Letters to the Editor “As I read the Reflections newsletter, I pondered the changes since I left in 1973. I have sent many students to Siena over the years, including a daughter, son and daughter-in-law. All three are teachers, and I’m proud they graduated from Siena. The worry I have is that the standards just are not the same. ...the old lessons of the nuns have served me well. Your newsletter showed many of the old guard; how many do you have teaching like that today? The name change—was it worth it? Don’t forget the non-trads (non-traditional students) and remember that progress does not have to trample the best practices of the past.” John B. Irelan ‘73 Pittsford, MI

“The Siena newsletter is very interesting. Blessings. I loved the pictures of former faculty — Sister Benedicta Marie, in particular.” Margaret Gleason Flanagan ‘44 Milwaukee, WI

President’s Message

From the Heights President

Siena University: Yours, Mine and Ours! n recent months, our marketing efforts have promoted the theme, Siena Heights is My University, emphasizing not only our new name but also our continued commitment to personalized education. We want each student who enrolls, at any Siena Heights location across the state, to encounter the kind of individual attention and challenge that produces strong feelings of ownership and pride. “Siena Heights is MY University!” This issue of Reflections is tangible evidence that Siena Heights is, indeed, your University. We are grateful to the hundreds of people who contributed their treasure and time to Siena Heights in 1997-98: This is your university. We are overwhelmed by the willingness of alumni to reach out and share their lives through reunion notes: Siena Heights is your university. We rejoice in the efforts and achievements of students, faculty and friends, whose faces on each page remind us of the diverse community that is Siena: This is your place. We give thanks for the wisdom of the Adrian Dominicans, without whose vision there would be no Siena Heights: Most certainly, this university is yours. One of the most rewarding aspects of events such as Alumni/Family Weekend is the opportunity to put faces with names. This year’s 50th Reunion Breakfast, for example, brought me face to face for the first time with more of our “valiant women.” Throughout that day, at the soccer field, under the tailgate tent, and at the Delta Lambda Chapter installation of the national sorority, Alpha Sigma Tau, I met our students’ parents. Across the tables at the Las Vegas Night, more connections of names and faces occurred with our alumni. Meeting alumni, students, parents and donors— turning names into real people, with real concern and affection for Siena Heights— is the most satisfying part of my job. As Reflections goes to press and a new year approaches, I encourage you to make Siena Heights our university in 1999. Attend an alumni gathering (we’re meeting in Chicago and St. Joseph, Michigan, in mid-December) or call us and offer to host one. Contact a past professor or that friend who sat next to you in English class. Attend our concerts, plays, art exhibits, and athletic events. Support the Annual Fund. Mention Siena Heights to a prospective student. The importance of ownership was brought home to me when I heard a conference speaker ask the audience, “When was the last time you washed a rental car?” Our university is a great legacy for generations to follow. Thank you for helping take care of it.

3 Names and Faces In the upper corner of each page of this issue of Reflections is a student, faculty member or staff member, graduate, friend or Trustee. All have made Siena Heights their university. How many faces do you recognize? The answers are below. 2

Giving Report

4 A Message of Thanks From the Board of Trustees What a great time to serve among the leadership for Siena Heights University! Enrollment is up; the budget is balanced; and gift totals are exceeding goals. I am impressed with the numbers of persons, from all walks of life, who congratulate us on our University status and who want to know more about Siena Heights. We have sparked their interest. I am impressed with the dedication of faculty, staff— and students— who fulfill the mission of Siena Heights: assisting people to become more competent, purposeful and ethical through a teaching and learning environment which respects the dignity of all. And I am impressed with the caliber of strength and commitment demonstrated by our Board of Trustees who give generously of their time, knowledge, special skills, and resources. I am proud to stand with my colleagues to promote quality higher education in the tradition of the Adrian Dominican Sisters. Last but not least, I am impressed with, and inspired by, the hundreds of graduates and friends who have chosen to support this great institution. To all of you whose names make up this Giving Report, I extend my deepest thanks. In the spirit of Siena,

