I have to report some sad news first. Bobbie Klein Fraser’s husband, Bill, passed away in September after a lengthy illness. Bobbie’s family is very supportive. She just celebrated a birthday with them, which included boating on Lake Winnipesaukee. She saw Miss Saigon in nearby Maine. Bobbie is always busy. She took up African drumming and will go back to her equine therapy soon and volunteer at the hospital recording surgeries.
Anna Laura Neidert also lost her husband in September. He had been ill a long time and, as Anna Laura said, he is now in a better place. They had a memorial service with all their children and grandchildren. Anna Laura’s children have plans for her to go to Florida or Maine. She hasn’t decided where to go. She lives in a retirement community and reports how wonderful hospice was.
Smokey Reeves diRienzo had the birthday we all celebrated recently and is trying to deal with her antiquity. She and Lou have a wonderful life with her kids, grandkids, and great-grandson. She mourns the loss of all our friends who have passed on, as do we all.
Sheryl Toth Noorland enjoyed a delightful tour of the northern Italian and Swiss lakes district. From there, they spent a few weeks in Kauai, Hawaii. Sheryl is retired after a 37-year career in federal service.
Alberta Hamscher Lindsay enjoyed a nice holiday in Halifax and Prince Edward Island. She and her husband are fortunate to have good health that enables them to continue to enjoy Hawaii.
Penny Sonntag Hahn, always a loyal responder to my emails, still lives in the shore area of New Jersey and is always happy to see the tourists leave to renewed peace and quiet in the area. They had a good sailing season but due to hurricane Irene had to cancel the big race. Penny hopes to attend the Arcadia Florida Reunion in February.
Jane Ann Robinson Carpenter is feeling well after knee surgery. She swims and is active in her church.
Marilyn Collins Stewart from Minneapolis, Minn., attended lots of grandchildren’s graduations, including one from medical school. One is going on to do cancer research. Lynn traveled to Florida to spend time with friends as well as to Denver. Her family continues to get together for holidays. She continues to volunteer at her church.
Elizabeth Stevenson Hogg writes, “My daughter, Beth, and her husband, Mark, bought a ‘retirement home’ in Lewes, Del., about 45 minutes from me, so I’ve been visiting on weekends. They live and work in Alexandria, Va. I have two grandsons in New York, one studying architecture at City College and the other at West Point. My granddaughter, Suzanne, is studying law in Charleston, S.C. David, my 6-year-old grandson started school in September.”
Burt and I (Barb Bronson Danziger) are healthy and will spend five weeks in Boca Raton, Fla. I shall miss the Reunion down there by one day this year. We visited near Arcadia recently and Georgene Pilling ’04M, Alumni Relations Program Director, came for lunch. I try to see her a few times a year. That’s all for now. Have a healthy and happy year.

I apologize to my classmates for my “hiatus” as your Class Editor. I’ve enjoyed being your editor, and I hope to resume gathering news from all of you. The Delaware Valley Arcadia University Alumni Club meets regularly, and our small group forms an enjoyable and informative time together. We are a “meet and eat” group! Our June 2011 meeting was held at “Paulie’s Anna Rose” in W. Trenton, N.J., hosted by Pat Jaynes Hobson ’53 and Shirley Davison Disler ’53. We are a small club but have remained loyal and as active as possible in our endeavors for Arcadia.
Another recent meeting in October 2011 found us having tea together at Wild Flowers, a picturesque and lovely tea room in Hulmeville, Pa. We were honored to have Georgene Pilling ’04M, Alumni Relations Program Director, join us for lunch. Other members attending were: Jean Stahl Noble ’47, Deborah Gable ’59, Peg Bliss Conoway ’48, Shirley Davison Disler ’53, Pat Jaynes Hobson ’53, Ruth Swartley Maxson ’46, Ginny Fulmer Haist ’51, Barbara Peterson Rockel ’53, Doris Parsons White ’51 and BJ Lebegern ’51.
I have a smattering of items to report. Sympathies are extended to Dotty Wirth Janzen, who lost her dear husband, Heinz, this past year. They had a wonderful union of marital and Christian ministry.
