Memorial Service planned for Bernie Walko

A memorial service has been scheduled for Bernie Walko and his wife at the end of the month. Both passed away within the past year. Their daughter, Anne, was a member of the graduating class of 1969. Mr Walko was as much a part of our high school lives as any student or teacher. The date of the service is Saturday, July 23, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. in the chapel at Saint Anthony’s Cemetery on Hoyt Street in Larksville. If any local alumni can attend, it would be much appreciated by the Walko family. Thank you.

Want to set up a class website?

I recently received an email from Zac Davis of If anyone is interested in setting up an individual class website, this might be a good option. Also, if you would like anything (reunion notices, class news, human interest stories, etc.) posted on or our Facebook page, email me.

Those of you who aren’t fans of Bishop O’Reilly High School on Facebook might have missed a fascinating post. Last fall, a recording of the 1988 commencement exercises were posted on Youtube. If you haven’t seen it, do check it out. It will be a great trip down memory lane for many graduates, I’m sure.
