With thanks to my ‘74 alum daughter and chauffeur Maleen (Marieileen Murphy Cunning) I was able to attend the Class of ‘41 – 70th anniversary alumnae weekend at SHU…Friday evening June Boyle Elliott Ahmuty and her husband also were in attendance for the President’s dinner. It was a de- lightful occasion. June is well…On Saturday, Mary Cay Kalman Griglak and her daughter were present for the brunch and business meeting. Later according to schedule, we held our class business meeting. Our ‘business’ was a non- agenda filled with the pleasantries of looking at ‘41 memorabilia and trying to identify classmates whose pictures were taken dur- ing our years of study on the Hill. Memories were shared Mary Cay and her daugh- ter especially enjoyed the afternoon entertainment (bag- pipers) but then it was necessary for her to return home. The Distinguished Alum Award ceremony was presided over by President Boyle. The program was excellently presented to honor the women selected for outstanding achievements in their particular fields of professionalism. What a terrific group of super achievers!…Our classmate, Clare Theresa Harwood was among those chosen but her death about two weeks prior to the weekend necessitated the award be pre- sented posthumously. It is good she knew she had been se- lected for the honor. What magnificent accomplishments her lifetime afforded her church community! She undoubt- edly will be greatly missed in D.C…Edith Henry Dolence went to the funeral home to pay respects to Clare. Edith also reports she has nieces and nephews who keep tabs on her and after forty years lives in the same neighborhood which she loves. Saturday evening dinner, Sunday Mass and brunch are always memorable events; unfortunately ‘41 had only this single representative who gave no report. However I hasten to tell you now that overall the weekend was super – very well planned, organized and presented. We even had shuttle service to transport us around campus, which, by the way, has changed and grown so much from our col- lege days. Our rooms in DeChantal Hall were top notch! Congrats to the alum office staff, their assistants and yes, that includes the dietary department. It was a super week- end, one of the best. Dr. Boyle is at the helm of a great insti- tution and we are privileged to refer to it as our Alma Mater. My only regret about the weekend is that the Class of ‘41 was not highly visible but I’m sure there was just cause on the part of our absentees. I surmise our ‘golden years’ are really not quite so golden. Best wishes to all you ‘41ers and may God bless those who will read this column. Please do keep in touch with the Alum Office at Seton Hill, now they seem to have a new slogan…I kept hearing and read- ing ‘THIS WAY UP’ – Let’s stay with them up and on the Hill!

(603) 323-8630, 17 Old Mail Rd., Tamworth, NH 03886 Thank you to the classmates who were able to send news in for this issue of the Alumnae News…Rosemary Emmerling Marsolais wrote that the highlight of the year for her was tak- ing a cruise with her family – consisting of her daughters and their husbands, her brother and his wife, and her sister – through the Baltic countries. The weather was great and they toured 5 beautiful cities. She ended her letter with (and I do so agree!): “Would you ever have dreamed we would make it to our 90s?”…I talked with Marie Scholl Wareing in South Carolina and she too is amazed we are still around in our 90s. Her daughter Beth (one of her 8 children) takes good care of her. After a head count by Beth and Marie, it was determined that Marie now has 28 great grandchildren!…Sue Marron Shirley writes that she had cataract surgery in one eye and will have the other eye done later in July. Her daughter, Diane lives with her and takes very good care of her. Her grandson, Nicholas, is doing an internship at an acoustic company in New Rochelle, NY this summer. The family all went to a cookout at her daughter Char- lene’s home in Pittsford, NY for the 4th of July… Ann Frances Hall Marshall wrote to say her first novel “Crooked Lines” was a best seller on Amazon for several weeks and now will be formatted for Kindle. Her second novel has been re-titled to “Full Measure of Love” and will be published in the Fall. She was 90 in June and had a big family celebra- tion. She says her health is good but wishes she could be speedier. I know exactly what she means! Speed and agility have faded away…Guido Filicetti sent a note about his wife Grace Riggie Filiceti about her past ac- tivities. She played a good game of bridge, was a member of Kappa Kappa Pi, attended University of Buffalo and became a social worker…It was with great sadness we read in the Spring 2011 edition of alumna news that Toni Ditta Sawich had died in January. She was another of my roommates (there were 8 in our dorm 504) We send our condolences to her family on their loss…As for me, Jean Meagher Ulitz, I celebrated my 89th birthday on Sanibel Island, Florida with my 3 children and their spouses plus two grandchildren. We rented two beachside condos and had a terrific sunny week of biking, swimming, parasailing, boat cruising, shelling, and walking the beautiful sandy beaches. My youngest grand- child, Melissa Frase has recovered very well from her ACL operation. She will attend New Hampton Prep in the Fall as a post graduate and will play basketball. She is still hopeful of a full basketball scholarship for the following year at a Division I or II College. (Of course I always hoped it would be SHC.) My grandson, Bill Cook, and wife Lorna had a beautiful baby girl Zoe (My second great grandchild) whom I will get to see and hold and love at our annual family re- union in August…I called Bunny (Mary Wurtz) McBride and she told me she hadn’t written because she hadn’t done anything exciting. In her typically humorous fashion, she said the most exciting event in her life was the gift of an ice orchid – 3 ice cubes a day and it was flourishing before her eyes with 3 beautiful flowers! Stay healthy my dear class- mates and please send me news of you and your families.