Supporting Siena Heights arren and Catherine Reuther of Lambertville are neither Siena Heights alumni, nor parents of Siena graduates, nor even long-time neighbors of the campus. Yet, over the last decade, they have become two of the most generous and committed supporters of the University. In 1997-98, they personally contributed $250,000 to establish an endowed professorship, while Warren’s business, Bay Corrugated Container, Inc., donated an additional $240,000 for physical plant projects. What inspires such generosity in a husband and wife with no obvious ties to Siena Heights? The answer is a story of serendipity and simple faith, grounded—as is so much at this University—in the enduring influence of the Adrian Dominican Sisters. Some years ago, several Siena Heights representatives walked unannounced into the Monroe offices of Bay Corrugated, approached its owner, and asked for a donation. As it happened, another of the causes Warren Reuther usually supported had neglected to ask. Siena Heights received the gift. Catherine Reuther recognized the Siena Heights name from her school days in Detroit, studying with the Adrian Dominican Sisters at St. Jude Elementary School. “I just loved the nuns,” she recalls now. “They were so modern and fun loving in their white habits. They smiled a lot—there were no sour faces! They were good teachers, too. They helped you if you needed help.” And one more thing: “They always talked about Siena Heights.” So Catherine was delighted to hear about Warren’s drop-in guests, and his response to their request. The rest, you might say, is history. “Whatever I have, was given to me by God,” says Warren, explaining his and Catherine’s belief in sharing their good fortune with good causes. Education is their chosen cause. “With the way the world is, we think Catholic education, or any Christian school, is the best place to send your kids,” Catherine says. “But it’s not just money,” says Warren, who also spearheaded a major partnership between business and education in Monroe and Lenawee counties. Payback for Education brings children to the workplace to see where their education might lead and takes business leaders to the schools as tutors. “You see, it’s about working together to solve a problem.” The Reuthers have been identifying problems and solutions at Siena Heights ever since someone thought to ask Warren for help. “You can’t do it all at once,” he says. “If the problem is too big, you break it into workable pieces,” which is what he did recently when evaluating needs in Siena’s science division and in its physical plant. “First we have to take care of the immediate needs—wages and equipment—then focus on endowment for the long range.” It won’t all happen with big gifts, either. “Whatever a person can give is welcome,” says Catherine. “Anyone who graduated should want to give. If you’ve been lucky, if you’ve been successful, you want to give back some of the good you’ve received from the Lord.” The lessons taught long ago at St. Jude still resonate. The nuns would be pleased.

Other major gifts to Siena Heights in 1997-98: Supporting technology: $600,000 over three years from Orville and Ruth Merillat Foundation; $100,000 from the Adrian Dominican Sisters; $33,000 over three years from Masco Company Foundation and Merillat Industries; $32,000 from an anonymous donor.

Douglas Kapnick Chairperson of the Board

Supporting scholarships: $100,000 over five years from Farver Foundation, Herb and Connie Farver; a $350,000 planned gift from David Stevens. Supporting learning: $10,000 from Dana Corporation Foundation for improvements in the science labs; $10,000 from Kellogg Company for a distance learning facility. Supporting facilities: $180,000 from the Herrick Foundation for projects including a stage floor in Francoeur Theatre and science lab equipment; $62,426 from the Maurice and Dorothy Stubnitz Foundation for lighting in Francoeur; $50,000 over three years from Wilma Christiansen for a softball field.

Siena Heights has offered undergraduate classes on the campus of Lake Michigan College since 1982. Graduate classes began in 1995. The Benton Harbor center was Siena’s first degree completion program on a community college campus, and the successful partnership with Lake Michigan College established the model which Siena Heights has used effectively since then. Siena Heights at LMC enrolls a largely non-traditional student body, including many working adults whose employers assist them with tuition assistance, as well as an unusual number of

Founded in 1919 by the Adrian Dominican Sisters as St. Joseph College for women, the college was renamed Siena Heights in 1939 and became coeducational about 30 years later. In its early years, the college primarily educated students for teaching careers. The curriculum expanded in the 1960s to include programs in business and human services. In the 1970s, Siena played a pioneering role in developing education opportunities for adult students, both in Adrian and at its first degree-completion center in Southfield. Graduate studies have been part of the Siena Heights academic program since 1957. Today’s diverse curriculum includes undergraduate and graduate classes offered weekdays, evenings and weekends, meeting the needs of students of many ages, backgrounds and educational goals. The name change to Siena Heights University occurred on July 1, 1998.

