Jeanie Moore Prichard
Villisca High School (Villisca, Iowa) Class of 1944
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
There's more sad, although expected, news this late night. Jeanie Moore Prichard, mother of Reuben Prichard and mother-in-law of our own dear Sepi Dinwiddie Prichard ('58) of NC, passed away at 10:50 PM on Wednesday, September 19, 2007 in McLean, VA at the age of 81.
From Sepi Dinwiddie Prichard ('58) of NC - 09/22/07 - "We made it just in time":
Mother good bye," and his lips gently touched her forehead and again he
quietly told her he loved her. I took my turn for one last kiss and then Jen
passed away. She left like the lady she was, silently and holding the hand of
Jesus and wrapped in the Glory of God's Grace. Thank you, Jesus.... It was
p.m. Not a minute too soon or a second too late, but just in God's time.
Thank you again for your prayers....they have been answered !
Sepi and Reuben Prichard
WOW. That is really quite awesome - in the strictest sense of the word. Thank you for sharing that with us, Sepi.

LIFE HISTORY OF JEANIE MOORE PRICHARD
Jeanie Moore was born in Villisca, Iowa on May 24, 1926, to Collis and Gladys Moore. Collis served as Postmaster for the town of Villisca and ran a family farm. When Jeanie was three years old, her birth mother passed away and Collis married Ruby Wissler, who raised Jeanie and her sisters. Jeanie was active in the drama club at high school. Upon graduation, she attended college in Omaha and worked for the Omaha District Attorney.
Our deepest sympathies are extended once more to Reuben and Sepi and their entire family.

Sepi and Reuben Prichard
Thank you, Sepi. I'm glad y'all like it.
From Neil Armstrong (Blume HS, OR - '47) of OH to Captain Reuben Parker Prichard, USN (Ret) (USNA - Class of 1948A) - 10/02/07 - "RE: Jeanie Moore Prichard":
Sincere thanks for notifying me of the loss of your 6 decade partner in life.
Clearly a great lady who will be well remembered.
I send my condolences and my very best wishes.
From Captain David A. Spriggs, USNR (Ret.) ('64; USNA - Class of 1969) of VA - 10/03/07:
Reuben Parker Prichard, USN (Ret) is a member of the
Class of 1948A, so designated because its members graduated on 6 June
1947. The remaining members, the Class of 1948B, graduated on 4 June 1948.
Given that this class entered prior to the conclusion of World War II, I
suspect that it was affected by the accelerated graduations required as a
result of the war. I explain all this, because I found it odd that a
marriage in the Chapel would take place in November 1947, especially for a
member of the Class of 1948. I knew that Classes were split; I just couldn't
remember if 1948 was one of them.
Unfortunately, I do not have a 1948 Lucky Bag, but I do have a 1947. That one has his photo as a Midshipman Second Class (Junior, to you landlubbers).
Thank you, Captain. Nobody does it better.
Y'all take good care of each other! TYPHOONS FOREVER! We'll Always Have Buckroe!
Love to all, Carol

Softly and Tenderly
- Will L.
1. Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling,
Calling for you and for me;
See, on the portals He’s waiting and watching,
Watching for you and for me.
Come home, come home,
You who are weary, come home;
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling,
Calling, O sinner, come home!
2. Why should we tarry when Jesus is pleading,
Pleading for you and for me?
Why should we linger and heed not His mercies,
Mercies for you and for me?
3. Time is now fleeting, the moments are passing,
Passing from you and from me;
Shadows are gathering, deathbeds are coming,
Coming for you and for me.
4. Oh, for the wonderful love He has promised,
Promised for you and for me!
Though we have sinned, He has mercy and pardon,
Pardon for you and for me.