Joan Smith Lamorte writes, Greetings from North Carolina where I have been for 36 years now. It was great to talk to so many of you; and if ever asked, do be a news agent. It is wonderful getting in touch with old friends and class- mates! I’m presently house hunting and readying my house for showing. I’m involved in two church groups, two book clubs, a retirees’ group (from Duke), and enjoy regular lun- cheons with several friends. I have chosen to use just our Academy names because I think that’s how we best re- member one another. If this inspires you to get in touch with some long-lost friends just e-mail (eksads@aol.com) me or call (919-493-2311) and I’ll send you a copy of my Alumnae List…Mickey O’Connell practiced law on and off after grad school while taking care of her five children (her favorite job.) One of her daughters is involved with her late father’s insurance business. Ten grandchildren keep Mickey busy and life joyful…Frankie Canole reports that she and her husband enjoy a quiet life centering around activities with their children and grandchildren…Peggy Ehalt asks to be remembered to everyone if anybody remembers her! Who could forget our little (and that’s literal) bell ringer with the big smile. She worked for an architectural firm as a secre- tary and then studied interior design and worked as a de- signer for the firm. She and her husband have a blended family of seven with eight grandchildren and one great- grandchild and have been married for 46 years…Libby Lozaw and I had a great chat reminiscing about our fathers who were friends. Of her three children her son is an attor- ney in Chicago and one of her daughters has four children. She does a lot of volunteering and enjoys a weekly break- fast gathering with church friends after a novena mass. Her home of fifty years is in an idyllic neighborhood with all the familiar landmarks still intact and which she loves…Sadly, Rosemary Masley and Mary D. Roitz have been reported as deceased. Virginia Janse Rovzar reported her husband of
60 odd years died two years ago. She said,”too old for golf – so I spend my time with the computer and have a Kindle that I love.”

My first priority is to express appreciation to Mary Jo and Ruth for the years in which they have sought and summarized the increasingly limited “tidbits” submitted by classmates. Well done and thank you!…In May, I telephoned 6 to 8 class- mates asking each to contact a few others for “news items” by early July for September publication. I enjoyed the phone visits and will share…Mary Jo McAteer Cadigan, in her al- ways pleasant manner says she is functioning but unable to do as much as she would like and doubts she will be able to attend our 65th reunion…Gloria Fanelli Kenny has been limit- ed by frequent episodes of vertigo for some time.

She remains in her home which her daughter now shares with her…Mildred “Putsy” Naser Far- ley is well and active; she spent the summer of 2011 vacation- ing with her family at Deep Creek, MD. She has been unsuc- cessful in contacting Betty Rizi Perini but will continue to try… Mary Turgeon Rourke recently enjoyed a visit from her granddaughter and her roommate from grad school at Univer- sity of Virginia. She keeps busy serving as both a trustee and volunteer at a private library specializing in local history and genealogy, playing bridge with 2 groups, and water aero- bics… Now is the time to think about our 65th in June. Please come join us if you can or send us a note to be shared if you cannot. If you perhaps prefer to phone calls or letters do call me anytime to share news notes.

Highlight of the weekend: Rosemary Petrosky Mazero was honored as a Distinguished Alumna. Congratu- lations, Rosemary! Our residence was the relatively new De Chantal Hall, a super place for nightly gatherings to catch up, exchange news and reminisce. Challenges and obliga- tions at home prevented quite a few others from returning to the Hill, but they sent messages…Anne Quinn Burns Clar- izio, who enjoyed a superb three-day Carnival Cruise to Mexico with her family as an eightieth birthday treat, wrote about her grandsons (children of her son Richard Burns). Brennan received a four-year fellowship leading to the MS and PhD degrees at Stanford University and Keaton, a scholarship to the University of California to study astro- physics.

She has also traveled extensively, visiting Europe and going on cruises with her children just three years ago. Dorothy attributes her longevity to her faith and optimism.

Dorothy’s daughters, Patricia Fitzgerald Engel ’62 and Roberta Fitzgerald Grant ’64, are Seton Hill alumnae and her sisters, Betty and Eleanor, attended Seton Hill. Dorothy is pictured with her daughter Patricia. Martha Whelan Murphy, Mary Kalman Griglak

At our class meeting on June 4, attendees agreed that, on the occasion of Reunion 60, in addition to the annual mone- tary gifts to SHU, the class of 1951 would present a gift in memory of Sister Hildebert, our class advisor.

Cobblestones are not the best for creaky knees, but cruising on the Danube-Main-Rhine Rivers was delightful. Francesmary especially enjoyed the 68 locks and revisiting Cologne cathedral…Rita Romza Smochko ‘60, is trying to locate Elisa Sadaune who was married to her brother for five years until his untimely death. Can anyone help? Elisa has been out of touch for many years.

