Greetings to the class of 1988! I hope this finds everyone well. Please feel free to forward me any news and updates to the above email addresses. For those of you on Facebook you can send me updates that way also, I love keeping up with many of you there! I am finally building my email distribution list and I apologize for any confusion about submitting updates to me. Please continue to send them to me throughout the year and I will include it in the next issue. Tonya Anderson Crawley received her master’s degree in special education from the Univ. of Colorado at Colorado Springs and is teaching 8th grade in Colorado Springs, where she lives with her husband and two children.
Catherine Hemphill wrote that she somewhat eloped with her next door neighbor, Tim Naugle, this past February on a beach in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., which was attended by only a few friends. They followed up this beautiful wedding with a seven-day honeymoon cruise to St. Maarten, St. Thomas and Grand Turk. They are currently living in her house on Norva Avenue in Frederick, so no moving van was necessary for the big move. She also celebrated 20 years of employment with Wells Fargo in June 2012.
Jane Halfen Caputo is busy working in the family business in New Jersey, and her husband Jim is with UPS. Their son is currently a freshman at Virginia Tech with a major in engineering; their daughter Jullian is a freshman in high school. Anita Christie and husband Buz are parents to sons Sean, 15, and Aidan, 12. She currently works full time with adults with intellectual disabilities and is also a part-time consultant with Tastefully Simple.
Heidi Jones McKeon lives north of Seattle, Wash., with her husband John. They are parents to son John, 21, who works with his dad in their own financial planning business. Heidi said that she is “retired” from retail work but is a full-time search and rescue volunteer and a full-time beagle breeder, exhibiter, groomer and rescuer of cats! Jean Rhodes-Moen has been busy with daughters Kaja, 19, and Thea, 12 almost 13! Currently in Ashville, N.C., she is busy as a jewelry artist, specializing in silver filigree, a traditional Norwegian technique she learned from her late husband Bjorn.
Charlotte Volatile-Goebel is mom to twin 14 year olds, a boy and a girl, as well as an 8-year-old girl. She currently resides in Florida and is a consultant with Mary Kay Cosmetics. I continue to live and work in Williamsburg, Va., as a second grade teacher and adjunct faculty member for The College of William and Mary. My daughter Mackenzie just recently received her learner’s permit, so I have acquired a few more gray hairs! She also has started playing junior varsity basketball for her high school, and that keeps us busy along with drumming for the Colonial Williamsburg Fifes and Drums. The family, along with my husband Roman, keeps busy with a lot of traveling (when time permits) to family in Delaware and Massachusetts.
