The death of Sister Patricia McKenna on July 16th 
saddened all of us at St. Joseph's College for she had a 
radiant personality that touched us as she came through 
the halls, greeted us or stopped to chat. 

Sister Patricia was assistant professor of mathematics at 
St. Joseph's since 1978. She had attended the college for a 
year, 1949-50, but left to enter the novitiate of the Sisters of 
St. Joseph. 

Initially, Sister Pat taught at the primary level in Our 
Lady of Perpetual Help and St. Ambrose in Brooklyn and 
at Holy Family in Flushing. After earning a BS degree 
from St. John's University in 1962, Sister Patricia taught 
math in St. Francis Xavier Academy, Bishop Kearney, and 
the Academy of St. Joseph in Brentwood. During this time 
she studied for her master's in teaching science and 
received her MTS from The Catholic University of 
America in Washington, DC. She also received New York 
State Certification in School Administration and Super- 

In 1972 she was appointed principal of St. Pascal 
Baylon High School, St. Albans. From 1975-78, Sister 
Patricia served as personnel director for the Congregation 
of St. Joseph and was a delegate to the chapter from 
1985-1986. She was elected councillor of her congregation 
in 1986. 

Sr. Patricia was very popular with the students at St. 
Joseph's College. When she was on leave with a serious, 
near-fatal illness, the class of 1982 dedicated their 
Footprints to her, which read in part: ". . . this dedication 
wishes her well and hopes the halls of SJC will be a little 
brighter in the near future because of her twinkling Irish 

At the Mass of the Resurrection for Sister Pat held in 
Sacred Heart Chapel in Brentwood, Sr. Clara Santoro, 
CSJ, General Superior and a trustee of St. Joseph's 
College, delivered this brief reflection: 

"The Lord has seen me and to my surprise 
It gave my heart new life, my eyes new sight." 

We all have a need for those who can testify by their lives 
that it is possible to die and possible to rise again. Pat 
McKenna was one of those people! For in significant ways 
during the past years, she experienced resurrection - and 
her love for life was tied to the wonder of that new life and 
new sight. 

The three words on the card we received in Pat's 
memory are: Serenity, Courage, Wisdom. I would like to 

Sister Patricia McKenna 

use Pat's own words to reflect how her profound 
experiences of dying and rising shaped her spirit. 
SERENITY: "I am grateful for the miracle of grace and 
science that has been worked in my behalf and I thank each 
and all of you for the prayerful support you gave me. . . 
Glory to God whose power working in us can do infinitely 
more than we can ask or imagine." 
COURAGE: "Being faced with the realization of my own 
mortality and imprisoned by muscle failure has forced me 
to a simplicity of need and a deep sense of the un- 
complicated. This is confused only by the consciousness I 
have of the profound suffering of those I left behind in 
wheel chairs." 

WISDOM: "My experience was very hard, very painful, 
very broadening, and it leaves me very blessed, truly 
grateful and I hope a better human being." 
Pat McKenna. . . bright. . . vital. . . irreverently witty. . . 
dedicated. . . restless. . . tenacious. . . counselor. . . friend. . . 
May the blessing of our God be upon you 
We bless you in the name of our God 

The following week, Fr. Richard W. Ferris offered a 
Mass for Sr. Patricia McKenna, in the college chapel for 
faculty and students and friends. His homily was a stirring 

I am going to speak to you this morning in a way that I 
hope will be pleasing to Sister Pat. You know, therefore, 
that my remarks will be brief and to the point. If you have 
ever served on a committee with her, you know exactly 
what I am talking about. 

Death is a subject with which we all grapple. There are, 
to be sure, many reasons for this. One of them, however, 
has to be the finality of death. We have so many sayings in 
our language which in one way or another speak of 
tomorrow as being another day. If things do not go well 
today, there is always tomorrow. When we deal with 
death, we know that as far as this world is concerned, there 
is no tomorrow. We find that hard to take. 

The timing of death is another problem for us. It seems 
that it almost never comes at the right time. When a person 
dies very young, we say that he had his whole life ahead of 
him. When someone dies in middle age, as did Sr. Pat, we 
say that she was in her prime, in her most productive years. 
When an old person dies we say that we had her with us for 
so long that we find it hard to imagine what life will be 
like without her. The timing seldom seems right.

Chemists Present Papers 

Maria Sobieraj '82 

Corinne Camper '79 

Each year the Metro Women Chemists, a subsection of 
the American Chemical Society, holds the "Jean Durana 
Mini-symposium" in memory of a young chemist whose 
scientific contributions were cut short by an untimely 
death. The meeting took place in the China Pavillion on 
Joralemon Street in Brooklyn Heights. 

On Monday, September 19, 1988, chemistry-major 
alumnae of St. Joseph's College presented papers at this 
meeting. Corinne Camper 79 presented "Opportunities 
for Chemists in the Pharmaceutical Industry," based on 
her experience at Pfizer, Inc. Maria Sobieraj '82 presented 
Ce+ 3 -> Re+ 3 Energy Transfer in Ba YF5", based on her 
graduate work in chemistry at Polytechinic University. 

Corinne Camper received a graduate teaching assistant- 
ship at the University of Connecticut and earned a 
master's degree in Analytical Chemistry in 1982. Since 
then she has been employed by Pfizer, Inc., Brooklyn, in 
various positions of increasing responsibility. Essentially 
Corinne designs the scientific approach to demonstrate 
that Pfizer's manufacturing processes comply with in- 
ternal specifications as they relate to federal regulations of 
the FDA. Corinne is presently Validation Manager. 

Maria Sobieraj, a summa cum laude graduate, accepted 
a teaching fellowship at Polytechnic Institute of New 
York in a doctoral program in Chemistry. She has just 
successfully defended her doctoral thesis and will receive 
her degree in 1989. Maria hopes to continue in post 
doctoral studies. 

Sr. Patricia McKenna, continued 

Sr. Pat McKenna was an extraordinary woman. In 
saying that I am not attempting to make her larger in 
death than she was in life. That would certainly not please 
her. When I call her extraordinary I do not necessarily 
mean that she did spectacular things. I mean that she did 
the ordinary things extraordinarily well. She was a very 
good Sister of Saint Joseph, serving her Congregation in 
many capacities. She was an excellent teacher, as many of 
her students have testified. She was a very good and loyal 
friend, as many of you know well. On whatever she did, Sr. 
Pat left the imprint of her own humanity and her down to 
earth style. That is what made her someone special. 

Recently I have gone back to read for the third or fourth 
time that magnificent little story, "The Little Prince." 
The author talks about the beauty of the stars and makes 
the following observation. If one looks at the heavens on a 
starry night, at first glance all of the stars look alike. 
If one observes more carefully, however, it becomes clear 
that there are many different types of stars and each of 
them has its own beauty. I think of the star that is Sr. Pat 
McKenna. At first glance, she seemed quite ordinary, not 
very different from the rest of us. If we studied her 
carefully, however, we became convinced that in the 
devoted attention she paid to the ordinary details of daily 
life, she stood out as an extraordinary woman. 

That star is no longer with us. She has moved on to 
another orbit, another galaxy and she shines now more 
brilliantly than ever, illumined as she is by the vision of 
God, the beautific vision. Her death is a sober reminder to 
all of us. The prayers at the graveside caution us that we 
are most certainly to follow her. The only way to a happy 
death is a good prayerful life, a life in union with God on a 
daily basis, a life in which we try to do the ordinary things 
as well as we can. 

We all know that eight years ago, Sr. Pat had a 
frightening brush with death. She recovered in a way that 
might be called miraculous. Shortly after her return, I met 
her one day as we were both leaving the library to go to the 
main building. We joked a bit and then the conversation 
turned serious. I asked her what differences she thought 
her experience would make in her life. She answered 
without hesitation, saying that she would have much less 
time foi nonsense and more time for the important things. 
As I look back over the last eight years, I am convinced that 
she kept her word. What intrigues me, however, is this: the 
important things for Sr. Pat McKenna were the ordinary 
affairs of everyday living. She truly did the ordinary things 
extraordinarily well and in this, we would all do well to 
imitate her. 




In a remarkable tribute to Dr. Ursula Gerty '40, upon 
her retirement as Professor of Social Service in Fordham 
University, more than 350 people gathered for a dinner at 
Fordham Lincoln Center, on June 10th. Faculty members, 
colleagues with whom she had worked in various social 
mia ice organizations, former students and friends met to 
celebrate the culmination of a successful career in social 
work and leaching. 

Professor Harold Robbins, of Fordham's Graduate 
School of Social Services welcomed the guests, and Prof. 
John T. McCarthy, SJ, of Fordham gave the invocation. A 
series of distinguished persons, with whom she had been 
associated rose to express their appreciation and admira- 
tion of Dr. Getty's work: Msgr. John Fagan, Executive 
Director of Little Flower Children's Services, Dr. Mary 
Ann Quaranta, Dean of Fordham Graduate School of 
Social Service and Rev. George J. McMahon, SJ, Vice 
President of Fordham University. The benediction was 
given by Professor Emeritus Nicholas J. Langenfeld of 

Two of those paying tribute were former students of Dr. 
Gerty - two auxiliary bishops of the Diocese of Brooklyn, 
who are charged with responding to the enormous and 
difficult social problems of the Brooklyn Diocese. Bishop 
Rene Valero, Director of the Migration and Refugee 
Office and Bishop Joseph M. Sullivan, Executive Director 
of Brooklyn Catholic Charities, crossed the bridge to 
honor their teacher. 

Ursula Gerty received her bachelor's degree in Social 
Science from St. Joseph's in 19-10. She began her career as a 
case worker for Angel Guardian Home in a work-study 
program, attending Fordham School of Social Studies, 
where she received a master's degree in 1944. 

To help in the war effort, in 1944, Ursula joined the 
Amei it an National Red Cross as a medical soc ial worker 
and was sent to a military hospital in Hawaii, then to 
Guam and Japan. While she was in Japan serving the U.S. 
occupation forces, the Korean war broke out and the 250 
bed hospital where she served was inadequate for the U.S. 
casualties arriving from Korea. Her responsibilities were 
itu leased as faci lilies were expanded to a 1 000 bed hospital 
to meet the increased demand. Ursula also served in the 
Canal Zone where she was supervisor over three hospitals, 
as well as doing case work in one of them. 

When Ursula returned to the U.S., a grant from the 
National Institute for Mental Health enabled her to 
embark on studies at Catholic University where she 

Dr. Ursula Gerty '40 

attended the Catholic School of Social Service full time for 
two years and received the degree of Doctor of Social 
Welfare (DSW) in 1955. She had returned to New York in 
1953 and, while she worked on her dissertation, was 
engaged as a Social Service Consultant for the New York 
Catholic Charities Child Welfare Department, continuing 
in this capacity until 1958. 

She began teaching at Fordham, and was appointed 
Associate Professor in 1958 and full Professor in 1969. At 
Fordham her basic fields were in guiding research in 
Child Welfare and in Social Work Values. She has also 
been a visiting professor at the School of Social Service 
Universidad Boliviana, Columbia, South America. 

Dr. Gerty is president of the Board of Little Flower 
Children's Services, which has recently atracted attention 
for its work with "boarder-babies." She has been a board 
member also of Mercy Home for Children, American Red 
Cross in Greater New York, the Brooklyn Diocese 
Ecumenical Commission and the Committee for UNICEF. 

Dr. Gerty is the author of: The Adaptive Behavior of 
Adolescent Children Whose Mothers are Schizophrenic, 
Washington D.C. Catholic University of America Press, 
and Sisters in Social Work, Catholic Charities Revue, as 
well as several unpublished studies. 

She has been honored with the Alumni Award of 
Fordham Graduate School of Social Service, and with the 
Fordham University Bene Merenti medal given to out- 
standing faculty members. Dr. Gerty was cited as showing 
"a generous spirit, an unstinting and conscientious 
dedication to all those whose lives she touches." 

In her retirement she still teaches a course at Fordham 
and plans to lake some onuses "for fun." She hopes to 
write up for publication someol her research projects. Her 
full life, she savs, "would not have happened had I not 
attended St. Joseph's. I am truly grateful foi those foul

Dr. Geraldine Keating Powell '60 

Geraldine Keating Powell attended St. Joseph's from 
1956 to 1959. She transferred, in her senior year, to Johns 
Hopkins University as one of three women among fifteen 
students selected for a special program leading to medical 
school. She obtained her BA in 1960 and her MD in 1964 
from Johns Hopkins. While studying there, she married 
Gerald F. Powell, a Pediatric resident, and continued at 
Johns Hopkins as an intern in the Department of 

Following her Pediatric residency at Duke University, 
Geraldine developed a strong interest in gastroenterology, 
at that time a fairly new and little known specialty. She 
obtained two one year post-doctoral research fellowships 
at Duke University and was an instructor in pediatrics 
there. In 1969 she accepted an assistant professorship at 
the University of Texas, Department of Pediatrics, Division 
of Gastroenterology, and in 1975 became an associate 

Many readers of Alumnagram will recognize that the 
area to which Dr. Powell has directed most of her medical 
career and research activities is an area of tremendous 
concern to mothers of infants and young children - 
feeding and digestion. The absorption of food by infants 
and the effects of food and chemicals on the system have 
been the subject of numerous studies whose results Dr. 
Powell and her colleagues have published in professional 
journals of Pediatrics and Gastroenterology. 

Dr. Powell has been active in professional and scientific 
societies and has been honored with responsibilities in 
directing them. In 1980 she was chairman of a joint session 
of several societies on Gastroenterology and Nutrition; in 
1979 she was coordinating chairman for Gastroenterology 
and Nutrition sessions of the Society for Pediatric Research. 
In May 1980 she was a speaker at a symposium on the 
Immunological Basis of Gastrointestinal Disease State, 
held by the North American Society for Pediatric Gastro- 
enterology. This society whose membership includes all 
Pediatric gastroenterologists from the United States and 
Canada, elected her President for 1981-82. 





Dr. Powell lives in Galveston, Texas - but does not stay 
there. She is frequently invited to give talks at professional 
meetings. Most recently she travelled to Marienhamm, 
Auland (an island in the Baltic between Stockholm and 
Helsinki) togivea talk to the joint meeting of the Swedish 
Pediatric Society and the Finnish Pediatric Society on the 
subject of "Gastrointestinal Food Allergy in Infants and 
Children." Then, after a brief stop at home, she went to 
Chicago to a meeting of the American Association for the 
Study of Liver Disease. 

When Geraldine goes "back to work", she is embroiled, 
she says, in the constant problems and negotiations of 
patient care in a teaching hospital. Not confined to the 
lecture platform and the lab, she gets down to real cases. 
She is involved both directly and indirectly in the care of 
patients in the Pediatric Gastrological Service of the Child 
Health Center of the University of Texas. She acts as 
consultant to the pediatric wards, the clinics, the neonatal 
nursery and family practice. 

Her lecture responsibilities include students in all years, 
residents in pediatrics and those in continuing medical 
education. She participates as a lecturer in the teaching 
faculty of other departments, lectures to the house staff, 
and, as a guest speaker, to physicians in practice, on 
Pediatric Gastroenterology. 

Dr. Powell takes pride in her investigation of the 
mechanics of food protein intolerance and is well known 
for her work on gastrointestinal food allergies. Her 
present research interest includes studies of food absorption 
in abnormalities such as neonatal jaundice, cystic fibrosis 
and enterocolitis. Geraldine's older son, Edward, just 
graduated from Trinity University in San Antonio; her 
younger son, Michael is a guitar major at Berklee College 
of Music in Boston. 

Eleanor McLoughlin 


As a student at St. Saviour's High School in Brooklyn, 
Emily Sabbagh enjoyed two favorite subjects, art and 
chemistry. She loved them both and thought she could 
make a career of either one - but which should she choose? 

On graduating from high school, Emily received a 
Medaille scholarship to St. Joseph's College and was 
admitted in 1976. She chose Chemistry as her major and 
cites Sr. St. Francis and Sr. Mary Maier as excellent 
professors. In 1980, she graduated Cum Laude and with 
Departmental Honors. Continuing her studies in City 
College of New York, she received a Master's degree in 
Biochemistry in 1982. While in the Master's program, 
Emily was first author of a paper published in the Journal 
of Biological Chemistry, June 1985, Alpha-Mercapto 
Probionic Acid - A Potent Inhibitor of Beta Oxidation in 
Rat Heart Mitochondria. 

Emily's real interest, however, had turned from labora- 
tory research to the health professions. In dentistry she felt 
she could combine her scientific knowledge and expertise 
with her artist's feeling for form and shape, as well as her 
sympathy for patients as persons. She was accepted into 
the Columbia University School of Dental and Oral 
Surgery, and there developed a strong attraction to the 
sub-specialty of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. 

In her second and third year Emily felt the need to 
supplement classroom theory and laboratory practice by 
coming in contact with real cases. Using her Christmas 
and Easter vacations, her summer and weekends, she spent 
a total of six months in externship. One six-week term was 
at Harlem Hospital as an extern learning Oral and 
Maxillofacial surgery; another at the University of 
California in Los Angeles in the Department of Oral and 
Maxillofacial Surgery. She spent seven weeks at the Royal 
Infirmary in Edinburgh, Scotland, in Oral and Maxillo- 
facial Surgery. At the Columbia University Department of 

Emily Sabbagh, DDS '8 

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, she assisted in reconstruc- 
tive surgery and in other oral and maxillofacial procedures 
for about six weeks. 

Emily received her degree in Doctor of Dental Surgery 
from Columbia in May 1987, graduating with awards 
from The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial 
Surgeons, and the Academy of Oral Medicine for out- 
standing achievement. As she dealt with applications for 
residency training she was able, when interviewed, to 
speak from her actual experience during the externships. 
Dr. Sabbagh is now in a combined M.D. and Oral and 
Maxillofacial Surgery Residency Training Program at the 
University of Pennsylvania. She will receive her medical 
degree in 1990 - in two years rather than four because she 
was given credit for two years in Columbfa. In 1993, she 
will be a Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon. 

During her two years in medical school, Emily will 
study all other phases of medicine for her medical degree. 
At present, she is in the Alleghany General Hospital in 
Pittsburgh for three months doing Obstetrics and Gyne- 
cology. She finds that Pittsburgh is a clean and pleasing 
city, situated as it is on the confluence of three rivers. 

Dr. Sabbagh recently purchased a rowhouse in the 
Manayunk section of Philadelphia. She loves New York, 
however, and hopes eventually to return. Her mother still 
lives in Brooklyn, in the Bay Ridge section. Her brother, 
John A., who received his degree from St. John's Law 
School in 1988, and his wife also live in Brooklyn. 

Getting Together in Connecticut 

In March of 1988, Eleanore Kennedy '35, who moved to 
Heritage Village, Connecticut, became aware that four 
other graduates of St. Joseph's, Ann Jones Gordon '36, 
Kathleen Holland Janson '36, Dorothea O'Neill Schmidt 
'36, and Jean O'Reilly Stone '38, also lived in the village. 

Eleanore arranged a luncheon at a local restaurant. 
They met again in June, September and November and 
plan to "keep this going." Since their first meeting other 
SJC Connecticut Yankees joined them for one or more of 
the luncheons: Tina Carbonara '40 of Brookfield, Madeline 

Kendall Friel '32 of Newton, Sister Marie Louise Hubert 
'36 of New Haven, Isabelle Hession Lonegan '37 of 
Woodbury, Kathleen Mulrooney McDermott '30 of 
Bethlehem, Muriel McMahon Mulvey '36 of Woodbury 
and Virginia Beatty Trum '36, from Ramsey, New Jersey. 
They take turns at making the arrangements and love 
every minute of it -"the conversation is non-stop!" Other 
SCJgradsin the area who would like to join the group can 
get in touch with Eleanore at 4470 Heritage Village, 
Southbury 06488. 


At an early age Schery Mai kee-Sullivan could draw. She 
loved her school art classes and even then her focus was to 
develop her talent. After graduation from St. Joseph's 
College in 1972, Schery enrolled in the Creative Arts 
Master's Program at New York University where she 
studied painting with Robert Kaupelis. 

A strong inclination toward the physical expression of 
energy also directed her to study dance with June Lewis, 
the gifted choreographer, dancer and teacher. Schery was 
asked to join the company in 1980 and was invited to teach 
with the company in 1984. She is constantly inspired in 
dance and believes art and dance are intrinsically connected. 
The search of kinetics, sensuality and infinite dimension 
of color, coupled with the demand of changing shape, 
space, weight and form is the springboard of her work. 

Schery Markee-Sullivan's paintings have been shown in 
galleries at Hundred Acre Wood and the Henry Hicks 
Gallery, both in Brooklyn Heights, at the Polizzi Gallery 
in Bay Ridge and Scribbles in Park Slope. She has had 
shows in the Amityville Gallery and Gallery South in 
Wantagh and the Jed Gallery at Penn Plaza. In Wantagh 
Public Library she has had two one-woman shows and has 
participated in numerous group shows including the 
Preservation Grounds at Emeric and The Seventh Avenue 
Show in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Currently, her paintings 
may be seen in the Avant Polizzi Gallery in Greenwich 
Village, the Owl 57 Gallery in Woodmere and in Garden 
City Galleries, Ltd., where a very good selection of floral 
paintings can be found. A painting from her American 
Landscape series was recently accepted in the 1986 Juried 
Show of The Fine Arts Museum of Long Island. 

Schery 's hand painted greeting cards have been carried 
all over New York City and nationally by such well known 
firms as Bergdorf Goodman, Hallmark, Greetings, Harris 
Graphics, and Star Magic. 

Since 1975, Schery has explored various mediums 
including oils, acrylics, collage, pen and ink, pastel, 
pencil and watercolors, as can be seen through her 
"Mother and Child" theme. Her "Man/Woman" series 
was begun in 1983 and continues to develop. She is now 
working on her "Yellow Eyes" series which includes 
"Lifeline" and "Kites of Blood." 

Schery has an intense energy drive. She strives to remain 
faithful to her own instinct for color, and constantly to 
explore the open ended environment to which every sense, 
sensation and sensibility can lead her. 

Schery Markee of the Class of '72 married James 
Sullivan, a graduate of St. Francis College, in 1973. Their 
first son was born in 1985. They were blessed with Adam 
in 1987 but lost him two days after he was born, to 
hypoplastic left heart syndrome. They are looking forward 
to the birth of their third child shortly.

With Aspira 

Cruz Sanchez Reyez '84GS 

When Cruz Sanchez Reyez started a full-time job with 
the General Studies Division at St. Joseph's College in 
1980, she also started studies in the General Studies 
Community Health Program, attending classes after work 
and on Saturdays. It took a long time, but a dream came 
true when, on June 7, 1984, she stepped forward to receive 
her bachelor of science degree in Community Health and a 
Certificate of Child Care Services. 

Cruz' first job was with St. Joseph's Children's Services, 
as a social worker in a group home in Williamsburg. In 
1985, she went to work for Aspira, an Hispanic group that 
she very much admired, as an educational counselor. In a 
year and a half, she was promoted to Director of the Youth 
Leadership Development Program. She is in charge of 21 
youth clubs in New York City. 

A non-profit organization, Aspira aims to motivate 
Hispanic youth, to help them to improve their self-esteem, 

to develop leadership, and to urge them to continue their 
education into college. Aspira has three Drop-Out 
Programs in the city that work to help children overcome 
their apathy and indifference towards schooling. They 
graphically explain the need of an education and provide 
support and encouragement as needed. Children learn 
about their cultural heritage and background and take 
pride in it. They participate in group activities and receive 
individual counseling. Counselors work with high school 
students and their parents. If necessary they go to the home 
and talk with the entire family. Parents come to a better 
understanding of their children's potential. The child 
begins to move upward. 

Aspira groups meet after school and on Saturdays and 
Sundays. They have cultural events such as music, 
dancing, plays, special festivals, games and sports. They 
take trips to museums and libraries and the seniors and 
juniors visit colleges. 

Children are helped to develop study skills, improve 
their marks and do well enough in school to apply for 
college admissions. Aspira helps them with these appli- 
cations and will even assist in tuition payments. As they 
work with the students, social workers tell them that they 
are held accountable for their own and each other's 
behavior. They are taught responsibility for their 
community and they serve the elderly in nursing homes, 
the homebound, children's groups etc. 

Cruz Reyez loves her job and is so involved in it that she 
has little time for anything else. However she managed to 
continue her studies after graduation from St. Joseph's. 
Although working full time, Cruz earned a master's 
degree in Public Administration with a concentration in 
Human Resources from Long Island University in June

Rita Paolucci Vassallo V 

"I've done everything I've wanted to do, including 
selling real estate, doing family therapy and getting a 
Chemical Awareness Specialist degree. For years I sang 
and danced every major role in musical comedies," writes 
Rita Paolucci Vassallo from her home in Minneapolis to 
class agent, Ann Clancy. 

"Just want you to know," she continues, "I have always 
read the Alumnagram everywhere we lived - seven moves 
so far - and really appreciated your work. It's very snowy 
today so I take this time to say how wonderful it is to read 
how all are doing. Helen Connell '50, Dot Maguire Green 
and Pat Dennen Dunne '52 and I visit whenever I return to 
the East and that's fun!" 

"Mostly I have my health, my loving family (now that 
parents and kids have all grown up) nearby and four 
beautiful grandchildren with one on the way. . . It's been 
fun, with some scary parenting years (60's '70's) but, 
looking back, I grew more from those years and pain and 

things go well now. We're a unique breed and we've 
survived. God is Good." 

The Vassallo family moved back to Minneapolis in 1973 
so that Rita could play her role at Chanhassen Dinner 
Theater. She has been a professional TV and stage actress 
since 1973 and also does radio and TV commercials, 
industrial films, modeling and stagework - mostly in 
musical comedy - Garrison Keillor show etc. . . Rita has 
played Rose in "Gypsy", Mother Abbess in "The Sound of 
Music", Goldie in "Fiddler on the Roof", and Dolly, in 
"Hello Dolly", to name a few of her roles. Among the 
many TV commercials, you may have seen her on 3M - 
Copier, General Mills, Mr. Donut (National) and 
Montgomery Ward. She has been in Industrial Slide Films 
for General Motors, Canada, Royal Bank of Canada, 
Control Data, General Mills and many more. 

Rita's husband, Vincent, to whom she has been married 
for 36 years, retired from his position as a store manager of 
a drug chain and is now a chef and caterer in Minneapolis. 
Loves it! He cooks and shops for the family, too! All seven 
children live in Minneapolis. Vin, Jr. is married, has a 
daughter Kate, 8 years old, and another on the way. 
Rosemarie married a Minneapolis policeman. Their son, 
Michael is 9. Robert has two girls, Kristin, 5 and Jamie 2. 
Joan has been workng in Control Data ten years. Richard 
is a roofer in Rob's company. Mary is a secretary and is at 
Control Data on weekends. Rita's youngest, Patricia, is a 
Counseling Clinical Secretary. In January, Patti will 
work and attend the University of Maryland where she 
will live with Rita's brother, a doctor. 

The Vassallos have travelled up north, out west and to 
Long Island where they visit Vin's brother in North 
Babylon, and to Maryland where they visit Rita's brother, 
who has twelve children. Rita moves to Los Angeles, 
California, in January toact.and Vin will follow later on. 
"Look for me on the tube!!" 

Formal Installation 

On December 15, 1988, Adele Vocel '65 was formally 
installed as Principal of Franklin Delano Roosevelt High 
School in Brooklyn. In her address that evening Adele 
recalled memories of those who helped her along the way. 
She recalled Phyllis Capotosto Johnson '55 who introduced 
her to St. Joseph's College and Sister John Baptist for 
being "such a good teacher." She remembered Sister John 
Raymond, who provided budding teachers with the skills 
to meet their responsibilities in a loving and caring way. 
"You must be doing something right," she said, "because 
last year, of the 18 women high school principals in New 
York City, 5 of them were your students." She cited Eileen 
Guerra Petruzillo, her teacher and mentor, and Sister 
Mary Beatrice who not only taught anatomy, genetics, 
physiology and all the other - ologies but taught the 
beauty of life and our responsibility to enrich the lives of 

At St. Joseph's College, Adele majored in mathematics 
and took biology as a minor. After graduation, she taught 
both math and biology as well as general science at Bryant 
High School. At the same time, she studied at New York 
University and received a master's degree in Science 
Education in 1972 and is now nearing completion of her 
doctorate in Education Administration. Adele served as 
Assistant Principal in Bryant High School and in 1986 


Adele Vocel '59 

became Assistant Principal of Thomas Jefferson High. In 
1987, she was made Principal of Franklin D. Roosevelt 
High School. 

Believing that the success of a principal is measured by 
the degree to which all members of the school work 
together, Adele encourages students and faculty to make 
suggestions. The way to get things done is to involve 
people in the decision-making process, she says. 

Praising former FDR principal, Alan Irgang, Adele 
Vocel adds that her goal is to continue the family 
atmosphere that Mr. Irgang established and continue 
integration of extra-curricular activities with the academic 
life of the school. 

