Class Notes 1950

From JamesWheeler: "After a winter that wasn't, I look forward to a summer of joy. My son will be married in July, and he and his lovely wife plan to relocate from Virginia to New Hampshire. It's nice to have family close by."

Mary F. Kiley writes: "I am a full-year resident of Naples, Fla. I am slowing down some, but I still enjoy concerts, theatre, and church activities. I went on two cruises in 2006, one in the Baltic area and the other in the Mediterranean. I hope to do a Danube River cruise from Prague to Budapest in May."

From Maxine Crory Glenday '56: "When Charles Glenday, my husband's brother, came back from WWII he got a degree from Keene Teachers College in 1950. Later, after acquiring advanced degrees, he became principal of Alvirne High School in Hudson, N.H. Eventually, he went to work in industry. The salary was infinitely greater than a teacher's salary. I remember clearly how often I heard Charley criticized for leaving the educational field just for more money. He retired as vice president of Saunders Associates in Nashua. Before his death he served on many state and educational commissions. At one time he served as Nashua's police commissioner."

Marjorie Partington Soucy writes: "I visited classmate Priscilla Holmes Roberts at her winter residence in Delray Beach for two weeks in February. While there we participated in an all-day Methodist women's church conference. We also prepared and distributed food bags for families in need. Priscilla does this every Saturday morning."


1951

From Judy, Art Williams's wife: "We now live in Portland, Ind., in the farm country. Art and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary in December and repeated our vows to keep each other forever. Art keeps in tune with the world by watching CNN and the history and sports channels. He is an avid reader and works on crossword puzzles all the time. We are close to Fort Wayne and visit with friends. We are both members of the Breakfast Optimist Club that meets every Monday morning at 6:30 a.m. The Optimists devote time to bring out the best in kids, so we keep busy with all their activities. If there is an Optimist Club near any of you, I recommend that you get involved. It's very rewarding to see how you can make positive changes. Even though I work full-time, we find the time to devote to the youth in our community. I hope this will give you a little insight into what Art is doing. Education and children are still important to him."

Norma Wright Walker writes: "Joan Greeley Simpson and Forest decided to stay in New Hampshire for the winter. They had a chance to enjoy some subzero weather in January.

David '55 and Betsy Walker Staples returned from their winter stay in Florida at the end of April.

Beverly Proctor Boyer and Elaine Schmidt Chesley attended "Music Under the Bandshell" at Cambier Park in Naples, Fla. The band featured Doug Nelson, emeritus professor. The girls wore their College colors and looked for other alums. They enjoyed the concert and were proud of Doug as he conducted the band.

Our sympathy goes out to the family of Clifford Thompson, who died in December. He was a long-term care ombudsman investigating complaints of abuse and advocated for the residents.

Martha Bassett Sargent and her husband, Dick, have cut back on volunteering so they can do some activities of their choice. Last summer they came to New Hampshire for a large family reunion. In August they spent 10 days with their son in Colorado Springs.

Lois Wadleigh Kaminski sent a note saying she lives close to Keene to enjoy the events she reads about. Two of her sons live nearby and are always ready to help out.

Charlie and Lois Flint Plimpton '54 have shared 54 years. He is still involved with work at the Community Technical College in Laconia four days a week.

Nancy Curtis Anderson lives in Lynn, Mass., and has been busy with family. She enjoys hearing news of KSC and hopes to reconnect with her KTC friends real soon. Nancy has many fond memories of her days on campus.

Patricia Parent O'Donnell enjoys her grandchildren, who lives close to her. The youngsters are all involved in athletics.

Del Langille drove to Florida to visit his brother. On his way he stopped in Georgia. Del enjoys driving because he says it is the best way to see the countryside.

Patricia Perkins Durling has moved from Keene to Marlborough. I wonder how she will like living in the country after living on the square in Keene.

Beverly Proctor Boyer writes from her home in Florida that she has settled in for a while after making several trips north to Delaware. In her letter she tells about her children and grandchildren and all their wonderful activities.

A sad note from Marilyn Wilcox saying that her brother, Bill, died of cancer. Our thoughts go out to her and her sister Nancy Wilcox Marcoux '49.

Barbara Garland Woods moved to Hanover to be closer to her son Steven. She joined his family on a trip to Texas in February where they'll attend daughter Nancy's wedding.

