Tulsa Central ’65

Updates 2016

Update February 4, 2016

Bobby Campbell had neck surgery yesterday and all went well. He's in St Francis, room 5219, and expects to be home in the next few days.

Update February 16, 2016

The Class of CHS '65 extends their sympathy to Linda Rogers Carr who lost her husband, Charles, suddenly this last Saturday morning Feb 13. She said there is no way she can contact all of her friends from Central at this time but would like for some of her Central friends to know this.  She asked us to let her friends know.

Charles had a doctor's appt on Tues of last week.  He was feeling a little tired and they thought it was from antibiotics he had been on for awhile.  His doctor could see something was seriously wrong.  He called 911 and sent him to the hospital where he went straight to ICU. They soon discovered he was in the final stage of liver cancer.  Linda insisted he go home with Hospice care which was his wish.  He died Saturday morning 13th shortly after midnight.  Needless to say, this was a total shock for Linda and her family.  On Monday he was fine and Friday night he passed away.  He had not been ill at all.   The funeral is tomorrow, Wednesday 17th in Rowlett, TX where they lived.

For those who might like to send cards or condolences, here is Linda's email <ccarrtech66@yahoo.com>

Re: Terror attack in Brussels

From Carol Meredith Barnes:

“Linda O'Dell Petty and I e-mailed Gust. Here is his reply.

Thank you for caring Linda and Carol,

We are all safe. Luckily, Sebastiaan my son who works at the airport had his day off!!!

It's awful and I find no words to describe the horror and the grief. We have to show no fear otherwise "they" win, and I would not allow that to happen. Let's show "them" what our values are!

Much love,

Update April 30, 2016

Donna Lewis Mason just informed us that Sandy Rowe Foster's husband passed away. Details are available at www.floralhaven.com and in Sunday's Tulsa World http://www.tulsaworld.com/…/george-rhett-foster/article_8ab2

Services are Tuesday, May 3 at 2:00 at the Floral Haven Funeral Home Chapel. Our sympathy goes to Sandy and her family.

Carol Meredith Barnes' husband, Jim, has been in St. John, 21st and Utica, for the last 10 days, in and out of ICU. (As of May 23, 36 days, Carol has been told to make final arrangements. )

From Carol's posts on Facebook:
"It's been 10 days now going from ICU to ICU and about 4 surgeries. It has been really, really tough on him. He's out of it most of the time. Don't know how much he is really aware of. It was quite serious. They repaired 3 large abdominal hernias and relocated his ostomy as the old one kept him in constant pain from exposed nerves. Poor guy was split stem to stern."

Special thanks to Charley for being a great help.

"I would appreciate more prayers and positive thoughts."

Thank you to Marilyn Thomas Howard and John Lamberton who assisted in interviewing CHS seniors nominated for the Great Spirit Award. This award is given by the Central Foundation to an outstanding male and female graduate and carries a $500 award.

Update May 23, 2016

Mark Newman has been in Little Rock undergoing a Stem Cell Transplant for his multiple myeloma.  He has finished the heavy dose chemotherapy and will have his stem cells re-implanted in the next day or two.  He feels very good and so far has no ill effects.  They both would appreciate your thoughts and prayers.