Barges & Chinese Antiq ues Area Director 

Vera Tuozzo Esposito '77S 

Nine years ago, Vera Tuozzo Esposito assumed 
responsibility and management of the family owned 
business, Tony's Barge Service, in Holbrook, New York. 
Tony's Barge Service picks up and transports garbage to 
and from Fire Island Pines, Cherry Grove, Seaview Ocean 
Bay Park, Fair Harbor and various other communities on 
Fire Island. Tony's also carries trucks such as cement, 
backhoes, telephone and lighting company heavy equip- 
ment and trucks, servicing all of Fire Island. All this has 
developed her good rapport with hundreds of customers 
and suppliers. 

In 1987, Vera created another business and opened a 
warehouse outlet of imported Chinese porcelains. Before 
opening United Phoenix Warehouse Outlet, Vera studied 
Chinese History and Art, particularly noting the works of 
art and designs of the various dynasties. She went to the 
Chinese Trade Commission to review the best sources of 
Chinese merchandise, such as silk carpets, artwork, porce- 
lains, cloisonne, furniture, silk embroideries, etc. that she 
wished to purchase. 

When visiting United Phoenix, not only can you 
purchase the item you choose, but can learn about the 
history and making of the objects of art. 

Vera Esposito completed her studies - after a nine year 
journey - and earned a bachelor's degree in Human 
Relations from St. Joseph's College, in 1977. She also 
acquired life-experience credits from St. Joe's during her 
study years. 

Vera and her husband, Neil, live in Bayport. Neil's 
accounting firm, Joseph Zak 2c Company is in Patchogue. 
He is also Vice President of Brookhaven Memorial 
Hospital. They have three children, Tom. Tina and Tara 
Fries and one granddaughter, Alexandra. 

Lori Locurto Tolento '81 SGS 

"Give 100% plus" is the way Lori Tolento lives her life 
in all areas. Lori moved to Suffolk County in 1975 as a 
young mother and wife with a commitment to her family 
but also with a realization of the need to fulfill her desire 
for further study. While working part time as a nurse, Lori 
attended St. Joseph's College and graduated in 1981 with 
senior honors and with the distinguished graduate award. 
Skillfully balancing all of the different facets of her life, 
Lori had managed to accomplish earning a Bachelor's 
Degree with the love and respect of her family and friends. 

Lori loves academia, so naturally she applied to graduate 
school at C.W. Post and graduated in two years while 
working full time. She earned a Master's in Public 
Administration with a major in Health Care Administra- 
tion and a minor in Gerontology. While in graduate 
school, Lori became an honorary member of Pi Alpha, the 
national honor society for Public Affairs & Administration. 
In order to be a member, you have to be above the Dean's

Lori's vitality and energy led her along an upward path 
in her career. She had been the Director of Nursing for 
eight years and is currently the Area Director for Suffolk, 
Nassau, Queens and Westchester for Medical Personnel 
Pool, an international home nursing and staffing sen ices 
company. Lori is on the move constantly to supervise the 
offices under her management. The total operation - 
administrative, sales, personnel and financial - is under 
her direction. 

Simultaneously working full time in her career, Lori is 
dedicated to International Coma Recovery Institute, 
teaches a Health Administration course at St. Joseph's 
College, Suffolk Campus, and has a full family life. Lori is 
certified by the American Nursing Association in Geron- 
tology, as a Gerontological nurse. Her biography,

New Horizons Campaign 

Response of Alumni 

The Alumni Association responded immediately to St. 
Joseph's College New Horizons Campaign by pledging to 
raise $1,000,00. Individual pledges already received 
indicate the enthusiasm of the alumni ae and their pride 
in St. Joseph's as it continues to meet the needs of an 
increasing enrollment amid the changes of an ever- 
evolving society. 

St. Joseph's College has spanned the years from before 
World War I to the space age. It has grown from an 
intimate group of twelve young women and has expanded 
from a purely academic curriculum to a wide variety of 

The First Four Years 

On October 2, 1916, a time when few women had the 
opportunity to go to college, twelve young pioneers began 
studies at 286 Washington Avenue in Brooklyn. The 
president of the college, Rev. Thomas E. Molloy, and 
faculty challenged these students to academic excellence, 
independent thinking and integrity of action. Though 
awed by the gravity of their responsibility, this small class 
realized the unique privilege of establishing college 
precedents. Before the end of the first two semesters the 
"twelve apostles" as Father Molloy called them, had 
managed to set a lofty precedent in scholarship and had 
established an Undergraduate Association, a Literary 
Society and Le Cercle Moliere, organized by the French 

On registration day the following September, fifteen 
new students came, a pledge of future prosperity. Early in 
November a Dramatic Society was formed which, in 
December, presented two humorous sketches at Queen of 
All Saints Auditorium. A College Orchestra consisting of 
four violins, four mandolins, three banjos and a piano 
accompanist made rapid strides. With a smaller Glee 
Club, they played and sang at lectures, assemblies and 
Literary teas. April 1917 marked the entrance of the 
United States into World War I. All twenty-seven students 
immediately joined the Red Cross. They also undertook to 
raise money to purchase Liberty Bonds in the name of the 

These energetic sophomores and freshmen were loo 
much for the little grey building on Washington Avenue. 
Thanks to the generosity of the people of Brooklyn and to 
some special friends of the college, St. Joseph's opened in 
the fall of 1918 in the 245 building on Clinton Avenue. 
The faculty increased to twenty members. Now Juniors, 
the twelve welcomed eleven new students as their Freshmen 
sisters. Junior year studies required more earnest applica- 
tion than ever, yet the students continued fund-raising 
events to raise money for the United War Drive. 

With the incoming class of 1919, enrollment reached 
sixty-two. Two new members joined the twelve in senior 
year, Mae Moore, who travelled from the Bronx every day, 
and Amalia Simonetti, from East New York. The Seniors 
started work on their year book which they called Foot- 
prints - a book of 92 pages filled with memories of their 
forty years, with many photographs and sketches. It was 
early in 1920 that St. Joseph's College Basketball team 
finally played other college teams; Adelphi, Manhattan- 
ville and Mt. St. Mary's. They won the third game. 

To express in more than words, their appreciation for 
the efforts made in their behalf, the class of 1920 gave a 

dinner for the college president, Rt. Reverend Bishop 
Charles E. McDonnell, and all the faculty. At last came 
graduation day for the class of 1920 and they left St. 
Joseph's with the "wonderful feeling of a task well done." 

Steady Growth 

Throughout the twenties there was a steady growth in 
enrollment and an increase in faculty. By 1930 the Alumni 
Association had 360 members and the enrollment at the 
college was 246. In the early thirties, Father William T. 
Dillon, dean of the college, called for a program to study 
child development and envisioned a laboratory pre-school 
setting to provide actual experiences for students of Child 
Study. Sr. Margaret Louise Shea implemented this program 
and led St. Joseph's to preeminence in the field of Child 
Study education. 

Need for Expansion 

The need to expand the Brooklyn campus became 
evident to the next college president, Sr. Vincent Therese 
Tuohy, who launched St. Joseph's first capital funds 
campaign in 1963. How many of you alumnae lived 
through the construction of McEntegart Hall, which 
opened in February 1965? Will you ever forget the size of 
the boulders that were unearthed? Called on to help 
finance this project, alumnae gave overwhelming support. 

Soon afterwards, construction began for a modern 
educational facility for the Child Study Program. The 
Dillon Child Study Center, a two-story building, was 
opened in 1968. Again, alumni support was generous. 

A Period of Turbulence 

The presidency of Sr. George Aquin O'Connor began in 
1 969 and was marked by a period of turbulence and radical 
changes. It was a critical period for higher education. 
Nevertheless Sister George, enlisting the help of the Board 
of Trustees, faculty, administrators and business com- 
munity, expanded our "small but wiry" (to use her words) 
college's mission of excellence and service in a number of 

- The charter was changed to make the college co- 

- The Suffolk campus was established in Brentwood. 

- A Division of General Studies was created to meet the 
needs of adults of diverse backgrounds. 

- Sister Virginia Therese Callahan was appointed as Vice 
President with a mandate to develop the Suffolk Campus. 

- The Suffolk Campus was relocated to a 27 acre site on 
Great Patchogue Lake. 

- Programs in business and health care were implemented 
to provide contemporary career preparations. 

This brings us up to date on the growth of our college. 
Throughout its history, St. Joseph's College has main- 
tained its core requirements, exposing each student to a 
diverse academic program so that with some understanding 
of all major areas of knowledge, he/she will be able to 
make an informed career choice. 

In its eary years the phenomenal progress of St. Joseph's 
College came about without heavy contributions from 
wealthy patrons, foundations or corporations, but rather 
from the contributed services of a dedicated faculty, 
religious and lay, and a small but enthusiastic student 
body and loyal alumni/ae. With the continuing generous 
alumni/ae support, the college looks forward to the 
attainment of the goals of the New Horizons Campaign.

Agnes McShane Madden's death in October was a shock. Hal and Marita 
Ryan Rockefeller were at the wake and funeral Mass, as Agnes lived only 
five miles from them. They were always close to one another. Please 
remember Agnes and her loved ones in your prayers. Of the thirteen

The winter blahs came early this year so there was little response to the call 
for news. Virginia Sorley, daughter of Margaret Sullivan Fitzgerald, reports 
that her mother is doing well at Fairhaven, VA. In spite of seriously 
impaired sight, she rides around in her wheel chair. One of her greatest 
pleasures is receiving news via Alumnagram which evokes memories of 
happy days at SJC. Mary Manning Doherty also from Virginia, was in New 
York this summer to visit her brother Phil and family to celebrate the Phil 
Manning's wedding anniversary. Mary's recently widowed daughter. 
Eileen, accompanied her. Mary looks forward to the Spring wedding of 
Phil's daughter who is following the family tradition of studying law. Hope 
to see Mary then. Virginia Sorley is planning to visit Mary Manning soon, 
on a sentimental journey, for it was at Mary's home that Margaret Sullivan 
met Al Mezey, her first husband, who became Virginia's father. Marie 
Kelley Smith enjoyed the fallen leaves this year, but did not have to rake 
them. Marie excerises at a very active Fitness Club where she frequently 
swims, and walks a mile around the track every day. She relaxes with her 
cronies at the Kisco Club, enjoying the Golden Years Mary Keller Lawler 
now has ten great-grandchildren which will increase by three by publication 
time. Besides attending christenings, birthdays, graduations, and weddings, 
Mary is involved in parish activities as well as diocesan organizations. Yet 
she was able to spend a week at Cape Cod, travel to the Canadian 
Northwest, and visit Washington DC on August 15th to attend the rites at 
the Cathedral closing the Marian Year. John and Agnes Kelly Bryan are 
active in their church in Matawan, NJ. as well as with travel and family. 
Agnes' oldest granddaughter is on the teaching staff of Villanova where 
another granddaughter is a senior. Jeannette Farrell Amery doesn't travel. 
She stayed put at her beach house all summer where her family visited 
frequently. Her son. Ted, on weekly visits gave her an education in the 
history and art of military insignia. He is a serious collector specializing in 
airborne pocket patches, flashes and ovals, and contributes to the 
magazines. Chute and Dagger, and The Trading Post. He is collaborating 
in publishing a book dealing with Viet Nam made military patches. Colonel 
(ret.) Annette Nolan '44 who is interested in Ted's project, visited Jeannette 
at the beach house this summer and brought some additions for the 
collection from her own insignia She also presented Ted with some 
patches worn by General John Corley, her cousin, who was known as the 
hero of the Battle of the Bulge and the most decorated soldier of World War 
II. Aren't alumnae wonderful! All this and the cool ocean breezes "made" 
the summer The only member of '28 to attend Alumni Day was Jeannette. 
The classes were fun and the day most enjoyable. Particularly memorable 
was the attitude of the younger alumnae who marvelled that the "old 
ladies" from '26, '27 and '28 could still think, articulate and climb to the 
classes on the third floor!

As you know our loved and loyal classmate, Margaret Doyle Dunderman, 
was called to her eternal reward Our sympathy goes out to her wonderful 
family. Her daughter-in-law and her grandson read the scriptural passages 
at her beautiful Mass. We sent a Spiritual.enrollment from the class and here 
is a quote from her daughter, Cathie, "Many of her fondest memories were 
of her dear friends at St. Joseph's. The bond you all kept was truly special " 
By the way the address mistake in the college announcement was mine - 1

Joseph's College - and time for another big celebration together Get in 
touch with your friends and start thinking about meeting together at the 
Spring Luncheon. April 8th, 1989. We will be honored as an anniversary

unknown. If you have any clue as to where they may have moved, let us (or

Fall luncheon brought twelve of us together at the Arbor Inn, in October. 
The group included Gen Archipoli Kelly, Mildred Brogan Walsh, Sarah 
Crowley, Mary Oalton Oberle, Isabelle Donohue Fitzgerald, Marda Doyle 
Ticho, Mary Golden Meehan, Zita Hawkins Stoddart, Vera McNally, 
Margaret Reiliy Parker, Clare Stanton Sweeney and Kay Wheeler Smith. 
We were particularly glad to have Kay Smith with us. She had not been able 
to join us for the past few years Kathleen Mulrooney McDermott had just 
spent a strenuous and exhausting week in New York, and was too tired to 
make another trip from Connecticut. We do appreciate Kathleen's frequent 
notes to share news with us. Dot Hanagan Griffin had a previous 
engagement, but reported she had just returned from a trip along the Gulf 
coast, and on her travels she had met a friend of Margaret Parker from 
Point Lookout Ethne O'Leary Manz who recently lost her husband, is at 
present living with her son and his family in Rockville Centre. Her plans are 
indefinite. Marion Toshack was very disappointed that she missed the 
luncheon. She had made her reservation and travel arrangements, only to 
have to cancel out at the last minute. We were very sorry to hear that Sister 
Ruth Wlllmann had fallen and broken her hip. She has recovered nicely 
and is now back in the convent in Rosyln Bernadette Hughes Carroll sent a 
delightful letter with her regards. She is well and very involved in 
community affairs. Unfortunately an important meeting was scheduled for 
the same day as the class luncheon. As of now construction, has not begun 
on the life-care community she hopes to move into, and she is reconciled 
to being in her condo for another two years. As you notice nearly all of our 
contacts are within the tri-state area. We wonder about those of you who 
are living elsewhere. Won't you please write and let us know how you and 
your families are doing? Margaret Reiliy Parker sent us Mary Miner 
O'Halloran's address in Merritt Island. Florida. Mary looks good and would 
love to be as active as she always was. but loses her breath. William is not 
that well either and they are happy to be in a place that serves the meals 
you want and with medical help within the reach of a button. They have an 
apartment with their own furniture. Margaret writes that she is very grateful 
that she and Carroll have had very good health. They will keep travelling 
"as long as we can climb on and off a bus!" Around December first they will 
leave for Florida and as usual will share the driving. You all remember our 
stunning "gym" teacher, Mary Close. In February she sent a donation to 
the Alumni Association in memory of Peg Cosgrovewith whom she kept in 
touch over the years. She writes that she "spent four happy years at St. 
Joseph's from 1933 to 1937. as the Physical Education Instructor." Mary 
lives in Niantic, Connecticut.

The St. Joseph's connection is fantaastic! Marie O'Connor has added to 
her activities visits to Eileen Schilling Bassler's '60 recently opened 
Meadowflower Nursery School in Fair Haven. Eileen's husband, William, 
was recently appointed a New Jersey judge and that was the occasion of a 
dinner celebration Mary Dolan '33 was a recent correspondent to ask a 
New Jersey question in which Dorothea Sommer '36 was interested. 
Bernadette Hughes Carroll '30 and Marie write to each other concerning 
their future retirement homes neither of which ahs been completed as yet. 
(But the pipes are laid!) Both are looking forward with great enthusiasm to 
halcyon days. Mary Flanagan Rigaut and Marie O'Connor drove to the 
Downtown Athletic Club for the Autumn Luncheon. They also try to fit into 
Mary's busy schedule, a weekly brunch. Incidentally, Marie was the sole 
member of '31 to attend the luncheon but enjoyed meeting her former 
fellow-travellers, particularly Kay Waters '29 her table companion. Gen 
Oliver Longley who lives in Highland Beach Fl. enjoys the fact that two 
fellow-alumnae are members of her condo - Violet Castana Falcone '42 

and Mary McVeigh Williams '43 Marie Rickaby Blake's daughter, Margo. 
writes that her mother has long been ill Please include her in your prayers.

The high spot for '32 this year was the delightful reunion in September at 
Helen Coughlan Worthley's home in Glen Cove. A Mass for deceased 
members was celebrated by Rev. Nicholas Figliola. Father's homily about 
forgiving and gently forgetting spoke to all our hearts. After the liturgy, 
everyone enjoyed a beautiful luncheon Attending were Kathlyn Ansbro 
Wurts, Marie Furey Boyce, Katherine Kelly Carlin, Anne McCormack 
Fennessy, Gertrude Unser, Mary Whelan Phelan, Mary White Kearney and 
Gladys Worthley. We had notes and calls from a number of '32s who were 
unable to be present - from Christine Barton, Anne Burns Meehan, Helen 
Curran Flynn, Edna Dawkins McDonald, Frances Dieckert Rebele, Kathryn 
Frey Lynch, Mildred Hines Ryan, Madeline Kendall Friel, Margaret Kenny, 
Mildred Martin Donnelly, Winifred McMahon and Irene Parker Parks - all 
with a word of cheer in coping with life's travails. Edna Dawkins McDonald, 
Anne McCormack Fennessy, Mary Whelan Phelan and Buddy found the 
Alumni Day program on October 22nd very rewarding Many of our 
classmate's children are doing exciting things' One especially interesting 
achievement is that of Mildred Hines Ryan's daughter, Valerie Bells, an 
attorney. She is assigned by the US Department of Justice as chief legal 
consultant on the case of the Japanese internments during World War II. 
We offer heartfelt sympathy to Claire Smith whose sister was fatally injured 
in an automobile accident near her Florida home. Please remember both in 
your prayers. It is very hard for me to write about Josephine McKeon 
Broad's death. I do appreciate the sympathy notes and calls to me, since 
many of you understood my loss. Jo and I met on the very first day at St 
Joseph's and through the years we remained steadfast friends who shared 
our lives with joyful devotion. Jo had two wonderfully caring sisters and 
many loving cousins including the Dooling sisters. St. Joseph's alumnae. 
She had a multitude of friends, classmates, colleagues, associates in 
volunteer work, neighbors and had a special interest in each and added a 
happy dimension to their lives. Ever loyal to St. Joseph's College, she 
never missed a reunion and regularly kept in touch with friends from 
college. Jo served as president of the Alumni Association from 1975-1977. 
Several classmates were present at her funeral Mass. Although she had a 
number of physical problems over the years. Jo brushed them aside as 
minor, temporary inconveniences. She brought light and love to many.

Although a few of our regulars could not attend, eleven of the Long 
Islanders met for our semi-annual lunch at La Grange on October 24th 
-Rita Bopp Mahoney, Jerrie Young Murphy, Mildred Donohue Fltzpatrick, 
Peggy Clarke Keating, Liz Schaefer Dalton, Joan Glambalvo Palazzo, Rita 
Pollock Murphy, Barbara Owens Miller, Jo Ford Scanlon, Marie McGrath 
Browne, and Mary Dolan. We were fascinated by Bobbie Miller's description 
of a project of the Columbiettes - assembling "Funny Alphabet" books for 
blind and sight-impaired children. The left-hand page has a letter in Braille 
and a raised conventional version of the same letter. The right hand page 
has attached to it a small article, the name of which starts with the same 
letter. For example, a small apron is used for A The printing, making of 
illustrative articles, and assembly of the books is part of the Three 
Dimensional Transcription program This is only one of Bobbie's activities. 
She has managed to find time and energy to spend fourteen days in July on 
an Alaskan land and cruise trip; in August she was a delegate to the 
Supreme Convention of the Columbiettes held in New Jersey, and in 
September she was on a golf weekend with the Bud's Golf Club at 
Mountain Maid Inn in Marshall's Creek. Pennsylvania. Joan Glambalvo 
Palazzo and Frank will spend the winter in Florida and will return north in 
April. In May. her grandson, Tom, will graduate from Boston College; in 
June, granddaughter Jennifer will graduate from Massapequa High 
School and another granddaughter will be a June bride. Rita Bopp 
Mahoney has a new grandchild. Kathleen Eileen Ryan born July 18. Katie 
and parents, Kathleen and Jerry Ryan, live in Rockville Center One of our 
more distant classmates, Rita Herzog Sturm, of Winchester, Virginia,

manages to get to California once a year to see them Jerrie Young Murphy 
is also a great grandmother of two boys. Nicholas. 14 months old and 
Matthew, one month (as of our lunch date). Jerrie s grandson. Mark, is now 


in college; he has also received his pilot's license. Her granddaughter. 
Pamela is engaged and will marry in the Spring. Pam's brother Joseph was 
married in October Jerries daughter. Eileen Hoffman, will have a show of 
her ceramic art in late November at the Smith Gallery on Madison Avenue, 
and granddaughter, Megan, will be dancing in "Nutcracker." Both Ceedle 
David and Marie Murphy are in touch with S. Mary Germaine (Grace 
Flnlay), who is consultant to the President of Catholic University of Puerto 
Rico in Ponce, where she is researching the history of the Josephites in 
Puerto Rico. As an extracurricular activity. S. Germaine is taking a 
computer course - in Spanish! Catherine Gebelein Earl, in a letter to Sr. 
George Aquln recalls the Brooklyn Campus "where I joyfully attended and 
enjoyed the Chapel and other facilities and received an excellent academic 
basis for life. I was not a Catholic at the time. . . I was converted to 
Catholicism at age 18" in 1952, Catherine received her LLB from St. John's 
and practiced law at Shokan, New York for twenty years. She was admitted 
to the N.Y. State Bar at age 40! Catherine retired some 19 years ago in 
Deming, New Mexico, where she enjoys the desert, the beautiful skies, 
clean air and sunshine - "close to God's Beauty and Love." The sound basis 
for life was given to me by you all at St. Joe's - Sister Lorenzo, Sister 
Manuella, Sister Charitina and others and of course - Father Dillon. We 
weather many storms and the strength to bear them is the Faith I received 
at St. Joe's. I had five close deaths - my only child, a son killed at 28, and a 
half year after, my husband at 51. (The Dillon Center has a plaque in her 
son's memory- Harold Carlson). I thank God for 50 years of life after I was 
close to death at King's County Contagious Hospital in 1938. Catherine 
was married again in 1984 to Herbert W Earl, a fine husband who needs 
prayers because of a debilitating illness. Please remember him.

What's for lunch? The answer was provided recently at the delightful 
Alumnae Luncheon at the Downtown Athletic Club for Mary Eliz McL 
Farrell, Edna Brennan Maloney, Anne Seitz Smith and Helen Brown. Helen 
recently heard from Harriet Faye Wynne, who live in Boston with Bob and 
who likes Massachusetts. Harriet was in touch with the alumni office too, for 
addresses etc. Try to leave Massachusetts next spring and attend the 
luncheon on April 8th, Harriet! Edna told us of lunching with Kay Allen and 
Mary Lavery and they chatted about their many pals in St. Joe's whom they 
met, courtesy of Marion Brennan and Kay and Peggy Lavery. Kay Allen was 
in touch with Betty Devlin Lockwood, who sold her home in Bradenton, but 
bought another in Sarasota. All the while we were hoping she would return 
to us in the "north country." At another luncheon in Bay Ridge. Grace 
Flannery Morris, Florence Kemp Carberry and yours truly Anne Seltz Smith 
learned that Florence's son John, who has his MBA from Harvard Business 

School, had been invited to give a lecture there on the ups and downs of 
Wall Street and environs. Florence's daughter, Sr. Kathleen Carberry CSJ 
'63, celebrated twenty-five years as a Sister of St. Joseph, and had a 
beautiful Mass and reception in Brentwood Eleanor Ivers Dugan plans a 
Florida vacation in January, in the area of Tarpon Springs, famed home of 
the "sponges". They now have two Catholic churches there, she says, 
because the Catholic population keeps growing. Eleanor is still an avid 
golfer and also enjoys bridge, especially duplicate bridge. She chats 
frequently with her son who lives in Dallas. Vivian Bird, still in Freeport. now 
has a nephew living with her. Until recently she also enjoyed the company 
of a niece, until she married. Vivian, who is retired, told me that Freeport 
has a woman mayor who is doing an excellent job. Also retired is Rosalie 
Sullivan Parrett. She and Joe live in Elmhurst and she still meets with a 
local group of pals from grammar school. Rosalie mentioned Helen Collins 
Rod who started SJC with us and attended for three years She later 
returned to SJC to finish her education, graduating in 1973. Helen inquired 
about Catherine Wills and I told her that although she sometimes uses a 
cane. Catherine continues to lead an active life. She does work for Our 
Lady of the Rosary church and I have met her at the Ladies of Charity 
affairs in New York, and Helen Dermody as well -another faithful, 
hardworking member of that organization. Catherine's brother comes 
down every Sunday from Goldens Bridge, NY, to spend the day with her. 
Genevieve Sheerin, now in Bay Ridge, plans a trip to Phoenix. Arizona, for 
the wedding of her nephew, Robert. She has been there before and has 
made the grand tour including Yellowstone Park, the Grand Canyon etc. 
Genevieve spends much time with her niece, Mary Ellen McManus 
Maguire and her family who live nearby We learned that Jane McLoughlln 
O'Connor underwent surgery recently but is recovering nicely. Jane's 
three daughters each presented their parents with a grandchild this year! 
Barbara, who lives in San Francisco, had Jane whose two year old sister is 
Mary. Christine, a lawyer, living in Denver had her first child, Benjamin on 
July 16th and on August 6th, Josephine had Claire, little sister of Lynn. Rod 
and Jane flown out to CA and CO to see the families there. Jo. John and 
daughters live nearby in Queens. Mary Eliz McL Farrell's youngest, 
Elizabeth, was married last August in Massachusetts, where all the 
relatives and friends gathered for a three day weekend. The weather, as 
well as the wedding and the whole weekend of events, was perfect. All 
seven children are now married. Anne Scanned Smith moved to Warrenton, 
Virginia, but has kept her pad in Peter Cooper Village. Her brother, Father 
Richard, is in St. John's Church in Alexandria and Anne is planning to 
move up that way, as another brother, Monsignor Tom, is in that area also. 
Anne is very fond of Warrenton, however, extolling the merits of the library 
there, the marvelous antique shops and the friendly people and has second 
thoughts about leaving. We offer our condolences to Belle Robertson 
O'Connor on the death of her husband last April and to Vita Aloisio 
Domino, whose husband, Francis, died on October 8, 1988. Please 
remember them in your prayers and Belle, too, who has not been too well. 
Catherine Lottus wrote regarding the death of Mercy Peppard Francke 
who died on August 14th. Mercy had started SJC with us but lost six 
months for personal reasons and received her diploma in 1936. Please 
remember her and her family in your prayers, also. Grace Flannery Morris 
was also very friendly with Mercy years ago We look forward to seeing 
many of you at the Annual Spring Luncheon next April. Please! It is such a 
lovely time and a way to meet and greet old pals

We were sorry to hear of the death of Mercy Peppard Franke recently and 
extend sympathy to her family and remember her in our prayers. Last 
summer, John and Virginia Humphreys Cooke celebrated their fiftieth 
wedding anniversary. Monsignor Diviney said a special Mass for them at 
their parish church which was followed with lunch at the Westhampton 
Country club. They were joined by all their children and their spouses and 
sixteen of the eighteen grandchildren. "It was a wonderful day - God has 
been very good to us." After reading of the "finding" of Kay Morgan, Virginia 
Norton Morgan wrote from Albuquerque, NM. asking for her address - old 
friends were reunited. Virginia does volunteer work for St. Vincent de Paul 
and is a member of the Holy Ghost Prayer Group. She and John find time for 
a little travelling now and then. Via the grapevine, we hear that Claire 
Brennan Suchan's daughter was a bride this year - in Sparta, New York. 
Again, Alumni Day on October 22nd. at the college, was a delight. Betty 
Pyne Dunleavy was the lone attendant from '36. "The college is just 
beautiful and it is worth the time and effort to visit just to see the many 
improvements that have been made in the last fifty years", she says. The Fall 
Luncheon on November 5th, at the Downtown Athletic Club, Manhattan, 


was attended by me, Dot Delay, Isabel Farrell and Alice Hagan Flnnerty. 

