The first yearbook published by Pleasant Hill High School, 1926 edition, did not have any photographs. The reason the annual was printed was because the school got a mimeo- graph machine, so no pictures except cartoons were in the book. No senior pictures were printed until the 1933 book. I found one from a group picture, however, that is about the right age. At this point, the members of the class of 1927 would be in their mid 90's now. There were fourteen graduates. Annette Maltzan died in 2004
Annette (Maltzan) Bauguess
A celebration of life was held in the spring of 2004 for Annette E. Maltzan Baugess of Dexter, who died January 28, 2004 of age-related causes. She was 94
Baugess was born April 25, 1909, to Richard and Jennie Blighton Maltzan, at the family home on a hop farm on Day Island, where Autzen Stadium now sits. She married Roy Baugess in June of 1937. He died in March of 1987.
When she was 2, her family built a home on College Crest, near the Wayne Morse Ranch in Eugene. Three years later, they relocated to Dexter. Bauguess attended elementary school in Eugene and Trent, graduated from Pleasant Hill High School in 1927 and the Oregon Normal School in 1929.
She began her teaching career at the Jeans School near Veneta. In the 1930s, she taught at the two-room Goshen Grade School, followed by Lowell Grade School in the 1940s. She retired from teaching in 1973.
She was a writer of published articles about education and local history. She was a member of the Lane County historical Society. She enjoyed raising prize-winning roses, reading, identifying birds, watching Trail Blazer and Duck basketball and receiving visits from former students. She will be remembered for her great sense of humor and love for her dog and cat.
Survivors include a son, John, of Dexter, who graduated from PHHS in 1961.
The memorial service in the spring was held at Elijah Bristow State Park, which borders the farm where she spent her childhood. Major Family Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements. Memorial contributions were made to the Greenhill Humane Society.
