Sally Hamilton Bundy
had a knee replaced last August but is now healthy and keeping busy. She volunteers at an elementary school a few hours a week, exercises and makes quilts. She feels fortunate to have so many of her family living near her, although her youngest grandson is on a two year church mission in the Philippines. Sally has 15 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren. Ginny Turnbull Hecklinger, P’81, G’08 shared lots of news. She reported that Sue Peters Wirths, M.A.’79, G’13 is doing well. Sandy Newing lives nearby and they get together often. Ginny is on campus often and enjoyed taking part in some of the events for Dr. Volpe’s retirement. She ran into Mera Braungart Coblentz at the Hood Library. Ginny, Sue and Sandy went to Harper’s Ferry for lunch with Carol Oswald Carter, P’80, P’85. Carol and husband Powell are doing well. Ginny reminds us that we have our reunion next year and hopes many of us can get back to Hood, see how well things are going and meet Andrea Chapdelaine, the new president. Sydney Kahn Hamburger, H’93 is now living in South New Jersey on a blueberry farm. Her children all live in New Jersey and have families of their own. She has been a sculptor for the over 50 years. I received a long note from Judy Kreider LeRoy. After graduation, she received a master’s degree in Zoology and taught biology in Linden Hall in Lititz, Pa. Judy moved to Palmyra, Pa., when she and Bill got married. She has three children and four grandchildren. She has worked for a local florist, swims at the Y and plays a lot of bridge. I, Muriel Chait Durbin, P’81, still work as a travel consultant and love to travel. I feel fortunate to be healthy and try to make time to exercise. My third grandchild will be graduating from college soon and the youngest is finishing her first year. I hope the next issue will have more of our class news.
