Last spring, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) in Rome questioned the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) for some of its work with a social justice lobby, Network. At the same time, although unrelated, the CDF also questioned Sister Margaret Farley, RSM, a Yale ethicist, for her book Just Love, saying that her academic inquiry did not convey Catholic teaching. Across the Atlantic, people felt, at the very least, that the timing of the CDF was off or that it lacked communication sensitivity in a Church wounded by the clerical sexual abuse crisis. Catholics of all stripes around the United States affirmed the value and importance of religious sisters in our religious history, talking with love and affection about the work they have done in this country teaching, healing, and helping countless human beings. Both Catholic and secular media picked up the story. To his credit, while many bishops were silent, our own Archbishop, Cardinal Seán O’Malley, OFM, Cap., lamented the perception that the Church does not welcome women. “It’s a great concern,” he said to a Boston Globe reporter. “The last thing the church needs is more controversies. As we try to evangelize people, we are trying to get them to focus on the centrality of Christ and trying to promote family life and service to the poor, and I see these things as great distractions sometimes.” This summer, Sister Simone Campbell and other Sisters from Network launched “Nuns on the Bus,” a lobbying campaign that traveled from the Midwest to Washington, D.C., visiting soup kitchens, homeless shelters, and congressional offices to point out the social service work of Catholic sisters and protest the House Republican budget. On September 5, Sister Simone made a well-received presentation at the Democratic National Convention in which she affirmed Catholic social teachings the bishops also affirm. I thought of the Dominican sisters who taught me in my childhood and the Sisters of Saint Joseph I have known in over 27 years of service at Regis College. I also thought of the Sister of Notre Dame who serves on our Board, and of Sister Clare Dawson, C.P., whom our students have known in her mission in Villa El Salvador, Peru, through seven years of community service trips. Recently I had the pleasure of meeting Sister Mary Owens, IBVM, who operates the pioneer and premier orphanage in Nyumbani, Kenya, where a number of our students and faculty visited in May as part of the Christian Immersion experience sponsored by our friend, Kathryn Erat. Politics aside, the Sisters we know are highly educated and accomplished women who, with faith, hope, and charity, address the realities of families needing food, children and elders who have been socially abandoned, immigrants caught by human trafficking, the poor trying to make ends meet, and generations of students struggling to get an education, accepting all, as the CSJs put it, as “dear neighbors,” without distinction. This work, too, is what American religious freedom is about and holds a worthy place among the aims of Catholic liberal education. I am proud to be one of the Sisters’ heirs in the great transition from religious orders to lay leadership in American Catholic colleges and universities. Here at Regis, we all salute you, Sisters. You are the salt of the earth and we strive to follow in your footsteps. Antoinette M. Hays, PhD, RN PRESIDENT

Dressing for Meaning Early this fall, the Carney Gallery exhibited two artists who reinterpreted familiar objects in a new way: Virginia Fitzgerald and David Lang. Fitzgerald, who in 2006 began The Dress Project, has created well over 400 dresses in wildly divergent media. Many of the dress sculptures have deep meaning for her and others. “In Memory Of,” on exhibit at Carney [right] contains dog tags and photographs of soldiers killed in Iraq. Another, “Dear Jeff,” [bottom right] was commissioned by a man whose wife was killed in the Twin Towers during 9/11. Others are more whimsical. Fitzgerald has recently been making little origami dresses on which she writes fortunes, like “May this dress bring you peace,” and she places them in random public spots. “The dress is my soapbox,” said Fitzgerald. “I hope to add a little joy, happiness, lightness into our life.”

“Eat Your Vegetables,” went in the crock pot for dinner.

“Wedding Dress,” the first official dress of The Dress Project, was made on Wells Beach, Maine.

Inset: The bottom of the dress is a tangle of wires adorned with mini dog tags onto which are attached photos of dead soldiers.

Kenya Connection This fall, Regis welcomed special guest Sister Mary Owens, IBVM, a psychologist and the director of the pioneer orphanage for children with HIV in Nyumbani, Kenya. It is the largest such facility in Kenya and offers unparalleled medical, educational, and social benefits to the more than 100 children who live there. A Regis group had visited Nyumbani in the spring as part of an academic seminar with a focus on health. They were led by Professor Nancy Bittner, Associate Professor Lauress Wilkins, and former lecturer Lorna Rinear. Father Angelo D’Agostino, SJ, founded the orphanage 20 years ago Sister Mary Owens in the village of Nyumbani and, despite many obstacles, he succeeded in developing a thriving home for children and in keeping the village and its network of families intact. At the time of the founding, the village had lost many adults due to AIDS, leaving only elders and children. As Sister Mary Owens put it in an anniversary newsletter, “through Father D’Agostino’s faith in God’s guidance, courage in the face of misunderstanding, and perseverance despite betrayal, his vision for Nyumbani has been realized beyond what even he envisaged at the foundation.”

PRAYERS & CONDOLENCES and lacrosse co-captain Michael Kaplan ’13 from Braintree. Peter Leighton ’15 of Wilmington was seriously injured in the motorcycle crash but is recovering, and we will soon welcome him back to campus. The College has experienced a great outpouring of faculty and staff concern. Our students’ outreach to each other, both undergraduate and graduate, united them in community participation at memorials on campus and wakes and funerals in greater Boston and in the embrace of

Darner’s and Michael’s families. On October 2 we postponed the celebration of Founders’ Day and the Cap and Gown Investiture of our senior class, which mark the heritage and values of the Sisters of St. Joseph. In reality, however, our grieving campus has been living those values of inclusiveness and excellence with gentleness that come from a profound encounter with the love of neighbor and what it reveals about our humanity and the love of God. May Michael and Darner rest in peace.

During the week of September 20–27, the Regis College community suffered two devastating losses and undertook a remarkable journey of grief and love. A car accident on the evening of Thursday, September 20, took the life of Darner Alteon ’14, a well-known and well-respected junior and track runner, on his way home to Milton after attending a poetry reading on campus. A week later, a Thursday afternoon motorcycle crash on nearby Chestnut Street killed much-loved biology major

“Watershed Moment” for Haiti Project Twelve Haitian nursing professors have returned to Haiti after spending six weeks at Regis taking master-level courses and shadowing nurses at local Boston hospitals as part of the Regis College Haiti Project. After two years, the project is still going strong; and with a grant from the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund, its future is assured. A collaboration among the Regis College School of Nursing, Science and Health Professions, Haiti’s Ministry of Health, and the University of Haiti, this innovative program’s goal is to educate nursing leaders in Haiti, who will go on to continue to teach the next generation of Haitian nurses. “It has been a personal honor to work with such an incredible group of global nursing leaders, and I am incredibly pleased that— thanks to a generous $462,800 grant from the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund—we will have the opportunity to continue this partnership for years to come,” said Sheila Davis, Director of Global Nursing for PIH.

An App for the Pap Women’s Health Goes High-Tech By RACHeL MORTON

6 REGIS TODAY 31409p06-07.indd 6

For 23 years, Stacy Christensen has heard just about every misconception in the book about Pap Tests. Does cervical cancer run in the family? Many women think it does, but it does not. Does a Pap screen for STDs? No, it only screens for one STD—HPV (Human Papillomavirus). Women contract that virus through unprotected sex, and 99 percent of all cervical cancer is caused by HPV. Will a Pap screen for cancer of the ovaries or the uterus? No, it only screens for cancer of the cervix. A nurse practitioner in Connecticut, Christensen has done “probably thousands” of Paps. She is also in a tenure-track teaching position at Central Connecticut State University, and she has a family— a husband and two boys, 15 and 18. So her plate is full, but she has made it even fuller. For the past two years, Christensen has been commuting to Regis to attend the DNP (Doctor of Nursing Practice) program. For her Capstone Project this year, she decided to address those common Pap Test misconceptions by creating an informative tool to help women understand the Pap and their gynecological health. Her teaching vehicle is not a book or an article, an infomercial or a website. It’s a mobile app. Called “MyPapp,” it helps educate women about the Pap Test and teaches them about female anatomy. It is an easy to use, interactive application that is free and can be used in the privacy of one’s own home. Christensen is by no means a computer expert, so creating an application was a difficult hurdle to surmount. But a nursing informatics class spurred her interest in the project—health informatics is all about technology and health, two fields that

are rapidly intertwining as the health profession attempts to improve patient outcomes through the use of technology. To build a computer application, most people hire programming professionals and pay many thousands of dollars to turn their ideas into applications. Christensen didn’t have those kinds of resources, so she sought help from a professor at Trinity College, Dr. Ralph Morelli, who had experience with a program called App Inventor. He helped her work her way through programming a computer application. “I never thought I could do it,” Christensen admits. “But I did it with a free program and I did it myself.” She also created the app in Spanish because in her culture class she learned that Hispanic women have a much higher chance of dying of cervical cancer. The result received immediate attention. Christensen was invited to present MyPapp at an App Inventor Summit at MIT this summer. “I’m not a computer geek so I was living proof that someone like myself could use this programing platform.” She coauthored a paper with Dr. Morelli that was accepted for publication in CIN: The Journal of Computers, Informatics, and Nursing. Christensen recently presented MyPapp in a poster presentation at the national DNP conference in St. Louis. And MyPapp was recognized among the “100 Best of 2012 Nurse Practitioner Round-Up” by the Online Nurse Practitioner Programs website. People involved with health education understand that this kind of private, personal access to sensitive health information could be of great benefit to women. For where do women learn about their bodies, about what happens in a gynecologist’s office? Some women

might have attended health classes when they were girls, but most depend upon the information they get at a doctor’s office. And the atmosphere could not be less conducive to learning there—especially for a young woman going in for the first time. “You go in for your first exam,” Christensen says. “you are sitting on crinkly paper and you are a basket case.” She explains that patients retain probably 10 to 15 percent of what they hear in a doctor visit. So even if the Pap is explained, the chances that a woman remembers and takes that information away with her is remote. Plus many women are reluctant to ask

questions regarding the gynecological exam because of embarrassment. So there’s a lot to learn, and to un-learn, and Christensen has got that covered with her friendly, interactive MyPapp application, which can be downloaded for free onto a smartphone or other electronic device via the Android program. (It is currently not yet available for download on Apple products.) The informal feedback has been very positive so far. “One woman said she learned things she’d never dared ask her provider because she was so embarrassed by what she didn’t know,” says Christensen, who thinks women like the privacy and ease of use. “It’s not your Angry Birds or fancy apps like that,” she laughs, “but it is very interactive. you tap on the ovary and it says, ‘This is the ovary—it releases eggs.’ ” Christensen’s Capstone Project represented a great blend of nursing knowledge and technology expertise—the kind of interdisciplinary effort that is becoming increasingly important in the health field. “This Capstone has been a phenomenal experience,” says Christensen. “It exceeded all my expectations.”

Historian Makes It Personal Raffaele Florio builds foundations under “Castles in the Sky”


What got you interested in studying history?

When did you decide to become a teacher?

I grew up on Federal Hill in Providence which (although it’s pretty trendy now) 40 years ago was what I guess you’d call a very ethnic neighborhood. I was always that kid that actually wanted to hear the older generation tell their stories about their experiences in diverse regions of southern Italy. This was a tremendous cultural experience for me that certainly had an impact on my own sense of identity. By the time I was in high school it became pretty clear that the study of history would become my path. I was an active member of the local historical society before I could even drive. I was fascinated with things like landscape as a form of memory and began to really see the importance of historic preservation. But at the same time I always knew that it was the stories that gave life to these things. Objects do tell stories and as long as there were people willing to add to the narrative which might help uncover those stories, I was willing to listen.

Italy opened my eyes to a whole new way of viewing history. It also caused me to hate just about every history course I took after that point. Though I completed my degree a few years later, the following September, rather than going back to Providence College, I started working in construction doing mostly carpentry work and painting. With construction paying the majority of the bills, I tried my hand at several things—teaching middle school social studies for a few years, designing educational technology for a software developer, taking on historic preservation jobs, starting an interior design business which focused on historic reproduction, teaching in a tech school, and eventually teaching in college (at Salve Regina University and Community College of Rhode Island). It stopped there. I knew I had found it. And other than a minor setback—a year of treatment and recovery for cancer in 2005—I made it work.

I think the experience that changed my life forever was my summer in Italy. I fell in love with the history, but more with the heritage. You just can’t escape it there. Everyone and everything has a story to tell. I found that those old timers in Providence who told stories of the old country weren’t “Italian”—they were Neopolitan, Sicilian, Calabresi, etc. Even the language we spoke in the neighborhood—which I always believed to be Italian until I travelled through Italy trying to use it!—barely resembled Italy’s national language. It was a linguistic hybrid of southern dialects—which my later studies revealed to be hybrids of the dialects that preceded them—and broken English. I was a hybrid. We were a hybrid. Yet we all had this odd notion of collective identity, even if it was in many ways invented and in a sense connected back to what is essentially an imagined geography.

