Welcome... this page is dedicated to those classmates of the Glendale School System (GSS) and surrounding Cow Creek Valley rural schools of the early 1900s such as Galesville, Azalea, and Windy Creek  who live in our memories forever.  Take a moment to turn your computer's sound on, relax, and reflect on those folks that have gone on before us.

It is divided into seven parts. The first five parts are lists of classmates from the Glendale School System that have passed on. The first covers those classmates that attended school in the 00s and the 10s.  The second covers those classmates that attended school in the 20s, and 30s.  The third covers those classmates that attended school in the 40s and 50s. The fourth list covers those from the 60s and 70s.  The fifth covers those from the 80s, 90s & 2000s.  The sixth part lists those faculty, staff and boosters that gave so much.

The seventh  part is a Personal Memories Page dedicated to deceased long time residents of Glendale that may or may not have been students at Glendale. They all, however, lived in the Glendale School District and paid taxes and gave other support so that all that wanted could get an education.  

The first list spans the two decades right after the arrival of the 1900.  As you look over the names we ask that you reflect on these people’s lives and the times in which they lived.  This first list has many of the names that are well recognized are the families that first settled the area. 

The  second list spans the two decades of the 20s and 30s.   Some of children lived through the great fire of 1928 that swept through Glendale destroying most of the wooden buildings including the two-story school built in 1903. Others graduated during the Great Depression and found times very tough. In fact some found it so tough that they had to quit school and go to work to help support their families.

The third list covers those students of the 40s and 50s. These were the students who went to school during the times of World War II and the Korean War.  They saw the many changes of growth after World War II. There were many opportunities for work in these decades. The community of Glendale saw many sawmills operating throughout the region. It was the time for watching the birth of rock and roll.  

The fourth list covers those classmates that went to school in the 60s and 70s.  This was the time for assassination of the President, people going off to fight and die in Vietnam, the growth of distrust in our government system, and the beginning of much greater environmental  challenges and the associated reduction of lumbering around Glendale.

The fifth list covers those classmates from the 80s and 90s.  It was the time of the technology explosion and all the good and bad that it included.  Life became easier in many ways, but it still saw the loss of our youngsters to such causes as illness, accidents, or drugs.  They passed away before their prime and never had a chance to achieve their full potential but they remain in our memories forever.

The sixth area covers those faculty, staff and boosters from the early part of the last century until the latest portion.