However, the lovely view of the harbor from the 16th floor was obscured by 
rain and fog. Dot Sommer missed the event because she was unable to 
make connections with someone to travel into the city. We offer heartfelt 
sympathy toAnn Jones Gordon on the death of her husband. Remember 
both in your prayers. Alice Fagan Flnnerty has fifteen grandchildren. Dot 
Delay has been homebound due to her sister's accident at the Atlantic 
Beach Club. However, her sister is doing well. We look forward to a reunion 
at Dot's cabana in summer '89. Dot and Isabel play weekly bridge and attend 
the theater in New York together - the latest: The Phantom of the Opera! I, 
Betty Pyne Dunleavy, am awaiting the birth of my sixth great-grandchild 
on November 17th. I understand it is a girl who will be named Danielle 
Nicole Donegan I'm always waiting word from each of you to bring us 
'36ers up to date on your own family ventures Write or phone some news 
for the next summer column God bless and keep you healthy for many 
more years.

Teddy, died September 11th, our third classmate to die this year. Anna 
Sullivan took two Franciscan trips, one to Puerto Rico in the spring and 
another to St. Louis and New Orleans, with beautiful scenery along the 
way. Her brother Frank's birthday party in Albany took precedence over 
our Fall luncheon at the Downtown Athletic Club. They had beautiful 
weather up there and a good family get-together. Dot White and Ruth 
Drucker attended the Fall luncheon. Dot works two days a week at Cabrini 
hospital and also matches volunteers with those needing a ride in the FISH 
program. She also works three times a week in a parish after-school 
program, Monday thru Friday. On June 29, 1988 Armand and Fran Caetta 
lanora celebrated their 42nd wedding anniversary. They spent the day 
entertaining Mary McNulty, Ruth Drucker and Isabella Knight Foster in 
their beautiful New Jersey home. Mary did the driving that day. I enjoyed a 
short lunch with Doris Whelan Coneys and Lillian McCloskey one day in 
Connecticut. Lillian's aunt, Sr. Fidelis Marie (McCloskey) had been their 
art teacher at St. Joseph's Academy in Brentwood, which evoked a flood of 
memories of high school and college days. Marie Birmingham Ponsot was 
elected Professor of the year at Queens College Cecilia Ruane Finnegan 
wrote that she has not been receiving mail. The alumni office checked and 
found that all was in good order and she should have no problem.

class, died in August Lorraine Schultheis Vaccaro was unaware that she

Maria Shehi writes from Lake Havasu City, Arizona, that the summer was 
quiet except for company - who brightened up the days. Weather was 
relentless with a three-week period of hot days never dropping below 1 06° 
and most days at 108°-114°. Daytime, was spent indoors working on 
assorted projects. Sometimes they would take side trips by bus. In May, 
Maria and Scott stayed for two weeks with her son Randy and his wife 
Christina, in New York, and it was grand being with the children. 
Christina's time was taken up with a course for "Certification for Critical 
Care Nurses" at Mt Sinai Hospital where she is employed and had to work 
a ten hour evening shift as well. She passed the course and is now CCCN.

November 10, 1989 




It is with sadness that we write of the death of our 
beloved faculty member, Father John C. Hession, on 
Saturday, February 18th of this year. Although he had 
been ill on and off for some time, his last illness was short 
and his sudden death left his parishioners at St. Genevieve's 
in Roxbury, grieving for the pastor they dearly loved. He 
is survived by his sisters, Alice Piatt, Isobelle Lonehan and 
a brother, Daniel Hession. 

John Hession was born in Brooklyn. He attended 
Manhattan College, Columbia University, and Immacu- 
late Conception Seminary in Huntington and was 
ordained on May 30, 1942. He served as assistant at St. 
Vincent Ferrer, Flatbush, until 1945 when he was assigned 
to the faculty of St. Joseph's College. 

Father Hession came to St. Joseph's College Philosophy 
Department as a young man, brilliant, cultured, a born 
story teller, with an infectious sense of humor. All of these 
qualities combined to make him a memorable teacher. He 
served as Chairperson of the Philosophy Department from 
1955 to 1973. During this period, one of his great joys was 
to team-teach a course in Aesthetics with S. Joseph 
Immaculate (English) and Father D'Ecclesiis (Music). 
Later he team-taught the "Riddle of Life" course with 
S. Mary Beatrice (Biology ) and Father Ferris (Religious 

As the college expanded, he taught at the Brentwood 
and then the Patchogue campuses as well as on the 
Brooklyn campus. Even after his appointment as pastor of 
St. Genevieve's in 1978, he countinued to teach until his 
retirement from SJC in 1982. 

Father Hession also served as a member of the Catholic 
Debating Club, a moderator of the Polytech Institute 
Newman Club and a member of the Priests' Senate. 

At a Mass in the college, Father Richard W. Ferris gave 
the following homily and tribute to his friend of many 

This is a privilege and I mean that from the bottom of 
my heart. It is a privilege because Fr. Hession was 
someone special. He was a gem of a man and a gem of a 
priest. Now I know that sounds a bit dramatic but I make 
no apology for it. I do believe that God puts a little bit of 
himself in every one of us and I believe that each of us is 
unique. But while everyone has his own special beauty, 
there are certain people who are exceptional. Among the 
endless variety of flowers, for example, roses or lillies or 
gardenias stand out for some people for their special 
delicacy. Similarly, while all stones have a certain appeal 

Father John C. Hession 

there are a few we call precious, such as diamonds or 
rubies or emeralds. Father Hession was a precious stone. 
He was a gem. 

He was a magnificent inspiration to anyone in the field 
of Theology. His life was a very vivid illustration of 
precisely how the theological virtues are meant to be lived. 
He was a man of unwavering faith, persevering hope and 
Christ-like charity. 

Father Hession's faith was not a very complicated one. 
Very simply, he accepted that God has spoken and that he 
continues to speak to each one of us. He believed that God 
has dramatically intervened in the lives of his people 
through Christ, His Son, and that He continues to do so in 
not so dramatic, but just as real a fashion. In its depth and 
intensity, his faith made the faith of so many of us seem 
weak by contrast. You might say that while many people 
believe in one fashion or another, he really believed. 

His faith was a faith that could move mountains and his 
spirit of hope was its equal. He trusted that God's 
providence was lovingly guiding the course of his life and 
that God would give him all that he needed to do His will. 
A gentle man by nature, he was capable of making a bold 
move once he decided that it was God's will. 

"The greatest of these is charity." Father Hession knew 
this and belived it. Love has a way of melting away so 
many details and clearing up so much complexity. Fr. 
Hession finally saw all life in terms of love of God and 
neighbor. One time we had both read an article on 
preparing for a happy death. It was a very long article and 
it was really too complicated. After reading it, I asked him, 
"Well, John, how do we prepare for a happy death?" 
There was a long pause, a humble shrug and the answer: 
"Love God, love your neighbor. Live a good life." Father 
Hession's charity came in a variety of little ways. He didn't 
cultivate his own personality all that much. He was too 
reserved and humble for that. But the little things were 
always there and carefully tended to. 

Father Hession was a family man. All of us know how 
much he loved his own family. As a professor for more 
than three decades at St. Joseph's College and as the pastor 
for more than ten years at St. Genevieve's, he showed the 
same fatherly concern for his students and his 
parishioners. He was a stickler on baptisms and 
weddings, caring for the sick and the dving and praying 
for all.

with Maura, Sheila, Michael 
and Cathie 

Catherine Colgan Stanton '68 

As the disposal of low level radioactive waste has 
emerged as a high priority public issue, one of the people 
both government and industry are looking to for expertise 
in finding a solution is 1968 St. Joseph's graduate, 
Catherine Colgan Stanton. 

In 1987 Cathie, who received her Masters in nuclear 
engineering from Ohio State University in 1970, gathered 
up her eighteen years of experience working for other 
people in the nuclear energy and safety field and 
incorporated Catherine C. Stanton & Associates. She has 
not had many quiet moments since. 

"The decision to cut the strings and go it alone was a 
difficult one," Cathie says of setting up her own business. 
"But nothing matches the satisfaction of being your own 

In part, she says, starting up was made a lot easier by 
both New York State and Federal programs that encourage 
big primary contractors to subcontract work to minority 
and women-owned businesses. "They won't keep you 
afloat if you can't make the grade," she says, "but they 
open a lot of doors and, if you are good at what you do, the 
doors stay open." 

The firm offers consulting services in connection with 
all types of nuclear technology, but low level waste has 
become the area of highest demand in recent years and 
Catherine C. Stanton 8c Associates, Inc. has quickly built a 
reputation of competence in sorting out the problems and 
translating them into language business people and 
policy makers can deal with. Cathie says she is as much an 
interpreter as an engineer on many jobs. 

Low level radioactive waste includes mostly industrial 
by-products ranging from parts of nuclear reactors to old 
exit signs and smoke detectors. Modern medical science 
produces low level waste at both treatment centers and 
pharmaceutical laboratories. Every new drug approved 
for use in the country must first pass tests using radio- 
active tracers that are eventually handled as low level 
waste. Academic researchers, searching for answers on 
cancer, AIDS, sickle cell anemia and crop productivity, 
among other subjects, are producers of low-level waste. 

Low level waste is considered less dangerous than high 
level waste, such as spent nuclear reactor fuel, because it 
usually is less concentrated and shorter lasting, but it can 
be hazardous and there is far more of it. There is a need 
under present law to develop new disposal facilities by 
1993. As the number of states planning these facilities 
increases, so do the concerns about how and where its gets 
disposed. "The challenge," says Cathie, is to make sure 


Nuclear Waste 

that this material is handled safely and that the vital 
services that depend on having safe disposal capability can 

The concern has become wide enough that colleges and 
universities have begun incorporating courses on radio- 
active waste in their physics and engineering curricula. 
The textbook some of them are using at both the graduate 
and undergraduate level is Radioactive Waste Manage- 
ment, co-authored by Cathie and Manhattan College 
professor Robert Berlin (John Wiley & Sons, New York). 
Cathie said that the text will fill a real need in compiling a 
lot of information about a subject that is surprisingly 
diverse. She's looking forward to hearing the reaction 
from students, who she knows will be the toughest critics. 

Cathie also teaches radiation safety as an adjunct 
professor at Manhattan College, in what she calls her 
"spare time." Spare time for Cathie is what comes before 
sleep but after business and caring for a husband and four 
children aged 15, 12, 6 and 3. 

That part of life includes four different PTAs, bus 
schedules and trip reminders as well as several scout 
troops (including a Girl Scout troop for which she is a 
co-leader) and assorted music lessons. Harry's position as 
Executive Director of the New York State Bridge Authority 
means that the whole family is very involved in what's 
going on in the Hudson Valley since his five bridges span 
the river from Bear Mountain to Rip Van Winkle just 
south of Albany. Cathie says she is an engineer who thinks 
like a lawyer while Harry has become a lawyer who thinks 
like an engineer, even to receiving the Bridge Man of the 
Year award from the Association of Bridge Design and 
Construction Engineers in 1988. 

Partly in response to what her children have been doing 
in school, Cathie has taken an active interest in encourag- 
ing science education — for students and teachers. She has 
given many talks to school groups of different ages on 
topics related to nuclear energy and radiation safety. In the 
fall she is scheduled to give a talk on comparative 
environmental impacts of different methods of producing 
electric energy to state science teachers at their annual 

Looking ahead to almost twenty years of paying college 
tuition gives Cathie strong motivation to keep her business 
growing. However, while the arrival of the first royalty 
check on the same day the station wagon needed new tires 
was serendipitous, she may need to think up a gothic 
romance that makes some real money rather than a second 
edition of the textbook. 

Inez Votta '50 

When our editor invited me to write some anecdotal 
material about my experience teaching English Conversa- 
tion to Japanese newcomers, I was at a loss. My work with 
them for the past ten years seemed as natural and 
uneventful as the usual flow of most of our lives. But then, 
upon further consideration I realized what an important 
part of my life these gentle Japanese ladies and their 
families have become. 

And how did this all begin? By sheer serendipity - for I 
had no teaching credentials. I graduated from St. Joseph's 
with a major in French and a minor in Philosophy, 
seeking merely to better use my leisure time - since I had 
plenty of it having been paralyzed by polio during my 
infancy and living a rather sedentary life. 

I met my first Japanese student those many years ago, in 
the mail room of my apartment house. Hers was a new face 
to me - so I welcomed her with a big smile. She readily 
responded, telling me in charming, flawless English that 
she and her husband had j ust been assigned to the States by 
the Mitsumoto Co. of Japan for a three year stint and asked 
if I could recommend an English teacher with whom she 
could further improve and practice conversational 
English. I quickly offered myself, instinctively sure we 
could hit it off learning English and becoming friends. 
And so my career of "Sensee" (teacher) was launched by 
Yuko Tanaka. Each week when she came to my apartment 
she would bring one of her friends, recommend me 
enthusiastically, and thus a network was formed and my 
modest little classes had developed into a veritable academy 
of eager, buzzing Japanese ladies - about 13 a week. 

As each lady has different needs and educational levels I 
tailor my lessons individually, acting more as guide than 
teacher, leading them gently through what could be a 
Stygian mire of grammar and vocabulary and above all, 
building their sagging self-confidence with a sincere show 
of affection and empathy. 

As an example: Mrs. Ito is a college graduate of Tokyo 
University with studies in Italian Culture. She has a great 
appreciation for the Italian Renaissance. So, we have 
long, gossipy, English conversations about the famous 
Medicis and the infamous Borgias, and to add zest to this 
rich fare, I coax my 94 year old mother (the Indomitable 
One!) who is fluent in both English and Italian, into the 
fray. This potpourri of ideas and exchange of opinions is 
an enriching experience and I often end up after such a 
session feeling I have taken much more than I have given. 

All my ladies consider it a great treat to have Mother join 


in the conversation, for at her venerable age they revere her 
-and call her their "National Treasure." They are amazed at 
her spry step, coiffed hair, manicured nails and so greatly 
amused to see this regal matriarch still smoking cigarettes 
with a firm and steady hand that belies her age. I wish her 
memory were as good! She has some difficulty remembering 
names nowadays so she slyly resorts to giving nicknames to 
cover up these lapses. These exotic Japanese names become: 
"Lady Renaissance", "Lady Cookie" (she brings home- 
made ones each week), "Lady Melba", who sang Opera 
professionally in her native Japan, and "Lady Tiffany" 
who delighted us this Christmas with a crystal vase from 
that company. It's an endless list and I eagerly await 
Mother's ingenious flights of fancy as she dubbs each 
newcomer. She reminds me of Adam in the Garden of Eden 
when he named all of creation. 

A few of my students come to me with a very rudimentary- 
knowledge of English or Western ways. They are simple 
housewives and mothers who are perfectly happy in this 
role and want to learn either at the urging of their husband 
or from the sheer necessity of communicating in super- 
markets and in the school scene which they take very 
seriously, managing their children. 

To facilitate and encourage these young mothers I found 
it necessary to learn to read and write Japanese. A few "How 
To Do It Yourself" books were my first brave attempts - and 
then some of my more advanced ladies gave me some key- 
words and expressions in Japanese that helped me along. I 
shall never forget the thrill I felt when after showing me 
how to write the expression, to learn in their Chinese 
adapted characters, one of my girls explained the origin ol 
its radical. It is comprised of two roots, one is the symbol for 
flight or wings and the other is the abstracted pictograph for 
"self." Thus, to learn means to take flight or to soar. What a 
beautiful concept, or rather picture of the word and what a 
noble people these are to have so captured the very spirit of 
learning! Their pictograph for to love is yet another 
instance of the universality of thought. It combines the 
character of woman and child - thus you have woman plus 
child equals love - an equation that makes sense in any 

Indeed when I think of my association with these ladies 
and how my own horizons have widened I'm grateful to 
have been open to the beckoning of my first student - that 
stranger in need, and I recall the words of Paul in Hebrews 
1 3:2: "Do not foregt to entertain strangers, for thereby some 
have entertained angels unawares." 




Benedictine Life 

Patricia Hayward Brunk '62 

Last summer, Patricia Hayward Brunk '62 and her 
family moved from Brentwood, Long Island, to Hornell, 
New York, some 350 miles away. That sounds ordinary 
enough but this was not quite an ordinary move. It was 
not just a matter of relocating a family into a new home 
because this new family home is also the monastic home of 
Holy Trinity Community. 

Holy Trinity Community is an evolving mixed 
community living a vowed life in the spirit of the Rule of 
Saint Benedict. Its members hope to become a community 
of single women and men, married couples, priests, and 
celibate persons living a Benedictine spirited monastic life 
adapted to our times. Patricia is a vowed member of this 

At SJC, Patricia Hayward majored in psychology and 
received her B.A. in 1962. Immediately after graduation, 
she began a career as a caseworker for Child Welfare 
Services of Suffolk County. She married Altino Brunk in 
1963, and their first child, a son, was born in June 1965. At 
that time Pat gave up outside employment to pursue full- 
time homemaking. A second was born the following June, 
and three more sons were to follow. 

Through many events and experiences during these 
years, Pat and Al began to sense an attraction to a 
communal way of life particulary centered on prayer and 
hospitality. Their work in Marriage Encounter had 
enriched them and had exposed them to the beauty and 
dignity not only of marriage, but of the single and celibate 
states as well. They envisioned a community in which a 
microcosm of the Church would be present, i.e., married, 
single and celibate people working, praying, and living 
together in complimentarity, without competition. 

In the early 1970's, Al and Pat were introduced to 
another couple with a similar dream, and a deep and 
abiding friendship was formed. Eventually, the decision 
was made to purchase a large parcel of land in the lovely 
rolling hills of Western New York State, in preparation 
for the "someday" when the dream of community would 
be realized. Then tragedy intervened. 

In October, 1980, Al died suddenly and unexpectedly 
from an undetected aneurysm. Pat was left not only a 
widow, but the single parent of five boys. The oldest was 
15 and the youngest, twins, were barely six. It was a 
painful, empty, and frightening period. Pat and her 
friends never even approached the topic of community 
during that first year of grief, shock and Joss. They did, 

however, continue to meet together twice a week for 
revealing and sharing life experiences and prayer, 
primarily Vespers and Compline from the Liturgy of the 

In the course of the next few years, Pat and her friends 
Pat and John Brewster, parents of Mary '85, made a 
number of week-long retreats at a Benedictine Abbey 
outside Boston, Massachusetts. In prayer and discernment, 
they realized that Al's death had not changed the call to 
community life except that now that call was to be lived 
not as two couples, but as a couple and a single woman. 
Already, different vocations were represented in the 
community. Moreover, the three recognized the Benedictine 
way of life as the kind of life they had been trying to live for 
a number of years. Pat and the Brewsters received 
encouragement and support (and prodding!) in the 
formation of this new expression of Benedictine life from 
friends, both lay and clerical, including the commmunity 
of Benedictine monks at the Abbey. This formation 
resulted in the profession of their first vows in 1985 
(traditional Benedictine vows of obedience, conversion of 
life, and stability in community). 

In the meantime, Pat had returned to part-time work in 
her parish rectory, close to home and children. She had 
also matriculated at the Seminary of the Immaculate 
Conception in Huntington, NY for a Master's degree in 
Theology which she received in December 1985. 

Pat maintains that in justice, the names of her children 
should appear on that diploma. Older sons supervised 
homework for younger ones and officiated at bed-time 
rituals while Pat attended night classes and struggled to 
juggle single-parenting, a job, lectures, and term papers. 
She recalls one Thanksgiving weekend shortly before 
completing her degree when Tim, home from Amherst 
College, and Terence, a freshman home from Drew 
University, spent most of their precious vacation time 
typing a Biblical exegesis which Mom had due on Monday 
night. Theology became a family affair! At the present 
time, Tim is completing his Master's degree in theology at 
Boston College. Terence is in the Doctoral program in 
English Literature at Rutgers University. Paul, 18, is a 
sophomore at Cornell University where he is a philosophy 
major. Daniel and David, 14 year old twins, are now 
freshmen at Hornell High School.

AARP Director 

Early this year Martha A. Leaver '45 was appointed an 
Assistant State Director for New York by the American 
Association of Retired Persons. Since January, Martha has 
been supervising eight Brooklyn Chapters and is organiz- 
ing a new one in Park Slope. This Spring, she attended 
Conferences for new AARP Volunteer Leaders held in 
Philadelphia and Albany. 

Prior to this appointment, Martha Leaver served as 
President of the Bay Ridge Chapter #3630 of the AARP, 
which has a membership of 50, plus a waiting list. In 1986 
she started an award program whereby a $500 scholarship 
is awarded to a student nurse at Downstate College of 
Nursing whose interest is in Gerontology. There have 
been four winners. 

AARP also sponsored an in-service course, given by 
Adelphi University to staff members at Lutheran Medical 
Center, on Long Term Care. AARP members have also 
made 35 hand crocheted lap robes to date. 

In working with AARP members, Martha says, "I try to 
transfer the skills of working with young adults to older 
people. From the time I retired in 1983, I started working 
with AARP at the Bay Ridge Chapter. It has helped me to 
become more active in community service, and by getting 
involved I »."ot only learn for myself, but I can transfer that 
knowledge to other people." 

After Martha graduated from St. Joseph's College, she 
taught at Pratt Institute for three years as a full-time 

Martha A. Leaver '45 
Instructor. She retired from the New York City school 
system, after 35 years of teaching, which included 13 years 
at James Madison High School in Flatbush and 1 5 years at 
Susan E. Wagner High School on Staten Island. Martha is 
a member of the Association of Retired Teachers of New 
York City, the CSREA - an advocacy group of retired civil 
service workers, the Bay Ridge Interagency Council, and 
Alpha Beta Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma, the 
International Honor Society for Women Educators. 

AARP is the nation's largest organization of Americans 
age 50 and older. The nonprofit, nonpartisan organization 
offers a wide range of membership benefits, legislative 
representation at the federal and state levels, and 
educational and community service programs carried out 
through a national network of volunteers and local 
chapters. Its headquarters are in Washington, D.C. 

Benedictine Life, continued 

Moving to Hornell was, in itself, quite an adventure. 
Because of heavy spring rains, the building was still in the 
last stages of completion, necessitating over a week's stay 
in a motel before the Brunks could move in and "camp 
out" in their new home. The moving van with all their 
clothing and possessions was delayed four days in arriving. 
There was no electricity — not even the long-promised 
electric poles on the road had been put into place. The 
well-digger, who had been contacted seven months prior 
to the move, had failed to show, and when the first well 
was finally put in, (by a different well-digger!) the water 
was black, laden with sulphur and iron. Better water came 
from a second well but it was still poor quality and a 
sizeable filtration system had to be purchased and installed 
to make the water both safe and palatable for drinking. 

The local pastor took pity on the six Brunks and the one 
member of the Brewster family who was with them, (the 
rest of the Brewster family arrived later) and welcomed the 
adventurers for dinner and showers (remember the record- 
breaking heat of July 1988?) each day until the water 
problem was solved. 

The building itself comprises three wings: two are 
individual family residences, complete family apartments, 
and the third wing is the common or community area 
which houses the chapel, community dining room and 
kitchen, library, and conference room. There are three 
guest bedrooms available for anyone wishing to spend a 
few hours, an overnight or several days apart from his or 
her daily routine. 

How does a single parent "monk" live? Pat describes it 
this way: 

"The Benedictine way of Christian life was not begun 
by St. Benedictine to do any special work. Benedictines are 
to be living signs that strangers can come together in 
Christ, care for one another, support one another, 
challenge one another to grow. Our essential ministry is 

Holy Trinity Community gathers in the chapel for the 
Liturgy of the Hours to mark the coming of light and 
darkness, the passing of night and day, and the turning of 
the seasons. This gives a distinctive rhythm to our life, in 
which there is also time designated for spiritual reading 
and personal prayer. 

In addition to periods of communal and private prayer, 
there are also times set aside for serving others. The ways 
we serve are expressive of the gifts and skills of the 
members and responsive to the needs of the local area. For 
example, we were recently asked by one of the area 
parishes to conduct a Lenten program for one of their 
organizations. There are also times for coming together 
for meals and discussions, for silence and solitude, work 
and play. 

Our community includes members who are also parents. 
However, their children are not community members and 
great care is taken to safeguard the integrity of each 
family's life." 

Pat's children lead ordinary, normal lives, and being a 
mother is primary in her life. 

Questions about Holy Trinity Community or inquiries 
about retreat possibilities may be addressed to Patricia

Life of 

Kevin Reilly '76 

At. St. Joseph's College, Kevin Reilly was an ernest, 
well-rounded student, who accelerated his studies to 
receive his bachelor's degree in three years. In 1976 he 
graduated with Departmental Honors in History, his 
major field. He left St. Joseph's with the ambition to 
continue his education and to expand his knowledge of 
the world. 

In September, Kevin matriculated at Brooklyn College 
to study for a Master's degree in History, but travel was 
also on his mind. In the summer of 1977 he boarded a 
plane bound for Shannon, Ireland, and with a pack on his 
back began four weeks of hitch-hiking to many of the 
places he had read about. This was a way of meeting the 
people intimately, learning their customs, family life and 
culture, as well as seeing places off the beaten track. Before 
summer was over, he travelled in Great Britain then flew 
to the continent where he sojourned in France, Germany, 
the Netherlands, Austria and Switzerland. 

When he returned home Kevin took up studies again at 
Brooklyn College, but he was not feeling well. After some 
time doctors diagnosed his problem as hepatitis, which he 
might have picked up in his travels. Weeks of hospital- 
ization and recuperation set him back in his time schedule, 
so that his master's degree, which he had hoped to acquire 
in 1977, was not earned until 1978. 

In 1978 he was awarded a Thomas More Fellowship for 
a Law Degree at St. John's University Law School. Kevin 
recalled that the day he began his studies, his father died, a 
shock and grief to him and the family. Nevertheless, he 
finished his first year, and in the summer returned to 
Europe to study at the London School of Economics 
where he received nine credits towards his law degree. The 
rest of the summer he "back-packed" again, mostly in 
Ireland. But he made sure to be in Paris on Bastille Day, a 
day to remember! 

In his second and third year of law school, Kevin was 
elected Academic Vice President of his class. During those 
years he was also a full-time doctoral student in American 
History at City University Graduate Center at Fifth 
Avenue and 42nd Street. He finished his graduate credits 
for this degree but has yet to complete his dissertation 
which he would like to do on the development and 
breakdown of ethnic neighborhoods in New York City 
during the 19th and 20th centuries. 

Kevin Reilly received his law degree in 1981. After three 
years of study day and night, Kevin chose to work in the 
construction field for a while, doing manual work. He 
thoroughly enjoyed this change. Concurrently, he served 
as an adjunct professor at CUNY, teaching History and 
Political Science. 

In the fall of 1982, Kevin had a brief stint at private law 
practice. In December, he accepted a position in Criminal 
Court in the Bronx, serving for a year. During that period 
he ran for election to his local School Board in Bay Ridge, 
Brooklyn, but lost by a narrow margin. For the following 
three years, he was Law Secretary for a Supreme Court 
Justice in Bronx Supreme Court. 

The next change, he vividly remembers, was on the day 
before his wedding. He became Executive Assistant to 
Presiding Justice Francis T. Murphy of the State Supreme 
Court, Appellate Division, First Department. In April 
1987, a Law Assistant position in the Appellate Division 
opened and he began to work for the bench, doing research 
and writing on appeals. Kevin, besides his background in 
criminal law, specializes in Environmental Law and asked 
that such cases, be assigned to him, in order to gain 

The summer of 1986 found Kevin Reilly in Great Britain 
again. He spent some time in London, the highlight of 
which was attending the American Bar Association Annual 
Convention. Interested in the criminal justice system of 
Northern Ireland, Kevin next visited that republic to make 
inquires first-hand. Paul O'Dwyer had directed him to 
Patrick Finucane, an attorney, with whom he had lunch 
and an informative conversation. It was a shock for Kevin 
to read that Patrick was killed recently. Kevin also met with 
members of parliament and local leaders to whom he was 
introduced by a friend. He hopes to return to Ireland this 
summer to continue his inquiries. 

Kevin Reilly is Vice President of Cathedral Club in 
Brooklyn, a club for lawyers and business people. He is 
member of the Board of Directors of St. John's Law School 
Alumni Association and has served on the Executive Board 
of St. Joseph's College Alumni Association as a member at 
large and as vice-president. Kevin is a charter member of 
the Brehon Law Society, a group of New York lawyers 
involved with Civil Rights in Northern Ireland and related 
issues. He is on the Board of Catholic Lawyers Guild, 
Kings County, and is active in the Breezy Point Cooperative.

What is Needed to Educate Our Students 

At a recent faculty meeting, Carol J. Hayes, PhD. 
Chairperson of the Biology Department of St. Joseph's 
College, read her opinion of what is needed to educate our 
students properly for life in a technological society: 

We, and our students, present and future, are and will 
continue to be living in a society which is becoming 
increasingly technological. There has been already, and 
there will continue to be, as a result of this technology, an 
ever increasing information explosion the likes of which 
has been unknown in the history of humankind. 

