When someone meets Bev, they've met someone special, giving & caring. Bev taught school most of her career &
continues to substitute teach whenever needed. She brightens any space with her presence. She keeps up with the activities of the Class of 1963 & is a great historian. She applied her knowledge, kindness, & devotion as Chairperson of both our 44th year reunion in October 2007 & the 50th Reunion in 2013.
One cannot help but admire the courage & perseverance Bev shows in the face of challenges & difficult circumstances. She is always positive & takes the time to share a smile with those around her. She is giving in her time to others; especially to those whom she cares about deeply. She accepts others unconditionally & always has something worthwhile to say. In Bev, you can always find the silver lining behind each cloud.
In the time we've known Bev, we've learned to stop & count our blessings. In Bev, one can always feel cared for & loved. Thanks for being you Bev. We appreciate you and your leadership.

The NFL's Dallas Cowboys Football Team has no better Faithful Fans than our Classmate Patsy Didway Robinson and her "Class of 60" Sister Marie Didway Delia. They had shirts made this year about Jerry Jones (owner, president, and general manager of the Cowboys).
This picture of Patsy (left) and her Sister, Marie was taken at the 2012 Cowboys Football Training Camp. The two girls were selected as True Blue Fan Club members of the day in Oxnard in July/August 2012. No one loves the Cowboys more than Patsy & Marie. Go Cowboys!
