Cheryl (Cartwright) lost her fight to breast cancer on September 5, 2015. It was a two year battle that she fought with dignity, courage and a sense of humor that parallels none. Cheryl and her husband Scott Cartwright (FHS '72) have one daughter (Whitney ) who got engaged 2 days prior to Cheryl's passing. Whitney will be getting married on October 1st this year. It will be a very bittersweet event without Cheryl there in person. But we know she'll be right there laughing, singing and dancing along with the rest of us. My BFF for almost 40 years. I miss you my friend. Nancy Wickins
Marty ws known to many students at FHS. He played on the basketball team, and attended mostly honors classes. He always was very smart. Most of you knew him from school. We attended the same church, and I was his neighbor, he lived over the hill from me. On bike rides, when I was bored, I would go and visit him, his 2 brothers, his parents and their barking "hot dog" dog. Another memory is when I'd call him and we would review our trigonometry homework. When our answers did not match, his was always right. We used to borrow our older siblings IDs and go dancing at a bar out past Macedon. We never dated, but we're just good friends. I miss him, so very much. I understand he left behind a wife and 2 teenagers in Illinois.
The world lost a shining light on Christmas Day 2008. Donna was taken way too soon and the lives of those who loved her will forever feel the loss. She left behind three beautiful children, 2 girls and a boy. Her bubbly personality, laughter, kind and wise heart and beauty will remain with us always and definitely live on in her beautiful children. I miss her every day but know we will share the love of our friendship forever.
Jim was in my 6th grade class with Mr. Barnum. Though he was full of mischief he had a way of making us laugh. I remember soft ball games out at The Forman Center field (the high school was being built at that time) and Jim was a surprising team player. Patti Carini, Jeff Ward, Anne Hawkins and Cindy Kreiger are also a part of my fond memories of that year.
Mary had a beautiful smile and made us laugh. She was always willing to help a friend or host a party. Her spirit for life was an inspiration to many of us. I am grateful I was one of the many people whose lives she touched. Mary helps me remember that there are good people in the world. She is in our hearts and happy memories of FHS.
