I've just learned of the passing of Donna Wykle Woelfle '60.  She was born in East Peoria, IL on March 10, 1941 and died in East Peoria, IL on August 4, 2018.  I wonder how she ended up graduating from Crawford?  Click HERE to read an obituary and sign the Memory Book.  Donna's husband Irv would like to hear from Emily Adams Byerley, who attended their wedding on February 20, 1960.
