Class of 1961 Remembrance 

Gayle Brinko Karikas passed away in July, 1997. She resided in Levittown with her husband, Dave, and their four children. She also left two sisters. Janet Columbia and Lois Christensen were among her close high school friends, and they happily spent a lot of time together at each other's homes and at Jones Beach when not in school. She is sadly missed, and will always be remembered for that wonderful personality, wit and that gorgeous red hair!

We will always hold Gayle close to our hearts that are filled with very special memories of our high school years.