Her recovery was eased by each of her children’s coming one after the other to encourage her and keep her company… Mary Ann Kirby Werner is very contented with her peaceful quiet life in Virginia Beach… In July Virginia Claxon and Althea Farabaugh attended the dedication of the Dupre Science Center, connected with St. Vincent. Toni found the dedication impressive and the celebration afterwards “a good time.”…Pat Stefanik Remmell enjoyed a boat and land truck tour to Costa Rica and Panama in the winter and in August a sea voyage up the US East Coast from Boston, across to Iceland, Greenland, to the coast of England, to Amsterdam and back to Boston before flying home to California…Peggy Sterbutzel Browning, despite dialysis three times a week, had successful cataract surgery, still has red hair and talks a blue streak!

Her immune system disorder seems to be stabilized so she has time to keep up with the Coast Guard kid, the college twins, etc. etc. etc…Bonnie Engel Noble’s husband Harry has asked our classmates for prayers, letters, pictures, and more for Bonnie who, having survived breast and thyroid cancer, had surgery in March to remove a brain tumor.

Ann (AG) Ruhmann Wennhold’s annual newsletter was full of interesting info, especially of her travels. Her son, BJ is a pilot for ANA out of Tokyo. So Phil and AG took advantage of his apartment and spent a week there –three people in a bachelor, efficiency. A former New Yorker, she met her match with the Tokyo subways. These are sparkling clean; extremely compli- cated but very functional letting them visit many shrines and even a Kabuki matinee without getting lost. An old friend’s fami- ly wedding on Long Island brought Ann back to her roots, fol- lowed by grandsons Finn and Liam’s annual summer visit to Utah. Because of so much snow in 2010 and 2011 in both Utah and most of the northwest, Ann and the boys enjoyed not only great hiking but sledding and skiing well into the summer. Ann and Phil will be the proud parents at BJ and Vivian’s wedding on Maui this fall…Joan Truax Avioli answered my e-mail plea for news. She spent most of May attending five grandchildren’s graduations. Her granddaughter, Sienna Avioli Sears is a member of the SHU Class of 2015. Sienna is interested in a music and musical theater career and was most impressed with the new performing arts center…Delores Musarra Plunkett also answered my plea, but she e-mailed me from Morocco (a first for me). Though Del is the oldest, she has lost both her sib- lings, with her brother Dick dying in June. Her question “is it true only the good die young?”…I have heard from Connie Gritte Berto. She and Frank celebrated their 55th wedding an- niversary quietly, but with lots of champagne! (She does live near Napa). Connie had a second hip replacement. All went well and she is now out riding her Morgan horse on 50 mile en- durance rides. Her son Joseph is a helicopter pilot, fighting the wild fires in the southwest…Gini Carter Keeling wrote that she “finally got wired and my life has changed.” She can be reached at ginikeeling@yahoo.com…Audrey Petrarca Galosi sent me a note telling me that she is doing well… And Mary Lee Gannon Krieg had an extra special day in June when she got a phone call from Pat Herold Neel who now lives in Clovis, CA with her daughter. Pat has had Parkinson’s for probably close to 20 years but she still keeps going. True Seton Hill spirit!..Eleanor
Gettler Peckman and her husband are getting settled in their new apartment after her stroke and they’re delighted that they now live within 1 hour of one of their sons in MD and only 5 min- utes from another son and their 3 grandchildren in Ashburn. Eleanor’s new address is 21085 Cardinal Pond Terrace, Ashburn, VA 20147. Eleanor has been in touch with a few classmates and others have contacted her, so she’s pleased that the word is out about their new location…Joan Avioli and Eleanor were Seton Hill roommates. Eleanor mentioned, again, that her former stu- dent Nathan Hough ‘11 attended SHU and that she had the op- portunity to see him in two theatre productions in the new PAC.

This upset many alumni. Last August it was repainted in shades of red and looks stunning against the green grass on the rail- road side of Seton Hill Drive, about 100 feet from the front en- trance of Seton Hill University…Pat Robinson Loughran and her husband, Tom, celebrated 55 years of marriage. Her daugh- ter, Kathryn Loughran Cala 79, and her husband Greg will have two Setonians in the fall. Kevin will be a junior, majoring in hu- man resources and playing varsity Lacrosse. Megan will be a freshman in the LECOM program… Ginny Regan Finn is active at St. Gregory the Great Parish as a Lector, extraordinary minis- ter of the Eucharist, and an acolyte at funeral Masses as part of the parish Bereavement committee. She participates in the “Friends of Palestine” group in Milwaukee, a sub-group of Peace Action-Wisconsin.

