Among the guests were old school chums, including Ruth Mook Kerr, newer friends from Edith’s garden club, and neighbors. She affirms: “I hope never to recover from the warm glow of love that filled the air.” The class extends sympathy to the fami-


ly of Genevie Wyckoff Sewell, who died June 11. We remember her energy and enthusiasm for whatever she undertook. We also express sympathy to the family of Jean Summersgill Neis winter, who passed away on January 14. I remember Jean as a serene, sweet-natured person. I moved to a retirement apartment two blocks from my house in December. I’m very comfortable here but still have a house and a lot of furniture to dispose of in this shaky economy. Don’t forget, our 70th reunion will take place June 2–5. Ruth Mook Kerr and I plan to attend, and we’re hoping to see some of you there too!
