Sister Margaret Louise Shea, CSJ 

Pioneer in 

Pre-school Education 

Sister Margaret Louise Shea, CSJ 

Sister Margaret Louise Shea, CSJ, a pioneer in pre-school 
education and Director of the Dillon Child Study Center of St. 
Joseph's College from 1942 to 1980, died on December 21, 
1993, at the age of 83. Graced with a keen intellect, a deep 
interest in childhood development and a generosity in serving 
others. Sister Margaret Louise was an outstanding educator and 
exemplary Sister of St. Joseph. 

Born in Brooklyn, Margaret Shea attended Our Lady of 
Perpetual Help elementary school, and after completing her high 
school education at Bishop McDonnell's in 1930, entered the 
novitiate of the Congregation of St. Joseph in Brentwood. While 
a novice, she taught fifth grade at St. Teresa of Avila in 
Brooklyn. Her first teaching assignment as a Sister was a sixth 
grade class at Our Lady of Victory. 

In September 1934, Sister Margaret Louise matriculated at St. 
Joseph's College and began full-time study. The following 
month, St. Joseph's College opened a pre-school for children 
between the ages of 2 - 4 1/2, and offered pre-school development 
courses. Sister took a lively interest in Child Study which was 
under the aegis of the Psychology Department. In 1938, having 
earned her bachelor's degree in Psychology, she taught at the 
newly founded kindergarten of the preschool, while pursuing 
studies for a master's degree at Columbia University. She 
received he MA in January 1940 and was introduced to college 
teaching by Margaret Gardner, the Director of the Preschool. 

In 1942, when Margaret Gardner left St. Joseph's to be 
married, Sister succeeded her as Director. Meantime a major in 
Child Study was established which attracted so many students 
that a Child Study Department was created and Sister became 

From 1946 to 1949, Sister Margaret attended Catholic 
University full time and received her doctorate in Psychology - 
Psychiatry in 1950. She returned to the college as a full time 
professor and Director of the Dillon Center. In 1955, she 

succeeded in getting the Child Study Program registered in 
Albany, which enabled students to receive their teaching 
certificate for early childhood classes, automatically. 

Acknowledged as a leader and expert in the study of child 
development. Sister Margaret shared her expertise as an adjunct 
professor at the Catholic Universities of Washington and Puerto 
Rico during summers from 1960-68. A popular lecturer, she 
willingly gave lectures on Child Psychology at parish and 
diocesan programs, at New York City Board of Education, and 
at State and County conferences. St. Vincent's Child Care 
Services welcomed Sister as a consultant. 

Sister Margaret was an active member of the Board of Child 
Care Institutions in New York City and served on a task force for 
the evaluation of the Day Care Centers of NYC Agency for Child 
Development. In 1973, Sister Margaret received the Mary L. 
Brady Award from the Catholic Teachers Association. In 1981, 
the Brooklyn Borough President presented her with a Certificate 
of Merit for her service on his Advisory board. Skilled in 
psychological testing, she directed testing programs for several 
religious congregations, including the Sisters of St. Joseph. 

Professional memberships included the New York academy 
of Education and the American Psychological Association. In 
1981 Sister became a fellow of the Menninger Foundation, a 
group devoted to mental health problems of the nation. Last 
October, Sister Margaret, who, was an active member of the 
Fellowship of Catholic Scholars, flew to California to attend 
their annual conference. 

These professional involvements did not limit Sister's full 
participation in the religious activities of her local convent 
community and of the congregation. She served as a delegate to 
the recent chapters. A charter member of the Board of Trustees 
in Brentwood College, she also served as secretary from 1955 to

Deans^ Presentations to the Board of Trustees 

During 1993 our college Deans made brief presentations of their respective divisions to the St. Joseph's College Board of 
Trustees. Thomas Travis, PhD., Dean of General Studies, both campuses, presented his report on February 17th. After a brief 
history of the college read by S. Mary Florence Burns, PhD, S. Margaret Buckley EdD, Dean of Arts & Sciences in Brooklyn, 
reported at the May 12th meeting, and S. Jean Marie Amore, PhD., Dean of Arts & Sciences, in Patchogue, on October 13, 
1993. We wish to share these informative up-to-date reviews with you. 


The establishment of the Division of General Studies in 
the mid 1970"s and its almost overnight success, is best 
explained in the context of two interrelated factors: the 
first is that the State Education Department was directing 
its colleges to increase educational opportunities for adults, 
minorities, and women. To accomplish this, the State 
encouraged colleges to be more flexible with regard to 
transfer credit policies, program requirements, and 

In response, St. Joseph's established the BS degree in 
General Studies, a highly flexible degree designed around 
the special needs of working adults. Special policies and 
procedures were put in place to serve these new students: 
non-restrictive admission requirements, transfer credit for 
prior professional training, credit for prior experiential 
learning, and convenient once-a-week classes offered 
nights and weekends, oftentimes at the work site. 

The critical second factor supporting the Division's 
initial success was the push by the National League for 
Nursing to encourage registered nurses to continue their 
education and to earn the baccalaureate. From the 
beginning, the Division targeted this population, and it 
proved to be ideal. Within two to three years, we had over 
a thousand nurses taking our courses. 

The Divisions ability to respond to this almost 
instantaneous demand underscores the important function 
that General Studies serves for the College. By design and 
in practice, the Division is an innovative, adaptive unit, 
which - happily-enjoys a great deal of support not only 
from the administration but from the faculty as well. 

In 1979, th Division expanded its programs to include a 
BS in Community Health and a BS in Health 
Administration. There were two purposes for this 
expansion. One was to better serve the nurses. The second 
was the anticipation of a lessening demand from the RN 
population. To prepare for this, we took our first steps 
towards diversification. These new degrees were designed 
to be marketed to an array of allied health professionals, 
including X-ray technicians, dental hygienists, lab 
technicians, and administrative support personnel. Our 
objective was to get our promotional material into every 
unit of every health care facility on Long Island and in 
New York City. 

In 1986, to strengthen our offerings to nurses, the 
College registered a B.S. in Nursing (BSN). This is a 
structured program that is costly for the College both with 
regard to the expense of additional full-time faculty and 
the need for specialized equipment. However, it is the 
preferred degree of the National League for Nursing and 

we deemed the BSN essential if we wanted to continue to 
serve the nursing population. It has paid off. Today, 
approximately twenty percent of our students in the 
division of General Studies are in the BSN program, and 
this new offering has done much to enhance the reputation 
of the College with the health community. 

Concurrently, we moved to diversify our programs to 
serve a non-health population. This was necessary because 
the enrollment for the health majors was declining - a 
reflection of ( 1 ) trends in that profession and (2) an 
increase in competition from other colleges. 

In keeping with our mission to serve working adults, the 
next obvious area to develop was management. At first this 
took the form of developing a series of credit-bearing 
certificates attractive to adults climbing the management 
ladder. For example, we have business related certificates 
in: Leadership, Management, Human Resources, Training 
and Staff Development, and Data and Information 
Processing. What we did with these was to bring them to 
the work place and offer them on-site. The courses for 
these certificates would be presented in three hour blocks, 
typically at the conclusion of the working day. In this way 
we encouraged college-shy adults to take incremental 
clusterings of courses that bring them so close to a degree 
that they can no longer put off making the final 
commitment to earning the bachelor's degree. 

To further encourage enrollment in the management 
area, we developed a special, one-of-a-kind program called 
the B.S. in Management of Human Resources. This is a 
flexible degree: built on the prior learning assessment 
rubric, and focused on the management of people. It is off 
to a good start and attracting adult students from 
management as well as the human resources sector. 

Additionally. I want to highlight several activities that 
support non-traditional learners and contribute to the 
vitality of the communities served by the Brooklyn and 
Suffolk Campuses. 

Law Enforcement Personnel Grants 

Begun in 1989, this program involves offering tuition 
grants to New York City Police attending the Brooklyn, 
Campus. The success of this program has been 
tremendous. Police currently represent approximately one- 
fourth of our Brooklyn General Studies population, which 
helps to explain the Division's record-breaking high 

Training and Development 

This effort is just getting off the ground. It involves 
offering non-credit workshops and seminars - on site or on 

campus - to employees of hospitals and businesses. We can 
present a range of topics. For example, we have done 
Supervisory Skills at Booth Memorial Hospital, and Lotus 
and WordPerfect at our Suffolk Campus for the employees 
of North Atlantic Industries. 

Continuing Education 

The Summer Non-Credit program was started on the 
Suffolk Campus in 1991. We offered 19 workshops and 
enrolled 275 people. In the summer of 1992, the program 
showed substantial growth, with 31 offerings and a total 
enrollment of 456. And this is the trend we expect to 

In closing, I would say that for the future the Division 
will continue its efforts to identify new student populations 
and to devise better ways to deliver our services to them. 
In this way, we will make our contribution to help insure 
the success of the College. 


St. Joseph's College of Arts & Sciences here in 
Brooklyn is closely identified with the college founded in 
1916 then known as St. Joseph's College for Women. 
While many aspects of the college have evolved over time, 
we continue to reflect the vision of the founders - to 
provide an education characterized by academic excellence 
and value orientation, with provision for career 

Our student body of men and women comes from the 
five boroughs, primarily Brooklyn and Queens. Most come 
directly from high school, though we welcome returning 
students. Although we recruit in the public and private 
high schools, most come from Catholic high schools. Our 
student body reflects the ethnic diversity of the 
metropolitan area, with about 25-30% being minority 

St. Joseph's is a liberal arts college, rooted in the liberal 
arts tradition. We offer a wide range of majors, the newest 
being Accounting and Business Administration, and the 
largest being Child Study. We have strong majors in 
Biology, Chemistry, English, History, Mathematics, 
Psychology, Social Sciences, Spanish and Speech. 

We are proud of all our graduates, many of whom gain 
admission to medical and law schools and to graduate 
programs, and who have gone on to successful careers. Our 
reputation for preparing well-qualified teachers for the 
elementary and secondary schools is outstanding. 
Principals seek our graduates. We have a large and 
supportive alumni group in the area. 

The faculty's primary commitment is to teaching and 
helping students to develop their full potential. Each year 
our graduates are given a questionnaire. One question we 
ask is what they value most in their education. Every year 
the same response stands out - the close relationship with 
faculty and other students. This is why applicants have 
been attracted to St. Joseph's College. 

Although the small size of our college imposes 
limitations in terms of scheduling of classes and range of 
faculty, it allows each student to be known personally and 
to receive the support and challenge needed. We believe 

this accounts for our high retention and graduation rates. 

You have all read during the past year of violence and 
hate-speech incidents on college campuses. This has not 
happened at St. Joseph's because students know each other 
as persons, therefore there is no atmosphere of fear or 

We continue to maintain our commitment to Brooklyn 
and the metropolitan area. We exist ina very competitive 
educational environment, surrounded by the huge public 
system and many private colleges. After a period of 
struggle, we are seeing an increase in enrollment, the result 
of serious and consistent efforts of our Admission staff. 
We have weathered the worst of the enrollment crunch. We 
are particularly pleased with the increase in the number of 
transfer students, especially those coming from 
Kingsborough Community College where an Early 
Childhood program articulates well with our Child Study 

We look to our past with gratitude and our future with 
optimism. If we continue to grow, our big problem will be 
parking space! 


In 1971, St. Joseph's College established an extension 
in Brentwood which served Junior and Senior years. It was 
moved to Patchogue in 1979 with about 350 students. 
Since then the Suffolk Campus, now serving all four years, 
has grown to a current enrollment of 2,039. 

I refer to an article I read recently, "Student 
Expectations of College." It states that because, nationally, 
the number of non-traditional students in colleges now 
significantly outweighs the number of 18 to 22 year old 
students, there has been a change in values, expectations 
and beliefs. No longer is college the central activity of 
their lives. Work and family overshadow this. Students 
want education nearby and at convenient hours. They seek 
a stripped-down version of college without extra curricular 
life and activities or specialty courses. 

The non-traditional adult student makes up about one- 
third of the student body. We are being challenged more 
than ever to be faithful to the mission of the College, while 
at the same time meeting the needs of today's students. 
The mission of the college has always been to provide 
students with excellent professional preparation. We also 
envision the college as a time of personal change, a time 
for students to dream and reflect and to see differently, 
themselves, the world, and their place in the world. 

We see the narrow expectations of the adult student 
reflected in .the younger full-time student who is working 
thirty or more hours a week. Today, as we plan for the 
future, our challenge is to continue to prepare each student 
for a life characterized by integrity, intellectual and 
spiritual values, social responsibility and service - a life 
worthy of the College motto: Esse non videri - to be, not to 
seem, I think we are doing this. 

We have an ideal population here. Of the 605 new 
students accepted in September 1993, 150 are freshmen; 
275 are transfer students from Suffolk. Nassau, and 

Coiuiinied on page 4 

Farmingdale Community Colleges, Stony Brook and other 
colleges; 180 are adult returning students. This has proven 
enriching. The serious, experienced, adult students are 
good models and friends for the freshmen, while the 
freshman qualities of spontaneity, idealism, and openness 
are contagious. 

We draw high school students from Riverhead, 
Mattituck and East Hampton in eastern Suffolk, to 
Lindenhurst in western Suffolk, and occasionally from one 
or two schools in Nassau. Our freshman class presents 
students from about 40 public high schools and 14 private 
schools. Over half of them receive financial aid (college 
grants and state and federal funds) and 66% of them have 
additional loans averaging $3700 a year. 

As the number of women entering the work force 
grows, we have an increasingly larger number of women 
coming to college part-time. Business and Accounting, 
majors that were predominantly male, have an almost 
equal number of women and men. Many of these women 
pursue their degrees while balancing a number of other 
responsibilities and stresses. 

Regarding our academic program, the Child Study 
major is the largest, with an enrollment of about 450 
students; Accounting and Business Administration majors 
are second; Human Relations, Recreation Therapy, and 
Psychology are also popular majors: and the traditional 
liberal arts programs are strong in servicing students with 
both major and core courses. The newest programs on our 

campus, the math major and the math/computer science 
major, have attracted a number of academically strong 

Surveys sent to alumni one year after graduation are 
consistent in indicating that 86% of alumni are employed, 
62% of the 86% are employed in the fields related to their 
major, and 43% of our graduates pursue graduate study 
within one year of graduation. 

Our buildings are well used. The Clare Rose Playhouse 
has earned a fine reputation for itself in the Suffolk area. 
Performances are usually sold out. Students receive 
anexcellent experience from working there. The plays also 
include cast members from the community who have 
experience in acting in local theaters, and some interesting 
networking has occurred. The Callahan Library, made 
highly attractive by its structure and its state-of-the-art 
services, has added significantly to the academic 
environment of the campus. It is used well by faculty, 
students, and the local community. 

As we grow and plan new programs, we face some 
practical as well as philosophical questions. How large do 
we want the Suffolk Campus to become? What directions 
should our growth and development take? How do we 
address our immediate needs for more classroom and 
office space, additional parking, and more appropriate 
areas for students to gather and hold their varied events?

Dr. Calherine Scorcia Kane '55 

Dr. Catherine Kane, Pediatrician and Medical Director 
at Angel Guardian Home in Brooklyn, retired in June 
1993, after thirty years of service to this well-known child 
care agency. At the time of her retirement she was 
responsible for the health and well-being of 800 foster 
children. Her first association with Angel Guardian was as 
a social worker during summer vacations, while attending 
Downstate Medical School. 

Catherine, a pre-med student at SJC, graduated in 1955. 
Asked why she chose St. Joseph's, she says she didn't. She 
had applied to and was accepted by Hunter College, but on 
the day of her graduation was offered a full four-year 
scholarship to St. Joseph's College. Coming from Bishop 
McDonnell High School, a large school, Catherine loved 
the smallness of St. Joseph's and the more intimate, caring 
faculty. She has made wonderful, lasting friendships - she 
still plays Trivia regularly with Joan Scanlon Owens, as 
classmate pal. She enjoyed the opportunity of serving as 
President of the Undergraduate Association and was 
delighted in her junior year to be nominated to Who's Who 
in American Colleges and Universities. Kay majored in 
Chemistry and had a double minor in Biology and Math. 
Because she loved her freshman English course and was so 
fond of Sister Joseph Immaculate, she took additional 
English courses just for the enjoyment 

After graduation in 1955, Kay entered Downstate 
Medical College and received her medical Degree in 1959. 
Her internship, in Internal Medicine, was taken at Kings 
County Hospital Center. Dr. Scorcia then started her 
Residency in Pediatric Medicine in St. Vincent's Hospital 
in Manhattan. "It was the first time I took any of my 
education outside of Brooklyn" she mused. However, she 
returned to Kings County for her second year of Pediatrics 
and in her third year there, she served as Chief Resident. 
For the next three years. Dr. Scorcia worked full time in 
the Children's Emergency Room of Kings County 

In 1959, Catherine Scorcia married Walter Kane, whom 
she met in her junior year in college at a St. Patrick's Day 
party. He was a student at Manhattan College. They 
quickly became good friends. Walter was in the Manhattan 
College ROTC program and after his graduation in 1955, 
he served four years in various Air Force assignments as a 
.meteorologist, while Catherine attended medical school. 
When he finished his tour of duty. Walter, whose ambition 




was to become a doctor, entered the State University of 
New York Downstate Medical School and both he and Kay 
worked to pay his tuition. He received his medical degree 
in 1963 and practiced as a neuropathologist until his 
retirement in 1986. 

With the arrival of Walter, Jr., Catherine left Kings 
County Hospital to take care of him, and she worked part- 
time at Angel Guardian Home as staff physician. Fifteen 
years later she became Medical Director as well. Walter, 
Jr. is a television reporter and producer in Grand Rapids, 
MI where he lives with his wife Nancy and son, Daniel. 

