1977: Winter 2014

Posted by

Ann Kowitski Barber sends news from New Hampshire: My big sis, Beth Sheppard Kline’s daughter,  Kirsten married Tarcisio Ferreria on August 23rd on Cape Cod and I had the honor of officiating! It was a perfect day in every way! Who could have predicted that 40 years ago? After, I spent the week on the Cape and had a great week with my sister, Carol. Two weeks later, I spent 3 days at National Harbor on the Potomac.  Had 2 great days in DC sightseeing and spent the third with Kelly Walfred Miller. We had a great day of catching up on everything!  I had gone down to accompany Elizabeth on her drive home after her 10 weeks at GWU Hospital where she did a rotation for her DPT program. She loved DC life and had a great experience at the hospital. Graduation will be May 2014.

Denise Swan Isacson sent a quick update:  The Isacsons can be found outside Savannah in Richmond Hill, GA:  Denise just completed 35 years at Delta; Örjan continues to work at Georgia Tech’s Enterprise Innovation Institute; Liv is a senior at Campbell University just south of Raleigh, NC.  Not sure where we’ll be once she graduates – might be time for a change!

Greg and Kas (Kluth) Rohm are celebrating our older daughter’s first wedding anniversary (where does the time go!). Other daughter is civil engineer up in NYC where her “rents” love to visit and see the sights.  In between Greg’s multiple business trips during the week, they’re enjoying spending time in Fenwick Island on the weekends where the land is level and perfect for bike riding.   Kas is still working for the school system in Baltimore County for a few more years…then who knows!

Wendy Gahm says her family has had some busy times! Daughter Natalie (class of ’07) continues to pursue her degree in Entomology at OSU, working hard as always! Son Joshua came home in August to marry his bride Megan and drive back to Tucson and enjoy life together! Daughter Stephanie made me a grandma on October 15th, giving birth to Lily Angela Gardner! My hubby Steve, and I are enjoying our Food Truck business’s second year, and I continue working hourly with CCPS! Fun times! Hope everyone else is doing well!

The Comer family is spread out again!  Margaret is pursuing a Masters Degree at Jesus College, Cambridge, Jacob is tutoring the SAT and interning at Living Classrooms, Anne is singing and acting her way through high school at the Baltimore School for the Arts.  I visited Hood last Sunday and it looks wonderful…lots of activity and amazing students!  The class of 1977 is also amazing and I know you have lots of exciting news to share….send it over anytime!  My email is ecomer@eacarchaeology.com
