ANNOUNCEMENTS

DEATH OF JACKIE PAHL LASHLEY:  Jackie died on January 8, 2021, at the age of 71.  The daughter of Dr. Ben and Billie Pahl, Jackie graduated from Kearney High School in 1967, after serving as a Varsity Cheerleader and winning the "Miss Kearney" pageant in 1968.  In 1970, Jackie married Michael Lashley and had two children, Ben and Amy.  In 1973, the family moved to North Platte where Jackie was a stay-at-home mom.  Once her children were in school fulltime, Jackie worked at Whitaker Furniture store, and in 1985, she got her real estate license and worked at Century 21 Wilkinson Agency.  For six years, Jackie was Vice President at the North Platte Chamber of Commerce, then moved into commercial real estate and property management. 

Jackie's college education was interrupted by marriage and children in 1970, but she always believed education was important, so while working fulltime, married with two teenagers at home, Jackie took classes and graduated in 1991 from the last graduating class of Kearney State College before it became UNK.  Jackie and Mike divorced in 2012, then Jackie retired from Commercial Investment Services Stefka Agency in 2015.

A memorial book signing is available between 9:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. on Monday, January 11, 2021 at Carpenter Memorial Chapel at 1616 West B Street in North Platte.  A memorial service is scheduled at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, January 12, 2021 at the United Methodist Church at 1600 West E Street in North Platte.  Services will be held following all current COVID-19 health directives.  Jackie's obituary is available online at:

IN MEMORY:  We fondly remember 36 of our KHS Classmates who have died since 1967, including Cinda House Bertrand, Jerry Jelken, Jim Lane, and John Ransom, each of whom died in 2020, and Sally Zikmund Husen and Jackie Pahl Lashley who have died in 2021.   Our sincere condolences and prayers are with them, their family, and friends.  If you have any memories about these Classmates that you'd like to share, please post a comment by clicking their name listed on our "In Memory" page on the black vertical menu bar.  If you know of any other Classmates who have passed away, please click the "Contact Us" link on the black horizontal menu bar to send us an e-mail.

WHAT'S NEW WITH YOU?  During the coronavirus pandemic, it's important for all of us over 60 (and 70!) to do three things:  "Stay Home, Stay Healthy, and Stay In Touch" with our family, friends and neighbors while wearing a face mask, social distancing six feet apart, and frequently washing our hands with soap & water for at least 20 seconds.  From our homes, we can call a KHS classmate who we miss seeing or haven't talked to in a long time.  We can send them a quick text, just to say we're thinking of them.  And we can also log in to our www.khs1967.org website and click "What's New" on the black horizontal menu bar at the top of our Home page.  You can share how COVID-19 has changed your daily routine, what activities or hobbies you enjoy doing at home, how you are coping and helping others, or anything else that you think would help fellow classmates (or make us smile!)  You can even click a box below your message to add a photo or a video of yourself, your family, or a favorite place you've traveled to.  And if you've tested positive or are hospitalized with coronavirus symptoms, we can send you our prayers and best wishes for a full recovery.  Let's stay in touch!
