mates known and previously unknown. Everyone seemed to have a good time, and the exciting fireworks display will always be memorable.” Her summer in Waitsfield, VT, included a godchild’s grad- uation from high school, local festivities, and lots of local foods. In August she was heading to Eastern Europe for 18 days. Carolyn Pringle Anastos had a great


time at our “fantastic 50th reunion bash” and adds, “I can’t believe I had fun in a chemistry class. And ate so much bacon— my arteries will never be the same! We may have a few wrinkles, but the class of 1962 was back in full force. We certainly felt like honored alumnae and thoroughly enjoyed everything from the sail on Lake George to the golf and the quilt Mollie put together.”


Lilla Andrews Gidlow continues to ski- race downhill, superG, giant slalom, and slalom. She medaled this year, placing third in four events at the national cham- pionships at Park City and second in four events in the international champion ships at Mammoth Mt. She won a downhill tro- phy in Colorado and many other local races throughout the year. She also plays tennis. She is pleased to have ex posed all seven grandchildren to the outdoors with camping and canoeing in Minnesota’s Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. She was not able to attend Reunion as she is engaged in a caretaker role now. In January Carol Copeland Schmid - hauser and Dutch went to New Zealand again with two other couples for a month and then spent six nights in French Poly - nesia—the first three in “an over-the-water bungalow where we could get right in the water with all sorts of colorful fish.” When they came home to Texas they bought a house in Waco, went to Switzerland to visit Dutch’s relatives, took a Mediterran - ean cruise to celebrate their 49th anniver- sary, and planned to have grandkids visit. Twila Fleckten Wolfe’s knee replace- ment is working well, she reports. “I’m downhill and cross-country skiing, play- ing tennis, bicycling, and I hiked down to the bottom and back up the Grand Can yon in April.” In June she was plan- ning to visit South Africa, Botswana, Zim - babwe, and Zambia. Patricia Gail Homer Jones was sorry to


miss Reunion. She loves living in North Palm Beach, FL, and spends summers in the North Carolina mountains. Cathy Nims Swett has been in New Hampshire for four years, near her oldest son and family, to help her through some medical problems. She says, “We thor- oughly enjoy the beautiful scenery, tower-


ing pines, and fresh, clean air.” She’s also interested in the big farmhouses, old barns, and stone walls in the area. She adds, “This is a lonely area to live in, so come visit us!” Nancy Sargent Howell still teaches and paints in watercolor and acrylic (see her work at nancyhowellstudio.com). She says, “I continue to lead annual painting trips to Europe and around the US. I’m a past president of the New England Water - color Society and artist member of the Copley Society. Husband Larry, children, and grandchildren are all doing well.” Charlotte Wood Wheeler was sorry to


miss the fun at Reunion; her husband was scheduled for surgery. She says, “Thanks to Skidmore for expanding horizons and making work in garden design possible. Sitting in front of Indira Gandhi was memorable.”


Patricia Gordon Shikes still teaches high school in Denver, CO. She switched from French to Spanish. Both of her children live in Denver, and she often helps take care of the grandchildren. Two years ago she went to the Santa Fe Opera with her good friend Nancy-Jean Ballard Seigel. SUSAN SAMBROOK BERRY 402 NH ROUTE 25A WENTWORTH, NH 03282-3119 603-764-9802 LCDRSSBERRYRET@YAHOO.COM


writes, “After spend- ing the winter on an island off Cancun, Mexico, we retired to Leisure World in Silver Spring, MD.” They are the grandparents of two girls and three boys, ages 4 months to 8 years. Bev - erly says, “We still love the Washington area.”

Her 39-year history of exhibitions includes 22 solo shows in NYC, Istanbul, Dallas, and Chi - cago, and her works are in museums across the US. Professor Emeritus James Kettlewell has noted her “quite delectable surface treatment” and said her work “occupies a critical place in modern/post- modern art history… Utterly original, her style effects a perfect synthesis between these two opposing philosophies of art.” Judy Pick Eissner had elective surgery

in NYC, where she and her husband have an apartment. Recovery re quired a six- week stay in the city, so Judy was able to enjoy friends and the cultural life there. She “saw a lot of Linda Hamm Adams, which was great fun.” In spring she spent five weeks in Naples, FL, enjoying visits from family and friends. Anne Milnor O’Connor and Hollie Hicks Clay came for a birthday celebration, and Judy says, “We packed a lot of sightseeing, dining, and reminiscing into four days.” Phyllis Hansen Nemeth’s son Viktor and wife Meredith, who live in Del Mar, CA, are the proud parents of daughter Remington. Phyllis says her other grand- daughter, Marina, 7, was “enchanted by her baby cousin, when she visited from NYC. Her parents are my daughter Ilona and her husband, Alan.” Although official- ly retired from her “real” job in 2004, Phyllis spent the past five years volunteer- ing as California’s director for Con cerned Women for America. She was eager to get together with classmates Jane Homer Nolan and Jane Boyle Gerrish in Septem - ber on Block Island, RI. Since the Janes live in Connecticut and Maine respec - tively, Phyllis always flies east to join them, most recently in Portsmouth, NH. The trio gets together every three years or so and plans to attend our 50th reunion. Nancy Selib Brown occasionally does qualitative marketing research but is “mostly winding down, in favor of hang- ing out with my three grandchildren (ages 2, 5, and 8) and being the legal guardian of my mother, who has dementia and lives in Florida.