Those of us at the Hill: Colleen McCann, Sara ‘Pat’ Radford Shea, Hester Shockey Hemminger, Marilyn Connor Cassels, Pat Gerberding, Gert Ward Lorenz, Grace Shiavone Person, Ginny Manna Martins, Sue Law Hawes and Anne Ruff Quirk our Distinguished Alum- na Awardee. Those of you who love the Hill would be excited to see just how lovely it still is. While there are more buildings (including a new recreation center that replaced Fr. Ryan’s house), a building across from Maura that houses the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine and quite a few dorms, the grounds are well and beautifully maintained. It is an oasis overlooking all of Greensburg! (PS – Troutman’s building is still there but with new occupants) The welcome we received by the staff and the fluidity with which things are done is such a contrast to our hurly-burly world. Dinner on Friday night, guests of JoAnne Boyle (as was the 50th class), was held of all places – Cecilian Hall. That place is no longer needed since we now have the Carol Ann Reichgut Concert Hall in the Per- forming Arts Center across from the train station. This building is a feat of architectural and engineering genius. You won’t find anything like it in the NYC theaters. Ginny Manna kept marveling at the concert hall (which can be reconfigured in any design by the way with moveable chairs). Pat Gerberding pointing the way for Gert Ward who is pushing Grace Shi- avone‘s wheelchair…We were housed in DeChantal Hall, the further most residence hall from Admin but shuttle busses ran all day until 10 at night for our convenience. There are three double rooms to a suite with a sitting area and bathroom, a full kitchen upstairs as well as two center all common sitting rooms with TV. It was air conditioned! The buffet breakfast (Sunday), brunch on Saturday, and the evening dinner were all held in Lowe Hall dining room. Remember how noisy it was when the place filled up with women’s voices? Hasn’t changed. Our banner was hanging as one of the brightest and biggest if not the best. It was a busy weekend on the Hill as JoAnne was away on Friday for a family event, flew back to attend the funeral of a sister who had just died and then was present for the rest of the weekend. You would recognize her instantly; the same smile, presence, and friendliness we all knew back in the 1950’s. But what she has done for SHC is amazing! They now have 2400 students with an incoming freshman class of 450. They have various institutes on the Hill and her move to have iPads and iMacs for every student is transforming the learning process as well as bringing national and international attention to the Hill. Our sweet gum tree, planted our junior year was promised at the time to grow quite tall and so it has, gracing the front of Sullivan Hall. Why they recommended planting it so close to the building I will never know. With 56 years of care it now towers over the building, if you can imagine. If you get a chance, ask Hester why she was in the cemetery at 10 pm when nobody could find her. Our re- union contributions percentage was 52% and a total of $15,730. Many thanks for your generosity – and don’t stop (-: Sadly, some of our classmates intended to come but health or personal reasons prevented them from doing so. Also, we weren’t the front runners either in amount or percentage giv- ing but we were up there with the front runners. Just know that you all were missed, but your spirit and enthusiasm was ever present during the entire weekend. Hoping for your good health and well being in the coming five years. Your perpetual president, Sue Law Hawes. …Additionally, Margaret O’Neil Reese reports “Mother of six, grandmother of ten. Still very busy with church, family, and home!”…Marilyn Komatz Mealy writes “Class of 56: It can’t be 55 years since we left the Hill – I’m not old enough! Walt and I are happily watching mile- stones as the younger generations move forward: wedding of oldest granddaughter; college graduate grandsons; Thanks- giving for 22 at someone else’s home; and AARP letters to our children.

She promises to spoil the little one rotten!…Grace Peters writes “I would like to express my thanks to Sue and Peg for all the work they did to make the re- union so much fun. Although I was unable to attend, every- thing I heard about it was wonderful. It was suggested at our class meeting that we put a notice with our will that the Hill be notified upon our passing. I have found it difficult when making my calls for classmate updates – shocked to hear from a stranger over the phone that a friend has passed. Let us con- tinue to pray for one another. God bless you and your families and remember me as always loving the Class of ‘56.

in. Annually we visit Destin, Florida and Niagara-on-the Lake in Canada for the Shaw Festival. We recommend the Shaw to anyone who enjoys plays by Shaw and his contemporaries – and the town is beautiful. We also visit Pat and Don Wentling each summer at their beach house in Stone Harbor, NJ. Pat tries to schedule us when their children and grandchildren are not there. Usually doesn’t work out that way; once there were 19 children/grandchildren visiting but we had even more fun with the crowd.”

