I am saddened that one of North’s biggest supporters and cheerleaders has passed on to the next level of life’s cycle. I can still see and hear her cheering in the stands on game day. I also remember her at our class reunion. She was still Izora. When it was time for our athletes to take our picture who else but Izora got into the picture also. Once a copy of that picture came and as I look at it now I had no idea that two of our classmates (Izora and Brian) would not be with us today. The old saying “ Today is a blessing as tomorrow is not promised) is sad but true. I will miss my friend but will never forget her. Let the “War Cry” drums beat loud as Izora and Brian travels into eternal sleep. My prayers are with the family. RIP my friend. Jimmy Jemmerson.

Izora, you towered above in the end, and it was evidenced at our 45th High School Reunion for me.   At the end of our "Prayer Breakfast", you had us all stand and hold hands during which you said a prayer.  I knew then of your strength.   If I had been told at age 17 that this would have occurred, I would have expressed doubt.   But, you did that and we all did exactly what you asked.   It was one of those moments for me that defined your place and strength in our class structure.  Watching how our classmates came to revere you was quite a wonder.  You and your family must be very proud.  I must say that I feel like you are among the people in my life whose influence became more valued as our age progressed.  Bless you and the peace that you must be experiencing now.

I am so sad to hear that we lost Izora.  She is with Jesus now.  What a wonderful person she was.  I always loved talking to her at our reunions and hearing her laughter.

Rest in peace,

Sandy was so much fun. I loved having her as part of our class. She will be missed, but I know she's enjoying her heavenly home.                                                                                                                                                    Revelyn Satterlee Alpaugh

I will really miss our dear classmate at reunions and especially at our prayer breakfasts when she shared her strong faith.  May God give her family and friends the Peace and Comfort only HE can give at this very difficult time.  I know she is rejoicing with Jesus in Heaven!!!

In our class' era of 'one person can make a difference', that one person was Izora.  Jim Jemmerson's description sums up her personality, and her school spirit was unmatched.  In today's world, Izora would probably be the icon of our class, at least, she was to me.  She was definitely a role model for gumption,  strength and intestinal fortitude.
