neighbor That is what our campus ministers said to students at our opening Convocation this academic year. How better to declare the overarching philosophy of Regis College? It is a timeless message lived and expressed through the ages by the Sisters of St. Joseph. It is a particularly fitting sentiment for this issue of Regis Today as well, for within these pages we celebrate new scholarships in memory of two of our presidents—Sister Jeanne d’Arc O’Hare and Sister Thérèse Higgins—and recognize hundreds of alumni and friends who donate so generously to advance the mission of Regis College. “We are part of something more.” It is an abiding theme on Founders’ Day at the start of each academic year, when we gather with new and returning students to remind them—to remind all of us—that we are part of a small, close-knit campus community, yes, but one with a much broader vision and purpose. We have a heritage. Our dedication to teaching, learning, and service spans the academic disciplines and the world, evidenced beautifully by the Erat Scholars Program, and enthusiastically with the launch of our Center for Global Connections—both highlighted in this issue. Our commitment to educating students for success in the 21st century is demonstrated by new degree programs in Justice Studies, Interdisciplinary Fine Arts, Nuclear Imaging, a doctoral program in Education, and expanded integration of iPads and other technological innovations across the curriculum. Our “Dean Team” and others talk about these initiatives in the pages that follow. Our shared obligation to securing the future of Regis College is manifested by increasing enrollment, by a master plan for the physical development of the campus, and by continued growth and prudent management of finances. All of us—students, alumni, families, friends, faculty, and staff—have an important role in the continued success of Regis College, remembering all the while that we are indeed part of something more. Influenced both by the gentleness of St. Francis de Sales and the excellence of the Jesuits who spoke of the magis, “the more,” the Sisters formulated the idea of “excellence tempered by gentleness” that is the essence of the “something more” we seek to share. Most of us will never be on the Forbes list of the richest people, but with your help we will all be inscribed in the book written in heaven among those who have passed around what is good, who have understood that sharing is a bond, and who have kept building up Regis again and again to meet the needs of rising generations. Join in. Stay with us. Regis College is going places.

Gospel of Life

“As we move through the second decade of the millennium, business as usual is not enough,” His Eminence Seán P. Cardinal O’Malley, OFM Cap., Archbishop of Boston, told Regis graduates in his May 11 commencement address. “We must be a team of missionaries, moving from a maintenance mode to a missionary one.” Regis awarded undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral degrees across a range of academic disciplines to 548 students under an enormous white tent on the College’s front lawn—a new venue for the ceremony. “Our hope is that today’s graduates will discover more deeply the radical sense of our vocation to live the social Gospel, to put others first and seek the last place, to be close to Jesus who came to serve and not to be served,” said Cardinal O’Malley, who received an honorary doctor of laws degree from Regis College. Researcher, social activist, and philanthropist Kathryn Erat also received an honorary doctor of laws degree (see story, page 18).

As in all of his works, the details go beyond pure visual description; they amplify the meditative mood of the row of modest houses, prominent trees, flat stretch of sand, and dark sea.

Regis Focuses on West Campus Plan

The College announced in July that it has shelved plans to develop the East Campus and will concentrate on fulfillment of a master plan for the West Campus, bringing litigation with the town of Weston to an end. “Our focus is on the implementation of the master plan on the West Campus,” said President Antoinette M. Hays, PhD, RN. “This decision is a positive one for us all, and gives a true picture of the relationship between Regis and the town.” The master plan includes creation of a stunning new quadrangle framed by College Hall, St. Joseph’s Hall, Alumnae Hall, and Maria Hall; a 72-bed addition to Maria Hall; and renovation of the library. Work is underway on this phase of the master plan, with a 2015 completion date.

Time Traveler By peter kent


Alexis Nicole Zallas revels in the past. On any given day in recent years, Zallas could be the patriotic wife of a powerful general, a colonial hurling taunts at beleaguered British soldiers, or a performer in a traditional Greek dance group. She can also argue the relative merits of classic movies, television shows, and old radio shows—from the Marx Brothers to Jack Benny, Cary Grant to John Wayne—which pre-date her by several decades. But right now she’s focused on the present: veterinary school. “I’ve always wanted to be a veterinarian,” says the Class of 2013 valedictorian and biology major, now in her first year at the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine. “I’ve loved animals for as long as I can remember. I think it’s because I watched John Wayne westerns with my dad while growing up. I just fell in love with the horses. My dad sometimes jokes that I only watch the movies for the horses. As I got older, I realized that combining my love for science and passion for animals would make an exciting career.” Zallas grew up in Lexington, just down the road from Regis (and from Hanscom Field, where her father, a 40-year career Air Force officer, still works today in

a civilian capacity). Like many people of the region, she became fascinated with her hometown’s place in history. “I am an eighteenth century historical re-enactor,” she said. “Growing up in Lexington prompted me to get involved in that. I frequently re-enact at the Minute Man National Historical Park, in several capacities as a member of the Guild of Historical Interpreters, and I also perform as a citizenwitness at the Boston Massacre.” Her favorite role? “Americanborn Margaret Kemble Gage, the wife of General Thomas Gage, the military governor of Massachusetts in 1775,” Zallas said. “Her story is wonderful—a woman from New Jersey high society who some suspect remained sympathetic to her country rather than her to husband by aiding the Sons of Liberty.” When not immersed in America’s colonial past, Zallas is zealous in pursuit of another passion—her Hellenic culture. She’s a member of the Bostonbased Sons and Daughters of Alexander the Great dance group. She and her fellow dancers traveled to Macedonia, Greece, this past summer to perform, sightsee, and bask in their Greek heritage.

She participated in a three-day convention involving dance groups from all over Macedonia. “Greek music and dance have such a rich and beautiful history. I cannot adequately describe the thrill of participating and what it means to me,” she said. “And don’t even get me started on Greek cooking. There’s nothing better than sharing the kitchen with my mom. She’s made me the cook I am today. Some of my fondest memories are cooking side by side with her while taking intermittent dancing breaks—because you just can’t cook without Greek music!” Right now, however, Zallas is devoting all of her time to another role, that of a self-described “science geek.” It’s a passion cultivated and nurtured in her Regis science classes and labs, guided and encouraged by her professors and internship supervisors. “I always want to understand why: Why does this happen? Why do we see this result after administering a medication? I especially love expanding my understanding from the microscopic level to the macroscopic level—what’s happening on a cellular level versus what am I seeing in an actual patient.” A huge boost to her studies and interests came via internships: a three-month stint with the

combining my love of science and passion for animals would make an exciting career.”

Massachusetts Audubon Society, and several years at the Veterinary Emergency & Specialty Center of New England (VESCONE) in Waltham. “I spent four years at VESCONE—summer and winter breaks—everywhere from the emergency room through radiology and surgery,” said Zallas. “I learned so much from the veterinarians and staff. It was a fantastic opportunity and I believe this experience ultimately helped me prepare for veterinary school and will give me a preview of what I will be capable of after graduating.” Her “present”—for the next four years—is vet school. Her future? “I’d like to do a residency in small

animal surgery,” said Zallas. “But I’m also interested in completing a master’s degree in public health and working for the Centers for Disease Control. I really enjoyed microbiology at Regis, which made me consider working for the CDC.” In her valedictory address in May, it seemed especially fitting for Zallas to borrow wisdom from ancient Greek philosophers while speaking to her classmates of the present and looking eagerly to the future: “Antiphanes said that ‘everything yields to diligence’ and Aristotle believed that ‘the energy of the mind is the essence of life.’ ” Diligence and energy of mind. Traits that will continue to serve Zallas well into the future.

“Because of our focus on experiential learning, coupled with our emphasis on the values of our founding Sisters of St. Joseph, Regis students enter the workplace with the skills, confidence, and dedication that allow them to contribute very quickly to just about any organization,” said Susan Clancy Kennedy ’81, director of internships and career placement. “Our undergraduate student population is highly diverse and represents an array of academic backgrounds and practical experiences,” she continued. “And many of our graduate students already have résumés of professional experience; when combined with their advanced degrees, they are able to add value from day one.” To learn more, contact Susan Kennedy at 781-7687271 or susan.kennedy@regis

Points of Pride by Bryan geary


Ask Rob Riley about coaching and building a successful athletics program and he’ll tell you that it has little to do with the X’s and O’s. Hired as the director of athletics for the Pride in December 2012 and armed with 25 years of coaching experience at the collegiate and professional levels, Riley knows that succeeding in this business is all about the people. His vision for Regis athletics starts here: “Commitment, accountability, and loyalty—to the school and to each other,” Riley said. “We want to live by those three words.” College hockey fans will likely recognize Riley’s name right away. And for good reason. Not only was he a four-year letter winner for the Boston College Eagles—and a co-captain in 1977–78 for the national runner-up—he is part of a 62-year legacy of coaching at the United States Military Academy at West Point. “I think in looking back, that’s probably the proudest athletic achievement I have,” Riley said of his family’s history there. Born and raised in West Point, Riley spent his childhood watching his father, Jack Riley, coach the Army hockey team. He fondly recalls the school bus dropping him off at the rink, where he spent countless hours as a child. For as long as he can remember, Riley has wanted to coach, and his father’s influence is a big reason. Keeping with tradition, Riley says the coaching gene has also been passed on to his son Brett, a senior hockey player at Hobart who has already started coaching in the summer. The elder Riley spent 36 years as the head coach at Army, squeezing in a gold medal as the coach of the 1960 U.S. Olympic team along the way. Rob took over for his father in the 1986-87 season, just two years after leading Division III Babson College to a national championship. Brian Riley, his brother, then took the helm in 2004 and has held it ever since. Riley has also spent time in professional hockey, as a coach and a consultant for the Columbus Blue

Jackets. In two years with the Springfield Falcons, an AHL affiliate of the Blue Jackets, Riley was able to help young players looking to take the next step in their professional careers, an experience he characterized as “very rewarding.” So, what made Regis—a school without a hockey program—so attractive to a lifelong hockey guy? The people. “That was the thing that impressed me the most in the interview process,” said Riley. “I read everything I could on the website, but until you meet the people and you are around the campus, you don’t really know what the culture is.” Upon meeting with President Antoinette M. Hays and Vice President of Communications, Marketing, and Enrollment Paul Vaccaro, Riley found that they were all immediately in agreement on where Regis College and Regis athletics could go. “You have great leadership and people above you pushing hard to do the right things,” he said. “That really made me want this job.” Riley, who now lives in Needham with his wife Debbie, didn’t follow the traditional path to becoming an athletic director, but it was clear to Vaccaro that he was the right person for the job. “Rob has been an outstanding leader, mentor, and motivator at all levels in his professional career,” said Vaccaro. “He brought those same skills with him to Regis and so far the results have been outstanding.” Riley believes that his history as a coach provided him with the right skill set for a job like this. “In the old days, the football and the basketball coach became the athletic director,” he said. “Now it’s changed a lot. I felt like I could really make a difference at a school like Regis.” Succeeding Marybeth Lamb, now the athletic director at Bridgewater State University after 10 years with Regis, Riley heads into his first full academic year at the helm. Winning is an important

Commitment. Accountability. Loyalty. We want to live by those three words.

goal in his eyes, but he is also focused on succeeding in other areas. Stressing academic excellence and community involvement, he notes that keeping the student-athlete experience a positive one is among his top priorities. “We want athletics to enhance and improve the Regis experience every step of the way,” said Riley. Recent graduate Kara Donovan embodies this message. As a senior last spring, the two-sport athlete won the New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) Senior Female Student-Athlete of the Year award. A standout in soccer and softball, Riley and the entire Regis community were very proud of her. Riley aims to keep improving and advancing the Regis brand, and the stunning athletic complex that opened in 2009 provides a great boost to these efforts, as the Pride now boasts some of the best facilities among small universities in the region—but it doesn’t stop there. “The new facilities really changed the landscape for Regis and Regis athletics,” said Riley. “Our job now on the fundraising side is to get stands in there, get a press box in there, build offices and locker rooms.”

The past summer saw a face-lift for the gymnasium—new carpets, new paint, and refinishing the gym floor. To Riley, these are the types of things that can boost pride and impress prospective studentathletes, fans, and the opposition. Athletics at Regis has seen many changes in the last decade, including the addition of men’s sports starting in 2007. But through the changes, many Pride teams have experienced great success. In the 2012–13 academic year, Regis racked up four league championships and finished second in three other sports. In Riley’s words, “that’s a great year for any team, any program.” While he is busy trying to build on that success, Riley says that the questions still come in about adding other sports. However, the goal is to make the sports Regis currently has the best they can be before thinking about making further additions. For now, Riley already has plenty to focus on. “For me, it has really been a blessing that hockey was not here,” he said. “We have 16 teams and a full staff that all need attention, so it’s been a relief not to worry about hockey.”

The Dean Team


Like any administrative team, Malcolm O. Asadoorian III, PhD, and Penelope M. Glynn, RN, PhD, bring individual strengths, varied experiences and perspectives, and unique personalities to the table. Yet from the moment they began working together as the academic deans of Regis College, they clicked, and they use terms like “team” and “complementary” and “collaborative” in describing their working relationship. Dr. Asadoorian joined Regis in Summer 2012 as dean of the College of Liberal Arts, Education and Social Sciences. He was fresh off a long stint at Lynn University in Florida, where he was a professor of economics with dual appointments in the College of Liberal Education and the College of Business and Management. He was also chair of the Center for Interdisciplinary Studies and associate dean for assessment and faculty development in the Office of Academic Affairs. Prior to Lynn, he was a postdoctoral research associate professor at MIT, and also taught at Fisher College, Assumption College, and Anna Maria College. He earned PhD and MA degrees in economics from Clark University, and a bachelor’s degree from Assumption. Dr. Glynn was appointed dean of the School of Nursing, Science and Health Professions in 2013, after serving as interim dean when incumbent Antoinette Hays was named Regis College president in 2011. She joined the Regis faculty in 2004, bringing with her 24 years of experience in administrative and faculty positions at Simmons College, Lesley University, and Boston College. Prior to becoming dean, she was the coordinator of the generic master’s program, and then chair of the postlicensure graduate nursing program. A registered nurse, she holds BS and MS degrees in nursing, and a PhD in sociology from Boston University. The Dean Team sat down recently with Communications Director and Regis Today Editor Peter Kent to discuss issues, trends, and challenges in higher education, and what Regis is doing to prepare students for life and careers in the 21st century.

