2010 Class Notes

2010 Class Notes


Our youngest, Tom, produced our 8 lb grandson two weeks ago. BUMPO (CAROLYN MARSH) hosted a summer picnic at her Vermont farm where many of Sycamores friends reuined for an afternoon.


Retired to a small ranch just south of Livingston, MT in 2004, much easier for my husband Bliss who copes with Parkinson’s disease. We love the Beartooth Absaroka (spell?) Mountains nearby and are on the Yellowstone River and Mill Creek. God’s Country!

I’ve been retired from being Chief of Cardiology at Stamford Hospital, (affiliated with Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center), and Professor of Clinical Medicine at Columbia for seven years. We love visits from our eight children and 15 grandchildren – they are a joy!! Also love visits from friends.


Amazing summer! David and I celebrated with a grand party in June. In August I visited China with daughter, Katie, and her four and seven year old children. We joined Dad who was already there and lived in an apartment in Shanghai. We also visited Beijing and Hangzhou. It was exhausting and completely amazing.


Jason and I were happy to see ANN R. THOMPSON (THOMPS) and her grandson, Jonas, 16, at our summer camp on Lake Champlain in August. Jonas enjoyed water sports and cousins in Charlotte, Vermont after working at an international interior design business in D.C.


Four of us from the Class of 1958 are having a great time on the Board of the wonderful MHC ART MUSEUM. Sondra CastileCAROLYN TOPORHARRIET WEISSMAN and I see each other two or three times a year when we meet to work for the good of the museum.


This past summer I took a trip to Wales offered by Smith, but opened to Mount Holyoke graduates. Wales is beautiful with mountains in the north and rolling hills in the south. I especially loved the pastures with their various greens, one an almost luminescent yellow/green. We walked up and down, (little of Wales is flat), and saw many huge stone castles, museums, sheep, sweet little towns and gradens.


New grandchild (Luca) doing very well after scary period in the hospital. Still workingas a psychotherapist three days a week and husband, Tim, is semi-retired; neither of us quite ready to take the plunge into retirement.


All our children and grands were in Nantucket at one time or another summer of ’09. After they left I proceeded to break a bunch of ribs falling down outside stairs in pouring rain. Fine and dandy now, pursuing hort and sustainable stuff. First granddaughter to graduate U of PA in May, 2010!


My husband, Jim, and I recently learned that we have received the 2010 Ohio Patron of the Arts award from the Governor, Ted Strickland.

Jim has been president of WDPR, an all classical music radio station in Dayton, as well as a board member of Dayton Public TV and the Human Race Theatre Company, a Dayton professional repertory company.

We have sponsored numerous musical and theatrical performances and are thrilled by this recognition for doing what we love.

I met Mary Jane Trapp, 1978, who is currently an Appeals Court Judge in NE Ohio and is a candidate for the Ohio Supreme Court. We shared memories of Professor Vicki Schuck.