Reflecting on her practice from her early years to date, 
Catherine said it was an escalating job. Pediatrics in 
general is no longer preventive practice. Many of the foster 
children have more complications due to the social climate 
of drug use. homelessness, poor prenatal care and 
premature delivery, and care has to be more 
comprehensive. Pediatrics today deals with developmental 
delays, learning problems and serious infections such as 
HIV and Hepatitis. The number of Children with emotional 
problems has escalated. The number of children with 
referrals to specialty clinics has greatly increased. A 
coordination of services is needed for almost every child, 
that is, services of a child development specialist, a 
psychologist, a psychiatrist, a therapist, an educational 
consultant as well as the help of a nursing staff and a 
secretarial staff. It is a team approach. 

The necessity and the satisfaction of seeing a child 
obtain the services he needs and seeing him progress, 
drove Dr. Kane to work long days and even to continue at 
home to catch up on paper work. To her, each child was 
his special endearing self with his special needs. 

Many of her "children", now grown up, have come back 
to visit Dr. Kane, still regarding her as their pediatrician. 

Sharon, a former foster child and now a married adult, 
as a teenager adopted the Drs. Kane as her parents and they 
reciprocated the attachment by considering her their 
daughter. She became a part of the Kane family, a sister to 
their son and an aunt to their grandson. Sharon and her 
husband join the Kanes for all holiday celebrations. 

Somewhat loathe to leave the problems she has dealt 
with for so many years, Kay nevertheless looks ahead to 
enjoying her retirement with travel, leisure reading and 
spending time with family and friends. 




Denne McLaughlin '79GS 

"Gold stars all the way," say residents of Meridian 
Nursing Center of West Melbourne, Florida, for their new 
Nursing Director, Derine McLaughlin, who took over this 
position in March 1992. Well qualified, Derine earned her 
bachelor of science degree in Health Care Administration 
from St. Joseph's College in 1979, and her master's degree 
in Community Health, majoring in Health Administration, 
from Brooklyn College in 1990. 

Derine Colyard came from a family of eight 
children, and having to take care of the younger ones 
motivated her towards her nursing career. A native 
Jamaican, she entered Kingston Public Hospital School of 
Nursing at age 17. After receiving her Registered Nurse 
diploma in 1966, Derine studied midwifery and received 
certification as a midwife from Aberdeen Maternity 
Hospital in Scotland where qualifications were strict and 
training was detailed and exacting. 

On completion of this training, Derine returned to 
Jamaica where she practiced her nursing skills in 
midwifery, medical and surgery techniques, and also added 
operating room techniques, for appro.ximately two years. 
During this time she worked at the Mandeville General 
Hospital, Nuttal and St. Joseph's hospitals in Kingston. 

However, by the end of 1971, Derine again had the urge 
to travel overseas and left Jamaica to practice at hospitals 
in Grand Cayman then at Princess Margaret Hospital in 
Nassau, Bahamas. In both hospitals she increased her 
operating room techniques and was promoted to the head 
nurse position. Although her dream was to live in Florida, 
her husband's job took them to New York in 1972. Her 
first job was as an operating room staff nurse in a small 
Brooklyn hospital. 

To add to her experiences, Derine decided to work in 
geriatric nursing. In 1975 she took a position as charge 
nurse at the Linden Day Care Center, formerly Baptist 
Medical Center of New York - a skilled nursing facility on 
Linden Boulevard in Brooklyn. Working with the elderly 
was such a satisfying experience that she stayed with it. 
There her knowledge and expertise in caring for the 

geriatric population was immensely increased and 
acknowledged by her superiors. She was rewarded by 
being promoted up the ranks to Director of Nursing 
Services in which capacity she served for four years. 

In 1991 her son, Elvin Jr., after graduating from 
Brooklyn Technical High School, was accepted by Florida 
Tech. Derine was inspired to send her resume for jobs in 
Florida. By December 1991 the family was relocated to 
Florida. To her delight. Meridian Nursing Center contacted 
her in March about a position as Director of Nursing in 
their 179-bed. long-term care facility which offered 
complete skilled, intermediate, and Alzheimers care. 
Meridian's goals include helping residents to live as 
independently as possible and equipping them to live 
outside the center when possible. 

Kathy Kondolf-Harmer, Meridian's administrator said 
that Derine McLaughlin's qualifications and knowledge of 
health-care facilities was the key to her selection. Her 
duties include directing nurse services and nursing, hiring, 
and making sure that Meridian meets regulatory 
guidelines. "Her background and experience made her a 
top candidate," she continued. "She has integrated well 
with the staff. We recently participated in a state survey 
and she was instrumental in Meridian Nursing Center 
receiving another superior rating." 

Residents like her, too, because she gives her own 
personal time to them and is always available. "To me 
she's a boon I never expected to have. I've been in two 
other nursing homes before this one, and she towers above 
all of their people," says Florence Bross, who lives in 

Derine's husband Elvin Sr.. graduated from Pratt 
Institute in Brooklyn, NY, in 1983 with a bachelor's 
degree in Construction Management. He was employed 
with the City of New York until March 1992. He has now 
established his own business.

Di: Dolores Ama 

"Esse non videri", so often quoted half-jokingly by Dr. 
Dolores Amar in conversation, well identified the 
productive life she lived. Her peaceful death on October 
21st brought an end to many years of service to others in 
various areas of the medical profession. 

From her earliest years. Dolores wanted to be a doctor. 
Her Mother encouraged her in her ambition, although at 
that time the medical profession offered little opportunity 
for women. After graduation from elementary school, 
Dolores planned to attend Bay Ridge High in Brooklyn. 
However, when she spoke of her ambition to the principal, 
she was advised to choose a more traditional career. 
Disappointed but not daunted, Dolores transferred to St. 
Agnes Academic High in Rockville Center. Here, not only 
the principal but the teachers also urged her to continue in 
her chosen path. She enjoyed science and saw a dream 
being fulfilled. She began her college work at Hunter, but 
again had no success in furthering her medical education. 
Once more she made a transfer - to St. Joseph's College 
where her desire finally began to become a reality. We all 
know how she loved the college and how proudly she 
spoke of her wonderful education. Father Dillon 
immediately concurred with the pursuit of her dreams and 
upheld her in every decision. 

Sister Clotilde became her most treasured professor as 
she sought to provide the necessary background for 
Medical School for Dolores. Under the direction of Father 
Dillon, Sister Clotilde taught Dolores and another student 
the necessary pre-med courses, not at that time included in 
the catalog. The goal seemed near, but another problem 
appeared. What school would accept a woman? At last she 
found Women's Medical College of the University of 
Pennsylvania. In 1943 Dolores Amar received her medical 
degree with distinction. She served her internship in 
Women's Hospital. 

Since next to family and St. Joseph's, her country was a 
great love, Dolores joined the Army. She served two years 
and was discharged with the rank of Captain. She was 
"tough" - so said her Army mates, but her intelligence and 
devotion earned their respect and admiration. 

Dolores became a general practitioner in her home town 
in Seaford. Her specialty was obstetrics and gynecology in 

which she was certified in 1957. Her love for her patients 
was famous and she followed the babies she delivered as 
long as she could, always interested in their progress. 
Dolores estimated that she had delivered some 2,000 
babies, including, in 1957, the first set of triplets born at 
East Meadowbrook Hospital. She also remembered her 
teachers, the sisters from St. Agnes, as well as her 
classmates, and served them in their need. 

Dolores loved life, but she was a most self-effacing 
person, never realizing how much of a pioneer she was - as 
apparent in her becoming the first woman Medical 
Examiner in Nassau County, in 1948. At the time of her 
appointment, Newsday noted that she had often responded 
to accidents as a member of the Meadowbrook staff. 
"Buttoned into a trench coat, her light brown hair showing 
under a small cap. Dr. Amar was well known to members 
of the press who usually found her bent over an accident 
victim when they arrived on the scene." 

A conservative by declaration, Dolores still saw the 
need to move forward in social service. Upon retirement 
she volunteered to work in Pilgrim Psychiatric Center in 

Dolores had a wonderful sense of humor. While arguing 
with me about politics - Dolores a staunch Republican and 
I, a most liberal Democrat - she would suddenly see the 
fun of it and have a hearty laugh. She had a lovely voice 
which she explained as a gift from her father, a talented 
musician. Last summer, at her 75th birthday party, she 
honored us with a song. Her voice was still lovely to hear. 

All of us who knew and enjoyed Dolores as a devoted 
friend who worried about each one of us, will certainly 
miss her. But her spirit of quiet, courageous womanliness 
will live on as surely as "Esse non videri." 

Sister Dorothx Mercedes Finn '39 

Dr. Dolores Amar is survived by five nephews Peter 
Amar of Gaylord, Michigan, James of Worcester, 
Massachusetts, Stephen and Vincent, both of Gloucester, 
Massachusetts and Matt of Pembroke, New Hampshire, 
and also by three grand-nephews and one grand-niece. 



In June 1993 Thomas Wendt received a promotion at St. 
Mary's University, San Antonio, Texas to the post of 
Director of Student and Employee Support Services. He is 
responsible for campus-wide alcohol and drug education. 
He administers services for students with disabilities and 
directs the campus mediation center, the employee 
assistance program and the peer education program. 

Tom Wendt received his bachelor's degree at the 
Suffolk Campus of St. Joseph's College in 1988, and 
delivered the keynote address, "The Value of Our 
Education" at the Baccalaureate Prayer Service. Since then 
he has had a busy and productive career in student 
personnel administration, dealing with the disturbing 
problems that beset young people today. 

On graduation from SJC he took a full-time position 
with Youth Focus, a non-profit Catholic youth ministry 
organization serving thousands of Long Island teens. Tom 
had worked part-time for the organization during his 
undergraduate years. As Director of Programs and Services 
he supervised undergraduate volunteers, designed and 
implemented the first Inter-Campus Peer Education 
Network and presented multi-media productions on teen- 
related issues. 

After two years Tom decided to move to the college 
setting. "My own years at St. Joe's had been so rewarding, 
he says, "that I wanted to help other students grow from 
their undergraduate experience." He enrolled at Columbia 
University for a Master's Degree in Student Personnel 
Administration. Serving as Greek Advisor he facilitated 
the resolution of disputes in the Panhellenic Council, 
advised 25 fraternities and sororities and coordinated 
workshops on alcohol abuse, hazing, sexual violence and 
gender communications. He responded to emergency and 
crisis situations and adjudicated Greek Discipline cases 
with the Greek Judicial board. 

In 1991, having received his Master's degree, Tom went 
to St. Mary's University in San Antonio Texas, as 
Assistant Director of Residence Life and Greek Advisor. 
He managed a residence hall of 170 residents, and in one 
year turned the most problematic hall into the least 
problematic. He also oversaw the management of six other 
residence halls, supervised four Graduate Hall directors 
and 25 resident assistants and chaired training programs 
for directors. He presented programs to staff, faculty and 

Thomas Wendi '88 

Students on student development theory, and to all new 
students on issues of sexual violence, alcohol and 
communication. Meanwhile he continued to sharpen his 
skills, taking training courses for certification in Mediation 
and in Substance Abuse Screening. 

Tom Wendt's competence was recognized by his 
supervisor at St. Mary's who nominated him, in 1992, for 
an award granted by the American College Personnel 
Association to an outstanding new professional in the field 
- one of seven in the entire nation. In 1993 he won first 
place at the annual New Professionals Case Study 
Competition of the Southwest Association of College and 
University Housing Officers. 

He has made significant and award-winning 
presentations at professional conferences. Among topics he 
has dealt with are "Living with AIDS," "Gender Swap-Put 
Yourself in My Shoes," "Straight Talk About Gay Issues" 
and "Careers in Student Affairs." At the 1992 conference 
of the National Forum on Substance Abuse in Higher 
Education, sponsored by the U.S. Department of 
Education, he spoke on "Preventive Programs and 
Minority Students: a Mexican-American Perspective." 
Tom's bi-lingual (Spanish-English) ability gives him a 
special competence in this field. 

Tom will address the 1994 Annual Conference of the 
National Association of Student Personnel Administrators 
on "Finding the Right Job in Student Affairs," and on "Job 
One - What They Didn't Teach You in Graduate School." 
At the 1994 San Antonio Residence Assistants Conference 
he is to give the Keynote address: "To a Different Drum - 
Commitment and Service." 

At present Tom is working on a text book entitled 
Ethical Issues in Higher Education. He contributes a 
monthly column, "On Campus," to the San Antonio 
Handicapable Gazette. He looks forward, in a few years to 
working toward a doctorate in higher education 
administration, with the long term plan of teaching in 
graduate programs in the field of higher education. 

Tom's hobby is acting. Back in 1988 Tom Wendt made 
his stage debut at the Clare Rose Playhouse, as Stanley in 
Neil Simon's Brighton Beach Moments. He has casually 
pursued both volunteer and professional acting 
engagements and is currently a member of a professional 
San Antonio acting troupe called Illegitimate Theater.

A Career 


Ban, Thomas and Helen Minieri Slacy 

When Helen Minieri Stacy graduated from St. Joseph's 
in 1980 with a bachelor's degree in Child Study, she never 
could have predicted where her career track would take 
her. "I look back and just shake my head," she says. Yet 
her position as financial adviser is not entirely different 
from her former job as a pre-school and grade school 
teacher. Instead of teaching children ABC's, she advises 
women on the 1-2-3's of financial planning - an issue she 
feels many women need to address. 

"Whether a woman is single or married, she must learn 
sooner or later how to manage her finances," explains 
Stacy. "Some women say that they don't earn or haven't 
enough money to think about financial planning. It is true 
that they earn less than their male counterparts, but you 
would be surprised how much you can accomplish with 20 
dollars a week." 

A turn of events forced Stacy to realize she needed a 
better paying job herself, so she moved from the Brooklyn 
classrooms to the Wall Street corridors. Driven by 
necessity and armed with teaching experience and naivete, 
she sought jobs at all the large financial houses. She laughs 
at the recollection. "I went to all these big companies, 
thinking they would want Helen Minieri with no 
experience. I must have received dozens of rejections." 
Finally, she was hired as a sales assistant by a small 
Boston firm, Mosely Securities. That was in 1985. Exactly 
one year later, she was entered into the trainee program for 
financial advisement. In 1988. Mosely was taken over by 
Thomson MacKinnon. While Stacy climbed the corporate 
ladder. Prudential Securities took over. Today, she is the 
Vice-President of Investments and was recently appointed 
as assistant manager of the Southampton branch. 

More than a career, she also met her husband, Bart 
Stacy, at Mosely. They married in March 1990 and 
Thomas Richard was born in December of the same year. 
After his birth, Stacy took two months of maternity leave, 
but never lost contact with her job, thanks to a computer, a 

fax machine and modem at home. Likewise, when she 
returned to her office full time, she equipped it with home 
necessities, such as a playpen, for the two days a week she 
brought Thomas, with his food, bottles, toys and clothes. "I 
did that for a year while 1 lived in Brooklyn, then I 
transferred to Southampton. Looking back, I wonder how I 

Now on the other end of Long Island. Stacy has become 
of member of East End Women Networking. Inc., and 
writes a column in their monthly publication. She has also 
become a licensed representative of the National Center for 
Women and Retirement Research. There are 21 of these 
groups nationwide and Stacy competed with four other 
women for the position. She holds financial seminars for 
women, which fulfills her desire to teach and to help them. 
She also calls in a radio show on WBAZ called Market 
Report, both mornings and evenings daily. 

"I want to help women and educate them. While it is 
hard for a woman to break into a man's industry," she 
admits, "I wouldn't be where I am today if it weren't for a 
few men." She credits her husband, Bart -no longer a 
broker, but a gourmet chef - for his tremendous support 
and help in allowing her to pursue her career. "I do work 
hard, but Bart is so supportive. He watches Thomas during 
the day, and brings him to the office so we can have lunch 
together a few times a week. He frees me from so many 

Other people who intluenced Stacy's life include her 
parents, Cecilia and Richard Minieri, whose steady 
guidance and inspiration helped her at crucial crossroads. 
Her cousin. Rosalie Tutino '59, Vice President of 
Development and College Relations, also assisted Stacy's 
career when she convinced her to attend St. Joseph's in 
order to earn a teaching degree. "Who knows where I'd be 
without these special people in my life?" 

Today, Stacy offers her own special guidance to those 
who need it.

To Spread 

Love and Laughter 

In the spring of 1974 I graduated from St. Joseph's College. 
I was engaged to marry that summer and my plans for the 
future included teaching and motherhood. Never in my wildest 
dreams did I expect to be a clown. Yet, during the past fifteen 
years, I have entertained at countless birthday parties, 
performed at company picnics and grand openings, visited 
hospitals, and marched in parades. 

How did a (then) young mother and former elementary 
school teacher become a clown? The process began in 1979 
when my husband, Don, decided to own his own business and 
we opened an ice cream store in East Meadow, Long Island. 
We planned to host children's birthday parities and I was sure 
that with my Child Study background, I could entertain 
children easily. The franchise suggested magic shows, so I 
visited a few magic shops asking for suggestions on tricks for 
children and invested in many tricks and magic books. After 
months of practice and developing routines, I began performing 
at children's parties at our store. 

I auditioned and was accepted as a member of the Long 
Island Mystics, the local chapter of the Society of American 
Magicians. At their monthly meetings I watched and learned 
from performers more skilled and experienced than I, and 
occasionally had the opportunity to perform for the group. 

After several years, Don and I decided to leave the ice cream 
business. He returned to engineering and I returned to being a 
full-time mother to three boys. However, after receiving several 
requests for magic shows, I decided to continue performing and 
made myself more marketable by becoming a magic clown. 
Thus "Tootie the Clown" was bom. 