Also, sad news from Ginny Ahern Hendrickson on the death of one of her twin grandsons. We share the sadness and joys of our classmates. A very interesting article appeared in the Philadelphia Inquirer in August of 2011 about a train wreck some years ago in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey. Shirley Musson Brower’s husband, Walt, was the featured commentator in the article. Walt has co-authored a book published by Arcadia that mentions the crash and provides pictures. Walt, a retired Dean of Education of Rider University, has a high interest in the Pine Barrens, where he grew up and his father was a cranberry farmer in Chatsworth.
Anna Diamond’s granddaughter was on the national winning North Penn Knights Marching band. She also auditioned and was accepted into the North Penn Wind Ensemble. Anna’s 9-yearold grandson is an avid baseball player.
I (Betty Tomlinson Lebegern) am the full-time organist/pianist at the Morrisville United Methodist Church and enjoy every aspect of my musical efforts. This past year I’ve “entertained” (played the piano) at several events at a friend’s residence in Wesley Enhanced Living in Doylestown, Pa. My elementary school chorus accompanying also continues. I know you will all join me in welcoming the new President of Arcadia University, Carl (Tobey) Oxholm III and his lovely wife, Kim. I had the pleasure and privilege of meeting them in September 2011 at the beautiful home of Philip Lindy, the widower of Annabel “Rusty” Fleisher ’52. Phil graciously invited Beaver College “alums” to be among the first to welcome Tobey and Kim. We are proud Beaver College graduates, and it was a pleasure to have our “heritage” and contributions acknowledged. I believe that exciting and productive times are ahead for Arcadia under the leadership of President Oxholm, a very personable and positive thinking man. He and Kim bring to Arcadia a respect for the past and a forwardlooking plan for the future. Please help me do my “job” as editor and send me your news: e-mail, write, phone…!
1952 - Reunion 2012

Dear Classmates: I look back over the many decades to the fall of 1950. (Did we even think of 1950 as mid-century? Did any of us foresee a TV program called Happy Days?) I lived in Montgomery Hall next to the tennis courts. Our roommates and suitemates were matched by religion for the most part. I remember my roommate (Betty Ann Virostek from Ohio) was so homesick for her father, her boyfriend and her hometown that nothing seemed to cheer her up—even the “mixers” with nearby male college population were useless. Her father was a widower, and my mother a widow, so we often wondered if Miss Darling was a matchmaker. How many of you learned how to play bridge that freshman year? Was it because you smoked and had to go to certain areas to commit this vice? To this day when someone asks me why I don’t play cards and I reply “because I don’t smoke,” I always get a quizzical look and “I don’t get it” answer. Remember those green beanies we had to wear until Thanksgiving break after Song Contest? We were so lucky to have Mary Jane Slade Mahaffey lead us in the competition— I can still sing “We Are the Scarlet and the Grey.” When we were sophomores and finally able to “haze” freshmen, we were told to be easier on them so Student Council called it “Greenie Daze/ Days,” and our thoughts of getting even were stopped. The Centennial Sweetheart Junior Prom featured Ray Anthony & Band, and I will always remember Paula Berrino Livingston and Anita Ruff Ott walking down the grand staircase with their escorts smiling and modeling a calm, happy demeanor. There are so many other memories I have of those years, tarnished only by the dim threat of McCarthyism on TV. I will continue to ask each of you to send news of your current productive activities, but if my mailbox continues to be empty, I will use this space to bring nostalgia into the readers of this space. As one who is no longer a daughter, a sister, a wife, I think of you, my classmates, and pray your lives are blessed with family, friends, and good mental and physical health.

Sandy Cohen Bloch and her husband, Norty, have been traveling whenever possible. The last trip was a cruise on the Danube River for 10 days. “We have two grandchildren in high school. Norty was a dentist in practice with his brother for many years. I owned a book store with a friend for six years until we had to give it up when they raised the rent.”
Peggy McKee Karp writes, “David and I are well and in the midst of preparing to relocate, so at the moment, the move is our first priority. We have submitted an offer on a short sale on a condo near son, Peter, in San Mateo, and are preparing our house for sale, as well. Dealing with a short sale is a long, drawnout procedure, and the outcome is not always certain. However, if all goes OK, it will be worth the wait. All four grandchildren (Jack, Anna, Adam and Julia) are great fun to be around and love being together, as they are so close in age ranging from 7 to 11.”
