Susan West Hirsh retired as a clinical social worker at a state psychiatric hospi- tal for children and a local hospice. She is busy with photography and writing proj- ects. She transferred from Skidmore to Bennington College after two years to “perhaps escape the expectations of my family,” she says. She values both schools greatly but says “my heart and soul are with Skidmore, where I had good friends and forever carry with me the fine teach- ings of art-history professor Baruzzi and Asian-studies professor Hsu.” Concurrent with our 45th reunion, Sandy Berk Jacoby and husband Richard celebrated 45 years of marriage and the

bia, MD, to Annapolis six years ago. She specializes in treating anxiety disorders at a private mental-health practice. She’d love to work from January to April so she could enjoy spring, summer, and the holi- days stress-free, but she says “the powers that be aren’t buying it” and her tennis and golf games are suffering. Husband Jack (Colgate ’65) is retired from private practice as a clinical psychologist but works as a consultant to the National Security Agency several days a week. Daughter Stacey (Colgate ’95), lives in Alexandria, VA, with her husband and a son and daughter; she has a demanding full-time job.

NYC resident Andrea Peterson Mauro reports that son Addison completed his sophomore year at the Chicago Music Conser vatory and transferred to Skid - more, where he is majoring in music. Andrea is happy that he can practice and perform in the new Zankel Music Center and contribute to the music community. She and her husband are also pleased that he will get a liberal arts education, “round- ing out the narrower world of music per- formance.” The couple bought a weekend house in Sag Harbor and hopes Skidmore classmates who have homes in the area will get in touch with them. Liz LeCompte still directs the Wooster Group, which opened its production of the Tennessee Williams play Vieux Carré at the Baryshnikov Arts Center in Man - hattan in February. One of the author’s lesser-known later works, the drama is based on his experience living in a room- ing house in New Orleans in the 1930s. The first Williams play undertaken by the group, Vieux Carré was staged in Los An - geles and at the Edinburgh International Festival in Scotland last year. The Wooster Group is based at the Performing Garage in NYC’s Soho district. Dennis Tinsley shared the sad news that


his wife, Judy Zietz Koch Tinsley, passed away in May at home in Avon, CT, with her family by her side. She had battled brain cancer since 2009. Married in 1996, the couple “had a wonderful life together,” he says. Dennis says she “enjoyed sharing her beautiful singing talent with others” and was “a composer of some fabulous music.” She raised three children from her first marriage, and “each one has the same character, values, charm, and kind- ness as their mother.” We extend our con- dolences to Dennis and the rest of Judy’s family.


Laurie Mandelbaum Goldberg in formed


me that Honey Koenig Gardiner died in June, less than three weeks after suffering a stroke and the discovery of cancer in her brain, lungs, and elsewhere. “Honey was an amazing person, so giving and loving, and such a loyal friend,” says Laurie. She and Honey were roommates for all four years at Skidmore. “We shared many of life’s important events together and remained good friends all these years,” Laurie says. “I am grateful to Skid more for introducing me to her. Those of us who knew her will miss her greatly.” We send our sympathies to Honey’s family.