In 1985, we made a job-related move to Houston, Texas. 
One of the first things I did was join ihe Cheerful Clown Alley, 
the local chapter of COAI - Clowns ot America International. I 


also became a member of TCA, the Texas Clown Association. 
In New York I had very little contact with other clowns, but in 
Houston I attended monthly alley meetings and had the 
opportunity to learn from others. I attended the alley's annual 
clown school and improved my makeup and wardrobe. I 
participated in a six week class given by a former Ringling 
Brothers clown and greatly improved my physical comedy, 
learning some balancing and juggling tricks. In late 1985 I 
attended the Texas Clown Association Convention and placed 
in the Top Ten for Auguste Makeup and Wardrobe 
competition. There are three basic clown types: Whiteface, 
Auguste, and Tramp. Augustes, like Tootie, have flesh-colored 
base makeup with patches of white around their eyes and 

In 1986, 1 spent a week at the University of Wisconsin at La 
Crosse, at the Laughmakers' Conference. I took classes in 
juggling, ventriloquism, balloon animals, magic, and other 
clown skills. The instructors were former circus clowns and 
other seasoned children's performers. Later that year I returned 
to the TCA convention and received a first place trophy for 
Auguste Makeup and Wardrobe. 

I help to keep my clown character and skills developing by 
attending conventions, and workshops and by visiting 
performers, and by staying active in the Cheerful Clown Alley. 
I perform at birthday parities on weekends and do a volunteer 
show each year for the kindergarteners and first graders at our 
local elementary school. I also speak annually at the fifth 
grade's Career Day. Eventually I hope to expand my business 
by performing at preschools and daycare centers. 

Clowning is an incredibly satisfying field. Whether 
volunteering at a hospital or performing at a children's party, it 
is a great opportunity to spread love and laughter.

World Youth Day 

Marie Mackey '84 (left) and youlhfid journalists 

"The experience of a lifetime," Marie Mackay '84 says of the 
encounter with Pope John Paul II that she and some of her 
students had at World Youth Day in Denver, Colorado. 

Marie teaches in the Department of Religious Education at 
St. Francis Preparatory School in Fresh Meadows. She is also 
advisor of the student newspaper, The Seraph. The paper has 
won many awards - this year alone nine of the Tablet press 
awards, a first place from the American Scholastic Press 
Association and an award from the Columbia University Press 

In the spring of 1992, Marie attended a Taize gathering in 
Dayton, Ohio. There she learned that the next Worid Youth Day 
would be held in Denver, Colorado, in 1993. She contacted 
Sister Mary Ann Walsh, RSM, Director of Communications for 
World Youth Day and expressed her interest, as a religion 
teacher and advisor of the school newspaper, in having her 
students take part in a unique role as press participants. Sister 
was not not only receptive but "definitely excited about the 
possibility." Copies of the previous issues of The Seraph and a 
list of recent honors and awards were sent to Sister Mary Ann 
and she was put on the mailing list for future issues. 

The prospect of being recognized as accredited journalists 
thrilled the thirteen reporters and photographers of The Seraph 
staff, the only high school journalists given this status. They 
were to attend the same press briefings and cover the same 
photo opportunities as professionals. Before they left for Denver 
they became the focus of much media attention here. They were 
interviewed on programs of the major TV networks, ABC, NBC 
and CBS, and on several radio stations. The Daily News, 
Newsday and the Brooklyn Tablet printed articles. While they 
were in Denver, articles and interviews appeared in the Denver 
Post, The Washington Post, the Daily News and other 

On arrival in Denver the Seraph group was assigned to stay 
at the Radisson Hotel, the designated lodging place for members 
of the media. One of the group was included in a special Secret 
Service Rotating Photography Pool for the Archdiocesan 

welcome, an event to be covered by only a dozen local Denver 
photographers, out of more than 3,000 journalists covering 
Worid Youth Day. This opportunity meant that James Dooley 
was escorted within a few feet of the Pope to take photographs. 
The prep students were also within a few feet of the Holy Father 
during the Papal Mass at Cherry Creek Park. Besides covering 
their assignments, they attended as many of the events of World 
Youth Day as they could reach. 

Marie has been informed that The Seraph World Youth Day 
Edition will become part of the official files of the event. She 
was also asked to send copies to Vatican officials. The World 
Youth Day issue of The Seraph was distributed to the 250 
bishops gathered for a meeting in Washington, DC, this 
November. The Seraph has received complimentary letters from 
all over the country and the world, from people who saw the 
young journalists on television. 

Marie credits her organizational ability to the opportunities 
and experi-ences offered to her by St. Joseph's. "Coming to a 
small liberal arts college gave me the opportunity to get 
involved in a number of things. I made contact with key people 
who have been mentors to me, among them Sister Margaret 
Buckley, Sherrie Van Amam and Rosalie Tutino." 

Marie was the recipient of a full four year Medaille 
Scholarship. As an undergraduate, she held a number of offices. 
In her senior year she was president of the Undergraduate 
Association. "My involvement in student government gave me 
the opportunity to create and implement new programs." As a 
student assistant to Rosalie Tutino and Sherrie Van Amam, she 
gained practical experience in producing the 245/155 
Newsletter and in putting together the dinner dance. "All of 
these things, combined with a love of teaching fueled by the 
dedication and direction of Sister Margaret Buckley, have 
served me well." 

Marie received a Master of Science degree in Education 
from Queens college in 1988, and an MA in Theology at 
Immaculate Conception Seminary in 1991. She taught English

Mary Camper McCinnis '25 

Mary Camper McGinnis of the class of 1925, former 
principal of New Dorp and of Bay Ridge High Schools, died 
on July 2, 1993, after a long illness. Mary began her forty- 
seven year career with the New York City Board of Education 
at Abraham Lincoln High School, as a teacher of history and a 
grade advisor. Connie Giampietro Annucci '39, a student there 
in the early thirties sent her remembrances of Mary. "Though 
she never taught me, I became one of the group of students 
whom she took under her wing, along with Carmela Napoli, 
Frances Caetta, Jerome Loizzo, Claudia Pollicano, Agatina 
Carbonaro, Norma Strauss, and many others before and after 
us. Her zeal was unsurpassed. She urged us to continue our 
education and guided us to Catholic colleges. Thus I found 
myself at St. Joseph's. I share the love which Mary had for the 
college and consequently my daughters, Mary Anne and 
Geraldine, are also St. Joe's alumnae." 

In 1939, Mary transferred to Bay Ridge High School where 
she chaired the Social Studies Department and later served as 
an administrator. 

In 1944, Mary McGinnis was appointed principal of New 
Dorp High School in Staten Island. During her nineteen years 
there, many St. Joseph's alumnae began teaching careers under 
her supervision. On hearing of her death Ruth Hall Carey '52 
recalled, "I was a teacher who worked under her tutelage at 
New Dorp for five and half years. Her integrity and 
unselfishness in devoting her life to the welfare of the pupils 
was truly an inspiration. No effort or time was ever spared by 
her to give students more opportunities to grow, whether in her 
unique assembly programs or in her applications for students to 
get scholarships for higher education. She trained less 
academically gifted students for leadership roles. As a 
newcomer, through her encouragement, I learned how to be an 
effective teacher. She gave us young teachers what we needed 
most - confidence in our abilities and support for our growth. 
Some other New Dorp teachers I remember from St. Joseph's 
were Doris Jacklitsch '56, Mary Schlesser Regan '54, Nettie 
Rementeria McKenna '54, Joanne Bradley Milza '58 and Mary 
Bennett '50." 


Mary Camper McGinnis 

During the many years of service to New York City schools, 
Mary McGinnis was known as one who did more than educate 
children. She prepared them for the real world and touched 
them in ways they would never forget. Staten Island Borough 
President. Guy V. Molinari, recalled her as a strong woman. 
During the mid-forties he was called into her office and 
questioned about his future. "Without her influence I might 
never have attended college," he said. 

James F. Regan, former Staten Island representative to the 
New York City Board of Education, and later its President, was 
a teacher at New Dorp for 18 years. "She was a truly noble 
woman in her profession," he said. "She was responsible for 
bringing many young people into the teaching field and she 
trained them exceptionally well." Mary McGinnis was known 
for praising the individual accomplishment of each student and 
for encouraging students to serve their school and community. 

In 1963, Mary McGinnis returned to Bay Ridge High 
School as principal. Her decision to retire in 1973, four years 
in advance of the time she would reach mandatory retirement, 
was based "not on any cynicism on my part in regard to the 
profession which has been my life work, but on various 
considerations of a personal nature." 

Mary McGinnis was a member of the Catholic Historical 
Society, of Delta Epsilon Sigma, and the National Catholic 
Honor Society. A loyal and active alumna, she will be 
remembered as the chairman and driving force of the 
Alumnae's first Library Fund Drive of 1928-29, as president of 
the Alumnae Association 1931-33, and as Commencement 
Speaker in 1944. Through the years Mary attended nearly all 
alumnae functions, keeping in touch with many graduates 
whose careers she followed. 

Mary Camper McGinnis was truly one of those of whom it 
is written: 

They that are learned shall shine 
as the brightness of the firmament: 
they that instruct many to justice, 
as stars for alt eternity.

1993 Day at Belmont 

With echoes from Damon Runyon and the Marx Brothers 
in our head, my niece, Clare Murphy'65, and I spent a day at 
the races, specifically, Saturday October 2nd, with a few 
dozen other SJC alums at Belmont. 

What a great way to greet October! The track was bright 
and clean, embellished with yellow, russet, gold and white 
chrysanthemums. The turf was emerald green and in the center 
pond a snowy egret stayed for all nine races. The sky was 
clear, cloudless and blue and the horses glorious, sleek and 
anxious to show their stuff. 

Do you know an exacta from a quintilla? Can you box your 
bets to parlay them? No matter. What you do is pick the horse 
with the most appealing name or the horse bearing a number 
that grabs you and then bet - win, place or show. Remember 
long shots are for suckers but, what the heck, for $2 you can 
try one. 

This SJC day at Belmont is certainly an enjoyable autumn 
event. Lunch is served in the fourth floor clubhouse, where 
you have an excellent view of the entire track. There were 
several other organizations there on October 2nd and in the 
program each group had a race dedicated to them. 

Clare and I took off from the clubhouse for a couple of 
races. We checked out the paddock, watched the horses parade 
and searched the jockeys' faces for revelations. The best place 
to watch the race itself, the most exciting, is from the ground- 
level grandstand. To see the horses coming toward you and to 
be so close when they cross the finish line is a thrill. 

Did we win? Well, yes and no. I cashed in quite a few 
winning tickets - no big bucks, but a win is a win. I did fall for 
a couple of long shots (with intriguing names), sure losers and 
they were. I came close in the daily double but that was a ticket 
to tear up too. 

But basically it was a winner of a day, with pleasant people, 
a tasty lunch and nine little adventures. Watch for the 
announcement in the Alumnagram next year. This is a fund 
raiser for the Alumni Association because there are no mailing 
costs and it is a wonderful way to visit with some old friends 
and to celebrate autumn.

Letter to the Editor 

Dear Mrs. Farrell. 

I read with great surprise and disagreement the 
feature article entitled "Chiropractor". As a physician I 
am well aware of the differences between medical 
doctors and chiropractic doctors, not the similarities. To 
say the chiropractors and physicians take the same 
course work is misleading, as this is course work given 
in two completely different academic settings. In 
addition, how the material is applied during the third 
and fourth years of medical schools is unique to medical 
school. Even within the medical profession where we all 
share the same initial course work there is great 
diversity. By the time we have finished our residency, 
comparison of course work in the first tMO years of 
schooling becomes irrelevant. 

I have the utmost respect for chiropractors who 
practice chiropractic medicine but they are not 
physicians and physicians are not chiropractors. I 
believe the presentation in the Alumnagram was a 
misleading and irrelevant comparison betiveen nvo veiy 
different professions.

World Youth Day 

continued from page 11 

at Bishop Kearney High School before moving to St. Francis in 

1989 to teach in the Religious Education Department. 

In 1986 Marie was honored with a TEACH (Teachers 
Energizing a Creative High School) award, given by the Office 
of Catholic Education, for a sixty-minute television news 
program produced by her students. Other honors include 
recognition by Mayor Koch for her volunteer work with the 
poor mentally retarded and disabled children, the Brooklyn Hall 
of Fame award and the St. Joseph the Worker award. 

Her achievement at World Youth Day brought Marie many 
job offers but she loves being a teacher at St. Francis. She has 
plans to start a journalism program there and would welcome 
suggestions from alumni. Phone her at St. Francis-7 18-492-88 10. 

Marie has little time for her hobbies: photography, cooking, 
and journalism. Her mother, still working, hopes to retire in a 
few years. Her brother Jimmy and his wife, Veronica, are 
expecting their first child which will make Marie a first-time 
aUnt. Her sister is with the U.S. Army in Virginia.

To Spread Love and Laughter 
continued from page 10 

When I'm not clowning around, I volunteer at my children's 
elementary school and junior and senior high schools. My son 
David is 1 1, Michael is 13 and Don is 16. 1 also work part-time 
as a registrar/greeter at Jazzercise, where I've been enjoying 
aerobic dance classes for six years. One of my other passions in 
life is recycling and I am a co-leader of the recycling team at 
our church. 

Living so far away from New York, I am never able to 
attend the Spring Luncheon and visit with former classmates. 
When we do fly home, it is usually for Christmas or during 
summer vacation. If any alums pass through the Houston areas, 
please give me a call at 713-550-6345. I would truly enjoy the 
opportunity to visit with former classmates from St. Joseph's.

Teresa Dolan Janton, Regina Munz Meyer, Mary St. John 
Murphy and Alice McGrane Feeley attended the delightful tea and 
reception given for the Golden Graduates Society at the College. We 
thoroughly enjoyed a very pleasant afternoon greeting old friends and 
catching up on news. Mildred Hayes Oonohue and Vincent are 
expecting three new great grandchildren, bringing their total to 
twelve. Mildred's recent birthday at the Garden City Hotel, brought 
forty-five guests. Rita Fearon Bryan's birthday was celebrated in 
North Palm Beach were ninety nine guests attended, mostly family. 
Father Paul said the Mass which preceded the festivities. 
Unfortunately, Rita had a fall the next day and broke her hip. She has 
made a remarkable recovery and is once again driving her car and 
getting out each day. Rita's oldest son, Jim, lost his son who was 
living on Orcas Island off the coast of Washington. He was buried 
from North Palm Beach and Father Paul flew down to say the Mass. 
Father Paul is now Director of St. John Newman's Shrine in 
Philadelphia. Mary St. John Murphy, busy as usual with all her 
good works and meetings, is planning a vacation to visit a very dear 
niece in Maryland. Teresa Dolan Janton is very happy in her new 
home. Grandchildren and their young families are nearby so she does 
not lack company. A delightful young mother, Barbara Owens, drove 
her to the Golden Reception and we are all glad that she is nearby and 
could join us. Regina Munz Meyer is well and is still an avid Bridge 
player. There are two new engagements in her family so she is 
looking forward to the weddings. Angela Donaldson sends her best 
wishes to all and a warm "thank you" for cards, notes and phone calls. 
This year will be an Anniversary Year for us-our 70th. Let's celebrate 
together at the Spring Luncheon in Garden City on April 16th. Mark 
your calendar nowi

On July second, Mary Camper McGinnis died after a long illness. 
Mary was a most loyal alumna. The last alumni function she attended 
was the 75th anniversary of St. Joseph's College. All through her 
illness she was eager for news of the college, always reading 
programs and such about college events. Mary was the first SJC 
alumna to become a high school principal. During her active years as 
Assistant Principal of Abraham Lincoln High School, and as principal 
of New Dorp High School and Bay Ridge High School, she guided 
many young women to St. Joseph's College. We will hold Mary in 
loving memory. The party given by Sister George for the Golden 
Graduates was a most enjoyable affair. Grace O'Brien Martin had 
the pleasure of driving in from New Jersey with Margaret Normile 
McLoughlin '27. Meeting old friends and exchanging news makes 
for a pleasant afternoon. Cecilia McLoughlin sent a gracious note 
saying how sorry she was to learn of the recent death of our 
classmates, Agnes Corry Murtaugh, Marion Aubert Oak and 
Mary McGinnis. Let us keep them in our prayers.

On September 26th, we had a wonderful reunion at the beautiful party 
that Sister George gave for the Golden Graduates. Grace O'Brien 
Martin and Margaret Normile McLoughlin missed the reception 
part of the day. President Clinton held them up on the East River Drive 
for over an hour. Upon their eventual arrival, they were royally 
received by Sister Elizabeth Hill. They then loined their "fellow upper- 
classmen", Teresa Dolan Janton, Mary St. John Murphy, Alice 
McGrane Feeley, Regina Munz Meyer, Bernadette Dolan and 
Jeannette Farrell Amery. Sister John Baptist was also with 
them. Sister George inducted the Class of 1943 with pins and 
certificates and spoke about the college. We then heard from an 
undergraduate whose delightful talk made us all glad we belong to 
,S.J.C. We sang the Alma Mater and joined in the chorus of some old 
memory songs from the earlier decades of the century. (We know all 

the words, and wish you all could have been there.) In June Elva 
Rockefeller Ryan attended the graduation of her grandson from 
Fordham. Years ago, Elva received her Masters in Philosophy on that 
campus. Elva's California children paid her a visit in June and spent 
the week visiting all the Eastern cousins. Alice Gallagher writes that 
"as a Golden Grad" she sends thanks for her memories of SJC. She is 
proud to see some SJC graduates serving in her Parish, St. Anne's, 
where she prepared so many First Communion classes. She is very 
active now in Catholic Daughters of America. Rose Stuart Doran 
visited her daughter in Wayne, PA last June, then went on to son 
Tom's in Rockville Center where she celebrated her July 4th birthday. 
She then visited her granddaughter and great grandchildren in 
Marblehead. The following day, she had a fall, and broke her arm and 
injured her back. Granddaughter, Teresa was a "great nurse and the 
children a delight." She returned to Wayne in September and is still on 
the mend. She calls it a "crazy summer" but adds not a word of 
complainti What a wonderful spirit! We heard from Miriam Cleary 
McNeill who sends greetings. My daughter. Sister Jean 
McLoughlin, SSND, has been elected to the Provincial Team of the 
Northeast Area and now resides in the Mother House in Wilton, CT. 
Many blessings!

