1984: Winter 2014

Posted by

Greetings class of 1984!  Christine Garvey Lentine is pleased to report that her daughter Alicia graduated from The Catholic Univ. of America in Washington, D.C. this past May with a degree in politics. What makes Christine happier is that Alicia is employed! Son Michael is a sophomore at Rider Univ. in New Jersey majoring in business. Christine and her husband Neil have spent the past year transitioning from New Jersey where they have each lived for the past 51 years to Naples, Fla. In January, Florida will be their full time home, but they are sure to still be spotted in New Jersey and at their home in Tilghman Island, Md. If you are in southwest Florida, do not hesitate to give Christine a call! Amy Gilson Corbin ended up getting a degree in studio arts and has exhibited pieces at the House of Senate in Annapolis, Art at the Mill in Berryville, Va., and Hood College. Amy has two sons and was the former marketing director for Chick-Fil-A for eight years. She is currently working at American Public University System (American Military University and American Public University) where she has the flexibility to work remotely and looks forward to relocating near blue water when her youngest son graduates this coming year. Edie Orazi started a new job this past July. She is working as a federal contractor as a program manager/lead catalog librarian at the Smithsonian Institution libraries.  Congratulations, Edie! Sue Bartolotto reported from Woodbridge, Va., that her husband has retired after 30 years of service with the U.S. Army. He is currently searching for a job in the Rochester, N.Y. area where they hope to relocate. Daughter Sarah is working in New Jersey and living in Pennsylvania. Daughter Emily is a sophomore at Hood, daughter Hannah is in her junior year of high school and son John is in sixth grade. Sue continues to substitute teach in her county school system and church school. Quick recovery wishes go out to Sue as well and she recovers from ACL reconstruction knee surgery which was a result of playing in the Hood alumni field hockey game in April. Sue had a great time even though she was the oldest one participating! Robin Winkler-Pickett is still working full-time at the National Cancer Institute.  Robin is also back at Hood working on another graduate degree in the master of business administration program. When she is finished this current degree she will have three degrees and four majors from Hood!  Robin’s eldest son Eric just re-enlisted in the U.S. Marines and was married a year ago to Val who is a Frederick County Public School art teacher. Son Adam anticipates graduating from high school in May 2014. Heidi von Storch Miner and husband Randy will soon be celebrating 15 years of marriage. She is proud to be mom to three fine young men who are working and each doing what they love. Son Sean lives in California and is engaged to be married. He works for Environmental Lights in the shipping department.  Stepson Craig is also engaged and lives in Chicago where he works at Third Coast Guitars repairing and building guitars. Heidi’s youngest stepson Drew lives in Colorado and works at Vail Ski resort and for a towing company. Heidi is enjoying making handmade crafts in her free time. A few other tidbits of information have come my way.  Karen Curtis Craney reports that for the past 30 years she has been living in Frederick and working for the Frederick County Public School System as a teacher and Literacy specialist. Claudia Nealley is enjoying being back to work at a local Montessori school as a teacher’s assistant. Lynn Davis is still working full time for the Clearwater Florida police department as the property and evidence supervisor and just returned from a cruise in September that went from Denmark to New York.  Jeanne Thomson Dinterman is still working at Meritus Medical Center in clinical microbiology. Husband John owns USave Car and Truck rental in Frederick. Son Andrew is an elementary school gym teacher in the Frederick County School System.  Son Aaron is a college junior who is playing basketball and son Kyle is a freshman in college. Sue MacKenzie reported in from Vienna, Va., where she is doing contract interior design work. Sue’s daughter is a junior at Denison Univ. in Ohio and planned to leave for New Zealand in January to study abroad. It was great hearing from so many of you––I hope to see everyone at our 30th reunion in May 2014! Make your plans now!
