Mark Murray's Mother Betty Murray Ratterree

Our classmate Mark Murray lost his Mother recently:

Betty Murray Ratteree, age 90, entered the gates of Heaven on Tuesday, January 15, 2019. She was born in Abilene, Texas to Lloyd and Lorena (Dillard) King on Monday, August 6, 1928. She is preceded in death by her first husband Harlan Murray, second husband Jim Ratteree and sister Virginia Henderson. Left to cherish her memory are son Mark Murray; daughter Jeanette Gascoigne and husband Miles; sister Laura Mahler and husband Clyde; granddaughter Tiffany Brush and husband Seth; granddaughter Heather Gascoigne; great grandchildren Kyler and Jaxon Brush along with numerous extended family and loving friends.

A memorial service to celebrate the wonderful life Betty lived will be held at Plymouth Park United Methodist Church, 1615 Airport Fwy in Irving, at 11:00 am Saturday, February 16, 2019.

Please check HERE to view a personalized obituary from the family when it is available or to send flowers and/or condolences to the family of Betty Murray Ratteree (King)

Next 50th Reunion Meeting!

There is a lot of work to do before our 50th Reunion.  Some of the work will require volunteers to be in Irving while other work can be done anywhere, as long as you have a phone.  If you'd like to help out, please join us at the next meeting or click on Contact Us above to send us an email.

If you're in Irving and would like to join in the work toward our reunion, our next meeting is:  Sunday, February 24th at 2PM at El Fenix at 3911 West Airport Freeway in Irving.

Hope to see you there!

50th Reunion Survey

Our reunion committee needs a ballpark headcount of attendees and guests for our event as well as help locking down a date, and we need your input!

If you haven't taken the 50th Reunion Date Survey, please help us pick the right venue for our Reunion and select the best date by clicking on 50th REUNION SURVEY to the left.

Thank you for your involvement in planning our 50th Reunion.

Reunion Lost Items

During a previous Reunion, three lapel pins were misplaced.  The pins were Toy Tiger, National Honor Society and I-Teen pins.  The owner would love to find them.

If you know where these might be, please click on Contact Us, and let us know.

IHS Class of 1969 - 50th Reunion!

When you left Irving High in 1969, did you ever think we'd actually HAVE a 50th Reunion?  If you're like most of your classmates, the thought never crossed your mind!  At the time, there were more immediate things to think about such as finding a job or going to college or getting married or joining a military service or well, you have your own unique story!  But at last, our 50th Reunion has arrived.  Can you believe it? 

Work toward our 50th Reunion is underway!  See announcements above.  One is about 50th Reunion Meetings while the other is about a 50th Reunion Survey.

Stay Tuned...we'll be sending out information about dates, hotels, and activities as soon as we can!

Class Ring Found

I received the following email from Judith who found an IHS Class of 69 ring:

Hello I wanted to see who I could get in contact about a lost class ring I found. I've had it for about 10 years. I was going through my saved memories and found it again! I really want to get it back to the person that lost it. I found it in Harlingen Texas at a movie theater I worked at. I hope the person who lost it is still in contact with you all.  The initials JDP are engraved on the inside.

If you lost a class ring in Harlingen, Texas, contact Judith at email address below.  Also, please let our website know too.

Birthday Display Bug

The developer of our underlying website software identified a bug preventing a few birthdays from being displayed on our home page.  If you would like classmates to view your birthday (Birthday checkbox on your Profile page) and your birthday is not displayed a few days in advance of and through your birthday, please let me know.

Thanks to classmate Wayne Hartman for bringing this to our attention when his June 30th birthday was not displayed.  Happy Belated Birthday Wayne!

Retiring? Moving?

Hey classmates!

Many of us have used our work email addresses as the primary method for your classmates to contact you when sharing Class of '69 activities.  With many of us retiring and/or moving, we would like to suggest that you update your contact information if it isn't current.  

We'd hate to lose contact with you!
