Patricia Benedict Lobdell and husband Harrison are enjoying life in Air Force Village II in San Antonio. Three of their four kids are now in Texas; the youngest is stationed in Okinawa for the third time. They have 11 grandchildren; four of the boys have gone to West Point. One is flying Black Hawk helicopters in Iraq, and his brother is almost through helicopter training. The Lobdells have one great-granddaughter, age 4. In May the couple attended Harry’s 60th West Point reunion and attended their fourth grandchild’s college graduation.
This past winter Marjorie Wendel Keenoy had a special treat of lunch with Ginny Gooch Puzak and Betty Eastman Peyton ’39.
In Massachusetts Peggy Bugbee Fisher is looking forward to rowing on the river.
Harriett Hebden Avery and Baldwin are getting used to their new digs in southeastern Pennsylvania but miss Florida and their friends there. “Thank goodness for telephones,” says Hebbie. In March the Averys spent almost a month with their daughter in Houston, TX; the weather was great. Their other two daughters live within about 15 minutes and “keep track of us very nicely,” Hebbie reports.
Priscilla Comins Craig is still playing golf and bridge. She summers in Sturbridge, MA, at her cottage on Big Alum Pond. Daughter Heather and her fiancé are looking for a large home for their combined family of six children; both have three from prior marriages.
Phyllis Hansen Edgcomb and Harry live in Pittstown, NJ, a village surrounded by rolling hills, farms, and wildlife. They enjoy the area, as do their cats and dogs. Last fall the couple took a two-week trip on a barge in France with Phyllis’s sisters and their husbands. “We are well, for two aging souls,” says Phyllis. The Edgcombs spent Easter week with their daughters and their families.
Doris Mertz Wyckoff and I enjoyed talking on the phone and being “just a little nostalgic” about our Skidmore days.
Charlotte Hilgert Troubetatroy’s family informed me that Charlotte passed away in March and wrote, “She is now in a peaceful place where sickness, sadness, and pain are no longer a concern. Our lives feel so empty without her.”
Ronnie Whiting Brandon sent me a program from a service in memory of Edith DeMott Hutchison, who died in February. Edith will be greatly missed by her many friends.