31409p08-11.indd 8

I was asked this question when I first arrived here and jokingly I responded that the two faculty members who interviewed me, Sister Betty Cawley and Ernie Collamati, “had me at hello!” I dropped everything for Regis. It was one of those indescribable moments when you sort of just know. I guess I should apologize up front for my romantic view of life, but I saw this opportunity at Regis metaphorically as someone handing me a blank canvas and a set of brushes directing me to create what I had always envisioned, or to paraphrase Thoreau, to build foundations under the castles I had built in the sky. I remember Russ Pottle, the dean who hired me, said in my last interview: “Now you need to understand, this isn’t your garden-variety faculty position.” And all I could think was: “SOLD!”

questions &

Can you describe your approach to history?


In the first couple of years my program’s motto was: “Regis College is changing history!” And it really was. My approach to history is based on a hybrid model that borrows heavily from the field of anthropology, but really stretches across the traditional liberal arts disciplines. My own graduate education was an interdisciplinary one and my most influential professors and mentors were very progressive; their courses were based largely in post-modern theoretical models, and this approach becomes very visible in the work I do. I try to engage the historical narrative holistically. I see the written record as one form of historical artifact and believe that it is essential to put that record in conversation with other historical artifacts —things like material culture (art, architecture, landscape, textiles, archaeological artifacts, etc.); alternative forms of written culture (literature and poetry); and cultural artifacts, essentially cultural memory (folklore, oral tradition, and personal narratives, prayers, rituals, etc.). This approach brings the study outside of the archives and requires fieldwork, ethnography, and oral history in addition to a different kind of interpretation—a more open-ended, holistic one. If you could live in another culture and another time, what would that be and why?

Okay, this is totally a selfish reason. I’d love to go back to the Cilento Coast of Italy in the ninth century. I’m dying to know if my theories about the religious culture of that place and time are even close to what was really there. Who knows? I could be way off base! One caveat—once I have my answer, I’d want to come back!

Oh my goodness! God bless the person who would have the ill fate of analyzing my personal history! It’s just so, I don’t know, circuitous I guess you might say. I’m a strange mix of curious—adventurous even, academic, yet totally blue collar, both intellectual (even contemplative at times) and downright silly. I am not sure I know what I want to be when I grow up! My circle of friends contains the most ridiculous cast of characters—of course I use that term in an endearing way. I think I’d confuse the daylights out of anyone analyzing my history.

31409p08-11.indd 10

What is your current research project?

Years ago, I started working on a project in an amazingly picturesque fishing village, Castellabate, in southwest Italy. I was there researching the Castle of the Abbot, a typical Norman-era fortified settlement built in the early 12th century by a Benedictine Abbot who served as the ecclesiastical baron there. The region was essentially untouched by American scholars and I was there to tell the story of power relations between the Normans, their Benedictine administrators, local merchants, and the town’s inhabitants. I found everything I needed to tell this story but it was in every way your standard “garden variety” historical narrative.

If you were analyzing your own personal history, what threads would you identify and study?

10/19/12 4:03 PM

“This approach brings the study outside of the archives and requires

fieldwork, ethnography, and oral history.”

31409p08-11.indd 11

When you are not involved in history (teaching, researching, etc.) what do you like to do?

I can say that family is the most important thing in my life. I am fortunate that my wife and 10-year old son share many of the same interests—and my one-and-a-half year old daughter is too young to argue about it! They entertain my tendency to drag them around to various museums and heritage sites. When it comes to eating dinner, I’d like to think they get their reward for putting up with me. I love to cook and will actually spend hours food shopping. I pride myself on putting on the table (again, what I’d like to believe is) a gourmet dinner every night (unless of course if I’m teaching a night course— then it’s take-out!). Besides that I really love the outdoors. I enjoy the landscape and find something to do in just about every season—whether it’s fishing, hunting, mushrooming, or something more mundane like riding my Harley through country roads, or even just chasing my beagles through the woods! But I’d argue that even these things connect back somehow to my heritage. These are things that I’ve inherited. One of my favorite, in fact, is wine making. I am happy to know that I am carrying on something that would have otherwise been lost in my generation.

11 FALL 12

After speaking with some of the elderly fishermen who, from nearby benches, gazed out at the boats pulling in the day’s catch, I stumbled into the historical conundrum that forever changed me as a scholar. These men told me tales of mermaids, shipwrecks, and a courageous mariner who was cast into the sea only to be saved by the town’s patroness, Saint Mary of the Sea. One guy, who voluntarily disclosed himself as illiterate, essentially recited, in the Cilentan dialect (which is an amazing sociolinguistic study in itself), book five of Homer’s Odyssey. I spent the next year studying the earliest Greek settlements on that particular coast and traced some of the cults and rituals associated with that area through the Roman period and into the early Medieval. The written record essentially begins with the Benedictine arrival, and as one might guess the material record confirms major changes in terms of veneration at that point. I guess the rest is history—for me anyway. I began employing the methods I had learned from anthropology and using some of the models employed by the early ethnohistorians who were working with the Native American populations in the southwestern United States. Over the years I’ve adopted, perhaps adapted would be a better term, these strategies hoping to fill in the very obvious gaps in written history and attempting to circumvent some of the particularly lopsided aspects of the formal narrative. It fit. It worked. It became the model I use with my students today at Regis. A few years ago Castellabate was named as one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites, and almost immediately following a very influential movie, Benvento al Sud (Welcome to the South), was filmed there. What resulted is a researcher’s dream; although, it might also be seen as a native villager’s nightmare. The landscape, at pace with the new

economy, is changing drastically. The marina is full of foreign yachts while small fishing vessels, once a source of self-sufficiency, have disappeared. The language has changed. Sustainability in both cultural terms and economic terms is challenged. Even the public historians there have begun marketing their books on “local history” to the tourists. The poetry, the music, and the festivals all tell a rather lamenting tale. What was gained? And at what price? The project does more than provide context for our students. It provides tools that can be adapted to life in New England and beyond that. Last year we found similar conditions right here in Gloucester. Our students responded to the call for help. They collected the oral histories and recorded the narratives describing the plight of New England fishermen and the impact of tourism on the landscape. This history was then converted into a musical by Professor Wendy Lement and her theatre students here at Regis and it was a huge success.

ecelia Harmon-Rogers ’85 sat alone in the dark on a cold street bench, numb inside and sad to her core. It was November 1985, and the new college graduate and aspiring banking/finance professional had just finished a routine work day in downtown Boston while at that very moment, in a cruel twist of fate, her father was being buried thousands of miles away in Monrovia, Liberia. Over the next two decades, Liberia would continue to be a source of unimaginable heartache for Harmon-Rogers. The West African country, created with promise by freed American slaves and characterized by lush tropical rainforests and a colorful indigenous culture, would be nearly destroyed by two horrific civil wars and rampant government corruption. Fourteen years of strife would leave Liberia’s economy in ruins, healthcare and education at a standstill, the capital city without water or electricity, and 250,000 people dead. But the women of Liberia never gave up hope during those tumultuous years. Under the leadership of Liberia’s first female president, Nobel Peace Prize winner Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, elected in 2005, Liberian women fought peacefully for their beloved homeland. They are credited with Liberia’s fragile rebirth and tenuous stability. Harmon-Rogers is one of these women. Her journey began quietly enough, in typical teenage fashion. “Buff,” as Harmon-Rogers is known to family and friends, was living in Liberia and deciding on a college. Her police director father, a Michigan State University alumnus, wanted something small and safe for the third of his eight children. “My aunt graduated from Regis in the 1950s and the wife of Liberia’s former secretary of state was a graduate,” said HarmonRogers about the Liberia-Regis connection. Two cousins, Sharon Cooper and Lafayetta Harmon, graduated from Regis as well. (Lafayetta is deceased and Sharon is currently the UNHCR special representative to Ghana.) “I wasn’t thrilled about the all-girl thing,” she laughed. “But I had never ventured outside of Africa and was ready for an adventure. I was excited to go to America, a place I had heard about my entire life. We grew up reading about the U.S. and watching American TV shows. I visited Regis in March and still remember my tour guide vividly and how beautiful the campus was. I was so excited when I received my acceptance letter.”

Thanksgiving and Christmas. During the summer months, Harmon-Rogers scrambled to find a place to live, writing letters to extended family members in New York and Virginia in search of a place to stay. “This was very unsettling. I couldn’t wait to get back to Regis where life was stable,” she said. She flourished there, majoring in economics and establishing close friendships with classmates and faculty. Sister Zita Fleming, then dean of students, provided much-needed guidance. “She made my experience bearable and became a motherpresence to me,” Harmon-Rogers said. Sister Zita remembers a young woman, “full of light and love and fun.” Classmate Keegan was struck by Harmon-Rogers’ inquisitive and pensive nature and Harpley Brukilacchio recalls a chance meeting freshman year that developed into a lifelong kinship. “Harpley/Harmon: We shared a mailbox,” she said. Ever self-reliant, Harmon-Rogers secured a part-time job as a bookkeeper with a Boston real estate firm and learned to navigate the MBTA with ease. Sometimes exploration was necessary. “There weren’t any Weston hairdressers who could cut black hair so I had to find one,” she said of her trips to an ethnic hair salon in Copley Square. On other occasions, she served as the unofficial tour guide for her American and Puerto Rican friends. “There I was the foreigner and the Boston expert,” she chuckled. Graduation was bittersweet. HarmonRogers reunited briefly with her visiting mother and then moved on to the next phase of her life in the States. She accepted a permanent job with the real estate company and moved into a sixbedroom house in Newton with Harpley Brukilacchio and several Regis classmates. And then the news arrived that Harmon-Rogers’ father, Edwin, had died. “My mother told me not to come home for the funeral. It was unsafe to travel in Liberia after another attempted military coup. I hadn’t seen my father in four years and now he was gone,” she said. HarmonRogers detected loneliness in her mother’s voice when they spoke by phone every Sunday. She quit her job and booked her airline ticket.

Harmon-Rogers’ family was part of Liberia’s Americo-Liberian group, an estimated 5 percent of the population who descended from freed slaves. Her ancestors trace back to a plantation in Delaware and Gibson Island and South Baltimore in Maryland. In 1819, the United States Congress appropriated $100,000 for the establishment of Liberia by the American Colonization Society, led by prominent Americans such as Henry Clay, Daniel Webster, and President James Monroe, for whom the capital city is named. The first group of settlers arrived in 1820 and in 1847 founded the Republic of Liberia, establishing a government modeled on that of the United States, one that advocated freedom and equality. Liberia continued to modernize throughout the 20th century with American assistance and displayed high rates of economic growth throughout the 1950s, thanks to foreign investment. Actively involved in international affairs, Liberia was a founding member of the United Nations and a vocal critic of South African apartheid. The political and economic climate in Liberia remained relatively calm throughout Harmon-Rogers’ youth. She recalls a middle-class upbringing filled with laughter and delicious African cuisine courtesy of her mother, Sylvia, a professional chef. Later, as Harmon-Rogers settled into college life in tranquil Weston, Mass., turmoil began brewing in Liberia. In a military coup, Samuel Doe of the Krahn tribal group overthrew the Americo-Liberian leadership in 1980, murdering President William Tolbert and executing his cabinet. Far from the upheaval of her homeland, Harmon-Rogers felt the personal pressure of familial expectation. “My parents made a major financial sacrifice so that I could study abroad and I didn’t want to let them down,” she said. “The last words my father said to me in person were: ‘We are depending on you.’ ” This sentiment resonated with Harmon-Rogers and gave her strength during the four years she lived apart from her family. “Holidays were hard,” she admitted, recalling classmates such as Mary Crimmins Adgate ’84, Linda Moroni ’83, Sarah Harpley Brukilacchio ’85, and Peggy Keegan ’84 who opened their homes on

