Sue Wilkinson Hunter and her husband both retired in 2007 and moved to Simpsonville, SC. They wanted less winter, and more golf through the year.
Jane Boyle Gerrish reports that life is full. She continues as an independent contractor and vocational rehabilitation counselor and also baby-sits afternoons and evenings for her granddaughter. She also stays busy in her church.
Carole Little Weg and her husband are now Florida residents, except for three months each summer when they live in Southwest Harbor, ME. Carole says her children and grandchildren seem more interested in visiting them in Florida rather than their former place in Princeton, NJ.
Linda Smith Thurston and Dave took the plunge and moved to Port Charlotte, FL, although they visit their daughters and granddaughters in New Jersey frequently. Life in Florida allows Linda to continue her seasonal training activities and play lots of tennis and golf.
Alice Hammond Soininen and Tom are now both retired. After a 15-year teaching career, she joined the corporate world as a software engineer. She soon moved into managing developers and testers for the Hartford’s AARP auto and property insurance. Retirement finds the Soininens at home in Sutton, VT, and Stonington, CT. They visit their three kids and families, including six grandchildren in Massachusetts, California, and Virginia. They went on a three-week Elderhostel trip across Russia on the Trans-Siberian Railway and spent a month in Sweden with Alice’s Experiment-in-International-Living sister.
Linda Hellmich-Brink and her husband spent a wonderful summer in Sunapee, NH, with visits from all their grandchildren. They then returned to their home in Sarasota, FL, where they enjoy the terrific weather. Linda and her husband stay busy with travel, golf, tennis, and numerous cultural activities. She would love to hear from classmates in New Hampshire or Florida.
Nancy Selib Brown has been living in Minneapolis for many years. A qualitative marketing-research consultant (focus-group moderator), she also leads quit-smoking groups at worksites. Daughter Susie and her husband live nearby, giving Nancy plenty of opportunities to see her two young grandchildren. Son Steve and his wife live in the San Francisco Bay area.
Anne Burrows’s son, James Ibbotson ’07, graduated in May. Anne visited Skidmore at least once each year during his time there. She says she got a big kick out of trying to find her old dorms, classroom buildings, and restaurants and bars; she figured out that the old “No Name” is now the “Tin and Lint.” Anne sells real estate in Aspen, CO, with Mason & Morse. She’s in the phone book and says she’d love to hear from any visiting classmates.
Last spring Stephanie Rose celebrated the addition of her painting Night [In The Vanishing Hall No. 1] to the Albany Institute’s collection. This is the second of her works to join this collection. Both paintings are promised gifts of Albert B. Roberts.
The class is saddened to learn that Sandra Scott Klink passed away in 2004 after a long illness. We send condolences to her daughters, Trina and Kirsten Morehouse Kenney ’88. Sandra’s husband, Fredric, died this past October. We remember Sandra as a talented editor and dedicated volunteer with a passion for animals, folk art, and literature.
I’m in my 28th year as a senior tax advisor with H&R Block, although these days I am working through the January–April 15 tax season. My husband Bill is retired from the school system but works much of the time now as a court interpreter for the Spanish language. Partial retirement has left us free to travel; last spring we took a transatlantic cruise from Galveston, TX, to Barcelona, and in October we traveled to Italy, Sicily, and Croatia. Our kids and their families both live nearby. With six grandchildren keeping us on our toes, life is full, busy, and fun!