mary.burgan@verizon.net, 1517 P St NW #1, Washington, DC
20005-1943 Pat Nussbaum Shoaf lives in Dublin, Ohio. She’s retired, hav- ing taught math and English at Belle Vernon Area High School for many years. She lost her husband in the early winter of 2011, and her daughters have been trying to make sure she’s OK, despite the fact that she can manage on her own. Pat has four children and seven grandchildren scattered across this country, and visiting them “keeps me busy.” She visited her daughter’s family in Van Nuys California in early summer, vis- iting another of her offspring in Pennsylvania in July. She writes, “I was in an airport between planes and a young man got off a plane with a SHU Griffin shirt. I stopped him and as it turned out he was a football player. It seems strange to think of the Hill coed.” Pat has been trying to find Paulette DeMeire. If anyone has her address or any news of her, please let Mary Alice know…Joan Laverty Murphy wrote, “As a retired special education coordinator, I volunteer as a
sped advocate for students under the care of the Dept. of So- cial Services. We continue to live in Acton, MA during the spring and summer months while spending winters in Engle- wood, FL. Our six grandchildren, ranging in age from three to nineteen, keep life interesting!”…Jean Sullivan French, Edith
C. Blum Professor Emerita of Art History, has retired, reluc- tantly, from teaching the history of Medieval and Renaissance Art at Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, NY. She has loved her teaching, and by all accounts her students have loved it as well. Jean almost single-handedly created the Art History department at Bard in 1971, and for a time she and one other colleague were its only faculty. Today the program has ten faculty members, and a host of courses and majors. Jean was celebrated by her department with a fine retire- ment party in the Spring of 2011; it is recorded in full color at
http://arthistory.bard.edu/?s=Jean+French Later in the day
she received the Bardian Award by President Leon Bot- stein…M.C McNerney Murray called from Bethesda, MD, to report that her husband has retired and they have moved into a condo. She has ten grandchildren between five and fifteen years old, and the age gap keeps her on her toes as a grand- mother…Barbara Hilt Murray writes “I am slowly dying of ex- cess heat here in Oklahoma. We have had at least 10 days of triple-digit temperatures. Thank goodness they were not all at once, but the in-between days were all in the high nineties! Fifteen minutes at a time is all the dog and I can stand at one time during the daytime. Walks are always at dusk and even then we are in the high eighties! My grass is brown and the perennials are on life support. I am flying to Pittsburgh the end of September to see Betsy Binder and Jane Noon Aigner, who are both well. The weather is all anyone talks about, so I really only have to report that I am doing water therapy at the local health club to avoid turning into a pillar of salt.”…Mollie McGuire Huitema writes that there is “Not much in the way of news here. I recently began tutoring a woman from Sierra Leone. Her older siblings went to school, but she cared for their mother who was ill and, consequently, never saw the in- side of a classroom. She has made excellent progress in the five weeks we’ve been working together.” Now, that seems to be really important news, not only for Mollie’s classmates but for the woman from Sierra Leone… Nancy Morrissey Bar- nette sends a note from Pompano Beach: “I have not been doing much this summer except trying to stay cool. My son, Craig is still traveling with the band (Donavon Frankenreiter) as their drummer. He returns from Montreaux, Switzerland on Sunday 7/10 where they will begin their East Coast tour in Boston. We will get to spend some time with him when he vis- its Ft. Lauderdale. I do spend some time reading, cooking, making jewelry, and occasionally dining with friends.”… Fran Pellicano DePaul writes, as “a proud Catholic Mom,” to share the news of her daughter’s educational efforts in St. Louis.” Danielle has been busy with a new endeavor, a labor of love, actually. She has started a new Catholic school there, The St. Austin School, run by an Association of the Faithful.” A Benedictine monk acts as its liaison with the diocese, and there are five local laymen on the board. By midsummer, 2011, they had 65 students and planned to limit enrollment to 75 stu- dents. All of this in just two months, plus they have hired a hand-picked, ‘known’ wonderful group of teachers and a headmistress, all of whom are excited to be part of the school. The faculty has selected the books, mascot by the children (and Father Bede), logo is designed and Land’s End is manufacturing the uniforms which are now available on the school’s website.” Danielle seems to be a chip off the old block…Anita Mazza Fink is not online, but Fran notes that she has spoken to her recently and Anita is fine…Charlotte Dimond Smith sends a wonderful travelogue: “Ray and I took a riverboat trip on the upper Amazon River in Peru in February with INTERNATIONAL EXPEDITIONS, INC. It was quite a trip. We found Peruvian people very hospitable. The riverboat was called LA ARMATISTA and recalled days of river boating of novel fame from the 1930’s. Every night the boat staff donned colorful shirts and turned into the evening’s band to entertain us, each night under a new name, The Chunky Monkeys, The Screaming Pihas, etc. The naturalists on staff were experts on the native bird and plant colonies. Peru has over 1800 species of birds. International Expeditions has been investing a portion of their profits into very simple, yet very effective, water purification plants in the native villages which cost about $7,000. We were told that the three leading causes of infant and child deaths were snakebite, drownings and dis- eases caused by the impure water.” Charlotte adds, “One of our fellow passengers related that her mother had spent her declining years at a wonderful retirement home in Western Pennsylvania. When we questioned her as to just where this was, she said it was Caritas Christi at Seton Hill in Greens- burg. It is a small world.”…Pat Satryan Thomas says that she has had a history of health problems since college, starting with severe migraines and then serious new afflictions mounting up. Her teaching career was thwarted, though now that she is getting older and drugs are getting better, the headaches have dissipated. Nevertheless, Pat managed to raise four boys and now has nine grandchildren—seven girls and two boys. Sister Mary Francis encouraged her to go into art, but the encouragement came too late in her college ca- reer for Pat to change majors. Nevertheless, she was art edi- tor of our 1958 yearbook who had been cued in by both Pat Satryan and Charlotte Dimond. She lives in Camp Hill, PA, out- side of Harrisburg and has been in touch with the sister of Mary Kay Ward Walsh, who attends the same parish that Pat does…Mary Kay Ward Walsh was surprised to be inter- viewed by the ‘58 Class News Agent. Mary Kay actually grad- uated from Duquesne rather than Seton Hill, though she start- ed out with the Class of ‘58 and roomed with a number of its members by shifting from one of those densely populated Ad- min dorm rooms to another during her freshman year. Like a number of other alums from that era, Mary Kay became a “cadet teacher” in the Sisters of Charity’s parochial school initiative in the Fall of 1955. She and Mary Alice hadn’t talked for almost 60 years – since that fall term when Mary Alice boarded with the Ward family in Dormont while cadet teach- ing near Pittsburgh…Kay Coleman O’Brien ‘57 went through that full-immersion introduction to teaching with them, and M.A. and Mary Kay shared many memories of that grimy but vital St. Luke’s parochial school in the steel town of Carnegie, PA. To add to our census, Mary Kay reports that she now has five children and ten grandkids, scattered from Chicago to Jacksonville to Tampa to Washington, DC…Pat Satryan men- tioned that she has been in touch with Angie Pantana Santil- lo, noting that Angie is coping with a debilitating illness. That called for an interview, and during the process Angie had to communicate through her husband John, for she has con- tracted a rare disease called “progressive supranuclear pal- sy” or PSP. Somewhat like Parkinson’s, this disease causes disequilibrium, stiffness of movement, and eventually dimin- ishment of speech. There are many theories about its origins, but no cure yet. After raising two daughters, Angie and John travelled widely – to places like Alaska, Europe & Hawaii. And despite becoming sick eight years ago, Angie is still active – keeping up with her daughters and with the many students she helped in her role as a teacher and guidance counselor at the Struthers, OH, high school. She always wanted to travel to the Holy Land, and so around Christmas time in 2010, John set up a tour to Israel for himself and Angie. They managed very well, what with Angie’s energetic spirit and the help of fellow tour members. On the morning of the interview, John said that Angie was planning to go to her high school reunion in the afternoon! Angie prays less for a cure than for the grace to accept her condition and get on with her life. She is pleased to think that her classmates would pray for her in the same way, though some of us may ask for a miracle as well…Judith Stanley, member of the St. Joseph the Worker congregation in Berkeley, California, has joined her fellow parishioners in trying to get the bishop to understand that their new pastor has made a series of arbitrary decisions that are not in the democratic tradition of their parish. St. Joseph the Worker, has played an important role in East Bay protests since its beginning—giving refuge to C�sar Ch�vez from threats on his life in the 1970s, for example, and helping to stage Good Friday anti-nuclear protests at U.C. Berkeley’s Lawrence Livermore lab for the last 20 years. Now Judy has taken on the risk of being labeled a “Berkeley-Bolshevik,” though she is actually a Professor of History emerita at the California State University-Heyward and lives in Emeryville. She has acquired her own protestor’s T-shirt that has the im- age Our Lady of Guadalupe on the front and “This is our Church” on the back. Judy, who has served the parish as “a member of the Parish Council and Liturgy Committee, Chair of the 125th Anniversary Committee, Lector and Lector Coordina- tor, Eucharistic Minister, and Monday morning ‘money counter,’” is one of a small number of parishioners slated to meet with Bishop Salvatore Cordileone of Oakland in late July. She should wear a different T-shirt then – one that reads “Hazard Yet Forward.”