Our students will be dealing in a society 

• in which higher animals (including humans) will 
be genetically engineered 

• in which the human genome will be completely 
mapped and there will be gene therapy for human 

• in which biotechnology will be a 30 billion dollar 
plus industry 

• in which the environment will be increasingly 

• in which the energy crunch will worsen and we will 
be forced to rely on nuclear power 

• in which drug abuse and other plagues (like AIDS) 
will affect more and more people 

• in which the population will continue to increase as 
we become better able to decrease infant mortality 
rates and increase life spans 

As a result, they will be forced to deal with and to make 
decisions concerning such problems as 

• whether or not life forms should be patented - or do 
they belong to all of us 

• whether or not technology should deal in dollar 
profit - or for the good of all humankind 

• which human beings should be subjected to gene 
therapy - should all of us be alike? - or is diversity 
still the essence of survival? 

• what chemical, physical, or biological agents 
should be declared imminent hazards to humans 

• how to feed the burgeoning humanity 

• what to do about the greenhouse effect - if such, in 
fact, exists 

• the strict control of nuclear technology 

Decisions on these must be made from a knowledge base 
and not on an emotional level in which there is blame and 
lack of understanding. 

Our technological society demands, and will continue 
to demand, knowledge and production on every level. 
There is current concern in the business community 
among educators at every level, and at the national level 
that our students simply are not being prepared for the 
challenges that will face them. 

In a Business Week article entitled "Needed: Human 
Capital ", the author points out that now, Chemical Bank of 

of New York must interview forty applicants to find one 
who can be successfully trained as a teller and that IBM 
has to teach high school algebra to thousands of 
employees before they can run a computer. 

In a Business Week article entitled "Where the Jobs Are, 
the Skills Aren't", the author cites the fact that technology 
is upgrading the work required in most jobs - the modem 
workplace needs people with high reading, math, and 
science capabilities. People who are already working will 
need massive retraining to keep pace with changing 
requirements. He points out that there are currently 30 
million of these people who will need more math and 
science, or better reading and writing skills. 

The National Science Foundation is concerned that 
there will be a shortfall of 400,000 scientists and engineers 
by the year 2000. 

All of this is happening against a background in which 
science and math literacy are at an all time low in the 
United States. Our students, according to NSF and the 
National Research Council, are at the bottom of the pack 
when it comes to math and science achievement. On 
international achievement tests: 

• only 78% of American students can do one-step math 
problems (simple addition or subtraction) 

• only 40% can solve two-step math problems (eg., 
calculating an average 

• and, in understanding concepts, eg., the basic 
principles of measurement and geometry, the 
problem is even worse - only 9% of American 
students understand 

The scenario is similar for science scores: 

• most know basic everyday facts 

• but, only 78% can apply simple scientific principles 

• only 35% can analyze simple data 

• only 7% can design experiments and interpret data 

What does all this mean for St. Joseph's College? What 
can we do for our students to put them ahead of the 
international averages? 

I think, first of all, we must provide them with a work 
ethic. Our students must understand that to be educated is 
not synonomous with working less. They must have a 
passion for their disciplines because, in fact, they will be 
called upon to work longer hours for less pay than many 
of their uneducated counterparts. They will have this 
passion and this work ethic only if they see it in us - their 
mentors, their role models. They tend to think that 
academic communities run on a 15 to 18 hour week. We 
have to demonstrate to them the fallacy of the thinking 
that accomplishments reveal themselves in 15 to 18 hours 
a week. 

Each department should have a core of recent alumni 
who are willing to feed back honestly to the department - 
to tell us what they feel we are doing well and what we 
should do better. They are able to make these judgments 
based on their own experiences in graduate and professional 
schools and in the workplace. We, in turn, must be willing 
to listen to what they say and to hear some things that may 
be a little hard to swallow.

Speech Pathologist 

To realize life's dream is something that many people 
fantasize about, but few get the opportunity to do. Joan 
Kronman, SJC Patchogue graduate '82, is one of those 
lucky few. 

Some years ago, Joan attended Brooklyn college where 
she majored in Speech - which was much different from 
the Speech major today' However, she left Brooklyn 
College before graduation, married, and embarked on a 
career as homemaker and mother of three children. 

When her third child entered college, Joan decided it 
was time to return to school. She earned her Associate 
degree at Suffolk Community College and then transferred 
to St. Joseph's College in Patchogue, where she graduated 
in December 1981 as a Child Study major with dual 
certification in Special Education and Elementary 
Education. Because it is necessary to have a Master's 
degree to work in Speech Pathology, she entered the 
graduate program at C.W. Post. While she was taking 
nine credits that first semester at C.W. Post, she was asked 
to teach a Special Education class from March to June, 
1982. (If you want something done well, ask a busy 
person.) In May, 1984, during an awards ceremony at the 
university, Joan received the Graduate Memorial Award 
for Outstanding Achievement in Speech and Hearing. In 
October '84, she graduated from Long Island University at 
C.W. Post with an MA in Speech Pathology. Nine months 
later, after doing her Practicum with adults and children, 
Joan became a New York State Clinical Speech Pathologist. 

Joan has a small office in a Professional Building in 
Center Moriches, where she sees clients varying greatly in 

age and medical condition. Working with stroke and head 
trauma patients, people with tumors, children with 
learning disabilities, articulation or voice disorders and 
lanaguage delayed problems, is part of her daily routine. 
On any given day for example Joan can be found working 
with a stroke patient who knows clearly what he wants to 
say, but cannot get the words to come out right; a 17 
year-old girl with an inoperable brain tumor, or two year- 
old with a language delayed problem as a result of too 
many middle ear infections. The work could be depressing, 
but acceptance of one's condition is the key to a positive 
outlook and something that Joan stresses. 

In addition to her private practice, Joan is a faculty 
member at SJC in Patchogue, teaching in the rapidly 
growing Speech Communication Department. The 
courses are planned so that students may develop 
confidence and poise, become better listeners, learn how to 
get and hold attention in speech situations, acquire the 
means to express their convictions effectively and receive 
training in the skills of interpretative reading and character 
portrayal. Joan is teaching three courses this semester: 
"Speech Communication," "Voice and Articulation," 
and "Audiology." 

Joan maintains an active family life with three grown 
children, Bruce, Steven and Celia, and six grandchildren. 
Spending time with her family is among her life's 
pleasures. This past January, Joan and Herbert went to 
Hawaii — another life's dream — and a dream come true.

What Is Needed To Educate Our Students, continued 

We must involve our students more and more in their 
own education. This we can do in a number of ways: 

• By teaching them to work independently and to 
think critically in recitation sections of courses and 
in laboratories 

• by giving them projects which will challenge them to 
work to completion - a semester's length, a year in 
length, or four years in length. 

• by providing internships or cooperative arrange- 
ments with companies, research institutions, etc., 
where they can demonstrate to themselves the value 
of all they are learning, in a practical sense. In the 
sciences, for example, many of our alumni look for 
students who are willing to work with them. I 
recommend that all departments get involved with 
their alumni in this manner - students are very 
practical today - they want to know what they can do 
with what they are learning in all of their courses, not 
just their major courses. 

In order for us to provide these experiences, we 
must have confidence in the students, no matter what 
their entering scores are (perhaps we should not 
know what these are). Expect more of them than you 
think they can accomplish. You will be surprised at 
what they can produce when you make them think 
they are better than they really are - because you have 
given them the confidence that they never had. 

Perhaps the College can consult with some of the 
corporations that have a need for retraining their 
employees. Based upon the outcome of these discussions, 
we could then develop programs in the division of Arts and 
Sciences for adults from these companies, for the purpose 
of retraining. 

We must keep in mind that the concept of what an 
educated person is has changed over time. The complete 
person of medieval times and the compleat person of 
modern times are vastly different. In medieval times, it was 
possible to teach a student much more of the truth because 
there was not that much known. Today, that is impossible - 
the body of knowledge is just too vast and we must be 
satisfied with educating specialists, and not generalists. 

And lastly, we must upgrade the mathematical and 
scientific knowledge of all of our students - scientists and 
non-scientists alike. I suggest we do this by requiring all 
students to take real science courses. Let us not decide that 
these are too difficult for our students to learn - whatever 
our own feelings about our past experiences in these areas 
may be. Let us not prejudice them so that they come to 
believe that understanding in these areas is above them. 

All of our students - scientists or not - will be expected to 
make critical moral, legal, and ethical decisions in these 
areas and without the necessary knowledge, they will be 
impotent. When the time comes, it will not be sufficient for 
them simply to have the ability to think clearly - they must 
have the knowledge base for the decision making. 

Special Day 

At Teachers College, Columbia University, a "special 
day" was held to honor Professor Frances Partridge 
Connor's achievements in the field of special education. 
The theme of the day was "New Coalitions With and For 
the Handicapped: Advocacy in the 21st Century." Dr. 
Frances Connor, who joined the TC faculty in 1954, served 
for more than 20 years as the chair of the Department of 
Special Education. She retired in 1987. Monsignor John 
Houlihan, who received hisdoctorate in Special EdatTC, 
was master of ceremonies for the dinner honoring 
Professor Connor.

Michele Pilo '84S 

Stony Brook Museum, in Stony Brook, New York, is a 
very exciting place, so finding Michele Pilo, SJC 
Patchogue '84, working there as Acting Assistant Director 
for Education was not a surprise. 

That she loves her job is evident from the wonderful 
programs she has helped to establish there. Michele is 
Educational Director of the Volunteer Guides. Guides 
receive extensive training during Monday morning 
sessions at the museum. They are taught ways to reach 
children and to address the needs of special classes. To 
help coordinate the program Michele uses the teaching 
techniques that she learned at St. Joseph's. 

Michele graduated magna cum laude in January 1984 
with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education. An 
outstanding student, she was on the Dean's List and 
elected to Delta Epsilon Sigma, Sigma Iota Chi and Kappa 
Gamma Pi. Her dedication to hard work has not waned 
since graduation. 

Michele is the President of the Long Island Museum 
Association. She has served as Chairperson of the Long 
Island Museum Association Educators Committee from 
1984 to 1987 and was affiliated with the Fellowship for 
Mid-Atlantic Association of Museums in 1985. Other 
professional experience includes chairing and presenting 
a workshop entitled, "Developing and Marketing 
Teaching Materials: Taking Museum Resources to the 
Schools," at the American Association for State and Local 
History Conference, held in Rochester, New York, in 
1988; organizing and presenting workshops entitled 
"Interpreting Music and Dance Through the Art of 
William Sidney Mount," and "Teaching with Carriages: 




Horse Drawn Transportation History for the Schools" at 
the 1988 ALHFAM Annual Conference. Michele also took 
an active role in the publication of Nineteenth Century 
American Music and Dance in the Art of William Sidney 
Mount, (The Museum at Stony Brook, 1986.) 

One of her greatest loves is the "School House" 
program at the Museum, which operates on the hands-on 
principle. There are programs for gifted and talented 
classes and programs tailored to special groups. Michele 
also worked on a grant that developed a music and dance 
teaching program for Long Island, called "Catching the 
Tune". She found that the educational experiences she 
had received at St. Joe's - such as writing lesson plans and 
her thesis - were invaluable to her museum career. 

Michele and her husband, Joseph have four chidlren: 
Teresa, a graduate of St. Bonaventure; Kristine, a Senior at 
SUNY Albany; Michael, a Freshman at Towson State 
University, and Danny, a 5th grade student. Michele's 
husband, Joe who is the Chairman of the Science 
Department at Smithtown High School East, initiated 
and developed Advance Placement Biology there. 

"It is important to expose children to a museum when 
they are young," said Michele. "The exposure is invaluable 
and leads them to keep an open mind about culture." 

For relaxation, Michele likes to read and quilt. She is a 
Eucharistic minister in her parish in Stony Brook. 

She is interested in working with students majoring 
either in Child Study or History who would like to serve as 
interns at the Museum. Students who are interested should 
contact their Head of Department.

Directors of Counseling and Career Services 


Anna Bess Robinson is Director of Counseling and 
Career Services in Patchogue. She broke away from her 
small town in Oklahoma to attend Randolph Macon 
Women's College. While there she received a grant one 
summer to study in Mexico and to observe a different 
culture. It was her first travel experience. 

Anna Bess married a military man, James Robinson, 
and as they moved from one assignment to another, she 
continued her education through travelling, through 
observation of people and their customs, and through the 
variety of jobs she undertook along the way. 

With military obligations over, the Robinsons settled in 
New Jersey where Anna Bess attended Rutgers University 
Graduate School and earned a Master's degree in 
Counseling. She worked part time as a Youth Counselor 
for New Jersey State youth and part time as Associate 
Professor of Sociology in a new community college. 
During this time Suzy was born. They moved again to 
upstate New York where Erin was born. In 1978, the 
Robinsons made a final move to Long Island and in 1981 
Anna Bess started to work for St. Joseph's College in the 
Career and Counseling Center. 

Anna Bess is available to students and alumni in all 
phases of career and personal counseling. She explained 
that a good guidance counselor doesn't always get credit. 
If the counselor is good the person being counseled thinks 
he did it himself. Usually people have the resources within 
themselves, but just need a professional to bring them to

Life of Rally, continued 

On October 11, 1986, Kevin married Mary Fallon, also 
an attorney, who is litigator for an insurance company. 
His mother, Helen Fennelly Reilly, is a graduate of the 
Class of 1942, who twice served as President of SJC 
Alumni Association. Kathleen Masterson, his sister, also 
graduated from St. Joseph's, in 1979. His brother, Sean, 
graduated from Yale and Fordham Law School and his 
brother, Daniel, from St. John's University. 

Travel, scuba diving, skiing and rafting (on the Grand 
Canyon and Green Rivers) have been a big part of Kevin's 
recreational activities. On his agenda at some future time is 
an African safari and back-packing through New Zealand. 

Kevin is also a writer. He has contributed chapters to 
legal textbooks published by Matthew Bender, Inc. A book 
on Criminal Law, in the proposal stage, is intended as a 
practical handbook on that subject.

Frank and Linda (Borelli) Ridzi 

Linda (Borelli 73) and Frank Ridzi are a coordinating 
couple for the Natural Family Planning Apostolate of the 
Brooklyn Diocese under the umbrella of the Family Life 
Ministry. As coordinators, they share the teaching of 
Natural Family Planning with other couples, and help 
prepare new teachers for the program. 

The Ridzis are frequently invited to address college 
groups, high school students, mostly girls, and occasion- 
ally the more-mature eighth graders. 

When they thought of marriage, Linda and Frank knew 
they wanted a family. They knew, too, that a child very 
early in marriage would be a real hardship. They reviewed 
Linda's notes from her marriage course, wishing to follow 
church teaching. They reassessed their goals in marriage, 
confirming their decision to have a life free of guilt, of 


artificial birth control, and full of love. They wanted a 
family they could plan and care for. Luckily a brochure 
found at the rear of the church led them to the Natural 
Family Planning Association and put them in touch with 
a group of couples already using and teaching NFP, who 
shared personal experiences of sacrifice and fulfillment. 

When they began their married life fifteen years ago, the 
Ridzis found that although it was not always easy to live 
their commitment with God there were many surprising 
benefits. Soon shared responsibility became a loving way 
of life, blessed with the peace of a clear conscience and 
filled with joy which they share with their planned family, 
Frank, Tom, John Paul and Mary, ages 12 to 3, and Clare, 
born in May. 

They will share that joy with you. For information 
about NFP call Frank and Linda at (718) 499-7209. 

Fr. John Hession, continued 

These are some of the words and phrases that I think of 
when I think of John: gentleness, clear vision, modesty, 
story-telling, intelligence, books and more books, wisdom, 
humor, Fr. D'Ecclesius, class, thick eyebrows, zany 
descriptions of people and things, travel, reserve, 
reassurance, loyalty, love of the Holy Father, purity, more 
books, praying, praying, praying. 

John did not have a great number of close friends, but 
the ones he had were friends for life. Death measures the 

quality of good relationships. An endearing relationship 
builds on more than physical presence. It builds on 
experiences we have shared, common interests, a sense of 
camaraderie, loyalty and hope. And the hope is that 
though distance may separate us for a time, we will one 
day be together again. Death is the space between John 
and us for now, but not really for long. He is so fortunate. 
How wonderful it is to sit in the presence of God. Father 
Hession is with his Lord. 

Do You Know Candidates for Admission to St. Joseph's College?

members." writes Marie. The Spring Luncheon was attended by Eleanor

Pleasure of Their Company. Some of the topics that have been covered 
are: love through the pages of the ages; empathy through the reading of 
biography; famous sleuths of mystery fiction. This type of activity which, 
as stated, is for seniors, she balances by periodic visits to the 
Meadowflower Nursery School in Fair Haven which is run by Eileen 
Schilling Bassler '60. "Miss Marie" joins in the varied programs that Eileen

feature Marion Willmott Thorn and Dick visited Rosemary Sheridan

The New Year began with a sad note for '32 - the news that Helen Curran 
Flynn died on January 7th. She was the sole Manhattanite in our class - 
what's more a Greenwich Villager' Helen was truly delightful, a cheery, 
sensible gal who added just the right touch to any discussion. Warm and 
gracious Helen brought these attributes to her 52-year marriage to Simon 
and to her fine family of four - Maeve. Sheilah, Kevin and Brian. We share 
their loss John and Mary White Kearney spent some time in Florida as did 
Katherine Kelly Carlin, Anne McCormack Fennessy. and Florence Raymond 
Morano I took a wonderful weekend trip to St. Augustine, a city that I had 
longed to visit all my life I recommend it highly for its font of historical and 
spiritual enrichment - and the "bed and breakfasts" are fantasticl Mary 
Whelan Phelan was our sole representative at the Spring Luncheon. Thanks. 
Mary We touched base with a few classmates: Kay Frey Lynch, Kay Kelly 
Carlin. Winifred McMahon and Helen Coughlin Worthley They send 
greetings to all Mildred Hines Ryan and Mary Whelan Phelan had a chance 
to chat at a luncheon at the home of Margaret Langan McDermott '34 In

Fond thoughts of his alma mater prompted Steven Cody 
to visit St. Joseph's College during a recent trip to New 
York for the christening of his niece. Now a psychology 
professor himself, Steve spent part of the day teaching 
classes in Abnormal and Introductory Psychology in the 
same classrooms where he began his own studies in 
psychology years ago. 

In 1971, his senior year in high school, Steven attended 
Open School Day at St. Joseph's and found a staff truly 
interested in him and his desire for a career in psychology. 
At Christ the King High School in Queens, Steve had 
taken a first course in Psychology, and that initial 
exposure was to set his career path for him. 

Steve matriculated at St. Joseph's in September of 1971 
and began four years of "mostly" serious study. He was a 
brilliant student, a member of Delta Epsilon Sigma, a 
permanent member of Sigma Iota Chi, and he was on the 
Dean's List in 1973, 1974, and 1975. Steve received his 
bachelor's degree in 1975, magna cum laude, and earned 
Departmental Honors in Psychology. He also received the 
J. Gardner Conroy Award for Excellence in Philosophy. 

Assessing his four years at the college, Steve said that the 
liberal arts base and philosophical preparation he 
acquired prepared him well to function independently as 
a graduate student. Having seen what class sizes can be 
like in larger schools, he is more appreciative than ever of 
the personalized atmosphere he enjoyed at St. Joseph's 
and the intellectual freedom it accorded him. 

Steve started graduate school in 1976 in the doctoral 
clinical program at the University of Connecticut, and 
took immense pleasure in the opportunity to immerse 
himself in his favorite subject, in the company of talented 
and enthusiastic colleagues. After two years of basic 
training, he went to Albany Medical Center in New York 
for a year's internship, specializing in behavioral 
medicine and neuropsychology. He then returned to 
Connecticut for three more years of research and training. 

In 1982, Steve started teaching in the Psychology 
program at Marshall University in Huntington, West 
Virginia. He then spent two years teaching at Morehead 
State University in Kentucky. In 1988, he was recruited by 
the School of Medicine at Marshall University, returning 
there to take the position of Assistant Professor of Medical 
Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry, and Adjunct 
Professor of Psychology in the Department of Psychology. 
After his first year, he was named Course Director for both 
of the medical schools' basic psychiatry courses, Be- 
havioral Medicine and Psychopathology . He is one of very 
few psychologists in the entire country playing that kind 

of role in a medical school curriculum. 

Steve is also Director of the Neuropsychology Service 
for the School of Medicine, and Acting Director of 
Psychology at Huntington State Hospital. He is consulting 
neuropsychologist for the West Virginia Rehabilitation 
Center, Huntington State Hospital, Hungtinton VA 
Medical Center, and the Hanshaw Geriatric Center. 

Steve has presented papers at meetings of the American 
Psychological Association, the National Academy of 
Neuropsychology, the Kentucky Academy of Sciences, 
and other professional organizations. This past year he 
coauthored a chapter on "Neurological Disorders in the 
Elderly" for a forthcoming book on developmental 
neuropsychology, and a chapter on "Intellectual and 
Neuropsychological Assessment" for a forthcoming book 
on behavioral medicine. 

In 1977, Steve married Evelyn Pupplo (73), who was a 
math major at St. Joseph's. They had taken a few courses 
together and were good friends while at college. Evelyn 
joined the Peace Corps after graduating and taught math 
in Ghana, in western Africa, from 1973 to 1975, before 
starting graduate work in mathematics at SUNY Albany. 
Steven and Evelyn had kept in touch all along, and shortly 
before Steve started graduate school he wrote to Evelyn 
suggesting that they meet again. A letter from Evelyn to 
Steve, suggesting the same thing, crossed his in the mail! 

They were married a year later and made their home in 
Connecticut, moving to West Virginia in 1982 when Steve 
first went to work for Marshall University. Evelyn taught 
mathematics at Rio Grande University in Ohio (within 
commuting distance) for a year and then decided to pursue 
her doctorate in mathematics at the University of 
Kentucky. For three years, she lived in Lexington, 
Kentucky, and he lived in Huntington. West Virginia, 
spending weekends together. When Steve left Marshall for 
Morehead State, they were able to put an end to the "long 
distance" aspect of their marriage. 

In the spring of 1988, Evelyn took some time off from 
working on her dissertation to have their daughter 
Stephanie Arline, born on November 17, 1988. It turned 
out that Stephanie was the first of three grandchildren 
Steve's mother was to enjoy in the space of a year. The 
Cody household also includes a trio of dogs - a German 
Shepherd now getting along in years and a pair of 
hyperactive Norwegian Elkhounds, each two years old. 

This fall finds Evelyn finishing her dissertation for the 
doctorate in mathematics at the University of Kentucky, 
and teaching at Marshall University as Assistant Professor 
of Mathematics. 




Mary Francis Kiernan loved children. She spent her life 
and fulfilled her religious vocation caring for little ones, 
directing child care institutions, guiding and organizing 
child care workers, leading, supervising, counselling, always 
with her focus on the individual child. 

Mary was born and raised in Brooklyn, an ardent 
Dodger fan until the team left the borough. She majored in 
Early Childhood Education at St. Joseph's, receiving her 
bachelor's degree in 1939. After a year of graduate study at 
Columbia she entered the Dominican community at 
Sparkill, NY, in 1940 and took her final vows there in 1947. 

In 1942 the young sister started the first kindergarten at 
St. John Chrysostom school in the Bronx. She was a 
natural with children who responded to her with 
openness and trust. 

Responding to the need for social workers in the child 
care field, sister enrolled in the Fordham University 
School of Social Service and in 1 946 received her degree in 
MSW. For the next twenty years she was a social worker, 
then supervisor of Social Service at St. Agnes School in 
Sparkill and Cardinal McCloskey Home and School in 
White Plains. 

Meanwhile Sr. Mary completed the requirements for 
psychiatric social worker, and initiated therapeutic 
programs for emotionally wounded children at both 
McCloskey and St. Agnes. 

New York Catholic Charities recognized her abilities 
and recruited her for the diocesan Department of Child 
Care. There she initiated, organized and developed the 
Central Referral Unit, which coordinated intake services 
for the 21 child care agencies operating in the diocese. 

But she preferred more direct contact with children and 
their families. She became Director of the McCloskey city 
office on 149th Street, Bronx, where she organized the 
social service department to meet the needs of families 

Sister Mary Kiernan O.P. '39 

whose children were placed outside the city. She was made 
Executive Director of the McCloskey Home in 1972 but 
resigned after a year to become Assistant Director so that 
she could be more directly involved with the residential 
group home and foster care programs, and with com- 
munity groups concerned with delinquency prevention 

One of Sr. Mary's most significant activities was her 
effort to raise the status of the primary child-care workers. 
She knew herself what it was to be charged, not only with 
minding, but feeding, clothing, listening to and consoling 
a score or more of rambunctious little ones. She knew it 
was neither easy nor unimportant. She helped organize 
and served as first Vice-President of the New York 
Association of Child Care Workers. She chaired the Child 
Care Program at Dutchess County Community College, 
organizing courses, teaching, and supervising field work. 
She continued this work as coordinator of the Center for 
Families and Children's Services at the Fordham School of 
Social Service. Sr. Mary knew that better trained child care 
workers, with professional status, would result in better 
care for children. 

Sr. Mary's last assignment was at the Sparkill Dominican 
Convent as program director of Thorpe Village, a Senior 
Citizen Apartment complex on the convent grounds. Her 
experience, her wisdom, her energy and her humor 
vitalized the programs there, and made her as much loved 
by the elderly as she had been by the children. 

Sr. Mary Kiernan died on October 22, 1 989. A number of 
the Class of '39 journeyed to Sparkill to be present at her 
funeral Mass and burial. Afterwards they enjoyed the 
hospitality of the Dominican Sisters and together shared 
special memories of their well-loved classmate.

A Day of Recollection 

St. Joseph's College held a Day of Recollection for 
alumni and friends on October 1, 1989, at the college's 
Clinton Hill campus. Virginia Kirby Brown guided the 
group, giving them the opportunity, first of all, to reflect 
where they were in their family life cycles. She effectively 
had them review what transitions they had already 
accomplished. They then reflected on what growths 
resulted from these passages. The use of slides and charts 

helped in recall of the past and meaningful questions 
elicited answers for this self-examination. A luncheon was 
served at noon and the day ended with Mass celebrated at 
three o'clock by Father Peter De Sanctis, Chaplain at 
Methodist Hospital. Those who attended thoroughly 
enjoyed the day and several suggested that it should be an 
annual event on our calendar.

Norman and I'ickie Tortorelli Morey by the statue of Our 
Lady in front of St. James Church in Medugorje, Yugoslavia. 

My adventurous life, after leaving St. Joseph's, started 
the September after graduation in 1953 when I married 
Norm. In my senior year I had taken a marriage course 
with Father Charles Diviney and had never forgotten his 
words: "The person you marry will decide whether or not 
you get into heaven." Though there was tremendous 
disparity in our education and background, I knew Norm 
Morey was the one person who could possibly do it. My 
parents were not so convinced, since he was a paratrooper 
at the time. 

I must admit life was sometimes difficult. We moved 
often, had little money because Norm was struggling 
through the enlisted ranks, and within seven years we had 
four children, two boys and two girls. We lived one year in 
Puerto Rico. By that time Norm had switched to the Air 
Force and had obtained a GED high school equivalency 
diploma. In 1961 he was transferred to Plattsburgh AFB 
and despite a hectic schedule (he was working midnight 
shifts and I was teaching in a local high school) we both 
started taking courses at SUNY, he for a bachelor's degree 
and I for a master's. 

In late 1962, Norm was called to serve an isolated tour 
for 13 months in Korea and Vietnam. I continued to teach 
and to work on the master's. On his return in early 1964, 
we moved to Homestead, Florida, his next assignment. I 
began teaching there and that summer returned to New 
York to finish the requirements for my master's degree. I 
lived in the dorm and we left the boys with my parents in 
Queens. The girls stayed with Norm in Florida. Again, in 
1965, Norm went to Vietnam, but only for 5'4 months. 

Our next assignment in 1966, to Torrejon Air Base just 
outside of Madrid, Spain, was a dream. I taught 
Americans at the high school on base, with the bonus of 
participating in host nation tours with my students. With 
the blessings of the Catholic chaplain, Norm and I 
organized the music and started a special folk mass for the 
youth of the parish, our son Art, and two of his friends 
playing the guitars. We also conducted combined CCD 
classes for the high school juniors and seniors. During the 
summers and on school vacations, we drove all over Spain 
and much of Western Europe, the six of us, either staying 
in paradore in Spain or sleeping in a tent, the most 
economical means at the time. We had many memorable 

In 1970, Norm received orders to Dover AFB in 
Delaware. We were there a year and I taught in a local high 

school. Norm then decided to retire and we chose to live 
in Peru, New York, where we built a house. I returned to 
teaching in the same system where I'd taught in the early 
60's. From 1971 to 1980 we actually stayed in one place. 
During that time our three oldest children were married, 
and we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary by 
going on a Caribbean cruise. 

Wanderlust and opportunity combined for a move in 
1980. Norm accepted an assignment as a civilian for the 
Department of Defense in Sembach, West Germany. Our 
unmarried child, Christopher, was at West Point and no 
longer living at home. We agreed that all our children and 
their spouses would come over to visit us at least once 
during our three-year tour there; it seemed like a good 
move. Though I was sorry to leave the students and 
faculty, I resigned my tenured teaching position. I'd been 
honored in 1979 when the class I was advisor to, for four 
years, dedicated their year book to me. But I was looking 
forward to our new venture. 

