Pat Harder Barney '60
senior year! Pat was nominated for her
outstanding FHS SPIRIT!
Pat was nominated by Herman Weber.
"I would like to nominate
Patricia Harder Barney for the award.
Pat volunteered to help me compile and verify the
class roster for our 50th reunion.
Pat spent countless hours doing internet research
and "googling" of directories, obituaries,
tax roles, public records and ancestry records;
making phone calls to classmates and their relatives;
writing letters and whatever else it took
(including, we suspect, a little magic)
to locate 98% of the approximate 235 classmates.
Some of the people found had not been heard from since
graduation over 50 years ago. One classmate's passing
was verified by tracking her though an aunt's obituary
which contained the aunt's sister's name, whose obituary
named the classmate as a relative. The aunt's sister's
son was able to verify the classmate's death.
Another classmate asked Pat,
"How on earth did you find me?"
Pat did an amazing job and
throught it showed her FHS Spirit."
for your dedication to FHS
You deserve to be HONORED!
