Sympathy notices published here previously (generally more than a year ago) may be found in the sympathy notice archives section.


*Sympathy notices are posted on this page for approximately one year after a death. They are generally listed in the order the information is received, the most recent first. Older notices are moved to the sympathy notice archives section. Other than perhaps noticing a published obituary in Memphis, 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 or noticing a published obituary. 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, please contact us with that information.