We traveled a great deal either in connection with 
Norm's job or for pleasure, every chance we could. We had 
just returned from a trip to the Soviet Union in 1981 when 
we learned that our oldest daughter, Bernadette, had 
drowned in a freak accident. It was a double tragedy 
because she was in her last month of pregnancy; we also 
lost a grandson. Through the Red Cross we were able to 
secure space immediately on a government plane back to 
the states, and numb with grief, attended our daughter's 
wake and funeral in Florida. In the months that followed 
only my faith upheld me. 

Before I attended St. Joseph's I had a public school 
education with only perfunctory attendance in released 
time and CCD instructions. It was a minor miracle that I 
selected St. Joe's at all. I was tired of a large institution, 
having attended New York City public high school, and I 
was looking around for a small college. I know now that 
the most valuable part of my education at St. Joe's was in 
the awakening of a religious spirit within me, not only 
through the required theology and philosophy courses, 
but in the example of my classmates and the faculty. Ever 
since, that four year experience has stood me in good stead, 
especially since the death of Bernadette. 

We returned to Germany. Trying to focus my life away 
from our tragedy, I started teaching part time for the 
University of Maryland at a U.S. Army post in

Benjamin Adetola '89GS 

Benjamin Adetola, the flag-bearer of St. Joseph's 
College 1989 graduating class, has matriculated in the 
School of Public Health and Health Policies at Yale 
University's College of Medicine. 

A husband and father of five, Benjamin was frequently 
on the Dean's List and received his Bachelor of Science 
degree in Management of Human Resources from the 
General Studies Division of St. Joseph's. He plans to work 
for the World Health Organization, writing health 
policies to improve living conditions in Third World 

Benjamin remembers the misery he encountered while 
Vice President of International Operations for a Nigerian- 
based cosmetic manufacturer; many Africans living in 
sickness because of unsanitary and crowded conditions; 
families sharing one room shanties without heat; 
communities destroyed by AIDS and other diseases. "They 
live a grim existence," he says, and has vowed to one day 
help these people. 

A revolution in Nigeria forced Benjamin Adetola to flee 
and he returned to the United States intent on pursuing an 


education in Public Health. He had no idea what college 
would meet his needs. His wife, Princess Eliza Adetola, 
who received her BS from St. Joseph's in 1981, suggested 
that he try her college. "So I applied to St. Joseph's and 
have never once regretted this decision. The staff 
understood older students like myself," says Benjamin, 
"and the professors helped me to realize that I was not too 
old." Benjamin developed a close relationship with his 
professors both in and out of the classroom. It was this 
closeness with Dr. Margaret Jennings that helped him to 
apply to Yale. "I didn't believe I could make it at Yale," he 
said, "but Dr. Jennings had such confidence in me that I 
began believing I could do it." 

Yale University has awarded Benjamin Adetola a 
teaching fellowship in the African-American Studies 
Department. He will teach undergraduates the Yoruba 
language. After his graduation from Yale, Benjamin 
plans to fulfill his promise to help the destitute people of 
the Third World Nations, but, though thousands of miles 
away, he says, he will never forget the college that helped 
him to pursue his ambitions.

Customs 9 Career 


Janet Labuda '74 and William Von Raab 

Our last "formal" contact with Janet Labuda, Class of 
197-4, in the pages of 1981 Alumnagram, showed her on the 
tarmac at Kennedy Airport dressed in the regulation blues 
of a Customs' Inspector. What a difference eight years 
make! The accompanying photograph show Janet with 
William von Raab, Commissioner of the United States 
Customs Service in Washington, D.C. at her office, that of 
Director, Revenue Enforcement Division, Office of 
Regulatory Audit in the Customs Headquarters Building 
on 14th and Constitution. 

Janet's progress from the tarmac to headquarters has 
been meteoric by Customs' standards. Its building blocks 
were a series of brilliant drug seizures at Kennedy Airport: 
from marijuana in hollowed-out lamps to a multi-million 
dollar heroin find in the ubiquitous false-bottomed 

Her several trips to England as a member of the Britain 
Bound Bunch, and her NYU Masters in European History 
with a British archaeology component also came in handy 
as she moved from a special operation in Miami on drug 
money laundering to a program officer position in the 
office of Inspection and Control in Washington, D.C. in 
1983. There her teaching credentials and experience were 
invaluable as she developed a joint heroin interdiction 
program between Her Majesty's Customs and Excise in 
England and U.S. Customs, represented the United States 
at the United Nations Narcotics Interdiction Training 
Seminars in New Delhi and Cairo, and coordinated field 
activities for the Operational Analysis Staffs in North 
Central and Pacific Regions. 

After a 120 day stint as the Special Assistant to the 
Deputy Commission of Customs, she was appointed the 
Commissioner's "Good Will Ambassador" to the Customs' 
Services in Europe. The subsequent thirteen months, 
from March 1986 through April 1987, would have made 
Odysseus pale: based in The Hague, Netherlands, Janet 
traveled through Europe in a "one-man show" capacity 
making three-week official visits to the Customs Services 
of Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Italy, Sweden the 
United Kingdom, West Germany and, of course, the 
Netherlands. In addition, she taught two narcotics inter- 

diction courses to the entire Hungarian Customs airport 
staff, after which she received an operational Inspector's 
badge making her an honorary member of the Hungarian 
Customs Service. 

Upon her return to the United States, Janet chose an 
assignment in Inspection and Control and developed the 
Maritime Container Narcotics Interdiction Strategy. 
Shortly after its implementation, 6900 pounds of cocaine 
were seized from one container shipment! Charged by this 
type of success, Janet's star shone even more brightly; she 
joined the Commissioner's Narcotics Interdiction Staff 
and dealt with Federal Government Agency Heads, i.e. the 
Coast Guard, FBI, DEA, INS and other acrostics! Within 
months she helped develop the Zero Tolerance anti-drug 
use program and after attending congressional hearings 
with the Commissioner became its full-time Ombudsman 
with the duty to explain the sanctions and to apply the law 
fairly and equitably. 

On call day and night, Janet added to a host of 
wonderful stories, one of the more amusing being the 
conversation with a Canadian octogenarian who was 
ah. lid her Metamucil would be seized in crack-downs at 
the border. 

Media enquiries abounded and Janet found herself 
making live TV and radio broadcasts in the United States 
and Canada, and appearing on the front page of USA 
Today, June 8, 1988. She was promoted to a Division 
Director (GM-15) last April and now she and her staff 
wrestle with global trade issues and with Trade Act 
enforcement for Customs brokers and importers to ensure 
that the United States government is not being defrauded 
of its rightful import duties. 

At home in a spacious Woodbridge, Virginia, townhouse. 
Janet relaxes by tending a beautiful rose garden, entertain- 
ing two nephews, and playing hostess with the mostest to 
some of her many European and Asian friends who travel 
to the United States. 

She has remembered SJC recently in a most unusual 
way: she hired her own SJC composition teacher, 
Margaret Jennings, to conduct a five-day training course 
to sharpen the writing skills of the regulatory audit staff. 

Margaret Jennings, PhD 




Harold "Mike" Bailey , 86S 

Harold Bailey '86, a graduate of the Suffolk Campus, is 
teaching in the Lower Kuskokwim School District, 
located in the southwestern section of Alaska. The largest 
school district in the state, it encompasses 21 villages as 
well as three schools in Bethel, the District Headquarters. 
It is spread over an area the size of Pennsylvania and 220 
teachers serve 2,750 students in grades kindergarten 
through twelfth year. 

The land in that area is flat and marked by lakes and 
marshlands, with muddy conditions during the summer, 
which necessitates the use of rubber boots. Winter 
temperatures go as low as 30 to 40 degrees below zero, with 
a wind chill factor of minus 80 to 100 degrees. 

Mike, as he is better known, lives in a Cupic (pronounced 
Joo-p ik) Eskimo village named Mekoryuk, on an island 
called Nunivak in the Bering Sea. He teaches Language 
Arts and Social Studies to seventeen high school students. 
There is one other teacher in the high school, one teacher 
for kingergarten through fourth grade and one for grades 
five through eight. There is also a Site Administrator. 

Mike's courses include World History, Reading, 
English I & II, English III & IV, Alaskan Studies, and a 
subject called A.N.C.S.A., which is the Alaska Native 
Claims Settlement Act wherein the native population of 
Alaska received 44 million acres of Alaskan land, 1 billion 
dollars, and the creation of 13 native regional corporations 
to manage the land and money. He is also cross country 
coach. All travel between villages is by bush plane and one 
literally travels across country for a cross-country meet or 
basketball game. 

The village of Mekoryuk is a friendly one consisting of 
approximately 140 people. Natives are employed by 
government, school and native corporations. Many 
natives still choose to practice subsistence living. They 
hunt muskoxen, geese and reindeer, and fish often for 
trout, salmon and halibut. They also trap arctic fox. 

How did Mike obtain this position? We go back to 
December 1979 when he had earned enough high school 
credits and opted to join the Marine Corps in which he 
served until September 1982. (He did get leave in June 

1980 to receive his diploma from Babylon High School.) 

When he left the service Mike worked as a gas station 
manager but felt the need for further education, which 
brought him to St. Joseph's College. In May 1986 he 
earned a bachelor's degree in History. 

At SJC Mike was a member of the History Club, a 
representative on the Student Council, and writer for the 
student newspaper. In the summer of '88, he participated 
in the European Cultural History Program of Eastern 
Michigan University and travelled, with 30 other students 
from the USA, Canada and Europe, visiting museums and 
historic sites of East Germany, Czechoslovakia, Austria, 
Italy and Greece. Mike earned 3 credits each in Art 
Appreciation and History of 20th Century Europe. 

From January 1987 to May 1989, Mike worked for 
Nassau Center for the Developmentally Disabled as a 
Habilitation Specialist in conjunction with therapists, 
social workers, psychologist, the nursing staff and house 
managers. Concurrently, he worked sixteen months as a 
Case Manager for the Sunrise Support System in 
Amityville, acting as a link to legal and medical services 
for the emotionally impaired. 

Always adventurous, Mike enjoyed two weeks in the 
summer of '88, travelling by car around Ireland and being 
present at Dublin's Millenium Celebration. In May 1989, 
Mike was off again, driving up through Canada to 
Fairbanks, Alaska, enjoying the extraordinary sights and 
the many beautiful creatures along the way. Arriving at 
Fairbanks, he enrolled at the University in classes in 
Alaskan History, Native Culture, and Music Appreciation. 
He became interested in the Alaska Teacher Placement 
Program touted at one of the three job fairs held during 
the summer and on applying was assigned to Meyoryuk. 

As for the future, Mike has to decide among three 
things: returning to Mekoryuk, earning a master's degree, 
or fulfilling another dream to work in the Faith 
Community of Covenant House as a one-year volunteer. 

Mike is single with no serious relationships but hopes 
to find someone who enjoys taking chances, adventure, 
and helping others.

The Toughest Job Vll Ever Learn From 

"Peace Corps. . . the toughest job you'll ever love." 
Smile when you say that. For even though living and 
working in a culture so very different from your own can 
be ever so taxing, the return you get is ever so rewarding. 
Nowhere is this paradox more apparent than in the 
constant cross-cultural confusion, the small misunder- 
standings between myself and the Papua New Guinea 
nationals which occur almost daily. These breakdowns in 
communication can sometimes drive you to pull out your 
hair which, due to the lack of barbers in "the bush", can 
grow quite long. But more often, they make you laugh 
with a strange combination of humor and insight, at the 
differences between Western and Melanesian cultures. 

Papua New Guinea is one fascinating place. Occupying 
the eastern half of the island of New Guinea, P. N.G. is the 
largest country in Melanesia. Though the population is a 
mere 3 million, this country contains a vast array of 
cultures; well over 700 different tribal groups and 
languages have been documented. These tribes are spread 
out over three main areas: the Coast - where the people are 
friendly even if the sun is not; the Islands (Bougainville, 
Manus, New Britain and New Ireland) - with local color 
right out of Tales of the South Pacific; and the Highlands- 
where the richness in minerals rivals the richness of 

My Peace Corps assignment is as an English Teacher at 
Kagua High School in the Southern Highlands. It is here 
that I try my best to educate the Papua New Guineans in 
my charge, putting to good use everything Sr. Margaret 
Buckley and Sr. John Raymond taught me. 

The kids here are under immense pressure from their 
villages. The villagers pool their money and send the kids 
to school with the understanding that they will get jobs 
and help to support the village. But the problem is that 

there are simply not enough jobs. Only 15°o of the Grade 
10 graduates will go on to further education or get a job. 

I suppose that my real task here is to instill some pride 
into these children, to instill in them the notion that there 
is no shame in going back to the village. I try to make them 
see that it is they who have been trained in modern 
agricultural techniques, it is they who can write a business 
letter in English, it is they who can bring development to 
their villages. 

Though the homesickness still strikes deep at times, I've 
settled in nicely. In fact, I no longer look at the calendar 
and cry out, "Oh no! I've got 2 more years to go!" Instead 
it's, "Oh no! I've got only 12 months left!" 

Yes, I've become quite used to this place called Kagua. 
The other day I met a grandfather of one of my students on 
the road. I was conversing with him in my slowly 
improving Tok Pisin (Melanesian Pidgin - lingua franca 
of P. N.G.) and it was live whole minutes before I realized 
that the man had a piece of wood through his pierced nose 
and wore nothing except his grass skirt. It just goes to 
show you that beyond the surface there is really not much 
difference between the so-called "civilized man" and the 
so-called "primitive". 

If that old man were to ask me what I am getting out of 
this Peace Corps experience, I would tell him: "Mi kisim 
wanpela bikpela save - olgeta man long olgeta pies i stap 
olsem." ("I am getting an understanding - an under- 
standing that people are the same everywhere.' 

The more I think about it, the more I realize that there is 
another understanding dawning on me. It paradoxically 
falls in line with "the toughest job you'll ever love." This 
world we live on is so much bigger and smaller than I ever

Eleanor O'Boyle, RN 

Eleanor Frey O'Boyle, RN, Clinical Nurse Specialist, 
was honored at a special Award Ceremony and Reception 
on April 28, as Long Island's "Nurse of Distinction," - the 
first such award initiated and given by the State 
Legislature. With seven other nominees, Eleanor was 
feted at a gala luncheon in Albany. More than 700 eminent 
nurses and health professionals attended. 

Out of 334 nominations submitted by health care 
facilities and professionals, eight winners were chosen by 
regional peer review committees. A panel of 12 nursing 
and health care specialists picked the statewide winner, 
citing her as a "role model who could attract people into 

Concerned to restore dignity to seniors, Gerontological 
nurse, Eleanor O'Boyle battles misconceptions about 
aging, through a network of community programs 
ranging from senior wellness to caregiver support. A 
practioner, educator and researcher at Mercy Hospital, she 
is piloting programs on fall prevention and she coaches 
senior citizens' groups on weight and stress management, 
safety and memory enhancement. "It's wonderful," she 
says, "to see people take responsibility for their own 
health." Eleanor tells her own story: 

I was born in the Bronx, the oldest daughter of a family 
that would eventually have six girls, no brothers. My 
father died when I was 1 1 and my youngest sister 2, so ours 
was a household of women. 

I spent the first twelve school years in parochial schools: 
St. Helena, and St. Catherine Academy. In spite of my 
teacher's objections and my mother's doubts, I chose 
nursing as a profession, and I have never once regretted the 
decision. I spent three happy and busy years at Grasslands 
Hospital in Westchester County and left there after 
graduation to work at Jacobi Hospital in the Bronx. 

I met my husband soon after graduation and we married 
after a short courtship - again despite the doubts of my 
mother. We recently celebrated our twenty-seventh 
anniversary! We've had a busy and unconventional 
twenty-seven years. Both of us returned to college as adults 
and each supported the other, struggling through term 
papers, book reports and late night classes. 

Our children grew up amid this chaos and have 
survived - in fact thrived very nicely. We have four natural 
children: Anita, 26, a SUNY Geneseo graduate, works as a 
manager for trade shows in New York City; Edward, 25, 
graduate of Virginia University, is an Assistant Vice 



President for Barclay Bank; Denise, 22, will graduate from 
St. Joseph's in December 1989, and Christopher, 17, a 
senior at Sayville High School. We also have two 
Vietnamese children who have been with us since 1980, 
Huy, 24, who works for Nature's Bounty and Thu, 19, a 
senior at Sayville High School. 

I have worked as a nurse since I became one - nights, 
evenings, summers, etc., on a part-time basis. Our 
children were cared for by their father when I wasn't 
home. He could do it all - change diapers, go to PTA 
meetings, drive in car pools, sponge a fevered brow, make 
terrific sloppy joes, etc.. 

I've enjoyed my work and my schooling. St. Joseph's 
gave me the confidence to say "I can" and my bosses at 
Mercy Hospital gave me the opportunity to do all the 
things I thought I could do. I work with older people and 
we have a special bond - we learn from each other, find joy 
in each other, and praise one another. 

Accomplishments of which I am especially proud are: 

The Caregiver Program - Education and support for 
those who care for the older adult. Most caregivers I have 
seen, endure great physical and psycholocial deprivation 
in order to care for their parents or other loved ones. They 
receive much empty praise and little real help from their 
families, friends, co-workers, religious organizations and 
the government. 

The Gerontological Nursing Program - This not only 
prepares 35 or 40 registered nurses per year to take the 
American Nurse Association examination in Geron- 
tological Nursing, but also supports excellence in nursing 
practice in all clinical settings, and autonomy and 
professional decision-making for the nurse who works 
with the elderly. Gerontological Nursing was always 
considered very low-status perhaps a reflection of the 
value that is placed on older adults in our society. Not so 
any more. Gerontological Nursing has come into its own, 
as well it should, considering that almost thirty million 
Americans are now over sixty-five and nurses play an ever 
more important role in their lives because of their need for 
care rather than cure. 

Wellness program for Older Adults - started three years 
ago when wellness for older adults was snickered at. "How 
is it possible," people asked, "to be old and well at the 
same time? Don't old and sick go together?" We're 
delighted to say, "Absolutely no!". In fact the capacity of 
our older folks for life-style changes, education and

Gloria Zvinglis '83GS 

Gloria Zvinglis matriculated at the Patchogue Campus 
in 1978 and in 1983 received her Bachelor of Science 
Degree in Community Health. She is now a Nursing 
Supervisor at Brunswick Medical Center, working with 
substance abusers at Brunswick House. She is also 
studying at New York Institute of Technology in Old 
Westbury, majoring in Substance Abuse and expects to 
receive her Master's in Professional Human Relations in 
January 1990. 

Gloria attributes much of her success in life to her 
Catholic education, having graduated from Little Flower 
Elementary School in Woodside, and from Bishop 
McDonnell High School in Brooklyn where "we were 
taught to be valiant women," she says. When the second of 
her two daughters started school, she decided to become a 
Licensed Practical nurse. She graduated from Huntington 
Hospital in 1962 with an Associate degree in Applied 
Science. Next came Marymount College and then on to St. 
Joseph's College. 

"I am 62 years old," she writes, "love school, love 
nursing. When I was counselled before graduation I was 
asked, 'Why would a woman your age want to go to 
school? And who would hire you? The company would 
not want to spend the money on benefits.' I ignored these 
comments and as a result I received a Nursing Supervisor's 
position and I am furthering my education at New York 
Institute of Technology, pursuing my Master's degree. 
Thank you St. Joseph's and all your teaching staff - you 
were wonderful!" 

While pursuing her Master's degree, Gloria was 
admitted to the Psi Chi - National Honor Society in 
Psychology in May 1988. "The greatest thrill of all was to 
have four generations of family present to applaud as I 
received this honor." The fourth generation, and the joy 
of her life are twins - a boy and a girl - who were born 3'? 
years ago to her daughter. 

Nurse of Distinction, continued 

the application of learned information is inspiring, and 
the feeling of control and the loss of helplessness brings 
giant smiles to older faces. 

The Education of Neighbors - of those in the 
community and of professional health care workers 
concerning elder abuse, neglect and maltreatment. 

We have always been in the midst of new programs at 
Mercy Hospital and we are now. 

My family continues to be happy and my new-found 
fame has enabled my husband and me to travel, so that I 
can teach others about the care of the older adult. I hope to 
return to school - for certification as a Nursing Home 
Administrator or for certification as an Alcoholism 
Counselor, specifically focused on the problem of alcohol 
misuse among older adults. 

Two years ago I returned to St. Joseph 's as an instructor. 
It was a strange feeling but a rather nice one. I learn from 
my students. I have met some very smart and creative 
people and it is a distinct pleasure to see adults reach their 
full potential. 

This past year has been exciting - with the Nurse of 
Distinction Award, with inclusion in "Who's Who 
Among American Nurses," with the presentation of my 
research projects at the Center for the Advancement of 
Nursing Practice, with membership in Sigma Meta Tau, 
the Nursing Honor Society. Sometimes I have to pinch 
myself to be sure it's all happening to me. Perhaps the fact 
that I'm really quite ordinary will help others to believe "I 
can" too. I believe as Robert Kennedy did, that "I see 
things as they could be and ask 'why not?'"

Veronica Wazny Murphy '64 

When I remember St. Joseph's, I think of the friends I 
had there, but I also remember two teachers who greatly 
influenced my life. Sister Therese Marie made creativity 
and writing both parts of my everyday living. Sister Grace 
Maria confronted me with my dishonesty the one time I 
ever relied on Cliff Notes instead of reading the assigned 
literature. Beyond the embarrassment I felt at being so 
easily found out, I also learned that I could only be as 
honest with others as I was with myself. That was perhaps 
the most important lesson I ever learned. 

My first profession was teaching: one year at Franklin 
K. Lane High School in Brooklyn and another six years at 
two high schools in Toledo, Ohio. The last school, for 
emotionally disturbed adolescent women, provided the 
transition from teaching to counseling, my second career. 
I earned my Master's degree in Education, serving as a 
part-time Guidance Counselor and then as a peer 
consultant for other teachers, K-8, in the Toledo Public 
School system, for thirteen years. 

I was also active in my teachers' union, serving office as 
a part time staff member and as associate editor of union 
publications. As a teacher advocate, I representated union 
members at public-agency hearings. Other duties included 
negotiating, drafting contract language, lobbying and 
general political activism. I counseled and assisted teachers 
both with classroom concerns and with personal problems. 
My union consultation experiences led me to law school 
in 1978. 

1978 was also the year of the second Toledo teachers' 
strike and I resigned all my union positions in order to 
relieve myself of any obligation of loyalty to the elected 
leadership so that I could act independently. 

When I began law school that fall, my general intention 
was to use my law degree within the context of education 
or the labor movement rather than to become a practicing 
lawyer. During law school I continued to work full time in 
the schools and part time writing for the union and 
editing. I attended night classes four to five times a week 
year round and earned my JD, Juris Doctorate, in four and 
a half years. During the last three summers of law school, I 
clerked for a public interest firm doing poverty law. That 
first summer, the executive director told me there would be 
a place for me in the firm after law school if I were 
interested. But I continued to tell myself that I was 
independent and could succeed alone. 

I graduated from law school and received the Dean's 
Award. I took and failed the State Bar examination twice, 
by less than one percent, before passing it on the third try, 
with points to spare. Once I passed the Bar exam and was 
sworn in as a licensed attorney and officer of the court, I 
resigned form the school system, withdrew my retirement 
contributions, rented space, hung out my shingle and 
began to practice law. About two weeks after I opened my 
office, I received a telephone call from the senior partner in 
a firm I respected, inviting me to interview for an associate's 
position as yet unadvertised -but I chose to go it alone. 

To help keep myself financially afloat during the next 
two years, while I continued to build my business, I sent 
writing samples to the firm mentioned above so that it 
might consider me for the kind of piece-meal work large 
firms sometimes farm out. I received two research projects 
from one of the partners. I did ghost writing and editing for 
more experienced lawyers and developed and taught a 
writing refresher course for lawyers and support staff for 
the firm where I'd clerked. 

Because of violence I experienced in two years of married 
life, I divorced my husband. Since I began practicing law 
five years ago, I have done pro bono (lawyers' volunteer) 
work with the residents of Bethany House, a long-term 
shelter for domestic violence victims and their children. I 
also mediate disputes between couples and among 
neighbors for the municipal court once a month and accept 
invitations to speak on various legal topics from groups 
willing to make donations to Bethany. 

Mine remains a general practice - mostly civil, but also 
criminal - in federal, state and municipal courts. I find 
myself being drawn into juvenile court by the hope of truly 
turning lives around there - helping youngsters free 
themselves from substance abuse, reuniting troubled 
families, protecting endangered children. I'm the working- 
people's lawyer I wanted to be - the legal equivalent of the 
old-fashioned country doctor "G.P. ." There are coloring 
books and crayons on hand for children who accompany 
clients to my office. 

For about two years, I've done public readings of my 
poetry and just this month entered some in a local 
competition. My life bears little resemblance to the one I 
expected in adolescence and is richer, fuller and happier 
than anything I was then capable of dreaming.

of his child as he boards the school bus? School bus safety 
is a major concern also of teachers and administrators. 
Awareness and adherence to procedures of waiting for,

out constantly with the children. 

Mary Beth Stevenson Malloy 73, a certified teacher, was 
appointed Bus Safety Specialist for BOCES III. This term

Great JPets 

Helen relaxing at the salon! 

Helen Golden Brown '45 wrote about her geese in the 
Summer '81 issue of Alumnagram. She still has two 
ganders, but her female goose died last winter. The two 
ganders, now 17 years old, are such pets - they still like to 
be picked up. The Browns own 60 acres in upstate New- 
York, and have set up the land as a nature habitat by 
planting pines, putting in a pond and cutting trails. Now 
she tells of her latest acquisitions. 

In 1981 after the death of our dog, we decided to try a 
different type of pet. My husband, Lew, had always had a 
yen for a parrot, so to Albany we went and came home 
with an orange wing amazon who became Sam. In the 
course of next year, we came home with a Severe macaw 
named Lady, a Greenwing Macaw, named Holly, a pair of 
Gold mantled rosellas and three parakeets. We were given 
Mimi, a military macaw, by a friend. 

Cages are a necessity and the cages for the two big 
macaws are of iron 6'3" high. A macaw can chew through 
anything weaker than iron. The macaws, parrot and 
rosellas were all wild, imported birds, not hand raised, 
which meant we had patiently to train them to accept us as 
friends. Lew and I have always disliked teaching animals 
"cute tricks" and instead gave them freedom to use their 
own intelligence. 

Mimi found that the kitchen sink was the best place to 
bathe. Opening cupboard doors was simple and jumping 
on a loaf of bread was fun. Holly found that sitting on a 
chair and preening my hair was a friendly thing to do and 
made me look as though I had received a shot of electricity. 
Sammy discovered that an antique horsehead on the 
mantle was good place to survey his domain. He also 
prided himself on saying, "I'm a good boy," from the top 
of a white silk lampshade. 

We don't clip wings, so our birds can fly where they 
choose inside the house. The flash of colors when they fly 
is lovely, although Sammy is a bit of a "hot" flyer. Mimi is 
jealous of the other birds so her free time is in the morning 
when we share breakfast. She enjoys tasting cereal, toast 
and juice. She climbs down the chair and explores the 
kitchen and sun porch. 

In the evening, Sam, Lady and Holly are free and I 
sometimes feel like a tree when they land on me after a 

I have learned that preening a bird's head or rubbing the 
preen gland on a macaw's back creates euphoria in the 

I haul feed, walnuts, peanuts and fruit, vacuum 
frequently and clean cages, but in turn I get a lot of 
affection and a chance to be close to some of the most 
beautiful creatures on God's earth.

This Mouse Won 't Byte 

Patricia Dittmer at the Dillon Center computer 

There is a mouse in the Dillon Child Study Center at St. 
Joseph's College, but the preschoolers in Sr. Patricia 
Dittmer's class are not worried because they know this 
mouse won't bite. Indeed this "mouse" is just a computer 
term for the communication device on the Center's new 
Apple II computer. 

The Apple II is part of a teaching program designed by 
Sr. Patricia Dittmer and Sr. Helen Kearney, Director of the 
Dillon Center. The goal of the program is to help children 
become computer literate through the development and 
utilitzation of programs appropriate for young children 
and consistent with the principles of good early childhood 

Apple II adds to the rich environment at Dillon Center 
which includes many experiences that involve sight, 
sound, touch, taste and smell, adult-child and child-child 
conversations, as well as an array of other age-appropriate 

activities. The computer supplements but does not 
substitute for experiences in which children can discover 
with all their senses. This special children's program is 
designed to help nurture creative expression while at the 
same time familiarizing them with the computer. 