Margaret Rhoades Bast is always busy with church activities, volunteering, sewing, house repairs, and caring for her 4-1/2-year-old great-grand nephew. She has traveled several times to Baltimore and attended the college graduations of two grandchildren.

Bob '53 and Nina Krochmal Witham spent six weeks on Marco Island. In the past year they enjoyed a visit from their son and his family from California.

Stanley Johnson and his wife enjoyed the winter months in South Carolina. They are both well.

The warm weather wasn't enjoyed by Eleanor Drowne Banfill because, once again, she was treated for tick bite. Ellie likes spending time with her family.

Wenoma Schoolcraft writes that she is becoming familiar with Missouri. Winnie visited friends in northern Minnesota and researched her family heritage while she was there.

Rita Hayes Evans and Arnold went to North Carolina for a wedding. They also went on an 11-day cruise in the Caribbean.

Richard Rogers and his wife traveled through a snowstorm to go to Ohio. They enjoyed the trip despite the weather.

Bevalie Bonardi Bouchard is enjoying the sights in Spain. Her daughter Kim is teaching at a university on a Fulbright Fellowship. They do a lot of sightseeing during her free time.

Delma Langille and I represented our class at Reunion 2007. Del carried the class sign in the parade and I took pictures.

Charles and Betty Berry Manos '49 enjoyed a cruise to Greece to visit relatives. They had a wonderful time.

A surprise phone call came from Vernon Dube (who lives in Kentucky), regarding his KTC Memory for the scrapbook. We had a wonderful chat.

I would like to thank the classmates who sent their special memories of days on the College campus. If anyone else would like to send a memory or two, send them to me as soon as possible. The memory book will be completed for the 2009 centennial celebration. Hopefully people will plan to attend some of the special events being planned."


1952

From Irene DiMeco Parent: "Hi, classmates. One of our "lost" classmates has been found: Sally Barker Andrews. Thanks to Pat Parent O'Donnell '51 for locating Sally for us. Sally should have been in the '51 graduation class, but because of an accident she couldn't return to classes until '52. Her latest address is 10 Buskwick Ave., Brenton, NY 11717. (Her class picture is in the '51 yearbook.) We would love to hear from you, Sally.

Congratulations to Don Carle who was inducted into KSC Alumni Athletic Hall of Fame for meritorious service at an induction ceremony and dinner in February. Don gave a very interesting chronology of the sports evolution of Keene, from the 1920s to the present.

Claire Waterhouse Simensen and I, welcome Winnie Langtry in our 'secretaries' club,' as she will be helping us with our class notes. Winnie is a welcome addition, and we are delighted to have her on board. She was taking pictures at the reunion and didn't miss a thing with her camera. We will be waiting to see those photos soon, and you can see them on our display board at our next reunion.

Our 55th reunion went off without a hitch and it was a wonderful experience and a great time for all who came. Those in attendance for one event or all, were Julia Booras, Don Carle and Charlotte, June and Dick Chambers, Phil Hyde and his wife, Rachel Osborne Kidder, Winnie Woodbury Langtry, Virginia Brown Leach, Norma Morissette and Bob Mallat, Charlie Mitchel and Shirley, Harold Pickwick and wife, Murray Ramsey and Margaret, Claire, Joyce Bridgeo Wick, Barbara Dupuis McNally, and Bruce and I. It was a small group, but lots of fun. Anita Rawchuck Nestor and Lila Murphy were supposed to attend, but they became ill and didn't make it to the reunion. We hope they get well soon! I wish more of you could have been there. Lots of laughs.

Julia Booras and her sister, Mary, were surprise guests at the President's Brunch. We hadn't seen them for 55 years. It was so great seeing them. She and her sister both received their Golden Circle medallions.

Our president, Dr. Helen Giles-Gee, was present at all the activities and delivered some spirit-filled and enthusiastic speeches.

I want to comment on some of the classmates who would have liked to attend but could not. I spoke with Mary Moore Conway, who wished she could have been there, but her niece was getting married the same weekend. Grace MacNevin Chandler was sorry that she could not attend this year, but she sends her love and best wishes to all. I had a very nice lunch with Doris Carpenter Barnes. She is now 96 years 'young' and is still very active tutoring in the schools and making quilts for the veterans in her area. It was a delightful visit.

