Mary graduated with the class of 1974, not 1973 and her maiden name was Reinheart. Sorry for the mistakes.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but Scotty "the narc" died a couple of weeks ago. She battled cancer for several years and in the last few months was in a Torrance hospice. We all remember what a kind woman she was, and she never busted us for smoking. Another one of our mentors gone. She worked at South High for nearly 30 years on and off.

Way cool if I'm 86'd from your web site, as kinda what I felt going to South in 64. A bunch of little bitch rich kids now mix in all the fags and seems most appropriate. And for the response I got from the current staff member, you can suck a large penis.
From: Kevin ('72) on 2014-01-27 21:53:37 
I agree with you, RDOG. I have lost so many friends in the last 42 years since graduation it's not even funny. What I wouldn't do for one last day at South High, ditching class and having fun.

For those in the class of 1982 and for those that would have known her from other class years as I did, it is with sadness that I post the passing of the following Spartan Alumni: Lorrie Lynn Powell Lorrie Lynn Powell, age 49, passed away December 22, 2013. Lorrie grew up in the community of Hollywood Riviera and graduated from Torrance South High. Lorrie was known for her blond hair, electric blue eyes and radiant smile. Because of her exceptional artistic talent, she founded her worldwide sign business Lorrie Powell Studios. She was proud to say "Made in America, Just a Stone's Throw From Yosemite". Lorrie loved the mountains, learning about all animals, and hiking accompanied by her dog, Izzy. Thus, she chose to make her home and business in Ahwahnee, California which is near Yosemite. Lorrie's enthusiasm, positive thinking, wisdom and humor were sought after by her family and many friends. She was a "Jill of all trades" with her unique abilities and accomplishments. The bright star of Lorrie's life is her son, John "Jim" Somerville. She is also survived by her mother, June Halstead, sister, Denise Powell and brother, Britt Shuford. In lieu of flowers and to honor Lorrie, a donation may be made to Shannon Stephan/The Angel Project, California Oncology, 6121 N. Thesta Ave. #205, Fresno, CA 93710. A remembrance of Lorrie will be held in the Spring. Please sign the guestbook at www.dailybreeze.com/obits. .Published in Daily Breeze on Jan. 15, 2014

Looking for a South class of 63 ring, for husband Chris Vedborg (63). Any ideas where I might find one?

Very sorry to hear of the passing of my old track/cross country coach and driving (stick shift) instructor Mr.Richard M. Scully. He was a fine example and mentor for us. He cared enough to be a firm disciplinarian and demand our best. I always wanted to go see him again when I was in town, but sadly, I missed him by 2 months. When I tried to look him up on this trip, I found his obituary. Lesson: visit the folks you love and show your appreciation while you can. They ought to name the track after him. I remember many a late afternoon, when he would tow a piece of chain link fence around the track with his old Willys to make it decent for us to run a meet on. Rest peacefully, I'll see you in Heaven Coach. AC

Alive and well living in Colorado. The journey has been fantastic with 2 wonderful children, 40 years of Rugby which included travel all over the world, lots of wounds,[but all worth it], and much love. I'm still very fit, both mentally and physically. I have huge passion for every moment and enjoy exercise, good food, my 2 dogs, and spiritual growth. I'm a Kiwi in my heart as have lived in New Zealand alot. I love the mountains and recently returned to Colorado, bought a house in the country, and love my life. I'm involved in 2 mentoring programs for less fortunate children and have so much to give, but not near what I receive in return. Cheers and best wishes, Grant

I just registered,and tears flowed down my face to see that one of my mentors is gone. Dr Rische was a fine man and we for sure had a heart connection. He last visited me in 1984, sleeping on our couch and interacting with my family for a few days. I'll always treasure the memories of our friendship. He left a lasting impression on me from 1964 to today
