My 90th birthday was celebrated with an unusual present.: my two daughters, Hazel and Paula, arranged for an organ recital in our concert hall. They invited all my fellow residents in Elim Park to enjoy it with our family. It was the perfect gift for this music lover.

touch with Evelyn Burns Stewart ’48. I recently spoke to Grace’s roommate, Jane “Blackie” Drisko Shaw, who moved to Pennsylvania. Blackie and I had a nice long chat; she sounded great. Ruth Schleicher Kroon enjoys life on Cape Cod in Yarmouth, Mass. I chair the Partners Eclectic golf tourna- ment here in Encinitas, Calif. This past spring, I was playing bingo at our Elks Lodge in Encinitas, and when they called G47, I won $120. Needless to say, no one else realized that my lucky number is 47 because of Skidmore.

Joan Theobald Mitchell sent an e-mail with “no exciting news” but added that it’s hard to believe how the years have flown by and how times have really changed.


Helen Marriott O’Brien and husband Bill live in the New Jersey Veterans Memorial Home at Menlo Park. In her long battle with Alzheimer’s, Helen is managing as best she can. Gloria D’Aiello Wehle held a tri-genera- tional art show with daughter Deborah Wall ’75 and granddaughter Abigail Wilcox in Madison, Conn., this past spring. Both working artists, mother and daughter studied in Skidmore’s art depart- ment.


Sue Strauss Kraus spent a happy week- end in Savannah, Georgia, with her daughter, Ginger, and then went on to NYC to visit “adorable” great-grandson Silas, 1. I was supposed to meet Sue, Leila Goldstein Garlock, and Billie Stein Tisch for lunch, but my left knee made that impossible. So Sue and Lee had lunch at the latter’s home, which Sue had deco- rated 27 years ago. “Everything looked so beautiful,” Sue says. GRETCHEN EISNER RACHLIN 115 RAYMOND AVE.

panied by her daughter; Katherine “Tinka” Morse Pincas, by hubby Mitchell; and I by my good friend Mabel. Beverly Bernardt Jarrett had planned to take the bus to Saratoga but was too late in deciding. Tinka is staying on as class president, and I continue as secretary. We will be back in 2019, God willing! Marjorie Fee Neff intended to come to Reunion with her daughter, but as hus- band Charlie is on special oxygen 24/7, she decided against it. Marge now has three great-grands. When Nancy Dubey French and Bill retired, they left the East Coast and head- ed to Santa Fe, N.M., where they lived for 20 “wonderful” years. In 2012, they

Marjorie Neff misses her roommate, Doris Higgons Popenoe. Marge observes, “Doris was a wonderful artist all her life. As a student, she did wonderful cartoons and portrait paintings. I cherish an oil painting she did of the Saratoga Battlefield in the fall that still hangs in my house. I was with her when she paint- ed it.”


Adelaide Hodgman Marx stays busy with bridge, a women’s club, volunteering for a local rehab center, and dog walking. She spent the summer at her cabin in the Massachusetts Berkshires enjoying sun, swimming, and visits from friends. Edith Lange Smith has finally moved from her home of 53 years to a senior retirement community in Littleton, Colo. While I was in Saratoga for Reunion, I saw my great-grandson, who lives there with his mother and grandparents. I had- n’t seen the 3-year-old in over a year. I have five great-grands scattered from the East Coast to California. EDITH ARMEND HOLTERMANN 319 CLARKE AVE. STATEN ISLAND, NY 10306-1127 HOLTERGLAS@AOL.COM

reminiscing about the snowball fights outside Libby House in ’46 and ’47. Last fall she happily sported Skidmore’s colors while representing the College at the inauguration of Dickinson College’s new president. A longtime class agent, she has loved watching Skidmore evolve over the years. Mary Dickinson Furth is doing well except for poor eyesight. This fall she traveled to Portugal, “a beautiful coun- try.”
