Dymond Barnett, who traveled from Cape Cod, the pair invited Tillie Jones Neri, Mary Lyman Heist, Sally Sander- son Cutler, and Jane Mackay Howe to join them for lunch. Over Bloody Marys, they entered deep conversation about our Skidmore days, which they all agreed were “some of the happiest of our lives,” per Ann. Bobbie Fee Dickason visited childhood friend and freshman roommate Barbara Hattan Sutherland on the Cape, where they met up with Mikey McClement O’Connor for lunch. The trio shared won- derful memories and laughter. Bobbie, who has had cataract and hip surgery, looks forward to regaining her golfing skills.

I was saddened to learn of the sudden passing of Joanne Teale Snell’s husband, Don, on December 1. Joanne and Don have been very close friends of Roger’s and mine for the past 60 years.

Patricia Louise DuBois McIsaac and John sold their condo in Naples, ME, and moved to Pawleys, SC, for the winter. They are relocating to a retirement com- munity in Easton, MD, close to their daughter and son-in-law in Saint Michaels, MA.


Nancy Cooke Luce and Bob enjoy re- tirement near the Blue Ridge Parkway in Mountain Lake, VA. They are active in their community and church as well as with family. Nancy is still doing commis- sions in stained glass and partakes in a fun group called Artists on the Loose. She can be reached at lucenest@gmail.com. Over the holidays Pat Kennedy Snyder-


man met up with Ginnie Stotz, who still lives in a fifth-floor walk-up in Greenwich Village, and Jill Shelling Remy, who re- cently moved back from China to Allen- town, PA. They enjoyed an afternoon in NYC. Although MoMA was crammed with tourists, Ginny’s skillful reconnaissance helped them bypass the lines and grab a bite in one of the museum cafés. They then took in Fifth Avenue and the tree at Rockefeller Center, which Pat says was “the prettiest in years.” Ginny took lots of photos. Jill, who spent many years teach- ing in China, was amazed at how New Yorkers politely queued up to enter buses. Pat hosted Ginny and Jill at her Gramercy Park apartment before dinner at the Na- tional Arts Club. They all had a great time. Jill welcomes hearing from class- mates at chinajill1998@yahoo.com. Sallie Neuweiler Henrie and I had the pleasure of joining family and friends of Jo Schmidt Madden at a celebration of her 80th birthday this past year.

Diane Davis Nelson and Jim attended the wedding of her granddaughter on St. John, VI, earlier this year. The reception is set for August in Lake George, NY, with the entire family. Granddaughter Abby, a high-school junior in Maryland, captured All-Metro and All-State honors for her soccer abilities. Mary Alice Johnson Frankenberger shared the sad news that her oldest grand- son fell off a cliff and is now a paraplegic. He is nonetheless doing remarkably well; the 18-year-old is ready to graduate from high school in June and attend college this fall. Mary keeps up with the lives of all seven grandchildren, four of whom are teenagers. She also visits NYC to attend the theater, museums, and a book club. Barbara McBride Sterling sold her house in Tallahassee, FL, last July and is living in Westminster Oaks, a nearby con- tinuing-care community. Although it’s a big change not having a home to care for, Mickey says she rather likes having dinner served every night, a maid who cleans twice a month, and a maintenance man who shows up promptly to replace light- bulbs or repair a toilet. She also is getting used to having a pool, a gym, and an auditorium for concerts and movies. She maintains a condo at Shell Point and drives there almost every week to paint. “It’s a whole new life,” she says. Marion “Dutch” Rendell Seaton and husband Jim see Jo Firor Alfenito and Ralph now and then. Dutch is pleased to report that second granddaughter Mere- dith Simonds ’15 loves being a Skidmore freshman

Audrey says they are not big on travel and prefer hav- ing their kids and grandchildren come visit them. She can be reached at schmaudie@ gmail.com.
