Bunny Cross Nevin writes, “In January I eloped to Hawaii with the love of my life, Jack! My personal life is finally happy and complete.” The newlyweds play golf and travel a lot; they just returned from a trip to China and Tibet. They live in Sun City, 20 minutes north of Austin, TX,
and between them they have a huge family.
In New Orleans Patricia O’Rourke Murrell says, “Progress is slow, but the rebirth is underway.”
Pat sends special thanks to the numerous classmates who communicated their concern for her family and the citizens of the New Orleans.
Beverly Weinstein Litman celebrated her husband’s 70th birthday while cruising the Mediterranean. He is still working and has no plans to retire—which, says Bev, “keeps us both sane and smiling.” Their grandchildren are a constant source of wonder and exhaustion. Bev’s daughter and her family live nearby. Her son is in the Big Apple, and his wife plays a lead role in the popular Broadway show Avenue Q.
Sandra Stees Sudofsy writes, “Coming to Philadelphia? Would love to have you visit!”
Bob and Onnie Dye Morgan have a new e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Onnie had
heart surgery this past spring, and it sounds as if she has a wonderful support system in her siblings, children, and grandchildren. Onnie loves horseback riding but will be a bit more restricted, as the doctor says the pacemaker will not enjoy jolts from cantering or trotting.
Onnie also notes that it was “great to hear from President Glotzbach about the bequest from Arthur Zankel!” (In case you missed it, Zankel, the father of two Skidmore graduates, left the college
over $40 million.)
From Lake Forest, CA, Barbara Hood Dusing writes that she and husband David (Middlebury ’58) are teaching children to sail but leaving themselves some time for cruising the southern coast.
Nancy Rae Scully says she’d be happy to help me organize a NYC mini-reunion for mid- to
late fall. Anyone else interested?
As for me, I’m trying to get used to no longer being the “numero uno” female in my son’s life. However, I am delighted to have a wonderful daughter-in-law as of August.