There is such an emphasis these days on colleges and universities preparing students for careers. One comedian recently bemoaned pursing a major in philosophy, only to discover that in this uncertain economy, the philosophy companies aren't hiring these days. So, why a liberal arts education? Dr. Glynn: I started my career with the

traditional ‘diploma’ education—a threeyear nursing program that was affiliated with a hospital—and I wouldn’t give that up for anything. But it can’t suffice in today’s world. If we become so vocation-oriented that we don’t provide that strong liberal arts background, we’re not preparing students to relate to and understand the patients they are caring for, which is critical to developing a trusting relationship. Without that liberal arts foundation, you can’t possibly adapt to the rapid changes occurring in health care, and you can’t see the big picture. That’s why our undergraduate nursing majors don’t start their nursing courses until the junior year, because they get a full two years of liberal arts and sciences before they ever even touch nursing. And that’s critical. Dr. Asadoorian: We must prepare students for their respective professions, yes, but simultaneously we must answer the call for proving that a strong liberal arts foundation is essential. When we say a liberal arts education produces lifelong learners, we mean those essential skills of critical thinking and writing, oral communication, quantitative

11 reasoning, scientific inquiry and reasoning, information literacy, and integrative skills—pulling them together and applying them. These skills transcend all disciplines. The liberal arts foundation is the critical ingredient that allows individuals to learn and to adapt throughout their life.

In August, President Obama announced a plan to “measure college performance through a new ratings system so students and families have the information to select schools that provide the best value.” The ratings would eventually be used by Congress to “tie federal student aid to college performance,” says the White House. A step in the right direction? Dr. Glynn: I think it’s time for us

to be held accountable for what we say we do. Health care has been undergoing this for some time now, and it’s for the better. Hospitals are rated based on their outcomes: You can go online, you can look, you can choose. You

can see exactly where the hospital falls; you can see where the nursing home falls. And I think that students, parents, and adult learners have the right to know, ‘where does this school fall, what are their outcomes?’ If I’m paying upwards of $160,000 for a private education, then I want to know if students are achieving what a college says they’re going to achieve. Dr. Asadoorian: It’s about evaluating effectiveness objectively and based on evidence—unlike in the past, when it was mostly subjective. Prior to the academic assessment revolution, when schools were asked if students were learning what was claimed, the inevitable response was, ‘yes.’ But now, with academic assessment becoming part of our culture, there is an objective, evidence-based means of evaluation. It’s about equal access to information, so that individuals can make informed decisions, and continuous improvement of student learning. That’s really

at the heart of assessment, and I think that holds true not only in the health care industry but in education as well. Regis has been ramping up its global agenda in recent years, through curricular initiatives, expanded study abroad and service opportunities, international student recruitment, faculty scholarship, and a new Center for Global Connections. Why is this a priority? Dr. Asadoorian: Our economies are

interconnected. Our markets are interconnected. To ignore that is to ignore reality. And if we predicate ourselves on preparing lifelong learners in the liberal arts tradition for professional practice in the 21st century, we must embrace globalization to make sure that we are truly preparing our students to be citizens of the world. Our students are going to be out there operating in a global network. Dr. Glynn: In nursing and in other health professions, we must teach

global health because we’re too interconnected not to teach it. Even up to the early 2000s, you learned about the health of your country and your populations and that’s all you learned. But because populations now travel back and forth, you have to know and understand what’s going on in other parts of the world. You have to know that in Africa, immunization—or the lack thereof—is a huge problem, both for that continent and others as Africans travel. You have to think about epidemics and how quickly they can spread. We now talk about 250 people infected with SARS in China as an epidemic; it is a huge issue, because it can travel so quickly all over the world. Regis established a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program in 2007, and this fall launched a second doctoral program: a Doctor of Education (EdD) degree. Why these two fields? Dr. Asadoorian: In many ways, the

nursing programs are the cornerstone of the School of Nursing, Science and Health Professions. What is the cornerstone of the School of Liberal Arts, Education

and Social Sciences? I would say it is education. Education truly envelops the liberal arts, and so a Doctor of Education program acknowledges and strengthens the cornerstone, which is the driving motivation for the new EdD. Instead of having a very discipline-specific, researchoriented PhD program, we feel it’s more consistent with our mission and our strategic vision to offer a doctoral program that encompasses all disciplines in the liberal arts and is in the spirit of the scholar-practitioner. The EdD focus is on higher education leadership. It is a natural progression—in the spirit of reinvigorating the liberal arts and establishing education as a cornerstone—to build upon our established and successful undergraduate education licensure program and our Master of Arts in Teaching to complete the cycle with a doctoral program in education. What’s really wonderful when we talk about a liberal arts education that’s quality and distinctive is that we now have at Regis a doctorate in higher education leadership which is just that: quality and distinctive.

What lies ahead for academics at Regis? Dr. Glynn: I see us bursting at

the seams with students, with programs in the sciences that are robust and cutting-edge and really contributing to the need for graduates in the STEM disciplines. I see a beautiful new or renovated science building. I’d love to see an interdisciplinary health professions laboratory that reflects someone’s home— because that’s where health care is going to be delivered—where you could have students in social work, nursing, occupational therapy, and other areas all working together to solve problems and deliver care. I want

Dr. Glynn: Our Doctor of Nursing Practice was one of the first DNP programs in Massachusetts, admitting its first class in 2007. As is often the case, Regis was on the forefront in addressing the need for doctoral preparation for nurses in advanced practice, in particular for nurse practitioners. Our program also prepares DNPs in a variety of areas including, but not limited to, health policy, integrative health, and informatics. The 62 graduates of the program serve as leaders in nursing education, and in the delivery of health care, including the delivery of care to the most vulnerable populations. We had one student who, in completing the work for his DNP degree, successfully created and funded a ‘Mobile Health Care Van’ and is currently delivering care to the homeless. The 92 students who are currently active in the DNP program love the direct application of what they are learning to their practice, as well as the flexibility that our weekend program offers them. They are truly leaders in the practice arena.

Dr. Asadoorian: We are an institution on the move—riding the wave of global education, interdisciplinary studies, and technology. We are providing a quality, distinctive education that is strong in the liberal arts with innovative professional programs—an institution that truly prepares students for lifelong learning for the 21st century. The work of the School of Liberal Arts, Education and Social Sciences in the past year can be characterized with one word— transformation. We will continue to transform the liberal arts for

Regis and work on developing new academic programs that exemplify excellence in professional practice motivated by a strong foundation in the liberal arts. Continued growth of our education programs, the humanities, language education, business, quantitative studies, and writing across the curriculum are clearly in our future.

BREAKING NEWS As Regis Today was going to press, President Antoinette M. Hays announced the appointment of Dr. Malcolm Asadoorian as Regis’s new vice president of Academic Affairs, effective immediately. Dr. Asadoorian will retain his role as academic dean until a successor is appointed next year.

“The gamma camera enables great interactive teaching,” said Lauren Shanbrun (below left), assistant professor of medical imaging and program coordinator of nuclear medicine technology. Thirty undergraduate students have declared a major in medical imaging with a concentration in nuclear medicine, said David Gilmore (below right), associate dean of undergraduate affairs, who also directs the Regis imaging programs. “And so far, all of our graduates have employment in nuclear medicine, and we have achieved 100 percent first-time pass rate on the national certification exams.”

Fran Murphy’s documentaries tell stories of perseverance


dRe∂m Work On a crisp September afternoon, Fran Murphy ’66

chatted on her cozy back deck in Maryland, reliving her Regis days and her 40-plus-year career in television, in which she has earned seven Emmys and numerous other awards. Her ever-present dogs— Nipper and Chipper—ran circles around her excitedly, barking and leaping. She’d interrupt herself to laughingly tell them to get lost, enjoying the canine chaos around her. It’s a parallel to her professional life: Though “being in TV” could be a frenzied, nonstop stressor, Murphy is laid-back enough to be both completely immersed and happily relaxed. That’s because television production—in Murphy’s case, TV documentaries—marries her skills with her passion. Her time at Regis laid the groundwork for a body of work that exposes critical thinking, wordplay and investigation. For an English major (where she studied structure and style) with an art history background (where composition and form became apparent), combined with an inherent desire to pursue social justice issues, journalism was a perfect profession. “At Regis, we were taught to be compassionate,” said Murphy, “to care about people who didn’t have anything. That’s what it means to be Catholic: find a way to help, whether it’s donating money or your time or whatever. Talking to people and telling their stories, that’s a way to help.”

he path to finding her career wasn’t smooth, mused Murphy. In the 1970s, women weren’t exactly setting records in the television industry. “I’d gone to see a career counselor before I went back to school. I met with a guy who told me, ‘Television? No one ever gets hired in that—that’s a low percentage job. What you want to do is go into library science.’ And I thought, ‘The hell I do!’ ” A quiet occupation was never really an option for this scrappy woman who thought she’d grow up to be a teacher, even though her father didn’t initially approve: “You will never make a very good living teaching English literature.” “He was a scientist and I was a goofball,” Murphy admitted. But he was right and she was glad her career led her here instead. After Regis, Murphy took classes at Boston University and at Milwaukee Area Technical College, and landed a job in TV production. Her initial responsibilities: hoisting heavy equipment. It probably never dawned on her, slight-figured and doe-eyed, that it wasn’t an obvious place for women. “I was always the girl on the scaffolding,” Murphy reminisced. “The cameras were not the little light cameras we have now. They were 50 pounds.” She worked at television stations in Boston, Milwaukee, and D.C., and eventually moved into producing documentaries for local TV stations, AARP, and the Pentagon Channel. She’s met many a famous person, including Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Dole, Walter Cronkite, and Clive Cussler. “She has the ability to talk to anybody and not get star-struck,” said longtime friend and video editor Bob Kanner, who has worked with Murphy since she moved to D.C. 30 years ago. Her day-to-day life now consists of working as an editor and producer: interviewing sources,

editing scripts, and combining video and photos to yield a finished product. Then there are all the non-job-related tasks of a freelancer—like networking, meeting with potential clients, learning new technology to make herself more marketable—and the personal—being a mother to her son and daughter, and grandmother to three girls. She has worked on projects as far-ranging as female fitness and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, but lights up when talking about two recent documentaries on civil rights issues: “The Dream Began Here,” for which she received an Emmy award, and “Hattie’s Lost Legacy,” which earned her a Gracie, an award presented by

Though many of the documentaries have dealt specifically with past events, it’s through this that Murphy feels she’s been able to illuminate current issues in Washington. Issues of poverty make it “so hard to live here sometimes,” she said, even though she was in love with D.C. since she moved from the Midwest in the early ’80s. While working on “Dream,” she “met people in the poorest parts of Washington,” a stark reminder that many of Martin Luther King’s dreams have not been met for poor African-Americans. “People desperately want jobs,” she said. “There’s a yearning to be in the mainstream. But there are a lot of barriers. You meet these

“Ah-ha” MOMent the Alliance for Women in Media. She’s also won awards from the National Association of Black Journalists for both "Hattie" and a piece on the Howard Theatre restoration project. “The Dream Began Here” walks the viewer through iconic neighborhoods in D.C., illustrating the way African-Americans contributed to the formation of the capital city. It’s sometimes uncomfortable—slaves helped build the White House, and the banks of the Potomac were slave-trading grounds—but it’s also a story of triumph. And it’s a modern-day story as well.

people and you can’t help but feel for them.” Telling people’s stories excites her, especially when they illustrate a larger point about our society. Murphy almost gushes as she discusses how she comes to learn what makes people tick, and about finding that “ah-ha” moment that explains why something happened. While researching “Dream,” Murphy found footage of Dr. King and Roy Wilkins (then the head of the NAACP) on Meet the Press. The footage speaks for itself of the deeply divided time. “So they’re on Meet the Press and it’s all white men asking them questions and

one of the first questions is, ‘So if all these black people come to Washington, aren’t there going to be riots?’ Oliver Stone could not have asked for a better setup,” Murphy said, “because the guy asked the question—and it pans from one white guy to another white guy. There were five white guys asking two black guys these questions. It was like it was out of a movie.” “Hattie’s Lost Legacy” similarly highlights civil rights issues, this time highlighting the first African-American woman to win an Oscar—Hattie McDaniel, who won best supporting actress for her portrayal of Mammy in “Gone With the Wind.” The documentary explores racism in Hollywood and the rebuff McDaniel received from the black community for playing roles that were seen as subservient. When McDaniel died of breast cancer in her 50s, she allegedly

bequeathed her Oscar to Howard University, but it never made it there. The award’s whereabouts are still unknown. “Her story is complicated and really sad,” Murphy said, but she really enjoyed telling it because “it was like an onion. It is one of my favorite projects.”

Murphy tries to stay grounded amid the schedule of a thriving business and the bubble of Washington. “I try to remember that the real world is not like Washington,” she said. “People forget who they are here. You have to remember you’re not who you’re covering. How can you maintain your integrity if you’re worried about being invited to the next party? “I guess you just try to impress them with your work,” she laughs. She seems to be doing that just

fine, as the awards—and her peers—would attest. “The best thing that she knows how to do really well is leave you alone, let the editor do his own thing for a little bit, then she’ll come in and just make it be what she wants it to be,” said Kanner. “I might argue with her about this or that, but very rarely. She’s pretty much spot-on in what she does.” Murphy, ever self-deprecating, demurred. “I’m probably pretty normal, though my son doesn’t think I am. He says, ‘Come on, Mom, no one’s normal in D.C.’ ” But that’s to be expected from someone who spends her life telling other people’s stories. “I learned to respect others regardless of their station in life or opinions,” she said. “A good journalist withholds judgment and allows others to voice their thoughts and ideas.”



class Erat Scholars are exploring global roots, and routes, of faith and service

A school bus rumbled through a maze of dirt roads in Nairobi, Kenya, heading east to the town of Kitui. Inside, Regis students and their mentors sat side-by-side in the intense June heat, sharing stories and making plans. Passengers Jeffrie Parrish ’14 and Kathryn Erat, a retired computer scientist and the trip’s benefactor, anticipated the journey ahead.

hey were headed for Nyumbani, a community of orphans affected by HIV/AIDS. Erat was looking forward to a reunion with her friend Sister Mary Owens, Nyumbani’s executive director. Parrish couldn’t wait to interact with the children.


