KENNEWICK, Wash. (AP) — Cheri Schumann would like Kennewick High School's class of 1971 to know she is very much alive.
A story in Saturday's Tri-City Herald about Kennewick High's reunion focused on seven classmates who were slain out of 80 who had died. Schumann — now Cheri Taylor — was included.
But Taylor lives in Mill Creek, north of Seattle, with her husband and four children. She says she's happy, healthy and not ready to be buried.
Reunion co-chairwoman Debra Blum told the newspaper (http://bit.ly/qwpMcG ) the report of Taylor's premature demise came by email, apparently from another classmate. Blum says she used other sources to verify it.
Blum says another classmate listed in Saturday's story — Leo Marcel — also wasn't murdered. He died in 2004 after a lengthy illness.
