Our Early History

by Ralyne E. Westenhofer

Seems to me that the alumni of the first high school in Dearborn Heights District #4 have been all but forgotten. I was a member of the last graduating class of Haston Junior High School in 1959 (134 classmates). Prior to this time, all students for high school were bussed out of the area. After the 1959 graduation, Haston (which also had a kindergarten class for many years for those students across Telegraph Road) added a class each year until it became a full-fledged and an accredited High School. In essence, my graduating class (123 classmates) of 1963 were seniors for 5 years. Our rival was Riverside High School. Yes, it's true there were only three graduating classes from Haston High School (1963, 1964 and 1965), but we did exist and should be considered alumni. My brother graduated from the first graduating class of Crestwood High School in 1966.

For 19 years we lived in the same house but the address changed from Garden City to Dearborn Township to Dearborn 6 and then to Dearborn Heights which became incorporated in April 1963.

I have been the Executive Assistant to the Public Works Director for Orange County Government for 27 years in Orlando, Florida and was a 1965 graduate of the Detroit College of Business. My brother, Lee who attended Eastern Michigan University, was the first recipient of the John Philip Sousa Award from Crestwood High School and is a musician/entertainer living in Orange, Orange County, California.

HHS Class of 1963

Ralyne E. Westenhofer -

Karen Boucha Byroads - - I am interested in getting in touch with classmates from theclass of 1963. My family lived on Berwyn Ave. in Dearborn and we moved to Maryland in 1960. When I left Haston, Mr. Hogancamp was the principal, and he was a great person. Some of my classmates were: Bobby Wydick, Jody Clark, Buddy Clark, Diane Crytxer, Bernard (Pinky) Forfinski, Eddy Warner, Tom Ivonski (sp?), Jan Rueter, Sherry Liphold. My husband Don and I have been married for 39 years; we have two children and three grandchildren. We are retired and live on 7 acres in a small town called Leonardtown. We live close to the Potomac River and spend much of our time on the beach fishing, swimming, and enjoying wildlife.


HHS Class of 1964

Daryl Chapin - - After college at EMU and DIT, I applied for a chemist position at a company in Detroit called Udylite. It was bought several times by various conglomerates such as Occidental Petroleum, Ascaro, and now Cookson Electronics, where have been employed as a field chemical engineer for now, my gosh, 35 years. I have a wife of 35 years, 4 grandkids, and now live in Cincinnati, OH and have lived there for 25 years. I do have some Upper Peninsula, MI property lake frontage near Lake Superior in the Copper Country on an inland lake and enjoy hunting and fishing. I have been out of touch with Dearborn Heights for many years.



HHS Class of 1965

Patricia E. Beadle - Married to Lawrence Kopczyk in 1966...and still going strong...would like to have new information on any classmate who like myself has moved since our last reunion...we are now in Howell. If anyone from our class has already started making plans for our Reunion please consider my help. I still have all information from last number is 517-552-1182   

Bob Gauchey: I graduated with the Haston class of '65. I'm an engineer working in the automotive automation manufacturing field. I have two degrees from Lawrence Tech. Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Management. I've been in this field for 35 years. I've been in Program management for the last 6 years since I found I was unable to cope with the boredom of design engineering. Now the business aspect is driving me to look forward to retirement.

Pat Spittler nee Stewart I live in Oklahoma where I am a CPA. I have many fond memories of Haston. Especially playing field hockey.

Donna Bennetts - After graduating from the newly built, very small Crestwood High in 1966, having a handful of jobs, and graduating from college I found my notch in the field of Criminal Justice working for the city police and finally the Michigan State Police. I have traveled the world. My trips to Japan and Italy were wonderful. My husband and I have one daughter who is a high school teacher and also operates a successful home-based business called, "The Pampered Chef." She is married to a U.S. Marine Captain; they have two handsome sons. They are deployed all over the world. In our spare time we find ourselves planning for our retirement. I can't believe I'm 55 years old! My brother Daryl died in 2003 of Pancreatitus in his home in Caseville, MI. Both of my parents are deceased, both died of lung cancer from smoking. I am the last of the Bennetts. Because of this I want to live a long life. I try very hard to make every single day of my life count. I keep very busy. I don't smoke, drink or take drugs. I eat healthy and work out. I deeply love my husband. My life is good.

Denise Chambers-Kuptz-Copeland - I married Dave Kuptz class of 1970, moved to California, divorced and moved back to Michigan in 1997. I became a Workers' Compensation Examiner, supervision, management and then onto team leader. Upon moving back to Michigan, I adjusted claims for General Motors for the states of Connecticut, Mississippi, Alabama and Pennsylvania, as a litigation specialist. I remarried my current husband, Cliff, who is a quadriplegic. I stay home to take care of him and all of the paper trails this job incurs, doctors, lawyers and State Farm Insurance. I am back in school changing careers...go I have a lot of work time left, but just in case this economy never really works out, I need to be prepared. I live in Stanton Michigan and have two grown daughters with a total of six grand children. Having the chance to live in the country has been wonderful, though I do miss California very much and may very well go back to live out my life if the opportunity presents it self. I have survived breast cancer and just met my five year anniversary. My husband has been experiencing significant medical problems over the past two years, which has brought me much stress and concern. I'm hoping some old friends might find this site so we can chat and remember old times, which seems like such a long time ago.

Sharon Smigelski Williams - I also attended Fairview, which was kindergarten and first grade only, and Wallaceville, which went to 7th grade. Both of these school are no longer in existence.  Riverside went from 8th to 12th grade, and our class, the class of 1975, was the largest graduating class of some 300 seniors or so. Enrollment declined until the last graduating class 1985, which my sister, Theresa (Smigelski) Mergl belonged to (She now has 5 children ages 11 and under and is living in Maryland.)  Riverside then became a Middle School and Crestwood became the area High School.  I and my husband of over 20 years live in Westland and are both Horticultural Technicians, taking care of plants in interior plantscapes, such as offices, malls, hospitals, etc.  We are also musicians and have a studio in our home.  This comes in handy with our son who is a senior this year in the music program  at Western Michigan University.  He will be going to China in April with the WMU Orchestra to perform on the Great Wall.  I also have a custom sewing business - and here Mrs. Everts thought I'd never accomplish anything-ha ha. We also enjoy our '71 Dodge Charger.  Let's go cruise Hines!