Though waves of discontent echoed throughout Liberia in the late ’80s, Harmon-Rogers was happy there and acclimated quickly. She got a job with Citibank in customer service and was promoted to the treasury department. She married William Rogers. But life was about to change forever. Rebels from the National Patriotic Front of Liberia led by Charles Taylor launched an insurrection against Doe’s government in 1989, leading to the first Liberian civil war. The economy came to a grinding halt, Citibank closed down, and the capital city of Monrovia, where she and her family lived, fell under siege. “Overnight our community became a war zone,” she said. “Armed rebels pulled us from our homes by force. They were fully armed—hand grenades strapped across their chests, waving machetes in the air, high on drugs, and dressed crazily in women’s dresses and army boots. They dragged thousands of people into the street, people from different neighborhoods and tribal groups, and forced us to walk miles in a single line. Along the road, people lay dead and dying, bodies bloated and unrecognizable. But we couldn’t react, couldn’t grieve, or the rebels would kill us. They didn’t want witnesses. I kept my expression passive as I memorized the faces of the dead so I could tell their families.” Harmon-Rogers trudged along with her mother and husband, their only solace that the two youngest Harmons were not with them. “I sent them out of the country before the invasion,” Harmon-Rogers explained. “I’d heard that rebels were

abducting and raping young girls and my sister was a teenager. My brother was 6' 4" and often mistaken for an American. He would be killed on sight.” As the ragtag army led the terrorized Liberian families, one of the rebels took a closer look at William and pulled him out of line to be shot. “He accused my husband of being from a particular tribe, said his features resembled that group. Another rebel pointed out scars on William’s ankle, insisting they marked him as a government soldier,” she recalled. “He’s no soldier,” she told them with a laugh. “Just a clumsy soccer player who was kicked in the ankles.” Seven times she boldly intervened, Bible in hand, and with humor convinced them otherwise. Harmon-Rogers and her family, along with 30 other people, were sequestered in a 10-by-15 foot office at the overtaken University of Liberia’s Fendel Campus. They remained there for four months with no electricity or running water. Day and night they heard piercing screams and constant gunfire. There was no privacy and rebel interrogations were frequent. “We pooled our money and gave it to my mother. She scrounged for food and tried her best to make our one meal appetizing. But there was never enough,” said Harmon-Rogers, who was pregnant with twins. “I had no medical care and terrible morning sickness,” she said. Harmon-Rogers’ one possession, her Bible, became the kidnapped groups’ lifeline. Using her trademark sense of humor and enthusiasm, Harmon-Rogers taught an informal Bible studies class. “I became the encourager. People depended on me to keep them going,” she said. “Knowing that I was needed lifted a weight off my shoulders. I had a job to do.” Charles Taylor’s rebels soon split into opposing factions and in-fighting broke out. The Economic Community of West African States, led by Nigeria, intervened. They organized a military peacekeeping force and released the campus captives. Harmon-Rogers and her family returned to their desolate Monrovia neighborhood and found their home empty. “There was nothing left. The rebels had stripped it bare. They’d taken everything: our cars, furniture, clothes,” she said, noting with

a group of 3,000 Christian and Muslim Liberian women who staged nonviolent protests. Documented in the film, Pray the Devil Back to Hell, these ordinary women, dressed in white to symbolize peace, became an unshakeable political force and spurred the democratic election of the first female president in Africa, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. Harmon-Rogers attributes her country’s resurgence to the peaceful negotiations of Harvard-trained economist Sirleaf. “After accumulating three billion dollars in debt, Liberia is now a credit-worthy, debt-free nation,” said Harmon-Rogers. “Development and reconstruction is happening. Liberians who were forced to leave are returning, reconnecting with their communities and bringing back the professional training they’ve received in other countries. The infrastructure of roads, electricity, hospitals, and schools are being rebuilt. Progress is slow and sometimes frustrating, but it is steady.” From her Maryland home, HarmonRogers reflected on her war-torn years in Liberia. Now a senior pastor with Harvest Ministries International, Harmon-Rogers is philosophical and grateful, and said her first-hand experience with civil war changed her life. “Tension always existed between indigenous tribal groups and settlers like me, but war brought us together. In that tiny university office, we suffered as one, we became allies.” She is confident that Liberia is, as she writes, “on the verge of redefining herself as a nation of people emerging from a critical historical correction that should realign her destiny in a very positive way.” President Sirleaf echoed this belief in her commencement address at Harvard University’s 2011 graduation: “Today, we are proud that young Liberian children are back in school, preparing themselves to play a productive part in the new Liberian society. Our seven-year-olds do not hear guns and do not have to run. They can smile again,” she said. “We can thus say with confidence that we have moved our war-torn nation from turmoil to peace, from disaster to development, from dismay to hope.”

surprise that her wedding dress remained, hanging alone in a closet. With no functioning medical facilities and a blossoming pregnancy, HarmonRogers knew she must leave the country. Her aunt struck a deal. “She gave a group of soldiers her house in return for transportation to a port where we boarded a ship to Ghana,” said HarmonRogers. When they got to Ghana, the twins, Leopold and Maggie, were born and the Rogers family eked out a meager existence with financial support from family living abroad. But they always wanted to return home. So when word reached the Rogers’ that Monrovian banks had reopened, they returned to Liberia. It was a brief landing. Every time a new chaos erupted, they went back to their rented house in Ghana. “After our third child, Edwina, was born we realized we couldn’t continue this upand-down life, as much as we loved our country,” she said. The family moved to the Ivory Coast after another eruption and then immigrated to the United States in 2000 where many Harmon siblings lived. William began working at the Ryder Transportation System as a diesel truck technician, Harmon-Rogers at the University of Maryland and later at the Liberian Embassy in Washington, D.C. She is still there today, serving as the finance and administrative officer and overseeing human resources. Responsible for issuing visas and renewing passports, she is a staunch advocate for Liberia and is filled with hope for the country’s future and her place in it, due in large part to the 2011 re-election of Sirleaf, who also happens to be her godmother. Under Charles Taylor’s dictatorship, Liberia had gained a reputation as a corrupt country where brutality and anarchy reigned. He stepped down as president in 2003 and in a landmark ruling in 2012, an international tribunal found Taylor guilty of aiding and abetting war crimes in neighboring Sierra Leone’s brutal civil war. He was sentenced to 50 years in jail. Taylor’s fall from power was hastened by intense pressure from the international community as well as the Women of Liberia Mass Action for Peace movement,

Finding Herself



hile at the dentist’s office several years ago, Mary Crane Fahey ’64 was absently thumbing through a magazine when she came upon an image that made

her do a double take. The photograph by Garry Winogrand was entitled World’s Fair,

New York 1964, and it showed six young women sitting on a bench, waiting for a bus. What drew her eye was a dress. “It was blue with a Kelly green stripe down the center. She recognized that dress—“I wore that dress to death.” She also recognized the handbag—her first Etienne Aigner bag. “Oh my God, that’s me!” she thought. “That’s us!” Seated on the bench with Fahey was her Regis roommate Barbara Bye, and their classmates Louise Brennan, Karen Johnson, Audrey Dalton, and Fredda Callaghan. It was 1964, and they had just graduated from Regis and were on a whirlwind one-day trip to New York City to see the World’s Fair. “We were all exhausted,” she remembers. “It was a full day, coming from Boston to New York, doing the Fair, and going all the way back. On the bus ride home, we all conked out.”

31409p18-19.indd 18

Fahey tore the photo from the magazine, tucked it away, and eventually lost track of it. A few years later, while visiting her daughter and son-in-law, who is a photographer, she was reading an issue of Aperture—a photography magazine—when she saw the photograph again. This time Fahey did some research and called the Fraenkel Gallery in San Francisco, where Winogrand’s work is represented. She told them who she was. “I am not a nut,” she recalls telling the curator of the gallery, “but that photograph is of me and my Regis College classmates.”

Winogrand is widely regarded as one of the premiere “street photographers” of his time. He liked to shoot in cities, in crowds, snapping moments in time. And he liked shooting women. “I am subjective in what I photograph,” Winogrand said in a 1982 WNYC series called Creativity hosted by Bill Moyers. “Women interest me. How they look, how they move, their energy.” Many of his photographs of women were gathered in a book called Women are Beautiful—a book Fahey hopes to add to her collection one day, since this photo is among them.

Unlike many photographers of today, he never asked for his subjects’ permission, and probably most of them—like Fahey—had no idea they were even being photographed. So that should have been the end of it. But it wasn’t. Last year, Fahey was reading The Boston Globe and there it was, World’s Fair, New York 1964, illustrating a photography exhibit opening at the Museum of Fine Arts. This was obviously a message from the universe for Fahey to get to the MFA and see the photograph in person. This time,

31409p18-19.indd 19

Fahey asked to meet in person with the curator, Karen Haas. “You have to know that this is a very, very famous picture,” Haas told Fahey. “It has hung all over the world.” The curator suggested that Fahey gather as many of her old classmates as she could for a photograph at the MFA exhibit. Only two of her friends— Barbara Bye Murdock and Karen Johnson Celi—were able to make the trip to Boston (Freda Callaghan Megan is deceased). The three women posed in front of the famous photograph, and The Boston Globe ran the

photograph with a little story on June 19, 2011, entitled “Fair Reunion.” So what does it feel like to be the subject of a famous photograph? “It’s fun and so amazing to know that we six Regis girls have ‘traveled’ all around the world!” says Fahey. Though he died in 1984 at the age of 56, Winogrand’s works are still widely exhibited, and his photographs are the subject of art scholarship.

Nearly 50 years after she and her Regis classmates went to the World’s Fair, Mary Crane Fahey ’64 saw herself in the very famous photograph, World’s Fair, New York City 1964 by Garry Winogrand.

Thinking forward. A look at Regis College’s strategic plan.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

10/19/12 4:23 PM

Thinking forward >>>>

he past quarter century has been a tough time for many small liberal arts colleges. Many of those who have not adapted have been forced to close their doors. Others are surviving, barely—a shadow of their former selves.


Though Regis went through its own difficult years, the college is now thriving and ambitiously moving forward with a new strategic plan that presents a clear vision for the future. “There has been a culture shift in the way Regis is doing business,” says President Toni Hays. “We are in a strategic planning mindset versus a surviving mindset. We look for opportunities. We are thinking forward.” President Hays presented her vision recently in a five-year plan that would build on the core identity and mission of Regis, while initiating some exciting new areas that position the college well in a changing world. “Who is Regis? What is Regis?” asks President Hays. “It’s the sum of its people and their experiences.” It is facilities and curriculum, athletics and outreach, and charisma. “It is what makes up Regis as an entity and an experience.” She articulates three main goals that intersect and overlap and all work together to define and build Regis’ character. Those goals can simply be described as enlarging and strengthening our community, cultivating and building on our mission, and creating a strong fiscal underpinning for both. Regis already has a vibrant and diverse community of students and faculty. President Hays wants that community to grow and she sees new opportunities to expand Regis’ works and horizons with partnerships—

in education, nonprofit, and business sectors—and in the local communities and abroad. These partnerships will increase internship, service, and mentorship opportunities for students. Because students are increasingly drawn to interdisciplinary programs, and this blending of disciplines is becoming more relevant in the job market, President Hays’ plan calls for the creation of new interdisciplinary graduate programs. She also envisions new, incisive strategies in Catholic and interfaith studies to help ease interfaith conflict here and abroad and a new Institute for Global Connections. These initiatives will expand the expression of the character and community of Regis. This fall, President Hays has also begun the massive technological upgrade that will make the whole campus a classroom without walls by distributing iPads to all faculty and students and upgrading the Wi-Fi by 500 percent.

