"I was one of the graduates in the last graduation class of the school in 1970. In looking at a
HS graduation picture, my cap and gown was red and white, which may have been the school colors at that time.
There were around 87 students in that last graduating class. I will have to dig out my yearbook
to be sure of the number. In my 4 years there, we had a Mission Club, which I was a member of. We had Future Teachers
of America, Choir, Drama and Sodality. In 1980, we had our ten year reunion, which I attended. A 25 year reunion
was held, which I did not attend. 2010 will be our 40 year reunion, but so far I have not heard anything. I have
been searching the internet for that, which is how I found your website."
From Mary Lou (Barwig) O'Brien (class of 1954): "Hi, I just found out about this link tonight after having dinner with my daughter
and her family. I mentioned that I would like to locate some of my friends from Cardinal Stritch High School.
I graduated in June of 1954 but also had friends from
the classes of ‘52 and ‘53. My wonderful son-in–law emailed me this link tonight. I currently reside in Texas but lived at 5621 N. Neva Ave. during
high school years. (One of my sisters lives at that address now.)
I have so many happy memories from my years of 1950-54. Sister Valencia
was the principal and Sister Lucille Marie was also a nun there. I remember her so well
because she was one on my mother’s best girlfriends! So I had to behave very well, which wasn’t easy
I do still keep in touch with some of my girlfriends but haven’t heard of a reunion
since our fabulous 50th one on Oct. 9, 2004.......we were going to do it again 5 years later, but haven’t. I
would love to help out getting another for right now.....who has to wait for another special year???
If you have any info on who I can
contact or how to get another reunion going for class of ‘54 and also how to locate some people from class of ‘52,
I would appreciate it. You have my address and I have the one below that was on the link. I am also on Facebook."
