Ellie Boughner Axford says things are great in Charlotte, NC. She keeps up with grandchildren in Chicago and Boston and watched several other grands graduate from high school last spring. Last spring Ronnie Brody Raab had lunch with Connie Swedlin Sultan, Carol Werle Deering, Sally Wagman Hoge, Jean Lechleitner Weisel, and Rosemary Wheatley Hudson in NYC. Ronnie notes, “What a treat it was to be included amongst the nursing crowd.” In June she and husband Ed traveled to Brazil, where a highlight was Oro Preto, a World Heritage Site that retains its Por - tuguese history and culture. They also spent another glorious summer sharing their Deer Isle, ME, place with friends and family; they were especially pleased to see their grandchildren enjoying one anoth- er’s company. Virginia Stevenson Kingsley visited daughter Karen Kingsley Corzilius ’79, husband Jeff, and their daughter Katha - rine, 11, this past summer. Virginia also lunched with Nancy Barrett Eadie and her husband, Peter, at their beautiful new home in Hudson, NY, where Virginia and husband Bud got to experience Hurricane Irene!

Rosemary Sheridan Phillips says she very much enjoyed our 55th reunion last June. Amy Celotto Mongillo and husband John celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with a “moveable feast,” starting with an April cruise on the fabu- lous Oasis of the Seas. In July their son Jim, with wife Patricia and daughters Elizabeth and Alexandra, treated the cou- ple to a chartered sailboat trip along the Croatian islands, where they enjoyed “lots of sun and fun” and beautiful Adri - atic scenery. Later in the summer all five grandchildren and three children and their spouses celebrated the Mongillos’ milestone year at a party held in Narra - gan sett, RI.

Since then, Ingrid welcomed a ninth grandchild. She keeps in touch with Ju - dith Mack Bohrman and husband Bruce, who live in Yarmouth, ME, and Judith Lyman Shipley and husband Walter, who live in Summit, NJ. Ingrid is looking for- ward to Reunion. Both of Joan Gaston Ioannidis’s daugh-


ters were married in 2011, one for the first time and the other for the second time. Joan now has a few new grandchil- dren to add to the mix.

and 1, Harriet Kaye Sobol says she’s “a late bloomer”: her friends’ grandchildren are entering or attending college. Harriet leads writing workshops and book groups and urges interested classmates to visit her Web site, planetbookgroupie.com. In September Nancy Mann Germanetti


and Hugh attended a special Skidmore event in Austin, TX, to see the musical Rappahannock County staged at the Uni - versity of Texas. The play, which focuses on the residents of a county caught be - tween Union and Confederacy, was pre- ceded by a discussion of life during the Civil War, led by Prof. David Howson, who is Skidmore’s Arthur Zankel Director of Arts Administration, and Ricky Gordon, who composed the musical’s score. Nancy notes, “It was a masterful performance, and no one should miss it if the op por - tunity presents itself!” DOROTHY DODD O’MEARA 5 PONDSIDE LANE WEST SIMSBURY, CT 06092-2421 DOTTIEOMEARA@COMCAST.NET
