LIZ (WALKER) BERNAU: CLASS OF 1965

Liz (Walker) Bernau passed away Sunday, July 2, 2017  in Phoenix after battling tremendous pain for these past years.

Her sister Suzanne Walker writes, “We will keep you posted on any Memorial Services, though the children will have to make those decisions.  I have prayed for nearly a year that she would soon be free of pain.  Yes, there is sadness but also elation knowing she is now free to fly the heavens without pain.”

George Sherman added, “Marilyn [Walker] tells me that services for Liz will probably be held in Thousand Oaks, CA where Liz lived for many years and where most of her children live. I will forward to all of you any additional info as I learn it.”

Tiny desert community of Trona hopes to rise from the ashes

The San Bernardino Sun News posted a great article about Trona on October 24, 2015. I just had to link to it here for those Trona fans that don’t do Facebook.

“Anywhere else is not Trona,” Sandy Sprouse said. “It’s unique in every sense of the word.” The tiny unincorporated community is on Death Valley’s southeastern border, about 170 miles northwest of Los Angeles and an hour and a half north of the tiny High Desert community of Adelanto. Souvenirs sold at the Searles Valley Historical Society museum in Trona display a road sign —created to promote a local sign company — that reads “End of the World, 10 miles; Trona, 15 miles.” [ …. more ]