Agnes Kelly Bryan reported the happy event of her 60th wedding 
anniversary last year. Her son, Christopher, and family are living in 
Maine where they have become ski enthusiasts. Son, Daniel, is 
Superintendent of Schools on Long Island. In June, the Bryan family 
had a reunion at Palm Beach Gardens in Florida to celebrate the 90th 
birthday of Rita Fearon Bryan '24 and John and Agnes attended. 
John and Agnes vacationed at Rye Beach, New Hampshire last 
summer, staying at the Franciscan Retreat House, where they met- 
guess!-another alumna, Anna Marie Arcoleo '74. Dorothy 
Thompson Rossini feels more independent since she acquired a 
motorized wheel chair. Her children keep in touch with her. Fred is a 
provost at George Mason University in Fairfax, VA. Her oldest son is 
studying for a doctorate at Harvard and second son, for his doctorate 
at Duke University. Daughter, Laura, has left New York to join a ballet 
company in Europe. Emma Bergen, although she loves New York, its 
weather, and all it has to offer, feels she made the right decision to 
remain in Florida. Helen Callahan Brink finds her grandchildren and 
great-grandchildren a great joy. On the arrival of her granddaughter 
Carolyn's second child in November, Helen became a great 
grandmother for the second time. Eugenia Cormier Ahders' 
daughter, Catherine Ahders Schmitt '56, who has been living for 
many years in England, appeared in a photo on page 17 in Summer 
Alumnagram with Margaret Dwyer Minson '70, our new Director of 
Alumni Relations. Also in the photo is Christine Strianese Coulton 
'79 and her young son. Margaret, who was on a sojourn to London, 
arranged this meeting. Marie Kelly Smith became a great 
grandmother three times last yeari Dorothy Hand is active still in 
Columbiettes, Fatima Club, Retired Teachers and Salvation Army. This 
summer at the Annual Fire Department Bar-B-Q, of which she is a 
volunteer, about 3,000 people were served. Dorothy still drives and 
meets friends at a local diner for breakfast and a chat. Mary Kelly 
Hoermann suffered a leg injury in an escalator accident but is 
recovering now at home. Mary Murray Kelly's son Frank reports 
that his mother can use the phone from 9 AM to 9 PM. She is in 
excellent spirits and would like to hear from classmates. Elinor 
Woods Paul is a lector in her church. Her daughter, Bernadette Paul 
Gardella '68 is nearby. Elinor says she just doesn't work as fast as she 
used to. Mary Keller LaM/ler no longer drives, has acquired an 
efficient housekeeper, and enjoys life and her family. Her son, John, 
recently became Chairman of the Board of Manhattan College. Her 
daughter, Mary, a nurse, was keynote speaker at a Symposium on 
Diabetes at Rockland County Community College. Mary Hennessy 
Riley attended the second Golden Graduate Reception at the college 
this fall and was happy to see friends she hadn't seen in years. 
Jeannette Farrell Amery, recovered from her hospital stay, was 
there, too. For her, summer without Cedar Grove was not as 
impossible as expected, (if you recall Jeannette's summer place on 
Staten Island was totally ruined in last year's storm. I A cool breeze 


blew through the apartment, sometimes from Prospect Park and 
sometimes from New York Bay. The air conditioner was not needed. 
In early October, Jeannette was returning from a luncheon of the 
Nursing Sisters Auxiliary when the local high school track team 
thundered behind her, knocking her down head first, practically in 
front of a Medical Center, In no time a nurse, doctor and three 
policemen had carried her into the center, kept her an hour and 
decided by some miracle she had no broken bones, concussion etc. 
The police escorted her home. For three weeks she had a swollen, 
black face, one closed eye, a bruised and swollen left knee and ankle 
but, thank God, no broken bones or destroyed eye. The athletic 
director visited next day with a a dozen American Beauties and offer 
to help, which fortunately was not needed. The Amery children and 
grandchildren are all well, enjoying life. Three have finished college 
and are gainfully employed. Elizabeth left for Oxford in October and 
Margaret is happy in high school. We are hoping to hear from those 
whose names do not appear in this column. . .

No news from the class of 1929-but we want to remind you that 1994 
is a big year for us. It marks our 65th Anniversary of graduation 
from St. Joseph's College! Let's celebrate together at the Spring 
Luncheon in Garden City, to be held on April 16th. Mark your calendar 
and make it a date!

for the Golden Graduates this fall. It was a lovely party with good 
company, wonderful refreshments and encouraging reports on the 
college's progress. We wish you all could have been there!

It is with sorrow that we write of the death of Irene Parker Parks on 
November 30. She attended the Golden Graduates Reception \n 
September, driving all the way in from Halesite, Long Island. Please 
remember her and her loved ones in your prayers Last fall we had to 
cancel our Mass for deceased members because Helen Coughlan 
VUorthley was having eye surgery and Clare Smith, a double 
bypass. Both are domg well. On the appointed day for our Mass, 
Father Keith Fennessy celebrated Mass at the chapel of the Terence 
Cardinal Cooke Health Center in Manhattan and I was the lector. He 
told those attending about our class and there were expressions of 
wonder and congratulations on our loyalty through the years. Father 
John Worthley still works with Mother Teresa's new mission in China, 
and says that Mother is stronger and very active again. In anticipation 
of our September meeting, I heard from Kathlyn Ansbro Wurts, 
Frances Dieckert Rebele, Madeline Kendall Friel (now in 
Gainsville, FLI and Margaret Leahy Hinchey, by mail, and by 
telephone from Margaret Kenny who had surgery but is now 
recovering. I talked with Mary Whelan Phelan, Mary White 
Kearney, Katharine Kelly Carlin, Christine Barton, Edna 
Dawkins McDonald and Irene Parker Parks, all coping with life in 
the "eighties" and nineties. Gertrude Unser told of her trip to 
Toronto and Marie Furey Boyce wrote of a big family reunion on 
Long Island. In October I attended a retreat at Graymoor and at lunch 
found myself next to the only other St. Joseph's alumna there, Peggy 
Bolton Barsin '30, sister of Mary Bolton McDonald '39! If you 
would like to reach out to any of our classmates, please write or 
phone me for addre .s and phone numbers.

Sister James Cecilia Cullen wrote of her regrets at being unable to 
attend the "Golden Oldies" reception. She was thrilled to receive the 
Pin and the Charter Member Scroll. She wrote of her Silver Jubilee 
celebration: "Everyone was filled with such enthusiasm at meeting 
one another that no one saw evidence of passing years until 
Monsignor Dillon began his talk of welcome with 'Well, now that you 
have been graduates for twenty-five years. . . All the gay flowers on 
our hats started to droop and lines formed on everyone's faces . . ." 
Sister was looking forward to the alumni meeting in Patchogue in 
September. Mary E. O'Connor also wrote with thanks for scroll and 
pin which she will war in her lapel. She reminds us that 1994 will be 
our sixtieth anniversary! S. Mary Domitilla Dirig RSB received her 
Golden Graduate certificate and pin. She did not go east for the two 
receptions but was here for their 50th anniversary. S. Mary is retired 
and in their Health Care Center. Appreciates receiving Alumnagram 
and death notices of classmates. She had a call from Cathrine 
Loftus '35 who was concerned about the flood (Sister lives in St. 
Louis, MO). The convent is on high ground. On July 18 the river Des 
Pereshas began to flow over the Morganford bridge, ten or twelve 
blocks down the hill. Angela Rosa wrote of a wonderful pilgrimage 
to Lourdes, Fatima and Rome. The BIG NEWS for our class is that 1994 
marks our SIXTIETH anniversary. Let's celebrate together at the 
Spring Luncheon in Garden City on April 16th. Mark your calendar, 
call a classmate, and join us there.

Helen E. Dermody, the only doctor (she received her PhD from 
Fordham) in our class, had retired from her position as the Dean of the 
school of Social Studies, Fordham. For her it means more time to visit 
with her friends both "old" and new. At the fall luncheon at the Hotel 
Westbury in Manhattan Edna Brennan Maloney and Anne Seitz 
Smith were the only ones from '35 present. Mary Elizabeth who had 
planned to be there was unable to attend, but they were joined by 
Rose Marie O'Reilly '36 and others. Anne was disappointed that 
Margaret Ferry Healy '31 did not show up. At the cocktail hour, Ann 
and Edna strolled around to visit with other friends from various 
classes and talked with S. Alice Francis, S. George Aquin and S. 
Mary Florence. Edna was in touch with Cele Finn Fahy who moved 
to Ginger Cove, Annapolis, MD. At a Cathedral Club Communion 
Breakfast, Anne learned that Grace Flannery Morris' daughter, Beth 
is a permanent sub in NYC school system. Son Gerry and Mary 
announced the arrival of another daughter, Erin Leigh. They are going 
to swap homes with Grace who will move into their apartment on 
Shore Road, and they will move into Grace's home. Florence 
Carberry's son, Stephen, has a new daughter, Caitlin. Her son, John 
was playing golf in Ireland and on his return flew off again to 
Bermuda with his son. Jay. Son Frank, who lives in Boston is involved 
with the insurance on the new tunnel connecting the City of Boston 
with the Airport. It will be named after Ted Williams, a favorite ball 
player of Anne's who remembers seeing him play in the Boston 
Baseball Park. Anne met Catherine Loftus who was en route to meet 
three friends from Flatbush. They planned to eat lunch in Bay Ridge. 
Marion Musante enjoyed a change of scene when she visited a niece 
in a Chicago suburb. She sees Wilma Riepe on occasion. Marion was 
in a party for four who attended the fund-raising Concert of Operatic 
Music at Huntington Seminary. It was followed by a sumptuous 
dinner. At the request of the Polish Government, Bernadette 
Maroney Metzlar's son, John, spent a week at the Warsaw Hotel. As 
Superintendent of Arlington Cemetery, he had buried Paderewski and 
then as planned had him returned to Poland. Jack gave a speech at an 
Art Symposium. It surprised him that the people he met there all 
spoke at least three languages. On his return home he took a cab 
down town, crossed over into Germany and flew home from there. 
Jack has three boys, one a college graduate and the other two in high 

school. Elvie Trimborn Mullally received her Golden Graduate pin 
and certificate but she "hadn't a clue" about it. At the time her 
husband was ill and she probably overlooked her mail about the 
meeting. Elvie doesn't travel any more so couldn't come this year. She 
does get around town, however, still plays the organ at 12 Noon Mass 
on Sunday and at the local Convalescence Pavilion plays for the 
Patients' Sing-a-long. And she still writes her Chatterbox Column for 
the local newspaper, and attends various meetings. On August 4th, 
she and Joe celebrated their 53rd wedding anniversary. "Where did 
the time go?" she asks, and so do we. Betty Devlin Lockwood has 
sold her home in Florida and is now living in Massachusetts, near her 
son, Bill. It would be nice to hear from more of you. I do try to get in 
touch by phone or card . . .but please try to get in touch with me . . . 
Enjoy 1994!

When we heard from Claire Brennan Suchan, she was looking 
forward to a trip to Vermont in October to see the changing leaves. 
Mary Urquhart Toomey writes of her appreciation for the lovely pin 
and certificate of membership in the Golden Graduates Society. "What 
a lovely idea it is to remember us 'old timers' in such a thoughtful way. 
Thank you so much," she wrote. 

Dolores Pyne Dunleavy, 335 East 32nd Street, Brooklyn, NY 11226. 718- 


A heartfelt thanks to Sister George Aquin and Margaret Dwyer 

Minson for a most enjoyable Golden Graduate Day. Our Class was well 
represented with Margaret MacGillivray Seidei, Eileen Brennan, 
Edythe Bruce, Emily Billington Smisek, Margaret Laux O'Reilly, 
Kay Heffernan Steffany, Clare Ruane, and me, Margie Parker

It is with sorrow that we write of the death of Margot Schulte 
Kandah from cancer, on May 22nd, and of Dorothy Connor on May 
30th after a long illness. Please remember them in your prayers. Both 
were retired, Margot from the advertising field, and Dottie from the 
Telephone Company where she was a traffic engineer/supervisor. 
Margot is survived by her husband, Sabri, a New York City 
Immigration Judge. Nancy O'Brien Schueler and Mary Grace 
Calhoun Dunn attended Margot's vigil and funeral where Mary 
Grace eulogized Margot. "A coincidence," she says, "was that each 
was buried from a St. Joseph's church, . . Margot in Manhattan and 
Dorothy in Babylon." We pray also for Margaret Reddington 
Stadler'a husband, Ernest who died March 20th. Marygrace 
Calhoun Dunn's youngest daughter, Noel is finishing a second year 
in the Jesuit Volunteer Corps, assigned as Youth Minister in Camden, 
N.J. She and one of her housemates were in a "drive-by" shooting 
incident. Newspapers which followed the story, featured them and 
their housemates, all JVs in an excellent presentation of the Christian 
philosophy of service to the disadvantaged-by youth! Marygrace still 
writes a monthly newsletter, articles for a quarterly and a yearly 
report. "There always seems to be a deadline around the corner" she 
says. She is looking forward to coming east for our '96 celebration.

in Brooklyn-very different from 500 in our time. In the Arts and 
Sciences and Adult Division, we have had the largest entering classes 
in more than ten years. For the first time the adult division has 
expanded to four off-site campus sites on Staten Island, where we 
offer courses towards a BS degree in Community Health at Carmel 
Richmond Nursing Home, Eger Health Care Center, Elizabeth Connolly 
Center and Pax Christ! Hospice at St. Vincent's Medical Center. We 
now have more than 250 members of the police department, including 
5 captains, 14 lieutenants, and many sergeants, detectives and 
officers. These students typically pursue the BS in Management of 
Human Resources. The adult division has had six-week Saturday 
sessions for many years, but we are planning for Sunday classes 
starting in the fall of 1994.

During October Phonathon, I made some contacts and worked up a 
mini-reunion with Liz Hussey Jennings who urged me to call Pat

Catherine attends State University of Oneonta. Pat Balducci lacono 
is back teaching after some years working for the Board of Education

great success in real estate sales on Staten Island, but it should be no 
surprise that Pat is quite a salesperson. Son, Carl is in hospital

Touche an accounting firm, and though he works in Connecticut, he

knowing that their mothers had been schoolmates. It was months later 
that the connection was made. Sheila Whelan Conticello teaches in

The summer of 1993 was very eventful for Don and Torri Barnao 
Turilli. Their 13 year old son, Michael, spent three weeks in Russia 
with the People-to-People Student Ambassador Program. He travelled 
with a group of 30 junior high school students from Houston. They 
spent a week at a Russian youth camp visiting with Russian students. 
They toured Moscow and St. Petersburg as well as several smaller 
cities and had the opportunity of visiting with Russian teenagers at 
each stop. Some other highlights were the evenings at the Moscow 
Circus and the Russian Ballet. He especially enjoyed the day he spent 
in the home of a Russian family. The trip was an incredible learning 
experience. Michael and his brothers, Don 16, and David 11, then 
spent three weeks in New York visiting their parents' families and had 
a great time with their cousins while Don and Torri had a wonderful, 
quiet time in Houston, together. In August the Turilli family went to 
Cozumel, Mexico. They took an interesting excursion to Chichen-ltza 
and toured the Maya ruins. However, most of their time was spent in 
snorkeling and enjoymg fun in the sun - a great vacation! Jane 
Lawlor Courtien's daughter, Mary Clare, is in 2nd grade at the 
Academy of St. Joseph's, Brentwood. Jane's business, Courtien 
Communications, is doing well with some large clients such as Boston 
Edison, and Allied Signal. Jane requests prayers for her husband, who 
is ill. She has been in touch with Eileen Rossman Swanby, who 
lives in Oakdale, and would like to hear from other classmates-about a 
celebration of our 20th anniversary!! We will be especially honored at 
the Spring Luncheon which will be held on April 16th, 1994, at the 
Garden City Hotel. This is a great place for a reunion so mark your 
calendar, call some of your friends. . . NOW!

Ed Pillor wrote last summer about the year of "the great Iowa 
floods." Many neighboring farmers were unable to use 10% to 20% of 

their land during the growing season. The rivers swelled to such great 
heights that an entire truck was submerged in a river normally 8 feet 
deep. The Pillers have moved to a larger house in the area and the 
children are disappointed that the baseball seasons were cut in half 
due to the rain. Just in time to make it for this news column, was the

On His Way to Work 

Robert Crowley Jr. 

On Monday evening, January 24th, at a village board 
meeting of Bellport, Long Island, Robert Crowley Jr. was 
recognized for a terrific act of heroism. 

Enroute to his teaching job at Fairfield Elementary 
School in Massapequa, at 7 A.M. on December 20th, 
Robert saw the car in front of him, driven by Linda 
Sexton, go into a skid, crash through the fence 
surrounding Great Patchogue Lake and hit the chilly 
waters about 25 feet from shore. 

He could hardly believe what he saw. The Bronco 
slowly started to sink and Linda found the car's power 
windows inoperable because of electric short-out. 
Robert, who worked with life guards for two summers at 
Quoque Beach, heard her screaming and banging the 
windows. He whipped off his jacket and plunged into the 
lake. When he reached her, Linda, who had broken a 
window with a crowbar found in the back seat, was out of 
the car, floundering in the icy water. Robert quickly 
grabbed her and swam to safety. He then drove to her 
husband's business nearby where they called for help. 
Linda was treated for shock and exposure at Brookhaven 
Memorial Hospital and released. 

