Betty Dornheim had a wonderful time at Reunion. She shared an article about Laura Gilbert, a Manhattan-based artist whose artistic commentary on the current financial debacle was featured in the New York Times. Laura had stood on Wall Street giving away signed and numbered originals of “The Zero Dollar,” her slightly downsized rendering of a one
dollar bill, with zeros replacing the number one. Betty made copies for the entire class and gave a special laminated copy to President Glotzbach.
Phyllis Emmerich Blair held an exhibit of her art at Sheep Hill, part of the Rural Lands Foundation in Williamstown, MA.
Peggy Gluck Wolf still enjoys the beautiful climate and life in Tucson, AZ. She wishes classmates could visit to share in the beauty of the landscape.
Last fall Ellen Hart Mulvey moved to Arbour Ridge, an independent living residence in Rhinebeck, NY. She loves it there. Ellen chats with Beth McComb often, and they play bridge once a month.
Priscilla Huntington Silliman was not able to attend our 65th but is in good health.
The class history for our 65th included a sad reminder that Evelyn Russell Hutchinson died of cancer in 1961, at age 39.
Alice Mungall Porter is doing well after knee-replacement surgery in February. Kit has also undergone three hip surgeries. In January she welcomed a new great-grandson; he is one of her three greatgrandchildren. Unfortunately, says Kit, his parents (dad is a lawyer for a NYC-based firm) have moved him to Japan for the next two years.
Jane Pearce Lowe is a widow. Although sometimes lonely, she says she is fairly content in sunny Florida, with good friends and great family to “shove me along.” A treat was visiting family in New England this summer.
Catherine Rothery Schilling is in her eighth year at Crosslands Retirement Community at Kennett Square, PA. She continues to play chamber music and attend concerts by the Philadelphia Orchestra. Her three children, one of whom lives in Philly, and two grandchildren are well. Health concerns kept her from attending Reunion.
Jane Zirinsky Haskell was also sorry to have missed Reunion. But she and Rowie Seh Samson held their own version this summer at Rowie’s new home in Chapel Hill, NC. While there they visited Asheville and Penland, where craftspeople open their studios to display their work. Jane is still painting and doing computer-enhanced artwork.
Ilse Senn Epprecht spent April viewing the tulips and windmills of Amsterdam.
Carol Stone Luckenbach ’71 wrote in to correct an error in the last Scope. Her mother, Betty Bonnewell (not Bonneville) Stone, who died in 2008, was the grandmother (not the great-grandmother) of Sarah Luckenbach Schulenburg ’04. At Sarah’s graduation, they were recognized as the only three-generation family in attendance. Carol writes, “My mother was very proud of her Skidmore legacy.”
I too regret missing Reunion this year. I was happily celebrating the 90th birthday of my husband, Gordon, with family and friends.