Rhea Atwood writes, “At last another Huguenot book update. I live in Paris writing away with a splendid view of the Pantheon. Writing is going well, but slowly. The publisher is excited about it.” If you want to see her picture and read her blog: http://passionatenomad.wordpress.com.
Barbara Zoubek Surmonte writes, “One grandson graduated from Rutgers, one granddaughter graduated from high school, one granddaughter (who lives in Australia with her fiancé) was married here in New Jersey, and we are awaiting the birth of our second great-grandson (not too far from Valley Forge, Pa.). We were so lucky with Hurricane Irene. We were worried since we were leaving for France just a few days after the hurricane. At JFK the security lines were as long as a football field since so many flights were backed up from the weekend. We flew to Paris and then to Marsielle and stayed in Aix en Provence for three days, then boarded a barge up the Rhone River for six nights and in Paris for two nights. It was very pleasant stopping in many little towns along the way. Our youngest son who lives in Scotland was here for Thanksgiving. We leave for Florida after Thanksgiving for a few weeks, come home for the holidays and then go back in the beginning of January. I saw Elinor Towell Chevalier and Barbara Martell Rutan (separately).”
Harriet Swoyer Baisch writes, “I’m happy to say my son finished his seven months of treatment for lung cancer last week. Wis and I have been to all the Temple University football games so far, home and away. Sometimes the team looks fantastic, sometimes not so. Wis and I met President Tobey and Kim Oxholm at an Arcadia gathering. We were both really delighted and look forward to interesting things from this capable young man. He has a good background for the job and is very personable. Kim seems eager to play a role in the life of Arcadia. We have not traveled this year; we want to be close to home and my son. We built a bedroom and bath on the first floor of the farmhouse—Wister’s answer to downsizing! (Not mine.) We leave for Florida on Dec. 29 for three months in our ‘other world’ and will attend the Florida Reunion in Naples.”
We (Patty Darling Kile and Wils) took a trip this year to Iceland where we enjoyed an Elderhostel (Road Scholar) trip around the island. We saw geysers, mud pools, fjords, glaciers, icebergs, waterfalls, Blue Lagoon, mountains, geothermal activity, volcanoes, lava fields, Icelandic horses, sheep, deserts, and light almost all night! Wils and I took a short trip to the “Wilds of Pennsylvania”— near Route 80 in the mid-western part of the state where we saw the majestic elk, mountains galore, fishing streams, and colorful fall foliage. We stopped at Penn State to take our freshman granddaughter to lunch before we headed home. Wils and I had planned to go to Dick Glazier’s wedding to Anna on Sept. 9, but the 15 inches of rain in our area flooded the roads, and we were unable to get out of Hershey. The Poconos didn’t have the floods that we did! If you have news please send it to me so we can find out about you.
1957 - Reunion 2012
Betty Siebener Kleman enjoyed a cruise along the Rhine and Mosel Rivers. They visited five countries and “walked off” her legs. It is beautiful wine country. She keeps busy playing games with her community friends—Mexican Train, Bridge, etc. Eating out and working at the church’s thrift store occupies more of her time. Plans are in the works for another cruise to the Caribbean in late January, including Aruba and other islands. A group of 14 from the community are scheduled to attend. That cruise ship will never be the same!
Anne Godsey Stinnett can’t seem to slow down. She is practicing probate law from her home law office and has completed her continuing education updating her license for yet another three years. What a woman!
We are so sorry to report the passing of Nancy Juppenlatz Schuck last summer. Freda Friz Schopfer is busy with Curves for Women Club. “We are gaining in members, which makes me happy to see so many ladies keeping in good ‘shape’ and in good health. We continue to hope that our bones and muscles remain strong. I took two weeks off to visit and cruise in Alaska. What a beautiful state. I also had the privilege of meeting our new president, Carl (Tobey) Oxholm III. What a fabulous person. I can’t wait to share him with all of you at Reunion time. Under his leadership, Arcadia will flourish even more, I’m sure. Don’t forget to save mementos for the scrapbook/albums at Reunion. I still have them and promise to update some of the information but I do need your help to add to them.”
