200210 February 10, 2020



    While working on the directory for the upcoming reunion, Susan Simms, LHS ‘65, has been extremely busy these last few weeks trying to research and verify the identities of the members of the classes of '64, '65, and '66 who's passings have not been reported. Susan is not only my cousin, but also a Regent of the George Mason Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Using her computer and searching skills of programs like Ancestry and Find-a-grave, she has gathered what we believe is an accurate list of many we have not previously reported. I am sure there are still some of our Lee classmates we still do not know about, but this list is believed to be accurate.

    Normally we publish the yearbook photos when we announce the deaths of classmates, but due to the large amount of classmates we are announcing this week doing so would be impracticable. I actually did not have the time to do so this week anyway, but hope to come up with an honorable solution in the future.  

    The below list is in date of reported death order and not by class year. Please look it over carefully. If anyone sees a name listed which should not be here please let us know immediately.

Connie Ruth Wilson - LHS '65
Edward Gilbert White

        Memphis, TN - Hi folks. Sue and I have just returned from a two-week trip to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, and the day after we returned I had a small medical procedure which slowed me down for a couple of days. Hence, this issue may not be quiet up to the standards of earlier issues. I regret I am unable to recognize the lost classmates Susan Simms has discovered, and it saddens me not only at their loss, but also because I cannot honor them as I have done in the past.

    Be advised that a corps of your classmates has begun working on the plans for our next reunion and trying to insure it meets the quality of those in our past.

Save the Date!

Last Week's Name That Tune

Name That Tune

Jeffrey Fussell, LHS '66, "A little improvement this week, but still can’t get them all. The first song is a Radio X favorite. Our version is more like the Dwight Yoakam version.

“Little Sister” – Elvis Presley
“Wake Up Little Susie” – Everly Brothers
“Little Bitty Pretty One”- Thurston Harris
“Little Green Apples” = O. C. Smith

     The extended intro to “Little Green Apples” might have gotten by me without the “Little” theme. The O C Smith hit was covered by at least a half dozen “A-List” artists in the year it was released.  Roger Miller’s version is especially moving.  #5 didn’t ring a familiar chime.

Linda Collinsworth Provost, LHS  '66, got the first four correctly and wrote, "OK, this is more like it.  actual songs that I remember and recognize.  (Well, except for the last one.)  I feel as though I need just a few more notes and then the light bulb will go off.  Maybe you could hum a few bars?"
