Phyllis Emmerich Blair held an exhibi- tion last fall at the Rural Lands Founda - tion in Williamstown, MA. She sold 15 paintings, the proceeds of which support the foundation’s education program. She spent a rainy, cold winter in Boynton Beach, FL, and returned to Williamstown this summer. Still active, Peggy Gluck Wolf walks almost every day for two miles with a group of other women; she is the senior in the group. She has taken up piano playing and maintains outdoor and green - house gardens. Doris Grumbacher Remine shares the sad news that Bill, her husband of 66 years, passed away in July 2009, a year after having a stroke. “He lived that year with courage and grace,” says Doris. After 20 years in Florida Bee Jay Huber Billings has moved “home” to Glaston - bury, CT. Her children, grandchildren, and great-grands are in the vicinity, and Bee Jay wanted to be nearer them in “my old age,” she says. She lives in a five-room rental owned by her son, which gives her direct access to the “super.” Doris Merz Wyckoff enjoyed five fun- filled days with her two granddaughters, their spouses, a 1-year-old great-grandson, and 6-month-old great-granddaughter. She felt very lonely when they left. Jane Pearce Lowe left her beloved Flor - ida condo for an Andover, MA, apartment. She’s now nearer her sons and their fami- lies: Steve lives in West Hartford, and Cam eron and his wife are in Andover. The arrangement was their idea. Jane says, “So far, so good!” She enjoyed spring in New England, with trees budding and blossoming—“so different from dear old ‘Flaaadah.’”


Alvera Schuyler Squire’s stepson Rick Squire moved her from an assisted-living facility in New Jersey to the Lutheran Home at Concord Reserve in Westlake, OH, so that he can do a better job of looking after her; he lives nearby. Alvera is in the facility’s memory-support area. Jane Zirinsky Haskell was visited by Rosalie Seh Samson in June, when they attended the wedding of Rowie’s great- niece in Pittsburgh. Jane’s work was ex - hibited this summer in several locations as part of the 100th anniversary of the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh. Her cop- per and aluminum sculpture won an award in the Interface exhibition at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. Marion Whiting Brandon’s daughter Cindy accompanied her in May to see

I wish I could have attended our 65th reunion, but physical limita- tions would have made it too difficult. I hope all who did attend had a wonderful time. I was there in spirit! CAROL FLEISCHER BOSWELL 106 OLD BILLERICA ROAD, ROOM 231 BEDFORD, MA 01730 781-860-0482

most of the clan to a trip to Bermuda. Joyce Kouwenhoven LeRoy’s grand- child graduated from Penn State in May. Joyce has another grandchild who is 15. I reached Marion Hess at their longtime residence in Sands Point on Long Island. She still teaches English as a second lan- guage and volunteers for a local hospital. The class extends sympathy to Joan Houghton Wynne, who recently lost hus band William. When I phoned Joanie, her son Tony had arrived from Washing - ton, DC, to be with her. Dorothy Rogers Dewey and Doris Davis Nathanson are both happily en - sconced in NYC life and don’t intend to move away. Dorothy did graduate studies at Columbia.

Barbara Cameron Forbes is busy with her bridge club and six chil- dren, most of whom live near her in New Hampshire. When I asked if she’d come to our next reunion, she quickly said no—she’d need a ride to Togatown (can we find that for her?). In Sarasota, FL, Cilla Wheeler Vickery was awaiting visitors from the North. She suggested I call Eleanore Steffens Nissley in New Jersey. I caught Rocky at home; she’s busy as a New Jersey committee- woman and with her 21 grandchildren and great-grands. Rocky said she’s treating

Jane Geibel Morton is home from Flor - ida. One of her grandsons is a pitcher with the Pittsburgh Pirates. Mary Keyworth Sowles is moving to Knoxville, TN, to be nearer to two daugh- ters and several grandchildren. Our president Betty Noyes McMath is recovering from a terrible fall. I talked with husband Gil’s daughter, who said he celebrated his 96th birthday and is doing well. Virginia Miller Lyon is happy to an - nounce that we passed our annual fund goal, so thank you all for your support. I saw Jeanne Clements Roth in Sacra - mento, CA; she was in town to attend a huge jazz festival. Mike and I were there because I had always wanted to see our state capitol. We also toured the old gov- ernor’s mansion and shops.


I returned to southern California in late spring after a wonderful trip to Saratoga Springs, Albany, and NYC for my grand- son’s graduation from Columbia. We had a nice Jerman family reunion there that included daughter Barbara Jerman Gin - man ’72. DO DUNKEL JERMAN 1983 STANDSTONE VISTA LANE ENCINITAS, CA 92024-4247 DOJERMAN@ATT.NET
