From the “frigid north” {Edmonton, Canada}Vivian Steven Varvis reported that they had finally gotten over the winter snows and now struggle at golf to make the pars. She also commented that “we now meet friends more frequently at funerals and ‘celebrations of life’ which we all probably find true. She now has one grandchild. She sends best wishes to our classmates. Cathy Strachan Upp has moved to a Life Care Facility in Tucson and enjoys all the exercise classes and activities. She is having fun with three great-grand daughters. She has talked with Marilyn “Tink” Smith Garrity and Barbara Allen Prall. Mary Louise Hoffman Huff is surely in better shape than most of us as she bench-pressed 115 pounds last week–which was her record also. Still she “continues with meetings, lunches, non-profit galas, etc.” and is now starting the process of cleaning out many years of accumulations. Donna Fogle Fisher is doing more reading than walking because of an arthritic knee. There’s always the unhappy news, this time from Mary Lou Henry Deisroth who reported on the passing of her husband Tony and Herman, husband of Peggy Friedkin Schriefer. Our sympathy to both of them. I’m afraid that we are all a little less active than we have been in the past but we still look forward to hearing from more of you. Walt and I have not been able to make definite plans for the summer yet or as I tell him “take each day as it comes” but we do hope to be able to fly to New England at some time. -Eleanore Jackson Knott