As you all must be aware, we will celebrate our 55th Reunion on June 9! Our Reunion chairs, Edie Hall Neal and Ellie Perrine Cox, and their committee are busy planning. If you have suggestions, please contact Edie or Ellie—and—plan to attend! Our 50th was great fun!
Bea Durham Blackman finds it hard to believe that she attended two granddaughters’ graduations from high schools last June, (fortunately, not the same week). She is “happily unencumbered” of her home and living in an apartment not far from all of her activities. She ran into Betty Lynn Tate Kirwan and Bill and had a great visit at a University of Pennsylvania museum exhibit. During the summer, she visited Woods Hole, Mass., for a fascinating “Roads Scholar” program. Interestingly, her husband, Dick Durham, taught our new president in middle school.
Rosie Deniken Blankley and Walt spent most of this past year traveling. They chartered a barge with friends and cruised a canal in France and took a riverboat down the Danube. They also flew to Chile and traveled through the Panama Canal and they took their 13-year old granddaughter to South Africa. They keep busy with golf, exercising and with their newest activity, duplicate bridge. They have been collecting a few master’s points, and they are “still speaking to each other.”
Diane Zasloff Cohen is retired and loving every minute of her life in Florida. She writes that her two daughters, Wendy and Alison, both graduates of Beaver College, are doing well.
Following cataract surgery, Kathy Gibbons Babkow says she’s seeing wrinkles she never knew she had! She enjoys working full-time at Cornell Medical College. She and Al are enjoying their 2-year-old grandson, who is “cute and fun.” Kathy keeps in touch with Dottie Hancock Williams several times a week.
Ellie Perrine Cox’s had a “great, exhausting summer.” In June, she, along with some of her grandchildren and their church youth group, worked with the Heifer International Foundation in Massachusetts. In July, she and her sister’s grandchildren were in South Dakota at a Tree of Life Mission, and in August she found herself in Joplin, Miss., helping to ready temporary schools for opening following the tornado of May 23. She met in September in Connecticut with Cindy Howard Hermanson, Nancy Maresca Piper, and Lynn King Hennessey for their annual reunion. Busy girl!
Barbara Gordon Cooke and Ned tried to get away from the heat of the summer in Virginia by spending 10 days in the Napa Valley of California with their son Paul and his family and another two weeks in Brewster, Mass., with their daughter and her family. Our sincere condolences go to Barb on the death of her sister, Ginger, in March 2011.
I just received a note from Julia Sturgeon Martin who is still playing tennis, singing in her church choir, reading and volunteering. The church is planning a rendition of the Messiah for this Christmas. Julia enjoys performing in her church drama group. She is adjusting to being alone since Garland’s passing, but manages to visit her sister, Ann, in Virginia and Mary in Oregon. She feels “pretty healthy for an old gal.”

It’s catching up time again, and by the time you get this, the erratic summer weather will just be a memory. As I write, it’s October and we’re having unseasonably warm weather in New Jersey and most of the other states. But, after spending so many years experiencing the idiosyncrasies of Mother Nature, I know that we’ll all soon be shivering and trying to remember what 85 degrees felt like.
Jessie Mulford Weeks, in recounting her summer of violent weather in her beloved Cape May, N.J., wrote, “We did not have any dire effects, but found the sandbags in the garage and stacked them against the first floor doors. It does seem like the plagues: earthquake, hurricane, tornado and now hordes of mosquitoes.”
Judie Sann Grenen echoes a similar season, saying that after experiencing an earthquake and hurricane the same week, perhaps someone is telling us to shape up! She and Carl took a wonderful trip to Maine and the Canadian Maritime, followed by a number of family events, including graduations and engagements. Their nephew is marrying a young lady in Australia where he and his parents live, so the Grenens will be going “down under” in December to celebrate. We sure are a traveling bunch!
Bunny Brown Curley and her husband began celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary on Aug. 12 of last year, although the event occurred in 1961. Their reasoning was when you have your first birthday, you’re already 1 year old, so on their anniversary this year they had been together 51 years! However you count it, Congratulations! They spent New Year’s Eve in Boston with four of their five kids and eight of their oldest grandchildren. They also had a weekend in Killington, Vt., at a lovely lodge with friends and family.