Parrish and Erat first met at Regis: he, among 10 students in a semester-long religious studies and philosophy seminar and overseas travel program launched in 2007; she, the passionate and generous friend of Regis who makes the program possible. The two had bonded after class, methodically organizing a way to bring soccer supplies to Kenya. The relationship continued at the Mary Ward Center, their Nairobi hostel, where they discussed everything from science and religion to Erat’s international experiences. Though 50 years separate them, the conversation was effortless.

Kathryn Erat, founder and benefactor of the Erat Scholars Program, enjoys a conversation with graduates of the faith-based study abroad program.

Parrish said Erat impacted his life in ways he never imagined. She taught him to take a daydream and make it a reality. “I told Kathryn my vision and she met with me following every seminar session to discuss details,” said Parrish, a studentathlete who, prior to the trip, collected 450 pieces of donated soccer equipment, packed it all up with the help of seminar classmates, and then arranged for all of them

to carry it on the flight to Kenya and the trip to the Nyumbani schools. “Soccer is huge there. And it’s more than just a game— coaches talk with their players about AIDS, abstinence, even gang violence.” It is this kind of story that makes the Erat Scholars Program more than just a study-abroad program. It’s a pathway to seeing the world more holistically, and with a religious and philosophical perspective. The program takes 10 students to various parts of the world each year to experience firsthand a culture they studied all semester. The classes have covered Jerusalem; France, Switzerland and Italy; China; and Kenya. Each trip has an overarching theme: The first trip traced the roots of Christianity in Rome; in France, Switzerland, and Italy compassion took center stage; in Kenya, service. It’s been a life-changing experience for each of the students who have been a part of it. “I was concerned that young people were turning away from the Church and wanted them to realize that Christianity was more than what they read in the newspapers. It is my obligation to teach them to look at the Church in a different way,” said Erat, a slight woman with tousled grey hair and lively blue eyes who, in addition

Snapshots from around the world







1 Erat Scholars posed for a group shot in Rome. 2 The Regis College Glee Club and Alumnae Chorus traveled to Spain on concert tour during spring break in March. The trip included a Mass performance at Barcelona’s La Sagrada Familia Church, the unfinished masterpiece of architect Antoni Gaudi, and a recital in the monastery in the mountain village of Montserrat. 3 A spring service/solidarity journey to Villa El Salvador in Peru provided 17 Regis students with a heightened understanding of the problems and conditions of poverty, and an opportunity to build lasting relationships with dozens of young people in Peru. The annual Alternative Spring Break trip, now in its eighth year, is sponsored by the Office of Campus Ministry. 4 The first cohort of 12 Haitian nursing faculty participating in the Regis College Haiti Project will graduate this winter, marking the first time in Haiti’s history that nurses will be awarded graduate degrees in science by the University of Haiti, supported by the Haitian Ministry of Health. 5 Regis welcomed Fulbright scholar Yves Vilton of Haiti to the Master of Science program in Regulatory and Clinical Research Management this fall. The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government; it’s designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the U.S. and other countries. Grants are awarded for master’s and doctoral programs in a variety of fields of study.

“ We covered a lot of material and a lot of miles, but the common thread was about the compassion gene and how we evolve to a deeper understanding of our connectedness.”

“We were stunned. This was a new way of connecting young people with faith traditions,” said Professor Ernest Collamati, chair of the Philosophy and Religious Studies Department. “Beyond the generous donation—an unbelievable gift—was Kathryn, a remarkable benefactor who breaks stereotypes by her simple way of life. She has a renaissance quality of knowledge and speaks well of science, religious traditions, Catholic theology, politics, and economics. In this specialized age of 2013, it is hard to find someone like her.” Like the scientist she is, Erat was meticulous when mapping out the curriculum and the trips with professors. Sister Elizabeth Conway ’80, CSJ, director of spiritual life, attended the 2013 trip to France, Switzerland, and Italy. She marvels at how Erat takes pieces of each trip and thoughtfully, purposefully weaves them together. Under Erat’s direction, the 2013 Regis group moved from a kitchen in France to Geneva and the United Nations Human Rights Council’s famous circular table. They made a contemplative visit to Assisi, Italy, birthplace of St. Francis, and later joined a Vatican audience of 70,000 with his namesake, Pope Francis, in Rome. “We covered a lot of material and a lot of miles, but the common thread was about the compassion gene and how we evolve to a deeper understanding of our connectedness,” said Sister Betsy.

This tone of outreach and unity struck a chord with Parrish, who was initially unsure about the diverse Regis group, which blended students from an array of programs. Any concerns disappeared as the students and faculty became a tight-knit community, sharing simple meals of rice and collard greens while bonding over their love of the resilient, joyful villagers, children, and elders infected or affected by HIV/AIDS. “It’s a bit of a leap of faith to travel so far with 10 college kids,” said Nancy Bittner, who participated in the Kenya trip as a member of the Regis nursing faculty. “But Kathryn believed in us and we followed her lead.” Students on the trip were able to participate in activities relating to their majors and their interests. For instance, nursing students weighed and measured orphans as part of the USAID program in nutrition. Erat also factored in fun by surprising students with breakfast at a hippo pool and an African safari. Joseph Draper, an assistant professor of religious studies who taught the 2011 class on China and accompanied students on the trip, was taken with Erat’s professional connections when it came to visiting lecturers. Erat even arranged for China experts like Henrietta Harrison, a professor of history at Harvard University, to speak with students at Regis. Erat is “a self-made woman, a formidable scholar with a huge

to her involvement with Regis, is also on the board of SomervilleCambridge Elder Services and an active member of Saint Paul Church in Harvard Square. For Erat, a dedicated Catholic who was educated at the College of New Rochelle—the first women’s Catholic college in New York— and went on to break barriers for women in information technology, knowledge is practical as well as theoretical. The Erat Scholars Program thus includes both. The seminar/trip weaves spirituality with academics, humanitarian outreach, and global exploration, and—Erat emphasized—“forms a community among the students and professors.” It was a program whose time had come—the result of faith and serendipity. Erat had met former Regis President Mary Jane England ’59 in 2002 and participated in the Regis College Dialogues on Women, Church, and Society. “This is the place where it can happen,” Erat remembers thinking. Jackie Salas ’14 said her experience has been transformative— shaping the way she views herself and changing the plans she once had for the future. Simply put: “It was beyond amazing,” Salas said of her 14-day trip to France, Switzerland, and Italy. “We lived what we learned in the classroom. “Kathryn is passionate about sharing her knowledge—not just about church doctrine but life lessons as well. She wants us to better our lives and better the future and doesn’t ask for anything in return.” And it’s not just the students who are awestruck by the Erat Scholars Program. Professors, too, are excited by the opportunity to couple classroom study with exploration, and to do it alongside a donor who funds the entire cost of each trip, and who is participating 100 percent.

“ Kathryn is passionate about sharing her knowledge—not just about church doctrine but life lessons as well. She wants us to better our lives and better the future and doesn’t ask for anything in return.”


heart,” Draper said, describing the many times Erat called upon her personal experiences, wisdom, and savvy to help students deal with issues abroad. After Regis students experienced a bicycle theft while in China, Erat negotiated with the bike rental company on reimbursement, talking the vendor down from $1,000 to just $80. These are the kinds of things you don’t learn in a classroom. As are the intricacies of how faith plays out in the daily lives of people in other parts of the world. Salas said she felt chills as she stood in a kitchen in Le Puy, France, where the Sisters of Saint Joseph founded their order nearly 300 years ago. Parrish was awestruck by the orphans of Nyumbani, children who had very little materially but overflowed with happiness and a zest for learning. And there are stories from many other students on the way the trip changed their worldview, including the student who was baptized in the Jordan River during the trip to Jerusalem. “If students come back and say, ‘Gee, people actually died for this’ or ‘People in other countries share this religion,’ then the program was a success,” said Erat. “It’s like coming home from a trip and realizing your living room is very small. It does hit you.”

Making Connect io ns Regis College is taking a significant step in advancing its international agenda with the recent launch of a Center for Global Connections. The Center will be a hub for overseas academic and service learning initiatives for students; for bringing foreign students and faculty to campus; for supporting faculty development in international research and conferences; and for driving lifelong learning programming for alumni. David Crisci was appointed Center director in October. Previously, he was associate director of international affairs at Marywood University in Pennsylvania., from which he holds BA and MS degrees. A $100,000 grant from the Massachusetts-based Cummings Foundation helped establish the Center. “We are thrilled and grateful that the Cummings Foundation has acknowledged the mission and potential of our Center for Global Connections with this substantial grant,” said President Antoinette M. Hays, PhD, RN. “Regis is already expanding its global footprint, with a growing number of international students, increased study abroad opportunities, community service in Peru, our International Nurse Faculty Partnership Initiative in Haiti, and other forms of outreach that express our educational commitment to the social justice side of globalization. This grant moves our efforts to the next level. I especially thank Regis alumna Carol Donovan ’59 for helping to call attention to our work.”

ROLL OF HONOR 2012–2013


Dear Alumni and Friends, We surpassed our Regis Fund goal again! Thank you, thank you, thank you for playing such an important role in our fundraising efforts at Regis College. Year after year, I am humbled by the generosity and dedication of our alumni and friends. Alumni, friends, students, faculty, staff, parents: we are all Building Regis Together. Regis is breaking records. Earlier this fall, we welcomed 963 new and returning undergraduates to campus—the largest enrollment in Regis’s history. Not only that, more students are living on campus than ever before and the residence halls are full. As Regis grows, so does the overall vibrancy of the campus. It was wonderful to see so many new faces on the first day of classes, their iPads in tow as they jet from College Hall to the cafeteria, from Angela and Domitilla to the spectacular Regis is expanding at the graduate level as well, with a 16 percent increase in enrollment over last year. Because we are consistently adding innovative programs in both schools,


we are attracting students from a broad range of backgrounds for a variety of programs. This past summer, Regis launched its second doctoral program—a Doctor of Education in higher education leadership. Regis is thriving and people are noticing! The Boston Business Journal featured an article about Regis’s fiscal health, citing a strong improvement in strength and stability over the last few years. Together, anything is possible. I am pleased to present to you the 2012–2013 Annual Report and Roll of Honor. Each one of you has helped the College reach its potential and achieve its mission. As always, alumni and friend participation is so important to keep Regis moving forward, so thank you for helping us do just that. I hope to see you at a Regis event this year. In the meantime, if you have any questions or ideas, I would love to hear from you: 781-768-7222 or

On joining the

1927 Society Eileen Sullivan ’85 Regis has other gift clubs, but this one high“ lights the College's longstanding history, going back to 1927. It represents the history and the longevity of Regis. For that reason, I increased my donations to achieve this level of giving.”


Shortly after graduating, I made whatever donation I could, regardless of its size. My belief was that a collection of smaller donations from a number of people adds up. Why wait until I was in position to make larger donations? Regis played a major role in who I am today; how could I not support such a place? Fortunately, Regis has the option of giving throughout the year, whether you want to contribute monthly, which is what I chose to do, or in other increments. Think of it as not buying lunch out once or twice a month and instead taking those funds and contributing to Regis. There is always someone who needs to be helped, and it's a matter of finding out what little part you can do that will make a big difference for other people. That’s what the Sisters of Saint Joseph taught me. To read more of the Q&A with Eileen, go to

Buckley Boulevard celebrates alumna’s love of education As students returned to campus this fall, they undoubtedly noticed the addition of a new street sign: Buckley Boulevard, named for Jane Buckley Firla ’63 (See photo of Jane, page 55). As they traverse the campus now and in the years to come, it is likely that many will wonder about the sign’s namesake. Jane’s story is characterized by giving—to her family, friends, and alma mater—her husband of 41 years emphasizes. “She was a devoted wife and mother, she cherished family and friends,” said Bill Firla, adding, “She was a true friend.” After her children had grown, Jane also worked in administrative positions at Babson College and the Dexter School in Brookline. The couple lived in Needham for many years before moving to Norwell in 2001. Jane passed away in 2004 after a battle with colon cancer. Gregarious but modest, “Jane was a


low-key, behind the scenes kind of person,” her husband said. “Longterm friendships were very important to her, and she maintained lots of friends from Regis. Any time there was a Regis event, I think she attended.” In May, Bill and his daughter, Gail, attended the Class of 1963’s 50th Reunion, which included a memorial Mass. It was a meaningful experience. “A number of classmates stopped to say a few kind words, and I, of course, was happy to hear that. I was also happy to have my daughter hear that Jane was still dear to so many

hearts,” he recalled. It was after the event that Bill decided, “to do something significant because the College did mean so much to her. I just thought it might be nice to do something visible to remember her, to remember her time there, and all that it meant to her.” To celebrate a generous gift from Bill to Regis, Buckley Boulevard was

dedicated by President Hays at a ceremony for family members in August. The roadway extends from the Cardinal Spellman Stamp Museum all the way to Morrison House and the Tower Garden. There is no question where Jane's legacy lies, Bill reflected. “She would be so proud of her daughters, and of her grand-

children, who are strong, solid citizens, all going to good colleges and performing well. It’s really Jane’s model of instilling such solid values, of educating them about what’s good and what’s bad. I think that’s her legacy: a wonderful family, wonderful nieces and nephews, wonderful children, and wonderful grandchildren.”—by Lea Plante

✒Annette P. Pendergast, 101


Reunion dates for the alumni weekend were May 17–19. Doris Lynch and myself attended the Golden Tower Luncheon that was held in the Lower Dining Room of the Student Union Building. If possible it would be great if others of our class could make it in the future.¶ I have completed 6 years being a member of the Regis Fund Executive Committee and have enjoyed very much working with other members and the staff on the fundraising appeals and solicitation calls. This past year we not only met our goal of $1,102,500 million but surpassed it. Many thanks to you for your contributions.¶ On Reunion Weekend, May 18 to be exact, at an evening buffet, outdoors, under a tent there were 4 awards given to 4 alums and I received the 2013 Alumni Loyalty Award. What a great surprise and joy it was! Also I had 3 of my nieces present as guests. All told it was a tremendous evening celebration.¶ Seeing that I am at Yarmouth Port on the Cape all summer I always try to attend the Cape Cod Luncheon for Regis alums and friends. This year it was at the Wianno Club in Osterville. There were 165 alums present both men and women and it was most enjoyable.¶ It is with sadness that we were informed of the recent death of our classmate Barbara Kerigan McCarthy on Jan. 11. Barbara will be remembered at the Annual Memorial Liurgy at the Regis Chapel in Nov. ¶ I visit Betty McNally Finigan at the Charlwell House in Norwood about every 10 days and attended her birthday celebration at a wonderful festive party at her daughter’s home in Westwood. It was great to meet her children and grandchildren. Best wishes Betty on this special occasion. ¶ I want to let the whole class know that I just received the latest 2013 Regis College Alumni Directory. It is the size of an average book and has a beautiful picture done in lovely color of the stone tower on the cover. It has a class year biographical section, a geographical section, and a complete alphabetical index. This updated directory will prove to be extremely valuable to me. ¶ If you can, please forward any information or news of any kind to me by telephone or mail. Stay well, healthy and happy.

