Susan Hardie Alexander is still busy with painting and sculpture in Jamaica. Granddaughter Rebecca Kahn ’99, daughter of Wendy Alexander Kahn ’75, makes the third generation of “Skiddies.”
Janet Ainsworth MacDonald enjoys taking Bruce, her papillon, to agility training—something she says “the dog is much better at” than she.
Pat O’Meara Jevons was in Texas, traveling to San Antonio, Dallas, and Waco, where she met Marjorie-Ann Matheson Arrien for lunch.
Pat Grummon Clegg enjoyed a trip to London in May and spent a day with Dorothy McKevitt Leason at the Courtauld Gallery. This summer Pat and husband George went to various music festivals, from Amelia Island, FL, to Tanglewood in Massachusetts.
Camille Christian Malamud and husband Bill enjoyed a family reunion in July with six children and eight grandchildren. In August the couple went to the Edinburgh Festival. Married for 50 years, the Malamuds live in a retirement community on a college campus in Newton, MA, where “the learning never stops.” Bill, who still works at Boston University Medical School, has “cut down to a ten-hour day, which is his idea of retirement.”
Janet Foster Lester’s husband, John, reports that she is suffering from advanced Alzheimer’s Disease and lives at the Lutheran Home in Arlington Heights, IL.
Joan Spencer Emerson lives at Shannondale, a retirement community near King of Prussia, PA. She finds the place “lovely” and invites classmates who live nearby to visit, especially if they like horses.
Marion Mahony Manning ’37 and I enjoyed meeting Skidmore President Phil Glotzbach at a Philadelphia Skidmore club event in Villanova last spring. Mike Sposili, director of alumni affairs and college events, was our chauffeur.
After more than three decades of living in a large home in Westford, MA, Elsie Malm Gordon and husband moved to a condo in Hudson, MA. Dolly is delighted with the walkout basement, as it holds all the “stuff” they couldn’t get into the rooms upstairs.
This year’s travels took Anthea Merrihue Turner and husband Charles to London, Brussels, California, and Boston on a marvelous museum art trip. Charles is becoming an enthusiastic art lover, but insists on equal time in the wine cellars. The couple then “kicked back” at Lake George for the summer.
Natalie Hazelton Mata enjoys having son John and his family nearby in Brooklyn, NY. Natalie and granddaughter Olivia take in Broadway shows every few weeks. Daughter Christina and family live in Amherst, MA. In his second NYC marathon, Christina’s husband came in with the first third of participants. Senior aerobics and writing classes helped Natalie cope with last winter’s ice and snow. A bone-density scan she had in January “proves the value of exercise,” she reports.
Barbara Freedman Wolfson attended the March for Women’s Lives in Washington, DC, in April. She calls on everyone to “vote in November and to banish stereotypical thinking.” She cites the example of her 103-year-old mother, who still lives in her own Manhattan apartment, has a bright, keen mind, and takes daily walks—albeit with an aide-companion now and a cane.
Dolores Lasco Wundt’s son Bruce died in July after an automobile accident. He had his PhD in economics and was planning to return to college teaching after working in the family business for a number of years. The class sends sympathy to Dee and her family.
Condolences also to Janet Ainsworth MacDonald, whose husband, Si, died suddenly in May. He had been recovering from a stroke he suffered last year. The MacDonalds were married for 54 years.
