At her winter home in La Jolla, CA, in November, Louise Siegel Musser wrote, “There is not a cloud in the sky. Yesterday I had on shorts and flip-flops and was on the beach with the dogs. The East Coast will always be home, but this is certainly a great place to spend the winter.”
A photo Christmas card from Carolyn Caesar Ingraham showed daughter Lori growing up into a lovely little girl. Carolyn and her husband returned to China in April, making another visit to Lori’s old orphanage, where the people still remembered her.
Joyce Di Bona and 15 family members enjoyed a “very memorable” family cruise to the Caribbean over the holidays.
Jane Finneman Hochman and her husband have a flat in London, and on their last trip, over the Christmas–New Year period, they spent a fun day with Sabre Gilmartin (Lynda Sable), whom Jane hadn’t seen since she left Skidmore in 1961.
Laura Young gained two more grandsons in 2006; she now has a total of four. Still teaching at
the school of art and art history at the University of Iowa, she paints still-life concepts, which
she finds very “meditative.” Laura invites classmates to take in the university’s new art building
(via www.art.uiowa.edu); it’s in the form of a Picasso guitar.
Now retired, Hether Connor Turner and husband Sam spend their time in Rochester, NY, Nantucket, MA, and Siesta Key, FL, and visit their four grandchildren as much as possible. Hether’s daughter Michele Turner Bernhard ’88 lives in Northampton, MA, where she teaches English and creative writing at the high school. She has two daughters: Lucy, 3, and Hazel, 1.
Sam Turner ’89 lives in Sonoma, CA, with his wife, Anne, and children Grace, 7, and Jack, 4.
Sam owns a construction company in Sonoma. Bert Turner ’96 and wife Meg live in Nantucket, MA, where they own and operate the Water Closet, a high-end plumbing fixture showroom.
In the “atta-girl” department, Anne Beaman Brand completed her doctoral degree in clinical psychology and has been working at a community mental-health center in Berlin, NH, since May. Located in an underserved area, the work is challenging. Anne is working toward licensure and says, “I have erased the word retirement from my dictionary.”
Three of Lois Sommer Goglia’s giclee prints were exhibited for the first time at the Digital ’06: Bio/Med SciART exhibition at the New York Hall of Science in Queens, NY, this past winter. Created from DNA sequencing gels, human and animal X rays, mammograms, and ultrasound radiographs, the medical images are cut and pasted into collages, then photographed; some collages have their colors modified by computer. The giclee prints are from a larger body of Lois’s latest artwork titled Insight.
We finally got some snow up here in rural Vermont, making for some good sledding for grandkids. The earlier balmy weather had people asking, “Is this crisis, or curiosity?” Now about 80-percent retired, John is still doing some telecommuting; but no more four-hour weekly commutes to NYC. I am learning to share my space 24/7 after 10 years of living partially apart, and have to think about making real suppers every night! (Fortunately, he likes to cook.)
