This 2008 loss of a KHS Classmate, Christine Pavlik '68, came to our attention as a result of the recent loss of her brother, also a KHS Classmate, Steven Pavlik '70 who passed away on May 1, 2022.  Someone mentioned that they had known Christine, who had passed away, and this prompted me to ask if there was an obituary out there that we could use to include Christine.  This was provided to us and we have hopefully, done the honor due to her as our KHS Classmate.

Personally, I do remember Christine from school days and while she does not show up in the KHS 1968 Annual, in the graduating class, not knowing the circumstances, I felt compelled to include her.  I am so sorry for this family that now has lost both of these members.  May Christine rest in peace and comfort always.
