Two parter:
1. As the administrator, I have entered data about several deceased classmates. However, when I go to In Memory in the general button section, it doesn't show any info, just provides space for a posting. That's where I'm supposed to put the data, not in the profile?

2. All of our 11 deceased classmates are seen in In Memory and in the Manage Classemates section of Admin. All but ONE of them is listed in the Classmates Profiles. How can I correct that? Name is Charlene Arbacheuskas Whitmar.

1) Yes. When a Classmate dies, you need to create a new "In Memory" entry for them in this space.

2) Did you ever have this person set not to show on your Class List? I do see you had them set to show on the list, but the settings in the system were saying "don't show." Regardless, I turned that person back on so they're not on your Class List again.

Thanks for correcting item 2 for me.
Back to item 1. I did a cut and paste from profile to In Memory, no problem. However, it showed up as an entry from me. For the initial entry for each deceased, I would like to have a general entry, e.g. Bement High School. Tara Thompson has done a very nice job with this. Initially I will have something simpler, but would like it not to show my name as the author. thanks!

I think I know what you are wanting:

Go to your edit pages, then to the edit button In Memory page. You can click it, and it will take you to a page where you will be able to edit each In Memory for each person. Click edit, there you will find a box to put in the "announcement" per se. Click save, and it's done.
