Barbara Smith Mettler joined the ranks of 90-year-olds in July, at a big party with family and friends in Virginia Beach, VA. She lives at Foulkways in Gwynedd, PA, near two of her five children—“a wise and happy move.” Her e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Margaret Schwem Sager moved to the Terrace, an assisted-living facility in Asheville, NC, last August. She has a lovely sunny apartment overlooking a patio area. She says the living is enjoyable and easy.
Jane Griswold says she can’t believe she’s still here. She drives, gardens (with help), shops, and cooks. She also takes day trips to interesting places with a gentleman friend who is younger.
Helen Garrett Dejnozka is busy as a choir keyboardist and clerk of session for her church. Son Jan visited last June with two granddaughters. She is in frequent contact with her daughters via cell phone when traveling for harp gigs and teaching.
Regina Nean Wilson Barringer moved to Union Park, an assisted-living community in Monroe, NC, where she feels blessed to be close to her home and children. She enjoy spending time with her 13 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
Evelyn Tiffany Schaefer, who lost her husband in 1985, still maintains her eight-room house. Tiffy works in the yard, bowls, and plays bridge. She has two children, five grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren; her dog keeps her active too.
Nette Meads Hoyt had a wonderful 90th birthday in Vero Beach, FL, celebrating with 41 relatives and friends, including Kay Lyall. In October she and Kay had a three-week trip through the Suez Canal and Gulf of Aden to Oman and Dubai with six relatives and 20 friends. Nette’s still painting and enjoying life at her summer place on Martha’s Vineyard.
Mary Heber Mathews wants to know more about what our classmates are doing these days. She still doodles sad and happy faces on her letters.
Irving Silverman has published A Trilogy: Three Hearts, One Soul, which documents his recovery from major life tragedies, including the loss of his wife, Nancy Neal Mergentime Silverman, in 2002.
I heard from Shirley Whitney Talcot, who attended our 65th along with Barbara Smith Mettler. Our 70th is only a year away.
I enjoyed a three-week South American cruise in February. Back at home, I’m having a great time here at the Cedars, playing golf and croquet (you should see me in my white attire), line dancing, and playing mah-jongg. I need a day off!
