Debbie Sawyer
Debbie Sawyer
Class of 1973
(Passed date unknown)
Not sure the correct date that Debbie passed but talked to her brother Hurman years ago about it. Debbie passed in her very early 20's. She was a sweet beautiful girl, very shy. I think she was good friends with Mary Jenkins. Not sure if she was in the class of 1973 or 1974. I spoke to a cousin of hers this year on facebook but didn't get to much info on what happened to Debbie, her passing was due to a medical condition Herman said and I think he said she passed in her sleep.

Class of 1977
Passed Jul 12, 2000
Karla went to be with the Lord July 12, 2000 at the age of 41. Her son Thomas Stephen Keating Campbell who was only 5 when she died is now 15 and 6'1". My mother Betty Keating White is still grieving. Hardly seems like 10 years has gone by with out her. We miss her dearly. If anyone who knew and loved Karla, would like to contact us, it sure would help our mother and family to hear from you. Have a great summer and we look forward to hearing from our alumni soon. By the way , if you go down to the boardwalk and look at the bench by the 27th Street Dairy Queen off to your left facing the ocean, you will see a bench with a plaque in memory of Karla.
Let's celebrate her life by having a big pool party in her memory at the house in Alanton this summer.