Her plans for upgrading the facility itself are also ambitious, including developing the East Campus and modernizing existing buildings. Maintaining a beautiful, modern campus will help attract new students. But to attract those students, Regis needs to tell its story, and for that a strong communications component is part of the president’s vision for the next five years. “We need to get our light out from under the bushel basket,” she says. “The world needs to know about this wonderful institution.” President Hays’ enthusiasm for Regis and for its future is evident. “I can see clearly how this all fits,” she exclaims, pointing

to those three goals—community, character, and financial support. “Developing these centers and programs, creating the international footprint, building relationships, becoming a sophisticated technological institution—it’s all part of our character, part of our community, and will ultimately bolster financial engagement. “I don’t think our alumni are as afraid of change as they are of not changing. There is enthusiasm and excitement as they see Regis thriving,” she says. “The vision is that Regis will become a signature institution in New England and beyond.”

iPads for all! at the start of the fall semester, Regis College, in one giant digital leap, purchased 1,250 iPads and distributed them to all full-time students and faculty. The half-amillion-dollar investment will increase collaboration among students and faculty and turn classrooms into dexterous labs of learning. needless to say, recipients of the iPads were enthusiastic. “The way I see it now is that the iPad is groundbreaking in the classroom for those who take advantage of it,” says Jonathan Chen, a Resident assistant. He cites its convenience for note-taking, organizing material, and as a small repository for everything necessary for class. “The convenience is just priceless.” But it goes way beyond mere convenience. More than a dozen faculty have been working with iPads to incorporate digital pedagogy into their curriculum design. The iPads handed out this fall came with apps tailored to the Regis learning community to make them useful in course work, interactive class discussions, and in-class research. “It’s not only about the tools, it’s about the pedagogical innovation,” says President Hays. She says that “Interactive and participatory teaching and learning are part of the new digital world, and Regis is positioned to become a leader in this arena.” andrea Humphrey, a professor of English at Regis,

also use the Keynote app to produce multimedia presentations on the material they’re learning, Humphrey says. Even more apparent is its usefulness in the health fields, where nearly all aspects of a patient’s history and treatment are part of a digital record. “Higher education is catching up to the interactivity of healthcare and business in our digital age,” says Dean Penelope Glynn of the School of nursing, Science and Health Professions.

move-in day

10/19/12 4:30 PM


Every timE a car put on its blinker, poised to enter campus from

Wellesley Street, the group of maroon- and gold-clad students erupted into cheers, waving pom-poms in the air. Did the high spirits and rah-rah atmosphere signal a Homecoming game? No, but Sunday, September 2, was a homecoming of sorts—it was move-in day for 200 incoming freshmen about to make a new home at Regis College.

the parking lot towards her new dormitory. Landis, who grew up in Natick, plans to major in nursing. Diante Hopkins was also excited to move into his new digs, eager to start the next chapter of his life. The Milton High School graduate says he was drawn to Regis because of its location and financial aid. His plan is to immerse himself in business classes. One day he hopes to open his own clothing store. For some families, move-in day was not a simple trip down I-95. Some had day-long journeys to make. Even though it was 10 a.m., it had already been a long day for the Stimas. They had driven up from Edison, N.J.— nearly 250 miles away. As Amanda Stima stood in line to register, her aunt and grandmother waited anxiously for instructions about what to do next. “It was actually a very smooth process for us to get here,” said Dana Stima, Amanda’s aunt. “And the set-up has been great, where they have all of these people running around to help you move in.” Shawn Edie, Regis director of housing, says that a well-organized

and upbeat move-in day is important for both students and families. Regis did its best to give the campus a festive atmosphere— a DJ manned a table, blasting out throbbing tunes, and a refreshment table was set up for weary movers. For parents and students, the atmosphere at move-in day made quite the impression. “I really like the way things are looking here,” said Federico Sanchez of East Boston as he walked toward registration. Sanchez plans to study a combination of sports management and psychology. For him, the diversity of the Regis campus was a crucial draw. And though moving out of the city was a taxing process, it is all going to be worth it in Sanchez’s eyes. “Before moving out, you have to go through everything and figure out what you need and what you’re missing. But I’m really excited to move in and get started.”


The morning began with families lining up at Angela Hall, mountains of clothing and furniture in tow. Students and their families lugged suitcases and backpacks, cartons and trunks, as well as basketballs and assorted sporting equipment, some flat screen televisions, and of course the occasional teddy bear. Bill Fontes, a father from South Hadley, Mass., surveyed the twodays’ worth of packing wedged into his van, musing on the unpacking yet to come. “At least I have a 13-year-old who can do a lot of the carrying,” he observed wryly. Don Raucher of Florence, Mass., helped his daughter Taylor move her belongings, including quantities of snacks. “My wife seems to think that they don’t sell snack foods here, so she really stocked up,” Raucher joked. “We have a lot of Goldfish to unpack.” While parents were understandably sad to say goodbye to their children, many of their children were eager for that first taste of independence. “I really can’t wait to get in there and get started,” exclaimed Molly Landis as she walked through

Dear Alumni and Friends, I can’t believe another year has passed! Again I have the privilege of thanking you for your generosity and support over the past fiscal year. I am so pleased to present this to you, the Roll of Honor for the 2011–2012 year. As you can see, we are truly “Building Regis Together.” For the College as a whole, so many important things happened in the ’11–’12 fiscal year: we completed a strategic plan, gave iPads to all full-time students and faculty to enhance learning opportunities in and out of the classroom, increased enrollment, and added many new interdisciplinary programs for undergraduates and graduates alike. In the Office of Institutional Advancement and Alumni Relations (our new, expanded name), we celebrate that we exceeded our yearly goals


for the Annual Fund. Thank you for making this year successful! I’m also excited to announce that the Annual Fund has been renamed The Regis Fund. We want to make “Regis” front and


center in all we do. Like the Annual Fund, The Regis Fund supports so many crucial initiatives on campus: student financial aid, faculty projects, campus maintenance and improvements, extracurricular activities, technology advances, and much more. As we move forward into the coming months, I am optimistic for The Regis Fund and all the other special initiatives our creative donors design to build legacies for themselves and their loved ones. I also hope we continue to shatter records, especially by increasing our alumni participation. We’re way above national averages, but we can always do better. I look forward to seeing you at our many events. This year, we have a focus on networking events even as we continue to hold our signature Regis events. I love being a part of this dynamic and visionary Regis community. Please be in touch with your thoughts and ideas at or (781) 768-7222. My deepest gratitude and thanks,

Tribute Jean Ryan McCall ’55 Alumna Jean Ryan McCall ’55 passed away on July 21, 2012. Despite suffering 20 years of illness, Jean lived every day with cheerfulness, dignity and grace. She will be remembered as a true lady and generous friend, having brought much joy and happiness to those whose lives she touched. “Jean was such a dedicated member of the Regis community,” said Christina Duggan, Director of Alumni Relations and Annual Giving. “She just loved Regis and was so generous with her time and spirit.” Jean’s family requested that donations be made in her memory to The Regis Fund. Because of their generosity, more than $21,500 has been donated in her honor. Jean was the loving wife of William F. McCall Jr., of Winchester, beloved daughter of the late Warren and Anna (Galvin) Ryan, cherished mother of David and his wife Roberta of Burlington, Linda Parkins and her husband Thomas of Manchester-By-The-Sea, and Karen Fagan and her husband Timothy of Winchester, beloved grandmother to Erin Michelle, Matthew William, Anna Kathleen, Catherine Jean, Emily Anne, Ryan Pimenta and William Marcio, and sister of the late Warren J. Ryan Jr.

Regina Koch ’48 Regina m. Koch ’48, PhD, a longtime Regis supporter and friend, passed away May 9, 2012. Not only was Regina an alumna and generous donor to Regis College, but she was also Academic Dean from 1970-1973, a member of the German Department from 1964-1970, and a former Sister of St. Joseph. Her family and friends held a celebration of her life in the Regis College Chapel in August.

Regina graduated from Regis College and received her master’s from Boston College and her doctorate from Harvard University. She dedicated more than 25 years of her life to the Sisters of St. Joseph and as a faculty member at Regis. She also served on the faculties of the University of Maine and Purdue University before starting a second career with Ameriprise. Regina loved her dogs, enjoyed traveling, was an avid reader, collector and made a difference in this world through her philanthropy, giving annually to more than 400 charities. She will be missed by her sister Elizabeth and brother-in-law, Philip Bryan, nieces, including fellow Regis alumnae Patricia Koch, O.D. ’75, Donna Bryan Barinelli ’83, and Katherine Fredette ’80, grand-nieces and grandnephews, extended family and friends in the United States and Germany. Her final resting place is with her parents, Joseph and Eva Koch in the Gardens of Gethsemane Cemetery, West Roxbury, Mass.

“It was beautiful to be a part of her memorial,” said Tara M. Brady, Director of Development at Regis. “Regina gave so much to so many people and places, including Regis. She will sorely be missed by many.”

in the home of my daughter Mary and her husband John Cadwallader. I play bridge, read, and follow the Presidential election. I chat often with my children and grandchildren in Boston, daughters Kathy Lynch O’Donoghue ’67 and Maureen in Florida, and grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren in Washington and Colorado. I celebrated my 95th birthday with my children at Legal Seafood in Boston, and received many flowers and cards from my large, extended family. I wish my classmates happiness, health, and smiles. Bless one and all, and Regis “High on the Hilltop.”


✒ Mary Hurley Good, 228 Woburn Street, Reading, MA 01867, 781-9442683, ¶ This

year’s reunion united many happy graduate classes. I was proud to represent Class of ’42 at our 70th Reunion. I am sorry to say only 2 of us attended. Classmate Alice and I were asked to lead the parade; it was an honor. The parade began with a 3-piece band, playing beautiful music and crossing over the exquisite campus. Alice and I held our Regis signs proudly as we listened to the beautiful music. I said to Alice, “Let’s dance,” so we did. The parading classes laughed and clapped. The campus looked beautiful; we both enjoyed the special event. ¶ I’d like to share a story that is pertinent to this point in time. In my role as Alumnae President in 1956, I appeared at many Regis gatherings and meetings. The one that afforded me the greatest pleasure was the 1956 Ring Ceremony. The event welcomed students into the membership of the Regis College Alumnae Association. ¶ It was traditional for members of the junior class, upon receiving their rings, to become associate members of the Alumnae Association. It was my joy extending the welcoming hand of the Alumnae Association. ¶ In attendance that day in 1956 were Sr. Alice and Fr. Harrington, members of the faculty Class of 1956. I extended warmest welcome and our prayerful best wishes for the future. ¶ The Class of 1956 was fortunate to receive their rings on February 12, 1956. It was 56 years ago. On that day, the Commonwealth of MA granted Regis its charter. ¶ In a sense, we were celebrating the birthday of Regis College, by welcoming

51 FALL 12

Greetings to our classmates from 72 years ago. Happy days with wonderful memories! ¶ I attended the annual Golden Tower Luncheon at the Fine Arts Center on May 21. Lunch was served to alumni and friends present. At our table sat Mary Hurley Good ’42 and her daughter, Lily Pereg Achein ’44, Doris Lynch ’45, Philomene Winchester Murphy ’45 (sister of late classmate Eileen Winchester Young), Annette Pendergast ’45, and my daughter Mary Lynch Cadwallader. President Antoinette M. Hays, PhD, RN, commented with pride that Regis upholds its educational excellence and religious principles set by the Sisters of Saint Joseph. ¶ Mary McDevitt Hadley ’s daughter Pat reports that Mary’s beloved husband Linus passed away on Feb. 5, 2012. Mary moved and is a resident at Harbor House in Osterville, MA. She misses Linus but is acclimating to her surroundings and has many visitors. The Hadley family—consisting of 1 daughter, 4 sons, many grandchildren, and great grandchildren—all reside in Massachusetts ¶ Mary Hastings Kilcoyne resides in the family home with son Timothy. Daughter Julie, and sons John and Charles reside with their families in Clinton, MA. Mary sees her children and grandchildren frequently. ¶ Marie Dillon Marcellino enjoys her summer home on Cape Cod, and returns during winter to her condo in Lexington. Marie’s 4 children all reside in Massachusetts. Her 6 stepchildren, the children of her late husband Bill Marcellino, reside across the US. Marie keeps busy with her family and extended family. Daughter Kathy, whose husband Felix passed away, assists her mother. Marie’s energetic spirit prevails. ¶ Geraldine Burke Morrill resides in Plantation Village in Wilmington, NC. Diagnosed with a clogged heart condition, she refused to undergo surgery. Her physician suggested a new heart procedure without surgery at U of NC hospital. She successfully underwent the procedure and returned home within 10 days. Gerrie’s 6 married children are attentive to their mother. ¶ Janet Ahern Rink resides at the medical facility at Mather Place of Wilmette, IL, an assisted living complex. Her caretaker

Kristen reports Janet does not answer the phone. Holly Rink Troeger (Janet’s daughter) and family are in constant contact with Janet and visit frequently. ¶ Rita McNeil Schissel ’s son Dr. Stephen, daughter Jeanne, and husband Dr. Charles, report an arthritic condition that limits Rita’s activities with her 9 children. She is, however, in constant touch with them. She is blessed with her wonderful family. ¶ Barbara Norton Schlitzer ’s daughter Jean reports Barbara was hospitalized for over a month with pneumonia. On Aug. 6, she returned home with continued nursing care. With son Victor and family in attendance, Barbara will recover. Barbara’s granddaughter Jane graduated from Stanford Medical University, is assigned to Children’s Hospital in Boston, and sees Barbara often. ¶ Mary Sampson Schmidt lives in San Jose, CA, where her 5 children grew up. Her husband passed away years ago. Mary was a Brookline resident, where she attended St. Aidan’s High School. She did not meet Mary Lynch of Brookline’s St. Mary’s High School, however, until arrival at Regis in 1936. Mary was married at St. Aidan’s with Regis classmates as bridesmaids: Ruth Monihan Savage, Ruth Ferraro Tobin, and Marion Quinn Clancy. Mary’s interest in Regis continues. ¶ Due to a home accident, Marie Scanlon Flaherty was hospitalized at Harbor House in Hingham, MA, for several months. She returned recently to her Scituate home, where her dedicated husband Matt was happy. Marie’s grandnephew and niece are attentive to Marie and Matt. Their grandmother Joey Scanlan Carlson ’45 is Marie’s sister ¶ Yvonne Normandeau Oswald ’s husband Norbert is a West Point graduate. The happy twosome enjoy residing in their military retirement residence in Melbourne, FL. Yvonne’s past medical health problems have improved. ¶ Martha Mitten Hosinski has resided in South Bend, IN, since her marriage to the late lawyer, Judge Bill Hosinki. Martha is a WWII Navy Wave Veteran. Her 5 children grew up in South Bend and 2 sons still live there. Daughters Anne and Claire live in Washington State. Martha is still her vibrant self. A description in the Regis yearbook ’40 reads “a flash of red hair and peel of laughter.” ¶ I (Mary Kerr Lynch) enjoy my country in-law apartment in Princeton, MA,

