her fingers, so she can’t type anymore. She spends two hours a day with an exer- cise routine. She keeps busy in half a dozen community and state boardships (being the elder stateswoman). She stays involved with friends in eastern Pennsyl - vania and Marco Island, FL; she men- tioned Judy Sturtevant Harris, Lainie Vo - taw Bell, Mart Park Boswell, and Mary Lou Woodruff Street. Jerry Jacobson, husband of Audrey Platt Jacobson, who died in May, plans to give some of her work to Skidmore. Edith Neimark is still going strong in Princeton, NJ. Caroline Bruner Dean spent May through September in Ontario, at a fam - ily property where she golfs and husband Hank fishes in the St. Lawrence River. In Cheshire, CT, Adelaide Hodgman Marx had “three carpal-tunnel operations and a gall bladder out. All very easy and quite painless,” she says. Daughter Cindy, who has lived in the Cape May, NJ, area for 30 years, got married at age 52 for the first time. Son Timothy and his wife and daughter live in Massachusetts; Adelaide sees them at the lake in summertime. Daughter Sarah lives in Cheshire and is very helpful, calling every night “to make sure I’m still alive!” In June, Adelaide had “a terrific cruise from Lisbon to Rome; great weather and fun!” Ann Lilley Smith had dinner on Cape


Cod with Lou Woodruff Street and Bunny Davis Smith in August. Ann has nine grandchildren out of college and three in grad school; three are married, and she has two great-grandsons. All, she says, are “the loves of my life.” Mary Mitchell Durland’s “fabulous” Edgehill community in Stamford, CT, keeps her busy on the welcome commit- tee, entertaining new members, and vol- unteering in critical care. She says, “So many of my friends from Greenwich and Riverside are here, which is very comfort- ing and enjoyable.” They were planning a NYC bus trip to see Nice Work If You Can


Doris Higgons Popenoe has been in remission for more than a year.


Get It on Broadway. In December, Mary was flying to California to visit her daughter. I am alive and well, doing my usual


New Dorp High and St. Andrews stuff. Slowing down a bit. Had a yard sale in August; made $300. My grandson Jimmy helped set up the tables and put the left- over stuff back in the garage. I also had surgery on my gums. When sending news for Scope, I would appreciate it if you’d put your maiden name on the letter, as I am sometimes forgetful.

Diefendorf. Explaining that she didn’t graduate with her class but always consid- ered herself a loyal ’50er, he wrote, “It was in the winter of 1947 in the midst of a severe snowstorm when I, on bended knee, proposed to her, thus cutting her Skidmore career short. My gain was Skid - more’s loss.” Mary Angus Sachs and husband Dick

sold their home in California to return to their house in Ledyard, CT. The challenge has been combining the “artifacts” of two homes into one. She says, “It’s very good to be near family.” Ruth Niederlander Shoumate enjoyed


a cruise to “Amsterdam, along the Euro - pean coast to the Azores, and six days on the ocean; enjoyed those days because of Latin line-dance classes, morning and af - ternoon.” She has recuperated from a hip broken last May. Nancy Gallup Barbano fell and broke a shoulder last June. Recovering has been a challenge, but she says she’s getting back to normal. I spent last summer in the southern Ad - irondacks, on Sacandaga Lake. I toured historical sites in the area, including the Mount McGregor cottage where Ulysses S. Grant spent his final days and Sir William Johnson’s mansion in Johnstown. I also visited Skidmore’s Tang Museum.

In April Loisjane Perry Vannorsdall attended a “Skidmore family reunion” in Jacksonville, FL, at the home of sister Charon Perry Sisler ’59, where sister Cynthia Perry Newton ’59 joined them. She says, “Our hostess did a super job of organizing picnics, golf, and a concert. I didn’t want to go home. All spouses enjoyed the mini-reunion, too.” Barbara Schron Linde, living in her “55


and older” community in North Carolina, says, “At 83, I have no complaints. My two artificial hips and plate in my back may stop me at airports, but not here at the village of AOK Tree. Bridge is still my favorite sport.” All her grandchildren are happily married, and she enjoys her three great-grands. After enduring pneumonia and surgery


last year, Natalie Hazelton Mata has improved. She’s visited daughter Christina and family in Amherst, MA, and friends in Boston and on the Cape, and had a weekend in the Berkshires, where “Tanglewood took me past the humidity and heat here in Brooklyn,” she says. She also enjoyed her 65th high school reunion. George and I summered at our Prince -


ton, NJ, condo. Along with a trip to Tan - glewood in Massachusetts, we had a won- derful Clegg family reunion in Virginia— 90 of our 105 family members traveled in from California, Texas, the Midwest, the Northeast, and even France (my son Tom and his wife, Colette).

Earlier we attended the Navy- Indiana football game at Annapolis, where our granddaughter is in her third year. Tailgating and cheering with 14 members of our family was such fun, and Navy won by one point in the last minute of the game!