Connie Berube Binsfeld ‘45 recently was selected by the Michigan Women’s Studies Association for the Michigan Hall of Fame. She was nominated for the honor (which is awarded to past and present Michigan women who have made contributions “of an enduring nature” in history) by Michigan Governor John Engler, with whom she has served as Lieutenant Governor for eight years. “Connie Binsfeld’s name has become synonymous with children’s advocacy because she has done everything within her power to help children in need, from chairing the Children’s Commission, to introducing the nation’s first bills banning commercial surrogacy, to personally holding drugaddicted babies in her arms,” Engler said. “You can measure her success by the new laws protecting neglected and abused children that are a direct result of her Children’s Commission recommendations, the 95% increase in the number of adoptions in our state since she became lieutenant governor, and many other impressive statistics.” Engler also noted Connie’s successes as a mother, school teacher, Scout leader, legislator and community activist. She was Michigan’s Mother of the Year in 1977. Only 120 women have been inducted into the Hall of Fame since it was founded. Class of ‘48: See 50th Reunion Notes

After retirement, she taught three years at the college level, “which I loved. However, a recurrence of cancer and the subsequent treatments meant that I could not be reliable, so I reluctantly resigned from my college teaching.” Undaunted, she fulfilled a lifelong dream in July, celebrating her 71st birthday by making a parachute jump. “It was great! We have taken a hotair balloon ride which was wonderful, but this was much more exciting, though of considerably shorter duration!” Bea and her husband, Bob, had three sons: Tim and Terry “who keep us on our toes,” and Kevin, who died tragically at age 26. Volunteer commitments have included the Detroit Institute of Arts, a local Citizens Watch, and St. Hugo of the Hills church. Bea adds, “I am the official knitter of baby afghans in our large extended family. I am an avid reader of all literary genres and have to start my day with coffee and the Wall Street Journal. I enjoy gardening, Detroit Tiger Baseball games, cooking and a variety of musical events. The years since June 1948 have been rewarding and wonderful. The most I could ever wish would be to have many more of them.” Therese Craig, OP (formerly Sister Rose Terrence) of Adrian entered the Adrian Dominican Congregation at the end of her freshman year and graduated with her own class in 1948. She taught in Michigan and Illinois elementary schools for four years, in Congregation high schools in Detroit for 14 years, and at Siena Heights for 10 years. She subsequently spent 17 years at the University of Alberta, Canada, training secondary education teachers. Returning to the states, “I was led to a new ministry in Spiritual Direction and in leading workshops in Journaling and Dreamwork.”

Reunion Notes Rosemary Dorr of Clinton Twp. went to work after graduation as a foster care/ adoption worker for St. Vincent de Paul child care agency in Detroit. Five years later she followed her second interest, writing, and began a journalism career that included 13 years with a publishing company and 26 years with The Detroit News. At the News, she first wrote the Experience Column, then a consumer problems column, and, beginning in 1987, the weekly “A Child is Waiting” column. “Once again, I was visiting foster homes, interviewing children, working with agencies, all for the purpose of finding adoptive families for hard-to-place children.” Although she retired from her full-time job in ‘92, she still writes “A Child is Waiting” each week. Never involved in athletics as a student, Rosemary discovered sailing, skiing, mountain climbing and horseback riding after graduation. “And ‘chronologically gifted’ though I am, I still downhill ski (in eight years I can ski free at Alta!). I still climb mountains, but not as high. And I still ride my favorite horse each week, with fond Siena memories of horseback riding with Father Dorsey.” Church and volunteer work, travel, theatre, friendships and family activities “this and more have filled my time and heart.” Marie Berthiaume Frappier and her husband, Bob, a general practitioner, retired to Las Vegas, NV, after “35 good years” in Clio and Flint. They return to Michigan each year, spending summers on Marquette Island in the Upper Peninsula. Their three children live in Michigan, Ohio and Las Vegas, with a total of nine grandchildren and one great-grandchild. Marie had bypass surgery in ‘85 “but for the most part it has been a very fulfilling, satisfying life. Fun, too!” Estela Cintron Kuptzin of New London, CT, first taught home economics in Puerto Rico, then moved with her husband, Albert, to New York City, where she substitute taught and worked as a translator in the Empire State Building. In 1953, they moved to Connecticut where Albert worked as a nuclear designer for Electric Boat. After her sons were in school, she returned to education, teaching 4th grade for 21 years until she retired following Albert’s stroke. “Even though I missed the classroom, I never for a moment regretted having to quit my job and stay home with my husband for the last two years of his life.

