Friends and Schoolmates,
There is still more sad belated news today. Lynda George Rowe, Hampton High School Class of 1965, wife of George Rowe ('64) of VA, passed away in Richmond on Sunday, March 12, 2017 at the age of 70.
She was the sister of Ed George (HHS - '6_) and Cathy George McQuade (HHS - '__), and the sister-in-law of Anne Rowe ('68) of VA.
From Sandi Bateman Chestnut ('65) of
VA - 05/22/17, 7:25 PM: About 6-8 weeks ago, I saw where
George Rowe, Class of '64, lost his wife, Lynda. I don't
know if you saw it or now, as I'm behind reading the
sister, Anne, was in the Class of '68.
Oh, no, I'm sorry to hear this,
Sandi, and I didn't catch it at all. Thank you so much for telling me.
Aside from being in band with George,
I was a member of Trinity Methodist
Church as was the Rowe family. My thoughts and prayers are with
the Daily Press - 03/15/17:
I meant to write you before now
about another death, but Dale (Chestnut - Nakina HS, NC - '54)
got sick before I could do so.

Servant of God, Well Done!
Charles Wesley (28 Dec 1707 - 29 Mar 1788)
Music by George J. Elvey (27 Mar 1816 - 09 Dec 1893)
(The Methodist Hymnal, 1966, #288)
Wesley wrote this hymn in 1770 on
the occasion of the death of clergyman George White.
Elvey's tune, "Diademata", has been set to several other hymns, notably "Crown Him with Many Thorns" and "Soldiers of Christ, Arise".
Servant of God, well done!
Thy glorious warfare’s past;
The battle’s fought, the race is won,
And thou art crowned at last.
With saints enthroned on high,
Thou dost thy Lord proclaim,
And still to God salvation cry,
Salvation to the Lamb!
O happy, happy soul!
In ecstasies of praise,
Long as eternal ages roll,
Thou seest Thy Savior’s face.
Redeemed from earth and pain,
Ah! when shall we ascend,
And all in Jesus’ presence reign
With our translated friend?