The emphasis is to learn by doing. There is Ricky, for 
example, a five-year old, who uses the Apple's drawing 
and coloring program to make colorful computer 
creations. By selecting from among the spectrum of colors 
on the computer's panel, Ricky chooses a color to draw 
with, much as he would select a crayon. With a circular 
slide of the computer's mouse, Ricky creates corresponding 
circular figures on the computer screen. When the 
drawing is complete, he taps a button and watches as the 
printer prints a color copy of his creation - a lasting 
reminder to the child that he can be creative with a 

Though the program is still in its developmental stage, 
Sr. Patricia and Sr. Helen are quite satisfied with the 
results so far. "The children are becoming very confident 
with the computer, have increased their thinking and 
creative abilities and are enjoying themselves in the 
process," says Sr. Patricia. 

The Dillon Child Study Center was established in 1934 
as a laboratory for St. Joseph's College students in the 
Child Study Department. An integral part of the Child 
Study program, the center provides a strong model for 
students preparing to be teachers, child psychologists or 
early childhood specialists. Teacher education programs 
in the Child Study Department are registered with the 
New York State Education Department for Certification 
in Early Childhood, Elementary and Special Education.

Adventurous Life, continued 

Kaiserslautern. I also taught one semester for City 
Colleges of Chicago at a radar site. I chaired the reading 
group of the German-American Women's Club of 
Kaiserslautern, an organization composed not only of 
Germans and Americans, but women from many other 
countries living in Germany. On base, I was a member of 
the CWOC, Catholic Women of the Chapel, and for a year 
was in charge of programs for the Officers' Wives Club. 

At the end of our tour, we returned to our home in Peru, 
NY, where I taught classes at Plattsburgh AFB for the local 
community college. In 1985, Norm again accepted a 
position in Ramstein, West Germany, not far from 
Sembach. I resumed membership and old friendships in 
the German-American Women's Club. Most of my 
American friends had returned to the states, but all my 
German friends were still there. I became American 
President of the club, sharing duties with my German 
counterpart, who recently visited us here in the States, 
with her husband. That position was an opportunity to 
promote in international understanding on many levels; 
personal, local and federal, because I was involved with all 
the aspects of the Club and with the federation of all the 
German-American clubs in Germany. One of the 
highlights was running the annual Pfennig basar, which 
is like a huge indoor flea market. The proceeds went half 
to German and half to American welfare. A car was 
purchased for the use of the local German Social Services, 
and on the American side, we donated to American scouts, 
Red Cross, USO and other American programs right in 
the area. 

I also attended the annual AWAG, American Women's 
Activities in Germany, conferences that bring together 
women representatives from all organizations and 
activities in Germany, a testament to the valuable 
contributions that American women are making to their 
local communities there, both military and civilian. For 

instance, Family Services at Ramstein is a place on base, 
staffed entirely by volunteers, where military families can 
sign out household items until their own houehold goods 
arrive from the States, find information regarding their 
next assignments, where lower ranks can find used 
clothing for themselves and families, where single and 
una« i ompanied military can have their stripes and patches 
sewed on free of charge, and many other needs met. 

I'm really fortunate. Most of all, I have a wonderful 
husband of 36'/2 years. (He now has four degrees.) Our 
son, Art, is a graduate of SUNY, Plattsburgh, and has a 
master's from the School of Advanced International 
Studies, Johns Hopkins University. After working for 
the Department of Agriculture in Washington, he is 
now a third year medical student at Georgetown School 
of Medicine. God bless his wife Kathy! They have four 
children, Sarah, Anna, Michael and Margaret. Lisa is a 
graduate of the S.I. Newhouse School of Journalism, 
Syracuse, and lives in Salem, NY, with husband, Jack 
Murphy, and daughter. Shannon Bernadette. Christopher, 
a West Point graduate, and now a Captain in the army, 
is stationed at Ft. Lewis, WA, but will leave this summer 
for the Naval Postgraduate school in Monterey, CA 
where he will work for two years on a master's in 
Operations Research. He, his wife, Kim and Daphne 
and Zachary presently live in Tacoma, WA. 

Since our return home to Peru last year, I've taught 
again for the local community college and I am organist 
for our church. We've been getting our house back in 
order, having had three different sets of tenants while we 
were gone. We recently returned from a visit with Chris 
and his family in Tacoma, family and are looking 
forward to a summer of seeing our other children and 
grandchildren. In November, we'll be going to 
Medjugorje, Yugolsavia, with other members of our 
parish. We're truly blest. 

A Special Order Of Business 

At the Ohio Federation of Teachers Convention held on 
March 23, 1984, the following was submitted by Delegate 
Dale Pertcheck; seconded by Delegate Dal Lawrence and 
passed by unanimous vote of the convention: 

Brothers and Sisters: 

I would urge this convention to give special 
recognition to someone for whom this is probably 
the last O.F.T. Convention, as a delegate. She has 
been a teacher for 20 years, 19 of those in the Toledo 
Public Schools. She has been an articulate, fervent, 
irrepressible advocate for all of those who are 
oppressed, especially our oppressed majority - 
women. She understands well the role of women as 
victims in our society. To those who believe that she 
has been too abrasive and too strident about women's 
issues, I say, "Walk a mile in her shoes." 

Personally, as you have witnessed at this con- 
vention, we have often disagreed. I remember well 
riding home with her from my first O.F.T. Con- 
vention, and arguing about my position in the 
union for over two hours. These disagreements have 

never affected our friendship or mutual admiration. 

She leaves us not because she enjoys teaching less. 
but, in her own words, because she has found 
something that she enjoys even more. 

She is unique. We shall never see another like her 
again. Others, in this room and elsewhere, will pick 
up the gauntlet, but they will be in the same position 
as Thomas Jefferson was when he became the 
Ambassador to France following Benjamin Franklin. 
Jefferson said that it was a lesson in humility. When 
asked, "Is it you, sir, who replace Dr. Franklin?" 
Jefferson would answer, "No one can replace Dr. 
Franklin, I am merely his successor." 

I would close by being so presumptuous as to add 
two words to another Jefferson statement, which 
best sums up the driving spirit of the person I ask 
this convention to recognize. "I have sworn upon 
the alter of God eternal hostility against all tyranny 
over the minds of men," and I would add "and 
women." Please recognize with your applause. . .

You lie there imploding with pain 

where smoked glass holds back the sun 

that warms me here on my sister's mountain 

many miles north, 

and we are still connected. 

I am waiting watch with you, 

my friend, asking only 

what do you want? 

So long as you choose to fight, 

here is my strength to add to yours. 

Help your mother lift and turn you, 

you say? 

My arms are steel and my hands velvet. 

Look through your scrapbook 

of comforts condensed from memories 

and messages from friends? 

I can turn the pages if you're tired. 

Listen to the words you place in my lap 

with which you want not to burden 

those dearest to your heart? 

Water listens well, woman of humus. 

Hold only your hand and not turn away 

when you are ready to weep 

and the shards of glass traveling through your 

veins will not allow you 

to be cradled in a loving embrace? 

I can give you that, my friend. 

I am a great coward 

in this earthsuit of mine, 

with little tolerance for physical pain, 

and have been better at confronting issues 

than people in this my span, 

but I am well acquainted with the dark. 

These great silent caverns 

you explore 

do not frighten me, 

and I will wander them with you 

as far and deep as a comrade can be 

permitted to come. 

Here is my open hand: 

trace on my palm what you want next of me 

if words are wearying you now. 

* Julia Lois Spenser Hess, 49, died of cancer on October 17, 1988. 

Julie was a consultation partner and union collegue of mine, but most of all a beloved friend.

Forbidden Fruit 

I wonder what we'd be like, 
If Eve hadn't been so nosy, 
I) she didn't taste the apple 
So deliciously sweet and rosy. 

The Good Book and the Parson 
Both tell us that we'd be 
Much stronger to fight temptation 
And all kinds of deviltry. 

But when I think what fun it is 
To be a little sinner 
I'm rather glad Eve disobeyed 
And ate that fruitful dinner. 

And as long as there's an Adam 
Who likes us weak and failing 
I'll keep on eating apples 
To make me more appealing.

Dare to Hope 

When all is said and done, my friend, 

And we've laid by all our toys. 

When we've wept the tears of sorrows 

And smiled the tears of joys; 

When all we've loved and lived for 

With a gust goes out like a flame, 

Can we treat the end 

Without flinching 

And take it just the same 

As we took the gift 

Without asking 

As part of a song to be sung? 

When the Dark Wing 

Finally folds us 

Can we say, "It's only just begun?" 

The New Yorker 

When I matriculated at St. Joseph's I chose to major in 
French and minor in Political Science because I had a yen 
to travel. I have done a great deal of traveling, mostly to 
Europe, but also in and around the United States and to 
Hawaii. Travel is still one of my favorite diversions. 

My profession, however, is that of a Secretary. For the 
past thirty-five years I have worked as an Executive 
Secretary at the New Yorker Magazine. I had the privilege 
of working for one of the founders, Raoul Fleischmann, 
whenever his secretary was on vacation, and I also worked 
for his son, Peter, for ten years when he was chairman of 
the magazine. During my years with The New Yorker, I 
have worked for two chairmen, four presidents, two 
advertising directors and one publisher. In 1985, when 
The New Yorker was bought by Advance Publications, I 
was working for both the chairman and the president and 
was certainly in the middle of things! Currently I 
coordinate the advertising small space program, oversee 
order fulfillment for a new merchandising venture, and 
supervise our gratis advertising. When President Steve 
Florio's secretary goes on vacation, I step in there. It's 
never dull. 

In 1965, I earned a master's degree in History of 
Education at New York University, thinking I might one 
day return to work with foreign students, which I had done 
for two years in the early '50's. I started studies for a 
doctoral degree in the same field, but found the pressures of 
work and study too much, so abandoned this pursuit. 
However, in 1980, I achieved the Certified Professional 
Secretary rating, passing exams in accounting, business 
law, office technology, office administration, economics 
and management, and behaviour science in business. It 
was challenging! It took two years and I'm very proud of it.

I am an active member of the Long Island Chapter of 
Professional Secretaries International. We work hard to 
encourage professionalism among secretaries, to keep 
abreast of what's going on in our profession. And we have 
fun doing it, too. Last July, I attended the International 
Convention in San Antonio - 1500 of us took over the town 
and had a great time. 

Nine years ago, after living in Manhattan all my life, I 
moved out to Bellmore, Long Island to be with my 
parents. They haven't thrown me out yet, so I guess I'm 
here to stay. I discovered Long Island Gardening and Bird 
Watching. I like the latter so much that I took the Bird 
Biology course offered by mail by Cornell's Labortory of 
Ornithology. Needlepoint keeps me occupied during the 
train commute. Twenty-three months of commuting went 
into the completion of the Metropolitan Museum's petit 
point kit of the Unicorn in Captivity! 

My four years in the drama club at St. Joe's have borne 
fruit, too. I am now lectoring regularly at St. Barnabas 
Apostle church in Bellmore. I do love getting up before a 

I keep in close touch with Joyce Hartey Scavullo '51 of 
Augusta, Georgia, and enjoyed a visit with her and 
Charles when they were on Long Island this summer. I 
also see Alice Bambrick Fucigna '50 and the family of 
Eileen Fitzgerald Noone '50. 

Next year I hope to retire and am fascinated by all the 
possibilities opening before me. 

Best of all, I became a great-aunt for the first time in 
December. After playing "Auntie Mame" to thirteen 
nieces and nephews, I can't wait to start on the next

We received a note from Sr. M. Francis Fllnn, from Marycove, Hong Kong, 
China in June to thank us for the Mass offered for her brother, Msgr. 
Dermod Flinn who died on May 22, 1 989, "Tho' I miss his visits, I feei nearer 
to him than before; I know that he is interceding for us with our Lord and 
with Our Blessed Mother," she writes. "China is in crisis, but life in Hong 
Kong is about normal However, there have been fervent prayer groups 
and peaceful demonstrations here. Our Cardinal Wu celebrated Mass for 
those killed; 1 50 priests, many Sisters, and thousands of laity were present 
at it in the Hong Kong Stadium. Do beg prayers for China!" 


August 31 st was a happy day for the Class of '24. On that summer day Rita 
Fearon Bryan, Teresa Dolan Janton, Mildred Hayes Donohue. Alice 
McGrane Feeley, Regina Munz Meyer and Mary St. John Murphy met at 

Regina's apartment in Forest Hills. Later, all enjoyed luncheon at the West 
Side Tennis Club We had not met for a few years and we exchanged a 
great deal of family news including children, grandchildren and great 
grandchildren. We remembered our departed members and Mary 
arranged to have our annual memorial mass said in October. Mary has 
been our "globe trotter" this year. In May and June, she visited California 
and Alaska, She found Alaska magnificent. During the summer she went to 
Maryland and later visited Ocean Beach, New Jersey Mary was the only 
one of our class to attend the October 1st "Reflections" at the college this 
fall. She enjoyed it very much. Rita is looking forward to a family reunion at 
Christmas time. Father Paul and George Jr. are planning a visit as well as 
Tom and Kathy and their Katie - travelling from Ojai, California. Donald 
and his family are nearby in West Palm Beach, so they will have a very good 
size reunion. Catherine Shore, one of Regina's granddaughters is a 
member of a nationwide bicycle club. They are on a three month bicycle 
trip from New York to the west coast They are greeted and welcomed at 
each of the well-planned stops. In October, Gene had a card from Kansas 
She had covered 1700 miles and had 1700 more to go, but enjoying it 
immensely. What a wonderful way for young people to see America. Tess 
announced that her 12th great grandchild, Patrick Raymond Owens 
arrived safely on October 12th.

Word from her daughter, Kathy Thomas, told us of the death of Gertrude 
Dilworth Rossworn last fall (89) "St. Joseph's College for Women was a 
very special and wonderful time in my mother's life which lasted for her 
lifetime, the joy of which was distinctly transferred to all her loved ones," 
she wrote. Please pray for her and for Elsa Harper McAvoy who died in July 
1989. Elsa was a retired teacher at Sacred Heart School in Hartsdaleand is 
survived by three sons, Thomas, James, Alois, and a daughter Elsa 
McAvoy, and a brother, Walter Harper, as well as 10 grandchildren and six 
great-grandchildren. Her daughter wrote: "Please know that mother was 
forever grateful for the education she received at your college. I have her 
year books and treasure them along with the countless stories she told me 
of the 'old day's." Agnes Corry Murtaugh wrote us of the death, on 
September 16, 1989, "of my dear friend and classmate" Agnes Hearns 
Bogan Hooper. Remember her and all our departed in your prayers The 
year 1990 will be an anniversary year for us - our sixty-fifth! Let's meet at 
the Spring Luncheon to celebrate. It will be held on April 28, 1990, at 
Terrace on the Park, in Queens, the site of the World's Fair.

Joe Rooney, Kay Kilgallen s husband has not been well lately and we hope 
and pray he will recover soon. When I spoke to Mary Mlrabella, our 
accomplished musician, she said. "Isn't it sad today'" She was referring to 

the death of Horowitz Mary, a lover of great music, has not been to the 
opera lately but enjoys the concerts at Avery Fischer Hall in Lincoln 
Center. She spent Thanksgiving with a brother and also visited a nephew in 
Kings Park Doris Leary has returned to Madonna House after her 
operation and is feeling well again. Eileen Murray Heaney tells of her four 
lovely grandchildren: young Eileen is a fashion coordinator for 
Bloomingdale's, Chicago, Carolyn, a graduate of Holy Cross, is production 
manager for Lear Magazine; Megan is a junior at Cornell; Kate is in Garden 
City High School. Marltaand Hal's grandson. John, son of daughter Pat, is 
employed in Scott's Valley, CA, three miles from Santa Cruz, where he 
experienced the devastation of the earthquake, driving over the highways 
on his motorcycle. Pat is teaching in Covenant School in Trenton, NJ. 
Marlta's daughter, Barbara, has four children. Doug is a Sophomore at 
Trenton State U; Sean is a freshman at Drew University in Madison, NJ; 
Julie is a sophomore at Steinerl HS and Ricky is a 7th grader at Meynold 
Middle School. It was a year ago, October 24th, that our classmate Agnes 
McShane died. She was one of eleven children. A good student, she 
attended St. Joseph's on an academic scholarship. After graduation she 
took up a career as a teacher in the public school system, but continued 
her education in the evening, earning a master's degree from Fordham and 
a degree in law from Fordham Law School. In 1943 Agnes married John 
Madden and twin girls were born in 1945 followed by another girl in 1947. 
Agnes became a homemaker. The girls grew up and moved upstate and to 
the midwest which provided the parents with frequent trips to visit them 
and their families. John and Agnes retired to St. James, in Suffolk county 
where they lived the rest of their lives. The Spring Luncheon will be on April 
28, 1990, at Terrace on the Park, Queens, a lovely place to meet again.

Our deepest sympathy is extended to the families of Elizabeth Hebron 
Didie whose sudden death on August 1st was a shock to her family and 
friends, and Mary Walsh who died on August 7th after a long illness. We 
also send sincere condolence to Mary Murray Kelly whose husband, 
Horace, died in June. Let us remember all of them in our prayers. On a 
happier note, Marie Kelly Smith writes that September marked for her. a 
"moment of glory" when she was awarded a swimming trophy at the 
Briarcliff Manor Club for having completed (over a period of six months) 50 
miles of swimming in the club pool. Congratulations! Happy news from 
Emma Bergen from St Petersburg, Fl. is that she has a full recovery from 
her pneumonia last January. She has become active in the St Petersburg 
chapter of the AAUW of which she is the only St. Joseph's College Alumna 
representative. Emma recently met Miriam Crofton '36 who was visiting her 
sister-in-law, Terry Mangiardi Crofton '38 in St. Petersburg. The contact 
gave Emma a yen to visit St. Joseph's soon. Regina Peppard Fltzpatrick 
and Jack vacationed at their summer home in Smithtown. LI. They enjoyed 
touring the island and rediscovering their favorite restaurants. Dorothy 
Thompson Rossini is content to call a halt to travelling. Instead, she and 
Fred are happy to be in Florida, basking in the limelight of Fred's three 

grandchildren Jon graduated from the Marist School. Atlanta, GA in May 
He was the school's first Presidential Scholar and recipient of a National 
Merit Scholarship which he will use to attend the Cincinnati Conservatory 
of Music. His brother. Anthony, is a graduate of Rice University, and is 
lecturing on Computer Science in Bonn, West Germany. Anthony is 21 
years old. Grandaughter, Laura, is a ballerina with a New York ballet 
company. Agnes Kelly Bryan and John do like to travel. This summer they 
toured Vermont where they visited, among other points of interest, the 
home of Abraham Lincoln's son, Robert They were impressed by its rich 
beauty and ambience. The Bryans are also enjoying the success of their 
grandchildren. One graduated from Berkeley in June with a degree in 
Chemical Engineering; another from Villanova, and a second Villanova 
graduate is now employed there as Program Director. However, the 
Bryans' chief interest is the Apostolate of the Sick to which they have 
dedicated many years of person service Helen Callahan Brink has 
recovered from her recent illness and is living with her son. John and 
family, in Westport, Connecticut. Her grandson, John, was married in April 
and lives in Washington, DC where he is Subscription Manager for U.S. 
News and World Report. Agnes Comerford still lives in the Bronx and is a 
member of the community which services St. Joseph's School for the Deaf. 
She spent part of the summer at the community's home in Mount Holyoke 
but is now back at the school where she is recuperating from a broken hip. 
Mary Kelly Lawler might also be added to the list of those "recuperating" 
Mary had started on her journey to the North Cape with her long time travel 
companion. They flew as far as Copenhagen and had transferred to their 
cruise ship, when a sudden heart attack claimed the life of her companion. 
Mary had to disembark, arrange for the return of the body to the United 
States, meet with Department of State officials from the U.S. and Sweden, 
and then fly back to the United States with all the baggage, the distress of 
having lost a friend, and the disappointment of having sacrificed a long 
awaited cruise. Settled back in the States another shock awaited Mary. 
This one came from San Francisco. Five members of Mary's family were to 
take part in a conference of Engineers in San Francisco on October 17. 
They arranged to meet at the St. Francis Hotel at 5:00 P.M.. One of her 
grandchildren who is at Berkely, drove across the now famous bridge and 
arrived ten minutes early, at the hotel Mary was home watching TV. 
Happily all the Lawlers recovered in time to welcome Mary's thirteenth 
great-grand-child Jeannette Farrell Amery was spared Nature's fury this 
summer when Hugo decided to land on somebody else's beach However, 
she and all her neighbors battened down the hatches, boarded the 
windows and doors of their cottages, and took all other precautions "just in 
case." The only calamity of Jeannette's summer was a mishap to her 
grandson, Ted. While helping some friends to lift a car, it fell on him 
causing serious injury to his leg. Fortunately, it was not necessary to 
amputate and he was able to return to college in a hip-to-ankle cast and 
crutches for support. He has now been divested of both, and visits to a 
physical therapist three times a week promise to make him whole again. 
Otherwise her summer was pleasant and peaceful and her return to 
Brooklyn was somewhat auspicious Recently. Jennette completed her 
fifth afghan, one for each of her grandchildren. To make another for herself 
seemed too much. Then came an omen that her winter evenings would be 
most comfortable with the news that she had won a beautiful, hand-made 
afghan in a church raffle. A pleasant telephone conversation with Elinor 
Woods Paul indicated that she was in good spirits in spite of her injured 
shoulder. She, too, is in the hands of a physical therapist and is able to 
return to her parish work. Her daughter, Bernadette, is a busy photogra- 
pher, concentrating on the work of ballet artists. Messages from members 
of '28 have commented on the news reference to the accomplishments of 
28's children and grandchildren. They find that the younger members of 
their families are impressed and inspired so keep the news coming. If you

Our annual Mass for deceased members was an occasion for loving 
thoughts and fond memories My home was blessed by the liturgy, 
celebrated by my son, Father Keith Fennessy, who has come to know and 
love my classmates. His homily reinforced our sentiments that old friends 
are precious treasures We then enjoyed luncheon at Bruxelles. a charming 
village restaurant just a few feet from my apartment At the reunion were 
Edna Dawkins McDonald, Marie Furey Boyce, Kathenne Kelly Carlin, 
Anne McCormack Fennessy, Irene Parker Parks, Claire Smith. Mary 
Whelan Phelan, Mary White Kearney and Marie Berry, our honorary 
member Last minute complications prevented Helen Coughlan Worthley.

Frances Dleckert Rebele, though back in the swim again, was not quite up 
to a trip to Manhattan. Marge Kenny was on a well-deserved vacation. She 
has been extremely active in volunteer work for over thirty years Gertrude 
Unser was off to Europe for an extended tour and Madeline Kendall Friel 
wished she could bilocate! We were saddened to hear, belatedly, of the 
death last February of ebullient Mildred Martin Donnelly. Her son said how 
she clung to her joyful philosophy and was happy for all the blessings of 
her life We will remember her that way. Another piece of sad news was the 
illness of Anne Burns Meehan. She was a "regular", adding her delightful 
charm to our reunions. Please remember them all in your prayers Kay 


Ansbro Wurts, of Florida, had her travelling curtailed this year because of 
her husband's surgery. He is doing well Christine Barton, Kay Frey Lynch 
and Winifred McMahon sent their best wishes to all. Members of the family 
from all over the United States, including Hawaii came to celebrate the 
50th wedding anniversary of Charlie and Marge Oliver Kaiser last April. I 
would be happy to hear from other members of our class who seem to have 
lost touch. Everyone is still remembered with affection. Please let me know 
how you are. A telephone call or a little note would add cheer to my life. Kay 
Kelly Carlln whom we all remember for her lovely soprano voice that added 
much beauty to our Mass, was inspired to write a poem for our reunion. We 
share it with all of you. 

My memories pursue each other 

through the meadows of my mind. 
They stand in silhouette 

against the years. 
They come in laughter, and chagrin. 

and often tears. 

And pierce the inner places of my heart.

Rita Doherty (Sr Eucharla) is in Monrovia, CA again. The house in 
Terryville, Connecticut closed, and so after three weeks at Maryknoll, she 
flew out to Monrovia. It's a beautiful spot in the foothills of the San Gabriel 
Mountains. She and the other sisters watched as firemen raced in with 
engines and others fought the forest fires from helicopters. Rita is awaiting 
an eye exam for cataracts. Incidentally, the Thomas A. Doherty whom the 
college honored as the Distinguished Citizen at the October Dinner Dance 
is Rita's nephew. Catherine Cooke is in a nursing home in New Jersey. Her 
brother-in-law. Jerry Shea, is going to follow her as soon as he sells the 
house, and will live in a residence nearby. I've also gathered news about Sr. 
James Cecelia (Mary Cullen). She and Sr. Clare Imelda (Helen Ruane) 
formed part of the Guard of Honor for Anne Connelly Burns' sister, Sr. 
David Xavier, who died this year. Anne was in the hospital, so our two 
classmates attended the Mass, in addition to Anne's sister, Agnes Connelly 
Huether '41 and family. In Brentwood, both Helen (Sr. Clare) and Mary (Sr. 
James) are renewing friendship with Josephine Ford Scanlon 33 Rita

Latoracca and her sister, Mary, travelled through New England and 
Canada this summer. We received a note from Colonel Thomas F. Lancer, 
who enclosed a check in memory of the first anniversary of the death of 
Kathleen Flynn Murphy. Kay was the wife of an old friend of his. J.J.

Last June 30th, Catherine Wills died at Cabrini Medical Center after a brief 
illness. She was a former supervisor in the Foster Care Program of the 
Catholic Home Bureau in New York. We also learned very recently of the 
death of Genevieve Kelly Plckel last July. We extend our deep sympathy to 
Ceal Finn Fahy on the death of her husband, Edward. A retired rear 
admiral, he served as a submarine officer in World War II and was Chief of 
the Navy's Bureau of Ships. Ceal who lives in Floria may move to the 
Virginia area where her three daughters live. Please remember all the 
deceased and their families in your prayers. Dot Tobln Forget visits her 
daughter in San Diego a couple of times a year. Dot has ten grandchildren. 
Two are college graduates and another two are in college. Brian went to 
the University of Virginia and is an architect in NYC; Maureen, from 
Indiana University, is a flight attendant for United Air Lines and is stationed 
in New York. Kevin is a Junior at Villanova and Sean a freshman in Loyola, 
Baltimore. Before she went back to Florida, Anne Hennessy O'Rourke 
phoned the office. She mentioned that Monsignor Fitzgibbon was in very 
poor health Keep him in your prayers. Rod and Jane McLoughlln 
O'Connor were out in the Los Angeles area visiting daughter Barbara and 
enjoying the beach with her two little girls, Mary and Jane. From there they 
went to Denver to visit daughter Christine and David and their family, 
particularly their 1V4 year old grandson, Benjamin. They enjoyed the 
beautiful, breathtaking scenery of the mountains, and the vibrant air. They 
also visited the renowned Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. Last 
March, Jane accepted a proclamation from Queens Borough President 
Claire Shulman, noting the observance of the American Association of 
University Women Week. Jane is president of the Queens Branch. Anne 
Seltz Smith's nephew, Steve Smith, has just been transferred to Denver 
and Ed and she are looking forward to flying to that part of the country very 
soon. Florence Kemp Carberry's sons, John and Frank, are both in the 
Boston area and manage to have lunch frequently. This is quite a change 
for John— from Atlanta to the Northeast. Grace Flannery Morris' daughter, 
Beth, now teaches in Delaware but is contemplating a return to our town. 
Beth teaches first grade and loves the little ones. I had a great chat with 
Virginia Conran Cheasty who sounds as vibrant and perky as ever; she and 
Si, who is practicing law in Stamford, tell me that their daughter Ginny is 
teaching up there. Jack has been sent by the Army to get a Master's in 
Environmental Science. Robert is a lawyer, married to a lawyer and living 
in Oakland, CA, and daughter. Mary, lives in New York. She also is a 
lawyer, married to a lawyer, Peter, whom she met while attending 
Columbia Law School Mary Ellz McL. Farrell and I upheld the honor of 
1 935 by attending the lovely Alumnae Fall luncheon at the New York Yacht 
Club We enjoyed the company of Betty Pyne Dunleavy '36 and Sister Alice 
Francis Young '40 who is a very dear pal of mine from way back in high 
school days Marlon Musante had a busy fall— went canoeing on the Erie 
Canal, tripped to Chicago, attended the 50th anniversary of her very first 
class of students and generally had a great time. Anne Scannell Smith, who 
had been living in Virginia, was in New York for a couple of weeks to close 
up and sell her New York residence. She is moving to West Palm Beach, 
Florida and is looking forward to it. We just received a short note from Leo 
Callahan telling us of the death of his sister Dlda (Margaret) Callahan on 
November 11th. We all remember her as the most valuable basketball 
player - though short by today's players, Dida could maneuver and run 
faster than anyone on the team. Pretty as a picture, Dida, had a great sense 
of humor and added much to our college days. Do hope that more of you 
will meet at the Spring Luncheon next April 28th at Terrace on the Park, 
Flushing. This will be another milestone for us— our fifty-fifth anniversary. 
Let's renew the joy we felt at our golden reunion. Make plans now for April 
28th! We still have four classmates on our lost list: Jeanette Griffin 
McMurray, Genevieve Naughton Dumbille, Helen O'Connor and Rita 
Shevlin. Does anyone have an idea of their locales?

