Our 50th reunion was held on October 3th, 2015 and was a smashing success - really!. Many thanks to Tom and Joanne Fillippo for hosting Saturday night's party as well as taking part in the reunion committee with Carol (Givens) Wiig, Bob Hutchison, Sally (Kiedaisch) Tidball, Sue (Morrison) Teitelman, and Wain Schroeder!

Ruth Gold West 1927 - 2015

Ruth Gold West passed away on October 12, 2015.  Many members of Great Valley's Class of 1965 will always remember Miss Gold as a teacher who left a very positive mark on their lives.  For that matter, MANY students' lives from General Wayne, Great Valley, and Malvern Prep were impacted by her teachings in Biology.  More about Ruth's life can be seen in her obituary on line at http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/dailylocal/obituary.aspx?n=ruth-gold-west&pid=176102165&fhid=15296).

In tribute to her many years of teaching and the many lives at Great Valley she touched, the Great Valley Class of 1965 would like to plant a tree on Great Valley's property with a small plaque.

If you would like to contribute to the establishment of this memorial for Ruth, a fund has been created and is being managed by Class of 65 Elaine (Kulp) Marziani who was Ruth's care giver leading up to and including her final days. Donations can be sent to Elaine at 23 Fairview Road, Paoli, PA. 19301 and made out to the Ruth Gold West Memorial Tree Fund.  Elaine with be coordinating the tree's procurement and location, as well as the small plaque.  This fund will be closed after December 31, 2015 – all contributions should be made by then so that an appropriate tree and plaque can be selected for spring planting.
