In August I received a surprise phone call from Peggy Reid Blatchford, who was vacationing in Boothbay Harbor, ME, from California. She keeps in touch with Noreen Reilly O’Toole, who left Dallas, where she was
a part-time realtor and president of the Skidmore club for many years. Now in New Canaan, CT, she stays busy as a docent for the New Canaan Historical Society and attends the Philharmonic Opera in NYC.
Marjorie Jaeger Wilpon, who was sorry to miss Reunion, splits her time between NYC and Florida.
A Floridian since 1968, Ann Pizzutello Innocenti has spent her time there teaching art, reviewing books, and playing golf. She also plays on a Palm Beach tennis team that was the Florida State Champion in 2005.
Betty Jennison Brady, who has been such an integral part of the Skidmore family as fund chair as well as president of our class and the Boston Skidmore club, is now volunteering at church, library, and school and still working as comptroller at the family business in Dover, MA.
Sally Kear Braun spends winter months riding horses on a Navajo reservation in Ceduna, AZ, with her husband, Sam. The couple lives in the coastal town of Green Hill, RI, during the summer.
Anne Davis Carrier, co-chair of Reunion 2013, enjoys life in Rio Verde, AZ, where she is active in sports and mentoring in the public schools. Like others drawn to Arizona, she has found a panacea for the travel bug.
Anne Mintener Heegaard, our other Reunion 2013 co-chair, has lived in Minneapolis, MN, for 50 years. She still enjoys her art and has a studio with five women friends. Her two daughters are also Skidmore grads.
Barbara Osborne Vulkoff and husband Craig enjoyed a cruise to the Baltic in September. Embarking from Stockholm, Sweden, the couple spent three days in St.
Marianne Maskey Oberlin lives in Hudson, OH, where she is an interior designer, drawing upon her memories of Saratoga’s great old homes.
Maggie Holahan Bilek retired after 24 years of teaching elementary grades in public school and 18 years in a private school setting. She enjoyed our reunion.
Shirle Jankowich, who taught art in the public schools for 37 years, now does a lot of volunteer work.
Linda Gross Singer founded a travel agency, Singer Travel Associates, in Rye, NY. She has traveled all over the world and is now working in a bit more leisure time to play golf. Linda keeps in touch with dear friends Marilyn Rosenberg Estes, Elsa Daspin Suisman, and Miya Umaki Uyeda.
Anne Bechtold Crowe lived in Japan for six years and has spent the past 40 years in Hawaii. Her travel business has taken her around the world, most recently to the northern regions of Pakistan and Nepal.
Beverly Beatson Grossman moved from Rye, NY, to southern California in 1964.
A longtime member of many art associations, including the National Watercolor Society, she runs an art center and manages two homes.
Phyllis Atwood Walsh recently retired after 30 years of teaching second and fourth grades in six different locations. Her poem, “Little instructions for happiness: Stay loose and learn to watch snails,” can be found on our class Web site.
Tom and I had a fabulous cruise to Alaska and trip to Seattle, Portland, Lake Tahoe, and San Francisco in September. Alaska’s glaciers and unspoiled landscape take one’s breath away. Seeing the melting and the changes in the topography brings to one’s attention the issue of global warming.