each other recently over the phone. After a short stay in the hospital for pneumonia, Preb is rehabbing at the Heritage Health Therapy and Senior Center, 1225 Woodland Drive, Mt. Zion, IL 62549. She misses everyone and would greatly appreciate hearing from her Regis classmates. So please, drop Preb a note! ¶ Gertrude Breen Alfredson has a great adventure planned for the fall…she’ll be touring America, taking in as many national parks as she can during the 18-day journey. Gert also had a chance to attend this summer’s annual Regis luncheon at the Wianno Club on Cape Cod, always a well-attended event. ¶ We also hear that Jean Curran has moved to the Cape and that Jean Olivo Glynn is making her home on Cape Cod along with other long-time Cape residents Louise McInerney, Dorothy Mahoney McKenna and Peg Donovan. During my annual Cape Cod August vacation, I had a chance to get together with Dot McKenna several times. Dot remains on-the-go taking part in all sorts of learning and cultural events with her Kings Way community and has enjoyed non-stop summer fun while her kids and grandkids are on Cape. Peg Donovan dropped by for a cuppa coffee, bringing along her famous brownies (a favorite of my husband Al!). Peg is active as ever—volunteering with her parish community and welcoming cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends to her home on Cape. ¶ Eleanor Consentino Feuer is living in Atkinson, NH and Dorothy Gibbons Sullivan continues to enjoy the joys of Florida living. ¶ Sister Dorothy McKenzie is overjoyed with the growing clan: 3 more baptisms of great-grandnephews, including twins! ¶ The fearsome foursome of Gert, Alice Dunbar O’Halloran, Jeanne McDonough Cronin, and Phyllis Gallinelli Cambell get together each week at Regis for the Lunch, Listen & Learn program. What a great way to keep current and practice life-long learning! Soon, Regis will be announcing the Sister Thérèse Higgins Sisters of Saint Joseph Scholarship. Please consider supporting this scholarship when making your annual contribution to Regis.

Ln., Fairfield, CT 06824, 203-259-7361, ¶ We

tried to have a reunion and sort out a changing of the guards. Unfortunately there was a mix up as to time of the special luncheon. So several of the class came on Friday: Nancie Turner Donelan, Clare Hailer Dennis, Alice Ryan Gallaher, Marie McSweeney Fitzgerald, Marie Fisher Lee, Jeanne Blackwell Morgan and a dozen more on Saturday: Sister Regina Harrington, Jane McGrath, Ann O’Hare Smith, Louise Corcoran Sullivan, Mary McGoldrick Malloy, Joan Doherty Mahoney, Mary Jane Crowley Murray, Marion Blue Brennan, Marie Kane Vachon, Mary Geary Mullen, Frannie Madigan, and Barbara Sullivan. We held a class meeting after the luncheon and had new class officers voted in. Our beloved president Sister Regina was retiring and we decided to have two officers to do her job: Jane McGrath and Ann Smith. Everyone was so grateful to Sister Regina, we needed a drum roll! We also had to replace Mary Lou Cooney Manning, our fabulous class reporter; and lucky for you it is me! No one else volunteered so this is it. Everyone likes to receive news but it needs just one to put it together. Also, thankfully, Sister Regina said she would stay on the board as class fund agent. ¶ Ann read a lovely letter from Mary Lou; this was the weekend her family has had a reunion at Kill Devil’s Hill in the outer banks of North Carolina since 1983. She wrote that her husband John has been a partial invalid for about a year now and a few more babies have been added. How lucky they were to be together. ¶ Jean McDonald Snyder had her granddaughter’s graduation from Fordham. And she is still working in real estate! ¶ Barbara Earley Mason had her grandson’s graduation at Notre Dame. ¶ Mary Jane Murray’s daughter, Ann Murray Paige, was presented a writing award by Mass. General Hospital’s 100year club. Ann started out with breast cancer and thought she was doing well but it has come back with a vengeance. She is fighting it continually and has formed a group called Project Pink.

She also made a video called “The Breast Cancer Diaries.” Her writing is called “Pink Tips” and if you work on a computer all of this information can be found online. ¶ We would love to include your news. Please call me at anytime to update.

having heard from you, I don’t have much news to report. Unfortunately what I have learned is sad. And so I report on the passing of two of our classmates. ¶ Lois Vachon Ward of Weston died Aug. 2. She was the mother of 6 daughters and the grandmother of 6. Lois received a master’s degree in Social Work from BC and was a longtime director of social services at the former Sancta Maria Hospital in Cambridge. She was a faithful alumna, returning to class gatherings until her illness prevented that. ¶ Ann Sullivan Lonergan of Reading died Sept. 2. Ann was the widow of George, the mother of 6 and the grandmother of 9.

We extend our sympathy to the families and friends of our classmates who have passed away: Anne-Marie Cahill Casey on July 14 and Ruth Durnan Johnson on July 29. ¶ Classmates met in June for $9.95 lobster rolls in Gloucester: Barbara Palmer Schlichte, Florence Kelly McKenna, Pat Chisholm,

Janice McBride Power and Anne Downey Tierney. Getting to be an annual affair:

join us next year. ¶ Janice Power spent a week in Martha’s Vineyard with most of her family in July. Some of Janice’s summer days are spent assisting with costumes for the three Regale Musical Theatre shows. Sister Dorothy Welch was Janice’s guest at The Fiddler On the Roof. Sister loved it. ¶ During Aug., Ann Comerford Kelly took part in a family reunion arranged by her daughter, Ann-Marie, and her husband, Dick. This was a joint reunion of 2 families. Ann-Marie is one of 7 children and Dick is 1 of 11. It was held on a beach on the California coast. There were 65 participants. WOW! Ann has 15 grandchildren and 1 great-grand. ¶ California was also the destination for Barbara Schlichte last Feb. and March. Barbara’s daughter, Joan, lives there. They did a bit of traveling out West. Elder Hostel is now known as Roads Scholar trips. They went on some Aging Heart Trips. One to listen to the romantic songs of the ’30s, one to San Francisco, and one to study The History of Southern California. The Schlichte family has been really busy. Daughter Marianne is the VP of the Cape Ann Savings Bank. Daughter Trisha’s husband owns a restaurant in Gloucester—Johnstone Pub. ¶ Marie Barbano Tassinari is leaving in Oct. for a trip to Munich; she will enjoy Octoberfest (Why didn’t I pay attention in Fraulein Palais class). Marie then plans to go to Italy and return in early Nov. ¶ Great white shark Mary Lee enjoyed summer in waters off Cape Cod. Rumor has it she’s back to Florida for the winter.

children’s book, “And the Mockingbird Sang.” Alice has enjoyed a career in two related professions: theater and education. She appeared as leading lady in 46 weekly productions with the equitybased Boston Stock Company. She then became leading lady at the famous Coconut Grove Playhouse in Miami, FL. In the education field, she taught English and drama at the Eaglebrook School and the Park School, both in Massachusetts. Alice became the first woman play director at BC while serving as an adjunct professor in the communication and theater department there. When her son was about 6, he started identifying birds and his avid interest was contagious. Alice enjoys residing in a bird sanctuary in Sarasota, FL. ¶ Some of us gathered for lunch again in August at Mary Breslin’s lovely summer home in Hull, co-hosted by Pat Foley Granahan. Our numbers have diminished, but not our spirit—pacemakers keeping some of us going and hearing aids helping others keep up with the conversation. Mary entertained us (as well as fed us) with tales told her by her father, Dr. John Breslin, of the great molasses flood of 1919 when he ministered to many of the victims. Barbara Snyder Kelley, Marie Monafo Forcucci, and Pat Cauley Ross had some stories of their days at Girls Latin School and recalled how a dozen or more of their classmates there came to Regis with them. Barbara was her usual hilarious self. It was especially nice to have Midge O’Hare McCarthy join us after her long ordeal of her husband’s illness and recent death. Ed passed away in June and Jean Ryan Connors and I attended his funeral. Shortly after our Hull gathering, Marie Forcucci’s husband Gus passed away suddenly. We extend our deepest sympathy to Midge and Marie and their families and will keep them in our thoughts and prayers. ¶ I’m also sorry to report that Patsy Tiernen Kelley passed away in June, having been predeceased by her husband Lawrence. She leaves 2 sons and a daughter with whom she lived in recent years, as well as her sister Ann Lyons Burke ’43. We offer sincere condolences to Patsy’s family. ¶ In honor of her 85th birthday

in April, Marion Comerford Cowie’s 5 daughters hosted a Sunday luncheon at the Falmouth Yacht Club. Over 50 relatives and friends, including Cay Foley Hines and Barbara Kelley, gathered to celebrate with Marion. ¶ Eileen Dewire Locke drove down to Long Island, NY, in her new Buick to visit her longtime Cambridge Latin School friend in Aug. She still chairs an annual reunion for her high school classmates. Eileen called Elizabeth Stone Ross to find that Elizabeth is not getting around much. However, she still enjoys her comfortable home that she had built after retiring to her hometown of Hanover, having spent most of her married life in New Jersey. Elizabeth has a daughter who is a physician on the staff of the Lahey Clinic to oversee her health issues. ¶ When I last talked with Claire Eremian Scully during the summer she was preparing a picnic lunch to share with Lou Moll Dallas. They certainly have been good friends for many years. ¶ Nancy Natoli Fay had a great trip to England and Italy in Oct. with her daughter Suzanne, who was invited to a wedding outside London. Nancy had just recently renewed her passport so she was all set to go when Suzanne’s husband couldn’t make it. They flew from London to Milan, rented a car and drove up to the Lake Como region. Nancy was thrilled, needless to say. ¶ Cay Hines and I attended the Reunion Planning Extravaganza in Sept. where we were made aware of all sorts of ideas for our upcoming 65th Reunion next May. We hope you’re planning to join us then. We’ve had so many wonderful Reunions we look forward to a repeat!

wake for S. Jeanne d’Arc at Bethany in Framingham. ¶ Sally and Marie Rizzo attended the inauguration of our new President, Dr. Antoinette Hays, PhD, RN. They were impressed with the ceremony and said it made them even more proud of Regis. ¶ Marie is still active in fighting for the return of high standards in the media, being an active and enthusiastic officer in the Morality in Media of MA. She is often seen at the State House for hearings on laws that are contrary to our Judeo-Christian principles. Good for you, Marie! She also has gone to the State House to protest a bill that would mandate schools to teach sexuality in grades K-5. The organization supports the rights of parents not only to be notified and informed about the contents of the curriculum, but to give the parents the right to opt in or out for their children. ¶ Congratulations to Pat Petrilli’s daughter, M. Regina Cran, who published her first book, Everyday Holiness. ¶ Marie Fleming Sisk has a granddaughter attending St. Anselm College and another at Hanover High. ¶ Loyola Doherty Sylvan spent an enjoyable month in Italy visiting her son, who is stationed with the Navy. ¶ Nancy Quinn O’Keefe was pleased to see everyone again after attending our 2012 Reunion. ¶ Jill McKearin Paredes keeps busy attending courses at the UMass OLLI and a lecture series, “Listening to Other Voices,” at the Glastonbury Abbey in Hingham. ¶ Ann Purcell MacDonald was doing much better after her fall last autumn and enjoyed gathering again with old friends. ¶ Proud grandmother Kate Molly Rowe has 3 grandsons who graduated from college, one from law school, and one doing research in Lyme Disease. ¶ Helen Cruchley Jones was cruising around the world with her sister Sheila ’57. She planned to move to North Carolina near family. ¶ Sally Tully moved to upstate NY into a condo near daughter Beth. ¶ Those attending the Tower luncheon on May 17 were Marie Rizzo, Nancy Quinn O’Keefe, Jill Paredes, Carlotta Krauth O’Brien, Lois Brigham Saltalamacchia and Pat Hogan. They appreciated viewing the beautiful Memorial book portraying the life of our dear deceased classmate, Joanne Hynes Ellis, thoughtfully brought by her sister, Betty Ann ’49. Nancy O’Keefe won the second prize, a Photographic Book on Boston. Lois Saltalamacchia now lives in Newbury and has 15 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. Carlotta O’Brien has moved to Winchester close to two daughters. She talks with Nancy Johnson Boland and Lois Saltalamacchia often. ¶ Mary Finn Smith called me when she read in the spring issue of Regis Today that Peg O’Donohue is a lay Dominican. Mary also is in the same organization in

Illinois, where she lives. She asked for Peg’s phone number and planned to get in touch with her. She wanted to know all about the Reunion and what was new at Regis. It has been many years since she had visited but hoped to get back sometime soon. ¶ Marie Brophy Allard keeps in touch with Marilyn Burke O’Rourke, Sally O’Donnell Schoen and Joan Barrett Van Tassel. She proudly boasts of 2 great-grandchildren. ¶ We do have sad news. Dorothy Holly Connors lost her daughter Kathleen on Holy Thursday after a long fight with cancer. Condolences to you and your family, Dotty. We also lost 2 of our classmates: Antoinette Navarro Campbell passed away on May 4, and Patricia Donovan Bondelevitch in July. Our deepest sympathy to their friends and families. Both were active at Regis, as undergrads and as alumnae. They will be greatly missed.

