Jeanne Shipp Waldinger
Deborah Davis Cromwell’s son Matt graduated from Princeton with a degree in environmental policy, attended a summer program at Tuck School of Business, and started work as a paralegal for a Washington, DC, environmental law firm. Daughter Jen works for a transportation consulting firm in Vermont (she recently investigated the feasibility of a light-rail system in Chicago) and training for the Canadian 100-mile cross-country ski marathon (her second). Deborah’s husband, Larry, enjoys practicing neuroradiology at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, and she volunteers for three Hanover schools. She spent a week on Jost Van Dyke, BVI, with her parents and godmother and a long weekend with friends at the Aspen Music Festival; a member of the Handel Society Chorus, she performed the Brahms Requiem with them. She also took a learn-to-row class and now knows the joy of being on the Connecticut River in an eight-person shell.
In May Penelope Ann Thoms was ordained a priest in Clifton, VA. She earned her MDiv and MA in spiritual direction from the Graduate Theological Union at Berkeley, CA. She also holds a certificate in Celtic studies from the Iliff School of Theology in Denver, CO, and in bioethics from the University of Washington Medical School in Seattle. A member of the College of Chaplains, she has served as resident chaplain at two hospitals in Colorado and three in California, and as campus chaplain at Colorado State University. She won the Golden Pen Award for Poetry in 2002, the Boyle International Poetry Competition in 2003, and the Scottish International Poetry Competition this year. Penny, who lives in County Kerry, Ireland, is married to the Rev. Stephen Mead Johnson, a Unitarian minister.
Since Marsha Laubenstein Knight’s husband, Dan, lost a lengthy battle with cancer in 2002, Marsha has been single-parenting daughter Gwen, 15, who is spending her sophomore year as an exchange student in Germany. In Pennsylvania Marsha is completing a master’s in English at Rosemont College. “In a vain attempt to keep pounds at bay,” she runs with a pack of French basset hounds.
Bonnie Blades Andre rides her third-generation homebred event horse in competition and skis six days a week in the winter—including stints on ski patrol and as an instructor. She earned senior ski patrol certification last year.
