Ghost Classes of BYH 411

When Brigham Young High School was closed in 1968, that action affected many students from K ~ 11th Grade who had planned to attend and graduate from BY High. They were all forced to leave and complete their secondary educations elsewhere. At the request of many who were students in those years, the classes of 1969 through 1980 have been added to this directory as honorary alumni of BY High School. Sometimes called the "Ghost Classes of BY High", all of them -- K through 11 -- were included in the historic final BYH Wildcat Yearbook published in 1968, along with the final graduating class of 1967-1968. Those particularly marked as "Honorary" left a year or more before the 1967-1968 school year.

Class of 1974. Rebecca Brown. Members of this class were in the BY elementary school's sixth grade in 1968. ~ ~ ~ ~ OBITUARY: Our beautiful Emma Rebecca Brown Thomas, 47, beloved wife, mother, daughter, and sister passed away unexpectedly at home Thursday, March 4, in Provo, Utah. Becky was a wonderful friend and confidant to her family and many, many friends. She loved readily and was beloved by all those who knew her. With her passing, many have lost their best friend. Becky was born April 23, 1956 in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois, the eldest child of Thomas and Sheila Brown. She was educated in Provo, as well as in Belgium while her father served as a mission president, and at Brigham Young University where she earned a B.A. in French and a J.D. at BYU Law School. She was appointed as the Chair of the Work Force Labor Board by the Governor of the State of Utah. She met David Boyd Thomas while they were both attending Brigham Young University. They were married in the Provo Utah Temple on April 22, 1977. What started as a great love story grew into an incredible partnership. They truly appreciated each other and were devoted to one another. The greatest moments of joy in their marriage came with the addition of each of their three daughters. To capture Becky's life in a few words is impossible. She opened her heart and her home to all ages. She made her children's friends feel wonderful and welcome. She offered her extended family moments of fun, thoughtfulness, and great food. And to each friend, she became that special person who can lift and comfort. Becky was tireless in her devotion to her girls, interested in all aspects of their lives, acting as both a mother and best friend. She was a superb cook, and talented gardener, and a voracious reader. She was always ready to help feed the mind and the body. Becky was a lifelong member of the LDS Church. She served as president of the Young Women, Primary, and Relief Society organizations, gospel doctrine teacher, and bishop's wife. Becky is survived by her loving husband, David, her precious daughters Emma, Alexandra, and Hannah; her parents Thomas H. and Sheila Brown; her brothers and sisters John (Jolie) Brown, Alison (Eben Hewitt) Brown, Elizabeth Brown, Thomas (Penny) Brown, and Michael (Sheri) Brown. She was a favorite aunt to many nieces and nephews and a beloved sister-in-law to David's brothers and sisters. She was preceded in death by an infant son, John Wilding Thomas. Funeral services were held Wednesday, March 10, 2004 at the Oak Hills Stake Center, Provo. Interment, East Lawn Memorial Hills. [Deseret News, Monday, March 8, 2004.]