✒ Annette P. Pendergast, 101 Weatherbee Drive, Westwood, MA 02090, 781-326-1230 ¶ I’d like to

52 REGIS TODAY 31409p50-71.indd 52

inform you that Barbara Clancy has retired and the new Director of Alumni Relations and Annual Giving is Christina Duggan. Call her at 781-768-7228 with any questions or concerns. ¶ I regret to inform you of the death of Christine Shea Sheehy on March 20, 2012. She will be remembered at the Annual Memorial Liturgy on Sunday, Nov. 18, 2012, in the College Hall Chapel. Other classmates Claire Watson Hubbard, Marie Daley Earley, Mary Carr Simeone, and Elizabeth “Betty” Cronin Crane will also be remembered at the Liturgy. All members of our class are invited to attend the Mass and brunch. ¶ Anne Steffens Linnehan lives in Orleans on Cape Cod and all is well with her and her family. ¶ Doris Lynch, Philomene Winchester Murphy, and I attended the Golden Tower Luncheon on May 18th at Regis. It was great to see the sports field house, courts, and additional parking areas on the campus. ¶ On Aug. 9, with 160 other alumni, I attended the Cape Cod Luncheon at the Willowbend Country Club in Mashpee, MA. It was delightful. Our new President Antoinette M. Hays, PhD, RN, shared her vision for the future of Regis College. Also Dr. Hays introduced two new deans at Regis: Penelope Glynn, PhD, ANP, Dean of the School of Nursing, Science and Health Professions, and Malcolm Asadoorian, PhD, Dean of the School of Liberal Arts, Education and Social Sciences. Both spoke on their new assignments, which was interesting and added much to the luncheon. ¶ In August, Mary Foley Dowd returned from a 3-week trip visiting her son Chris in California and her daughter Martha in Chicago. This is an summer annual visit. Mary lives in Needham. ¶ All is well with Clare Dunn Hern and her family. She has many grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. ¶ Doris and Philomene spent the afternoon visiting Elizabeth “Betty” McNally Finigan at the Charwell House in Norwood, MA. Betty was a great hostess and they had a fun time together. ¶ If you have any news call or write a note to me. Stay happy and healthy.


✒ Phyllis Brosnahan Richardson, 3 Wingate Road, Lexington, MA 02421, 781-862-6262 ¶ We send our condolences to Dorothy “Dottie” Gibbons Sullivan on the passing of her husband

John. It also saddens me to report that earlier this spring we lost another friend, Patricia Baatz Murphy of York, ME. S. Dorothy represented them well at her service. ¶ It was a glorious 80-degree day for our 65th Reunion. Attending weekend festivities were classmates Gertrude Breen Alfredson, Alice Dunbar O’Halloran , Jeanne MacDonough Cronin , S. Dorothy McKenzie CSJ, Rita Dailey Fahey, Ruth Barry McCoy, Catherine “Kay” Gately McGunigle, Patricia Curtin Mahoney, and Phyllis Gallinelli Campbell. Just before the parade of classes, a special side trip was organized and a fleet of golf carts transported the Class of 1947 delegation to a new rock garden remembering Mary Jane Connor St. Germain. This peaceful place for reflection was made possible through a generous gift of the St. Germain family. Visit next time you are on campus. It is behind the library, close to the Tower. ¶ For Kay McGunigle it was a weekend of college graduations. Kay was visiting from Long Island to attend reunion and her grandchildren’s college graduations at Providence College and Boston U. ¶ Class of ’47 continued our tradition of a high percent of class giving to the Annual Fund (now called “The Regis Fund”). This year, ’47 is second highest of all classes! At our class meeting, we elected Alice O’Halloran Class President for the next 5 years; Jeanne Cronin remains Treasurer; Phyllis Campbell and Gert Alfredson continue as Fund Agents; and I am pleased to remain Class Reporter. ¶ In the “better living through technology” department, several of our classmates have improved their gaits: Rita with a new hip; Dorothy Mahoney McKenna with an improved hip; Jeanne with a new knee; and I am walking again after 3 months of rehab for a badly fractured pelvis. Patricia “Peg” Donovan Morton reports crystal clear vision after cataract surgery. ¶ In the “long time no see” category, several of our Cape Cod classmates got together for a mini reunion in July with Virginia “Ginnie” Demeo Prieto, who was visiting from California. Peg Morton, Dot, my daughter Elaine Richardson ’76, and I reconnected with Ginnie after many years. Our conversation started with life after Regis, continued through the years of raising our families, and migrated to a lively conversation about Nuns on the Bus. It was wonderful. ¶ We always look forward to hearing news about Regis and our classmates from our “Ladies Who

Lunch,” the monthly get-together of S. Dorothy, Gert, Alice, and Jeanne. ¶ Be sure to send me your news for the next time. In the meantime, keep happy and healthy!


65th Reunion ✒ Mary Lou Cooney Manning, 4942 Bel Pre Road, Rockville, MD 20853, 301460-5992, ¶

Sadness always follows the arrival of those small cream-colored envelopes from Regis. This winter we received the news of four deaths: M. Patricia

McGillicuddy Bowen, Mary Donelan Geraghty, Sarah Barry Callahan, and Regina M. Koch. We mourn their pass-

ing. ¶ Our next report reads like an emergency room file. Jean McDonald Snyder helped a friend with heavy lifting; shortly thereafter she was in frightful pain and could not walk. Jean was relieved when the MRI showed the stress had just triggered her arthritis. The back pain will go way with PT and the arthritis, well, that will return to its previous state but at least it will be no worse. Jean is improving in both body and spirit. ¶ Following a slip, Jane McGrath’s left arm is in a sling. Other than the restriction on her drivin which she is fighting tooth and nail—she is going about business as usual. She commandeered nieces and nephews to move her household goods to New Hampshire for her annual month in Rye Beach. Nothing keeps Jane down. ¶ Joan Doherty Mahoney had a severely injured rotator cuff, which doctors said would not be helped by surgery. Somehow Joan connected with a French doctor who had perfected a surgery and replaced the whole rotator cuff. Joan is without pain and went to the theater within 3 weeks ¶ Our wonderful roving reporter, Ann O’Hare Smith, was unwittingly playing hostess to some “guests” who moved in last fall and wreaked havoc in her attic. When Ann came up to the Goose Rocks in the spring she discovered a raccoon family residing in her upper level. It took Ann until end of July to remove the inhabitants and clean up the mess. Sr. Regina Harrington, CSJ, sent along a copy of CONNECTING, the magazine of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston. In it is a wonderful review of the ministries she embraced as a nun. Sr. Regina does not see herself as “retired,” but simply changing ministries. Our class was blessed to have gentle and caring women to inspire us. ¶ I have my own tale of woe. Driving en route to Florida this year, a large piece of equipment bounced out of the car in front of us and shattered the windshield. We stayed in an Econolodge for 3 days, feeling very

10/19/12 5:02 PM

class sorry for ourselves. Then it occurred to us that we had had a narrow escape from death and we were thankful we had survived a potential tragedy. Another plus was that John started to tell everyone what a super driver his wife is.

We cherish

wonderful memories of our Regis days with them ¶ Doris Toohey McCue and Anne Alfreda Swiston O’Hara recently reminisced about their college days as Psych majors. Doris and her late husband Jack had 10 children and 20 grandchildren, some still in college, others graduated. Doris and her Air Force surgeon son will travel to San Francisco to visit his daughter who will attend a Jesuit college there. ¶ Amy Marie Chin Guen is trying to sell her house in Florida and live in Boston in her condo. Amy’s son is a psychologist, and her daughter, a widow and the mother of three sons, is a wellknown landscape architect in Chicago. ¶ Barbara Tyrrell Nugent attended the Cape Cod Luncheon. Barbara lives in Mashpee, MA. She enjoys the women’s club at her church and likes to attend track and swim meets of her granddaughter, a star athlete at Falmouth High. ¶ Pauline “Polly” Doyle Powell visited from Washington, DC. Terry LeBlanc Gray and Alfreda loved hearing about her travels. Polly claims to be slowing down, but travels to France and Malta soon.¶ Beth Finn Deschenes lives in Centerville near her brother and sisters She helps her siblings as they have health problems. ¶ Katherine “Kitty” Grimes Crotty lives in an elegant retirement home in New Hampshire. She enjoys singing in a chorus. Kitty has 6 children and 13 grandchildren living nearby, 2 of them begin college in Boston this fall. ¶ Mary Daily Neylon had a phone chat with Alice Boyce Smith, who had just returned from a wonderful tour of Toronto and Quebec City with a church choir group. It was a delightful trip, with Mass everyday at 6 am and many historical site visits. ¶ Catherine “Cay” Nolan Sokol escaped the heat and humidity for a few weeks vacationing on Cape Cod ¶ Jacqueline “Jackie” Choquette Picard called Virginia “Ginny” Looney Weamer in Missouri; it was a blast reconnecting. They were 19 again in a nanosecond! Ginny keeps in touch with many Regis friends and they are a source of strength and stability in her life. She mentioned how valiant and courageous Nancy McGuire has been these last few years. George and Jackie celebrated their 61st anniversary last

spring in Antigua—and survived driving on the wrong side of the road! ¶

Tower Luncheon on May 18 took place at noon in the Lower Student Union. It was very noisy, but the lunch was delicious. In attendance were Ann Brown Janes, Florence Kelly McKenna , Barbara “Bobbie” Palmer Schlichte, Janice McBride Power, Elizabeth “Betty” Cullen, Mary Lee McLaughlin Girouard, and Jean Williamson Horsman. Anne Downey Tierney missed it for the first time as she was in the Lahey Clinic having a shoulder replacement. ¶ The new President Antoinette M. Hays, PhD, RN, circulated among the tables. Former President Mary Jane England was recognized for her years of service. Of the class members present, 1 was single, 1 was with a living husband, and the rest were widows. ¶ Margaret “Margie” Linney Carroll has successfully completed cancer surgery. Yeah! ¶ Barbara Phair McCarthy is not too well and has breathing problems. ¶ Ann Comerford Kelly reports from California that she is fine but not planning a trip East in the near future. ¶ Sr. Marjorie Marie, CSJ (Rosemary Howe) is not too well. She resides in the Bethany Health Care Center in Framingham. ¶ Barbara Coolen Corrado celebrated her 82nd birthday (young!) in Del Mar, CA, at her daughter Ann’s home. Also present were her son from Singapore and her daughter from England. Barbie has 9 grandchildren: 7 boys and 2 girls. ¶ Some of you business majors probably remember Sr. Garnier. Sr. lives at Bethany in Framingham and recently celebrated her 90th birthday. Congratulations, Sr.! ¶ Congratulations also go to Phil and Anna Moran Phalon who just celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary and to Phyllis Dinneen and Dorothy Welch who are celebrating 60 years as Sisters of Saint Joseph. ¶ Please send all the news that’s fit to print (and even some that isn’t) to Ann or Anne.

