Ruth Kettering Miller is now in the extended care section of the retirement home where she and her husband reside. Their new telephone number is 717-228-2387.

Emily Klinkhart still lives alone in her apartment in NYC. She is in reasonably good health and is able to take care of herself.

Mary Loughran Hilton is in a very good living situation— a retirement home with a small number of people. She said her health is pretty good and she hopes it will stay that way.

Roseclaire Ludvigh Duff is living in her home in Norwalk, CT, with a minimum of help. Eight years ago, she had an operation that slowed her down. She still drives, so she is able to be quite independent. Her children and grandchildren live in Norwalk; she is able to see them frequently.

Jane Stubley Brock’s son Kevin Romey writes that his mother maintains clear, fond memories of her days at Skidmore.

In September, my granddaughter Taffy Clifford gave me twin great-grandsons, Scott and Daniel. All goes well and I’m so pleased and proud. I recently had occasion to encourage a young woman from Connecticut, who is now a freshman at Skidmore. Kathleen Spencer ’04 entered a state-wide art contest sponsored by a youth arts organization that I serve as board chair.

Saratoga Springs resident Eleanor Corey Qua has donated a snapshot of Woodlawn oval (site of the present Jonsson Campus) to the College archives. Taken by her father, John Corey, Eleanor removed it from a family album where her son, John, had placed the notation, “A good place to hike and fish, especially with one’s grandfather.”

The class sends condolences to Rosemary Terhune Copenhaver, who lost her husband of 66 years, L.B. Copenhaver, in February 2000. She is now living in Sedona, AZ, near a daughter and family.

Betty Kingman Wood is rebounding from a bout with lung cancer. Although she still has several chemo treatments to take, she reports that the malignant area is shrinking.

Mary Williams Russell, Irene Neumann Drucker and Betsy Dexter Dauchy live within a few miles of each other in Palm Beach County and visit each other often.

Trudy Congress Fergerson still plays piano professionally for dinner theater groups.

Doris Lehman Achterkirchen lives in Santa Barbara, CA, where she co-manages a residence gift shop and volunteers at an area soup kitchen.

Eleanor Miltimore Wolff still walks three and a half miles daily, which she says, “starts her day off just right.”

Elizabeth Bonney Stratton enjoyed a visit with her sister and brother-in-law in Batavia, NY. She then continued traveling to Keuka Lake, Letchworth Park, and on to Rochester to visit her mother’s 102-year-old cousin.

Lib McClellan Trahan keeps busy visiting her scattered children who live in Sun Valley, ID, and Salem, OR. She and daughter Sally, who lives with her, recently remodeled their home.

The class of ’38 extends its sympathies to the families of Catherine Moore Carey, Jane Burnham Parker, and Louise Killam Farley.
