Who, What, When
| | | | | | | |
In January Judy Fletcher Baker and husband Bruce embarked on a trip to India. While Bruce went on to Hong Kong, Judy returned to New Mexico via Paris. In France she became quite ill, but eager to return home, she flew on and ended up in intensive care with pneumonia and a pulmonary embolism the following day.
Florence Andresen has been dealing with Crohn’s Disease and kidney trouble. We wish her and Judy a speedy recovery.
Sue Kopf Mueller and husband Chuck took a group of friends on a tour through the French countryside in May. They summered in Long Island.
Sally Huberlie Hale and Jud traveled from Vancouver to Seward, AK, in June and enjoyed the beautiful scenery of the Northwest. In July all the family joined them on New Hampshire’s Lake Winnepesauke to celebrate Sally’s birthday. The Hales climbed Mt. Major the next day.
Dottie Dodd O’Meara is still selling real estate in the Simsbury, CT area. She and Max just purchased a home in East Orleans, on Cape Cod, which they are getting in order for summers with their family. They recently welcomed their sixth grandchild, a boy (their daughter’s first). Dottie would love to hear from classmates in the area.
Nancy Wyman Horner’s youngest grandchild arrived shortly after our last reunion; Nancy is enjoying her immensely.
Jan McKay Carlson wrote me a nice note on stationery made by her granddaughter.
Jean Bodell Meybohm decided her house needed a “face lift” and had painters there for two weeks, during which “not a surface, including floors, was left untouched.” The results of her indoor endeavor prompted Jean to landscape her front yard with fieldstone walls, walkways, and new lighting. While attacking her back yard, she unfortunately ran into some poison sumac.
Pat Naigles Lyons and husband Herb returned to Bellingham, WA, after their winter in Florida. Herb put in a vegetable garden for their son; both Pat and Herb then helped him with some inside work. The Lyonses headed to their Adirondack camp for the summer.
Our condolences to Dotty Wakeman Mattoon, who has sad news: while staying in Nantucket last summer, husband Bruce suffered a cerebral hemorrhage and was airlifted to Boston Medical. After six weeks he was transported to a Florida nursing home. He died in February.
Marie Bonady Napier enjoyed a three-week trip to Ireland, Scotland, and England with husband Paul and their oldest son, Michael. Paul, who attended his 50th Cornell reunion this year, is still on the board of directors for the Screen Actors Guild and AFTRA.
Jo Leach Lewis’s term on the alumni board of directors ended at Commencement this year. After the ceremonies, she met Barbara Mansfield Saul and went to dinner at the new Saratoga National Golf Course. With more free time now, Jo enjoys participating in three book clubs and planning for a trip to China and Bangkok with Dotty Mattoon.
Bob and I went to England and Ireland in June on the Sea Cloud II sailing ship. It was beautiful. We got to spend a day in London with Diane Smejkal Wallace and husband Jim before heading off down the Thames. The Wallaces had been to Venice this spring with daughter Susan and spent a week in southern France. Toby Rowe Hohenstein and husband George, meanwhile, began their summer odyssey on their barge in France.