We were sad to hear of the deaths of several classmates this year. Barbarann Bean and her mother were both killed in a tragic auto accident on Dec. 31, 2006. Barbarann was a first grade teacher for many years in both New Hampshire and Massachusetts and retired in 1980. She loved traveling through the United States, Canada, and Europe. I received a very nice e-mail from Robert Nartoff's nephew, Robert Pranes, telling us of the death of his uncle. We heard of the death of Sheldon Holmes. He lived in Keene all of his life. At his funeral, neighbors spoke of his kindness and helpfulness to everyone. Deveda McClintock Boseker also passed away in March. We send love and prayers to all their families.

Thanks to those of you who keep in touch, and we hope to hear from all of you soon."

From Claire Waterhouse Simensen: "Our 55th reunion is over. A great time was had by all who were able to attend. A lot of time was spent in the planning and it was over so fast. Wish that more of you could have joined us because it was FUN!!! We had 15 classmates, five spouses, and Dr. Giles-Gee and Kay MacLean from the College at our Friday night dinner at the camp. Dr. Giles-Gee gave a great talk, which was well received. She is such an inspirational speaker. I want to take this time to publicly thank Kay for all her assistance in planning our past two reunions. She was always there when needed.

At the Saturday alumni luncheon Richard Chambers spoke a few words on behalf of our class. Well done, Dick, and thanks.

Ginny Brown Leach, Barbara Dupuis McNally, and I went to see Shirley Coffin Grover on our way home. She was so glad to see us. Shirley has had many health problems this year, but is doing great. She still volunteers at the Keene soup kitchen every week.

Monday we went to Concord and had lunch with Lila and Mary Moore Conway. Lila was feeling much better. We had such a good time, sharing so many memories of our good days at KTC.

Saw Joy '54 and Glen '51 Falkenham at a Salem High School ice hockey game. They have a grandson on the team. I still enjoy attending as many of the games as I can. I recently attended a women's basketball game at Keene State. One of our Salem girls is on the team. It was a great game (Keene won), and I had a chance to visit with Don Carle. He is such a dedicated alum and really deserved to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Thank you, Winnie, for agreeing to help with the class notes. I will continue to pass on any news that you people are good enough to send, but will probably slowly "phase out" of this position. Please keep the news coming. So many of you have told us how you enjoy reading about our classmates in Keene State Today, but we need your input. Enjoy your day!"

From Winifred Woodbury Langtry: "Julia Booras and I are driving to Massachusetts to see Anita Rawchuck Nestor and her sister. We will have lunch, and take her some pictures, and tell her all about our reunion. It is a miracle to get Julia going again. She and her sister, Mary, both enjoyed the brunch and the golden medallion that was presented to each of them. She raved over Dr. Giles-Gee and thought the campus was wonderful.

It was wonderful to get to know Joyce Bridgeo. I have already talked with her on the phone and she wants to stay in contact.

It was good to be with you all again. I do miss Bob, but life goes on and being with Grace MacNevin and Gibby Chandler on Saturday afternoon meant a lot to me. Grace enjoyed it, too, and I will now keep in touch with her daughter as well. Grace and I enjoyed our first year teaching and sharing an apartment together, and it is nice to give her a boost at this low time in their life. I am glad her family is so supportive.

Take care. I will help as I can. My next thing is to get to see Lila again."

1954

From June Hesse Haymon: "I'm attending my Coast Guard Auxiliary workshops, so I'll be all set when boating season starts. It's good to be able to help our country. I'd like to remind my classmates to contact me about what is going on in your life. Please e-mail me and give me a chance to pass around our class happenings.

Received a nice e-mail from Mary McGuirk Clark. She will be returning to New Hampshire from Florida in the middle of June in time to see her grandson Zachary Clark graduate from Goffstown High School. She is very delighted that he has decided to attend Keene State in the fall. Last summer, Mary took a two-week land and sea trip to Alaska. She said it was wonderful, and she and her four friends had a terrific time. They topped it off with a two-night stay in British Columbia. This summer she will be going to Philadelphia for the NEA Representative Convention and will enjoy sightseeing while there. Bette Rundlett and Mary, along with three other alumni, had dinner with Dr. Giles-Gee in Sarasota in February. Jeff LaValley and Kay McLean and her husband were also there. They had a most enjoyable evening. Mary included a plea for our classmates to remember to keep contributing to the class of '54 endowment.

