Margaret Lindsay Doyle attended State University of New York PolyTech graduation in Albany, NY in May. As Maggie was leaving, she passed a woman with her PhD robe. She was speaking to someone and Maggie overheard her saying, “Well, I got my undergraduate degree from Hood College!” Maggie immediately whipped around and said, “You are kidding! I graduated from Hood College. What year?” She replied,”1988, it was still all women!” Maggie smiled and said, “Hood Class of 76!” Small world! Jane Olsen M.A. ’78 writes: “If anyone paid attention to the In Memoriam section of the Hood Magazine last issue, they will know that Judith Howe passed away 12/31/2016. What some may not have known was that Judy & I were together for 42 years and legally married for three. Judy was too ill for us to attend our 40th reunion. I’m adjusting to her passing.” Our classmates send our deepest sympathy to you, Jane. Lois Vandermark Moore’s father Robert Vandermark, Sr. passed away on February 4, 2017. We send our deepest sympathy and love to Lois and her family. Barbara Woolmington writes: Last time I reported we retired and were moving to Asheville NC… well we have arrived and settled into a rental home in a small suburb in West Asheville. We are enjoying the wonderful restaurants, beautiful hiking trails and new friends. Everyone is very friendly and many come from somewhere else, so they know what it is like to be new in the neighborhood. I have joined a book group and the local athletic club to keep my body and mind in shape. Craig went on Medicare last month and is pleased so far with the good service he is getting. I hope I don’t have many medical needs for the next two years until my Medicare time arrives. Larry and I had a wonderful trip to San Antonio in April. We enjoyed the Riverwalk, Market Square, the Alamo and the Missions. So much to do in that beautiful city! We are looking forward to our annual beach trip to OBX with our kids and grandkids in June.
