We have just lost the Vice President and Most Popular Girl of the Class of 1958.
Larry Freeman informs us of the passing of our Lamar '58 classmate Mary Sue Hanks Reuther on May 28, 2019 at her residence in Hamilton, Ohio. (Obituary and Condolences at https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/dayton/obituary.aspx?pid=193033336).
Mary Sue appears on a dozen pages of the 1958 Orenda, as necessitated by her long list of activities and honors at Lamar. She also was in my homeroom (along with a lot of other H's), a frequent math-class study buddy, and just as perpetually cheerful as her Orenda pictures suggest.
As her obituary details, Mary Sue's post-Lamar trajectory included earning a Ph.D. in Romance Languages at the University of Missouri and serving as an Associate Professor in the Spanish and Portugese department at Miami University of Ohio for 10 years before making the obvious career switch to the ministry within the United Methodist Church. Larry Freeman reports that Mary Sue attended SMU before going on to graduate school in Oxford.
A visitation with family and a Mass of Christian Burial were held for Mary Sue June 3rd at St. Mary Catholic Church in Oxford, Ohio.
If you have memories of Mary Sue at, before, or after Lamar, please share them with your '58 classmates by sending them to me or to firstname.lastname@example.org for inclusion in the July update and in Mary Sue's In Memoriam entry on the website.