I’m now doing substitute work two or three days a week. It keeps me busy and active.” She enjoys visiting her two sons and three grandchildren and traveling. “In February, I’m looking forward to a trip to Israel and I can’t wait to walk through the land of Jesus.” Mary Conway Stonehill Mullins (a three-year member of the Class of ‘48 who graduated in 1954) of Eastpointe has had “a wonderful, sad, wonderful life.” Upon her first husband’s death in ’65, she became a single mother of four girls, ages 5-9. Four years later, she married Stanley Mullins who had five sons and a daughter of his own. Then came daughter Catherine, named after St. Catherine of Siena. The 11 children (and 13 grands) now live in Michigan, Illinois, Tennessee, Alabama and Canada. Through the years, Mary has been very active in the church, helping to organize Citizens for Decency through Law, an anti-pornography group; working as a Eucharistic Minister and Lector; joining the Divine Mercy Group, and making a Cursillo retreat. She also has visited Rome, Lourdes, Lisieux, and Knock, Ireland. Frances Bock Nowakowski and her husband, Al, live in Avoca “on the same farm that provided a warm home to 10 children, 23 exchange students, in-laws, and many friends. Our 40 acres presented lots of gardening, recreating, camping, celebrating, 4-H and church work.” Frances taught school for more than 20 years, beginning when she was asked to help with an overloaded class at a Catholic elementary school. Later, she taught high school mathematics in the

29 public schools. She also was a 4-H leader and a regent in her Daughters of Isabella church organization. Today, she and Al “spend summers in a house full of people. Winters find us in Florida, enjoying the sunshine and another extended family.” Rita Binsfeld O’Connor writes: “I haven’t done anything remarkable. Did some traveling overseas with my husband’s work, did church work, etc. It looks like, after law office work and Charlie and I were married, our main accomplishment was having and raising 11 beautiful children. Fortunately for us, all but one live in Michigan, most of them in northern Michigan.” With 22 grandchildren, they never lack for parties and fun. “We’ve had our ups and downs but the sense of humor and faith He gave us always pulled us through,” Rita says. “We consider this time of our lives as bonus time. It’s still Charlie and me, 50 years married.” Theresa O’Reilly of Erie, PA, had a varied career working: as a writer at the Catholic Courier Journal in Rochester (NY), in the library at St. John Fisken College in Rochester, as a writer and columnist for the Buffalo (NY) Evening News, as an activist at a social service agency, and as a landlord and buyer/rebuilder of houses. After her divorce, she worked at the State Employment office. “My four children and three grandchildren are my job these days, followed by gardening, both in my up-

