Our condolences to classmates James and Daniel Detrich on the passing of their mother earlier this month.  The Altoona Mirror obituary is presented below:

Anna E. Detrich - June 10, 1920 - Aug. 18, 2014

August 21, 2014 - The Altoona Mirror 

Anna E. Detrich, 94, formerly of Altoona, went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Monday morning at Presbyterian Village at Hollidaysburg.

She was born in Juniata, daughter of the late Maurice and Margaret (Cline) Brooks.

She married James A. Detrich on Jan. 1, 1946, at First Baptist Church, Altoona, and he preceded her in death on Aug. 16, 1976.

Surviving are three children: Sharon A. Maurer (Carey) of Carlisle, James D. (Pamela) of Bellefonte and Daniel P. (Carol) of Hollidaysburg; 10 grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; and a sister, Verla Eggers.

She was preceded in death by a brother, Dale Miller.

Anna was a 1938 graduate of Altoona High School and retired in 1985 from the Altoona Area School District as a teachers' aide. She was a member of First Baptist Church, where she served as a deaconess and Sunday school teacher for more than 50 years.

Friends will be received from 9:30 until the 11:30 a.m. funeral service Saturday, Aug. 23, 2014, at First Baptist Church, Pastor Tyler Pepper officiating. Interment will be at Blair Memorial Park.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to First Baptist Church, 1209 17th St., Altoona, PA 16601.

Arrangements are by Mauk & Yates Funeral Home Inc., Juniata.


Classmates in the News

Update: August 22:  Tim Carter caught this video of classmate Randall Closson on a Florida TV Show today (sorry...there is a short ad that plays before the clip).

Some of our classmates made the AAHS Alumnotes this month.  You'll find an attorney who's giving his time to help current students, a video of a classmate "paying it forward" and you may even find something yummy to eat!
