Mary Jubrias (White)
October 01, 1944 retired Married 2 football games bike riding to golden

I am Mary's husband of 46 years. I am writing this for Mary as she does not like to dwell on her self.
mary attended CSU for one year (long enough for us to discover each other). She then worked as a secretary at Rockmount Ranchwear.
We were married in 1965 and were blessed with a daughter and son. We have lived in Denver, Corona California, and now reside in Springfield, Mo.
Mary had a rather adventurist side to her, however she was limited due to health reasons at age 35. She found out she had cancer of  the "ta-tas" and MS. Neither of these diseases has got the best of her as she is still fun to live with.
Unfortunetly we will not be able to attend the reunion- have fun, Jack and Mary

January 07, 1944 Retired - Mountain Bell Married 2
"Ron", born in Taylor, NE, son of Wayne and Celia Ferguson (deceased) died April 9, 2012 with his family by his side in Lakewood, CO. 

Ron graduated from Wheat Ridge High School in 1962, where he excelled at many sports. After graduation, he served our country in the U.S. Navy, where he achieved the rank of Boatswain’s mate 3rdClass and was Honorably Discharged. In 1965, Ron joined Mountain Bell. After 30 years of service and achieving the title of Outside Construction Supervisor, Ron retired.

His retirement came early, as he was diagnosed with a terminal illness and given 6 months to live. Ron lived a full and rich life for 20 plus years after his diagnosis. He and Cindy (Cindy Bagby - WRHS Class of '63) were able to take two Caribbean cruises, and travel to Hawaii and Las Vegas. He also bought and rebuilt a Classic Corvette.

Ron was most proud of his children’s accomplishments, which included seeing them get married and have families of their own. He deeply loved his four grand-daughters who will miss their “Papa” very much.

We are so fortunate, as Ron has been an example to us all with his strength, courage and love.

September 25, 1944 Sr. Administrative Assistant Divorced 2

Barbara passed away November 17, 2012. This bio was added in July, 2012 by her son Eric Dendinger.

I am Barbara’s youngest son, and write this on her behalf.  Over the past few years, my mother’s health has declined considerably due to a nearly 30 year battle with diabetes.  Due to complications of the disease, her mental acuity has diminished profoundly.  She now resides in a specialty care home in Mesa, Az.

I know she wishes she could have attended the reunion, so she could catch up with long lost friends.

Mr. Hightower asked me to write something about what she had accomplished over the past 50 years. 

As far as education after high school, what do kids remember?  She would tell you she attended Stephens College in Columbia, Mo and received an AA degree in Business Administration.  She returned to Wheat Ridge and started a family.  She continued her education while raising 2 boys and finally received a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Regis College in Denver.  I remember the day she graduated (mostly from pictures, as I was still pretty young) but receiving that degree was so important to her, and quite an accomplishment. 

As far as work history, what do kids remember?  She would tell you she worked as a senior administrative assistant for Climax Molybdenum Company until she was laid off in the early 80’s.  After that she held many positions as an office manager for a local construction company, international services coordinator for a golf equipment company, and finally an administrative assistant for the commander of the US Army recruiting battalion for the state of Colorado.  She volunteered endlessly with the Arvada Chapter of the Jaycees and could always be counted on to help with the annual Harvest Festival and other activities.  I will remember she was always a hard and dedicated worker always trying to make ends meet in hard and difficult times, but she never missed a school concert, a Boy Scout meeting, or soccer game.  She returned home night after night and helped provide for her family.

As far as exotic travels, what do kids remember?  She would probably tell you she travelled a little here and there, mostly for work; seminars or conventions, except for a special time she took her eldest son to Cancun for a week and enjoyed the beaches and sun.  I will remember our week-end camping trips to the great Rocky Mountains where my mom taught my dad and her sons how to fish!  And the seemingly endless Monopoly games we would have in our little camper.

As far as hobbies, what do kids remember?  She would tell you she loved her friends and family.  Monthly bridge games, bowling on Sunday nights, crocheting blankets by a warm fire, gardening in the back yard and of course season tickets to the Denver Broncos.   I will remember my hobbies were also hers.  Anything her children did or needed she was always right behind us.

As far as family, what do kids remember?  She would tell you about her marriage with her high school sweetheart, Curt, and was sadly divorced after 20 years but remained great friends until his passing 10 years later.  She would also tell you about her 2 boys and 5 beautiful grandchildren who live in sunny Arizona, which is where she moved almost 8 years ago so she could be close to her family.

I ask you again, what do kids remember?  My mom is, and ever shall be a devoted, loving, caring and conscientious person who always gave everything she had to those who needed it.  She made our family, in every sense of the word, a FAMILY!

July 26, 1944 homemaker latenser@cox.net Married

(Gene Ann passed away July 18, 2014 due to lung cancer.)

In July￿ 2010 Frank and I went to Arizona and we were "hooked" even at 115 degrees!￿ We bought a home in Sun City West, returned to Golden and after only three months we were packed and moved.￿ Having lived in Golden for 51 years and after 13 years of marriage, that was our biggest challenge!￿

We deeply miss Colorado and our many friends, so we are greatly looking forward to the 50th Reunion!

June 28, 1944 semi-retired consultant Married 2

Gwen and I have been married for 45 years. For that she will be inducted into sainthood. We have two sons, two daughters-in-law, three grandkids with one in the oven. They are our joy...always have been and always will be. Gwen was super mom at home with the kids for years, then taught school and, for the last several years, has served on the staff of Whiz Kids Tutoring. I have had ten jobs since college - some ministry-type and some business-type jobs. All have been great experiences except one failed business adventure. Not fun. But through it all we have always been involved in some kind of ministry with kids mostly with Young Life and Whiz Kids. We have always felt that is what has made our life together as a family one that is rich and meaningful...not to mention just plain fun. Twenty years ago we were blessed to be in on the startup of Whiz Kids which is a one-on-one tutoring program with urban at-risk kids. It has been amazing!...we now have 750 tutors meeting with struggling kids every week. It’s been fun to watch and have a little hand in it. Along with our kids and grandkids, it’s made life good for us. We are looking forward to seeing everyone at the 50!

September 15, 1944 Retired Realtor/Artist NancyVogelArt.blogspot.com Married 2 Being a pom pom girl & art class with Mr Wetherbee Mr Wetherbee cheer at games
As a new retiree from 33 years of selling real estate on Fidalgo Island I finally cherish my free time.  My hubby of 44 years and I have recently bought a condo in Palm Springs where we will stay during the winter months. We will spend summers in La Conner Washington(still on Fidalgo) but just a few miles from Anacortes. Teaching art in Canada and in Washington made me realize teaching was not going to be a lifetime career. Real Estate was a good career but now  I am enjoying doing my painting & encaustics. Travels to Japan, Europe, and Canada made us realize we want more time to travel. We finally became grandparents with a wonderful boy Elliot and our two children enjoy success, health and happiness so that makes life good.  Send Nancy a MessageSend Nancy a Message