Brook Rd., Milton, MA 02186, 617-6985626, ¶ We are

saddened to hear of the passing of two of our classmates who had not missed a get together since the day we left the campus: Helen Valle Binell and Mary Herman Driscoll. Helen kept us together for years by her connecting and planning. Mary was chauffeured by her loving husband to our luncheons as she entertained us with her stories and he waited patiently outside. ¶ Audrey Kendrick Richard is into Facebook with her 19 grandkids. She has taken up a new sport. She is the croquet champion in Sandwich and Falmouth. ¶ Mary Norton is enjoying Fuller House in Milton, but heading to Fort Myers right after Christmas. ¶ Kay Powers Leddy has the best pool in Falmouth according to her grandchildren. She’s proud to say she has not missed a Reunion. ¶ Sheila Post Dickson has left Cotuit and moved to North Hill. She comes to Marco Island for a winter visit. ¶ Claire Russell Megan spent time in Saratoga losing money at the racetrack. Her grandson had an internship at the White House this summer. ¶ Joan Clark Christie was the mother of the groom at her son’s wedding in Exeter, NH. Nancy Campbell Rouleau had a great Nantucket vacation with planning help by her son-in-law who is in business at the Island and has contacts everywhere. ¶ Connie Torrisi Miragliotta and Corrine Molloms Laroche took themselves to Williamstown to preview the new musical, “The Bridges of Madison County,” which is going to be in NY in January. ¶ Claire O’Connell McAuliffe, Claire Megan and myself are still kicking it up! Claire keeps saying we are back to square one and aren’t we lucky! ¶ Peggy Donnelly says, “I can’t believe

I’m 82 with many more blessings in view!” ¶ Mary Jane Lee O’Connor is in Michigan all these years and enjoys line dancing and the quickstep. She has to be in good shape! Here’s to the rest of us who have our own hips and knees- carry on. Life is good!


60th Reunion ✒Maureen Sullivan Carey, 1202

Greendale Ave., Needham, MA 02492., 781-449-2247 ✒Patricia Cronin Huie, PO Box 375, Humarock, MA 02047, pchuie@comcast. net, 781-834-7134 ¶ Would you believe

that we are about to celebrate our 60th Reunion from Regis? We hope that you will be able to attend the festivities in May 2014. Watch the mail for the latest information regarding the Reunion. ¶ Attending the Tower Luncheon in May were a few of our classmates: Mary Alvord Biette, Regina Mitchell Cantella, Cornelia Murphy Davidson, Joanne Hickey Johnson, Marianne Sanderson Shay, Catherine Tobin. ¶ Our Class President, Mary Roche Sullivan, had severe damage done to her vacation home in Scituate, which had been badly battered during the February blizzard. Fortunately, repairs were completed so that they were able to enjoy the ocean breezes during our very hot summer of 2013. ¶ Margaret Rogers Savage had the pleasure of her son Tim and his family back in the country as he was attending a course in D.C. at the State Department Language School to learn Mandarin for his next assignment in China. Two more sons, Kevin and Brian from California, joined them at Peg’s to celebrate the Fourth of July. Tim expects to be heading to China by Nov. Peg and Neil are off to Ireland shortly to attend a Genealogy workshop in Dublin and do some sightseeing in and around Dublin. ¶ Christina Duggan and Tara Brady from the Office of Institutional Advancement and Alumni Relations joined Joanne Hickey Johnson, Norma McNamara Quinn and Pat Cronin Huie

for lunch at Tabu on Worth Avenue, Naples, FL bringing the latest news from Regis. Other Florida news: Bettye Morrissey Neal celebrated her 81st birthday party with all of her family and friends. Best wishes and good health, Bettye! ¶ Travel Notes: Norma McNamara Quinn and her husband, Frank, took advantage of the summer to travel from their home in Saratoga Springs, NY to Cape Cod and the Equinox Hotel in Manchester, VT. Pat Huie had a great trip with her daughters and families to Salt Lake City, UT and Jackson Hole, WY. She says that this was another item checked off “her bucket list.” ¶ We had a great visit with our California family. Son Tim, his wife Tina, and Ryan, 15, and Megan, 12,

class spent the last 2 weeks of July with us. Joining us for their 1st week was our granddaughter, Milan, from Georgia. It was a lot of fun, but we notice that our “get-up-and-go” isn’t as peppy as before. ¶ Our prayers are extended to the families of Charlene Ryan Fitzgerald and Victor Pesek, husband of Dorothy Fraser Pesek who died recently. ¶ Don’t forget to send along your news to share with your classmates. ¶ Corrections to class of 1954 notes from Spring 2013: Rosemary Murphy Denmark had a bad fall recently, suffering a broken pelvis. After a period of rehabilitation, she is finally recuperating at home. She really would love to receive prayers, cards and notes from her classmates. Her address: 170 Celestial Way, 4–6, Juno Beach, FL 33408. She is looking forward to our Reunion in May. It seems that that the “elves” were snooping in the cyber-sphere between Needham and Weston while our spring notes were traveling to the Alumni office. They replaced Rosemary’s name with that of a Class of ’55 alum with a similar name. Apologies to all!


✒Peg Vincent Kelley, PO Box 1346,

Edgartown, MA 02539, 508-627-8596, ¶ I asked those of

you whom I know how to contact if they had a bucket list—an unfulfilled wish. I want to go to Maui, because of a museum there that used to be a jail and that has local (Nantucket, New Bedford) graffiti on the walls, Jacqueline McLaughlin Gouse says. “You reached me on a happy day. We are getting ready to go to Virginia Beach for our 58th wedding anniversary. I am not quite ready to celebrate the big 80 since 8 is still the second number in my chronological age.” ¶ I have no bucket list. We have been fortunate to travel most of the world in better times, though Egypt, Turkey, Greece, and Israel were not part of our itinerary. Sadly missed. Living in a rural setting has been a delight, interesting, always changing with the seasons. For many years I have been dealing with glaucoma, but again feel fortunate to be able to have exceptional treatment and am doing well. I try to keep my mind working with the most difficult sudokus and enjoy the murder and mayhem (without gore) type of mysteries, via books, audio recordings, or dvds. I also try to hold on to good memories and look forward to making more, God willing. ¶ From Rosalie L’Ecuyer: Can’t think of a subject right now. My personal focus is on getting a new left knee on September 12. My old left knee, which is almost 80, has given out. The right knee, just the same age, seems to be doing OK. “Dem” bones of mine are creakin’. While I have never

been married and so have no children, I am always happy to hear about others’ children through your column. By now, our class probably has quite a crop of grand- and possibly greatgrandchildren. ¶ Our 60th anniversary is in 2015. Could we put one bucket wish into fruition for the Reunion? Would it be a way-out idea to have our Reunion away from Regis, say in Maui? ¶ One good idea might be to give more time to talk with one another, Friday evening to Sunday morning is such a limited time frame, especially since locals often only come to one event. A week with all attendees together would guarantee a lot of mixing, remembering, and catching up. We can’t escape the fact of our aging and inevitable gradual frailty and disappearance from the earthly scene. I can’t conceive of attending a 65th in 2020. ¶ How about an e-mail discussion group yearlong, class news online as the news happens? Even a discussion of doing something different for Reunion 2015 might be a topic. Sixty years survival, thanks be to God, is something to celebrate. Those who don’t have the physical strength to travel can participate in online chatter. What are your ideas about our next Reunion? What would you think about creating our own website, so that we could get together “online” all year long? Jacqui Cyr Lewis likes this idea; so does Anne Gallagher Deignan. ¶ As always, I close by asking you to remember all our classmates in your prayers, particularly Ellie O’Neil.

Nineteen members from our class attended the Golden Tower Luncheon on Friday, May 17 on the Regis campus: Carol Bonner Connell, Candy Dillon Mattaliano, Marie Vasaturo White, Mary Anne Kent, Mary Lou Rawson, Mary Queeney Shinney, Mary Neilan Regan, Grace Foley La Due, Jane Nyhan Kelly, Bea Pattavina Sloan, Ann Flaherty Walsh, Mary Jo Coughlin O’Connor, Mary Rose Campbell, Mary Keenan, Marie Healy, Ginny Clark Kristo, Ann Marie Healy Sawyer, Margie Casey Mulcahy, and your reporter. It was great to see so many, especially Marie White, who was visiting from New Mexico. ¶ In her remarks at the Tower Luncheon, College President Antoinette M. Hays, PhD, RN spoke about renovations to the college library, bringing it more in line with the current thinking of libraries as places for collaboration and making accommodations for the advances in online research. We also heard about the new green space/quad planned for the upper campus. ¶ After the luncheon, Mary Lou Rawson conducted

a brief class meeting. She noted that some of our classmates are unable to come to meetings because of illness and asked that they be remembered in our prayers. In particular she mentioned Sue Barker Oldmixon and Lorraine Talamona Celi. Mary Lou recommended Sunshine Fund donations be sent to Pat Turner Kelley, who does a wonderful job of sending remembrances to classmates who are ill and memorial donations to Regis in memory of deceased classmates. ¶ Margie Mulcahy shared the latest news about her grandson, Evan Thomas O’Shea, who joined his sister Leah a year ago. Grandmother-hood obviously agrees with her. Margie had the sad experience of traveling to Cockeysville, MD in March for the funeral of her good friend, our dear classmate Mary Alice Powers Garmer. ¶ Locally some of us attended the funerals of Joyce Dunn Higgins and Joyce Haggerty, both of whom died in April. In August, we lost another dear classmate Carol Ambrose HayesDonovan. Please remember our beloved classmates and their families in your prayers. ¶ Mary Keenan reported that Ann Henry Thompson and her husband have moved to New Hampshire to live with one of their children. ¶ Mary Keenan, Mary Lou Rawson, and Mary Rose Campbell attended an event at Regis honoring scholarship recipients where they had a chance to meet Tamara, this year’s recipient of the Sister John Scholarship. We had hoped to see Tamara at the Tower Luncheon but she had already committed to her


new job in Social Services. ¶ A few of us met at the Regis Cape Cod Luncheon in August at the Wianno Club: Pat Kelley, Carol Scollins, Candy Mattaliano, Mary Regan, Mary Keenan, and me. Carol Bonner Connell had planned to join us for the luncheon, but she had a nasty fall the week before, ending up with multiple bumps and bruises as well as a painful fractured humerus. While she had to miss our luncheon, Carol reported that she hosted a long-planned family reunion of 53 family members a few days later. This reunion was also a farewell party for her son, David, who was heading to his diplomatic assignment in Istanbul in late August. Carol Scollins brought our best wishes to Carol as she delivered the centerpiece from the luncheon as well as a lovely silk flower arrangement, which Pat Kelley had sent on our behalf. Carol says “thank you” to all! ¶ Carol Connell’s mishap did not prevent her from sending along results of the Regis Fund 2012/2013. There were 18 donors to the Sister John Scholarship for a total of $4,408.89. There were 36 donors to The Regis Fund, $18,467.00. So the grand total for Regis ’56 was $22,875.89, with a participation rate of 57.32%. Congratulations to Carol for her work as Class Fund Agent and our thanks to all our donors. ¶ Dorothy Harrington Winrow made a Cape visit in August. She was sorry she could not join us but said she had a wonderful week with her family members, ages 2-81 years old. The children and grandchildren filled FIVE cottages for the family reunion. I see Dottie’s posts on Facebook and recently saw a lovely picture of Mary Daly Curtin posted. Betty Furze Trask is also a regular on Facebook, as is Marie White. It’s fun to see pictures of children and grandchildren. If you are on Facebook, please “friend” me. It’s a great way to keep in touch. ¶ Bea Pattavina Sloan spent the summer recuperating from heart surgery. She is doing very well and is grateful for all the visits, cards, prayers, and kind thoughts of our classmates. ¶ Pat Kelley enjoyed a 2-week late summer Baltic cruise with her niece, Natalie. ¶ Mary Jeanne Getzfread Sullivan is justifiably proud of her granddaughters. Colleen returned from Ecuador where she volunteered at Rostro de Cristo Mission this past year. Lauren, a recent Stonehill graduate, has gone to Costa Rica to serve at a Franciscan Mission for a year. A 3rd granddaughter, Caitlin, started at Stonehill this Sept. Must be in the genes, Mary Jeanne. ¶ In response to my request for “good reads” Mary Lou Rawson recommends some “light mysteries” by Diane Mott Davidson featuring a female caterer detective with recipes included. Carol Scollins enjoyed “Eminence”

by Morris West. (Remember him?) Our Winchester Reads Committee chose “The Sandcastle Girls” by Chris Bohjalian for the town-wide read, a gripping historical novel about the Armenian genocide of 1915. Shocking but excellent! ¶ Please keep in touch. I am always happy to pass on your news to those on my email list. Let me know if you would like to add your address. I also accept “snail mail” if you prefer to use the USPS.

Other classmates have moved: Janet Petty has moved from North Carolina to be nearer her brother in Georgia. Mary Lyn Eagan remains in North Carolina but has downsized and is very happy with her new apartment, which is good since she was homebound with shingles. I spent a week in Arizona with Elly Zee Zarotschenzeff Doyle. The Grand Canyon has been on my Bucket list for some time. Sue Butkiewicz Prusaczyk is our outstanding traveler for this issue. She is happy that her daughter has Sue’s love of different cultures.

at the top of this section. She was our 1st intrepid news-gatherer, and we thank her sincerely for her herculean efforts, and for keeping us connected. Even as she stepped down, she sent a few items of news, and even donated her brother, Robert Kirby, to visit with her classmates at the Tower Luncheon since she was unable to attend (she was on her 78th trip to New Orleans in the past 13 years!) ¶ The Tower Luncheon in May was a highpoint of our 55th Reunion.

Lou, Paula and Kay were joined the next day by Peggy Carlan, Claire Sirois Foley, Maura McCarthy Grace and Frankie Boyle Nugent at the All-Alumni Luncheon. A grand time was had by all—thank you, Lou, for all you did to make our 55th Reunion so special. ¶ Following the Tower Luncheon, a class meeting was held in Maria Hall, and officers for the next 5 years were elected: Co-Presidents Lou Williams and Paula Buckley, Treasurer Mary Jo Kilmain, Class Reporters Carol Kenney and Joan Kenney, and Fund Agents Paula Buckley, Elaine Fitzpatrick, and Anne Tobin. It was nice to hear that, again, our class was one of the top contributors to the Regis Fund (formerly the Annual Fund), placing 9th in amount donated and 5th in participation of all Regis classes. Please consider making a gift of any amount to this year’s drive—just $5 will keep our participation figure climbing! ¶ In April, Paula Macione organized a mini-reunion for the hooded carpool plus a few Cape Codders at The Cove in W.

