Neillsville Class of 1956 Hold 55th Reunion (55th – 10 September 2011)

Members of the Neillsville High school Class of 1956 held their 55th class reunion Sept. 10 at Fannie’s Supper Club. Classmates, spouses and guests met to socialize and reminisce; a family-style dinner followed. Mary Lou Meredith, mistress of ceremonies, welcomed those attending. Out of the class of 71 graduates, 45 are remaining. Names of the deceased were read, and a moment of silence was observed in their memory.

Deceased classmates: Harry Ayers, Karen (Botnen) Trimberger, Wynn (Bruhn) Raines, Dale Bush, Donald Crockett, Alice (Gall) Wirkuty, Frederick Gutenberger, Lewis Hoffman, Harold Jacob, Lynton Jahr, Kenneth Keller, Ronald Klann, Howard Krause, Vera (Lincoln) Tanem, Cheryl (Mabie) Holt, Betty (Matousek) Currin, Gerald May, Betty (Meier) Dux, Charlotte (Ormond) Briggs, Maynard Prock, Vivian (Randall) Hotchkiss, Donald Richmond, Walter Schmidt, Maxine (Stone) Fabian, Charles Thompson, William West.
