Linda Carr Langley
Sunday, January 1, 2012

I am looking forward to bringing my husband of 34 years of marriage and joining the festivities at the reunion. We have 8 children and are retired. My husband graduated from the BYU with a master's degree in Physics. We keep busy tutoring one of our sons in college as well as keeping up with our children and grandchildren and doing personal history. I have attended the University of Utah where I took advanced classes in business and graduated from LDS Business College with an associate degree in Secretarial Science. I have worked as a secretary for the Bureau of Reclamation, Hill Air Force Base, LDS Church/ Missionary and Membership Depts., and the Council of the Twelve office. I also served a mission in the Northern States.

My greatest accomplishment has been a mother of 8 children with my husband and a grandmother of 12 wonderful grandchildren. Hope to see many classmates at the upcoming reunion.

How could it possibly be 50 years since we all graduated?  I'm grateful that the reunion is in September, we return in August from 23 months serving in the Southeast Africa area as Auditors/trainers for the LDS Church.  We trained in 23 different African countries traveling 88,000 miles within the African Continant.  What a "ride" it has been.   Our 5 children, their spouses  and 5 grandchildren are thrilled that we have returned.  What life holds for us next is unknown, but I'm sure it will be interesting.  Looking forward to seeing old friends!!

Suzanne Jeppson (Tate)
June 12, 1944 SLC UT homemaker Married 5

I loved high school, loved learning and enjoyed the best classmates in the world!  Remember when we paid 19 cents/gallon of gas due to neighborhood gas wars! 

I experienced a BYU semester in Salzburg, Austria studying voice and piano at the Mozarteum Music Academy and performed in a chamber choir throughout Europe; however, I graduated from the U of U in education having paid tuition by waitressing, teaching piano, ballet and selling clothing at Jak's Bridal Arts. 

As a member of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir for 21 years, I performed throughout the USA, Europe, Japan, Korea, Russia, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Israel. Travels have taken me to 38 countries.

Other church service has included serving in most auxilliaries as well as the General Church Music Committee, and as Nevada Las Vegas LDS Mission President's wife, and Area Seventy wife.  

Best of all, I married our East High School classmate, Warren Tate.  We have 5 children (including a set of twins), have 20 grandchildren (including a set of twins and triplets) and they all live in the Salt Lake Valley area. Whew!!!  

Life's meaning, focus, and purpose certainly evolve over a lifetime of joys and heartaches that help stretch us.  Raising a family and participating in micro-credit loans to third-world countries have deepened life's meaning. 

With age creeping up, I find new ways to attack the day, have slowed down my golf swing, and frequently walk instead of jog.  And it's OK!!!

Wallie Rasmussen
Salt Lake City UT Attorney Married 4
Following the East High years, I majored in Mining Engineering at the University of Utah, obtaining a BS degree.  This was followed by a law degree from the same institution.  By that time, Harriet Richards, from Farmington, and I were married and we accepted a position in the Law Department of Humble Oil and Refining Company, a subsidiary of what is now Exxon Mobil Corporation.  I spend 37 years with ExxonMobil with assignments in Houston, Denver, and West Virginia.  The last few years of my career were with the Exploration group of the company where I had the opportunity to negotiate various oil transactions around the world.  I started my career working on the Trans-Alaska oil pipeline and concluded it negotiating with two other oil companies to develop an Alaskan natural gas pipeline.  Three of our four children live in the Eastern half of the United States, along with seven of nine grandchildren, so we travel a bit.  Both my wife and I served LDS Church missions and recently completed a senior mission with the Temple Department of the Church.  Send Wallie a MessageSend Wallie a Message

January 31, 1944 Lehi UT Retired Married 6

After reading all of our classmates' successes, exotic travels, accomplishments, titles, talents, occupations, professional associations, educational achievements and community involvements, I have come to the conclusion that I am extraordinarily ordinary.  I am so impressed with everyone.  It just proves the greatness of EHS Class of '62!