There were 13 of us enjoying the delicious food and lively conversation: Carol Donovan, Janice Canniff Monteith, Bunny Catalucci Hughes, Peg Harney Morrissey, Marie Cronin, Yvette LeBlanc Boyle, Janet Clements Lavey, Mary Ann Kennedy Smith, Liz Russell Bilafer, Barbara O’Neil Natale, Louise Foucher, Margaret O’Connell, and Pat Collins Smith. ¶ Louise Foucher came east for a few weeks to attend several family events, the most exciting of which was her son Matthew receiving a Special Olympic athletic jacket for winning the fast-walk event at a recent Special Olympic challenge on the South Shore. Matthew’s brother had been helping him train at a track in Braintree. Way to go, Matthew! ¶ Liz Bilafer met Kay Philbin Donovan at the Arlington Town Hall 100th Birthday Party in June. Kay has retired from Pope John XXIII High School in Everett, but doesn’t seem to really want to ever totally retire. She is now helping out her grandnephew in starting his new technical wiring company. ¶ Haydee Reichard-Cancio writes from Puerto Rico that she received an Honorary Doctorate in “Honoris Causa” in Humanities and Social Sciences from U of Puerto Rico. She also asks for prayers for a speedy recovery for Lourdes Perez-Pont who is recovering from two surgeries due to a broken elbow and broken hip. ¶ News from the last Soc Group luncheon: Loretta Chabot spent a month in Long Boat Key, FL last winter with friends from Cincinnati. Loretta lived in Cincinnati for many years after graduation. She is also planning a trip to Poland—the land of her grandparents. Fran Dewire Calabro is busy with her 2 granddaughters who live locally and travels frequently with Elderhostel. Pat Smith and husband Jim live 6 months a year in Florida and 6 months in Massachusetts. They have 6 grandchildren, 3 in Texas and 3 in Massachusetts. ¶ Maureen and Liz recommend The Orphan Train: A Novel by Christina Baker Kline. It’s a wonderful read especially if you have read The Chaperone by Laura Moriarty.

passed away recently. They were to have celebrated their 50th anniversary this past Sept. Eileen reports she has begun some new activities to keep busy and her friends have been of great help. She is hoping to make a trip east

in the spring and would like to visit several classmates. ¶ After 24 years as a widow, Irene Demers Lamson married Mr. Chuck Johnson in Northampton, MA, on August 17. Between them they have 10 grandchildren, ages 2–15. Irene managed to find a “job” for each one of them in the wedding—the 2 year old played the tambourine in the recessional! Irene and Chuck enjoy cruising and for a honeymoon trip in Oct., they took the Queen Mary across the Atlantic followed by a week in Tuscany. Congratulations, Irene. ¶ Mary Jane Doherty Curran and husband, Donald, enjoyed a trip to Italy in the fall. Part of the trip included a cooking class as well as an audience with Pope Francis!! Mary Jane’s son, Tom Curran, spent time in Greenland working on the reality show Ice Cold Gold to be viewed on Animal Planet. ¶ In Sept., Mary Jane hosted a small gathering of alums at her Orleans, MA, home. Brenda McCrann, Anna Lamperti, Angela Regis Kravchuk, Laura Allen Rushton, and I enjoyed lunch at the Wequasset and an afternoon viewing old pictures on the Reunion video. ¶ Anna Lamperti reported that she is “not working, but is not retired.” That seems to be a good position for her as she has begun to knit lace and plans to work on banding Monarch butterflies. ¶ Lucy Ricker Sheehan enjoyed a trip to Scottsdale and Sedona, AZ with her daughter-inlaw and children. She spent an entire day at the Heard Museum that features Indian cultures. This brought back memories of her Lay Apostolate year. She highly recommends this museum. ¶ Living in Harwich on the Cape definitely agrees with Mary Grover Rossetti. She and her husband keep busy with gardening and their interest in local conservation issues. Mary still attends monthly Book Club meetings off Cape with Ann Hynes and Kay Brennan Keane. Mary was told about a “surprise” birthday trip to Ireland for the entire family including the 2, 3, 5, and 7-year-old grandkids! ¶ Chris Kennedy McCann, Elaine McNulty Sullivan and Catherine Keane Memory enjoyed joining other alumni at the Regis Tower Luncheon during Reunion Weekend in May. ¶ Regis is well represented in the Town of Mansfield, MA, where Sonia Mejia Walgreen is the President of the Council on Aging Board of Trustees and her husband, John, is a Trustee of the Public Library. ¶ Catherine Memory was recently elected Chairperson of the Mansfield Board of Health. Catherine’s career included 20 years as a school administrator. Currently she has a part-time position as Out of District Liaison for the Pembroke, MA, public schools. As a licensed psychologist, she brings the perspective of mental health as well as overall public health issues to her newly elected position. ¶ Laura

Group got together in Hingham with Tish Albiani Carney, Pat Graham Kelly, Carol Finnell Kenney and Janet Duggan Hall. We missed Ina Catalanotti Roehr, Marilyn Dozois Rohrer and Marianne O’Connor Dwyer, who were unable to attend. Also, Margo Johnson Hughes was visiting in the area. Marilyn has moved from Martha’s Vineyard to Lake Winnipesaukee but meets regularly in the winter in Naples with Carol and Janet. ¶ August brought another gathering of classmates at the Cape Cod Summer Luncheon at the Wianno Club. Two tables were filled to overflowing with Class of ’58 members: Betty Britt, Paula Buckley, Tish Carney, Carole Clark, Carol Costa, Kay Devlin, Dottie Hennessy, Pat Hillmer, Carol Kenney, Joan Kenney, Mary Jo Kilmain, Pat McNulty and Lou Williams were joined by Pat Graham Kelly, Mary Reynolds Kennedy, Ann Maloney Leahy, and Pat Flanagan Neumann. Stories of personal and professional triumphs, grandchildren, health issues, and other strands from the tapestry of our lives were exchanged, and it was exciting to see so many new faces around the table—the tenacious bonds of the Class of 1958 endure. ¶ On a sad note, we mourn the death of our classmate Therese Reilly Simmons. She will be remembered at the annual Memorial Liturgy at Regis on November 17, 2013. ¶ Your new reporting team of Kenney & Kenney will strive to find all the news that we can gather—please drop either one of us a note or an email and let us know what is happening in your life.

✒Kate Martin Hawke, 4 Rockland Rd.,

Marblehead, MA 01945, 781-639-3492, ¶ Let us begin


by remembering four of our dear classmates who died this past spring. Joan Petrell Trulli, Marjorie Donovan Bedard, Margaret Savage Hallissey and Judith Wilson Sullivan. Their bonds with Regis were strong. So many families contact the College to ensure that sad news like this is conveyed to those who remember these women as young, vibrant students. ¶ This June, Frank and I finally took a long anticipated trip to introduce 2 of our children and our 2 oldest grandchildren to their Irish cousins. Three generations of Hawkes spent many happy days with 2 generations of O’Sheas at the family home and in the West of Ireland. We hope the bonds will hold for many more generations. ¶ The Cape Cod luncheon held in August at the Wianno Club was a chance for Carroll Beegan Follas, Diane Doherty Anastasia, Agnes O’Hara Barrett and Anne O’Sullivan Collins to meet and catch up on news of their busy lives. ¶ In Sept., members of the class held a mini reunion in Ogunquit, ME. It is always amazing and gratifying to realize that our friendship is based on 56 years of shared experiences that began at Regis in 1957. After our days of eating, drinking, gabbing, laughing and crying, Judith King Weber and Elizabeth Sodini Turichi headed farther north to visit Kathleen Minihan Nauss at her home. ¶ This is a reminder of the Tower Luncheon at Regis on June 5, 2014. Hope to see some of you there. ¶ From Virginia Cunningham Byrne: She continues to teach acting and vocal communication at Notre Dame Academy in Worcester as well as courses in theater to the WiSE group based at Assumption College. She also directs the theater and heads the Arts Department. Her husband continues to “practice” law and insists he will stay with it until he “gets it down pat.” Three happy children: a teacher, a film producer and a drug counselor; 2 beautiful granddaughters: one an ice hockey goalie, and the other a budding artist.


✒Joanne Fitzgerald McCrea, 386

Essex St. #3, Salem, MA 01970, 978745-8448, ¶ Talked with Maureen Connelly shortly

after the death of Irish poet Seamus Heaney. She met him at the Yeats Summer School in Sligo in ’69. Sister

Thérèse Higgins, CSJ, was also there. Maureen’s friendship with Seamus and his family blossomed when he was at Harvard; he often did readings for Maureen’s classes at both Boston and Bridgewater State Universities and spoke at Irish events she was involved with the Eire Society, Kennedy, and Boston Public Libraries. Several former students contacted Maureen after his sudden death on August 30, and she began planning a celebratory commemoration for his 75th birthday at the Heritage Room at Bridgewater State, where Seamus once read. Maureen presented her Heaney and other collections to Bridgewater library last year. The Boston Globe’s Kevin Cullen, UMass Boston Professor Shaun O’Connell and other friends, colleagues and former students will share their remembrances of the Nobel poet the afternoon of his 75th birthday, April 13, 2014. Maureen’s former Fontbonne English teacher, Sister Thérèse, invited Seamus and he did a reading at Regis. ¶ Louise Luebbers Bain sends greetings from the State of Maine and hopes that everyone had a wonderful summer and that perhaps some visited Maine and Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor. She and husband Murray are located only 50 miles from the coast, and would love to see you anytime! On their quarter-acre lot, they have planted many varieties of dwarf conifers purchased over the years all over the country. Lou is celebrating her 55th high school reunion and is having two former classmates/neighbors stay for the weekend. One is traveling from CA for the festivities and they plan to return to their “old street” and revisit their childhood homes. Lou thanks everyone who worked so hard to make our 50th Reunion so special. “You warmed my heart!” Blessings to you all you from Lou. ¶ From Wyoming, greetings from Pat Lilley Runderberg, who was driving out east to Philly accompanied by Bob and Pepper to visit children. They are due back in early Oct., hopefully prior to snow fall. Bob had a serious accident in July, but is healed now due to huge help of their daughter, Karin, an OR nurse (Karin is the nurse who was at the Rose Bowl Parade that I mentioned last issue, not Una Foley Redgate’s daughter; sorry Pat and Una). ¶ Nancy Mullin sends greetings and reports that her youngest of 13 grandchildren, Roseleen Jay, named for her grandfather, began school this year. Nancy also said how wonderful it was to see so many classmates at our 50th Reunion. ¶ Barbara Loud, CSJ, is back teaching at Regis this semester and said how much she enjoyed our Reunion this past spring as she had taught so many of the younger alums. ¶ Barbara Klarman Summers writes that she has been absorbed this summer with music

ensembles, classical, and recently jazz. She was busy with visiting grandchildren for 6 weeks. She is looking forward to her 50th reunion with Peace Corps colleagues in Provincetown, whom she hasn’t seen since ’64. ¶ Mary McCauley Higgins returned from Maryland, having enjoyed the ocean with grandchildren and family. In Aug., Mary joined many Regis alumni at the Regis College Cape Cod Luncheon at the Wianno Club in Osterville. Joining Mary were Ann McManus Joyce, Susan Donnelly Riley, Kathy McAdams Hughes, Mary Lord Mahoney, Eleanor Forrest Fisher and Pat Cusack Morrison. Everyone enjoyed “catching up.” ¶ Sue Riley shared her exciting news that her oldest grandson joined the Regis freshman class this year. ¶ Alumni Reunion this past May was great. For the first time Regis hosted an AllAlumni Dinner on Saturday during the Reunion Weekend. Ann McManus Joyce, Sister Barbara Loud, CSJ and Mary McCauley Higgins joined with many other classes to celebrate our 51st Reunion. They attended Mass celebrated by Fr. Paul Kilroy followed by a dinner buffet and entertaining music. Mary will be visiting with family throughout the upcoming Holiday Season. ¶ Una Foley Redgate also had a busy summer with volunteer work, church fairs, and golf tournaments. She and Leo planned to visit Judy Fallon Reilly on Cape Cod. They will travel the next 3 seasons. ¶ Peggy Sands Murphy wrote that she and Paul took a trip this past spring to Ireland with their church group. They are planning another trip to Italy next spring with the same group and hope to have an audience with the Pope. They are enjoying retirement, living in an over-55 community in NH. ¶ Helene Swiatek Savicki said summer was fabulous entertaining 6 visiting granddaughters on the Cape, ranging from almost 8 to 10 months. She anticipates a trip to Harry Potter World in September with age 8. She and Bill are proud to share the news that son, Michael, received the “Spirit of the Games” Award at the National Veteran Wheel Chair Games in Tampa in July. The Cup took up the entire back seat of his van. He has participated in these games for over 20 years and won numerous medals. He and his parents were overcome with this honor.

already begun for our 50th Reunion on May 16, 17 and 18. About 15 of us have been meeting monthly since July to plan the events. It’s time to begin planning to join us. We’re hoping that

A Reminder Class notes for the Spring 2014 issue are due to the Office of Institutional Advancement and Alumni Relations by February 1, 2014; each class is limited to 750 words. Notes received after the deadline will run in a later issue. You are invited to submit articles and news that are of interest to your classmates. If you know of an alumna/us who would make an interesting feature story, please let us know. News may be submitted directly to your class reporter or to the Office of Institutional Advancement and Alumni Relations by emailing classnotes@ or mailing: 235 Wellesley St., Box 30, Weston, MA 02493.

