Virtual Cemetery Initiative

 

When we learn of the passing of a classmate, we are often shocked. It is a painful part of the bereavement and grieving process. Sayville alumni have relocated all over the country and world. Some who have passed on are interred in local Sayville area cemeteries. Many are interred elsewhere, Cremation and donation to medical science have further reduced the number of local interments.

Our memorial pages (which we call virtual cemeteries) serve to provide a central location to visit, share remembrances, memories, photographs, comfort one another and pay tribute to our deceased classmate in the years to come.

Our memorial pages do not exist for morbid curiosity; rather their purpose serves to bring to mind fond memories of our departed classmates; who are always loved, never forgotten and forever missed.

 

Our new virtual cemetery pages list known deceased class members with links to the individuals own memorial page. Where possible, we try to include a senior picture, photo of the gravestone and obituary. We also try to link to other family members memorial pages.  This is an on-going project and we are seeking any available demographics on our deceased alumni.

This does involve time and research as the job is never done. Interested in joining the research team? Perhaps some of you would be interested in;

“adopting” the virtual cemetery for your year of graduation?

Performing some research i.e.. ancestry.com, newspapers.com, etc.?

Do you know of a deceased classmate not currently listed here?

Can you provide any additional information for those already listed here? Where known, the information we seek includes;

  1. full name (including maiden name)

  2. date and place of birth

  3. obituary

  4. photographs

  5. year of graduation

  6. names of parents/siblings

  7. gravestone pictures

  8. does alumnus already have a memorial page at findagrave.com?

  9. any other information that might aid research

Hal G. Brown, SHS Class of 1972, is managing this project, creating memorial pages and virtual cemeteries by class year. Anyone interested in participating in this project, please contact Hal at:.
