Sandy Berk Jacoby and Richard’s family includes three sons (two of whom are married), a long-awaited and “precious” granddaughter, and a mom about to turn 100! Sandy looks forward to our 50th in 2016. Artist Diane Burko quips that she became “bipolar” in 2013. She was invit- ed on a sailing residency on a vessel with 26 other artists traveling to Swalbard, just below the Arctic Circle, and she also trav- eled to Antarctica. She has two solo shows: Glacial Perspectives at the Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University and Seeing Glacial Time: Climate Change in the Arctic at Tufts University.

We extend condolences to Marjorie, whose husband, Richard, died of a heart attack earlier this year after a bat- tle with complications from diabetes. You can find photographs by Carolyn

Kathleen joined the Peace Corps after graduating and later became a teacher, retiring from CUNY’s Medgar Evers College; she was an advocate for peace and justice and a dedicated humanitarian.

We moved to Boston in 2013, then actu- alized a lifelong dream of owning a sail- boat, which we purchased in Rochester, N.Y. We’ve sailed LoDolce Vita through the locks of Lake Erie and down the Hudson River, through the Long Island Sound and Cape Cod Canal to reach Boston. ANN C.

When the company she worked for was sold in 2012, corporate communications specialist Sandy Colony followed a long-held dream and opened her own travel planning business. Personalized Odysseys specializes in the kind of trips the NYC native had planned for herself and friends over the years: small-group expeditions to remote regions, catering to baby boomers, espe- cially women. This year Sandy’s company led tours to Namibia, Nepal (which Mary Whitaker Taber joined), and Vancouver Island; trips toEthiopia, Papua New Guinea, and Turkey are being planned for 2015. Sandy’s second-career venture was recently featured in the New York Times. Peggy Baker Rennels and Susie


Merrick Bacon took a spectacular trip to Bryce and Zion national parks. Pam Scharmann Stewart and husband Douglas enjoy gardening and have gone on a number of cruises. The couple had a great week at Sebago Lake in Maine with their children and grandchildren this summer. Pam studies bluegrass banjo, directs a 10-voice early-music group, cooks, and reads.

Marion Thomas Manning and Jim moved from Indiana to their home out- side Sedona, Ariz., which will now be their full-time residence. They love the scenery, hiking, great weather, and friend- ly people. All four of their grandchildren live east of the Mississippi, so the

Mannings have become frequent flyers. Rita Camera Johnson and Win love their daughter Amy’s baby, Neve. They introduced her to Earline Furber Rubel and Ed in Florida this winter. My daughter, Linden, son-in-law Bryan, and I traveled to Chile to visit Bryan’s parents, who live there a few months of the year. I had never been to South America, and found it beautiful and inter- esting. LORRAINE RORKE BADER 146 SHRADER ST. SAN FRANCISCO, CA 94117-1017 415-902-6134 LORRAINE.BADER@GMAIL.COM

Diana Atwood Johnson suffered from a mysterious, life-threatening lung illness last winter. She recovered enough to accept an honorary doctorate of humane letters from the University of New Haven in Connecticut and a community service award. “Life is good and forever challeng- ing,” she muses. Nursing major Carol Feiker Wetherbee runs her own home-care business, GG Geriatric Care Management, which pro- vides comprehensive health care services to the elderly; see Linda Pizzica Garrettson entered the sprint portion of the Captain Morgan Ironman Triathlon in St. Croix on May 4.

Ellen Sherman’s son is a sophomore at Colgate. Ellen served as a judge for Skidmore’s Freirich Business Plan Competition last winter. Barbara Roberts Magid sends a correc- tion: She retired as the director of profes- sional services at Sheppard Pratt Health System in Baltimore, not the director of the entire organization. We wish her well in retirement. Judith Erickson was appointed dean of Harriet Rothkopf Heilbrunn School of Nursing at Long Island University earlier this year. She was formerly dean of the School of Nursing at Jacksonville University in Florida, where she helped launch its College of Health Sciences and establish a doctor of nursing practice
