Anne Heron and hubby Ernie Spell (Class of '59)
Hank Degenaars (Class of '59) and Nancy (Spoerer) Degenaars
One of our Music Teachers -- "Miss Virginia Brucato" (at that time) !! Remember her?
She taught us music in the Highland Avenue Elementary School. As Pat Rizzuto remembers, he said that
she wouldn't let us sing the Marine Corp hymn since we all said "corpse" instead of "Core"....!! :=)
At the Class of 1959 reunion, these Class of 1961 women helped beautify the event:
(L to R): Anne Heron Spell, Lillian Hanas Goldstein, Betty Nagelhout, and Nancy Spoerer Degenaars