I did not go to college, but I was hired as a legal secretary for an Assistant Attorney General for the State of Utah right out of high school, thanks to skills acquired at East High.

My high school sweetheart (Francis Gill, EHS Class of '60) and I married in 1964.  I continued to work for the state for another year.  My husband graduated from the U of U and taught junior high school science in Granite School District for thirty-one years and retired in 1999 with all of his mental faculties still intact. 

During the years of child bearing and rearing, I was able to stay home with our children and worked at temporary office jobs when the need arose.  We were blessed with six children, one of whom is deceased.  We now have eleven grandchildren.  What a joy our family has been for us.  After our youngest child was in school, I went to work full time for a labor union as an administrative assistant for twenty-three years and retired in 2008.  We lived in Salt Lake six years, Sandy nine years, South Jordan twenty-seven years and now in Lehi for the past six years.

My husband and I have served a thirty-month LDS Church service mission at the Family History Library in Salt Lake, and we just began another service mission at the Family History Training Center in Orem.

Life is good.  We have good health with just a few minor maladies.  All of our children live nearby, and we enjoy being with them.

Salt Lake City, UT UT Working part time for a financial planner Married 5

  I worked for a podiatrist for seven years, and have now worked for a financial planner for eleven. I only work on Fridays so I can take care of three of my grandchildren.

We have five children, three sons and two daughters, who all live here in Utah. Our two sons live across the street from us, so we see our grandchildren a lot. We have 13 grandsons and 4 granddaughters, and a great-grandson who will be one in February.

I am so glad my husband and I have had the opportunity to travel. We took our family to Germany when they were young when the Berlin Wall was still up. It was quite an experience for all of us. Raimund and I have gone five other times to Europe. The last time we spent time with his sister and her husband in Berlin, where they are serving a mission. We also have been on two cruises, which is my favorite. We went once to Alaska and once to the Panama Canal. Yellowstone and the sand dunes are another family favorite. We enjoy snowmobiling and 4-wheeling and try to have a lot of fun.

We have had some big trials also in our lives. Raimund was diagnosed with renal carcinoma in 2006, but he is a fighter. He has gone through chemo and radiation, and is still fighting. Keep us in your prayers. This has been one of the hardest things in my life—to see my sweetheart and companion go through this sickness. We will not give up. I am not shy like I was in high school, and I have learned a lot through these experiences.

My husband served as Bishop twice, and it was one of our joys in life to serve our Heavenly Father.  He is also writing a book about his life to share his life in Germany, and what he went through growing up.

My thoughts for the future are that my husband and I have many more years together. I live one day at a time. I hope to see you at the reunion this year and will be looking forward to further information.

Bonnie Bronson (Bryner)
January 29, 1944 Salt Lake City, UT Homemaker Married 5
Life has been good to me! East High was the best school to graduate from, and you may have noticed, that many East High graduates marry each other. 

I married Wally Bryner (one year ahead of me at East), graduated from the U of U in Psycology, and then stayed home to raise 5 wonderful children.        

Wally was a Obstetrician Gynecologist at Bryner Clinic. He was a great doctor and my best friend. He is now retired and we get to tend grandchildren and bug our kids.

We had the privilege of living in Mongolia for 2 years when Wally was a Mission President for the LDS Church.  Loved it there!

Some of the wonderful things that our kids are doing are: 

                 *daughter-- became a nurse,
                 *husband-- owns his own furniture manufacturing business  
                 *daughter-- creative sewer
                 *husband-- in Afganistan, fliesApache helicopters
                 *daughter-- well known YA author and received a Newbery Honor for one of her books.
                 *Husband-- Computer genius
                 *Son-- Partner in computer business
                 *wife--Fabulous artist

I can tell that I'm getting older and I want to be able to enjoy all life holds for me.    

I hope we all will be strong and healthy for many years to come.
