The Rockford High School class of 1959 is hoping someone out there knows where some of their graduating classmates are. The class will celebrate their initiation into the Golden R Club (graduates of RHS who have reached or passed the 50th anniversary) on June 27.

The missing classmates are Carol (Noxon) Wynsma, Vicki (Nelson) Taylor, Bernice Newton who had changed her name to April Keck, Bernie Bronsink and Diane (Cassone) Johnson. The group last met for their 45th class reunion, which was held at the Community Cabin in downtown Rockford. If you have any information about how any of these five people can be reached, please call Marilyn Foster Nowak at (616) 243-9908. Pictured are four of these five classmates from the Rockford High School yearbook of 1959.
