Barbara Gorton O'Bier (1943?-2014) Warren Area High School Class of 1961

1961 Dragon yearbook

"Barbara" spent 32 years in the top 10 -- from 1927 until 1958.  She enjoyed a run of 8 years (1937-1944) at #2, always playing second fiddle to MaryLife has been a bit of a bouncy experience for her of late.

This song was finishing up an 8-week run in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 when the class of '61 graduated.  (And Retiring Guy had just finished up a year in Mrs. Johnson's 5th grade class at Jefferson Street School.)

Other class of 1961 members:
Charles Grinnen III.  (7/15/2014)
Ronald Hultman.  (6/24/2014)
Patricia Martin.  (2/17/2014)
