The Sunken Gardens 2017 theme is "Purple Reign".

During our LHS years, "Rebecca at the Well" stood in the lower fountain in the Sunken Gardens.  "Rebecca" was created by Ellis Burman, a WPA sponsored sculptor who also created "The Smoke Signal" dedicated Sept. 12, 1935 in Pioneers Park.

Click here for an LJS interview with Ellis Burman's son Tom, a special effects artist, who returned to Lincoln from Hollywood to see his father's work. 


Good News! Mary Thorpe Dolce reported from Naples, Florida that she and husband John are well and safe after riding out Hurricane Irma last weekend. They are still without power, with many downed trees, so are staying with a friend.

There are places I remember,

All my life, though some have changed,

Some forever, not for better,

Some have gone and some remain,

All these places had their moments,

With lovers and friends I still can recall.

Some are dead and some are living...

In my life, I've loved them all.

..."In My Life" written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney

Thanks to Betty Hunt Foster for sending this song.

Help Us Remember


Our mascot, the LINKS, exemplifies perfectly the idea of connection, reliance and trust.  As time passes, these connections are strengthened by recalling memories, conversations, creating new website messages and in sharing photos. 

In life and death, we honor our classmates.  The “In Memory” section is dedicated to our deceased classmates.  Here, we celebrate and pay tribute to their lives.

Your input is appreciated.  Please click on “Contact Us” to reach Cathy Stump Rauch or Donna Filbert Ewoldt.


Thank you for sharing your personal stories about our deceased classmates on our IN MEMORY page. Your comments brighten the memories of those who have gone before us and help us to better connect with each other. We will always remember these special friends.
