At that point I retired and spent my time being a homemaker and mom.

I have been active in our church, Holy Cross in O'Fallon, MO, in the Ladies Guild and other activities.  Otherwise, our lives have been fairly uneventful.  We have taken vacations to various parts of the USA.  Kristen is now the Registrar at Georgia State College in Milledgeville, GA.  John has retired from his job as a machinist at Monsanto.

After high school I worked for two years at Bussman Fuse.  Then I joined the US Airforce in 1964 and was stationed at a Thai airbase., near the Laotian border.  I came home in 1968.  I couldn’t find a job in St. Louis, so I took a job at Lockheed Aircraft in Marietta, Ga, as a Hydaulic Specialist. 

After about 6 months, I returned to St. Louis and joined the St. Louis City Police Department, where I worked for 35 years and 4 months.  During that time I returned to community college to study law enforcement.

In 1969, I married Laura Tope, and we had two sons:  Jim in 1973, who now works on boats, and Joe, in 1976, who is also now a policeman.  I have two grandsons , who I love dearly, and we are all very close. Laura and I were divorced in 1982.

After I retired in 2005, I moved to Rolla on some land which  I had purchased, and I built a new home and have been farming the land and working on perfecting my house....and enjoying life and my family!

April 10, 1943 jamesmanion@sbcglobal.net wildwood MO US retired Married 3 Wallace, Ahlbrand mexico, canada Unlike many teens today, we enjoyed our HS years immensely. Sue, FB games, BB games, parkmoor, people in general, big(?) 5, Larry's "apartment", trout lodge to mention a few.
  After graduation, Larry and I headed to Concordia in Metropolitan Seward, Nebraska.  I made it thru 1/3 of our first football practice before dislocating my elbow and missing 90% of the season.  Under “ God works in…” I became a student equipment manager and enjoyed working with all our teams and played football and tennis until graduation in 65.  Sue and I endured our long distance romance and married in July.  We’ve been blessed with three really nice kids and 9 awesome grandchilds.  All in all, it looks like it could work out for us.

 I guess this is where we put our “work history”.  I received my first call to Bethel in U. City.  After 3 yrs. I went to Lutheran North for 5 years, head football coach for 3 yrs.  I received my Masters in Math from St. Louis U. and began 27 years in the Parkway District in 73.  In 76, they opened Parkway South and I was the head football coach for 7 yrs.  The first 5 grim; the last 2 in playoffs, suburban coach of year, coached in Lion’s all star game and oh yeah, was replaced by others who didn’t do as well, but I’m not bitter.  Went on to Parkway West for 19 years as asst. football coach, def. coord, asst. math chair and administrative intern.  Life was good, I quit coaching in 94, we moved into a new home on 3 acres in West County and life was better.  Then I got a call in mid August of 98 asking me to come back to Lutheran North and fill in for the head coach who resigned the week before practice began.  It took a week to say yes (thinking it would be for a year).  But, once again under “God works in…” it turned out ok.  It turned into 10 seasons. I was an Admin. Intern at West and coached at North until retiring from Parkway in 2000.  Part time math and coach at North until retiring in 2008; as I said, it turned out ok as we were

90-29, state championship in 99, 4 semi-finals, 9 of 10 years in playoffs, coach of year honors and Metro Coaches Hall of Fame in 2010. It was a good time with great people to work with and make it work.

I taught part-time for 29 years at U of Mo., St. Louis and I keep a little busy now with classes at Maryville U. and Mo. Baptist U., building a few decks and playing golf.

 Sue and I have been blessed (thanks to God, Bonnie and my 52 ford convertible).  We enjoyed a truly great high school experience with all of you.  We are very thankful for our strong Christian basis in our lives.

 Blessings to you all and we look forward to seeing you, even in our current condition. J

September 24, 1943 charshall@cox.net Goodyear AZ US Aerospace Engineer Married 2 Horst Goede Seville, Spain It has to be hauled of to Principal Moldenhauer's office for an errant snowball while still on the school property or maybe doing the morning radio station broadcasts through station "KLHS" (Powerful 5 watts).
Short Version:
United States Navy Submarine Service; Married the delightful Mary Ellen Heep and just celebrated our 45th; Graduated BSME Rolla School of Mines, 1972; 10 years Senior Engineer, Cruise Missiles, McDonnell Douglas; 20 years Chief Systems Engineer, advanced Rocket programs, Lockheed Martin; Son Charles & wife Ann, 3 grandchildren; Daughter Amy & husband David, 2 grandchildren; retired in Phoenix, 2001; surrounded by my loving wife, and the wonderful families of my son and daughter .