Very little news from the class of '36! Just Dot Delay, Isabel Farrell, Betty 
Pyne Dunleavy and her granddaughter, Meghan O'Brien, attended the Fall 
luncheon at the New York Yacht Club. You missed a delightful affair. The 

building is beautiful and the food was outstanding. Do hope that more of 
you will join us at the Spring Luncheon which will be held on April 28th at 
Terrace on the Park (the old World's Fair Ground). You'll hear more of this 
after the first of the year, but mark your calendar now. Betty was given a 
wonderful surprise party on her 75th birthday at Ye Olde Fire House in 
Point Lookout, by her daughter, Nancy and her six grandchildren. What a 
surprise to see Isabel Farrell, Dot Delay, Alice Hagan FInnerty and Jack, 
Edna Brennan Maloney and her sister-in-law, Rita Brennan. Former co-

Peggy McDerby Shea was happy to attend the Fall Luncheon— a great 
afternoon and the food was delicious. She enjoyed the company of Grace 
Cooling who has settled in East Rockaway. Grace retired from an 
interesting, varied business career which came to an end in Atlanta. 
Georgia. While there she was in frequent contact with the sons of Isha 
Murphy Klefer. Ann Hennessy had to cancel her luncheon reservation due 
to her sister's illness. Keep in mind that the Spring Luncheon of '91 will 
mark our 50th. Even if it is your first time back, please plan on making that 
event a BIG one and memorable Tempus fugit! Called Mary Stankevlch 
Bolen whose arthritis of the spine has slowed her activity and made a cane 
necessary. True to her humorous self, MM says, "No more break-dancing 
for me!" Her son Bill and daughter Amy and her husband live in New 
Jersey. Daughter and Mary keep the home fires burning. Claudia received 
her degree from St. John's U and works in the medical field. Marge 
Andresen Breedis enjoys her eleven grandchildren (the latest were twins 
born to Liz). The eldest is eight! Terry Gough de Tar was indispensable 
during a visit to son John and Sue in West Hurley, NY. The couple had their

Mass and burial were in Brentwood Mary Leahy Cleary enjoyed a visit 
from Adele Mulligan Seymour. Mary continues to give piano lessons to 
seven very talented youngsters, one of whom won first prize in a 
Pennsylvania competition last year. Mary McDonough Welsnet and Bill 
just settled into their oceanfront rental in Myrtle Beach when Hugo 
dispossesed them in a hurry. The motel to which they retreated miles 
inland had no electricity so they were literally in the dark for many hours I 
guess we should all have battery operated radios with us when travelling. 
Travelling north to Long Island just before Labor Day when Gerald was 
discharged by the cardiologist, we visited Grace Lynch Perrott and Bill in 
Virginia Beach. They gave us an interesting tour of the area including the 
Naval Air Station. Both of them are excellent bridge players and have 
joined bridge groups. Mary, their daughter, recently moved to New 
Hampshire from Long Island. Son, Bill and family live in Dallas After 
leaving the Perrotts we drove leisurely up the Eastern Shore of Maryland 
and met our daughter Mary Ellen and family for a week at a condo on the 
ocean at Ocean City, MD. I was impressed by the vitality of the congregation 
of St. Luke's Catholic Church nearby. I wish to thank all of you who called 
or sent cards to Gerald following his open heart surgery. I was truly 
warmed by the concern and the tendering of prayers which even his 
surgeon credited for Gerald's recovery

Eileen Mullen was in contact with Barbara Cooke Nash, who lives in Silver 
Spring, MD. She and Jack have four children: a daughter and three sons, 
the youngest, Pete, is in his junior year and an engineering major. With Five 
grandchildren, Barbara is exulting in grandparenting - says it far outshines 
her master's from Catholic U and her love of computers. Had a chance to 
talk with Margery Robblns Glfford who teaches senior English classes, 
including Advanced Placement English for the Gifted and Talented. Since 
1985 Margery has hosted a Christmas party for former students, many of

Regina, a Smith grad on her way to Chicago to undertake a new position: 
and Mary Elaine, a May '89 Bryn Mawr grad and a summer bride. This 
summer, probably the last weekend of June, Margie proposes that English 
majors or minors - and anyone else who would like to join - meet at the 
Brooklyn Campus for lunch. If you're interested, give Margie a call. Related 
to this, I will send a list of class members' addresses and phone numbers.

pass it on. Oops, I almost forgot! Next year is a big one for us. It's our 
thirtieth anniversary - a great reason to meet together and celebrate. We 
will be especially honored at the Spring Luncheon on April 28, 1990 which 
will be held at Terrace on the Park in Queens. You'll be hearing more about 
it but meantime, mark your 1990 calendar and call some of your friends -

wonderful time. I was delighted to meet Joan's husband, Jim. Summer was 
hectic for the Macchiarolas. Frank campaigned for public office. Family 
life was on hold and perpetual motion was the order of the day. Though

was the victim of a chain snatcher as she entered the club, but hooray for 
Alice - she foiled the robber's attempt and saved herself and the chain.

I am reporting to you live - after the quake - from sunny California and am 
among the very fortunate who survived the experience intact. However, the 
bedrock of NYC is beginning to seem very appealing again! Although I 
never realized that I'd volunteered as Class agent when I offered to help 
organize the class reunion last spring, I'll give it my best shot. Phil and 
Mary Hllgeman Meyers, and daughter, Sara, visited me this summer on 
their return from a vacation in the Far East. We enjoyed a whirlwind tour of 
Disneyland and Universal Studios. . . including the simulated earthquake 
experience. Ron and Pat McNulty Kushner were also out traveling this 
summer and stopped by to visit with Joellen Sheehan Faucher and their 
family in Shirley, MA. Pat and I spent a great afternoon earlier this summer 
walking the streets of Manhattan in the pouring rain and drinking lime- 
rickeys in a coffee shop while we dried out and caught up on each other's 
life Gerl Thompson Sokol and her sons, Peter and Christopher, have 
returned to the East Coast from California. She recently purchased a home 
in Montclair, NJ and is Vice-president for a financial Investment 
Corporation located in Jersey City. She's managed to stay in touch with 
Mary Noberinl Heller and Rosemary Mayer I had a chance to see all of 
them again this summer and am very confident that we will arrange 
another reunion in 1990. It would be great if we could entice some of our 
"absentee" classmates to join us next time Ellen Monahan, Glnny 
Humes Mastondrea, MaryEllen Hennessy Hansen, Kerrl Morrlssey 
Plowman, Marie Kessel, JoAnn Bacon Turltto, Marge Penny et al We 
missed you! We extend our sympathy to Elizabeth Hogan on the death of 
her mother last June. Her father died in 1988. Please remember them in 
your prayers We are sorry that Joellen Sheehan Faucher has resigned as 
class agent and we thank her for her services for the past several years. 
While visiting East Coast beaches last June, Joellen stopped to look up 
Sister Joseph Damlen and shared a few hours, recalling the days when 
Joellen helped out in Public Relations. Joellen is trying to recall who it was 
at the Spring Luncheon, who volunteered to be a 1964 class agent. Get in 
touch with the Alumni Office for a class list and more information and a 
beautiful red folder to help keep track of notes. My mailbox is still standing 
and I would welcome hearing from all of you.

We were delighted to get the news of Evelyn Vleta Smith's marriage to 
Charles Robinson last summer. The wedding was held July 29th in Coral 
Gables, Florida. The Stanton crew took a week's vacation in Cape Cod this 
year. Everyone agreed the highlight was the Whale Watch cruise. Two 
humpbacks got close enough that we were sprayed with "whale breath" 
from their spouts several times Elaine DeFellce Spataro, Susan Burke, 
Peggy Smith and Cathie Colgan Stanton had a chance to visit at the fall 
luncheon at the New York Yacht Club. Elaine's son, Michael, is in his 
freshman year at St. John's University He graduated from Xavierian High 
School and received a full tuition, four-year scholarship to St. John's. He 
also received the Vincent Kassenbrock Memorial Scholarship, a New York 
Telephone Scholarship and a Fordham University Scholarship. Susan and 
Elaine have the honor of being on the faculty of Bishop Kearney High 
School, the winner of the Power 95 School Spirit Contest. Somehow they 
didn't seem too enthused about having a disk jockey on top of a van in front 
of the school handing out T-shirts and record albums at dismissal time 
The contest prize was 2000 free tickets to a New Kids on the Block concert 
We're waiting to see whether they go Peggy Smith just started a new |ob, 
still with the State Social Services Department in Albany. She will be part of 
an interdepartmental team developing program ideas for early intervention

Colgan Stanton just gave a talk at the annual meeting of the Science 
Teachers Association of New York State on the comparative environmental 
effects of different ways of producing electric energy. Her children think 
she does it because they are not a particularly attentive audience. Kathleen 
Vaslle Jaworskl is on leave from teaching at Lafayette HS in Brooklyn to 
pursue an Administrative Certificate at Brooklyn College.

wrote us of the death of Patricia Ann Lettleri 
Hveen August 13. 1989 After leaving St. 
Joseph's, Pat worked at the Strong Place Day 
Care Center and shortly was married to Frank 
Hveen. She left her job before her daughter. 
Margaret, was born Two years later twins, 
Francis and Ralph, were born and Pat stayed 
home until the boys started first grade. 
Elizabeth Zullo was the first grade teacher at 
St. Clare's and a friendship developed between 
Pat, Frank and herself. When the boys were to 
enter third grade, Elizabeth moved up to teach it so that she could have the 
twins again The following year. Pat began to feel that something was 
wrong in her body After consulting several doctors. Pat was diagnosed as 
having lymphoma. Pat did everything medically available to fight this 
terrible form of cancer but had to give up her job within the year. She never 
complained and was always cheerful in spite of intense pain. She had a 
party for Margaret's eighth grade graduation and a party tor her sons' 
birthday. Her smiling face belied her agony but she was happiest doing for 
her family Pat loved St. Joseph's, too. Please remember her and her family 
in your prayers Barbara Hurley Camporeale teaches kindergarten on

Marie Clotilde 
Falvey, C.S.J. 

Sister Marie Clotilde Falvey, CSJ '33 

Sister Marie Clotilde Falvey, C.S.J., Professor Emeritus 
of Chemistry, died on May 23rd at the Maria Regina 
Convent in Brentwood. 

Sister Clotilde, a graduate of Maxwell Training School, 
entered the Sisters of St. Joseph in September 1926. In 1933 
she received her B.A. from St. Joseph's College; in 1937, 
her M.A. from Columbia University. A member of St. 
Joseph's faculty from 1936 on, Sister Clotilde served as 
Chairperson of the Chemistry Department for many years. 

Active professionally, Sister participated in a number of 
National Science Foundation summer programs. In 
addition, she contributed to formulating portions of the 
American Chemical Society exam in Physical Chemistry, 
and abstracted and translated articles in English and 
German for Chemical Abstracts. In September she was to 
have received a medal from the American Chemical 
Society for her membership of fifty years. 

Sister Clotilde was active in local civic organizations 
such as Clergy Concerned for a Better Fort Greene, the 
Pastoral Planning Project, the Dr. White Community 
Center, and, most important, the Jeanne Valois Guild for 
the Handicapped, which she helped to organize in 1951 
and to which she remained dedicated until the 1980's. For 
the last few years she devoted herself to contributing to the 
neighborhood shelter for the homeless. 

At the Mass of the Resurrection on May 26th, Sister 
George Aquin O'Connor, C.S.J. , President of St. Joseph's 
College, spoke "for those of us who have shared our lives 
with Sister Marie Clotilde". 

For more than sixty years, Sister Marie Clotilde has 
lived at St. Joseph's College. Independent, quick-witted, 
clever, curious, determined, and private, she faithfully 
Iwed out her commitment as a Sister of St. Joseph with 
tremendous generosity and joy, always with a great respect 
for authority in civil, religious, and collegiate circles. 

As a professor of Chemistry and long-time chairperson 
of the Department, she is remembered as a dedicated 
teacher, an innovative instructor who introduced courses 
in Earth Science and the Ascent of Man, an avid collector 
of specimens, a reliable predictor of the weather, a roof 
watcher of the heavenly galaxies — always impatient for 
her students and us to learn more and to be up-to-date in 
the ever revealing field of science. 

Holidays often meant trips to the 42nd Street Library, 
museums, the Planetarium. In earlier years N.S.F. grants 
enabled her to explore many areas of the United States. 
Wherever she went — to New Mexico, North Carolina, or 
the library, her curious and capable intellect absorbed 
much to be shared. We shall think of her as ever a part of 
the College and an influential alumna. Sixty years is a 
long time of service in one assignment! 

An observant religious, Sister Clotilde loved the 
Scriptures (her Sacramentary was a treasured gift). She 
prepared liturgies, and was faithful to the Liturgy of the 
Hours. She loved to sew, especially artu les for the Chapel. 
Often, Sister and her generous family provided flowers for 
spec ia I occasions. For many years, Clo cultivated roses in a 
small garden which was hers near the side entrance to the 

Sister's energies were not all centered on the College. 
She knew many of our neighbors, some of whom are with 
us today . She was of ten a lector here at Queen of AllSaintS, 
active in Clergy Concerned for a Better Fort Greene, and 
was often seen planning suppers and going to the 
supermarket for food and treats for the homeless at the 
nearby shelter. For them she bought so< ks, made scarves, 
and reminded us all by her quiet example that we too 
should share what has been gwen us. 

Her activity in the Jeanne J'alois Guild took her time 
many, many Sundays as she prepared for the meetings at 
the College, or more distant locations (usually travelling 
by bus). Closet up for liturgy, provided some refreshments. 
and welcomed all with a cheery hello. Though she almost 
never spoke of love, all her good works bespoke love for 
students, family, friends, her beloved Sisters of St. Joseph, 
and those to whom she readily extended herself. 

More recently, we noted with sadness Clo's loss of 
iveight and inability to move with the swiftness to whit h 
we had long become accustomed, and we saic her submit 
to hospitalization and all that it entailed. Eventually Clo 
agreed to two weeks in Maria Regina Convent in 
Brentwood to regain her strength; then she hoped she 
would be home again. As the ambulance entered the 
grounds of our Motherhouse in Brentwood, she looked 
out the window and gave her last geology lesson. She 
identified the terrain "terminal moraine-Wisconsin 
glacier"! On the morning after her Nth day in Maria 
Regina, with patience, sincere gratitude, and profound 
spiritual strength, surrounded by her Sisters of St. Joseph, 
Sister Clotilde went quietly and serenely to the home 
prepared for her from all eternity. 

And so today we bid farewell to her body-though not her 
memory. May all of us retail the lessons she taught 
without words: love of her family, her Congregation, and 
the Chun h; openess to new ideas, dxntimic interest m all 
aspects of ministry — and sell lew giving. Following her. 
we as Sisters of St. Joseph continue to hold union with 
God and others as our focus — with the hope of ultimate 
transformation until, like her. we max peat efully enter the 
home prepared for each of us from all eternity. Thank you, 

Richly Deserved

of Doctor of Humane Letters on Mary 
St. John Murphy of the class of 1924. 

Since graduation, Mary has main-

For more than half a century she 
rendered invaluable service as president 
of the alumnae association for three 
years, as a college Trustee for 25 years,

Given this eighth day of June, 1990. 

With The Stock Exchange 

In the few years since her gradua- 
tion from St. Joseph's, Ellen McCarthy- 
has completed law school at St. John's 
University, been admitted to the New 
York State Bar, and laid the foundation 
for a significant legal career in the 
troubled Wall Street of the '90's. 

Ellen is now employed as an Enforce- 
ment Attorney with the New York 
Stock Exchange. She began this associa- 
tion in September 1989, having held 
jobs in the legal field since her college 

Ellen investigates allegations of 
misconduct by stockbrokers or by 
brokerage firms. After completing her 
investigation, she may recommend 
that formal disciplinary action be 
taken. If her recommendation is 
accepted at the appropriate level 
within the Exchange, she then attempts 
to negotiate a settlement with the 
subject of her investigation. As with 
all legal disputes, negotiations some- 
times break down. In the event of such 
a break-down, Ellen must prepare 
herself for a contested hearing before 
the Exchange's three-member Hearing 

She finds her job exciting and 
challenging. "It's a wonderful job for 
a new lawyer, since I'm getting hands- 
on experience in almost all aspects of 
the legal profession-from researching 
and writing to negotiating and arguing 
in a hearing room". Ellen enjoys the 
work all the more because of co- 
workers who are very supportive and 
willing to share their expertise. 

In September of 1980 Ellen matricu- 
lated at St. Joseph's College on a full 
scholarship from the Board of Trustees. 
She had graduated from Stella Maris 
High School at the end of her junior 
year, in an accelerated program. At 
SJC, Ellen majored in history and in 
1984 received her Bachelor of Arts 
degree, summa cum laude. She was 
also the class valedictorian. 

As a student at SJC, Ellen partici- 
pated in numerous extra-curricular 
activities. Among them were service as 
Junior Class Representative, Presi- 
dent of the Phi Mu Chapter of Phi 

Alpha Theta, President of the 
Political Affairs Club, and Yearbook 
Photography Editor. She was also a 
Peer Tutor, and belonged to Chapel 
Players and the Gaelic Society. 

While a senior, Ellen worked for 
Lawyers Title Insurance Company 
as a real estate title examiner. She 
left LTIC in late 1984 to take a 
position with Technimetrics, Inc., 
an investor relations consulting firm 
servicing the Fortune 500 and the 
securities industry. She acted as an 
intermediary between the firm's 1 1- 
member sales force and 997 insti- 
tutional clients, facilitatingcontract 
renewals and handling orders. She 
also managed Accounts Receivable, 
representing an annual income to 
the firm of $7.6 million. 

In 1986, Ellen joined Wood, 
Struthers & Winthrop Management 
Corporation, an investment advisory 
subsidiary of the brokerage firm of 
Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette. 
While attending law school, she 
continued to work there, performing 
various functions in the firm's 
Legal Compliance, Mutual Funds, 
and Operations departments. She 
left Wood Struthers in June 1989 to 
study for the Bar Exam. After a 
much-needed vacation to Ireland 
in August, she began her present 
employment at the NYSE. 

Of her education at St. Joseph's, 
Ellen says, "The academic training 
I received at SJC was excellent. 
However, I think the most im- 
portant aspect of my college experi- 
ence was the development of my 
sense of self. My family had already 
instilled in me a sense of who I am 
as a person in this world of vast 
opportunity. The caring atmos- 
phere at SJC, from administrators, 
faculty, and fellow students, allowed 
me to further explore my own 
unique possibilities and develop 
my personal potential. I can honest- 
ly say that deciding to attend St. 
Joe's was one of the best choices I 
ever made." 

Anne Schrage '27 

Anne Schrage's delivery of the valedictory at Class Day 
in Commencement Week of 1927 was the culmination of a 
college career distinguished by her spirited participation 
in diversified phases of student life. Outstanding was her 
talent in the field of dramatic performance and direction; 
she continued to manifest this in her enthusiastic 
leadership of the dramatic groups sponsored for some 
years as part of alumnae activities. Anne was always 
articulate in her gratitude for the abiding, positive 
significance of St. Joseph's in her life. She included in her 
indebtedness the "Evenings with Christ" which she 
attended as an alumna during the decades they were held, 
the early '30's into the '50's, open to undergraduates and 
graduates. She was highly conscious of the spiritual and 
intellectual benefits we received from those never-to-be- 
forgotten symposia on First Friday evenings. 

Immediately upon graduation Anne became a member 
of the New York City school system; in February 1931, as a 
result of success in competitive examination, she received 
her appointment as Teacher of Speech in High School. 
She functioned in this capacity for forty-one years, during 
the last thirty-three of which she was on the faculty of 
Forest Hills High School, from which she retired in 1973. 

During her entire adult life Anne was a faithful member 
of the Secular Order of Franciscans. Beginning in 1933, for 
twenty years she gave religious instructions to girls and boys 
attending public school; through the medium of the 
Confraternity of Christian Doctrine she did this in her 
home parish, Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, 
Jamaica. Later she was a Lector there. Her service as a 
Eucharistic Minister in a nursing home in her geographic 
area ended only when she sold her house in July 1982 and 
moved into a senior residence, first in Queens and then in 
Somerset, New Jersey. In the latter location she was within 
convenient distance of a much-loved niece who was most 
attentive to her. Anne's mental vigor persisted and her good 
looks endured, but she was in declining physical health for 
five years prior to her death on December 14, 1989. 

In April 1946 Anne was one of the organizers of the 
Queens County Interracial Committee of the Brooklyn 
Diocesan Council of Catholic Women. As Chairman of 
this Committee she addressed innumberable groups and 
conferred with countless persons in her unremitting 
efforts to promote both the understanding of Catholic 
principles of interracial justice and the determination to 
act in conformity with them. She was a member of the 
Catholic Interracial Council and for a period of time its 
Secretary. She regularly attended its meetings at the Vesey 




Street headquarters in Manhattan and found very valuable 
not only the inspiration and widsom of the scholarly 
Father John La Farge, S.J., and the acumen of the 
indefatigable Executive Secretary, George Hunton, Editor 
of Interracial Review, but also the contributions to the 
discussions by other members of this interracial group. 
Anne was a charter member of the New York State 
Commission Against Discrimination. In 1952 she was the 
recipient of the Queens Brotherhood Award. In 1980 she 
was the Right to Life Party candidate for the New York 
State Assembly. 

Anne's ardor in the causes which she espoused revealed 
strikingly to a large number of people the qualities which 
we, her fellow-alumnae, knew to be characteristic of her: 
thorough and constantly expanding and deepening 
knowledge of her Faith; sensitivity to its implications for 
the individual and for society; generous sacrifice of self in 
countless hours of inconspicuous, tedious, and necessary 
labor in behalf of Catholic ideals and the measures to 
implement them; enlightened, eloquent, and courageous 
defense of right, regardless of circumstances or person- 
alities; unfailing spirit of charity. Consequently it was 
with joy that, in 1964, we welcomed the news that Anne 
had been selected to be one of the delegates from the 
Brooklyn Diocese to the canonization in Rome of the 
Uganda Martyrs; her letters and her later oral narratives 
shared with us her memorable experience. 

One of Anne's cherished possessions was a photgraph of 
Laurian Cardinal Rugambwa, Bishop of Bukoba, 
Tanzania. At Vatican Council II he presided over a central 
secretariat about which the bishops of Africa grouped 
their episcopacies; he was the first African cardinal. The 
photograph which His Eminence gave Anne bears his 
handwritten inscription, "To Miss Anne Schrage, 
wishing you God's blessing" and his signature. 

Anne's fervent love for her Faith, her zeal for justice, her 
variety of natural gifts and cultural interests, her outgoing 
personality, her fine voice and bearing, her strong family 
ties, and her ability to give and to receive warm friendship, 
enriched her life and the lives of us who cherish our fond 
memories of her. The quotation from St. Thomas More, 
that appears on the lovely acknowledgement card made by 
her artist-niece, truly reflects Anne: "Pray for me, as I will 
for thee, that we may merrily meet in heaven."

Honored By Marymount 

Dr. Elisa Carnllo '43 

Dr. Elisa Carrillo '43 has recently been singularly 
honored by Marymount College, Tarrytown. Marymount 
has named its adult scholars' program the Elisa Carrillo 
Scholars Program for Adult Women. 

This program makes it easy for women who have 
postponed their college education for personal or 
financial reasons, to pursue the degree they desire. When 
the time comes that it is important for them to return to 
study, the college provides the support and 
encouragement they need. The returned student brings 
with her the immeasurable gift of life experience. When 
she has earned her degree, she leaves with new skills, a 
fresh outlook, and a sense of personal fulfillment. 

Dr. Carrillo, an internationally known and respected 
historian, has been a professor of history at Marymount 
College, Tarrytown, since 1945, becoming a full professor 
in 1958. She received her PhD in history from Fordham 
University in 1953. She has done research in 15 foreign 
countries, including the Soviet Union, Israel, Turkey, 
Morocco, and most of Europe, and is an authority on the 
history of modern Italy, on Soviet life and culture, and on 
women in European history. 

Elisa Carrillo is the author of an impressive list of books 
and articles. Some of the latter have appeared in the 
Journal of Modern History, Review of Politics, Catholic 
Historical Review, America, and New Catholic 
Encyclopedia. The biography she compiled: Alcide de 
Gaspari, the Long Apprenticeship, was published in 1965 
by the University of Notre Dame Press. De Gaspari was the 
first Christian Democratic Prime Minister of Italy after 
World War II, serving from 1943-1953. After his death in 
1954, Dr. Carrillo was the only American scholar granted 
access to his private papers by the family who had custody 
of them. 

Elisa is the recipient of many prestigious grants and 
awards including the King Award of the United States 
Catholic Historical Society, for Excellence in Research. 
She has also served in an executive capacity in several 
major professional organizations. 

In the classroom, Elisa is a legend. Her teaching is rich 
with energy and excitement and it is this love of 
scholarship that stimulates many students to attain 
further academic goals. 

St. Joseph's College takes immense pride in Dr. Elisa 
Carrillo on whom this unique honor has been bestowed 
and extends congratulations and best wishes to her.

Prize For Humanitarianism 

Sister lsohna Ferre, MSBT '59 

An alumna of St. Joseph's College, 
Sister Isolina Ferre '59, whose work has 
been described in previous Alumna- 
grams, has received a most prestigious 
award for humanitarian effort. 

The Albert Schweitzer Prize for 
Humanitarianism is named for the 
celebrated physician who gave up a 
brilliant career to devote his life to a 
heroic humanitarian mission in Africa. 
It was established in 1986 by Alfred 
Toepfer, the international grain 
merchant of Hamburg, Germany, 
founder of the Alexander von Humboldt 
Foundation. The prize, given annually 
by the foundation, is intended to 
advance the cause of humanitarianism 
through recognition of exemplary 
achievement. In 1987 it was awarded to 
former President Jimmy Carter, in 1988 
to Marian Wright Edelman. 

The award was presented to Sister on 
October 20, 1989, at a ceremony at The 
Johns Hopkins University. Among the 
speakers was the Honorable Rafael 
Hernandez-Colon, Governor of Puerto 
Rico. Steven Muller, President of the 
University and Chairman of the Board 
of Trustees for the Prize, presented the 
award with this citation:

The Albert Schweitzer Prize for Humanitarianism 


Sister Isolina Ferre 

Educator, missionary, and friend of the downtrodden, 

you have dedicated your life to the service of those less fortunate, 

extending your hand to help them help themselves. 

Your grace, understanding, and hard work for more than fifty years on behalf of poor 

families in the Appalachian coal mines of West Virginia, 

Portuguese immigrants in the islands near Cape Cod, black and Puerto Rican youths 

in the troubled streets of New York, and rural youths in your native Puerto Rico 

have rekindled their hope for a life of dignity and justice. 

As a young woman, you could easily have chosen a life 

amidst the security and wealth of your family in Puerto Rico. 

Instead, when you joined the Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity 

at the age of twenty-one — and when you mediated between gangs 

in Brooklyn and the city's juvenile justice system, when you devoted yourself to the 

study of criminology at Fordham University, and when you reassembled a 

shattered community in Ponce, Puerto Rico, and 

established the Sister Isolina Ferre Centers — you chose, again and again, 

with intelligence and compassion, to confront the despair of poverty 

rather than accept the comfortable notion that the needs of the 

disenfranchised are the concern of others. 

The educational, health, and social programs of the Sister 

Isolina Ferre Centers give youths, the disabled, and the elderly in Ponce the 

tools they need to help themselves, and these exemplary programs stand as 

national models of what community-based action can accomplish. 

Sister Isolina Ferre, for your unceasing commitment to 

improve the lives of your fellow brothers and sisters, 

The Johns Hopkins University, 

on behalf of The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, 

is proud to bestow upon you The Albert Schweitzer Prize for Humanitarianism.

Mary H. Shea 
Professor Emeritus 

Margaret Harrington '64 

On May 7th, Margaret R. Harrington '64 was named to 
be the new Superintendent of Queens High Schools by 
City Schools Chancellor, Joseph Fernandez. Prior to her 
assignment, she was principal of Port Richmond High 
School in Staten Island. 

In her new role, Margaret Harrington will supervise 26 
public high schools in Queens, with a total enrollment of 
approximately 60,000 students. Several specialized schools

aerospace mechanics, and John Bowne High School in 
Flushing, which offers a curriculum in farming and 
agriculture. Her office will be at Newtown High School 
Annex in Corona. 