Again I ask the members of our class to please let me know what is happening in your life. It's nice to share news because I know we always had a busy, interesting class. My older son Lee is in California for 15 days, moving up rank in the Coast Guard. Can't believe in six years he will be in the Reserves for 30 years! I will be attending my granddaughter's graduation from kindergarten at the end of June. Happy times! Let's hear from you. Stay well."

Nancy P. Hill writes: "David and I went to Bermuda in May to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. Our son married last year and moved to Canada."

1956

From Mary Ann Pellerin : "Have you ever tried to do several projects going at the same time and then getting them mixed up in the process? This year as I was writing my memoirs, corresponding to relatives and friends, and organizing these class notes, I found I'd promised everyone a box of delicious cookies. They are not for you! However, after our 50th reunion, I promised those who didn't attend that I would send their copy of the commemorative CD badge if they wrote to me. Four classmates responded. If anyone wants a DVD version of the video portion, let me know and I'll create one for you. Send news along with your request to the address above.

Jean Worth Lancaster sent me a Christmas card, and her new address is: 91 Clipper Way, Newburyport, MA 01950. Jean does volunteer work at Amesbury Alliance Senior Center in Salisbury, Mass., ProLife Center, and is treasurer of the Christian Women's Club. Jean is also active in her church. She enjoys sewing, reading, and taking photos. Jean and I were 'roomies' for one semester in Fiske '53. At our 50th, she and I shared a two-bedroom suite. Déjà vu!

Marianne Marshall Baker wrote that she only attended Keene in her senior year and didn't live on campus. She was sorry to miss the reunion. She graduated on June 10, 1956, and married Stan Baker on June 12. They left for Belleville, Ill., immediately following the reception as Stan's leave ended Friday. The next Monday she went to ask the superintendent if he had a 1st grade job available. He looked at my credentials, called the guidance counselor, and gave her a job teaching 42 1st-graders on the stage in the auditorium/gym/lunchroom; pay $3,700. Marianne and her husband were transferred to Burkebernet, Texas, and from there to Charlestown, S.C., where their first child, Beth, was born. Then they returned to Newport, Vt., where Ellen and Alan were born. Marianne began teaching again from 1962 to 1986. Now we live at: 1469 Nelson Hill Road, Derby, VT 05829. Phone: 802-766-4709. We also spend a lot of time at our camp on the back of Norton Pond and at our Condo on Folly Beach, S.C."

Bettiann Scripture Donahue wrote that she "will at some point, send info to you about our lives. We are traveling quite a bit, so when I return I will get an update to you."

Hazel Brainard Greene wrote that her former husband, Edwin Greene, passed away a year ago, and that our lost classmate, Jack Laflamme and wife, Lynn, are living in Florida. Jack's address is: 27236 Voyageur Drive, Punta Gorda, FL 33983. Hazel stays in touch with Ann Rogers, Margaret Martin Dunbar, and Barbara Rogers Sanders. Hazel's address is: 3020 SE Spyglass Drive, Vancouver, WA 98683.

Roland Van Stoodley wrote: "I feel so bad that something came up and I was unable to attend our 50th. I have been looking forward to this tremendous celebration and seeing all my friends after all these years. (I have to say that I have tried to make most of the Golden Circle luncheons around New Hampshire this year and what a thrill it was to be with all those folks.) As for my life, Barb and I have downsized and moved from our big farmhouse in North Newport, N.H., over to Charlestown, N.H. Barb accepted a position as psychiatric clinician at the Vermont State Prison in Springfield. I keep busy as a full-time volunteer and a consultant with AARP for about 14 years. My position as AARP regional director volunteer for the Northeast covers 10 states plus Puerto Rico, so you can understand that I travel a great deal, generally going somewhere every week. I also serve on the National Guidance Group of NRTA (old term is National Retired Teachers Association.) To me this is back pay time to society because of the great life I have had so far. My initial interest in becoming involved with AARP was the strong interest in protecting social security from the hands of Washington politicians, making sure that it would be there for our children, grandchildren, and others. My advice to my former classmates is to get involved with lots of volunteer work, as well as family, because it keeps you young and energetic. Family wise, I have ended up so far with five children, 13 grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren (one golden retriever.)" The Stoodleys' address is: 4 Riverview Drive, Charlestown, NH 03603. Phone: 603-826-4031. E-mail: rstoo95519@aol.com.