Updated August 29, 2011
Long version:
As a few classmates might recall I was a little bit of a restless soul and after graduation and the summer of a nowhere job decided the day I turned 18 I would join the US Navy Submarine Service. Being the peak of the “Cold War” I ended up on a Ballistic Missile Submarine working on the rockets and Launch systems for the next 8 years. I was on the commissioning crew of the USS James Madison (named for one of our greatest forefathers) and spent a total of four years underwater in three month intervals. In the fall of 1965 I returned to St. Louis for a visit that was most fortunate for me. I went out with a childhood friend and discovered love.  We married in 1966 and started a life together in Charleston, SC. By 1969 and with Mary’s support and encouragement I separated from the Navy and after three years at Rolla School of Mines I graduated with a BS degree in Mechanical Engineering.
By this time we were the proud parents to two Ozark babies. Charles John was born in 1970, and Amy Courteney in 1972. Both born at Phelps County hospital. McDonnell Douglas was a great place to start my new career plus we were moving back to St. Louis and we could be close to the Grandparents and friends. My job was system integration for advanced Cruise Missile programs, both the Harpoon Antiship missile, and the early development of the Tomahawk cruise missile.  
But in 1981 new opportunity knocked on the door where I could get back to big rockets. Martin Marietta offered me a great promotion to move to Denver, Colorado in their Systems Engineering department. My initial assignments covered the development of ballistic missile operational hardware. Later my role as a Chief Systems Engineer on advanced technology programs took me to locations around the US and the world. Programs like the US Air Force Titan program, NASA’s Shuttle, Lockheed Martin’s Single Stage to Orbit program at the Skunkworks, and development of future manned space concepts for returning to the moon and missions to mars. It was all interesting and often exciting but by 2001 Mary and I were ready to retire. 
We relocated to Phoenix mostly because you never have to shovel sunshine. What has been most rewarding about the last ten years of retirement is that our daughter, her husband and Gwendolyn Violet (5) and Mirabel Savannah (4) live here; and our son, his wife and Ella Elizabeth (8), Charles Andrew (5), and Sophie Mae (4) also live here. They are such a joy to be around.
Mary and I also keep very busy as she has taken up quilting, knitting, crocheting, and beading. I get to support her with computer projects, poorly written patterns, and incomplete directions. I am also active within the community – I served four years as the Vice President of the Home Owners Association and still serve on several HOA and city committees.
Wish we could make it to the reunion. We would love to visit St. Louis and see our many friends. Wishing you all the best and here is some cheer to all of you.

Korea, Australia 1)trying to get home from LHSC in the St. Louis snowstorms-many times spending the night with classmates,2)staying up all night to watch the presidential election results for Mike Marty's Current Affairs class 3)basketball games at the St. Louis Sem.

BS from Iowa State University, 1965. Taught high school  and worked as a Home Economist in Business. Married Paul Schultz, also an ISU grad in 1969 and joined him in Hartford, CN.  After semi-retiring to raise our family, I obtained an AS in nursing. My RN experience includes dialysis, rehab, med-surg, teaching in an out patient diabetes center and most recently In Pt Diabetes Best Practice RN in a 700 bed hospital. I am a CDE and a CPT (Certified Diabetes Educator and Certified Insulin Pump Trainer).

I have lived in Rockville and East Hampton, CN, Jupiter-Tequesta and Stuart, FL, St. Louis, MO and presently Marietta, GA.  Paul’s expertise is the engine of the airplane, so where we have lived is the direct result of defense contracts. He most recently brought the F-22 engine through test in FL and is now working on the C-130J in GA.

Our marriage has been blessed with 3 sons. Dave is a broker for high risk insurance out of Ft. Lauderdale FL. He is married to Erin, a fellow U. of FL graduate and they have a son Zachary, 2 and 1/2.  Matt is a project manager for a design-build firm out of Jacksonville FL. He is not married and has a daughter, Ryleigh, 15, from a previous marriage. Jon is a CPA out of Atlanta GA, specializing in colleges and universities and is married to Meghan, a fellow GA Southern graduate. They have a little girl, Madelynn, 6 months.  We love the blessing of grandchildren and being grandparents.

We are looking forward to retirement, hopefully in the near future. Plans include selling our home and moving further N into the beautiful GA mountains, traveling the US, seeing the world and quality time with our sons, daughter-in-laws and grandchildren.  

We are members of Rivercliff  Lutheran Church, MO Synod, in Roswell, GA.  Rivercliff  has acquired 27 acres of land in the past few years, so the possibilities for the future are both challenging and exciting.

PS For 7 years I attended BSF, Bible Study Fellowship. It is world wide and an incredible study. It would be a wonderful thing to do in retirement. If you have a grandchild, he or she may well be able to attend the childrens' portion while you attend the study. There are both mens' and womens' groups. Learn more by checking out on the internet and calling the # in your area. It is exceptional, very well done. You won't be the same person after attending.

September 15, 1943 dmeyer24@wustl.edu Saint Louis MO US Professor Married 2 Gilbert Daenzer Hong Kong Playing basketball at Concordia Seminary field house
Attended Concordia Teachers College, River Forest, Illinois. Best thing that happened to me is I met my future wife, Judith Wangerin. We married after graduation in 1965 and went on to graduate school in geography at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale. After receiving our masters degrees over the next 3 years we went to University of Chicago. I received my Ph.D. in 1970 and Judith received hers in 1973, both in geography. We were at U. of C. during all the riots and demonsstrations over Vietnam War. An exciting time to say the least. Then off to University of Massachusets, Amherst where I was a professor of geography until 1981. Then I moved to Brown University and stayed there until I retired in 2009. Was professor of sociology. Judith was professor of geography and later associate provost at University of Connecticut until 1999. We have two children, our daughter lives in Zurich, Switzerland, with her four children and husband, and our son lives in Los Altos, California, with his three children and wife. Our children and their spouses all have MBAs. In 1999 we moved to St. Louis when Judith became Provost of Fontbonne University. Later she became President of the Lutheran High School Association. I spent next 10 years flying by Southwest Airlines each week to Providence, R.I. I enjoyed flying to work--it beat long-distance driving which I had done for over 20 years. I ended up in various media outllets as a boring example of an airplane commuter. Since 2009 I am full time as Senior Lecturer in Management at Olin Business School, Washington University in St. Louis, teaching international business. I walk to work. Since 1990 I have been doing research on Asia, and go there frequently, even now, as I work on financial firms in Asia. Judith and I live in a 17-story former apartment building, now condos, on Skinker right across from Forest Park. From the 10th floor we have beautiful views of the city and Clayton. This is our ideal home. We have always wanted to live in a high-rise building. We have always disliked gardening and spending time fixing up a house. We thoroughly enjoy living in St. Louis, going out to eat, to concerts (blues, jazz, symphony), Cardinal games, everything is convenient and cheap. Am looking forward to seeing everyone.