Peg notes that Queens high schools are high-achieving 
schools and that this presents a wonderful opportunity for 
collaboration, collegiality and professionalism on the 
part of school staff, parents, and the community. She 
looks forward to the opportunity to be an educational 
leader and bring even greater heights to the Queens 

Dr. Noel kriftcher, BASIS Superintendent, credits Dr. 
Harrington with bringing a community spirit to Port 
Richmond. She worked to get the parents and community 
involved in the school and "brought real community 
spirit to the place." 

During her tenure as principal, Peg continued her own 
education at Fordham University, Lincoln Center, 
Department of Administration, Public Policy and Urban 
Law, and was granted a Doctor of Education degree this 
year. Her dissertation was on the "First Year of the 
Implementation of the Peer Intervention Program within 
the City of New York." In addition, she was recently 
admitted into the New York Academy of Public Education. 

Margaret Harrington, a History major, received her 
Bachelor's degree from St. Joseph's College in 1964. That 
year she began teaching Social Studies at Mckinley Junior 
High School in Brooklyn. In 1969, she joined the Curtis 
High School staff and advanced to Assistant Principal 
therein 1977. She was named Principal of Port Richmond 
High School in 1982. During that time Peg received a 
Master's (1966) from Brooklyn College and a Professional 
Diploma in Supervision and Administration from the 
College of Staten Island. 


Mary H. Shea 

Mary H. Shea, Professor Emeritus, died on May 22nd, 
after an illness of several months. 

Miss Shea joined the faculty of St. Joseph's College in 
1943. She held degrees from Brooklyn College and New- 
York University, and had studied at the University of 
Wisconsin in a doctoral program. 

Miss Shea taught Speech at the college and later was 
Chairman of the Speech Communications Department. 
She was well qualified in speech, as an art and as therapy. 
She developed the speech pathology track, and became 
deeply involved in providing pathology courses foi the 
Child Study Special Education program. 

Kind and sympathetic toward students with speech 
problems - and with personal problems. Miss Shea had the 
ability to help students help themselves. 

From 1972 until her retirement in 1980, Mary Shea 
travelled each term to Suffolk to help to establish that 
Campus and to provide continuity. She was a valued 
member of the faculty and of the college community. 

Queens continued 

In 1975, Peg was selected by the New Yoik Slate 
Education Department foi a special program in India, 
traveling extensively, absorbing the culture, education, 
politics and social fabric oflndia. All of this she latei used 
in Social Studies classes as well as for lectures and the 
creation of a filmstrip used by the State. She was one of 
eighteen people, nationwide, selected by the Department 
of Health, Education, and Welfare foi a 1- ullbirght-Hayes 
Fellowship in Egypt. Peg became extremely interested in 
the' culture and life st\les of this people and latei 
incorporated her knowledge into the curriculum. Ha 
segment of the resulting study dealt with the Dynamics of 
Change, the role ol women in various cultures. 

Margaret Harrington is a member of the Delta Epsilon 
Phi and of the honorary education societies Phi Delta 
kappa and Delta kappa Gamma. She met her husband. 
Mel Hardin, in Egypt during the Fullbright-Hayes 
Fellowship studies. Mel has his own business in museum 
services, painting restoration and conservation. They 
have a daughter, Jessica Anne, who just turned eight and 
attends Public School 29 on Staten Island. 

Advocate For The Mentally 111 Named School Superintendent 

Angela Shillitani McGrath '50 with her husband John. 

In recognition of her dedication to the mentally 
handicapped, the Virginia State Mental Health, Mental 
Retardation and Substance Abuse Services Board, presented 
Angela Shillitani McGrath '50 with its community service 
award for her work with the mentally ill. A wife, mother 
and successful insurance agent, Angela has and still does 
devote much of her spare time to assisting the mentally 
retarded, mentally ill, and substance abusers in her home 
community of Richmond, Virginia. 

The problems faced by the mentally handicapped are of 
personal interest to Angela and her family. She was 
motivated 14 years ago when her daughter, now 27, was 
diagnosed as having schizophrenia. After Anne Marie 
finished high school, Angela saw that there was very little 
that she alone could do for her, and she started to attend 
parent support groups to learn what other parents were 
experiencing and doing about it. They all had similarly 
handicapped young adults who were at home with 
nothing to do, and all were deeply concerned about what 
was going to happen to their children when they were 

It was concluded that competent professionals should 
develop programs to find where each handicapped person 
could be employed, and eventually to establish residences 
for them. County officials needed to know of this problem 
and Angela urged parents to be advocates - to go to 
hearings and contact legislative officials to tell them of 
these young people and their needs. It all came down to 
two requests: for employment and for appropriate 
residential services. 

When the county decided to establish group homes, 
Angela realized that most peopledon't understand mental 
disability and have the warped concept that mentally 
disabled should be left by themselves, that they are 
dangerous and can't do anything. Angela set about to 
educate citizens and to explain the need for employment 
training and the establishment of group homes in 
neighborhoods familiar to them. She co-founded the 
Henrico County Citizens for the Mentally Handicapped 
and served as its president for a number of years. 

When the Virginia Department of Mental Health, 
Mental Retardation and Substance Abuse Services needed 
more money for community services for its clients, Angela 
again saw the necessity to educate people for the need for 
financial assistance. She took part in a statewide coalition 
that went to the Virginia General Assembly two years ago 
and persuaded legislators to allocate $65 million for 
community services for the mentally disabled. This past 
year, 400 to 500 citizens attended a budget hearing to beg

Superintendent of the Rockville 
Center Diocese, which serves 
Nassau and Suffolk counties. 
She is an experienced educator 
and administrator who has 
served the diocese for more 
than 22 years.

of the class of 1968, has taught 
at both the elementary and 
secondary school levels. She 

S. Mary Kieran Hartigan, RSM % 6S wa s principal of Our Lady of 

Mercy Academy in Syosset from 1972-80, and principal of 
St. Pius X in Plainview from 1968-72. In 1980, she joined 
the St. John's University faculty as an adjunct professor. 
Four years later Sister Mary Kieran returned to the Diocese 
as Associate Superintendent of schools. Last July, when 
Dr. Hugh F. Carroll left to assume a position in public 
education, sister became Acting Superintendent. 

Sister Mary Kieran considers it an honor to serve the 
people of the diocese in such a high capacity. She believes 
that there is a need for the preservation, revitalization and 
extension of our Christian message and that an organized 
institution will preserve the integrity of our Catholic 
faith. Academic excellence and the development and 
growth of this faith is to be found in the Catholic 
education system. Catholic schools must enable parents to 
be the primary educators of their children, both in secular 
and religious subjects. 

Other major concerns facing Catholic education, she 
says, include developing the ministry of teaching, a 
comprehensive health education program, public re- 
lations, enrollment, and improved communication with

legislators not to cut funds for mental health. If money 
were not allocated for these positive goals, it would have to 
go for institutions, a far more costly operation. 

After two and a half years on a waiting list, Angela's 
daughter has moved into the county's supervised apart- 
ment program. She shares an apartment with two other 
mentally disabled women. Angela has three other grown 
children and three grandchildren and she now has some 
peace of mind knowing that Ann is, with assistance, able 
to be on her own. 

Angela will be retiring from active employment at the 
end of June this year. She is looking forward to spending 
time with the grandchildren, and to continuing her 
advocacy efforts for the mentally handicapped. 

Hero In Education 

Thomas F. Roeder '77 

Thomas F. Roeder, teacherat P.S. 138 in New York City, 
who was profiled in Alumnagram Winter '88, has been 
named a 1990 Reader's Digest American Hero in 
Education. Tom will receive $5,000 from the company for 
his efforts to integrate severely disabled students with their 
nondisabled peers in academic, social and work, settings. In 
addition, RS. 138 will receive $10,000 to support Tom's 
ongoing programs that further educational excellence. 

"The achievements of Thomas Roeder are truly 
heroic," said George V. Grune, Reader's Digest chairman 
and chief executive officer. "He has risen above the 
extraordinary challenges facing him and motivated his 
students to excel. He isan inspiration to people everywhere." 

The Reader's Digest American Heroes in Education 
Awards is a three-year program to honor educators in 10 
schools — individuals or teams of up to six teachers and 
principals — solving the critical problems facing schools 

The program, in its second year, is jointly sponsored by 
the Reader's Digest Association, Inc., the National 
Association of Secondary School Principals, National 
Education Association, National Association of Ele- 
mentary School Principals and American Federation of 
Teachers. A panel of leading educators representing these 
organizations chose this year's "heroes." 

Tom, along with the other 1990 award recipients, was 
chosen from 400 nominations submitted by fellow 
educators in public, private and parochial schools 
nationwide. Tom has been teaching students with severe 
physical and mental disabilities — and also challenging 
those who feel that his students are incapable of 
learning — for the past 13 years. 

Four years ago, Roeder initiated a "Community 
Integration Program" which brings disabled and non- 
disabled individuals together so they can learn from each 
other inside and outside the classroom. 

The biggest obstacle Tom Roeder faced was winning 
support for his program. He spent hundreds of hours 
developing the program, including searching for New 
York City worksites that could accomodate wheelchairs, 
as well as persuading employers to participate. Tom 
enlisted parents, community volunteers, college interns 
and professional therapists to provide the individual 
support students needed in his program. 

According to Ronald Miller, principal of P.S. 138, 
"Scores of disabled students today have a greater sense of 
dignity because of Tom's relentless determination. 
Hundreds of non-disabled students and community 
members also better understand their disabled peers. He 
has helped both groups discover friendship and mutual 

Tom was born and raised in Astoria, and still lives there. 
He graduated from St. Joseph's College, has a master's 
degree in education from Fordham and a certificate in 
Administration and Supervision from Hunter College. 
He is married and has four children, ages 9, 7, 5 and 2. 
Tom is a Euchai istic Minister in his parish, member of the 
New York Public Library Outreach Services Committee, 
the Association for Persons with Severe Handicaps, and 
the Self Advocacy Association. 

Tom says of his work: "I have used the gifts God has 
given me to improve the quality of life of individuals with 
disabilities and their families. Through the Community 
Integration Program developed at my school, with my 
colleagues, I have helped provide opportunities for 
students with severe disabilities to participate more fully 
in their community through recreation, learning and 
work activities. As a result, my students, and their non- 
disabled peers, have been able to share in the love and 
beauty of friendship." 

Active Retiree 

Evelyn Marzano Corcoran has always been a go-getter 
who likes hard work. In her positions as teacher, art 
director, sales manager and fashion consultant, she was 

Since her retirement in 1987, Evelyn has been taking 
classes, doing volunteer work and serving on citizens 

Not long ago, in the local Third Age newspaper, 
Evelyn saw that applications were being accepted for a 
Senior Intern program assisting members of the state 
legislature. She raced to the office to get her resume in 
under the wire and received a two-month appointment 
as a Legislative Senior Intern for the 21st District 

Representative, Jeannette Wood. 

The Senior Intern Program has been running since 
1981. This year more than 235 seniors applied for 15 
slots. Evelyn was accepted on the basis of her application 
and a personal interview. luteins are not secretaries. 
They sit in at meetings, do research, handle the 
Legislature's hot line and attend committee meetings. 

Competition is fierce for these two-to-three month 
positions. Evelyn would like to return for another 
internship but it's one to a customer. "It was one of the 
high points of my life to be a pan ol the sessions in the 
House Chambers," Evelyn said. "I'd recommend it for 
those who like to work." 

New Challenges 

Improving Reading 

Sister Ann McCarthy, CSJ '65 

The Diocese of Albany has named Sister Ann McCarthy 
CSJ to be Superintendent of Schools effective July 1, 1990. 
She has been principal of Bishop Kearney High School for 
the past ten years and previously served the diocese as 
assistant superintendent for instruction and supervision 
from 1976 to 1978 and as associate superintendent from 
1978 to 1980. 

During her tenure at Kearney, Sr. Ann restructured the 
Guidance Department to take care of health needs, both 
physical and emotional, of the students. A family 
counselor, personal counselors, a school nurse and a sex- 
education consultant nurse work together for the benefit 
of students and parents. 

Sister enlarged the Fine Arts Department. This year the 
Music Department, which has a regular band, started a 
marching band. Mary Corcoran, a music teacher, with the 
help of Sister Barbara Lynch, CSJ, puts the band members 
through their paces. The girls love it although it requires 
much time, energy and discipline, but each feels it an 
honor to be a part of the various city parades. 

An Honors Program was started by Sister Ann and 
Latin was re-introduced into the curriculum. Those who 
take it love it. This year Nancy Cribbin, a freshman, had a 
perfect score in the National Latin Examination given by 
the Classical Society. Honors students can be in the new 
Bridge Program, similar to and replacing the Save- A- Year 
program. Students take advance placement courses and 
the credits received are accepted by St. Joseph's College as 
well as some other colleges. 

In the Development Office started by Sister Ann, we find 
Sister Virginia Lake in charge of Public Relations. She 
photographs and reports all school events and news 
related to the school for newspapers in the area. She has 
been very successful in getting good press for Bishop 
Kearney. Parents, students, faculty and staff take pride in 
reading about their school! 

Kearney seniors do extremely well in receiving honors, 
medals and scholarships. This year three graduates 
received New York State Empire Scholarships, which are 
awarded solely on scholastic scores. Sister points out that 
these were three out of seven awards made to Brooklyn 
diocesan high schools - a tribute to wonderful teachers and 
wonderful students. 

In 1981 Bishop Kearney High School became the first 
community school in which lay people were hired for 
administrative positions. Dr. Gregory Rossicone (husband 
of Jo Nunziata Rossicone 70) is Associate Principal and 
Susan Burke '68 is Assistant Principal. 

"These have been ten good years," says Sister. "I've seen 
many of my goals accomplished and it's time to move on 
to new challenges." 

Joan Hunter De Olivera '49 

Joan Hunter De Oliveira, '49, had come belatedly to 
teaching. After three years working for Western Electric in 
Winston-Salem, NC, and a stint at Radio Station WAIR 
writing advertising copy, Joan went to Korea and Japan 
where she worked for the Red Cross in recreation, for 
seventeen months, until the end of the Korean war. 

On her return to the United States, Joan read that 
schools were desperately in need of teachers. She entered 
the Intensive Teacher Training Program for college 
graduates at SUNY on Long Island. In September 1955, 
Joan began teaching second grade in West Islip. 

Joan met Joseph De. Oliveira in the West Islip High 
School cafeteria in September 1956. They were married 
three years later. From then on, with the exception of a 
brief semester in Captree School teaching first grade, Joan 
stayed home to care for their seven children born in rapid 
succession between 1960 and 1970. 

The dismaying media reports on the poor reading 
scores of high school students were very real to Joe, who 
encountered these poor readers in his high school 
literature classes, some with scores as low as first grade. He 
felt that the fault lay with the poor teaching of reading and 
the "new" teaching methods in the lower grades. With 
Joan's encouragement and aid, he undertook to remedy 
the situation in a practical way. He enrolled in courses in 
the teaching of reading and began tutoring students after 
school and on Saturdays. 

In 1965 the Reading Improvement Center was opened 
in the De Oliveira home. In a short time more than forty 
students were coming for weekly instructions, and several 
capable teachers were engaged. Joe trained and supervised 
them while he continued his graduate studies (he earned a 
doctoral degree in Educational leadership in 1975) and 
taught English full time in high school. 

With five children in the house under the age of six, and 
the patter of little feet overhead, Joe concluded that a 
professional location would be more appropriate for the 
Center. Just after Joan came home from the hospital with 
Janine, baby number six, telephones were being installed 
in their new office on Main Street, East Islip, with a 
"private line" intercom to the house a mile away, so that 
Joan could continue to answer the phone during the day. 

Their children evidently had no reading difficulties. 
The two youngest are in college, Janine at Providence, RI, 
and Julianne at St. Francis in Loretto, PA. Joanne 
Schechter, 29, the oldest, is working for her husband, 
Larry, in multi-level marketing. Joanne and the three 
boys are graduates of Le Moyne College in Syracuse.

Barbara Oddo '86GS 

During her senior year at Grover Cleveland High 
School, Barbara Oddo grew increasingly discontent with 
the prospects of her future. She could not foresee the day, 
nearly 17 years later, when she would realize her dream of 
becoming a practicing attorney. 

Barbara grew up in a housing project of Manhattan's 
lower east side and moved with her family to Queens, at 
the age of eleven. She remembered the negative reaction of 
her family when she first expressed a desire to attend 
college after graduation. "I grew up in an environment 
where graduating from high school was an achievement 
in itself. A college education, especially for a woman, was 
considered a frivilous venture." Succumbing to the wishes 
of her family, Barbara went to work after her high school 
graduation. She began her career as a receptionist for a law 
firm, and later took a position in a nursing home as a 
nurses' aide. 

Although she enjoyed her work, Barbara was not 
content. Something was missing from her life and that 
something was an education-the key to professionalism. 
In 1976, she enrolled in Kingsborough Community 
College in Brooklyn and earned an Associate Degree in 
Nursing in 1979. For the next two years, she worked as a 
registered nurse at Lutheran Medical Center. 

In 1981 , she left bedside nursing and took a position as a 
medical review coordinator with the Kings County Health 

Care Review Organization. Her responsibilities included 
reviewing hospital medical records and imposing fiscal 
penalties for failure to comply with Medicare and 
Medicaid regulations. 

In 1983 Barbara joined the utilization staff at Hospital 
for Joint Diseases Orthopaedic Institute. There she met 
Eleanor Taylor, Director of the Department. Ellie, a 
graduate of the General Studies Division of St. Joseph's 
College, encouraged Barbara to continue her education. 
As a result, Barbara received a Bachelor of Science degree 
in Health Administration from St. Joseph's in 1986. 

While attending St. Joseph's, Barbara took a Business 
Law course taught by Professor Hugh Snow. Influenced 
by his sense of professionalism and her unquenched 
ambition to be an attorney, Barbara applied and was 
accepted by New York Law School in 1986. She earned a 
Juris Doctor degree and in 1989 was admitted to the New 
York State Bar. 

Barbara is currently working as a medical malpractice 
attorney with the law firm of Wilson Elser Moskowitz 
Edelman 8c Dicker, but will soon be taking a position with 
the New York City Health and Hospital Corporation in 
their Case Mix Management Division. Her position with 
HHC will involve close contact with the 1 1 city hospitals 
and 5 nursing homes, in an effort to assist them in 
reducing losses. 

Improving Reading, continued 

Touro Law School has her own law practice in 
Albuquerque, NM, where they live. Joseph, 26, has his 
own business in multi-media productions in the Boston 
area. John, 25, is a computer programmer for Stratus 
Corporation in Marlboro, MA. He will soon leave for a job 
in Hamilton, Bermuda, to work for the Bank of Bermuda. 
James, 23, works at the Hyatt Hotel in Manhattan, also in 
multi-media productions. 

The Reading Center continues to be a big part of the De 
Oleivera's lives. Because of the time it takes to keep the 

household going, Joan has a secretary to help manage the 
office and to do scheduling, reports and bookkeeping. 
With the children gone most of the time, Joan and Joe 
devote time to the local Chamber of Commerce, trips to 
their home in the Poconos, and travel. In recent years they 
have taken vacations in Portugal and Spain, California (to 
visit Joan's sister, Anne Hunter Tubridy '53), to Ireland in 
July 1989 and to the Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque last 
October. They are looking forward to full retirement, 
perhaps in New Mexico where the winters are a bit easier. 

Three Phonathons in '90 

Phonathon 1990 was different. For the first time, we 
used computer-generated phonathon sheets - a trial run. 
But our volunteers weren't fazed! After reviewing the new 
form and receiving instructions, they went right to work 
with their usual good-will and cheerfulness and racked up 
$40,867 in pledges at the Garden City site. 

Our volunteers at the General Studies phonathon, held 
on April 3rd, in their building at 265 Clinton Avenue drew 
pledges in the amount of $4,340. This is excellent 
considering that they had far fewer phones than we had at 
Garden City. 

The Patchogue campus held its phonathon on April 23 
using all available phones and raised $3,810, another great 
showing. We are indebted to all the volunteers whom we 
list below.

Asked whether any alumni/ae fail to honor their 
commitments, we assessed last year's records. 433 members 
failed to fulfill their pledges by June 30, 1989. We believe 
there was a reason, an unforeseen obligation that took 
priority over these pledges. In some cases it was just an 
oversight and some were paid after that date. However, we 
always appreciate it when we are advised of inability to 
honor these pledges, so that we do not carry them on our 
books for further reminders. (Alumni ae should not feel 
obligated to make a pledge at phonothon and should not 
do so if they cannot or will not follow through.) 

When our Alumni Fund was first inaugurated in 1966, 
after our first capital funds campaign for the McEntegart 
Library, Sister Virginia Therese Callahan, then Director 
of Development, using guidelines of other fund-raising 
colleges, determined that $25.00 from each alumna was a 
fair share. Many alumnae began their annual giving of 
that amount to the Alumni Fund. Some gave more and 
those who could not give the "fair share" were asked to 
give something each year in order to yield a good 
percentage figure because corporations, foundations and 
businesses look at that figure when we approach them for 
aid. It is an indication of alumni loyalty. As you probably 
noted from the Donor Report of last year, that figure was 
23%. We hope that non-givers will help us to raise this 
considerably next year, our Diamond Jubilee year. 

When the Alumni Association was first formed in the 
early '20's, dues were set to cover the modest costs of 
maintenance and mailings, as well as publication of 
alumnae news. These costs have increased as the number 
of alumnae/i has increased. We believe that each graduate 
should consider these facts and help as much as possible 
by giving annually.

Blake. RN. of Seaford Harbor, NY wrote of the death of her mother, Marie 
Rickerby Blake, from complications of colon cancer, on December 22. 
1989 Going through her belongings, she found many mementos of her 
happy years at St. Joseph's "Those who remember my mother know what 
a comedian she could be Although she suffered from short-term memory 
loss, she knew her condition was terminal, but she never let that reality get 
her depressed," writes Margo. "She was entertaining and spontaneous 
until days before she died I had promised her I wouldn't put her in a 
Nursing Home because she wanted to die in her own home 'by the sea' I 
was able to keep this promise because I'm an R.N.. . I'm enclosing a gift in 
her memory to 'her best college." Please remember Marie and her loved 
ones in your prayers. Margaret Ferry Healy and Nick will spend the

another trip to Ireland with the St. Joseph's group during Easter week The

the Spring Luncheon which Mary Kearney, Mary Phelan and I attended, 
following Mass at St. Leo's. What joy to see so many of our sister-class, the 
'30s, who celebrated their 60th 1 Mary White Kearney told us of the very 
special honor to be bestowed on her husband, John He received the 
Thomas More Award given by the Catholic Lawyers Guild. We were 
saddened at the news of the death of Rev. John Ansbro, brother of Kathlyn 
Ansbro Wurts The Ansbro family was blessed for many years with two 
priests and one remains to continue his service and dedication. We will 
have our own Mass for deceased classmates in September - so please don't 
make any plans to go to California or Greece or the moon, until you hear 

from me In between times, I will be bedazzled by the sights of the 
Canadian Northwest, Banff, Lake Louise, etc. etc. I think I must be the last 
one to visit that scenic area. Au voir!

It was with deep sorrow that we learned of the death of Isabel Farrell on 
March 24th. She had been suffering for the past few years but continued to 
be her happy self and tried to participate in all her normal activities. We 
could always depend upon Isabel Mass of the Resurrection was 
celebrated by Bishop McGann at St Agnes Cathedral in Rockville Center 
and his eulogy was a beautiful tribute to Isabel She will be greatly missed. 
Please remember her in your prayers. It was such a surprise to see Msgr. 
William Granger Ryan at St Leo's where he concelebrated the Mass It 
brought back fond memories of his religion classes Mary Pinter Brandes 
and Betty Pyne Dunleavy were the only ones from '36 to attend the 
lunchon. Terrace on the Park is such a beautiful setting and more should 
have been there to enjoy it with us One person who truly wanted to come 
was Ethel Chambers Meldon, who lives in Glenside. PA. a Philadelphia 
suburb Efforts were made by Katherlne Patton and Mary Ann Horan. who 
chaired the event, to find someone who might be coming from that area, 
but to no avail Ethel spent her childhood and part of her married life in 
Corona. Her parish was Our Lady of Sorrows, but after marriage to 
George, she lived in St. Leo's parish Her son. Greg, graduated from St. 
Leo's school. Ethel was up to St. Leo's about two years ago to attend the 
wedding of her sister-in-law's daughter. Cora, who had her reception at 
Terrace on the Park Maybe we will see you next year, Ethel, at our 55th 
reunion which will be held again at Terrace on the Park! John and Virginia 
Norton Morgan plan to take a pilgrimage to Med|ugorje in August. We do 
hope to see many of you at the Fall Luncheon. Write or call me with a

I visited by telephone two of our classmates recently. Three years ago, 
Joan Byrne Gibilaro moved from Brooklyn to Windham, NY, when her 
husband retired. The family, four children and three grandsons, had 
vacationed in that area for many years Although she misses the big city 
hustle, Joan finds the countryside beautiful and life very peaceful. In 
October 1 989, when Anne McDonald McCully returned from her summer 
home in Damariscotta, ME, to her winter quarters on the Isle of Palms 
outside Charleston, she faced the devastation of Hurricane Hugo. She and 
her neighbors have worked hard to repair the damage. Anne's older sister, 
Betty, died on March 16th and we offer our sympathy to Anne and the 
family. Anne's son is the curator of the Army Museum at Fort Dix, daughter, 
Annette, teaches at Glassboro College. Mary Burns Qulnn and Annette 
Nolan attended the dedication of the Callahan Library on the Patchogue 
Campus on May 1st. The only representatives of '44 at the Spring 
Luncheon were Mary Bennett Burke and Rosemary Chrlstman Casey A 
note from Eileen Kelley Coulter and Robert reads: "Kindly pray for the 
repose of the soul of our special angel daughter, Karen Maureen. She 
passed away peacefully on November 18, 1989." The Coulters live in Tom's 
River. New Jersey Jeanne Russell Scova writes that she retired from 
teaching in the Clarkston School District (NY) after 31 years, 29 of which 
were teaching Special Education. Her last year was spent on a pilot 
program in which she set up a computer lab for learning disabled students 
in the senior high It was open all 8 periods a day and the students were 
able to come in and do their homework and other assignments whenever 
they had a free period. The English teachers also made use of the room for 
teaching students written expression. The program went well and the 
district had her back this year as a computer consultant to continue the 
program. Next year they want her to set up the program in our second high 
school. Jeanne's youngest daughter. Sara, has become a paralegal and 
likes it so well that she has decided to become a lawyer She figures she'll 
get her degree in 6 years. Sue and Sarah still live at home and are great 
travellers. They plan to go to Moscow, Rome and London in July, together 
with their uncle Brother Peter Russell, CFX. Jeanne's married daughter, 
Maryanne Davanzo and her husband. Mike, bought a house last year and 
find the experience delightful Mim has a built-in decorating ability and has 
done a fantastic job decorating. She found a "hoosier" antique kitchen 
cupboard with a pull out work space at a flea market and it looks great in 
the kitchen. We extend our sympathy to Mary Bennett Burke on the death 
of her mother, Marguerite Bennett.

I (Barbara Frohnhofer Feldman) received a pleasant phone call from 
Carole Rooney recently. Carole has been in data-processing in NYC for 
twenty years and is very active in her professional association. However 
there is a possibility of a career change to selling financial products 
Although this profession is along the same lines, she finds that getting 
back to the books is quite a change. For many years Carole has been 
actively involved in St. Agnes Parish, a business parish in midtown 
Manhattan, and is coordinating a huge celebration in honor of the fortieth 
anniversary of a priest of her parish. She has chaired so many parish 
activities in the past that she easily handles all the work involved and still 
finds time to work in the parish soup kitchen. Carol gave me Gabrielle 
Tlnley McDonough's phone number For the past twelve years, Gabrielle 
has been teaching sixth grade at Resurrection-Ascension parish school 
and loves it. Her son, Kevin, is in the medical school at the University 
College in Galway, Ireland and will finish in two years. Son. Brian, is 
finishing up at Fordham University and working as a teacher's aide in 
Archbishop Molloy as well Gaby and her husband purchased a piece of 
land in Westchester County and now divide their time between Queens 
and Cross River. It was so much fun getting all this news and I hope to hear 
from more classmates Pat Coleman Campbell says that she hasn't written 
much in this column in recent years, but her conscience was pricked by a 
letter from Eileen Scanlon Fitzgerald. "I'm in word-processing, so I have no 
excuse for not producing an update for our class." Eileen is a librarian in 
the NYC school system. Her son, John '88, is in the Peace Corps (see 
Winter Alumnagram page 9). Son Kevin received a degree from Pace in 
1989. Daughter, Kathleen is a student at SJC and Patrick, youngest son, is 
at St. Francis. I recently called Lynn Soerenson Thornton to offer my 
condolences on the death of her husband. Gerry. She is holding up well 
and credits her close friends and fellow classmates. Ada Tracey Stankard,