Son Bill was recent- ly made vice president of the Chicago Tribune in charge of digital media; son Marc is president of an insurance company and son Paul has been writ- ing screen plays and working for Warner Brothers. Daughter Ann spent 6 weeks working in Stockholm last year for Icon, a chemical research company. Mary Jane vol- unteers for her church on funeral luncheons and edits the church bulletin. After Bill retired from teaching band and cho- rus for 44 years, his retirement project is teaching himself how to play the tuba and playing in a community band Marie Secky Emanuel was busy all summer gardening, golf- ing, and volunteering for Meals on Wheels. She took her 10 year old grandson to Boston on an elderhostel baseball trip. Last fall, she and Louie went to the Galapagos and had a fan- tastic time swimming with sea lions, turtles, and penguins. She reminds us that our 55th is on the horizon. Would anyone like to volunteer to help?…Eleanor Freiberger Burns attended her nephew’s wedding in July in Manasquan, N.J. along with her three daughters and son and families. After a week at the beach, they spent a few days sightseeing in Gettysburg… Kathy Keally Voigt celebrated her 74th birthday by taking a trip to Phoenix, Desert Botanical Gardens, the Grand Canyon, and Sedona – a very enjoyable trip. She recently entered a small local poetry contest and won first place in the adult division for her haiku on the monarch butterfly and blue-eyed Mary’s wildflower. She is also purchasing a spinet piano and is think- ing of taking lessons again. (Way to go, Kathy!)…Elaine Bransfield Smith has a new address which is: 1 Laurel Pl. Dr., Asheville, N.C. 28803. Esmith828@att.net. She was very disap- pointed to have missed our 50th, but Marlene and Marie sent all the news and Mary Jane Dobson Adee sent her lots of pic- tures. She felt like she was part of it in a small way. She and Mary Jane recently connected with Barbara Cassidy Bowser. Ann Ritchie Hartwick is recovering from leg/knee surgery and is in physical therapy learning to walk again! She is plan- ning on having her left knee done sometime in the fall. We wish her all good thoughts! …Ellen Marker Greiner reported her granddaughter was confirmed in Washington, D.C. last May and, to Ellen’s delight, took Elizabeth Ann Seton to be her patron saint…In July, Michele Moore Ridge ‘69 hosted a re- ception at her home to celebrate Seton Hill University and the Erie family of friends.

