Raymond Lowell Shideler

It saddens me to notify you and the class of Raymond's death on June 22, 2016, of which I just learned today in a note from his wife, Rosemarie. I spoke with her at home in Newburgh, where she and Ray lived for many years and raised their family. She is doing well, and her daughter was with her. She spoke of his Christian faith and was comforted knowing that Ray is now with the Lord. She has sold the home in Newburgh and will be moving to Myrtle Beach, SC, on October 1 to live with her daughter.

On behalf of the class asked if I could assist her and the family. She was appreciative but indicated everything was falling into place. She said she would write after the move so that members of the class could keep in contact.
