Salem High School Class of 1959 - Latest News


08-24-2019 - Passing of Classmate Lou Slaby
We have just received word that our classmate Lou Slaby passed away yesterday, Friday, August 23, 2019. Lou had open heart surgery sometime within the last week to ten days and appeared to be recovering well. This past Thursday his condition changed and he passed on Friday. Arrangements are pending. You may send your condolences to his wife Ginny and family at 6 Elder Place, Denville NJ 07834.



03-06-2018 - Janet Sooy Shears
Janet Sooy Shears' husband Jan called last evening to tell us that Janet has been in St. Elizabeth's hospital in Youngstown since February 11, 2018.  Janet suffered a stroke initially but then subsequent to that had a problem with her colon which required surgery.  She is now in rehab but has issues with her left side and eyesight.  Janet needs our love and support and prayers.  You are a great class and we know you will let Janet know how much you care.  She is in 5517A at St. E's.  The address there if you'd like to send Janet a card is: Janet Shears, Room 5517A, Mercy Health - St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital, 1044 Belmont Ave., Youngstown OH 44501.  You can also send a card to her home and Jan will take it to her.  Janet's home address is: Janet Shears, 224 N. Bayshore Dr., Columbiana OH 44408.  Thanks for supporting Janet.



02-08-2017 - Karen Klein Whelan
Good afternoon faithful family and friends,
 
Thank you for your years of faith-filled prayers and support of Skip and Karen Whelan!
 
It is with a joy-filled, yet heavy heart that we share with you that Karen Whelan has gone home to her Savior on Sunday, January 15, 2017. She ended her life here on earth in the presence of family. She no longer suffers from her 7-year battle with lung cancer.
 
The Whelan family has set aside February 19 at 3:00 in the afternoon to gather and celebrate the life of Karen. The service will be held at Bethany Baptist Church at 713 S Hill Park Dr, Puyallup, WA 98373. Skip and the extended Whelan family would love to have you join them in remembering his wife, their mom, and their Grandma/Granny, Karen.
 
Mom and Dad were deeply impacted by the following two organizations during Mom’s bout with cancer. If you desire to remember Karen with a gift, please consider sharing with one of the two following organizations that ministered to Karen during her fight: Partner Oncology Foundation, which assisted Mom and Dad with payment for much of the chemo drug costs, or MultiCare: Hospice, who stepped in and beautifully supported and cared for mom, making her comfortable, during the last two weeks of her life. Please include “in memory of Karen Whelan” in the memo line, if you would.
 
Partner Oncology Foundation
1519 3rd Street SE Suite 260
Puyallup, WA 98372
 
MultiCare: Hospice
P.O. Box 5200
MS: 3901-1-HH (this indicates the Hospice program)
Tacoma, WA 98415
 
There are local hotels in the area available, but they will not allow us to block out rooms, dues to a local event at the Washington State Fairgrounds in Puyallup. They suggest making reservations soon as space is filling up.
 
Thank you again for partnering in prayer for Skip and Karen Whelan. Mom is whole again and praising God in heaven, but she has left a gap in life down here on earth. Please keep Dad in your prayers, that God would give him strength to continue living life as God leads him.
 
Sincerely,
Shauna Essman
 
On behalf of the entire Whelan family
