Class 1925 Class Reunion Booklet
Contributor: Rbemis01 Created: 4 years ago Updated: 4 years ago
Spanish Fork Class of 1925
I found this booklet from a Reunion held for the Spanish Fork Class of 1925, saved by my mother Lois Brockbank Rowe. From everything I read I am thinking this reunion would have been in 1970, with the sketches being collected a year earlier. It was badly faded, but the lists of Class members, sketches they wrote, and where they were living I found interesting so I thought everyone might like a look. I will try to link these sketches to the appropriate person. (Hopefully these will be correct).
This booklet is very hard to read as it was mimeographed and has faded badly. I will do the best I can to recreate the information. This booklet lists sketches, teachers, notes, information and addresses. This reunion was going to be held in 1970. In later years when there were less and less living members, they started holding these reunions almost every year. In 1925, Loren A. Anderson was the principal, and was still alive at this time. Teachers still alive were Dave Bowen, Leslie Grooms Hales, Ray Hales, Wallace Brockbank, F. J. Faux, Will Holt, Zina Johnson and Percy Hanson.
Those who had passed away since their last reunion were: Alvin Atwood, Merle Boyack, Mary Brockbank, Alden Dedrickson, Eleanor Evans, Wayne Francis, Waldo Hagan, Frank Johnson, Dean Jones, Helen Markham, Ralph Peay, Rachel Leyshon, Mary Rigtrup, William Richie, Levi Sorenson, Kathryn Lewis, Ross Huff, Lew Evans. (Names very hard to read - Sorry for errors) Church numbers (000-0000) typed in is to be able to connect these stories to the person listed. Those without numbers I could not find)
Senior Class Officers for class of 1925:
Archie Gardner - President
Lois Brockbank Rowe - Secretary/Treasurer (my mother)
Eleanor Stark and Waldo Hagan - Councilmen
Listed are those who submitted life sketches, including their addresses. Any errors in this part are due to not being able to read the information.

Willis Hill - 178 South Escalante Drive, Spanish Fork, Utah - Spouse: Lucy Levanger (KWZ9-NLB)

I have taught school in the Nebo District for 37 years (principal all but 2) and have enjoyed all of these hard years. I have always been interested in livestock so naturally I would lean toward the ranching business. I have owned sheep and cattle all my life (because of this I plan to quit teaching this spring). Due to my interest in livestock and in young people I have worked in the Livestock Shows of the state all my life. I have had about all positions in the church except that of Bishop and President. (Still have my application in for both of them). I married Lucy Levanger. We have had three children and four grandchildren. Nothing to brag about, just darn good kids. Lucy has been a good wife who has let me do what I want to do. We have had many worthwhile experiences together making many friends on our many trips to places of interest as well as all those at home. Our future plans: fish in Strawberry in the summer time, Arizona for the cold spell in the winter, work hard on the ranch, drink coffee at Jacks Cafe to discuss politics and church, and just do what I want to do, when I want to do it.