Golden Tower Luncheon in May brought out many ’49ers as usual. One highlight of the day was receiving a copy of Katherine “Kaye” Barron Cox’s latest achievement: getting published in her local Belmont newspaper. The article, titled “Giving thanks for the time I had with my mother,” covers the trip Kaye and her mother took to Bermuda for her mother’s 95th birthday. Kaye’s mother was the life of the party; many hotel guests fell under her spell. Lovely story, Kaye, thanks for sharing it. Kaye has become a student again and is taking a class in memoir writing at the Lifelong Learning Program at Regis College. ¶ Sadly we lost two classmates recently: Pauline McCarthy in May and Ann McGrath Cullinan in July. Pauline had an interesting background. She attended Regis for 1 year, then left to serve in the Navy during WWII. After 5 years in the Navy, she returned to Regis in 1946 to join our class and graduate with us. Kaye, Mary Breslin, Catherine “Cay” Foley Hines, and Rosemary McAuliffe attended her funeral in Belmont while Nancy Natoli Fay and Marion Comerford Cowie were at the National Veteran’s Cemetery on the Cape for her burial. Ann Cullinan passed away July 31 after a courageous battle with cancer. Ann and I became friends freshman year and remained close. I will miss her terribly. Once Ann settled in North Conway, Nancy Fay and I (with Jims Murphy originally) spent a few days with her every fall: enjoying the mountain views, shopping the outlets, and enjoying each other. Joe and I drove up for Ann’s wake and funeral at Our Lady of the Mountains’s beautiful church in North Conway. Ann was buried with Arthur in the North Conway Cemetery, looking out on the mountains she loved. She is survived by her 5 children and 10 grandchildren. ¶ Mary Breslin gathered a group of ’49ers for lunch at her summer home in Hull again this August. She’s most gracious and hospitable; everyone there enjoys this get-together so much. All in attendance are doing well and enjoying life, for which we were very thankful.

thanks to Ann Purcell MacDonald and Catherine “Cay” Deveney Kaladin

for their years of faithfully reporting news. ¶ Our 60th reunion was a delight. The campus looked beautiful and the weather was perfect. Those attending were Sally Finnerty Tully,

Mary Elizabeth “Zay” Dunphy Hyde, Marie Rizzo, Dorothy Holley Connors, Marie Fleming Sisk, Pat Wentworth Delorey, Pat Arroll Gradone, Lois Brigham Saltalamacchia, Carlotta Krauth O’Brien, Marilyn “Mal” Burke O’ Rourke, Mary Gallagher Watts, Ann Geisel, Pat Hogan, and Joan Hartley Meagher. Mary Foley Noon had

54 REGIS TODAY 31409p50-71.indd 54

planned to attend, but was not feeling well that day. Nancy Boland Johnson was unable to make it due to a minor accident she had the day before. She was not injured, fortunately, and is doing fine now. Many who would have otherwise attended were busy with weddings and graduations of grandchildren. Perhaps the highlight of the event was the address by our new President Antoinette M. Hays, PhD, RN. Pat and I met Dr. Hays and her husband as we roamed the corridors of College Hall. It was a privilege to have a 1-on-1 conversation with her. She has wonderful ideas for Regis—look for great things to come! ¶ On a sad note, Kara Kosmos sent word that her mother, Mary Azzarito Kosmos, passed away in January. Our condolences to Kara and her family. ¶ Marjorie MacKenzie Williams expressed her regret at having missed the reunion. She is remarried to J. Carl Pellicane and lives on the same street as her brother near Richmond, VA. Her successful children are scattered: Boulder, Minneapolis, LA, and Hamden. Her daughter in LA writes scripts for children’s cartoons and has received two Oscars for her writing. Marjorie’s new address is: 8303 Buckeye Drive, Henrico, VA 23228. ¶ Pat McNerney Kelleher and her husband Jim visited with Sally Tully at the Cape this summer. They explored the area, including sighting whales in Provincetown. Pat teaches an online course for the U of Dayton, training religious education teachers. ¶ Sally, Cay Kaladin, and Catherine “Kate” Molloy Rowe, who had been on a cruise at the time of our reunion, all met up at the summer Cape Cod Luncheon. ¶ Pat Arroll Gradone enjoyed her trip with her daughter to Poland where they stayed with a friend. They visited Pope John Paul’s home, concentration camps, and the salt mines. ¶ Marie Rizzo vacationed at Chatham and at Stowe, VT, with family. ¶ Pat Hogan enjoyed her beach house at Hampton Beach. ¶ October marks the 20th anniversary of Richard’s and my retirement and move to California. Although we miss our family and friends in

New England, we do not miss the winters. Life is good here: We have 2 children in CA, and our son has 16-year-old twin daughters, who live close to us. Our oldest is a Professor at U of Scranton. I keep busy going to Aqua-aerobics and I am active in the Renaissance Society, which is a learning-in-retirement organization located at Sacramento State U. We also participate in church activities and play bridge. We travelled to Argentina and Chile last winter and we enjoy annual trips to Hawaii. This January we hope to visit our daughter Sharon in Mexico, where she will spend part of her sabbatical year.


60th Reunion ✒ Shirley Connors Sardella, 52 Eunice

Circle, Wakefield, MA 01880, 781-2243468 ¶ We were saddened by the deaths of our dear classmates Janet White Glancy and Marjorie Wood Underwood. Janet passed on April 6,

2012, and we extend our condolences to her family. Marjorie passed on July 16, 2012. We extend sympathy to her husband Aidan. Janet and Marjorie will be remembered at the annual Memorial Liturgy, Nov. 18, 2012, in the College Hall Chapel at Regis. We also extend sympathy to Margaret “Peg” Donnelly on the passing of her brother last summer. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Peg. ¶ Catherine “Kay” Powers Leddy and husband John celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary on May 11, 2012, at the Pocasset Golf Club with the entire family present. Two of her grandchildren have graduated college, 3 others from high school, and 3 young grandchildren are in elementary school. They keep Kay and Jon counting their blessings! Kay and John attended the KennedyManny Wedding in Hyannis Port on July 7, 2012. Kay loves to reminisce about our daily campus walks after class while at Regis. ¶ Last summer, I enjoyed a marvelous conversation with Frances Florencourt from her home in Arlington, MA. Frances works untiringly for the Flannery O’Connor Foundation. Her picture and remarks concerning her famous cousin appear in At Home With Flannery O’Connor, a book published by a grant from the Watson-Brown Foundation. For good reading Frances recommended The Complete Stories of Flannery O’Connor, especially “The River” and “The Revelation.” Frances is a Eucharistic Minister at St. Eulalia’s Church and at the Gables in Winchester. ¶ Mary Jane O’Connor Lee hails from Grand Blanc, MI, and vacationed recently in Arizona. In spite of painful arthritis, she enjoys dancing, line dancing, and clog almost

speakers were our dynamic Dr. Hays; Penelope Glynn, PhD, ANP Dean of the School of Nursing, Science and Health Professions; and newly appointed Dean of the College’s School of Liberal Arts, Education, and Social Sciences, Malcolm Asadoorian, PhD. Their presentation of the Strategic Plan for Regis through 2016 gave the audience the impression that Regis is definitely “on the move.” ¶ Several class members had summer travels. Mary Rose Campbell visited friends in Ireland in July. On an overnight visit to Killarney, she shared the town with 9,000 bicyclists who were preparing for a charity bike ride around the Ring of Kerry. Timing is everything! ¶ Mary Keenan explored Colorado by train in July. Mary Lou Rawson packed her bags for a trip through the Canadian Rockies. ¶ Mary Jeanne Getzfread Sullivan planned to escape Florida’s summer heat and humidity with a trip to Sugar Mountain in North Carolina’s high country, but knee surgery was planned for

September. We hope that she is walking on the beach this fall with her brand new knee. After graduating from Holy Cross College, Mary Jeanne’s granddaughter Colleen will volunteer this year at a mission called Rostro de Cristo in Ecuador. Mary Jeanne says, “I thank the Lord that there are young people like her who will do this.” ¶ Mary McDonald Eagleson is in her home in Lincoln, NE, where she and Ed enjoy the enrichment of Lifelong Learning Classes and the symphony as well as the proximity of their daughter.

¶ Our big news for this issue was our 55th reunion. Thirty-nine of our classmates attended, and two, Elly Z. Arotschenzeff Doyle and

Ruth “Spud” Sanderson Kingsbury,

attended all activities. Many flew in for the occasion: Elly from California; Jane Denmark Maher from Florida; Mary Lyn Eagan Whittaker from North Carolina; and Sheila Cruchley Campbell from Ohio. Thanks to Spud and her husband Bob, and Virginia Pyne Kaneb and her husband Jack, for their many generous contributions to Regis. ¶ Suzy Treacy McGovern felt the drive to reunion was too long for her. Others had health considerations. Elaine Govoni Mclaughlin has serious heart problems, which have kept her close to home. Fortunately she has been a lover of reading since childhood; it keeps her busy. ¶ After reunion, Elly went with her brother to Canada where they spent their summers during their childhood. ¶ Mary Lyn recently returned from the Holy Land. She made the pilgrimage after the death of her husband Robert. Her sorrow was softened by the large number (600) who paid their respects at his funeral at the cathedral. ¶ Cathy Stanley Buehner and Maureen Staunton Crowley have been traveling together in the US and Europe. Cathy is a great driver, making the trip east from Ohio twice this summer. I also discovered at the Regis Cape Cod Luncheon in Mashpee that Maureen is a humorous storyteller. Anne Fox Fitzpatrick and Linda Aimone Donovan also attended the excellent luncheon. ¶ Kathy Speer Howrigan and her husband travelled to Ireland, Florida, and the Cape. ¶ Marilyn Napierski moved from Brewster to Quincy. ¶ Suzy and Marie Nadeau Reck are active in emailing right-wing messages. ¶ Isabel Long Chesak had a breast cancer scare but all is well.

Carol Sherman Ryan and Mary Sherry Kuppens passed way in April; Mary Hefron, Jean Ryan McCall and Catherine Dowd Ward all passed away in July; and Barbara Thompson Granger passed away in August. Our prayers and sympathy go out to their families as well as to our classmates who have lost members of their families. Peace. ¶ Barbara Kelley Kelley had a hip replacement last summer and reports she is well. Barbara suggested we highlight “it’s a small world!” events that have happened to us. ¶ Pat Thalheimer King was delighted to discover halfway through a flight home from England that Sr. Marie Therese Martin, CSJ was on the same plane! ¶ Grace Cronin Godefroy was in Massachusetts for a family wedding this summer and came to the Vineyard to spend the day with me. Recently, while waiting for a ski tow up a mountain in California, she turned around and Maureen Donnelly Carlson was behind her! ¶ I had a fun experience this summer: A young intern from Texas at the museum where I work is the best friend of my grandson’s girlfriend! These are little reminders of how close we can be to other people. Do you have a favorite? Send it to me and we’ll publish it! ¶ Rosalie L’Ecuyer, in Fairbanks, is doing OK, but her years are beginning to show up. I assured her that we all are having the same problems. She also admits she still can’t get used to men at Regis! ¶ Jacqui Cyr Lewis has come up with a great idea: Why don’t we do some class day trips (with lunch of course)? We might get together and go on a museum tour like the Peabody Essex Museum and the Heritage Museum in Lawrence. ¶ Janet Condrey Beyer was at Lake Tahoe in July—that’s probably why we have no other news from her!

our last report. In April, Pat Turner Kelley once again hosted a luncheon at Woodland Country Club. Emily Melo, the recipient of the Sister John Scholarship for the past academic year, was greeted by 19 members of our class. Mary Keenan highlighted Emily’s accomplishments as an excellent student (majoring in Spanish and education), her musical talents, and devotion to her church and to Regis. She is a delightful young woman with a promising future. We are proud to contribute to her education. ¶ The Sister John Scholarship was established at our 50th reunion. You may designate your contributions to the Annual Fund (now “The Regis Fund”) specifically for this scholarship, if you desire. We congratulate Carol Bonner Connell for her work as Class Fund Agent this past year. Our total gift to the college was $26,702.01, representing donations from 60.2% of our class. Good job! ¶ Ten of us met at Regis on a glorious May afternoon for the Golden Tower Luncheon. College President Antoinette M. Hays, PhD, RN, presented a positive account of Regis’ progress: increased enrollment, international outreach, and receipt of a major grant from the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund. Attendees at the luncheon were Joanne Moloney Fiske, Mary Lou Rawson, Mary Keenan, Ann Flaherty Walsh, Bea Pattavina Sloan, Virginia Clark Kristo, Ann Marie Healy Sawyer, Margie Casey Mulcahy, Carol Bonner Connell, and Gerry Dowd Driscoll. ¶ Five members of the Class of ’56 attended the Cape Cod Luncheon at Willowbend Country Club in Mashpee on Aug. 9: Mary Lou Rawson, Mary

To Vicky Alexander who spent decades doing medical research in Africa and Southeast Asia, at times ducking bullets to get medical supplies. She now has lupus and lives in India. To Maria Lynch who labored among the poor in Latin America for decades, sometimes during unrest. She is now retired (do nuns ever retire?) in the Maryknoll home base in New York. To Marty Hohl who has shared her well-known gift of laughter with the thousands for whom she has done social work in the eastern states. To Carol Fitzsimmons for her years counseling and providing spiritual direction as a member of the Sisters of St Joseph. To Mary Geary for leadership of hospitals, which brought her many honors, honorary doctorates, and a lifetime achievement award. In her senior years, she has chosen an area of our interest: running a retirement facility.

