Jeffrey Armstrong switched law firms in April 2007 and is a partner with Whiteman Osterman and Hanna in Albany, NY, the Capital Region’s largest law firm.
Last August Betsey Harrington, Holly Leather Kelsey, Nancy Foster Munoz, Robin Maley, Terry Thomas Fulmer, Mary Pat Roggenberg, Sarah Morgan Schwartzstein, Laurie Steinberg Bloom, and Sue Flanagan were invited to help celebrate the life of the late Debbie Smith by Debbie’s parents at their Chatham, MA, home. The classmates joined Debbie’s sister Becky, Becky’s husband and sons, and Debbie’s cousins for a lobster dinner, lunches, and a gourmet cookout on the beach. Betsey says, “Debbie’s loving spirit was present throughout the weekend; our collective stories about her generated tears and laughter but, most of all, gratitude for having had Debbie in our lives.” Betsey is a principal with Mercer Health and Benefits in Philadelphia, PA.
Gail Fraser’s third novel in the Lumby series was released by Penguin Group, under its imprint NAL. In a case of life imitating art, Gail and her husband, folk artist Art Poulin, are creating their own version of Lumby—the Lazy Goose Farm, 20 miles east of Saratoga Springs. The 40-acre property features a 200-year-old stone wall, a stream, and stunning views of the Adirondack, Catskill, and Taconic Mountains. Gail’s work is at lumbybooks.com.
Ruth Ann Wood McSpadden is still running her own interior design firm in NYC. Her eldest child graduated from Vanderbilt, winning the university’s largest art prize—which enabled her to travel, study, and put on a one-woman show of her landscape paintings this past January. Ruth’s other two children attend Duke University. One will graduate in May and is applying to law school; the other is a sophomore and budding film critic. “Skidmore connections touch our lives in both NYC and Amagansett, whether it is a teacher from my son’s school or a classmate’s retail business,” says Ruth. “There is nothing I cherish more than the friendships that I made over 30 years ago, particularly with Nancy Andrews Dyer, whom I still refer to as my roommate!” Nancy and Ruth get together several times a year and were excited when Patty Juris Berwald drove in from Long Island last April for a catch-up dinner in NYC. Ruth has also been able to connect with Susie Flanagan, despite Susie’s busy and very successful consulting business. During the summer Ruth and Chris Ehret Marver, who spends most of the summer in East Hampton, hang out on a regular basis. Chris is still winning tennis tournaments. Ruth’s goal this year is to organize an Oak B reunion; she encourages Rooney Mayberry Moy and Kiki Gallant Scoville to “get ready!”