Mary Marcotte Gline wrote: "my first great-grandchild was born on Frank's and my 49th anniversary. She is Reagan Elizabeth Hoy. On June 16, 2006, Frank and I had our 50th wedding anniversary. A party was given to us by our three children. On September 1, 2006, our second great grandchild, Ella Ann Hoy was born. The proud parents of these little girls are our granddaughter Suzanne (Gline) Hoy and her husband, Ben Hoy. I saw Clara Giovannangeli at one of the Golden Circle luncheons at the College Camp. We had a good conversation together. We will miss her." Mary's now living at: 661 Park Avenue, Apt. 6, Keene, NH 03431-1585.

Richard Talbot attended our 50th and later wrote that he "enjoyed it more than expected. It was great to see the 'survivors' who made an effort to attend." He also wrote about Ed Greene's passing around the middle of January while in Florida and had a memorial service in his hometown of Plymouth, Mass., on February 11, 2005. "I attended as Ed was perhaps my closest friend during our four years at Keene. I didn't recognize any other class members in attendance. His passing makes me feel a little bit older." Dick's address is: 24 Old Cart Path Lane, Pembroke, MA 02359.

Margaret E. Guilmette wrote: "Enjoyed our 50th reunion, despite the rain. Sure wish more of our '56 classmates could have been there. Those of us who were there had a grand time over the reunion weekend.It was so great to see all who attended. Dinner at the College Camp was fun also."

Maxine Crory Glenday wrote: "I could write a book covering my life since graduation. I was eligible for my degree in February of 1956. Eight weeks into my student teaching, I was offered a job to teach sixth grade in my hometown of Dover, N.H. That fall I had done a favor for the reading supervisor of Nashua. I illustrated a book on phonetics that she hoped to publish. Her twin sister had the same position in Dover. What are the odds of that happening? I had enough credits from UNH to graduate from KSC in midyear. I leaped at this chance to have my own classroom with no supervisor.

The following year, my husband, an electrical engineer, UNH 56, and I moved five times in order to fulfill the requirements of the Westinghouse Student Engineering Program. The following year the U.S. Air Force called requesting Bill to serve the three-year requirement of ROTC. Finding ourselves in a mobile unit we moved from five air force bases during the next three years. They were Scott-Illinois, Tinker-Oklahoma, Donaldson-South Carolina and Stewart-New York. Fortunately, Westinghouse retained Bill's position so he had a job to return to after three years.

However the mobile pattern continued. From 1960 to1975 Bill accepted new positions five times, from Augusta, Maine, to St. Louis, MO, to Warren, N.J., to Marblehead, Mass. These were the places we purchased homes and our two sons attended elementary schools. Also I was finally able to substitute - eventually contracting to teach seventh grade for five years. I loved it.

The fall of 1975 the moving "genie" caught up with us again! Bill accepted the offer to go international and became Director of Westinghouse Operations in Europe. International Headquarters was Frankfurt, Germany. We spent 10 fabulous years there. We all learned to speak German, to varying degrees. As families, we were considered expatriates. Many years earlier the American women living abroad in the major cities of the world formed a club, which supported all the expatriate women. In our Frankfurt group we represented thirty different nationalities. I volunteered to organize and direct monthly trips. By this time my German was proficient enough to handle all the arrangements for hotels, restaurants, museums, buses, trains, and planes. I managed this job for four years, but it became a huge chore. I needed to move along. A friend and I went to Florence, Italy, to study northern Italian cooking with some well-known chefs. When we returned we gave cooking lessons to the club members and many German friends. It became so popular we had to have a one-year waiting list.

Besides traveling on business trips, vacation trips, and still joining the club trips I was on the go a lot. The knowledge we all learned from these travels was immeasurable. I enjoyed being able to tutor a number of people in English and German. Naturally we had many guests. Ann Hansis Flynn came over one year. I took her by train through the Alps to Zermatt to see the Matterhorn. Before Bill Ray died, I learned he had visited Bad Homburg. Bob Morgan '54 said he had visited friends there also. Even stranger, Art Mitchell told me he visited his daughter in Germany. She lived less than a quarter of a mile from our house.

