tember. She so enjoyed our class reunions. Also, Gretchen Haller Holtz ’64 sent word that her sister Nancy Haller Cham - berlain, who was in Skidmore’s nursing program, died in April. She said, “Nancy’s lifelong interests and loves were her fam - ily, her patients, and her many flowers. She is missed by her family and many friends.” The class sends condolences to both families.

Helen Briwa looks forward to Reunion. Betsy Singer Gluck hopes that many classmates have marked their calendar for our 60th. Susan Wickware Moyer writes, “My grandson Jeff Conover coached the Olym - pic beach-volleyball team that won the silver medal in London! It was his first time at the Olympics, which was quite a feat. I am so proud of him.” Joan Lacey Hansen and husband moved to Dallas, TX, from Indianapolis, IN, in 1963. One grandchild is getting a master’s and PhD from UT–Austin, and another is a sophomore at the University of Oklahoma; their father is the Hansens’ son David, who lives in TX. The other children are Debbie, a coach and teacher, and Richard, who builds homes in Colo - rado, where the Hansens spend six months every year. Mibs Wade Menk has offered to take

in 2008. Although lonely, she still winters in Florida, where she plays golf, and goes back to New Jersey as it warms up. She plays lots of bridge, which she enjoys more and more. She hopes to see many of us at Reunion. Natalie Jones Neri attended graduations of her grandchildren, including Kate ’11. Tillie’s mother was also Skidmore grad, from the class of 1921. Barbara Smith Olney—music major, mother of four, classmate for our first two years—lives in Sacramento, CA. She’d love to hear from classmates at Barbtones@ yahoo.com. Carol Feuerman Gertz reports that hus-


band Jerry died in July, four days before his 89th birthday and after 48 years of marriage. Carol says, “Up till then we’d been dividing our time between NYC (and all the wonderful theater, concerts, museums) and our summer home in Westhampton Beach. I am still playing tennis all year and have been sculpting for many years—not to sell or show, just for my own pleasure. This past August marked 20 years since our daughter Alison passed away.”

A mostly full-time painter, she has a huge studio overlooking the Rockies and downtown Denver. She’s having fun working on a small old house (c. 1928) that she recently bought.

Sue Davis Tull and Bill and had a nice visit with Mary Grindley Shepard this past summer at the Shepards’ home in New Hampshire. Sue says, “We chatted

over a yummy lunch, got caught up on our respective lives, then returned to our daughter’s abode in Sterling, MA. Grin is just the same, with her bubbly laugh, and Jack, the Marine, is doing well with all he has endured.” Sue also had lunch with Joan Gray Knauss Kittredge recently and reports that “age has not affected her one iota; she’s still gorgeous!” In late summer the Tulls took a cruise to Norway, “stop- ping at little fishing villages as we sailed in and out of the fjords…a great trip!” In Maryland, Sue is involved with her church and the Ivymount School for de - velopmentally delayed and autistic chil- dren and young adults. Sallie Neuweiler Henrie reminds class- mates to support Skidmore’s Annual Fund. She says, “Our class may never be able to compete in the ‘who gives the most money’ department, but we have always done a super job in the participa- tion department. In 2010 we ranked eighth in class participation, and in 2011 we had the fourth-highest level!” In NYC Pat Kennedy Snyderman was without power and water for several days after Superstorm Sandy washed through. Her children “made” her go stay with her cousin elsewhere in the city. She went to the gym to exercise and shower, “along with most of NYC…but it worked,” she says, and “all is OK here.” The class extends sympathy to Patty Piper Perry-Adams on the death of her husband, Josiah, who had attended nu - merous Skidmore reunions. Nancy Burley Chase visited Patty at her home in Maine after spending last winter in Hawaii, and also saw Grace Martin Sheldon, who was visiting her brother in Massachusetts.
