Gladys Gillman Taylor is “still riding the coattails” of her celebrity daughter, Jill Bolte Taylor, author of Stroke of Insight. With publishing rights picked up in more than 20 countries, the Taylors continue on a publicity tour of Europe. GG says, “It is a fantastic ride.”
Jean Riley Guretsky has moved to Pine Back Lakes, FL. Her husband, Joe, died of a vein hemorrhage in 2007. We extend our sympathy to Jean.
Ruth Montgomery Merritt loved Reunion. Now that her health is improving with therapy, she hopes to travel to celebrate her 82nd birthday. Monty and her husband headed for the Florida Keys right after Election Day, to enjoy another winter on their wooden boat. They stopped in Melbourne to dine with Ann Crooks Seltzer and husband Dick. Crooksie exclaimed, “What a great reunion we had.”
Larry and I got together this past fall with June Lynn Freeman and husband Leon while attending a Skidmore event in NYC—a J. W. M. Turner exhibition tour at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. A fabulous lunch at the members’ dining room followed. It was a great day. At the end of August, Larry and I headed for a Montreal vacation. On our way back we met Sally Cheney Buell and Art for dinner in Albany, NY. Skidmore’s VP for academic affairs and former English professor Susan Kress joined us for a rousing discussion about the nature of education; we had a lot of fun.
