Sadly reporting the death of Marsha (Adkins) Mead from the class of 1971. Marsha and I went all 12 years together in school at East Rainelle, Rainelle and G. West. She was a teacher at Bluefield College and will be sadly missed. I can tell from posts on FaceBook that she touched many, many lives during her career. That makes 23 from the Class of '71 at West.

Early Sunday morning, December 30, 2012, our dear friend JD Shaver passed away at the heartland nursing home. JD is at Smathers Funeral Home. Apparently, the family wants him cremated with no service. Thank you Andy Aide Pendleton for letting us know. We will miss our good friend. He had a good heart. I remember his many smiles at the Reunion before last and it was fitting that he was the parade Grand Marshall.
