Profile Updated: October 14, 2019
Residing In Salt Lake City, UT USA
Spouse/Partner Wynn Bartholomew (deceased)
Occupation Elementary school teacher (retired)
Children Daniel, born 1977; married with 3 children; accountant for Amazon; lives in Seattle, WA.

Jason, More…born 1979; married with 4 children; administrator at LDS Hospital; lives in Salt Lake City, UT.

Spencer, born 1980; college math teacher; lives in Orem, UT.

Timothy, born 1982; married with 4 children; accountant for Amazon; lives in Seattle, WA.

Jonathan, born 1984; married with 2 children; civil engineer for West Tech; lives in Salt Lake City, UT.

Darren, born 1986; married with 2 children; registered nurse at U. of Utah Medical Center; lives in Salt Lake City, UT.

I graduated from the University of Utah ("Go Utes!!") with two degrees in Education. I have taught school in Utah, Virginia, California, and Texas, and recently retired after 27 years of teaching.

My husband Wynn (deceased) and I were active in Scouting leadership for many years, and were both trainers at Philmont Scout Training Center in New Mexico. Being the parents of 6 sons, it was inevitable that we would be involved in Scouting.

My favorite hobbies are cooking, entering cooking contests, and entertaining guests in my home. I have represented Utah in national cooking competitions, which presented wonderful opportunities to travel and meet new people.

My "second home" is Hawaii, where I lived during each summer as a single school teacher; I have also traveled throughout Europe, and parts of Canada and Mexico. Now that I'm retired, I look forward to more travel opportunities.

My questionable "claim to fame" is that I was friends with serial killer Ted Bundy, and a camp counselor (Brighton MIA Camp) to Rosanne Barr.

My plans for the future are to serve on a mission for the LDS Church, to enjoy my grandchildren (13 and counting....) and to travel. Having survived cancer and two open-heart operations, I'm grateful to have made it to the 50th EHS Reunion!!

School Story

My favorite memories of school activities involved marching with the Pep Club, performing in Dance Concerts, and most of all, finding the joy of choral music in the ACapella Choir and Madrigals. Lorraine Bowman taught us so much! My friendship with the people in Madrigals has always been so very special to me; our 40th year reunion was priceless.

My favorite memorable moment was during my junior year at EHS when, for the first time in 50 years, our school took State in basketball!! I still remember that we cheered for about 20 minutes straight at the end of the game. My brother Craig made a big banner out of a white sheet with red paint, and waved that banner all throughout the game. We had a big celebration in the EHS gym afterwards, with the State trophy under a spotlight in the middle of the gym floor. What a great moment!

Jill----HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I love to remember how you and I used to dance around and sing along to the soundtrack of "West Side Story." During the the song "Officer Krupke" we wondered what a "social disease" was referred to by Riff. We were SO YOUNG!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Karen! You and I surely know what it's like to have a birthday amid the hustle and bustle of the holiday season! But I hope that you'll take time to truly enjoy your special day! Perhaps sometime I'll see you at The Ridge when you and Patty visit Jodee. I'm especially glad that Jodee has special friends like you and Patty to visit her! Love, Carol (Hall) Bartholomew

Recently I returned from a tour of Italy, and I discovered that one of the ladies in our tour group was a friend of mine at Bryant Junior High School!! (Small world!!) Her name is CYNTHIA BENSON LOVELL. She asked me to give a big HELLO to some friends of hers from way back then: DAVID GOATES (who used to deliver her newspaper,) JEAN SPERRY, ANN COOMBS, SUSAN EVANS, STEVEN TOPHAM, BEVERLY BIGLER, JANICE DARLEY, GREG PACK, BETTY GOUT, and CAROLYN DARIUS. I am sending her a photocopy of our "yearbook" (booklet) which I still have! It's so fun to reconnect with friends from our past!

I just discovered that one of our classmates, Jody Monsen Kennedy, is a resident at a Senior Care Center where I serve weekly as a volunteer. She is in the Memory Care Unit. The volunteers who serve with me and who have met Jody have commented that she is "a sweet, cheerful, adorable woman," which is exactly the way I remember her at East High back in '65. Friends and family visit her often, which is gratifying to know.
I will be visiting Jody soon, even though I'm pretty sure she will not remember me. We didn't know each other well at East High, other than to say "Hi" in the halls between classes.

Every day of our lives is a gift! We each do our best to make the most of our time here in mortality. Even now, Jody is a source of joy and happiness to many. We can each learn from her example.

Steven! You are such a hero to us all, the way you took charge of our reunion and did such a fantastic job!! You wouldn't be interested in a 60, would you.....???? I have stored away all my East High displays, so they're ready to go! Thank you also for keeping our website up and running. You're the BEST!! Carol-Ish

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Marty! My favorite memory of you is the photo of you on the front page of the Deseret News in 1964, making a layup shot at the State Basketball Championship game, with the headline, "Sun Rises In the East!" What a great victory that was!!! After 50 years, East finally won a state championship in basketball!!!