Becky Nell Winn King took a 30-day round trip from San Diego to Hawaii and French Polynesia. In August she repeated a twoweek coastal voyage to Norway, as she wanted to see the country when it was green. She had visited before when it was snow covered. In October, she will be on a trip from Fort Lauderdale to the Western Mediterranean. Bon voyage, Becky!
Chris Nordstrom Stainton visited Alma Alabilikian and her husband, Peter, in their home. Chris has an injured foot and has not walked on two feet for six months. She says her continuing mantra is condoms and safe sex. She has a published chapter in Policy and Politics titled, “Condom Lady.” Wonder why she never mentioned that in Seminar?
Barbara Dilling Kaplan feels that Mother Nature has been going easy on New Mexico, where she lives. February brought lower than usual temperatures followed by drought conditions. August was the hottest in recorded history.
Joan Ottaway Gurniak and husband, Ted, celebrated their 53rd wedding anniversary and have been celebrating the graduation and marriage of their oldest grandson, Andy, a Columbia University graduate. Andy is working for a civil engineering firm that handles massive projects such as buildings and tunnels. The proud grandparents attended his June wedding. Their other three grandchildren are attending the University of Pennsylvania. Although she has taken on fewer duties, Joan is still active with her music.
Shirley Renninger Cressman and her husband, Bob, also passed a milestone. On Sept. 1, they toasted their 55th anniversary. They had an opportunity to visit their son in California for three weeks. They stay involved in local politics and love living in Willow Valley, Penn., a quaint area near Lancaster.
In July, Alma Alabilikian and Pat Fletcher Lyford took Pat’s former roommate Pepper Mintz Faust and her two granddaughters, Kate and Elena, on a tour of the Arcadia campus as they begin to shop for colleges. Alma, having headed one of the art departments, could offer them a tour not available to other prospective students.
And now a word from your past editor, Pat Fletcher Lyford. As usual, Travelin’ Pat has been running hither and yon, especially yon, aka Alaska. She was there, teary-eyed, when only grandchild, Laura (a mini-Pat look alike) had her first day of kindergarten. An added bonus was that son Peter, an avid fisherman, kept them well fed with fresh salmon. In September, they returned to the lower 48 and had visits from friends from New Zealand, Berne, Switzerland, and Zurich, Switzerland, all unrelated. In addition to all this socializing, the dynamic duo participated in fundraising for the Boys Scouts and various other projects. Catch them if you can! As for me, I finally moved in September and am still surrounded by boxes. Boy, have I got stuff! I was fortunate to have been invited to Beaver/Arcadia to attend the Alumni Leadership Summit on Oct. 15. It was an opportunity to meet and interact with brand-new President Tobey Oxholm. Tobey is a very warm and likable man with an engaging sense of humor. Part of his goal is to bring Beaver along as a viable part of Arcadia today. The day was dedicated to brainstorming about “engaging alumni leadership and building energy for the future.” We gathered in groups to discuss how to make past graduates feel an important and living part of the University in today’s world. One small but meaningful move on Tobey’s part is prominently placing apparel, mugs, and other memorabilia with the Beaver logo in the bookstore. It was nice to see our name displayed again.
Also participating on behalf of our class were Alma Alabilikian, Barbara Jones Sibley, and Pat Fletcher Lyford. There was opportunity to catch up with some friends from previous classes and I enjoyed spending time with Mary Pickell Nelson ’59 and “Rosie” Deniken Blankley ’57. Rosie’s daughter seems to be following in her mother’s championship footsteps, but this time the Blankley sport is aquatics! It was a delightful day, stimulating, creative and reminiscent, culminating with fireworks, which highlighted Grey Towers. I came away with a sense of belonging that I haven’t felt in many years. That’s part of Tobey’s mission, and he intends more activities involving alumni. If he can get jaded ole’ me excited, he’ll achieve his goals and we’ll be getting together to sing “…so hail, to Beaver, hail, we say; Fling high the scarlet and the grey.” Thanks, as usual for your contributions.
We send condolences to Tobe Greene Saskor whose husband, Ludwig Saskor, passed away in June after a very long illness. Tobe works from home, creating websites, advertising flyers and photographing families, horses, dogs etc. Days are otherwise happily filled with playing MahJongg, singing (still a soprano), shuffleboard (a new treat), reading and church. Renee Isaacs Glickman visited Karin Wittekind Egan in Wilmington at the end of May and then went on to Charleston, S.C. They had a nice visit and Kathy loved Charleston! They hope to get together again soon.