The climate in Central Germany was often gray and overcast in winter. We missed the sun. In the '70s we bought a place on the beach in Naples, Fla. Only a couple of years ago I learned Janet Tremblay '55 and Dick Waldo live close to us. We got together a few times. Sadly Dick passed away last year. A few years ago, Cynthia Foster and Jim Brezinski '54 visited us in Naples.

In 1985 we returned from Germany. That year I had to have major back surgery to correct scoliosis. We spent the next five years in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Westinghouse Electric's headquarters. Bill was able to retire in 1989, which was a blessing as he has been able to care for me. My health has been declining, unfortunately.

We had always loved the coast of Maine, but decided to retire to our home in New Hampshire. It has turned out to be a wise decision. Our children and grandchildren love skiing and hiking the White Mountains with their grandfather."


1957

From Cynthia Randall Faust: "I have just returned from the 2007 Alumni Reunion at Keene State (June 1-3) - the 50th reunion of our class! I am still exhilarated by it all! More than 50 class members plus many spouses attended, which is nearly half of our original class. We laughed, cried, hugged, ate (too much), danced, took pictures, and talked and talked.

Judy Kalich, who has been acting as advisor to our reunion, came to our class meeting. She and Nils Peterson unveiled the drawings of our class gift, a beautiful clock tower to be called the Class of 1957 Centennial Clock Tower.

The reunion committee sponsored a campus-wide student contest for clock tower designs. The chosen design by the selection committee was submitted by Eric Palmer, class of 2009, one of six entries submitted. Eric will be the recipient of a monetary award.

We are all excited to see the outcome of the clock tower, which will be dedicated in 2009 during the Centennial Celebration of Keene State College. If you were unable to come to the 50th reunion, please try to come to the dedication of our class gift. We are nearing our goal, and donations will still be accepted through 2009. The class appreciates and thanks all those who have contributed. If you haven't already, we hope you will take the opportunity to be part of this gift. Please make sure you indicate on your check that your donation is for the class of 1957 gift.

When I got home after the reunion, I sat down and read the biographies that were submitted for a class of 1957 reunion book. My comment when I finished was, "wow!" What an accomplished group of classmates we have. The education honors and experiences are truly amazing. Every class member will receive a copy to enjoy.

If you have digital photographs from the reunion, please send them to Jeff LaValley at jlavalley@keene.edu.

Many people expressed concern about the people that did not attend. We realize that some of you are physically unable to make the trip and others of you had other obligations. We missed all of you and hope that you will attend in an upcoming year. It was a weekend of getting reacquainted, sharing memories and pictures, and learning new things about each other. I can't say enough!

Several classmates mentioned that we don't have much news in our column in Keene State Today. It is very hard to write a column when few people send news. Please help by dropping a line to classnotes@keene.edu, to my e-mail address (cynjon@webryders.net), or to my home address (77 Sand Hill Road, Peterborough, NH 03458-125705). Thank you.

The class of 1957 thanks everyone that was involved in making this reunion a success: Judy Kalich, Nils and the reunion committee, Jeff LaValley, Pauline Dionne, and all the Alumni Office staff and volunteers, especially Connie Tremblay and Mary Lou LaCoste."

Ann Callahan Brown writes: "I am busy being a trustee on a high school board, now going on my eighth year. I'm also busy with 12 grandchildren."

From Cynthia Glover: "I have moved back into my condo after two years. It was heavily damaged in the 2004 hurricanes. It is a relief and much appreciated."

Mary Minkler writes: "In August, I did a Rhine River cruise from Amsterdam to Switzerland; in February, I did a Panama Canal and Yantze River cruise; and this September, I will do a cruise from Shanghai to Beijing. I also volunteer in a third-grade classroom once a week."


1959

From David C. Leavitt: "We spend our summer in Bradford, N.H., on Lake Massacecum."

Frank Davis writes: "I am currently serving my fifth term in the N.H. House of Representatives. I'm also serving as Assistant Majority Leader. I have six children, three step-children, and 16 grandchildren."
