ALTON — Alton Little Theater is set to cap off its monumental 90th season in spectacular fashion with the classic musical, "Singin' in the Rain," running from May 10 through May 19, with potential additional dates due to high demand.

Among its founders in 1933 was our drama/English teacher Miss Colonius. Wouldn't she  be happy that it is still going strong....

Son of our classmate Carol Meszaros Klaus:

Robert R. Klaus, Jr.
Saint Peters, MO - Robert R. Klaus, Jr., age 49, of Saint Peters, Missouri passed away on Thursday, May 2, 2024 after a courageous battle with cancer. He was born in Alton, Illinois on January 13, 1975 to Robert and Carol Klaus (nee Meszaros).
Rob was a man of many interests. A mechanical engineer by trade, he followed in his father's footsteps, working 15 years at O'Brien/Ametek Corporation upon getting an education at Louis and Clark College, even being inducted to the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society in 2006.
He preferred the outdoors and that of an Ozark stream to the hustle and bustle of city living. Summers saw him fishing a trout stream or hiking a nature trail, and by late fall, you could spot him in the duck blinds with his hunting buddies. He worked with his local Ducks Unlimited chapter out of O'Fallon/St. Paul on local wetland conservation. In his early days of working at a local habitat rehabilitation center, he would care for all sorts of wildlife which began a lifelong passion for animal rescue. And he, of course, loved dogs, especially his "fur babies", Bella and Ellie.
His true calling, though, would be history. Rob was an amateur archeologist who loved digging into history. Literally. He had a great love for prehistoric Native American artifacts and ancient cultural centers. He was well versed in geology and taught flint knapping of lithic tools and restoration. His love of history also led to numerous adventures to the Riviera Maya region of Mexico to see the ruins and temples and take in the culture, even proposing to his fiancée on the top of a Mayan pyramid. Rob was also a Civil War history buff who could be found mapping out the battle sites for his next road trip.
Rob pursued many side hobbies as well, including photography, culinary arts, auto restoration, making a mean margarita, grilling, gardening, hockey, baseball, and even paranormal research with his para-family, to which he devoted a deep curiosity of the past, the present, and to those in the ever after.
Rob's wit and humor, mixed with sarcasm and natural charisma, made him an immediate friend to so many. He eventually found the love of his life, Heather, in 2016 and they were engaged June, 2017. He was loyal and always willing to be there for others and, so in turn, it was those friends who helped him get through the last, and most difficult, chapter of his life. In August 2023, he was diagnosed with aggressive forms of liver and lung cancer, to which he fought with dignity. Despite his prognosis, he managed to keep his sense of humor till the end. In his own words, he's eternally grateful to have known each of you and your friendship was never taken for granted. His legacy will live on in all those lives he touched.
Rob is survived by his beloved fiancée, Heather Wehrmann; treasured stepdaughters, Lilianne and Livia Sullivan; loving parents, Robert R. Klaus, Sr., and Carol Klaus; and sisters, Deborah (Jerry) Meredith and Patricia Klaus. He is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, and many friends that will miss him dearly. He was preceded in death by his brothers, Jerry (wife Patti survives) Klaus and James Klaus.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a gift to the Lewis and Clark Community College Foundation for the Robert Ronald Klaus Jr. Memorial Scholarship. In doing so, please make checks payable to Lewis and Clark Community College Foundation and write Klaus Scholarship in the memo line. Mail your gift to 5800 Godfrey Rd., Godfrey, IL 62035. Further information regarding the specifics of this scholarship can be provided upon request.
Visitation: Thursday, May 16, 2024 from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm at Newcomer Cremations, Funerals & Receptions, 837 Mid Rivers Mall Dr, St Peters MO 63376. Visitation Prior to Mass: Friday, May 17, 2024 from 10:00 am to 11 am St. Peters Catholic Church, 221 1st Capitol Drive, St. Charles MO 63301. Mass: Friday, May 17, 2024 at 11 am at St. Peters Catholic Church, 221 1st Capitol Drive, St. Charles MO 63301. Interment: Ste. Philippine Cemetery 4057 Towers Road, St. Charles MO 63304.

Mother's Day poem from Moine McGibany's FB page:

Close your eyes

and think back in time

She quieted our cries

and sang us bedtime rhymes

She wiped away our tears

and calmed our greatest fears

She worked like a slave

and always gave and gave and gave

She always made things right

and filled a room with light

She taught us about hope

and taught us how to cope

She taught to always be a dreamer

and now we can only dream of her

We feel her presence everyday

and know she’s never far away.

Happy Mother’s Day, Moine
