*Sympathy notices are posted on our main sympathy notices page for approximately one year after a death. Thereafter, the notices are moved to this archive page. Sympathy notices are generally listed in the order the information is received, the most recent first. The East High Alumni Page has no special means of learning of deaths in families of alumni/faculty/staff other than information sent to us by alumni. We try to confirm such information based on published obituaries. We are sure that not all losses come to our attention and we regret that this page is not comprehensive. If you have information about a death in the family of an alumnus/facutly or staff member, you may contact us with that information.