Regis Cape Cod Luncheon on Aug. 9. To our delight and surprise, Elaine Sobolewski McMahon was already at our table. ¶ Elaine had been a resident her 1st year at Regis and after that a commuter. We were delighted to meet her and hear her story. After Regis she became a Medical Technologist, beginning her career in Lowell. In 1970, she moved to Cape Cod for her husband’s job and worked at the Cape Cod Hospital for 29 years. Her 3 children and 4 grandchildren all live on the Cape. After her husband’s passing 7 years ago, Elaine convinced herself to join Curves, the Academy of Lifelong Learning, and other groups. Now she feels that life is good. ¶ Angela continues on the Board of the Bayberry Quilt Guild on Cape Cod. Thankfully she is no longer in charge of the large quilt show put on by Bayberry every year. This year, however, she is in charge of Programs for the Guild, a challenging task at times. ¶ Officially retired, Lucy now volunteers 1 day a week at the school where her daughter teaches. She will spend a week in El Salvador, working with children at an eye clinic. This is her 3rd time volunteering there. ¶ Laura is busy making a tee shirt quilt with memories of her travels. She enjoys working on fabric selection and color blending. She and husband Bob enjoy life in Rockport, MA. ¶ From Willy’s Gym in Eastham, Mary Jane was part of a team of 8 who went to the USTA Super Seniors Tennis Finals in Phoenix.

Spring Break road trips from Regis to Florida. In those days, we drove day and night, slept in the car, ate junk food, and partied on the beach for hours. Well, Barbara Hoyle Healy, Ellen Kelleher Guillette, and Judith Powers recreated the trip this March, visiting family and friends along the East Coast and joining Regis’s St. Patrick’s Day celebration on Naples. All agreed that the trip was fun, but they plan to fly to Florida from now on. ¶ Since the trip was so successful, Mary Doane Cassidy, Joan Murray, Judith Powers, and Barbara Hoyle Healy flew to England in September to visit and tour London, Dorset, and Sussex. ¶ Many classmates are dealing with health problems, either their own issues or those of spouses and other family members. Agnes O’Hara Barrett , who spent several months recovering from a serious fall, is almost as good as new. She found that yoga is the perfect exercise for her and enjoys twice-a-week classes. In Swampscott, Mary Doane Cassidy teaches yoga at the Senior Center and also gives private sessions. ¶ Carroll Beegan Follas and John had a delightful evening with Lolita deLeon McKenna and Stephen at the Isles Club in Punta Gorda this past winter. She notes that many Regis alums are making Florida a destination during the winter months. Among them will be Joan Murray, who just purchased a condo for use should she ever retire from teaching at Regis. ¶ Four members of our class attended the Cape Cod Alumni (I still want to type alumnae!) Luncheon at Willowbend in Mashpee in August. Diane Doherty Anastasia, Agnes O’Hara Barrett, Virginia Bishop Carroll, and Carroll Follas commented that 3 of the 4 were sociology majors and obviously learned to be social from Mr. Overcliff. Diane golfs at Woods Hole, often with Nancy Fay ’49. Diane’s husband Lou also golfs and fishes. Since Diane belongs to a Falmouth gourmet group, she appreciates what he brings home from the sea.

50th Reunion ✒ M.J. Pescatore Cicchetti, quincyck1@ ¶ I just returned from a family wedding in Charleston, SC. Like many of you, family is now all over the country and the world. Luckily, both of my children live nearby. I just finished our summer “Beach School,” which I have for my granddaughters, Ava (10) and Anya (8). Our informal curriculum consists of beachcombing, baking, arts and crafts, computer activities, dressing up, and having fun. ¶ I am “retired,” taking 4 courses in a Learning for Life Program, and working on my “bucket list.” If I find another interesting business adventure, I would do that. ¶ Nancy Collins Edwards and husband Bill traveled to Idaho to see their grandchildren this summer. They took the kids back to Green Harbor, where she and Bill have a summer home. Their daughter, Nancy, sold her house quickly; Nancy and her family are living with them in Milton, while they look for a home. ¶ Bev Falcione Marano’s husband Jim celebrated a “milestone” birthday. Their 3 sons roasted Jim at a family event and showed their love for him. Bev works 2 days a week and is as lively as ever. ¶ Mary Dowd Eberle urges everyone to come to the 50th

reunion and update Regis with your email address and mailing address. ¶ Mary Arnold Geroch, aka “Dora the Explorer,” is a world traveler. She calls me to ask if I will go on trips to Nepal, the Galapagos, etc. My answer is always “I don’t think so.” I still have scars from surfing and canoeing mishaps with her in Florida. She is an active, outdoorsy, animal-kingdom girl. ¶ Joan Iverson Gallivan encourages us to help with the reunion. We need more people involved. ¶ Can you believe that we will be celebrating our 50th Reunion in May? Where has the time gone? Planning for this momentous occasion has already begun.

efforts all these years. ¶ Well, we did it! Celebrated 50 years in fine style, thanks to Class President Mary McCauley Higgins and her wonderful planning group. Thank you, Mary and all! It was special to see friends from our college days and youth, and to share stories. It was great to see classmates from so far away come back to campus. Rosemary Shannon Robbins from Hawaii, Angela Pengelly Sandilands and husband Tom Sandilands from Scotland, Liz McGuire and husband Peter Eltgroth from California, Mary Jane Power from New Mexico, and—perhaps the prize— Pat Lilley Underberg and husband Bob, who drove their camper from Wyoming. Thank you all for coming, and thank you, Bob, for the coffee on Sunday morning. ¶ Mary told us that the class raised $108,936.75 for Regis during our 50th Reunion Celebration Year! Many classmates contributed to this success: Our participation rate was 66.13%. Congratulations! Thanks to all who were able to contribute to Regis. ¶ A reunion highlight was our own Mass celebrating our 50 years and remembering our beloved deceased classmates. Pat Crosby Pemberton’s daughter and granddaughter brought up the rose for Pat. The next poignant moment was the distribution of the “Tower Pins” by President Antoinette M. Hays, PhD, RN at the end of Mass. ¶ Maureen Connelly made the banner for the Parade of Classes, modeled after the original that hung in Boston Garden in 1960 proclaiming, “Yes, We Did Put a New John in the White House!” It got many laughs! ¶ At the Saturday dinner, Dr. Hays announced over the mike that the Class of ’62 should get up on the dance floor and dance! We did the Twist! As you can imagine, it was quite a sight. On Sunday morning at brunch, several younger alums came up to me and asked if our class met often during the years because they said, “You seem so close, and so young!” Hooray for us! ¶ Mary Higgins requests we keep our pill box hats and wear them again for our 55th in 2017! ¶ Stay tuned for a class letter coming your way. A lot of people had some beautiful reflections that I want to share with the class.

During a visit to New York’s Museum of Modern Art, I came across a book of photography by Joyce Tenneson. ¶ Paula, Marlene, and I were at the Cape Cod Luncheon, and met Dr. Hays; Penelope Glynn, PhD, ANP, Dean of Regis College’s School of Nursing, Science, and Health Professions; and Malcolm Asadoorian, PhD, Dean of Regis College’s School of Liberal Arts, Education and Social Sciences. Regis appreciates and encourages our generous support as it ventures into new programs. Additionally, remember our faculty like Sr. Jeanne d’Arc O’Hare, our Government Teacher and later President. Her sister and niece were at the luncheon and report that Sr. is doing well at Bethany in Framingham. S. Cecilia Agnes Mulrennan, our Biology Teacher, visits her often from a nearby building.

45th Reunion ✒ Tricia Nelson Cross, 161 Oak

Common Ave., St. Augustine, FL, 32095.

¶ Greetings, classmates. Sincere condolences to our class president Nancy Brine Fredrickson who lost her dear husband Gary suddenly in July. ¶ I attended the Regis Cape Cod Luncheon in August. Our charismatic new President Antoinette M. Hays, PhD, RN, and deans shared exciting plans on Regis’s future. It was great to catch up with Mary Beth Govoni Cormier who enjoys art classes and retirement. We admired pictures of her daughter Stephanie’s beautiful wedding, and of her son James who will be married next year. Mary Jane Maciewicz Fernino impresses classmates with her recent article and blog. She lives in North Falmouth and has 2 sweet grandchildren Lauren, 5, and Michael, 2. Marcia Carey Walsh, our class fund agent, enjoys spending time in Naples, FL, after retiring from a career in accounting. She has 4 children and 2 grandchildren. She likes oil painting, knitting and her book club. ¶ Mimi McDonald Concannon

spent her birthday with us at the luncheon and took the centerpiece home! Mimi retired from teaching and spends the summer in Cotuit, MA. Husband Bill commutes from Newton. Her lovely daughter, also a Regis alum, came to the luncheon with Mimi; she visits Mimi during the summer with her 2 boys. Mimi and Bill have 3 girls and 6 grandchildren (1 girl and 5 boys). ¶ Judy Murphy Lauch makes our class proud as a Board of Trustee member and supporter of the new president. She is proud of all that Regis has accomplished especially in the last decade. ¶ The Regis Cape Cod Luncheon also served as the first Committee Meeting for the 45th Reunion. Watch for more information to come and save the date: Reunion Weekend, May 17-19, 2013. How can that be possible? ¶ Jo Sullivan, who retired in June 2011 from the Randolph, MA, public schools says it was “a great privilege” being with teachers and students every day. Jo served 2 years as the Assistant Principal for Teaching and Learning at Randolph High School. ¶ Irene Shea McGee retires after 42.6 years of teaching. She said she didn’t want to hear students say, “My great grandmother told me about YOU!” Irene moved to The Villages in Florida, an over-55 retirement community of 80,000. She will be taking iPad and Mac classes, and, as soon as her knee allows, line-dance, clown, and batontwirling classes. If she takes up golf, she’ll wear a bike helmet. ¶ Marion Marascio Vorheiss has recovered from 2 broken femurs and hopes to come to Boston to see everyone at the October Breast Cancer Walk. She recently retired from South Burlington High School after a stellar career as Biology Teacher and Science Department Chair. Her achievements include Science Teacher of the Year of VT and educational foreign travel, culminating in her election as commencement speaker at graduation. Marion had a “great send off and feels blessed.” Congrats, Marion. Granddaughter Addison is adorable and they just got back from Bethany Beach, DE. ¶ Joanne McKeough Eldred saw the picture of the ’68 ladies at the Cape Cod Luncheon and was delighted that our class was represented. She met Dr. Hays as they have a mutual friend and agrees she is quite impressive. Last October, Joanne and her husband bought a home in Asheville, NC, and now divide time between Savannah and Asheville. They will travel to Massachusetts to visit daughter Elizabeth, her husband, and 5-monthold grandson, Tim. Her other daughter Susie will graduate and receive her Doctorate from St. Andrew’s, Scotland, in spring 2013. She hopes to attend

the next Regis reunion and connect with old friends. ¶ Tish Brush Peske, her husband, and son Tim recently vacationed in Skagen, the northernmost part of Denmark. Always interesting geography from Tish! The year has been full for her, work-wise. Her coaching business is thriving and she has taken on the leadership training for Hofmann La Roche in Basel. Son Martin finished his PhD in the spring and teaches Sociology at the U of Lucerne, Switzerland. Tish will be in the US in September, which will give her the opportunity to see a few “Regisites and hopefully lure a few to Frankfurt.” She plans to attend our 45th reunion next spring! ¶ As for me, after my retirement, I cared for my father, who died last fall. He was a great husband, father, dedicated teacher, administrator, kind friend, and neighbor. We miss him. Colin still works on jet engines at GE. Peter is a bartender in Boston; he and his girlfriend Jade were engaged this spring. Last fall, I traveled to DC to participate in the Friends of Liberia activities for the 50th anniversary of the Peace Corps. It is hard to believe that it was 44 years ago that we first went to Liberia. The Liberia events in DC were moving, and fun—lots of grey hair and tie-dye! I finally feel retired. I relish seeing friends (and on weekdays!), visiting museums, reading lots and lots, being in my own home in the daylight, and sleeping past 5 am. I was never a morning person.

