Corinne Edwards Shulman
Aloha Folksies! Reporting in from the islands; all’s well in Paradise. Apparently, out of 150 names on my class list, 70 alums are alive and well and have been contacted by email or postcard. It may have been too close to deadline for most of you, unfortunately. Ann Barnum Connellee gives tours at the Sea Turtle Hospital in South Carolina and is still playing golf. The marriage of Ann’s first grandchild in North Carolina was the occasion for a gathering of the Connellee clan last August. Janet Beck Agnew now lives with her daughter Kerry, in Ohio. Ging reports good health, not much energy. Same here, old friend! Patty Callender Hewit had just returned from a round trip Atlantic Ocean cruise on the Queen Mary 2……”fantastic ship, something going on every moment. Best of all, I learned while cruising by email that my 11th great grandchild had been born!” Marcia Gurwitt Wofsey and husband Bob have been living in a senior residence for three years, in Port Chester, New York. “We miss our garden but have many new friends and the days are filled with many activities; still fondly remember our days at Hood”. And our ‘White Blazer’ gal, Katherine Maguire Rafferty writes from Denver: “Our only travels are a yearly trip to visit our oldest daughter and her husband in Paso Robles. We have no grandchildren, alas. Classmates I have kept in touch with are Dixie in Maryland, Jonesy in Massachusetts, and Louise in Delaware. Sorry to hear Doris Reininger DeHart died last year. We are all getting pretty old, however!” Charlotte Montrasell Meier’s daughter, Elizabeth Schmitt, responded that her mother was now living in Flemington, New Jersey….”doing very well, but unable to access email, as her computer is misbehaving”. Her address is 19 Moore Drive, 08822. Corinne Edwards Shulman As for me, I am blessed to have my daughter, Kim, and her son, Arion, taking over managing my home here. Arion has been with me since Nat became handicapped in 2004 (Nat died in 2009); Kim moved back from Boulder in 2011. No more travels for me since my heart attack in 2010. I just treated myself to a ‘Floataway’…a personal tank to float in, good for bad backs! I still go to the ocean when it’s friendly…the best therapy of all. All for now; would love to hear from my old classmates; please drop a line or email me.