Robert returned home for a hot shower and change of 
clothes. When he arrived at Fairfield Elementary, he 
received a hero's welcome, particularly from his sixth 
grade students. Recounting the episode for them he said, 
"I didn't think about being a hero. I just jumped in and 
did it. I like to think someone would do the same for me."

Alumna Addresses 

At the Commencement Exercises of the Arts and Sciences Division on June 3rd, the Class 
of 1994 was addressed by one of our own alumnae. Sister Isolina Ferre, MSBT '59. You have 
seen her photo several times in the pages of Alumnagrams and have read of honors she has 
received. Here is a copy of the Honorary Degree of Doctor of Humane Letters which our Alma 
Mater bestowed on her at this happy event. Sister Isolina Ferre. MSBT '59 

Cfje Jlonorarp Begree of ©octor of Humane iLetters; 

Visiter jgolma fern. M.^MM. 

In honoring Sister Isolina Ferre, a member of the Missionary Society of the Most Blessed Trinity, 
St. Joseph's College is paying tribute to an outstanding alumna, a dedicated advocate for the poor and 
oppressed, a creative community leader - in brief, a woman whose life of service has been marked by 
compassion, vision, courage, and a passion for social justice. 

Before Sister Isolina earned her B.A. from St. Joseph's College, she had already spent a number 
of years working as a missionary among the coal miners of West Virginia. While studying at St. 
Joseph's, Sister was also assigned to the Doctor White Community Center in Brooklyn, and it was there 
that she found her personal mission - the prevention of juvenile delinquency through community-building 
and the development of leadership skills and self-confidence. 

After earning a Master's degree in Sociology from Fordham, Sister Isolina plunged into her life 
work with unwavering enthusiasm and energy. Both in Brooklyn and in her native Puerto Rico, Sister 
has founded comprehensive, community-based, multi-service youth programs. Originally named Youth 
and Community Alerted, the program has been renamed the Sister Isolina Ferre Center, in recognition of 
her dedication. There are now several Sister Isolina Ferre Centers in LaPlaya, and they all stand as 
national examples of cooperative endeavor. These centers provide direct services and education to young 
people, as well as special programs for the disabled, the elderly, and families in turmoil. The emphasis 
throughout these programs is the same - promoting dignity and self-respect through community 

Sister Isolina Ferre's lifetime of love and dedication has been widely recognized. She has 
received fourteen honorary degrees, the most recent from Yale University in 1992, and the list of her 
awards is literally five pages long. She received the Key to the City of New York in 1976, the Albert 
Schweitzer Prize for Humanitarianism from Johns Hopkins University in 1989, the International Peace 
Award from the Eisenhower Foundation in 1992, and the Hispanic Heritage Award for Education in 
1993, to name just a few. 

In everything she has done. Sister Isolina has been inspired by a great love for God, and for her 
brothers and sisters. "Work is not work; work is love" she has said, and throughout her years of 
ministry, her love has touched and transformed thousands of lives. 

It is therefore with great respect and esteem, that the Board of Trustees of St. Joseph's College, 
by the power vested in them by the Regents of the University of the State of New York, bestow on Sister 
Isolina Ferre, the degree of 

Bottor of iiumane Hetterg

Mario DeRita Passero '69 

Maria De Rita Passero graduated from St. Joseph's College 
in 1969 with a degree in Social Science. "If I knew then," she 
writes, "what I know now, a degree in business would have been 
more appropriate." 

"Shortly after graduation, on June 28, 1969, I married Peter 
Passero, and while he was attending Georgetown Dental School 
I worked for a law firm as an accountant-bookkeeper. In Peter's 
senior year, I gave birth to our daughter Kim, now 22, who is 
following in her father's footsteps. She will enter Maryland 
Dental School in the fall. 

Our son, Kevin, now eighteen, came into our lives when 
Peter was in Periodontal School. We moved and settled in the 
Washington, DC, area where I worked as a Junior 
Accountant/Bookkeeper. My focus on accounting led me to take 
courses at our local college in order to prepare for the CPA 
exams. Midway through my studies, my neighbor and friend, 
Bernadette Zoucha, would come over to help me prepare for the 
exams. She was a CPA but very unhappy in this field. She 
would often say that she wished she could open a retail gift 
store. The seed grew. After many conversations together, much 
thought, and considerable soul-searching, we decided to open a 
gift shop in the business district of downtown District of 
Columbia. And so The Horse of a Different Color was bom. 
It is eight years now since our little store became a reality. We 
have a thriving business, all-consuming and very exciting. The 
store is divided into different departments. Gifts for Baby, 
Wedding, Congratulations, Get Well, Birthday, and Sports- 
related themes, can all be found in our 1,000 square feet of 
space. In addition to our varied inventory, we also specialize in 
custom gift baskets, and for these we found it necessary to have 
a small gourmet food section. During the hours from noon to 
three o'clock, our store is busy with customers, mainly business 
people on their lunch hour looking for gifts. We offer free 
wrapping, a delivery service and United Parcel shipping. We try 
to make their shopping hassle-free in every way. 

Another component of our walk-in store is a phone-in gift 
service for customers who wish to order gift baskets this way. 
Added to the day to day operation of the store are the tasks of 
buying, inventory, meeting sales reps, displaying and arranging 
items, hiring help, bookkeeping, and paying bills and trying to 
analyze new marketing techniques. 

Owning your own business can be very rewarding. It 
requires hard work and good economical planning. The store 
has filled my life with much joy, and some worry. Looking back 
on these past eight years, I must say it has been a lot of fun!

Joel Bamett, a 1990 graduate of the Division of General 
Studies, with a degree in Management of Human Resources, 
really knows the meaning of success. He recently left the 
position of Assistant Vice President of Chemical Bank's 
Flatbush Avenue Branch in Brooklyn, to become Vice 
President and Branch Manager at Chase Bank in Manhattan. 

For Joel, opportunity is one door he never closes. When he 
started working for Chemical, his supervisors soon saw his 
potential and he was promoted a little more than a year later. 
At the time, the branch had not been doing well. Morale was 
down and the sales goal had not been met in five years. Joel 
worked hard to boost morale and to improve his employees" 
outlooks. In a short while they met their goals and have been 
doing well ever since. After two years he moved from Branch 
Manager to Assistant Vice President, a unique 
accomplishment. Usually both promotions require working 
and training five years. Joel accepted the position with energy 
and enthusiasm. 

Although happy at Chemical, Joel felt that the move to 
Chase was a good one, careerwise. As Vice President he would 
be supervising a larger number of employees and he saw this 
an opportunity to better himself. 

Joel received an Associate Degree in Business while in the 
Marine Corps. Influenced by his mother, Joyce Powell, a '79 
graduate of St. Joseph's, he enrolled in the Division of General 
Studies. The quality of the education and the flexibility of the 
classes appealed to him. 

Joel Bamett attributes his success to the faculty of the 
General Studies Division. The instructors at General Studies 
are career people; they work regular jobs during the day and 
they teach at night. Joel also saw this as a chance to network. 
He had copies of his resume always at hand and if he met 
anyone that he thought could help him, he gave him a copy. 
"This was contact," he said. "That's the way to get a job and it 
is how I got mine at Chemical. I took the management training 
program there and was hired. I owe a lot to SJC." 

In addition to working full time, Joel is studying at Long 
Island University. He hopes to graduate next year with an 
MBA. He also volunteers much of his time to young adults. 

Joel Bamett '90 

On Fridays, he is a mentor at Junior High School 113 in 
Brooklyn, which gives him the chance to be a role model and 
offer some advice on career opportunities. For Joel, it is 
important that youth today see positive images. He wants them 
to know that opportunities exist for them, too. 

Does Joel have time for hobbies? "I love to play tennis and 
play as much as I can. I also love to read detective novels, 
especially by Robert B. Parker. When I can, I play basketball 
with my nephews and do things with my nieces. I really like 
outdoor activities," Joel says. Joel is also a movie buff. His 
favorite actors are Clint Eastwood and Steven Seagal. 

Joel lives in Riverdale with his wife, Sherlann, a Nurse 
Practitioner at North Central Bronx Hospital.

The Other One 

Irene Parker Parks of the class of '32, 
died last November 29th. She was the eldest 
of three sisters. Marie, an art teacher was a 
graduate of Pratt. Marjorie '37 was an 
accomplished figure skater who won two 
National titles while a student at St. 
Joseph's. Irene would refer to them as "the 
artist" and "the skater" and with a rueful 
grin, herself as "the other one." But to her 
sisters, she was "the brain." 

Throughout her life, there were many 
who were influenced by her teaching, by 
her willingness to listen and advise and by 
her enthusiastic participation in her many 
avocations such as ornithology, mineralogy and astronomy, to 
name a few. Marjorie felt a deep sense of loss at her death and 
was moved to write about the life and accomplishments of her 
extraordinary sister. 

First and foremost, she writes, Irene to us was "the brain," 
with a clear analytical mind and a great intellectual curiosity. 
She was compassionate. When Marie and I were very young 
we were often afraid of the dark and she would call out from 
her own room and tell us stories to allay our fears. She was 
tolerant and understanding, She had firm opinions and wasn't 
hesitant about voicing them but not until after she had listened 
and weighed the problem. 

A bout with polio kept her from attending school until past 
her eighth year - but she made up for the delay, being advanced 
from grade to grade until she entered St. Joseph's at sixteen. 
Since our father and his brother were doctors, and Irene loved 
science, she wanted to follow in their footsteps. But Dad 
pointed out that women doctors had a rough time of it. He felt 
that becoming a teacher, with summer vacations, might be 
better. As a doctor he never had much of a vacation. Irene 
majored in science, and after graduating from St. Joseph's, 
earned her master's degree and eventually had all her credits 
for a PhD though not enough money to publish her thesis. 

Irene became a dedicated teacher in Syosset High School. 
She was a great success with her students, even the unruly. She 
allowed some of them to keep the cages of small animals on 
their desks during class, and they learned to care for and 
respect animals. At term's end she would select them for the 
"honor" (parent's permitting) of taking care of them over the 
summer because she deemed them "trustworthy." None of 
them ever let her down. 

Irene loved to travel and made full use of her summer 
vacations. She became an authority on rocks and minerals and 
combed the world - Europe, Canada, Japan, South America - 
for her specimens. She had some odd experiences in her 
travels. On a tour of Russia, with the St. Joseph's group, she 
brought along several paperback editions of mysteries to read 
on the plane and in hotels. At the Russian airport these were 
pulled out of her baggage and she was taken aside and queried. 

Irene Parker Parks '32 

It took Irene some time to explain that they 
were novels and not Bible tracts that she 
was suspected of trying to smuggle in. 

Some time later, when I went along 
with my husband on a business trip to 
Brazil, Irene learned that we would be 
staying at Copacabana Beach in Rio, on 
our way back from Sao Paulo. She begged 
me to bring some sand from the beach for 
her to analyze and compare with samples 
she had from other beaches. At the Rio 
airport I found it difficult to convince the 
customs officers that the plastic bag 
contained only sand and was not a drug- 
smuggling attempt. 

Another time, Irene signed up for a special and costly cruise 
in order to be at the most advantageous place to view Halley's 
Comet. It was a very select, scientific group. Frank Fields was 
a member of it. She became so stricken with sea sickness, she 
barely left her state room. Though disappointed at not being 
able to view it, she could say she was "there" and she joked 
about giving her stomach an expensive rest. 

Irene loved nature and as a young girl collected all the 
Burgess books on flowers, trees, birds, insects, etc. By her teen 
years she could identify bird calls and songs. She was the 
youngest lecturer on these subjects at the original Brooklyn 
Children's Museum on Brooklyn Avenue. 

Irene joined the Prospect Park Birdwatchers Club and 
participated in the annual New Year Bird Watch and Tally 
taken of all birds sighted, regardless of the weather. When a 
slight stroke prevented her from walking, she continued to 
attend this Watch in her car, collecting tallies from the 
"walkers." She was a member of the Audubon Society and 
attended many conventions, often giving lectures to interested 

After her death, a former member of Irene's Girl Scout 
Troop called me to offer condolences and to tell me that Irene 
had been a wonderful influence in her life and that she would 
like to meet me and reminisce about her. Then too, there was a 
phone call from out west from a fellow bird-watcher who 
wanted to share his viewing of a rare specimen. He was sorry 
to hear of her death and said that he would make a contribution 
to the Audubon society as a memorial in her name. 

For me, Irene's capacity for empathy and understanding 
was a constant factor in my personal and family life. She was 
a comfort, guide and advocate during some difficult years. My 
sister, the "other one" was rather, "one of a kind" and we all 
miss her. 

Marjorie Parker Smith '37 

The Class of '32 must add to this beautiful story about 
Irene, that she was an active participant in all our endeavors 
and we, too, will ever miss her joyful, loving spirit. 


& Northern Italy 

In April 

On Thursday, March 31st, twenty-six eager travelers 
boarded KLM Flight 287, bound for Switzerland and Northern 
Italy. The fourteen day trip included stays in Geneva, Bern, 
Interlaken, Lucerne, Stressa, Milan and Venice. From the 
minute our intrepid guide, Aase Cranil, a native of Denmark 
who has lived in Paris for thirty years met us at the baggage 
carousel in Geneva, to the hour she waved good-bye at Marco 
Polo Airport in Venice, we were treated to wonderful glimpses 
of the best in Switzerland and Northern Italy. 

We experienced the majestic Jungfrau peak (11401 feet) in 
blizzard conditions, and breathtaking Pilatus (6985 feet) from 
a cable car. We ate strawberries with country fresh double-rich 
cream in Gruyeres, strolled through Interlaken and 
Grindewald and enjoyed the neatness and order, and the 
flower-filled squares of Geneva and Bern, where we were 
warmly welcomed to Easter Vigil services in English. 

Crossing into Italy, we sailed Lake Maggiore to Isola Bella 
and other Borromean Islands. We sipped cappuccino on the 
balconies of our hotel rooms which overlooked Lake 
Maggiore, and we toured the Doge's Palace in Milan. We had 
box seats in La Scala, the world-famous opera house, and we 
gazed in reverence at da Vinci's Last Supper. In enchanting 
Venice, we checked out Harry's Bar, shopped on the Rialto 
Bridge where fine leather gloves were a bargain, and took a 
gondola ride right from the dock of our hotel. We saw Giotto's 
frescoes in Padua and the world's most beautiful mosaics in 
Ravenna. Of course, we celebrated the liturgy in the Duomo in 
Milan and toured St. Mark's Square and its cathedral. 

But always we had fun with each other, discovering a 
budding yodeler with us and a talented comrade who could 
blow an Alpine horn! Our meals were delicious and hotel 
service, top notch. On the KLM return flight to JFK, we 
stretched out and relived our two weeks of joy. Why don't you 
join us next year for another out-of-this-world travel 
experience? Watch these pages for further infonnation or write

On The Road Again 

With more than 12,000 alumni around the world, the 
Alumni Association decided to begin a new and exciting 

It began in March 1993 when Margaret Dwyer Minson, 
Director of Alumni Relations was to visit London. Before she 
left New York, she contacted alumni in England with the idea 
of getting together. Catherine Ahders Schmitt '56 and 
Christine Strianese Coulton '79 were able to accept her 
invitation to meet at the Dorchester Hotel, and for several 
hours they talked of St. Joe's, of friends and families. It 
became apparent that many of our alumni, although unable to 
participate in local alumni activities, were very anxious to stay 
involved with the college. 

The next step on our journey was a gathering on March 10, 
1993, in Bergen County, New Jersey, at the home of Maryann 
D'Annunzio Witowski. A blustery snow storm didn't stop 25 
alumni, who enjoyed a grand dinner and pleasant reminiscing. 

In July over 50 alumni, both Arts & Sciences and General 
Studies, met at the home of Margaret Dwyer Minson, in Belle 
Harbor, Long Island. Although many of the alumni knew each 
other for years, they hadn't realized they had St. Joseph's in 

The next group met in Manhattan. All eight decades had at 
least one representative. What began as a party of thirty 
strangers, ended with promises to get together again. 

In March of 1994, two alumni receptions were held, the first 
in mid-March at the home of Ellen Farrell '70 in Manhasset. It 
was a beautiful setting and a delightful evening. The second, 
on March 27th, was held at the waterfront home of Jeanne 
McGuire Glenn '69, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Sister George 
Aquin and Sister Mary Florence flew down to join them for a 
beautiful Mass and a lovely lunch. The Florida alumni are 
determined to begin regular meetings. 

On June 13th, a reception was held at the home of Mary 
McGrover Peyton '59. All Garden City alumni were invited 
and over thirty attended. Cocktails were served on the terrace, 
after which alumni moved indoors for a delightful and 
delicious dinner in her spacious home. 

The Alumni Association wishes to thank all those who 
opened their homes for these receptions. We are anxious to 
continue our journey and reach out to alumni across the 
country and around the world. 

If you are willing to be a hostess or help us to find a location 
for an alumni reception, please contact the alumni office at 718 
636-6882. The college will help to defray the cost of these

For Aurora Dias-Jorgensen '39, one of the 
high-points of her life came in 1979 when she 
first saw one of her paintings exhibited at the 
National Academy of Design in New York City. She was totally 
surprised when summoned to receive a Painting Award. Aurora 
had always wanted to be an artist, but her parents had denied her 
this choice. 

Aurora was born in Brazil in 1918 at the mouth of the 
Amazon River. When she was four-and-a-half years old, the 
family moved to the United States, entering through Ellis Island. 
She started her education in a New York City Public School 
without knowing English. Even so, she was in third grade within 
a year's time. Aurora matriculated at St. Joseph's College at age 
sixteen, choosing math as her major. Again, her father was 
against this choice for a girl and she respected his wishes. Being 
adept at languages - she spoke fluent Portugese - she majored in 
French and earned a bachelor's degree in 1939. 