Barbara Brindley Cramer writes, “My husband, Bud, and I visited my 98-year-old mother Elynore Willey Brindley this summer in California. She is a Beaver Alumni Class of 1934—probably one of the oldest Beaver alumni. She was a Fine Arts major who had to leave college after two years because of the Depression; her brother had to finish his medical studies. I believe Mary Lou Bratt Mees’ mother also went to Beaver. Mom is mentally alert and she still drives locally. She keeps busy knitting hats for African kids and local charities and paints notepaper sets with floral designs as gifts.”
Gail Foster Grant and Ron enjoy traveling to see family and friends on the East Coast (daughters in North Carolina, Florida, and Massachusetts), since they retired to the San Diego area 16 years ago from Connecticut. They have traveled around the world a couple of times in the last 15 years. The latest international trip was a two-month cruise from Singapore to Rome, by way of India (the Taj Mahal), Dubai, Seychelles, down the African east coast to a safari in Kruger National Park, then up the west coast, including Namibia, Togo, Ghana, Senegal, Morocco, etc. “It was a fascinating time of seeing the beauty of God’s world and the many different peoples and cultures. We also enjoyed giving copies of Campus Crusade for Christ’s JESUS DVD of the Gospel of Luke to the tour guides we had in the different countries. The DVD has been translated into over 1,000 languages, so wherever we go, we order DVDs in that country’s primary language.”
Bonnie Bailey Rhea writes, “My husband and I have been living in Orlando for 51 years and our three children, spouses and three grandchildren are also here. Our daughter, Diane, just completed cancer treatment. I enjoy reading about Arcadia and Class of 1959 news.”
Muriel Guenst Zwicker writes, “Ed and I retired in 2000, but I still sub in our school district and tutor at home. We spend our summers and some winter weekends at our beach house in Avalon, N.J. Ed, our oldest, is a vice president at Philadelphia Insurance Co. and runs marathons. Joy, his wife, sells real estate for Weichert. They have one daughter, Jessie, who is a graduate of CIA, is married, and has two children. Charles, our middle son, is a director of sales for a software consulting firm. He and his wife, Marianne, have three children. Marianne has her own design firm. Charles and Ed are president and vice president of the Springfield Township Historical Society and have written two books for Arcadia Publishing on Springfield Township and Whitemarsh Hall and Stotesbury Estate. John, our youngest, is an industrial engineer and lives in Pittsburgh with Jeri, his wife, and two children. Jeri has her own business and is a landscape architect. Ed and I spend part of the winter in Florida to escape the nasty winters. Everyone should plan a trip to Arcadia. The campus is beautiful. I think I will always think of our alma mater as Beaver College.
Barbara Ulmer Zimmerman writes, “My children and grandchildren live much too far away! They should have asked me! It makes for great trips, several times a year. I do bring them all to the Jersey shore once a summer so we can all get together. I have two married granddaughters now. I continue to do family mediation for the court system here, and it’s most satisfying. I do not have follow-up visits, which is quite a relief. I play a lot of golf but don’t seem to improve much! I enjoyed meeting a 1957 grad in my summer golf league. Retired life is wonderful, most of the time. I travel, date a bit, exercise, and go to the shore in the summers.
Doris Anderson Mather writes, “My husband and I celebrated our fourth anniversary this past fall. We are enjoying traveling and gathering with our 18 grandchildren. We spent the month of September sightseeing in Glacier, Banff, Columbia Ice Fields, Yellowstone and Grand Tetons National Parks. It was a glorious trip with great weather. I would recommend September because of reduced crowds.”
Ron and Fran Goecker Spaulding retired to the Renaissance in Manchester, N.J., in November 2005. “Our kids are in northern New Jersey about two hours away. Our neighbors’ children and our children went to high school together. Such a small world. We have two grandsons, ages 8 and 2. Our daughter, Caren, will undergo a double mastectomy, so we will be up north for a few months to help. Our porch overlooks the golf course where Ron plays a lot. I had a hip replacement in May. What a relief—I am pain free!”
Sally Anthony visited Baltimore with a friend for a few days this month. “It was a beautiful place!”
