our condolences to the family of this remarkable woman. She will be greatly missed.


Jo Madden and I had a great time catch- ing up during her New Year’s weekend visit to my home. We even started plans for our 60th at Skidmore; we hope that you all can be there. Bruce and I keep busy with garden, church, and family. Bruce builds amazing dollhouses; 37 of them are currently scattered around our house. We’ll soon have to start a minia- ture real estate business! We also enjoyed a delightful postholiday luncheon with Sallie Neuweiler Henrie and Art.

Margie Bowers Rogers was grand marshal for the Labor Day parade


in Newtown, CT. The parade theme, “Center Stage,” was a perfect match with her background in theater. Margie has been active with the Town Players for 47 years, serving as director, actor, producer, chair, and house manager. The group was also celebrating its 75th season. It was a great day. In October, she enjoyed a won- derful reunion with her daughter, son, and grandson from California and Utah, along with Lynn Rogers Porter, her daughters, and grandchildren from Cam - bridge, MA. Margie and husband Doug are sorry they could not make it to our 55th reunion.


Diane Davis Nelson’s grandson Nick was married in May in Houston, TX. He and bride Cassie live and work in Dallas. Other grandchildren are spread out across the country: one in Seattle, two in the Boston area, one finishing up at the Uni - versity of Tulsa, another in Washing ton, DC, and one in Illinois. The youngest, Abby, is a high school sophomore and star soccer player. Diane and Jim are well and busy.


Georgia Ann Goddard Charles is busy with volunteer work at a hospice and food and clothing bank. She still plays golf and enjoys her eight grandchildren. Her oldest granddaughter is getting mar- ried this spring.


Rhode Island resident Anne Griggs Danz berger is sorry to have missed Re - union; she was recovering from knee re - placement surgery. She and husband Alex escaped the northern weather and spent Christmas in Atlanta, GA, with their daughter, son-in-law, and grandson Tyler, 3. They were in Arizona in January, then traveled to Florida, by way of Atlanta, to


spend the month of February. They re - fused to return north until after the ice melted!


Nancy Passaro Whittaker is also sorry she was not able to attend Reunion. She arrived in NYC from San Francisco with two adult granddaughters and became ill. Happily, she is now well. She is enjoying retirement, and volunteers at a local hos- pital and her church.


Jacqueline Loohn Stempfle couldn’t make Reunion but was glad to hear it was successful and fun. She encourages any classmates traveling through Chapel Hill, NC, to look her up.


Audrey Schmierer Deren and husband Julius are doing well. He retired after 51 years of practicing medicine. They spend six months on Longboat Key, FL, and six months in Cherry Hill, NJ, and the Jersey Shore, where they sail on weekends. Schmaudie had her knee replaced last June and is fully recuperated. Their grand- kids are all grown up; the eldest graduated from Penn State last June and landed a great job that she loves. Mary Alice Johnson Frankenberger reports that her husband, Walter, died last May after a 30-year battle with heart dis- ease. Life is difficult now, and Mary Alice is taking it one day at a time. She is tutor- ing inner-city school children at New Haven Reads, a wonderful organization. She has lots of family around, including all four grandchildren, two of her three children, and a brother and a sister. She says family and friends are lifesavers. She is also editing and proofreading for a pro- fessor friend. Sue Gannon writes that her wonderful husband, Ed, passed away in August. They had recently celebrated their 52nd anni - versary.


Nancy Wind Ross lost husband Bruce on his birthday in October. He had been in failing health for the last year, but was enjoying the birthday celebration and on his way to a dinner party when he died. The class extends condolences to Mary Alice, Sue, and Nancy.
