Olivia De Jane, 

French teacher in Le Conte Jr high and HHS passed away January 12th, 2016 in Honolulu, Hawaii.

I had Mlle. DeJane first at LeConte Jr. High as my General Music teacher, then later at HHS as my French teacher and how well those of us in the Class of 1970 and 1969 remember the infamous "crush" she had on then Student Body President Shawn Bryan. And the many dramatic moments that nuanced our memories of being this classic woman's student -- from the foray into the Watts section of L.A. right after the terrible riots, to the special dinner at a French restaurant where we had to order in and speak in French...there were very few HHS teachers that really made a dent to me: Mlle. DeJane, Physiology teacher Patti Smythe, Dan Desmond and Journalism teacher Florence Miller. I think warmly about them all....Ariana Bruck Fulginiti (Class of 1970)

I regretfully announce the sudden and unexpected passing of my beloved brother, Darrow Bruck (Class of 1972) who was lost to us on August 27th several weeks following a car accident, though it is too soon to understand whether there was any direct causal effect from that accident leading to his passing. Student Body President during his senior year at HHS (1971-1972), Darrow was a much admired, well-liked and trusted friend and one of the rare individuals who held on to friends for life. His absence in our family's life -- especially among his ardent fans counting two nieces and one nephew -- will be profoundly difficult to bear for quite some time. You may comment or post your condolences on this site or I can direct you, for that purpose, to the special website at legacy.com to glance at the eulogy and the obituary (which I created within the Memory Book section and somewhere now near the bottom 3-5 entries since so many people have already weighed in. I have sponsored that site for one year and refer interested parties to: www.memorialwebsites.legacy.com/DHB-Memorial-Tributes/Homepage. Thanks for sharing your special memories of Darrow at that site or here on this site, either within the Obits section or in the Blogs (HHS Community Page).

Ariana Bruck Fulginiti (Class of 1970)
