Obituary for Mary Lee Ruddle
Click here to see the obituary for our teacher Mary Lee Ruddle:







Dear Northwood Classmates, while going through some old VHS tapes, I came across several hours of video from the 30th reunion in 1990. Please remember, these tapes are almost 30 years old and needed to be converted first to DVD, then to a format that the computer could read, before uploading them to YouTube, so please excuse the poor quality. The camera was usually sitting on a tripod therefore only those in front of the camera are on the tape. Not everyone at that reunion is visible and it is not the almost three hours of video recorded but there is about two hours now uploaded. Click here to view. Carol Cremonese also contributed to these videos with their camera.