Like so many graduates in the ■30's, Aurora could not find a 
teaching job and began a typing course as a job-entry tool. Her 
continuing search for work brought her to the National 
Broadcasting Company where there was an opening at fifty cents 
an hour. She gladly took it and with her linguistic ability, 
creative talent, and zeal, was soon putting together shortwave 
broadcasts to South America. During World War II Aurora 
became an announcer, writer, actress and director of programs to 
Brazil, and a member of ASCAP. 

Meanwhile, in spite of objections at home, Aurora began to 
study art at the Art Students' League, where she obtained a Merit 
Scholarship. Soon she abandoned broadcasting for art. In 1950 
she married Roger Jorgensen, an artist she met in art school. She 
returned to broadcasting at the Voice of America, working for 
the Brazilian and Indonesian Desks in New York City and in 
Washington, DC, where her daughter. Ellen, was born. 

While Ellen was growing up, Aurora decided to leave 
broadcasting and return to New York City. She began her 
teaching career at P.S. 108 in Spanish Harlem. There was little 
time for art while she attended Bank Street College and earned 
her Master's degree in Education. 

Aurora turned to writing and published a story book. Four 
Legs and a Tail. She wrote dramatizations of famous children's 

masterpieces which, in record form, 
were sold to schools throughout the 
United States; she contributed to the 
Bank Street readers and to new 
phonics systems, and provided 
educational guides for recorded 

During the last three of her twenty 
years of teaching, Aurora taught art classes for the whole school 
from kindergarten through sixth grade. Her pupils won local and 
international prizes. One boy's work was shown on the 
electronic billboard at Times Square. 

Upon retiring in 1980, Aurora took up her brushes again, with 
some misgivings as to focus, but soon found great joy and 
satisfaction in art and the art world. 

Since her 1979 showing, she has participated in numerous 
gallery shows in New York City and in New Jersey. She has 
been shown in two museums - the Museo del Barrio and the 
Museum of Contemporary Hispanic Art, both in New York City. 
In 1993 she was viewed at Provincetown, MA, Lexington, VA, 
and Wilkesboro, NC. She has been an annual participant of the 
National Association of Women artists since 1982, where, in 
1992, she won First Prize Medal of Honor and the Elizabeth 
Stanton Blake Memorial Award. She has had solo shows in the 
Broome Street Gallery in 1993. the Sirovich Gallery in 1987, and 
the Lida Gallery in 1982, all in New York City. 

Aurora Dias-Jorgensen is professionally affiliated with the 
National Association of Women Artists, where she served as 
■Vice-President 1987-89 during the organization's Centennial 
Celebration, the Art Students" League, Vistas Latinos, and 
Women in the Arts. She is currently on the Board of Artists' 
Equity in New York City. 

Early this year, during a five-week visit to France, Aurora 
filled a small drawing pad with exquisite fine-pen sketches of the 
French scenery she enjoyed, some of which are produced here. 
This summer one of Aurora's paintings can be seen in 
Garden of Delights, A Summer Exhibition by Women in the 
Arts, in the Steinhardt Conservatory in the Brooklyn Botanic 

"The artist interprets God's world," says Aurora. "This is a 
sacred act and each painting is a-prayer."

Audrey was an early member of the group of Catholic 
laywomen which began Grailville by purchasing a piece of 
land which they farmed, living on the product of their labors 
and stressing organic farming and ecological responsibility. In 
the fifty years since its foundation the farm has grown to 300 
acres and the Grail has expanded its activities to include the 
exploration of the ecology, of culture and races and health and 
economic priorities from the woman's viewpoint, and in the 
sponsorship of art, music, writing and theatre programs. 

Since her graduation from St. Joseph's College in 1949, 
with a BA in English, Audrey has had a significant role in all 
this development. In 1963 she earned a Master's degree in 

Liturgy at Notre Dame University, and in 1978 received a PhD 
in Religion and Culture from Union Graduate School. In the 
late '70's and early '80's she took a leave from the Grail to be 
with her parents in their last years. During this time she served 
on the Executive Board of the Alumni Association, acting as 
Recording Secretary from 1980 to 1984. 

In recent years, as Program Director, she has been 
responsible for organizing activities that bring to Grailville, 
from all over the world, women of many cultures and varied 
interests. For 1994, the 50th Anniversary year, Audrey has 
developed an impressive program of lectures, exhibits, retreats, 
workshops, liturgy and theatre, demonstrating the 
interconnection of feminism, spirituality and concern for the 

The jubilee year program will end on December 11, 1994. 
Recognizing that the birth of Jesus signifies a presence 
working for all oppressed people, Grailville will have a special 
Open House featuring its international creche exhibit. 

Vatchogue Senior Brunch 

Frank Favazza presents a gift from the Alumni Association to '94 
class representatives Siobhan Elgesem and Cheryl Cervenka, 

More than 300 people attended the annual brunch held for 
seniors who are graduating from the Suffolk campus. The 71 
seniors and their family members enjoyed the fare at the 
Bavarian Inn located on Long Island. 

Dr. Frank Favazza, president of the Suffolk Chapter of the 
SJC Alumni Association, welcomed the seniors as new 
members of the Alumni body. He explained that they will 
automatically become lifetime members upon graduation. Dr. 
Favazza told them that he and his fellow officers are in the 
process of planning a variety of activities for the Suffolk 
campus, and that SJC's first Walkathon, to be held on Sunday, 
April 23, 1995, is sure to be the highlight of the year. 

Folders containing information about the Alumni 
Association were distributed to the seniors. Those who did not 
attend the brunch will receive this material by mail. 


Help for Latino Families 

Elba Montalvo '68 

Elba Montalvo '68 
is Executive Director 
of the Committee for 
Hispanic Children and 
Families, Inc., which 
she founded in 1982. 
She and others saw the 
need to inform and 
educate Social Service 
providers to help them 
in their work with 
Latino families. 

Besides training these 
professionals, the 
Committee also holds 
community education 

workshops on issues affecting families, such as child abuse, teen 
pregnancy prevention, and domestic violence. In 1988, they 
produced a film on Domestic Violence, in Spanish with English 
subtitles, which won an award as the best film drama from the 
National Latino Film and Video Festival. 

Elba was bom in Puerto Rico. The family, parents and three 
daughters, of whom Elba was the youngest, moved to the United 
States, when she was four years old. They settled in Brooklyn 
where the children attended public school. Elba loved school and 
when she graduated from high school she registered at St. 
Joseph's College. She earned her bachelor's degree in Child 
Study in 1968. 

Elba's first job was teaching kindergarten in a bilingual 
program at P.S. 155. After a year, she accepted a position in a tri- 

lingual program - Spanish, English and Chinese - in a public 
school in Chinatown. While there, she was asked to coordinate a 
Bilingual Program for student teachers at P.S. 134, in the lower 
east side. 

After seven years of teaching, Elba accepted a position as 
Educational Director of a Day Care Center for pre-school and 
after-school groups. This was a non-profit organization and she 
served there for two and a half years. Elba left the Education 
field to establish the Committee for Hispanic Children and 
Families because she had seen that services for Latino families 
were not culturally appropriate and she wanted to be an advocate 
on their behalf. 

On June 24th, the Committee will celebrate the 12th year of its 
foundation and will host a gala benefit event to be held at the 
Joseph Papp Public Theater in Manhattan. It will feature such 
notables as Gregory Hines, Chita Rivero and Sonia Manzano- 
from Sesame Street. There will be Children's Performances, and 
an awards presentation to three students from the Committee's 
school counseling program, who will be especially honored for 
making a "turn-around" and becoming successful achievers. This 
special event will bring people together to see the 
accomplishments of CHCF in strengthening Latino families and 
hopefully to lend support for its ongoing activities. 

Elba Montalvo is a member of the Civilian Review Board, 
having been appointed by Mayor Dinkins. In March she was 
appointed to the United States Advisory on Child Abuse and 
Neglect. She also served on the Board of the Brooklyn Public 
Library for a year. Married to Zenon Arribalzaga, Elba has two 
children, Luis 20, and Amanda 15. 

Party^s Choice 

Last Spring, Huntington Democrats picked 
Joseph DeVito '87, a graduate of the Suffolk 
Campus, as their new Chairman. He replaced 
Frank Grimes who retired in March, and will 
serve until the term ends in October, when he 
will run for election. 

When Joseph was 12, the family moved from 
Brooklyn to Dix Hills, Long Island. He 
graduated from La Salle Military Academy in 
Oakdale and received his bachelor's degree in 
Business Administration from St. Joseph's in 
1987. He holds a master's degree in Business 
Administration from C. W. Post, Brookville. 

In his early twenties, Joseph became 
politically active when a family friend induced 
him to work for the Assembly campaign of 
Thomas DiNapoli. In 1989 he helped to 
coordinate the campaign of former Supervisor, 
Stephen Ferraro and in 1991 he worked on the campaigns of 
Ann Hurley and William Rebolini In 1990 Joseph ran 

Joseph DeVito 'S7 

party together at 

unsuccessfully for Assemblyman of the 10th 
Assembly District. At one time he served on 
the staff of former U.S. Representative, 
Thomas Downey. 

Joseph DeVito acknowledges that there is a 
lot of work to be done in his present job 
because of the financial debt and the internal 
friction of the Democratic party. Primarily, the 
feuding is due to lack of agreement on town 
policy. His goal is to unite the party and bring 
down the debt. He has the exuberance and the 
energy to do this, thus building for the future 
of the party. 

Realizing there are no quick solutions to the 
problems of the Huntington Democrats, 
Joseph plans to cultivate a new generation of 
members. "It's going to take hard work and 
time," he says, "but we're going to bring the 
a nice steady pace." 

Ordained Minister 

The Year in Review 

Diana Purcell Chapman 

Sponsored by St. John's 
Episcopal Church in 
Wellsville, New York, Diana 
Purcell-Chapman was 

ordained to the Sacred Order 
of Priests in the Episcopal 
Church on January 22, 1994. 
Looking back on her years as 
a student at the Patchogue 
campus of St. Joseph's 
College, she says that the 
solid academic background 
she received helped her 
decide on her goals and to 
follow through to achieve 
them. At the time she felt the 
call to the ordained ministry 
and this became her goal. 
Diana Purcell attended St. Joseph's as an adult student and 
earned a bachelor's degree in Human Relations in 1980. At that 
time, her three children were away at college, her son in 
Florida, and her daughters in upstate New York. She moved 
upstate to Wellsville and continued her studies at Colgate- 
Rochester Divinity School, Bexley Hall, and received her 
Master of Divinity degree in 1986. 

Since 1970, Diana had been registrar for the Finger Lakes 
Conferences held at Hobart William Smith College in Geneva, 
NY, under the auspices of Province II of the Episcopal Church. 
These conferences helped to clarify her knowledge of the 
ordained ministry and to be open to the call. She spent the 
summer of 1985 at Eger Lutheran Nursing Home on Staten 
Island, working on an internship program as hospital chaplain, 
where she learned more about the role of a chaplain and pastor. 
In 1989 Diana began participating in the Chaplaincy Program 
at Jones Memorial Hospital in Wellsville. She was also 
involved in the Clinical Pastoral Education Program at both 
Jones Memorial Hospital in Wellsville and the Strong 
Memorial Hospital in Rochester. 

Reverend Purcell-Chapman has been active in the church as 
a Lay Minister, Parish Secretary and Editor of a parish 
newsletter on Long Island, as well as the Allegheny County 
Episcopal Newsletter, Pacem. For many years, she has been a 
member of the Order of St. Luke's healing ministry. 

At the present time, Diana is Pastoral Care and 
Bereavement Coordinator with Comstock Hospice of 
Allegheny County, where she assists and counsels patients 
with a medical diagnosis of six months or less to live, and later 
comforts the bereaved family members for a year or more after 
the death. Diana is the leader of two monthly counseling 
groups, one called SHARE for families who have lost a baby 
through miscarriage or sudden infant death. The second is for 
people with AIDS or who are HIV positive. 

Reverend Diana Purcell-Chapman serves in the Allegheny 
County Episcopal Ministry, a cluster ministry of six churches 
under the leadership of the Reverends Ralph and Elizabeth 
Gorskoph. Her duties include conducting services and 
preaching in the six parishes. 

In 1990, Diana Purcell married G. Fred Chapman, a resident 
of the Wellsville area. Between them they have eight children 
and four grandchildren. 

Alumni activities began last September 25th with a great 
day at Belmont Race Track. This event is becoming more 
popular every year. The following day, the Golden Graduates, 
those who graduated fifty or more years ago, received a warm 
"welcome back" to the college, and members of the class of 
1943 were formally inducted into the society. 

On October 7th, over 50 alumni gathered in the New York 
Telephone Building in Garden City for our Fall Phonathon. 
Valerie Wertz Quinlan '70 and Pat Luciana English '72 were 
chairpersons. We received over $44,000 in pledges. 

We acknowledged our Major Donors at a special reception 
for them last December. Some alumni present were Clare 
Bauch '45, Ann Bauch '56, Maria Falconetti '70, Maureen 
Dougherty Fraser '53, Doris Oshinski Powers '53, Mary St. 
John Murphy '24, and Anna Sullivan '40. 

After the snow-filled months of January and February, 
activities started up again in March. Our undergraduates 
organized a mini-phonathon at the college and raised over 
$16,000 in pledges. 

April was a busy month. On the 16th, more than 400 alumni 
found their way to the Garden City Hotel for the Annual Spring 
Luncheon. The following day, members of the class of '44 and 
'69 met on the Brooklyn campus for a Mass and Brunch in a 
special private celebration of their gold and silver 

On the 19th, 36 alumni and friends returned to Garden City 
for the Spring Phonathon. Over $24,000 was pledged. Our 
Brooklyn General Studies alumni held their phonathon in the 
265 building on April 21st and raised almost $5,000 in pledges. 
On April 28th, 16 volunteers at the Patchogue Campus 
Phonathon received pledges of $1,900. 

The final event took place on April 27th. The Alumni 
Association hosted a luncheon for the soon-to-be alumni, the 
Class of 1994, which took place in the 245 parlors on the 
Brooklyn Campus.

St, JosepWs 

The Chionchio family from left to right: Gina '83, Gerardette '79, Laura '94, 

Frances Fumo Chionchio '55, Frank '86, 

Josephine Gallo Chionchio '85 and Lisa '81 

On June 4th, Laura Chionchio became the seventh member 
of the Chionchio family to graduate from St. Joseph's College. 
Her mother, Frances Fumo, graduated in 1955. In August of 
1956 she married Francis Chionchio. Five of her children and 
one daughter-in-law received their bachelor degrees from St. 
Joseph's. The pursuit of their professions reveals a wide 
variance of interests. 

Gerardette Chionchio Stancato '79 received her JD from 
Brooklyn Law School in 1982 and is a Justice for the New York 
State Department of Motor Vehicles. Lisa Chionchio Gallo 
earned her bachelor's degree, magna cum laude in 1981. She 
received a master's degree in a Special Education from New 
York University and is a Special Ed teacher at Montauk Junior 
High School. She is the mother of Gabrielle, age six months. 
Gina Chionchio llluzzi graduated magna cum laude in 1983. 

She majored in math and worked as a computer engineer for 
NYNEX. She is now on leave to care for her two children, 
Christina three-and-a-half and Ginette nineteen months old. 
Frank Chionchio '86 received his DDS from New York 
University and is now in the four year Oral and Maxilo-Facial 
program at Brooklyn Hospital. His wife, Josephine Gallo 
Chionchio, a magna cum laude graduate of the class of 1985, 
was a business major and is staff manager at New York Life. 
Their little girl, Michelle, is two years old. Our new graduate, 
Laura '94 plans to teach history in high school. More important 
to her right now is the preparation for her wedding in August. 
This busy family is an outstanding example in belief of the 
value of education and an acknowledgment of the excellence of 
St. Joseph's College. 


It was late in the '60's that Jane Leder Horn, editor of 
Alumnagram, phoned me to say that her husband had been 
assigned to a job out of state and the family had to move as soon 
as possible. She hadn't quite finish the current issue. Would I 
take over? With some misgivings, I agreed. Fortunately. I had 
observed and learned more than I realized from Grace LeRoy, 
former editor. 

Now, several decades later, I have completed my last issue. 
I want to acknowledge and thank the many alums who have 
contributed over the years to this endeavor-my loyal class 
agents, those whom I have interviewed, members of the 
Executive Board, faculty, staff, my proof readers, the 
Administration, those in the Development Office, our student 
help. . . did I miss anyone? Yes, my printer and especially 

Many thanks - it's been work, but a lot of fun, too!

Helping People 

When Marcia Edwards '83, a graduate of the Division of 
General Studies, gets involved in a project, she gives it her all. 
It is her nature to help people all she can. 

"I find it very rewarding to work with others," she says, and 
she spends most of her time doing that. Marcia is the Program 
Director and HIV coordinator at Flushing Meadows-Corona 
Park Community Corporation Scatter Site Housing, where she 
works with AIDS affected clients and families. Part of her job 
is to provide housing and intensive care management to her 
clients and to care for them in a holistic program. 

Marcia also works as a part-time faculty member at St. 
Joseph's Division of General Studies. She teaches three 
courses: Sexually Transmitted Diseases, Addictions and 
Dependency, Alcoholism: The Family and Society, and 
Community Health. She attributes her desire to teach to what 
she learned from her teachers in General Studies. 

"The professors here did more than just teach me. They 
gave one hundred percent of themselves and I wanted to give 
something back. I love working with people and this lets me do 
it," she explained. 

