Obituary: Dick Sherman W'60

Hi Everyone,

This is a year late but I wanted everyone to know that my dad, Dick Sherman, class of Winter 1960 passed away on January 15th 2013 after a 3 year battle with Melanoma.

Dick married Barbara Burnett (Granada Hills class of 1963) in 1964. They were married for 45 years until her passing in 2009.

Dick and Barbara lived in Los Angeles, San Diego, Hilo, Hawaii and Tampa, Florida. After moving back from Hawaii, they bought an RV and traveled around the country for a few years before settling in Tampa. He spent his last few years with me in San Diego.

Dick worked in the finance and insurance industries and loved to hunt and fish, passions which he enjoyed to the fullest in Hawaii.

Dick and Barbara are buried in the Veterans Memorial Cemetery near Tampa, Florida. They leave behind one son.

Obituary: Judy Inglehart W'61

I would like to report the death of Judith Maureen (Inglehart) Wilkins, W'1961, on August 19, 2010, in Billings, Wyoming. Judy was predeceased by her parents and survived by her children, Heidi Post, Amber Stewart, Daisy Hoffmann, and Alex Wilkins; and her sister, Nancy Kingston. She was also survived by 14 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. Judy was an acclaimed photographer, artist, and master gardener, winning several prizes and awards for her accomplishments, as well as for her coking and baking. She had also performed in several local theatrical productions of plays and performed as an extra in movies. She was especially proud of her speaking part in the movie, "Amazing Grace and Chuck." Professionally, Judy had a long and varied career as a health care professional and was employed for the last 20 years as a registered nurse. Judy loved to travel, having visited most of the United States, as well as several international destinations. In December 2009, Judy retired as a psychiatric nurse in a private mental health practice. A few months later, she took a cruise to Puerto Rico to celebrate her retirement. She had several plans to travel and visit family and friends, when her life was cut short by an illness. Her laughter, excellent cooking, and zest for life are missed.

Thank you.

Nancy Kingston (sister of Judith (Inglehart) Wilkins)

RE: Joel Deregla (Class of 1987)

born December 3rd 1969 and passed on October 18th 2006 To any Monroe high school alumni from 1984-89 that may have known him. I am sorry to announce the death of my good and close friend Joseph deregla. I talked with him on the 17th of October 2006 and he passed away on the 18th of October 2006 and I was devastated to find out that I lost a great and close best friend with so many memories of high school from 1984 up to the present time late 2006."the best of times" we managed to keep in contact over 20 years as we shared many memories from back in the day that can never be taken away..

Joel was fun to be around from varsity football to classroom jokes which I can remember to this day as well as off the campus where the real unforgettable times where great through the years..Joel always recorded VHS tapes from our high school years "many of them and countless hours all the way up to the present time including audio tapes and many of us had the privilege to be on them which created great memories with many people associated with his family friends and of course his personal keepsakes . Joel has 3 beautiful children that I have the privilege to know and watch grow and a legacy that will be zestfully alive.... we will miss Joseph deregla as I know he is watching all of us that made an impact in his life and I will never forget our personal memories that actually were some of the best times I ever got to take part in throughout our years.

I remember telling Joel that our 20 year reunion was coming up and I know he would have liked to physically be there but in spirit he will definitely be there to share in our celebration as he is celebrated now and forever and he will never be forgotten from our hearts.

take care my friend may you rest in peace..