✒ Nora Quinlan Waystack, 126 Merrimack Street, #50, Newburyport, MA 01950, 978-462-0777, nqwaystack@ ¶ I hope the summer

months offered family fun and restful getaways. I spent the summer at our house on midcoast Maine, with husband Peter, family, and friends. We ate lobster, played tennis, boated, and chilled out. Regis roomie Patty Hanifey visited. She sold her home in Marblehead this August, and loves her new status as roving Irish traveler, staying with various friends while she decides where to next lay her head. I stay in touch with my freshman

roomie Kathy Dobbyn Bouchard and Nancy McCallum Brennerman. Kathy is in her 2nd year of retirement after various teaching and administrative assignments with the Portland School System. Kathy delights in her role as Grammy and occasional Substitute Teacher. Daughter, Amy, has a daughter, Campbell Paige Kennedy (3), and lives in Falmouth, ME. Son, Kevin, and wife live in Melrose, MA, and are the proud parents of Kathryn Marie, born in March. This past July, Nancy retired after 26 years with Unum Insurance as an Underwriter. She loves retirement, is busier than ever, and travelled with a group of women to the Stonehenge/Glastonbury area of England this year. Her summer activities concluded with a family vacation on Great Diamond Island in Casco Bay, Portland, ME. ¶ Maryann Shebek Korona , from Alexandria, VA, retired 6 years ago from her position as a Federal Agency Attorney, though she still teaches legal courses. Although Maryann only attended Regis through her sophomore year, she speaks fondly of her time with our class as an English major. Husband John also retired 6 years ago from employment with the federal government. They recently vacationed in Costa Rica to celebrate daughter Betsy’s 30th birthday. Betsy works for MSNBC in NYC as a Senior Producer and is completing her MBA at NYU. Maryann’s son Michael is completing his last year of law school at Roger Williams U in Rhode Island. ¶ Dyanne Russet Ridill resides in Needham, MA. She and husband John retired 2 years ago. Dyanne taught art for several years while her sons were young, but most recently worked in landscape design. They winter at their home in Palm Harbor, FL, where they golf. Dyanne and John have two sons, Park and David. Park recently was married this past June. David is 28 and lives in Idaho in the Teton Valley on the Wyoming border. Dyanne says, “It is God’s country without a doubt.” Dyanne visited David for 2 weeks this past summer participating outdoor activities she’s always loved. Dyanne occasionally runs into Sara Donaue Jakobek , who also lives in Needham.

Hello from your new class reporters! We would like to thank Sukey for her 15 dedicated years as our reporter. We only hope we can be half as good. ¶ What a great reunion we had celebrating 40 years! Thirty-five classmates attended reunion, with several of us staying over at Domitilla Hall. Friday night was the class party at Morrison House. After a wonderful dinner, we were entertained by Kathy Edwards Hall and her rendition of “Heard It Through the Grapevine.” Backup singers/dancers were Sharon McDede Kolor, Paula Downes Vogel, and Janice Carragher Charles. Mary Lou Wenthe

added her version of the “Regis Girl” showcasing 4 decades in 4 minutes. Janice Charles played guitar and sang songs we all remembered well. It was a fun night. We thank you all, especially our reunion committee, Marie Sullivan, Ann Hafey O’Neil, Mary Lou Wenthe, and Kathy Edwards Hall. ¶

Saturday was the Alumni Luncheon, class meeting and catch up with old friends. At night the International dinner was served under a tent at the tower. Dancing went well into the night and the class of ’72 showed off our stuff! We even group danced with our dynamic college President Antoinette M. Hays, PhD, RN. ¶ On Sunday we departed and vowed to meet again in 5 years, hopefully with more classmates. Check out some of the posted pictures on www. Search for the class of 1972. ¶ Audrey “AJ” Volckmann Leonard came in from Chicago. She is Assistant Director of Clinical Trials at Abbott Pharmaceuticals and looking forward to 2 weddings: her son, Dan’s, in October 2012 and her daughter, Mary’s, in June 2013. Ann McGrath lives in Exeter, NH. She is retired from teaching and works part time at the Phillips Exeter Academy library. Her husband, Steve, owns Exeter Music. Sukey Saunders volunteers at the Providence Animal Rescue League and runs a dog-boarding business from home. Fairlie Dalton and her husband were the lucky winners of a reunion-wide drawing for Red Sox tickets. They are also excited to attend an “Antiques Road Show” taping in Boston. The week after the reunion, Callie Shea Egan, attended her son’s graduation from Bowdoin

College. She and husband Daniel live in Newton, and she teaches. Kathy Ryan Carey works in banking and lives in Newburyport. ¶ As for myself, Susan Schissel Fogerty, my husband Bill and I have 4 kids. Bill is retired from the FAA. Our oldest, John, lives in Wyoming with granddaughter Erin. Our Mary and husband Devin are in Tucson, AZ. Daughter Laura is starting a graduate degree at Northeastern, and son Will lives in LA. We belong to all airline frequent flyer programs. While dancing at the reunion, Will texted me he’d just sky dived from 15,000 feet! I made my way to the bar quickly after that!


40th Reunion ✒ Pat D’Amore, pattidamore@gmail. com ¶ Diane (Dee) Rando Hampe teaches Art Education courses at Boston U and supervises student teachers. She converted her single-car garage into a studio the summer she retired and, when not preparing for class, she is there painting and making collages. Her work was in the BU faculty show this year and she exhibits locally through the Dedham Square Art Guild. Last year, Dee received an Honorable Mention for a pastel landscape in the Plymouth Art Guild’s annual juried exhibit. This summer she painted in Italy, fulfilling a dream she has had since her semester in Florence in 1972. ¶ Liz Johnson and husband Bob are settled where they hope to retire, a medieval-inspired timberframe in the woods south of Charlottesville, VA. She telecommutes from there to Oracle, where she has been for 24 years. She published an article on reconstruction as a research technique in Brill’s Encyclopedia of Dress and Textiles in the British Isles c. 450–1450, which grew out of her work in history. Liz and Bob recently travelled through northern France. ¶ Save the date for our upcoming 40th (yikes) reunion: May 17–19, 2013!

your mother-in-law as an inspiration, a joy, a gift to all who met her, the embodiment of grace, courage and love, and the person you want to be when you grow up, you are one very lucky daughter-in-law. Our prayers and support to Dr. Doug and Anne on this great loss. Sheila J. Murphy recently lost her sister-in-law, Karen, in a scuba accident. Karen was a beloved member of the Murphy clan and will be very sorely missed. Love and prayers to all. ¶ Shelia H. Murphy Cerjanec has taken up residence in Indian Rocks Beach, FL this summer and has proven herself to be quite the interior and exterior designer since moving in. She is also a killer Words with Friends player on Facebook. ¶ Sheila J. Murphy continues to teach Art at Matignon HS in Cambridge. She is a world class travel companion and is most gracious in pushing me around on our annual trips somewhere with Linda Faldetta. ¶ Dr. Linda is still a psychologist with the Comm. of MA Department of Developmental Services. Linda and I had a great weekend up in Kennebunkport doing the accessible trails and eating fresh caught seafood. Linda and her husband, Tom Lepisto, continue to organize and lead cross-country skiing treks in the winter and hike the rest of the year throughout New England and the Southwest. They also have fabulous vacations to the South Pacific, Egypt, and South America and anywhere there are wonderful astronomical event sightings. ¶ Cathy Stare has retired as Asst. Superintendent of the Rockville NY Diocese Dept of Ed. She has recently finished an advanced certificate in educational leadership from St. John’s U, NY. She is leading some groups in medical ethics at the medical school at SUNY Stony Brook. She is supervising student teachers for St Joseph College on Long Island NY. For fun, she continues to hike the Adirondacks. She has bagged all 46 of the highest caps and most of the less lofty. She loves hiking Long Island and attending theater, when not working on community issues for her congregation, The Sister of Charity of Halifax. ¶ MJ Curtain May dropped a note to say Kathy Moore Donohue and her family visited Skaneateles, NY twice this summer. Kathy was on her way to participate in a pilgrimage to Camino de Santiago de Compostela. MJ had wonderful trips to California and Cape Cod to visit with family with a focus on spoiling grandchildren. She also is a terrific Words with Friends competitor. I wish I could spell as well and had as good a vocabulary; she slaughters me regularly. ¶ Anne and Doug Meade will be celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary in October.

Bonnie Walsh Davidson reports on Facebook that 2 of her 3 children are married and 1 is still at home. If you are on Facebook, please join the Regis Class of ’77 group. ¶ So after all the news of empty nesters, kids off to college and married, and even a few grandchildren in the mix, it seems strange to report that my daughter is in the 2nd grade. My husband Ira and I adopted AiLi from China 5 years ago. After 32 years in advertising at Arnold Worldwide, I left in June to become an almost fulltime mommy. I’ll be consulting while balancing parent, Girl Scout leader responsibilities, and all the other stuff that I’m discovering goes along with being a mom to an active kid.

Cabrini greatly influenced Annamaria Cobuccio Paone’s (my) career path. Biotechnology was just emerging during the 1980’s, and Sr. saw the future of science in the biotechnology industry. She would take any opportunity to tell me that I must consider a job in biotechnology. I recall a time in the mailroom when she appeared opposite my mailbox unexpectedly and said only, “Biotechnology.” I followed her advice and accepted a research position at a biotechnology company in Cambridge after graduation. Four years ago I accepted a position at a biotechnology company in Woburn as a Sr. Clinical Project Manager in Drug Supply. I have been working in this industry for the past 25 years and find it very rewarding. I live in North Reading with my husband Peter (we celebrated our 23rd anniversary in August) and 3 children: Cristian (18) will be attending UMass Amherst in the fall; Julian (16); and Sofia (12). I garden in my free time.

¶ At our 10th Reunion this past May, high on the hilltop in sunshine and shadow, 10 years felt like a mere 10 minutes. Our love for Regis College was evident, as we had a strong showing throughout the weekend. Kathryn Phillips Livingston even flew from Albuquerque, NM, to attend. One of the many highlights of the reunion was an unexpected rivalry with the class of 2007—you may have won the ping pong battle in Maria Hall this time, ladies, but we’ll win the war! Our class certainly hasn’t lost our ability to party: We danced the night away under the tent at the

Award during the reunion luncheon for her contributions to Regis. She, Kelly Linehan and others were instrumental in orchestrating the unforgettable weekend. ¶ The 10 years since graduating Regis College have brought about many changes, not only within our class, but in the world. As the senior class during 9/11, we have come into our womanhood during turbulent times. Despite difficulties, within the warmth and love of the Regis College community during our reunion, we were innocent and carefree again. When the reunion ended, it was difficult to say goodbye.

Funeral Reflection for Our Mother BY JUDITH KInG WeBeR ’61


“I if I had

Our mother, Lillian Marie Snell King ’34, was a remarkable and accomplished woman by any standard. Mom’s lifespan of 100 years and 52 days is, in and of itself, remarkable. During Mom’s century the world literally transformed itself. Mom was born two months before the Titanic sank on April 12, 1912. She died in the month Apple Computer rolled out the iPad 3. In between, she experienced the Great Depression, two world wars and several armed conflicts. She saw women gain the right to vote, the Civil Rights movement, the Atomic Age commence, and man walk on the moon. She saw telephones go from operator-dependent crank boxes to the wireless cell phones attached to the ears of almost everyone. She saw transportation by horsedrawn wagon and foot, to motor vehicle travel for almost all. She saw the computer development that has transformed communications. Mom was never just a passive observer: she actively embraced the entire world that surrounded her with fascinated curiousity and enthusiasm. She was vitally interested in it all. She made it her business to learn have had a happy life, continuously, virtually to do it all over again, to the end. She was a teacher by profession and it was her core .” belief that education was a lifetime process, and that it was both your duty and responsibility to yourself and to your fellow travelers on this earth to be aware and keep abreast of the world around you. Her faith was the alpha and omega of her existence. Until her final breath her faith was

I would do it exactly the same way

31409p72-ibc.indd 72

unwavering. Mom’s faith was a silent and deeply personal faith. She did not wear it on her sleeve. She was never “preachy” nor was she sanctimonious or maudlin about her faith. She had scant patience for those who were. Rather, she lived it every day, teaching by example. For many, many years, she kept a small wooden cross on her night table. In the past months, the cross migrated to her hands. She was holding it when she died. She is holding it now. It was not that her faith was unchallenged. She lost her mother at age 5 to tuberculosis, and her father died months before her wedding, at age 25, having struggled with Multiple Sclerosis for 14 years. She lost our dad at age 56, a loss she never quite got over. Ultimately, she came to terms with her losses. She knew how to make lemonade out of lemons better than anyone I ever knew. Family meant the world to Mom. She had a thirst for the tight bonds of a real nuclear family. Perhaps that is why she was drawn like a moth to the flame to the rollicking, frolicking, 10-sibling Irish immigrant family of my dad. It was so different from the solid and supportive, but serious adults-only home of her childhood. Her marriage filled in a space in her life. She adored my dad and they shared a fine and happy marriage. Lillian remained until the end, “Leo’s girl.” In the past few years, Mom was well aware that the sand in her life’s hourglass was rapidly dwindling. She accepted this fact with grace and dignity. She reminisced about her past, sharing a myriad of memories. It was one of her last, best, and most valued gifts to us. It seems fitting and appropriate to close this reflection with Mom’s own words spoken to me not so long ago: “I have lived a very long life. I have had a happy life. I went to all the places I wanted to go. I did all the things I wanted to do. If I had it to do all over again, I would do it exactly the same way. I am not afraid to die. I am ready to go.” Folks, life does not get better than that!