A self-proclaimed workaholic, Marcia is taking courses for 
her PhD in Health Services. In 1990, she earned her master's 
degree in Social Work. She manages to work part time in 
psychotherapy, as a counselor. 

Marcia' s desire to help others was instilled in her by her 
parents. "My mother and father taught us (my brothers and 
sister) never to forget where we came from, and always to do 
what we can when we can. I come from a family of people in 
the helping professions - nurses, doctors, and social workers!" 

In her spare time - which is rare - Marcia likes to listen to 
music and read up on fashion and interior design. She is an 
antique collector and enjoys refinishing and refurbishing 
furniture. She loves to cook and bake, especially West Indian 
food. Marcia worked with her sister in the catering business for 
a while, but now handles catering only for family and close 

When asked if she had performed any unusual or special 
accomplishments, Marcia stopped and thought. "Well. . . 
someone once told me I was 'Mother Earth' because my life is 
geared towards helping people as a whole. I just think it's a 
good service when you can do that." 

Christine Eschenauer 


For two 1994 seniors at St. Joseph's College in Patchogue, 
college days were a family affair. Two sets of daughters and 
mothers ascended to the stage to receive their diplomas, albeit 
in different majors. 

Both mothers plugged away at St. Joseph's for ten years to 
earn their degrees in Health Administration. Margaret O'Brien, 
65, of Bay Shore, teamed with her daughter, Maureen Greco, 
37, of Ridge, NY. Maureen, holding down a full time job and 
watching over two teen-age daughters, managed 48 course 
credits in her last year to earn her degree. 

Linda Esposito, RN, the second mother, graduated with her 
daughter, Lisa 22, who earned her degree in Elementary 
Education. Another tandem event for each of them took place 
several months ago. Linda Esposito became engaged last 
December and Lisa followed suit a few months later. 

We hope to hear from these grads in their class notes 
column for another chapter in their lives. 

Class Volunteers 

The Executive Board of the Alumni Association has voted 
to expand and reorganize the role of class representatives. 
Bettyanne McDonough '59, who has agreed to become the 
chairperson of the Committee on Class Agents, sees first the 
need for Decade Chairpersons (i.e. the 20s, 30s etc.). This 
person will look for volunteers from each class to fill the 
position of Class President. The President, in turn, will look 
for class members to fill the other categories below. 

The Executive Board is hoping that the present class 
agents will continue to serve their classes. 

1. Class President is the overall class leader. All other 
representatives report to the President who is responsible for 
all aspects of reunions, class news and class giving. 

2. Class News Agents are responsible for soliciting and 
compiling class notes and all vital statistics. They submit a 
class notes column twice a year for Alumnagram. Any 
change of name/address must be forwarded immediately to 
the Alumni Office. 

3. Class Fund Agents (should be two people for this 
position) assist in soliciting individual class members for 
their annual contribution to the college. Once a year they will 
sign a letter to classmates requesting this. They also recruit 
volunteers for phonathon. 

4. Class Reunion Agent is responsible for all aspects of 
class reunions, organizing sub-committees, setting dates, 
activities, and with the mailings. Reunions take place every 
five years. 

Spring Phonathons VITAL STATISTICS 

Admittedly a bit tired, one alumna who was a first-time 
volunteer at a phonathon, summed up her work at the end of 
the evening with, "This was a fun thing to do!" But we know 
it took a lot of energy and concentration to solicit funds for the 
college and we express our sincere thanks to her and all the 
volunteers list below. 

The Brooklyn Campus' first Spring Phonathon was held on 
April 19, 1994, at Garden City. 36 volunteers watched the 
tally rise to over $24,000 in pledges.

Regina Munz Meyer, Mary St. John Murphy and Alice McGrane 
Feeley represented 1924 at the Spring Luncheon in the Garden City 
Hotel. Our class was honored as a very "special class." We all enjoyed 
the luncheon immensely and were delighted to be seated with Grace 
O'Brien Martin, Margaret Normile McLoughiin and Marita 
Rockefeller Ryan. Regina, Marita and Alice had their daughters as 
guests and they enjoyed each others' company. Teresa Dolan Janton 
had a most enjoyable Easter with a grandson and his young family who 
live nearby. The children had a hilarious Easter egg hunt! Rita Fearon 
Bryan is well and looking forward to a visit from a grandchild to her 
Florida home. Mildred Hayes Donohue and Vincent report that all 
three expected great-grandchildren arrived safely and are adding great 
joy to their families. Angela Donaldson sends her best wishes to all 
and thanks for the notes and telephone chats. 

Alice McGrane Feeley, 118 8th Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11215 


Once again I have the unhappy task of reporting the death of a member 
of the class of '25. Margaret Roche Moore died on April 27th after a 
long illness. Please remember her in your prayers. The Spring 
Luncheon was a delightful affair. Grace O'Brien Martin attended with 
two of her daughters, Judy Martin Lucas '57 and Grace Martin 
Cipriani '60. Sister George gave an interesting talk bringing us up to 
date on the news of the college. Next year will be our seventieth 

Grace O'Brien Martin, 39 Grove Street, Hillsdale, NJ 07642 


The Luncheon was a delight. Father Cantley said the Mass and it was so 
nice to to be one of the 400 or so, all praying together for our college. 
There were three of us from '27, Bernadette Dolan, Rose Stuart 
Doran (all the way from Wayne, PA) and yours truly. We were seated 
with Alice McGrane Feeley, Regina Munz Meyer, and Mary St. 
John Murphy, all of '24. Grace O'Brien Martin '25, and Eleanor 
Dolan Reardon and Marita Rockefeller Ryan '26. Our trip from New 
Jersey to and from Garden City was executed by Grace Martin and her 
charming chauffeur daughters, Judy Martin Lucas '57 and Grace 
Martin Cipriani '60. It was a perfect day. Katharine Normile Mylod 
now has eleven great-grandchildren. She has two weddings of 
grandchildren that she has to attend in the near future. Kevin 
McLoughiin Jr. was recently married in Kentucky. Travelling to these 
celebrations tends to keep us "young!" Please send news for the next 
issue. Blessings! 

Margaret Normile McLoughiin, 201 Webb Av 

River Edge, NJ 07661 


Once more the angel of death has visited '28 and taken Constance 
Reynolds Furey home. She spent recent years in Colorado and we 
sympathize with her family and friends on her death and will remember 
her in our prayers. Dorothy Hand, first to respond to our appeal for 
news, is still active in the Columbiettes, the Ladies Auxiliary of the Fire 
Department, Retired Teachers' Association, Fatima Guild and the 
Salvation Army. She would welcome any members of '29 who drive on 
Route 25 on Long Island, to stop in and visit. Emma Bergen would also 
welcome visitors at the Bond Hotel in St. Petersburg, Florida, where she 
is a permanent resident. Emma still writes poetry for her own 
enjoyment and for anyone else who might like to see it. Agnes Kelly 
Bryan and John have a regular routine of visiting the sick, bringing 
them Communion and words of comfort. They expect a visit from their 
grandson, Andrew, when he will be on a short leave from the Peace 
Corps. Mary Keller Lawler, when I called her, had little time to talk 
because she was being picked up by a friend and going on a shopping 
spree, then to a meeting of her Home Study Club. Mary's sister, Patty, 
who lives in Texas with her sister. Bo, is recovering nicely from a 
broken hip. Mary Kelly Hoermann doesn't go out as much as she did, 
but enjoys many visits from family and friends, and especially the 
grandchildren who give . er lots of attention. Mary Murray Kelly, 

although unable to navigate on her own is well taken care of and is in 
good spirits. She can be reached by phone any day from nine to five at 
201-796-0185. Jeannette Farrell Amery was unable to represent the 
class of '28 at the luncheon, as she has done all these years, due to an 
ailment which kept her close to home. However, she manages to walk 
to church every day, do all her marketing, cooking, banking, and even 
her income tax! She attends meetings of the Nursing Sisters Home 
Visiting Association, Rosary Society and most parish functions. 
Jeannette spent Christmas holidays in Holmdell, NJ, with Sean's 
family where they were joined by the Amerys from Manalapan. All her 
grandchildren were there, even Elizabeth, who managed a week home 
from Oxford. Grandson Ted, now a working man, in Brooklyn, is with 
grandma but spends weekends in Manalapan or elsewhere. Jeannette 
has been searching for "The Lost Chord" - being the college song "St. 
Joseph's Mother Ours" which in the 20's won a contest conducted by 
the Music Department, for a college song. Jeannette composed the 
music and received an award. It was played at the 1928 Commencement 
and sung at assemblies in the '20s and '30s. If anyone has a copy of the 
lyrics, which was in the 1928 Commencement Program, please send it 
to her at the address below.

On Saturday, April 16th, we shared the celebration of our Sixty-fifth 
anniversary with the Golden Jubilee Class of 1944, the Silver Jubilee 
class of 1969 and the other classes of '"fours" and "nines." Dorothy 
Donelon Faller who came from Columbia, MD, Dorothy Devereau 
Ryan, Helen Griffiths and myself, Marie Keegan, enjoyed the Mass 
and Luncheon at the Garden City Hotel. Seated with us at the table were 
Ann Dolan McBride '30, from Mansfield, Ohio, who plans to move to 
Washington, DC in June, and Bernadette Dolan '25. Earlier this month 
we received the sad news of Anne Marie Dunnigan's death in 
January. Please remember her in your prayers. If you have any more 
news of our classmates, send it on to me.

Catherine Wheeler Smith has no news except that three of her 
grandchildren have received doctorates and two are getting married 
this July. 

No class agent. 


Margaret Ferry Healy has 21 grandchildren and 3 great 
grandchildren. She and Nicholas still travel around the world. This year 
her husband will be lecturing in Greece. They enjoy every summer in 
their home in Ireland. And they spend much time visiting their children 
and grandchildren around the country.

Kathlyn Ansbro Wurts and Edward have had a very happy, busy life 
in Stuart, Florida. In June, they will celebrate 57 years of married life 
and Edward will celebrate 15 years in retirement. Their children, Edward 
III who is married and has four children. Jack, and Kathie all live in 
California. Ed and Kay visit the children and grandchildren twice a year. 
Their particular interest in Stuart is their ten plus years of volunteer 
work in the library. Mary Whelan Phelan and Buddy visited the Wurts 
for a "happy but too short reunion." I begin with the welcome news 
that we will have our Liturgy and Luncheon this year at the home of 
Helen Coughlan Worthley in Glen Cove, on Wednesday, September 
21, 1994. Father John Worthley will be celebrant. All details will be sent 
in August. Please circle that date now on your calendar and resolve to 
be there! Thanks to all the prayers, Claire Smith is recovering from 

her sudden heart attack last fall and hopes to be with us in September. I 
spoke with Winifred McMahon, always serene and pleasant and 
interested in our class affairs. I'm sure she would enjoy a call or note 
from you. Call me for her address or phone number. I also spoke with 
Edna Dawkins McDonald and Christine Barton who are coping 
with their physical problems. My daughter Ruth and I visited Kay Frey 
Lynch at Rosary Hill in Hawthorne. Kay looked absolutely radiant as 
she told us how she had been praying for Ruth's return to full health for 
the past several years. We are so grateful and hopeful as Ruth seems to 
have found the "right" doctor. Kay expressed a great sense of loss at 
Irene Parker Parks' death. The annual Spring Luncheon of the alumni 
at Garden City drew four '32ers - Helen Coughlan Worthley, Mildred 
Hinas Ryan, Anne McCormack Fennessy and Mary Whelan 
Phelan. We shared a table with Marguerite (Marda) Doyle Ticho '30 
and Margaret Ferry Healy '31. Just to show you that we gals get 
around, Margaret Healy and I met again that same evening in 
Manhattan at a concert of the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick's Glee Club of 
which Margaret's husband Nicholas Healy has been a member for 
many years and which my son Father Keith Fennessy recently joined. 
What a memorable day! Kathlyn Wurts and Mary Phelan, Kay's 
house guest, drove from Stuart to Fort Lauderdale for the reunion of St. 
Joseph's Florida alumni. Margaret Oliver Kaiser, who lives in 
Boynton Beach was unable to go. Marge has a very active life. She and 
her husband enjoy the pleasures of Florida as well as staying in touch 
with their three children, five grandchildren and her sister Genevieve 
Oliver who lives nearby. Mary White Kearney is doing well, trying to 
keep up with all the celebrations of her family. Mary and Buddy Phelan 
ditto! As we anticipate our fall reunion, we cannot help but remember 
Irene Parker Parks who always arrived - sometimes late - for every 
event. Her daughter. Donna Crawford and I spoke of her many talents 
and accomplishments. 

Anne McCormack Fennessy, 2 Horatio St., New York, NY 10014 


Dorothy Harold McNeil who lives in Florida writes, "This was the 
year for "them" to visit "me" - from Connecticut, Wisconsin and New 
York. Dorothy will be going to Washington DC, Wisconsin and 
Colorado in the next few months "when their snow has melted off!" 
Dot says the Florida Alumni re-union was a huge success. She never 
realized there were so many grads in the area. "Thank you, Jeanne, 
and your family for entertaining us so beautifully." Dot continues to 
volunteer at the County Library, Beach Branch every Wednesday 
afternoon. It is right on the water's edge. She hopes to make a 
Franciscan Tour in June. We just heard from Catherine Gebelein 
Carlson Earl that her husband, Herbert W. Earl, died on February 22, 
1994. Please remember them in your prayers.

Virginia Conran Cheasty and Cye are enjoying life in Stanford, CT. 
They have sixteen grandchildren. Four years ago they had a family 
reunion in North Carolina. Robert came from California and joined 
Patrice, Mary & Peter, Ginny & Neil and Jack, who is a major in the 
Medical Corps with the 101st Airborne in Fort Campbell. Betty Zangle 
made a trip to Arkansas, to be present at the marriage of a dear pal of 
hers in Little Rock. Betty plans a trip to Rochester this summer to see 
some of the friends she made while working there. At the luncheon in 
the Garden City Hotel, it was great to be with Helen Browne (who won 
$75 at the raffle), Edna Brennan Maloney, Mary E. Farrell, Marion 
Musante, and Dolores Pyne Dunleavy '36 and other '36ers. . . a very 
pleasant group. I met and talked with my cousin, Margaret Ferry 
Healy '31, who looks younger and acts peppier than many of our age. 
Florence Kemp Carberry's daughter. Sister Kathleen, attended the 
St. Saviors High School alumnae reunion and met other classmates. 
Florence's grandson, Shawn, is enrolled in Our Lady of Angels Grade 
School. Kay Allen and her sister visited our old neighborhood grade 
school, St. Francis of Assisi and found it in good condition. Grace 
Flannery Morris enjoys her apartment on Shore Road. She says that 
her daughter, Meg, is happy working for a lawyer in Garden City where 
she and Edward live. Bernadette Moroney Metzler reports from 
Merritt Island, FL, that her son Jack and wife Kathy are in Germany on a 
much needed vacation, leaving the cares of Arlington National 
Cemetery far behind. While we were bundling up and enduring the 
winter of winters, Bernadette was turning on her air conditioner and 
enjoying the pool at her apartment complex. A sad note for Bern was 
the death of her brother, John. Mary Walsh Steiger's son, Paul, and 
his wife, Heidi, and two older daughters were at Epcot in Orlando, 
enjoying a stay at the Dolphin Hotel. Mary has plans to travel to 
Olympia, WA, then to Vancouver to see Jim and his family before going 
to San Diego, and then on to see a grandson at the University of 
Nebraska, and finally to Evergreen, near Denver, CO. Ed and I visit his 
nephew in Denver, so we had a common interest in that beautiful part 
of America. Steve and Sylvia Goerlitz Myers had a wonderful winter 
at Delray Dunes Country Club in Florida. They returned to Manhasset in 
early May. "Golf and Bridge are still my favorite recreations," she says. 
Gilda Datri Nisco occasionally visits her son in California. Daughter, 
Diane, is manager of a doctor's office in Point Pleasant, NJ, and Sandra 
works on exports and imports. "We take it easier than we used to and 
occasionally go to the opera," she says. Helen Schwarz Owendorf 
still lives in Cranbury-Monroe, NJ, in a delightful condo with plenty to 
do ■ golf, tennis, swimming plus volunteer church work. They're busy, 
too, with 13 grandchildren, ages 6 months to 32 years old. A great- 
grandchild is expected in November. Again, my usual plea - send me a 
postcard or letter or phone me with your news' 


Present for a great 60th reunion in Garden City were Ada Scully 
Cahill, Vivienne Kelly Devlin, Chris Kavanagh Daly, Fran 
McGovern Delaney, Louise Fallon DeLellis from Florida, Agnes 
Brown Drummond from Maryland, Margaret Bier, Lori Ansbro 
Gerathy, Margaret Langan McDermott, Gina Latorraca, Alice 
O'Reilly and Marie Lilly; We especially missed Angela Mazzoli 
Rosa, Dorothy Harrison Harrington, and Muriel Hottenroth 
Magenheimer who usually come Chris Kavanagh Daly's son, 
Christopher, is a surgeon in Pittsburgh at the forefront of laser surgery. 
He has lectured all over the United States and the East. He and his wife 
have three fine sons, two in college and one in prep school. Dot 
Burgen Loehfelm writes from Cocoa Beach that she was unable to 
attend the lluncheon because she wasn't returning home until the 28th. 
Her daughter, Eileen, is a Sister of Mercy serving at Georgian Court, 
New Jersey. Mickey Kiernan Culligan's letter reached me when I got 
home from the luncheon. She sends her regards to the '34 vets! She is 
travelling north in May to attend her granddaughter's graduation from 
the University of Maryland and in August to visit her son in Henderson, 
New York. Mickey will complete her 9th year on the parish Board of 
Education in Florida. It is with sorrow that we inform you of the death of 
Eleanor Lagattuta Murphy recently. Her husband, John, is still living 
and is in the same nursing home where Eleanor was. Please remember 
them in your prayers. Agnes Brown Drummond is now living in an 
adult residential community with three levels of care, in Catonville, 
'Maryland. She has a lovely apartment, and there are lots of activities.