traveled to Europe and took two ocean cruises before meeting and marrying her husband, John, who had four sons ages 922, in 1964. “From the day we were married, my life changed completely, and for the better. I learned and liked camping with the younger boys and enjoyed sailing on Lake St. Clair for 16 years.” Sally and John live in Indian River and love the north country. Sally knits and makes latch hook rugs and, having survived two cancer bouts, “looks forward to many happy years.” Bette Jaminet Rowe retired in 1991 after 40 years of rich and rewarding work teaching kindergarten; but she continues to volunteer at the St. Clair elementary school where she worked for many of those years, and where her daughter now teaches kindergarten. Bette and her husband, Al, live in East China in the Marine City area in a home they built on the St. Clair River in 1965. Through the years, Bette has been active on the school board, parish council, Catholic Study Club, Interfaith Choir, Port Huron Musicale and Chorus, St. Clair Music Study Club and Alpha Delta Kappa, an international sorority of women teachers. Ruth Wagner Schieltz and her husband, George, live on a 65-acre farm near Versailles, OH, where they have resided for 42 years. “We are now letting it go back to nature. A prairie has reappeared with plants not seen here for hundreds of years.” Ruth spent 31 years in education. In addition to her career and rearing four children, Ruth’s hobby has been researching family ancestry. “I have published five family history books; the last of which was over 600 pages of information. We even attended a family reunion with 5th cousins in Belgium.” Dorothy Noetzel Sullivan of Southfield writes: “After Siena, I entered the Dominican order and stayed for 18 months. Returning home, I taught 2nd grade at a Catholic school. I married Tom in 1953. We were blessed with nine children, all of whom have at least one college degree. Our youngest is a Siena alumnus. We lead a simple life enjoying our 22 grandchildren.” Katherine Rink Suydam of Adrian summarizes life since Siena this way: “50 years married, 3 kids, 6 grandchildren, 100 animals, 27.4 years teaching, master’s degree.” At her wedding to Ken, shortly after graduation, she wore a wedding

Alice Miller Swartz of Perry lived for a few years in Arizona after marrying her husband, Lee, but returned to Michigan in the ‘50s to raise eight children, now four teachers, a doctor and three with other specialties. Alice retired in ‘94 after 20 years as a hearing specialist for the Shiawassee County Health Department, and now spends time with family, friends and volunteer church activities. Mary Kershner Van Tuyle and her husband, Willard, live in Bay City. “After raising two sons, with all the volunteer work that goes with that, I moved on to the volunteer work I enjoy the most: fine arts. For about 20 years, I did a lot of weaving and won quite a few awards. For the past nine years, I’ve been designing and making clay sculptures. My specialty is raku, a special firing technique with lots of surprises!” Son Gregory is a nuclear engineer at Los Alamos (NM) National Laboratory; son Jeffrey is vice president of marketing for Serta Mattress in Chicago. Bernadine Maginsky Weeg married Martin in 1949 and “spent the next 30 years giving birth to and raising eight children (6 boys, 2 girls) and moving: 11 different addresses in Davenport, IA, Cheyenne, WY, Boulder and Denver, CO, Rochester, NY, Orlando, FL, and back to Rochester” where she lives now. Martin died of cancer in ‘83. Bernie retired in ‘89 after 12 years as secretary for the U. of Rochester Pediatric Residency program. “Since then I’ve been making up for the many years of going only to church, the supermarket and PTA meetings. I started with a 5countries-in-9-days bus tour of Europe, then discovered Elderhostels and have been to 11, the best one being two weeks of painting in Wales in sight of Mt. Snowdon.” She has renewed her love of art (painting and drawing) and has won awards and sold paintings. She also writes for Christian magazines and is very active in “an affirming, postVatican II parish.”

Linda Mohr Brennan and her husband, Michael, of Adrian celebrated their 25th anniversary in September. They have five children: Jason, Matthew, David, Sarah, and Ryan. Linda writes, “I taught 6th grade and 2nd grade before staying home with the babies. I continued teaching adult and alternative education for the last 17 years. I’m currently teaching at Lenawee PREP Academy, a school for teen parents and their infants. I also volunteer as a 4H leader and serve on the 4H council and small animal board.” Her hobbies include basket making and raising horses, goats and poultry.

well as being active in her church and with “Meals on Wheels.” She and her husband traveled a great deal, including a 41st anniversary trip to Asia, prior to her husband’s debilitating stroke four years ago. Dolores now is his primary caregiver. Despite some health problems of her own, “I’m grateful for God’s daily strength that He provides for our needs.” Kathryn Forner and her son, Andy (15) live in Duncanville, TX. Kathy teaches at an inner-city school in Dallas. She began her career in Michigan, teaching at Catholic schools and working in local theatre until “the acting bug” prompted a move to NYC in ‘76. “I continued teaching school during the days while auditioning and waitressing at night. Never made it to Broadway but did manage one off-Broadway show and a multitude of ‘guts’ along the way! After deciding it was just too darn expensive to live in Manhattan on a Catholic teacher