She was a great force in our class and will remain in our hearts forever…. Pat Prescott Fogarty is looking forward to her son’s marriage on July 30 in Pittsburgh in front of Heinz Field. He and his wife met in TX at a Steeler party, hence the location. In August they’ll be having a reception in TX…Kay Kumer Rooney re- ported in July “Art and I are sailing along on the Crystal Sym- phony from Alaska back to San Francisco where our journey began nearly two weeks ago, along with our daughter and her two sons. We have all been celebrating Art’s and my “50th” wedding anniversary, which we can’t believe has arrived so swiftly! From there we will all head to the Greenbrier Hotel in W.Va. where we will join our other children and their families to begin a 10 year reunion of the entire Rooney clan… which now numbers close to 100 people! I’m sure a very good time will be had by all!”…Gail Simpson Hogan wrote, “I have been a busy grandmother (first timer) since my daughter and her husband adopted a baby boy on November 25th, 2010. Yes, he
was born on Thanksgiving Day and our family is truly blessed with this special baby. I did take time out from my grandmother duties to take a Caribbean Cruise in April and am planning a beach trip in September.”… Marianne Randolph Unanue re- ported, Emil and I decided a few months ago to downsize and

Our daughter has 40 boxes of “treasures” in her basement which the stagers wanted out of the house. It worked – it was sold before it went on the market. Our new address is 8253 Parkside Drive, Clayton, MO 63105 and new phone # is 314-725-6427…Sheila Reilly Knoth wrote, “The Knoth’s have moved! We still live in
Moraga. We downsized and moved into Moraga Country Club. We no longer have the yard, pool and outside maintenance so it feels like we are on vacation!! We hope to travel more. Our new address is (all other info is the same) 39 Sea Pines, Mor- aga, CA 94556. This past school year I was back working at St. Mary’s College after having retired 4 years ago. The inner city Catholic Schools received a grant and partnered with St. Mary’s to increase the reading literacy in grades K-2. I worked as a literacy coach for the teachers providing staff development as well as visiting classrooms for demonstra- tions and observations. It was quite a challenge since these schools have a variety of cultures and languages”…Vivian

Seton Hill was a wonderful place to spend four years.

Harold and I have three children, Kirsten, Michael, and Eileen and five granddaughters. Before having, and after our children were off to school, I was an elementary teacher in the Cromwell and Middletown Public School systems for twenty-eight years. When I retired in 1999, I lasted one month as a retiree! I went on to become a teacher at Middletown Adult Education for an- other eleven years, retiring again, in 2010. Both teaching expe- riences were extremely rewarding. My goal was to make their educational experience a positive one as did Seton Hill in mine. After the second retirement, we vacationed in FL, and decided to purchase a condo there. We spent our first winter in Naples this year – apparently a wise move considering the winter we missed in the Northeast. However, it is good to be back in Connecticut, contemplating what the next phase of my life will entail and enjoying time with family and friends”… Janice Serenko Spritz has two children, Becky L. and Charles S.

