V Ju. IN MEMORY OF the Charles Retz family killed in an accident August 1965 God hath not promised skies always blue, flower strewn pathways all our lives through; God hath not promised sun without rain, joy without sorrow, peace without pain. But God hath promised strength for the day, rest for the labor, light for the way; Grace for the trials, help from above, unfailing sympathy, undying love. Mrs. Merlyn Jean Retz, a graduate of Muncie Central High School, was the first girl to be awarded the school ' s Science and Mathematics Achievement Award. She attended Ball State Teachers College from which she was graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics. Mrs. Retz first came to DeSoto in 1963- 64 where she taught Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry and seventh grade Arithmetic. She later earned her Mas- ter ' s degree at Ball State, Mr. Retz was also a graduate of Ball State Teachers College and earned his Master ' s degree at Washing- ton University in St. Louis, Missouri. .After teaching one year at Muncie Central, Mr. Retz taught mathematics at Muncie Southside for three years. Michael Wayne Retz, only son of Mr. and Mrs. Retz, was a first grade student at the DeSoto Elementary School during the 1964-65 school year. Michael, with his quiet manner, but bright and smiling face, will also be missed here at DeSoto. Mr. and Mrs. Retz will be missed not only by their loved ones, but by the students they taught, by the teach- ing profession to which they were devoted and by the countless friends they made along the way. We, the Seniors of 1966, wish to express our deepest condolences to the loved ones of the Charles W. Retz family. Yea, though 1 walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for Thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff They comfort me. Psalms 23:4