and waitress salary, I made another bold move to the Twin Cities.” She stayed in Minneapolis for nine years, venturing into the business world of TV (sales assistant), advertising (media buyer), and American Express (customer service representative). A return to Michigan brought her back into the Catholic school classroom, where she taught until accepting an offer from the Dallas Public Schools. “We have been in the Dallas area for 5 years now and have adjusted nicely, though I would still jump at the chance to return north. The sad part of these last years, however, came most unexpectedly when I had a heart attack at the age of 41, followed three months later by another (minimal) heart attack and then open-heart surgery. Talk about a MAJOR change! Though my life, feelings, fears, styles will never again be the same, I feel blessed indeed at being given ‘another chance.’ And who could ask for a better gift from our dear Lord?” Grace Gruenwald Hanke taught for 32 years including serving as principal before retiring from St. John’s Lutheran School in Adrian. She also earned her master’s at Siena in ‘78. She and Robert, her husband of 45 years, have five adult children, three in the teaching/preaching ministry and two married to teachers. “We have the farm just east of Siena so when I attended Siena I was able to walk to classes. We still enjoy going to Siena’s athletic events and other campus activities.” Charlotte Ford Kalbfleisch lives in North Branch with her husband, Paul, whom she married in 1986 after 15 years of dating. Charlotte taught in Catholic schools in Harbor Beach and Lapeer for 21 years, and now is in her fourth year as a substitute teacher in public schools (“I enjoy the variety!) and religious education coordinator at her church. “We have no children, just nephews and nieces we spoil every chance we get,” including on summer camping trips through Michigan. “Looking forward to retirement in the far future!” John Petkus and his wife, Mary Ann Meagan Petkus ‘72, live in Antioch, IL, where they own several Pik Kwik grocery stores and have a large interest in Pik Kwik Foods. John began his career as an

Reunion Notes elementary teacher, and continues his involvement in education as a coach (baseball, iceless hockey and basketball for the past 10 years with more than 30 teams) and school board member (seven years on the board including one term as president). There are four Petkus children: Matthew, Andrew, Maegan and Katherine. “Katie joined our family in 1997. What a 25th wedding anniversary gift from the People’s Republic of China! We received her at Changsaw City, Hunan Province in mainland China. That was our journey of a lifetime.” John says Siena contributed “to my belief that BMWs, luxury condos and overflowing bank accounts do not make one rich. Rather, community service, family commitment and Christian values always provide a higher yield of personal prosperity. I believe that Siena is still a broker of those priceless commodities.” Bonnie Mae Baughey Watters of Adrian has been involved with children for five decades: In addition to 50 years teaching Sunday school, she taught elementary students in rural Lenawee County and in Adrian for 27 years before retiring in 1989. She and her husband, George, also have worked with the children’s division of Adrian Probate and been foster parents to 35 young girls and boys. They also enjoy being parents and grandparents to their two grown children and six “grands.” Although George had quintuple bypass surgery two years ago, “with the help of God, we plan to enjoy our future years traveling and enjoying our home, family, church and friends, living our lives to the fullest.” Carol Weber, OP made her final profession as an Adrian Dominican in 1975, then earned a Master of Divinity degree. She lives in Otisville where she is pastoral coordinator in a parish without a resident priest. “My hobbies include walking, quilting and photography. My greatest joy is experiencing people, children and adults, as they grow in their faith.” Jean Rahilly lives in Enon, OH, and works at Wright Patterson Air Force Base as a logistics management specialist, helping implement new software for combat readiness. She began working for the Air Force in ‘74 as a technical instructor at Chanute AFB in Illinois, “but I ended up teaching basic statistics to new airmen for their first jobs in the Air Force. I was selected as Air Training Command Instructor of the Year in ‘79. Jean is “still taking lots of pictures. That’s how I see the

country: through my camera lens. I’ve also taken some quilting classes and counted cross stitch.

And DC has so many wonderful museums and attractions, it was hard to decide what to do first.” In her spare time, Mary Kay enjoys traditional music and dance, and plays guitar and Appalachian dulcimer with several local groups (“our motto is will play for food”).