News Agent: Sally Conroy Fullman, sally.fullman22@verizon.net, (908) 286-1422, 14 Murray Hill Sq, Murray Hill, NJ 07974 Although most of us have raised families and retired from work, we are busier than ever, often helping care for family, friends, and people in need. Our news focuses on our most re- warding volunteer work and its impact on our lives…Mary- Ann Kerekes Salvatore found the topic very timely. “I’m en route to India today where I have volunteered with an orphan- age and women’s rescue home, Ramabai Mukti Mission, since 1996. I lived there for four years, and return once or twice each year to train new teachers. It is extremely rewarding to know that I am involved with a Christian ministry and working with the wonderful people of India.” …Gail Vermilyea Quigley was also heading to a beloved place, England, eager to help at the 30th Ryedale Music Festival where some 10,000 music lovers, from opera to jazz, attended over 50 events…Priscilla Garvis Naworski and her husband Joe toured exotic and beautiful Turkey, making a special effort to learn about the Muslim faith, and later in the summer, attended the Chau- tauqua Institute learning center in New York. Both Priscilla and Joe do lots of volunteering. “The one that means the most is our work with St. Vincent de Paul. We do many things that assist the sick and needy, and we do it with a cadre of very Christ-like people who inspire us all the time.”…“Every volun- teer activity has been immensely rewarding,” says Daly Mackowski Schreck, who has been volunteering since she moved to San Francisco in the 1960s, working with the local symphony, arboretum, schools, and children’s theater. Daly is a lector and Eucharistic minister to the homebound, and she and her husband David work in their parish’s Ecumenical Pro- gram providing dinner and a place to sleep for 20 to 40 home- less men at various churches. “I am inspired by the number of young families who volunteer; families with teenagers who bring so much enthusiasm to our work. I am grateful that Dave and I have friendships with people who share our values of true community, a value instilled by our shared Catholic faith and nurtured by the examples we had at Seton Hill and St. Pe- ter’s College.” Daly fractured her tibia in a ski accident in May, and during the long recovery, realized how happy she was to be out helping others rather than staying at home…Daly and all of us extend our congratulations to Margi Fiori Slavonia for the heart-warming article about her and Jerry in the last issue of the ForwardLoretta Stana sympathizes with Daly because she is recovering from a dislocated shoulder. Loretta is some- times considered a local TV star because she reads each week for the televised Masses at St. Paul’s Cathedral in Pitts- burgh…Carol Wilson serves on several boards, including the United Way. Active in her parish as a Eucharistic minister bringing communion to the sick in hospitals, Carol feels it is special ministry, bringing God’s presence and comfort to their lives…Bobbi Fitzgerald Grant is filled with inner peace and deep gratitude. Her daughter-in-law Uyen, diagnosed last year with breast cancer, is now cancer-free. Bobbi’s legendary mother, who like Bobbi and her sister Pat attended Seton Hill, celebrated her 105th birthday surrounded by her family. Up to three years ago, Dorothy walked two miles every day to attend Mass and serve as lector! Bobbi has two volunteer activities that she values. “One is helping provide lunches for families following funerals in our parish. The other is with Literacy Vol- unteers of America where I help train tutors. It is so rewarding to have worked with students who have become citizens, passed their GEDs, and gotten better jobs as a result of our work…Although Sally Fullman doesn’t know anyone who is 105 years old, she works with many seniors who have osteo- porosis, and with residents in a retirement community where she leads monthly book discussions. Oh, and she writes our class notes, happy that it keep us in touch with one another… Bonnie Harshbarger, honored to be helping at the Holocaust Center in Squirrel Hill, has been a loyal friend since college days to Alice Wesolowski Turoczy whose husband Bob died last year, and Sharon Brewer…Sharon is active in her parish as a lector and a singer and signer with the Praise Alive choir. She also volunteers at the junior and senior high school where she taught for many years…Jeanie Mayes and her husband Dave celebrated their 40th anniversary hiking in the Pyrenees, staying in the same cottage where they spent their 25th anniver- sary. Sensitive to the religious traditions of others, Jeanie at- tended a silent retreat in a Buddhist center on Easter. About volunteering, Jeanie says “I teach French to retirees and Eng- lish to immigrant Congolese each week. I really look forward to being with them. It is gratifying to know that I’m sharing skills that I developed over the years, beginning at Seton Hill, with deserving and appreciative people.” Jeanie and Dave have a granddaughter, Kaia, born in February…Another new grand- parent is Elise Perisino Bizup whose grandson Griffin was born in April…Marge Randazza Callahan is happy to tell us that her daughter is expecting her second child soon. Marge and Mike take care of landscaping at their parish, and planting and caring for a vegetable garden for the priests…Mary Liz Allen Richardson’s volunteer work is mostly indoors for the moment. She’s organizing box after box of the archives of her town library to preserve the library’s history…Mary Ann Cam- palong Myhre visited Ireland with friends this summer, and keeps busy with church work and family…Kathy Stukus and her husband Phil work in their parish’s St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry. “There are so many good people who are down on their luck, and it is very satisfying to have the opportunity to improve the lives of others, however slightly. I also visit the dementia unit at our local nursing home with a friend and her little dog. It is heartwarming to see the faces of the patients light up and their smiles when the dog greets them.”…Betty Ann McDo- nough Baker’s most rewarding volunteer work is with Tails of the Tundra Siberian Husky Rescue where she has been on the Board of Directors since 2003. “We have fostered 27 Siberian huskies, one at a time since 2000, and will be soon taking in number 28. It is so rewarding to see how grateful these dogs are to get out of shelters and eventually find forever homes.”…Brenda Bergquist Kessler, involved in several politi- cal groups, sometimes feels as if she’s being fed to the dogs with all the partisan acrimony in Washington. She devotes time to a local soup kitchen and provides transportation and en- couragement to teens so they too can be involved…Joann Fal- con continues her work with property management in Boulder CO, and uses her experience to counsel and help people in need of affordable, safe housing. “Caring for my 96-year old fa- ther and my granddaughter is really a labor of love, and I hap- pily devote a lot of time to them.”…Although she still volun- teers at the gift shop at Saint Vincent, Laurene DiGennaro Kristof merits a well-deserved rest after co-chairing the Union- Reunion of blissfully-wedded Seton Hill and Saint Vincent alumni. As a result of her work she has met and developed warm friendships with many alumni over many years…To con- clude, Grace Hoover Puterman brings the value of volun- teerism full circle. “My most rewarding volunteer work is what I did for the 15 years that I was a stay-at home mother and wife. Most of my volunteering then was with an international women’s service organization where I did a mixture of fundraising, advocacy and management. Those experiences gave me many skills and the opportunity to develop lasting re- lationships and confidence as a leader. The reward came when I decided to pursue a career in the nonprofit-social ser- vices area. I’ve just retired after 22 years as CEO of a nonprofit organization in West Central Florida that recruits, trains, and matches daily 300 senior volunteers with at-risk children and the homebound elderly. My combined volunteer work and ca- reer have given me so much emotional compensation and sat- isfaction. And I have now returned to being a volunteer once again…helping make the world a better place.”