all of our classmates will come back to Regis for the festivities. Here are a few things you should know: First, we’re looking for memorabilia. We’re asking for photos, movies, videos of our days at Regis (graduation, Cap and Gown Day, Junior Weekend, Senior Prom, or even of our more recent Reunions). You can send the item—or scan photos and send them by computer. The college archivist, Sister Mary Rita Grady, CSJ, is a member of our class, and she has offered to serve as the collection point for all these items. You can mail them to or email them to: Sister Mary Rita Grady, CSJ, Archivist, Regis College, 235 Wellesley Street, Weston, MA 02493, ¶ Second, we’re looking for people to join committees to help us organize the event. Judy Higgins Donohue is chairing the Promotion committee from Florida, so distance is no excuse! We’d love to have your help and input for these committees: Hospitality, Memorabilia, Liturgy, Parade, Fundraising. If you live close enough to attend our planning luncheons, let us know and we’ll be sure to send you an invitation. You can contact the Reunion chairperson, Pat Luben O’Hearn, at pohearn2@ ¶ Third, please be certain we have your email address. Send it

to Barbara or to me (Virginia) so we can maintain contact with you. Judy Donohue is planning a Reunion website just for us, which she will update weekly, and we want to be able to contact you with such information. ¶ Fourth, please send Barbara or me any contact information you may have on classmates that are listed in the Regis records as “lost”: Mary Crane Abatsis, Monica Belliveau Kane, Carolyn Capra Ryan, Mary Daniels Adams, Cathann Gammons Johnson, Linda Hanley Morris, Joanne Murphy Kiley, Mary McNamara Willey, Lois Pellicelli McHugh, Eleanor Rizzo Morris, Sharon Smith Brainard. ¶ And finally, Regis is planning to offer assistance to anybody who needs it because of physical limitations. There will be golf carts to transport classmates who may have mobility issues; the College will arrange to pick you up at train stations; there will be people to help anybody in a wheelchair, or anybody with vision problems. All you have to do it let us know. Dorm rooms will be available if you want to stay at the College, but rooms will be set aside at a local hotel if you prefer to leave your “dorm days” in the past. ¶ We hope you’re getting the idea that Regis REALLY wants all of us to come back for the 50th Reunion. ¶ And here are the class notes: Shelly Hackett Phipps wrote to me (Barbara Bye Murdock) unsolicited! Great to hear from Shelly as she is so enthusiastic about returning for our big 50th! Shelley and her partner Cathy had a whirlwind tour of the eastern Atlantic region this summer: “We had great adventures, learned some history, visited family, friends, professional colleagues and spent a few hours with Joan Fricker Burritt in Greer, SC, and Maureen Shea Dolan in Falmouth. In Tucson, Cathy and I are continuing with the house renovations and I am getting fit for my 2 USTA competitive tennis teams.” ¶ I wish to update you on the article in Regis Today last fall, “Alumnae Featured in Famous Photograph.” Gary Winogrand, acclaimed photographic artist, captured 6 of us, classmates of ’64 sitting on a bench at the end of the day, after we toured the 1964 World’s Fair. My roommate Mary Crane Fahey discovered this photograph several years ago. Mr. Winogrand passed away in 1984 and today there is heightened interest in his photographing women during the ’60s. His works are also featured in a book, “Women are Beautiful.” This photograph has appeared in a special exhibit at the MFA in Boston in 2011, at San Francisco’s MOMA, and this fall at the Worcester Art Museum. A review of the Worcester exhibit is featured in the WSJ, Sept. 12, 2013, D5. The Winogrand exhibit will continue in 2014 at the National Gallery in DC and at the Met of in NYC. We six are Karen

A scholarship endowment was set up as well. ¶ One of our deceased members Jane Buckley Firla was honored on Aug. 18, with the Buckley Blvd named for her. The road runs along the perimeter of Morrison House, winding out past the Spellman Stamp Museum. Her husband, Bill, generously made a special donation to the College in her honor. ¶ Another classmate, Sister Ellen Powers, was honored with the 2013 Alumni Excellence Award at the Sat night dinner. ¶ One of the benefits of working on the Reunion committee was talking to classmates that had not been heard from. Georgine Volkommer Elsman lives in Charlotte, NC. She would have liked to make the Reunion but wasn’t able to. Another classmate, Judy Krampitz Ream, is living in MN. Connie Barton O’Brien is in Plymouth, MA, and enjoying retirement. Mary Jayne Higgins Johnson was married July 27, 2006 but sadly lost her husband Erle last winter. She is living in Roseville, CA. Joan Iverson Gallivan has moved from an 11-room house, having lived there 47 years, to a 4-room apartment in Norton, MA. ¶ Ann Hughes Restivo asked to remind you about the “Prayer Line,” which is a request for prayers for anyone who needs them. You can get more information from Ann at or at 781-2725682. ¶ Please call or email me when you have any news. I will be travelling in Nov. for 3 weeks, visiting Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos. ¶ Jean Harrington Gefteas has retired from years of teaching in her hometown, Canton. She’s enjoying time with her grandchildren, tutoring, and vacations with her husband, Bill. Chatham and Popponesset are favorite spots. The Lay Apostolate year in St. Thomas, V.I. remains a life-changing milestone. ¶ It is with much sadness that Barbara Groncki Audino reports that her son, Frank L. Audino, 50, passed away unexpectedly Aug. 2. Please keep him and the family in your prayers.

✒Kathleen McCaffrey Ford, 491 Everett St., Westwood, MA 02090, 781-3268273, ¶ Sadly, I


report the death of our classmate and friend Janet Sline Heimbuch. Janet and husband Kenneth lived in Omaha, NE. She is also survived by her daughter Lisa Fox and husband Chris, son David Heimbuch and wife Vanessa Lampe Heinbuch, grandchildren Drew, Jake, and Brooke Fox and Zoe Heimbuch, as well as her brothers Richard and Paul Sline and an aunt Eleanor Sline. ¶ In the fall, Mary Ellen Lavenberg was eagerly anticipating a most difficult spiritual adventure of a lifetime, a 500-mile hike the spiritual Way of Saint James in northwest Spain. In order to celebrate her courage in undertaking this personal challenge and acknowledge her Regis roots, many members of our class pledged support by donating to the Class of 1965 Fund. In the spring, the trustees of our 50th Reunion Class Gift Fund will host a luncheon and a slide show of Mel’s journey. ¶ Class President Katherine Moynihan McGovern and her husband Bernie have become permanent residents of Fort Myers, FL. They will continue to spend summer months in Manchester, CT. ¶ Kathleen Davis Sparrough and husband Michael were looking forward to the birth of their first grandchild in Oct. ¶ A few years ago Joanne Massey Howes engaged in some genealogy research that unveiled several 2nd cousins. Joanne relays her summer highlight: a trip to Ireland to meet them. She and her husband Dick traveled with family for a 5-day reunion attended by over 125 second cousins and their families. ¶ In the fall, Carole Groncki McCarthy and husband Ken planned to travel to Warsaw to pursue Carole’s quest to research family roots. ¶ Again this year, our class had an impressive turnout at the annual Cape Cod Luncheon, which was held in Aug. at the Wianno Club in Osterville. I was joined by Barbara Doran Sullivan, Deidra Casey, Kathleen Frawley Phillips, Anne Marie Fontaine Healey, Patricia Gaumond Kasierski, Sharon Gibbons Riordon, Carole McCarthy, Kathleen Henighan, Anne Heron Healy, Gail Hoffman Burke, Marie Shatos , Mary Ellen Lavenberg, and Katherine McGovern. ¶ Paula Danca Lane forwarded an update written by Dorothy DeVincent Pittorino. Dorothy notes that besides a great education, Regis gave us a circle of friends that we have treasured for nearly 50 years;

they still laugh and enjoy their Regis stories, discuss the latest books, share recipes, and chat about their children and grandchildren. She and Paula get together with Joanne Ansaldi Pyne, Maureen Boyle Butler, Maura Turco Dwyer, Marie Van Buren Mee, Janet White Case, and Carol Wollaston Peecha on a regular basis. Last summer Dot, Carol, and husbands took a river cruise in Eastern Europe. The group’s big annual event is a 3-day visit to Carol’s Cape home. This year to celebrate their 70th birthdays, they plan to go to DC to visit Janet. ¶ I received a “hello” to the Class of ’65 from Patricia Minichino Licklider. After 43 years, Pat is about to retire from teaching English at John Jay College. She is looking forward to spending more time with her daughter’s infant twins, Nancy and Malcolm. Pat and husband Roy love living in NYC. Roy continues to commute to Rutgers where he teaches International Relations, specializing in civil wars around the world. Every summer, they enjoy a month in Maine. ¶ In late Aug., I ventured to NY for a visit with Joanne Massey Howes and Louise Sciubba Young.

Framingham, MA 01701, 508-877-8826, ¶ Season’s

greetings! In Aug., 22 classmates met at the home of Eileen McCann Wickham in Harwichport and talked non-stop for 6 hours—perfect. ¶ Great to see Jane McCarthy Smith and Joan Dorgan Jordan, first-timers at the Cape potluck. Joan lives at Pine Hill in Plymouth, MA, after 31 years in Medfield. ¶ Class Regis Fund rep Beth Healey Kossuth happily reported that our class had 50% participation in fiscal 2012–13, contributing $41,166—excellent for a non-Reunion year. Eileen Gaquin Kelley retired from St. Francis Xavier Prep in Hyannis in June—40 years of teaching, all told. ¶ Jo-Anna Rapp-Holden’s daughter was married last May, and Jo-Anna requested (no, insisted) that guests Diane Valenti Liebmann and Susan Airoldi Kalloch wear their own “mother-of-the-bride/groom” dresses to the event. What a good idea! ¶ In October, Mary Lou Collins and Anne Ross Baxter co-hosted a get-together in Georgetown for the D.C. area ’66ers. ¶ Lida McMahon Harkins, still working at the Massachusetts State House, has begun a side business as a travel organizer, taking a group (including Mary Adams) to Normandy and Paris in October. ¶ Sister Ann Christine, CSJ, also a 1966 graduate of Regis but from the “Framingham Campus,” came to the Cape party and expressed the hope to interest some of her fellow grads to participate in the 50th Reunion. ¶

From Eileen Dooley: “In August, 19 classmates at the U of Chicago from the late ’60s/early ’70s met in Gaithersburg for a reunion after 40 years—it was like yesterday!” Anne Bernson wrote, “In March 2014, to celebrate turning 70, Susan Hennessey Kobayashi, Nancy Greene Barry, Mary McAuliffe and I will cruise from Buenos Aires to Santiago.” ¶ From Kathleen Sullivan: “I remember going to a 5th or 10th Reunion and seeing the blue-haired ladies celebrating their 50th—thinking I’d never get that old...” Kathleen wrote from “WAY downeast South Addison, ME,” where “the news is about being lucky. And grateful.” And we can reassure her, no blue-haired ’66ers! ¶ Irene Megan Norian reports from Middlebury, VT, that she and Roger “hosted multiple sessions of Camp Midd for various clusters of our 10 grandchildren” last summer. ¶ Donna Page Sytek was recognized by the Manchester Union Leader last June for her work “improving our way of life in New Hampshire” and in Oct. received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the NH Business and Industry Association. “Although these sound like end-of-life accolades, I’m still going strong (albeit with a rolling walker).” ¶ Esther Long Krapf was recovering from a hip replacement and still using a cane in September—better now, we hope. ¶ Nancy Corcoran, CSJ reports that she and 829 other sisters attended the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) in Orlando in August. Guest speaker Bishop Sartain answered all audience questions by saying only that he would work with LCWR presidents. ¶ Eleanor Merrigan Olsen is active in the Virginia Beach area DAR and the VA Mayflower descendants. Her goal: to attend the 400th anniversary of the Plymouth landing [2020] with her 5 grandchildren. ¶ From Louisville, KY Carol Cardillo Young wrote about continuing her life’s work resettling refugees in the US in retirement by consulting for the State Department, evaluating refugee agencies all over the country.

Mimi also wrote in about a major life event: “In April, shortly after returning from a trip to Capetown and a safari in the northern part of Kruger National Park on the border of Mozambique, I confronted one of the most dramatic professional experiences of my judicial career.

Hogan was presented with the US Conference of Catholic Bishops 2013 People of Life Award by Cardinal Sean P. O’Malley on August 4th for her lifetime commitment to the pro-life movement. In her full-time work, Fran is a law partner with Lyne, Woodworth and Evarts where she has been since 1970, and helps to provide affordable housing and economic development for people with low incomes. ¶ I met Elaine Simeone Pace and Dan at the Martha’s Vineyard Agricultural Fair, and they are looking forward to the birth of their 4th grandchild. Elaine is involved in teaching memoir writing, and has written her own memoirs. She was a superintendent of schools in New Jersey, and later principal of West Tisbury School, and is now retired spending time between the islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Sanibel in FL where they enjoy winter. ¶ The 1st husband of Ellen Roche Kurcis died, and she later married Wayne Kelly, also widowed, in 2005. She had previously taught his daughter. Together they have a blended family of 6 children and 3 granddaughters. Ellen received a master’s for teachers of English from Georgetown U, and taught at the innovative HB Woodlawn School in Arlington, VA where she still lives.

following months, further proceedings followed about which I cannot write at this time. I had a break in June when my husband was honored by the Austrian Cardiac Society in Salzburg and again in late August, when I performed a wedding on the Isle of Capri and squeezed in visits to Herculaneum and Pompeii.” ¶ George and I sold our Brookline home, are living in Oak Bluffs, and preparing the first floor of our daughter’s Roslindale two-family for our eventual Boston residence. It has been 50 years since we entered Regis, and I suggest the movie The Butler which will bring back memories of historic times of our lives. I recall being in S. Alphonsine’s history class on November 22, 1963 when an announcement came to report to the chapel, and together we mourned the death of President Kennedy. Fifty years of enduring friendships have helped us with all of these big and small moments of our lives. Please keep in touch. ¶ From Anne Hosinski Madden: Andy and I are both fine and very happy. He continues his Portland Police detective work, and has added one day a week with the IRS. We took our second Viking River cruise (Paris to Prague) this spring. I HIGHLY recommend them. I continue with my civic activities—one fun thing was working to elect Suzanne Bonamici as our new congresswoman. MOST fun was adding hula dancing to my water aerobics and yoga workouts. I have joined a kupuna (elders) class and love it all—it’s a cultural immersion besides glorious dancing. Well, the teacher dances gloriously. Gardening is a continuing joy; the Pacific Northwest has just the best climate for it, something like England. The grandchildren are all doing well. I had Ali, 13, and Luke, 10, every Monday this summer. Everett, 5, and Edmund, 3, are bundles of fun. Daughter Katie was featured in billboards for Special Olympics! Her PHAME Academy went on an 8-day bus tour, was featured in a new documentary film, and put on another spectacular Gala, raising $175,000. We celebrated her 40th birthday in grand style—what a gift she has been to us all, wrapped in a package of Down syndrome. ¶ After a fulfilling career as a teacher for over 20 years, I became a math consultant and traveled the country for 8 more years. Then decided TIME TO RETIRE. Now a volunteer quilting for Quilts for Kids, feeding homeless at a shelter, knitting for preemies at the hospital, and still find time for bridge and tennis. Our 3 children are busy with their families in Dallas, Seattle and San Antonio. Grandchildren are in middle school and high school; yikes time flies even faster these days. God has granted us both good health and so we travel far

and wide whenever we can. Our latest trip was a great one to visit Cuba. Hope to see some of you at our 50th. Ellen Collier Szecsy ’67

