for three years. They live in Columbus, OH. For the past 27 years, Maryellen has been a medical-malpractice defense law - yer; her nursing background is a great advantage. Arthur teaches English and math to learning-disabled high school kids. They plan to retire in two years and visit favorite places: California, Alaska, Italy, and the British Isles. Moving back to the East Coast is also in the cards. Judy Kapp Winder’s daughters, who were born five years apart, got married last October on the same day. They had two rehearsal dinners, a wedding, a luncheon in between, a second wedding, and a joint reception. Brad and Susie Mc - Neily Craig arrived from Maine; family and friends came from England and Germany. Judy headed to England in July for her niece’s wedding. Susie Craig and Brad enjoy living on a farm in Maine’s midcoast, where they raise chickens and host family and friends for visits. Susie is associate conference minister for the United Church of Christ, which lets her travel all over the state. She would love to hear from any Skid - more folks in the area. Christine Neill teaches painting and drawing at Maryland Institute College of Art, which allows her and husband Lew to summer in New Hampshire. She is planning a solo exhibit at the Southern Vermont Art Center in Manchester, from November 20 (the opening reception is 2–4 p.m.) through January 2. Alex Schilling Friedman and her hus- band traveled to London for the wedding of son James, who has been there for the past two and a half years. Alex continues to pursue her artwork. Phyllis Fradkin Boynton sold her solo geriatric-care-management practice in January to Constellation Health Services of Norwalk, CT, and is starting up a new one for a home-health-care agency. The company will soon open another branch in Orange, CT, which is just a 15-minute commute. Husband Bob maintains his law practice. Daughter Amy was married last July at Jay Peak Resort, VT; Amy and husband Tyler live in Fort Collins, CO, where she is a high school special-ed teacher. Bob and Phyllis visited them in March and enjoyed the unique beauty of that part of the country. Phyllis is in fre- quent contact with Heather Knicker - bocker Chace and Sandra Davis Flood and was glad that they and their hus- bands could attend Amy’s wedding. Suzanne Jebb Tether’s daughter Eliza - beth was married last July; the ceremony was followed by a garden reception at the

Tethers’ home overlooking Lake Sunapee, NH. Sue and Harry celebrated their 40th anniversary in September. Sue says Harry is “a total failure at retirement”: he travels frequently as a consultant for the US Treasury. This spring they spent 10 won- derful days in San Francisco and Sonoma and then made a trip to Costa Rica, where they zip-lined and rappelled in the jungle canopy. “Phew!” she says. “That’s off the bucket list.”


Earlier this year, I enjoyed great visits


with Mary Hardman LaPorte. She and husband Bob were in California in Janu - ary, and then Mary joined me for Daffodil Festival on Nantucket in April. The sunny, warm weather set off all the yellow for- sythia and daffodils. I hear frequently from our alumni association president, Judy Roberts Kunisch. Nancy Hantman wants to set the record straight on some news in the last issue: Mary Lee Duff and Laurie Greaves Lan - dreth represented Skidmore at the memo- rial service for Deena Glass in January. Sue Hubbard Okie’s daughter Suzanna


’11, a Skidmore art major, loved her se - mester in Florence, Italy, and was plan- ning to spend this summer in Saratoga Springs. Sue continues her real estate career as well as volunteering, playing tennis, and gardening. Cathy Cordova Reinitz and husband moved to the Sarasota, FL, area from Po - to mac, MD. She retired from teaching fifth grade; her husband has been retired for 10 years. Their three daughters live and work in Manhattan; Karen is a suc- cessful fashion designer with her own company, AKA New York; Julie is an in - vestment banker; and Amy is a PR coordi- nator.


Our condolences go to Howard Kaplo - witz, who wrote that his wife of 35 years, Sara Jane Ritz Kaplowitz, passed away on March 5. “She struggled with a recur- rence of breast cancer that was diagnosed five months prior,” he says. Sara was a physical therapist who had just opened a larger office about the time that she dis- covered her cancer had recurred. She was also excited about news of a new grand- child on the way and an upcoming wed- ding for youngest son Aaron.

Janet Sangenito Fagal’s third- grade class at the State Street School in Skaneateles, NY, was featured on the syracuse.com Web site in June.


Janet has been teaching her pupils to ap - preciate language by memorizing poetry and reciting it in front of audiences. In doing so, she has “sneakily” been teach- ing grammar and punctuation and adding descriptive language to their vocabulary. I couldn’t be at Reunion, but my crack junior reporter Jane Roberts Alpert gave me an account, including the news that our classmates “closed” Longfellow’s on Thursday night and left “feeling very, very good.” Attendees also enjoyed Friday evening at our dear David Marcell’s home. Always the consummate host, Dave pro- vided great hors d’oeuvres, drinks, and conversation for all. We are so grateful for his hospitality and generosity. The alumni art exhibition included works by Ann Forshay Breaznell, Carolyn Ray,and Annie Rogers Schliffer. At the ceremony in the new Zankel Music Center (the bag- pipers were awesome), the honorees in - cluded Sharon Pfau Whiteley and Gail Dudack. While we didn’t quite reach 70 percent participation in giving, we smashed our gift-amount goal. At Satur - day’s dinner we enjoyed vocal trio Terri Huxtable, Carol Christensen, and Liz Hood—they have only gotten better over the last 40 years—and our guests included Anne Palamountain, Claire Olds, Tom Davis, Murray Levith, and James Kettle - well. The night ended with a marvelous fireworks display over the campus. Mary Lou Kidd is director of counseling


services for Hospice of the Sacred Heart in Paupack, PA. BARBARA CROSSMAN BELL 218 CANDEE AVENUE SYRACUSE, NY 13224-1608 BICI@TWCNY.RR.COM

ning and preparing for hurricane season. Nicole Visconsi Mawby says she was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of MB McDonald. “She was my surrogate mother in my freshman year in Ross House —I have many fond memories.” Nicole is in Cleveland, making glass beads and jewelry, ballroom dancing, and en - joying life as a grandmother. She separ - ated from her husband after 35 years but says “life is good” with four healthy chil- dren, two grandbabies, lots of friends, and good health.
