A few miscellaneous tidbits:

Ilene’s entry at FindAGrave.com, Jim’s entry is here.  Their parents’ info is also linked to there.

Jim was 1 year and 2 days older than Ilene.  Although both lived in Huron, they met in high school at a high school basketball game in Mitchell.

Jim’s dad, Orville, was principal of Huron High School for a number of years.  Reports in old yearbooks say that he was well-liked by the students.