1394, 161 Oak Ave., St. Augustine, FL 32095, 904-823-1394, tricia.cross915@ ¶ Our 45th Reunion was

a great success! Thanks to the staff in the Regis Office of Institutional Advancement and Alumni Relations for making our requests become reality. Our Regis Reunion Committee, greatly assisted by Carroll Follas and Marcia Spivey of the Regis staff, were continuously helpful. The committee consisted of President Nancy Brine Fredrickson, Judy Murphy Lauch, Marcia Carey Walsh, Mary Beth Govoni Cormier, Nancy Wilson Irwin, Susanne Shaw, and yours truly. Friday evening was a delightful gathering. Food provided by the Regis catering service was enjoyed. It was wonderful to see Ginny Guiliani Davis. Ginny has 1 daughter, Laura, and is an RN in Radiation Oncology at Mt. Auburn Hospital. We had a good group of 20 or so who enjoyed catching up in the beautifully renovated Angela Hall Lounge. President Toni Hays paid us a surprise visit, and all were very impressed by her warmth and enthusiasm. ¶ Saturday started early for some who walked/ ran around campus, others attended an alumni presentation in College Hall, then all gathered for the Parade of Classes. There is a great picture on the Regis website of Maryanne Skeiber Burtman, Nancy Fredrickson, and Sandy Kowalski Diaferio carrying the banner. Those who attended at least 1 event of the Reunion Weekend were: Marlena Belviso Santomero, Barbara Bouchard Haggerty, Nancy Fredrickson, Elizabeth Brush Petzke, Marcia Walsh, Claire Dibbern Hallisey, Clare Doyle Hayes, Dawn-Marie Driscoll, Katherine Finucane May, Linda Gaioni Dranchak, Jeannie Gianturco Jaroszewski, Virginia Davis, MaryBeth Cormier, Ellen Grimes Aamodt, Ellen Kelly Biordi, Sandra Diaferio, Katharine Lilly Engle, Marion Marascio Voorheis, Kathleen McFarland Kelly, Joanne McKeough Eldred, Judith Lauch, Mary Murray Early, Tricia Nelson Cross, Maryanne Burtman, Jo Sullivan, Christine Wende Knoll, Marsan Wilding Patton, Nancy Irwin, Nancy Zamierowski, and Joanne Zandi Clifford. ¶ A highlight was the class meeting. Organized by Judy and Tish, it was a great opportunity to visit, learn about the College, and then Tish initiated conversation about life challenges, family, careers, retirement, and other topics. Several classmates offered insights: Linda Dranchak described turning her love and talent for quilting into a

successful business, finishing quilts made by clients around the country. Clare Hayes, mother of 2 boys, told us of her fulltime commitment to a clinic, named in honor of her late husband, that has grown over the last few years. She is happy she returned to fulltime work in a meaningful way. Joanne Zandi Clifford, mother of 1 son, told of the sadness of losing 2 husbands. Her move to delightful Dennis, MA, was a positive step and she is enjoying her busy life. Tish told us about her company coaching and counseling executives and organizations in Germany and beyond. Her success proves she is the perfect person for such a career. Other things we learned: Marsan is excited planning daughter Avery’s summer wedding, which will be held at their Duxbury home, Mary Murray is a serious Zumba enthusiast, Marlena Belviso, our ’68 yearbook editor, flew up from Wynnewood, PA, accompanied by her husband, had good visit with Sister Marie de Salles. Also attending the luncheon were Sister John Regis and Sister Cecelia Agnes, 2 of the most popular nuns, especially to science and math majors. Sister Cecelia Agnes surprised us all by reading a get-well card that 10 of us sent to her when she was hospitalized during our senior (I think) year. She had saved it all these years! At the close of the meeting Class Officers were elected. President: Judy Lauch, Fund Agent: Marcia Walsh, Class Reporter and 50th Reunion Chair: Tricia Cross. The Saturday evening dinner was reportedly very well-attended with a surprising 25% of revelers from classes other than Reunion classes. ¶ The Reunion was so much fun that some locals decided to get together for lunch in Waltham in mid-July. Nancy Zamierowski, Nancy Fedrickson, Claire Hallisey, Ellen Aamodt, Mary Beth Cormier, and Judy Lauch. Nancy Zamierowski has retired as Asst. Superintendent of Boston public schools and is enjoying the opportunity to travel. Nancy Fredrickson is back on her motorcycle (!) and also doing a good job posting pictures on our Facebook page. Mary Beth is looking forward to her son Jimmy, a biochemical scientist, getting married. ¶ The Regis College Cape Cod Luncheon was held at the Wianno Club in Osterville on Aug. 8. Attending were: Claire Hallisey, Judy Lauch, Barbara Murphy, Tricia Cross, Anne Marie Tucker Brooks, Marcia Carey, Mary Beth Cormier, Joane Clifford and yours truly. It was wonderful to see Barbara and Anne Marie who we had not been to a Regis function in years. Barbara retired as Director, Fidelity Investments and is active in her parish.

received your save-the-date magnet. Yes, that’s right! It’s our 45th Reunion! Start making plans now. Contact your “old” roommate and your friends. I (and I’m sure you as well) can’t believe it’s been almost 45 years since College Hall, wearing “beanies” and a toothbrush around our neck, signing out and signing in, curfews, the mad dash to get into the dining room, mystery meat, trench coats over our gym clothes, no jeans, etc. Oh, and the big one….No Men! ¶ It made us who we are today. We ARE the mature group of women we were always awed by at previous Reunions or functions at Regis. Welcome to Senior Citizen Discounts and all the good and not-so-good that comes with it. ¶ I hope you will all consider coming to the Reunion. ¶ Also please consider being Class Reporter. My husband has just recently retired and we plan to do a lot of traveling and together activities. I would appreciate it if someone took over the position. You can let me know by email or call 724342-5306. If you need more time, let me know at the Reunion.


✒Nora Quinlan Waystack, 978-3144416, ¶ Thank you to all who sent us news keeping us informed about life after our Regis graduation. With sadness we report the loss in Feb. 2013 of our dear friend and classmate, Marite Kelly Koch. Marite’s wit, intelligence, and kindness touched us all. Our deepest sympathies go out to Marite’s family. ¶ Carol Giacomo reflecting on the passing of Sister Jeanne d’Arc has submitted a piece to Regis notes online sharing “two experiences that have informed my life and career.” (see Regis class notes online). ¶ Barbara Carley Deutmeyer attended the U of NH after her Regis graduation and earned a MA in German. On the first day of class, she met her husband Jim Deutmeyer from Iowa. They have been married and living in Iowa for 42 years. They travel from city to city to stay connected with their 3 children, Hans in Brooklyn, Kristin in Chicago, and Kurt in Denver, as well as grandchildren Eleanor and Ben. Barbara retired after teaching German for 32 years and is currently enjoying the new challenge of teaching 2 online classes to students all over the world. She is thrilled by this wonderful transition into retirement: “I love it. I have students who come from all over, recently in China and Mexico.” And she is still able to have coffee with friends and travel. ¶ Anne Finigan Doane is living in Lake Bluff, IL, with her husband Carl and working on her bucket list. Their son Eric along with his wife and children, Genevieve Elizabeth and Brigitte, reside in their nearby home just in front of Anne and Carl’s house. Anne’s son Nathan is a lawyer and works in Virginia. During this summer when the family got together there were 6 or more adults, 2 children, and 6 dogs all in 2 houses on 2 acres of land. Anne taught for 12 years in the Chicago Catholic schools and is currently substituting in 2 public school districts. She is the Executive Director of a new not-for-profit, Kids Rank. The organization was “founded on the premise that military children deserve to be recognized both for their resilience and sacrifice; as their families move, and they change schools.” For fun Anne is working on her 3rd family history book, as well as painting and selling her art work. She specializes in scenes from Cape Cod and her hometown of Concord, MA. Members of the Class of 1970 are invited to give Anne a call when visiting in the Chicago area. ¶ Kathy Lockwood Murphy appreciates “the exceptional hosting skills of Jane Scott O’Brien at the Nirvana Manor, where Mike and Anne Marie Hurley Sullivan, Tom and Peggy Burns Morrison, Peter and Cathy Giardi Swanson, Skip and Kathy Murphy Lockwood, Tom and Vicki Connelly

Bourne, Milt and Nancy Higgins Hendon, Pat Daddabo Watrous, Anne Nigro, and Chris Hansen McGill enjoyed a wonderful

weekend of nurturing our bodies and minds.“Their trip to North Conway, NH, was a celebration of their very significant birthdays as they reflected, “We are 64 going on 65 still trying to find our way.” The group missed Kitty Ryan Micale, Marcia Ragonese Falzone, and Mary Lowney Mitchell who had to cancel at the last minute. This group of our classmates experienced careers as educators, interrogators, social workers, community volunteers, entrepreneurs, and authors and travelled across US, Canada, China, South America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. They once sought advice from someone “older and wiser,” but are now appreciating the wisdom of viewing life through their grandchildren’s eyes. ¶ We always enjoy hearing from you. It would be wonderful to be updated on what is happening with our classmates as we anticipate our forty-fifth Reunion from Regis.

I had dinner in Aug. with Rita Famiglietti Lash, as she had missed Reunion for her son Stephen’s master’s graduation from Villanova. He was married Labor Day weekend. ¶ After reconnecting at Reunion, Clare Hayes gave me a tour of the much-expanded Lynn Community Health Center, where she is a Development Officer.

He was a great man and the best dad.

Anthony is 20 and works for Stop n’ Shop. My daughter Audrey is 16 and a junior in high school.

I returned to Regis in 2007 and graduated in 2010 with my Master’s in Teaching with a focus in Special Education Grades Pre-K–8. After working at a public charter school for 6 years, I took a great leap into a town public. I recently moved to a new school and now teach at East Bridgewater Middle/High School. It is a brandspanking-new school with every bell and whistle possible. It is a far cry from the archaic school I just left. I teach a wonderful bunch of middle school students who struggle with languagebased disabilities. My days are long, but so rewarding. I am looking forward to this Nov. when I will be visiting with some old friends, Anne McKeeverFenlason, Karen Bent-Colpak, Lisa Ambrose-Briggs, Marie Desrosiers-Wahl, and Marta Suarez-Carson, who will be visiting Boston from Florida.

Seeing the ‘Whole Child’ BY Patr ic ia d ibona ’8 4


When Donna Winderl-Malyak, MSN, transitioned from a 30-year career in family practice to her current job as the nurse practitioner at Trinity Catholic Academy in Brockton, Mass., it was a way to reconnect with children and make a difference in their lives. Four years later, it’s clear that she has done just that. The compact health office she shares with her own students—aspiring pediatric and family nurse practitioners from Regis—has become a safe haven for 200 urban parochial school students, a non-threatening place where they can seek help either when sick or when some aspect of their well-being is in question. This has become more than a typical school nurse’s office. Here, across from the gym and down the hall from the cafeteria, students receive the attention— and the caring—so critical to quality primary health care. On any given day, Winderl-Malyak, a board-certified advanced practice registered nurse (APRN-BC) and family nurse practitioner, may assess a student complaining of ear pain. She performs an exam and diagnoses an ear infection. “I will call the parent and offer the option of being seen by the pediatrician or being treated by me. It offers the parent the option of not needing to miss work and the child being able to remain in school,” she said. The school setting allows nurse practitioners like Winderl-Malyak to forge strong relationships with children. “Unlike a medical facility, the school lets us see kids in their own environment, as they walk through the hall and interact with peers. We see what they’re like developmentally, something particularly important with adolescents,” said family nurse practitioner Cynthia Bashaw, MS, APRN-BC,

assistant professor of nursing at Regis and director of the nurse practitioner program. Pediatric nurse practitioner Nancy DelGuidice, MSN, Regis faculty liaison for school-based nurse practitioner health services, phrased it this way: “Donna is acutely aware of how disruption in any aspect of a child’s life affects school performance. She is an integral member of the Trinity team, which includes the administration and teachers.” The nurse practitioner students get to witness this teamwork in action. Cynthia McNally, former principal and now acting interim regional director at Trinity, where WinderlMalyak has precepted over 60 Regis nurse practitioner students, explained, “Donna doesn’t just look at a child’s symptoms—she looks at the whole child.” Pediatric nurse practitioner student Erica Holleran ’14 has learned that conversations with children often lend insight into psychological issues or problems at home. Headaches and stomach pain may have underlying causes. Her classmate Casey Leber ’14, a family nurse practitioner student, noted that pediatric placements are hard to come by and said this one is not only special but has changed her perspective on pediatric health care. “When a child goes to the pediatrician, the parent often speaks for him. Here, we get to hear the child’s voice.” Regis faculty and students began caring for Catholic schoolchildren at Boston archdiocesan schools in the 1990s through a Department of Public Health grant. Five years ago, trustee Sister Mary Anne Doyle, CSJ, PhD, of the Catholic Schools Office of the Archdiocese of Boston, contacted then-

Dean of the School of Nursing, Sciences and Health Professions Antoinette Hays, PhD, RN, and asked if she could replicate the Boston work in Brockton. Dr. Hays embraced the idea. With grant monies no longer available, Regis allocated full-time funds for a clinical faculty, and Trinity Catholic Academy arranged for the clinical space and supplies. “It has become an incredible academic partnership that creates wonderful opportunities for both sides,” President Hays said. Trinity’s advanced practice nursing model is now taking shape at Saint Joseph Preparatory High

School in Brighton. According to Bashaw, it offers a win-win situation for all involved. “Regis nurse practitioner students need pediatric clinical experience and the Catholic schools need our service. It is a beautiful articulation.” Trinity pediatric nurse practitioner student Stephanie Joe ’14 agrees. ”I have had a lot of independence seeing clients as well as obtaining assistance whenever I need it. Donna has provided me with new knowledge and guidance to become a great pediatric nurse practitioner in the future.”