Fifty-eight years ago we left the halls of St. Joe's to take our places in 
the world! Many of us have remained friends throughout the passing 
years and have spent happy hours together. But -there are so many of 
the class of '36 whom we never hear from. I'm sure during all these 
years they have news that would interest the rest of us and which 
should be contributed to our class column. Do contact me at any time 
by phone or letter. The Mass on April 16th, prelude to our alumni 
luncheon in Garden City, was celebrated by Monsignor Michael Cantley, 
whose homily was most inspiring. Attending from our class were Betty 
Pyne Dunleavy, Dot Delay with her sister, Ruth, Alice Hagan 
Finnerty and Betty Bender White with her sister, Jean. Between 
snowstorms this winter Dot and Ruth drove to North Sarasota. All their 
aches and pains were alleviated by the warm sunshine. Now they look 
forward to spending the summer at Atlantic Beach. Alice's second 
great-grandchild, a boy, was born on St. Patrick's Day. She and Jack are 
enjoying life in their condo. Dot Pyne Dunleavy's tenth great- 
grandchild was born February 1st. In July, Dot will head for Point 
Lookout and hopes to enjoy the cool ocean breezes. Betty Bender 
White has no grand-children but is enjoying her thirteen grandnieces 
and nephews. Dot told Mary E. Farrell to say "hello" to her new 
pastor. Father John Savage, who was her pastor at St. Jerome's. They 
really miss him at her church. Still with no addresses are members of 
our class - Evelyn Hagan, Dorothy Kenny Crane, Ruth McQuillan 


McCabe. Have you a clue to their whereabouts? Alice M. Enright 

retired from hgih school counseling in 1973 and then worked for several 
years in business. Since 1975 she has been and active Guild Member of 
St. Jude Hospital, Fullerton, CA. Since January 1994, Alice has been a 
volunteer at La Habra Public Library in their book shop. Don't forget to 
send me your news for next issue I

Muriel Campion Semple writes us of the death of her son. Dr. Robert 
L. Semple, of Lyons, Illinois, on January 14th. Let us remember her, 
Robert and all dear to them in our prayers. We mourn also the loss of 
our classmate, Margaret Scannell McAuliffe who died last Fall. She 
is the sister of Anne Scannell Smith class of '35. Please pray for them 
and their families. Marguerite Griffin Bjornson received tragic news 
this year. Her only child, Anne Reilly Dines, and her husband, Alan, 
retired from the Royal Air Force, were brutally murdered in their home 
in Belize on Febuary 6th. Ann was a well-known horticulturalist and had 
58 books published on the subject. She received special commendation 
from Buckingham Palace for one book in particular titled "The Rose." 
Ann leaves two children, Peter and Lynne. I'm sure it will help 
Marguerite to hear from you. Rita Wood Rague, in Delray, FL, looks 
forward to a visit from her son and his family. She and Muriel 
Campion Semple, who lives in Boca Raton attended the Florida 
Alumni meeting in a beautiful home on the Inland Waterway. The west 
coast alumnae need a meeting nowl Eileen Brennan was in 
Washington DC to attend her grandnephew's First Communion and 
enjoyed a family reunion there. She is still active in Teachers' 
Retirement and in AAUW. Carol Denelfo has become a regular 
overseas commuter and now plans another visit to London and Paris. 
Edith Bruce is bound for the north this summer • taking a trip to 
Alaska on the Inland Waterway. In November Marjorie Parker Smith 
lost her sister, Irene Parker Parks '32. Let us remember them in our 
prayers. There's a new dog in Marjorie's life - a stray Husky that she 
befriended and that keeps her well protected. This summer she hopes 
to attend the wedding of a niece in Detroit. Her son, Kevin, and she 
participated in the 100 yard sprint (varied age categories) at the Eastern

She has been blessed with good health and continues to socialize with 
family and friends, plays golf, and enjoys walking on the boardwalk at

Nearby are the golf course, swimming pool and the club house. She has 
ample opportunity to partake in the activities which she finds beneficial

alumni in the area. We were saddened to learn of the death of Sister 
Margaret Louises Shea last December and are proud of our early 
association as she began her life-time career with the pre-school at St. 
Joseph's. She will be in our prayers. It is with sorrow, too, that we 
report that Peggy Magee Buckley died on April 7th. Frances 
McLoughlin Reilly drove to Peekskill for her funeral Mass at the 
Church of the Holy Spirit. Norma Straus Slater and her daughter 
drove in from New Jersey. In February Peggy had called Frances with 
the happy news of a granddaughter, Anna Faith, born to daughter Meg 
at the end of January. t\i'eg also has an adopted daughter, Lily, who is 
three years old. Norma and Frances had lunch together after the 
funeral. Norma's granddaughter, Kristin Slater, 13, is an outstanding 


soccer player and member of the high school senior team. She has had 
offers from college soccer scoutsi Frances visited Helen Dolan in 
March, for whom the "winter was a real endurance test" and she hopes 
for warmer weather and to get out on her electric scooter again. Present 
at the Alumni Mass and Luncheon on April 16th were Agnes 
McNamara, Ruth Whitbread and Frances McL. Reilly. Agnes still 
works part time for Rockville Center Diocese Chancery. Ruth keeps 
busy with family events of brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews. 
Ellen O'Toole Heckman"cringes when she receives mail addressed to

co-chairman of this group is Marie Nolan Haffey '48. Kathryn 
Holmborg Schuster is going to Florida in May with her sister where 
the wives will enjoy the pool and bridge and the husbands will play

of where they now live. Kay thanks her Guardian Angel in eluding a 
car-jacking recently. She was able to quickly lock her door, start up her 
car and back out and away. Jean O'Reilly Stone is glad that the golf 
season has started. Although a "duffer" she finds it good fun and 
exercise. Last year, she and a friend enjoyed a Mediterranean Cruise 
and in August will go on a cruise to Alaska. Jean's two sons live in 
Connecticut, one in Greenwich and one in Darien. Another son is still on 
Long Island and daughter Debbie and family are near Wilmington, 
Delaware. Jean has eight grandchildren. Her oldest granddaughter was 
married last summer, and the youngest, a boy, is just a year old. 
Eleanor Fanelle was "confined to quarters" most of the winter and 
doesn't want to even think of ice and snow for years to come. Grace 
Coscia wrote to Eleanor to say that she is coming up from Brazil in 
May, a month earlier than usual. Let's hear from our '38ers who have 
not responded to our most persuasive appeals.

her usual optimism says that all the family china and crystal that were 
blown across the room can be replaced. During the three months

Only a handful of members of '48 attended the Spring Luncheon at the 
Garden City Hotel, but those who came enjoyed a day of pleasant 
chatter. Marge LoCurto Governale told us of an alumni gathering at 
the home of Ellen Farrell '70. It could be the start of an alumni group 
in Manhasset. Marge's son, Paul, was married last September and now 
lives at Bay Bridge in Bayside. Marge is associated with Kappole Realty 
if anyone is looking for a home in the Manhasset area. Kathryn 
Driscoll Reggio and Bob have retired from teaching and now enjoy 
the American dream of traveling, seeing Broadway shows, visiting 
museums and exhibits. Bob and Kathryn have ten wonderful 
grandchildren who keep their grandparents happy and occupied with 
their many activities and teams - as well as First Communions, 
graduations and birthdays. Elizabeth Egan and Catherine Quinn 
enjoyed an afternoon of reminiscing. Nora Mclnerney Keenan has 
moved to Belle Harbor and is enjoying her new home. Mary Hoffman 
Sheppard also enjoyed the afternoon. Her husband. Bob, is still active 
as an announcer of various sports games. Bernadette Cassidy 

Fitzpatrick is enjoying a banner year of weddings. Daughter, Megan, 
was married in October, Deidre will be married in June and Dennis in 
July. Agnes Whelan McMonagle recently enjoyed a trip to Italy with a 
group from her parish. She visited many cities and towns including 
Sotto il Monte, birthplace and home of Pope John XXIII. The highlight 
of the trip was an audience with Pope John Paul II, and an opportunity 
to shake his hand and share a few words. Please let us hear from you.

While Eileen Mahoney Hoban was in Florida last February, Pat 
Doherty Singleton and Anne Churchill Hanley came to stay with 
her for the first week of her sojourn: they had a good time and lots of 
laughs. Pat had been very sick during the early winter but is totally 
mended now and will be returning to her job in May. While she was 
recuperating, she was able to spend two weeks with her sister Joan in 
Arizona. Neither she nor Ann Hanley have retired yet, despite Eileen's 
telling them that it is all that it's cracked up to be! Ann Hanlay's 
daughter, Kathleen, was married on a terrible Saturday in December. 
Anne Rettig Nawojchik and Eileen Hoban braved the elements and 
had a great time. Anne and her husband, Kazmir, then went to Florida 
to stay the last few days of February with Eileen. They were glad to be 
away from the terrible weather back north. Anne's daughter, Nancy, 
will be back in New York soon, having worked for the past two years in 
London. Daughter, Mary Anne, is a teacher in the NYC school system 
and juggles that demanding task with two adorable children. Joan 
Crane Medvecky and Eileen Hoban had dinner with the Mullen 
sisters who are graduates but not from our class. Joan's son, Michael 
will graduate from medical school soon. Her daughter, Mary Ann, works 
In the city for Jaeger. In early March there was a reception for alumni in 
Manhasset area. Eileen Mahoney Hoban and Trudy Haffey Rooney 
attended. Although they live quite near each other they seldom see on 
another. Trudy's son, Joe, was a classmate of Eileen's son, John. Joe 
and his wife now live in Seattle with their family and Trudy and 
husband, Pete, recently visited them. We extend our sympathy to 
Adelaide Balfe Hall on the death of her mother, Dorothy Balfe. Please 
remember them and all the family in your prayers. A short note from 
Inez Votta speaks of her interest in "the noble work of my beloved St. 
Joe's College." Eileen Mahoney Hoban was unable to be at the April 
16th luncheon because she was giving a bridal shower the next day. She 
was hoping for news from some who were there. "I will get on the 
phone and do some calling or send postcards to some of you to get 
news for the next issue," Eileen says. "I really wish that people would 
call me with their news as I have computer so I can store news as it 
comes to me until time to send it off."

The following lines contain the only responses received from the 
January '51 class. Jerry Hanlon Weiss mailed ten letters to classmates 
asking for news and as of April lOth had no returns. Joan McCarthy 
Dillon sent four letters and had two answers almost immediately. Both 
Marilyn Marvin Fitzpatrick and Jeanne Corbett Jamieson 
Sheehan are as busy in their retirement as they were in the classroom, 
the business world and at home raising children. In addition to her 
duties with St. Ann's Parish Council and the St. Vincent De Paul Society, 
Jeanne has become a Facilitator in their Bereavement Support Group. 
She and her husband, Ray, recently returned from an Elderhostel in 
Albuquerque and she confesses to being "hooked on golf." Jeanne's 
five sons live nearby in Rockland County, New York and she shares in 
the pleasures and laughs from Ray's nine grandchildren. Marilyn's life 
is equally busy. When her husband, Bob, retired from dentistry, 
Marilyn left a very fulfilling job as Director of Volunteer Services and 
Guest Relations at Northern Dutchess Hospital. Travel, tennis, bridge, 
fitness workouts, volunteer activities and visiting their four daughters 
and two sons and twelve grandhildren, more than fill their days. Whew, 
some "retirement!" The Fitzpatricks left snowy Hyde Park in March 
'94 for a month in sunny Florida and a happy reunion with Frank and 
Jackie Rupp Lynch. Marilyn is a Eucharistic Minister for her church 
and for the Nursing Home.

Joan Little Donoghue lives six months of the year in Surprise, 
Arizona, in a place called Happy Trails. She has taken up line dancing. 
Her husband, Jim, thinks she has really gone Western! She writes a 
column for the Nosey Coyote, a local newspaper. Joan has 14 
grandchildren ■ 11 boys and 3 girls at last count. They all had a reunion 
in Jamesport, LI, in July and children and grandchildren camped out on 
her driveway and in the backyard and in the house! Paulita Ahem 
moved on April 15th to Wantagh, NY, and will be busy getting herself 
settled, but will welcome visitors ■ with advanced notice of course. Her 
new address is 3712 Manchester Road, Wantagh, NY, 11793 - 516-785- 
2806. Elaine Smythe travelled "down under" for three weeks 
beginning October 31, 1993. She visited different areas in the vast 
continent of Australia, experiencing many different climates along the 
eastern coast, as well as in the northern areas. She especially enjoyed 
the Great Barrier Reef and Ayers Rock. The Australian cities of Sydney 
and Melbourne are well worth seeing. Next, Elaine travelled to New 
Zealand and toured the North and South Islands which are scenically 
very beautiful, especially the thermal area at Rotorua and the Fiord 
Lands at Milford Sound, and Mt. Cook, as well as the most English of 
cities, at Christ Church. Elaine Smythe, one of your class agents, says 
she wrote to five classmates but received only one reply! Pretty 
frustrating! Pat Lynch's 'Sth grandchild was born April 17, 1994. Her 
five children are married; three live in New Jersey, one in New York and 
one in Massachusetts. Since 1969 Pat has taught 1st grade in 
Immaculate Conception Elementary School in Montclair, NJ, then she 
became a Reading teacher. She retired two years ago but does 
volunteer work four mornings a week and also volunteers at Project 
Read, and at a Soup Kitchen in Newark. Her husband, Jim, retired ten 
years ago and now works as a crossing guard. He "loves the little ones" 
and "we are much blessed - as Judith Vorst says, with an ordinary life!" 
Mildred Feudtner and her friend spent three weeks in the Orient last 
Fall - Tokyo, China, Hongkong, Bangkok and Singapore. Everything was 
fantastic. In December '93, Mildred and several alumnae and husbands 
gathered at the home of Jim and Pat Kermath Lynch in Glen Ridge, 
NJ. They were Harry and Dorothy Freese Breiner, Jim and Joan 
Little Donoghue, Gerry and Pat Dennen Dunne, and Bill and Terry 
Copin Meehan. Even the first snowstorm of the '93-'94 winter that day 
didn't keep us from driving to New Jersey. Sarah Mullady, M.A. 
Fordham and a member of the Academy of Women Achievers, Director 
of the Employee Assistance Program for Champion International and a 
Loaned Executive to the Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse 
(CASA) visited the Brooklyn Campus and spoke to one of the classes on 
today's changing workplace and the problem of substance abuse. She 
commented on the excellent physical condition of the buildings as 
compared with some of the other universities where she has lectured. 
Mary Anne Nagle Hurley received the Franciscan Spirit Award in 
recognition of her achievement in impacting the student body of St. 
Francis Prep with the four Golden Links of the Franciscan Brothers. She 
and Bernard are grandparents of four. Genevieve O'Brien Pellegrino 
finished a two-year program of the Pastoral Formation Institute of the 
Rockville Center Diocese in preparation for lay leadership in the church. 
She and Lou plan a visit to Arizona in January. They have three children 
and five grandchildren. We offer our condolences Carolyn Taylor 
Anner's on the death of her husband in October 1993 and of her 
mother in April 1994. Please remember them in your prayers. Her 
daughter, Carolyn, an RN with a career change, just passed the bar and 
has begun practice in Pennsylvania where she and husband live. 
Daughter Catherine is an orthopedic nurse in Huntington where she 
lives with her husband and three children. Carolyn's son, Robert, is a 
chef with a magic touch. Phil and Marion Murtha Munisteri have two 
grandchildren. They plan to visit a son in Australia this coming winter.

DeMares O'Connell Pleat and her husband are enjoying retirement in 
Boynton Beach, Florida. They have taken up bridge and golf. Last year 
they enjoyed a trip to eastern Europe and fell in love with Prague. Their 
cruise on the S.S. Mozart down the Danube was memorable. DeMares 
is anxious to visit Alice Fraser Devereux who is her neighbor in Lake 
Worth, FL. Alice, Helen McGrover Burns and Maureen Dougherty 
Fraser had a wonderful reunion at Alice's son Larry's wedding in San 
Francisco. We toured Muir Woods and Mendocino following the 
wedding. The Fraser family had a nostalgic visit to Brooklyn in April. 


Maureen's youngest son, Richard, was married at St. Charles Borromeo 
Church in Brooklyn Heights (Msgr. Diviney's church), and they followed 
a bagpiper to the Brooklyn Club on Remsen Street, for the reception. 
Mary Bolton Zopf is enjoying her retirement. She is volunteering at 
the Planting Fields Arboretum in Oyster Bay, LI. Our deepest sympathy 
is extended to Jane Chamberlain O'Hara's family. We will all miss 
her wit and wisdom.

After traveling through heavy rain, five members of the Class of '55 
spent an enjoyable Saturday at the luncheon in Garden City, catching 
up on news and meeting friends we haven't seen in quite a while. Pat 
McGovern was bursting with enthusiasm over her retirement to 
Florida. She brought pictures of her lovely home and stories about her 
experiences on stage with the Theater Group to which she belongs. 
They travel around raising money for parishes in the St. Augustine 
Diocese. We were happy to see Teen Ryan Mulholland, her sister and 
her mother Marita Rockefeller Ryan '26, who has always been so 
loyal to the college. Marie-Therese Pomares Dally brought us up to 
date on her family and her travels. She particularly enjoyed her visit to 
Belgium where she fell in love with Brussels. Eleanor Tyszka Shaw 
reports a new grandchild, Paul Joseph Rochelle, born to Valerie and 
Randy on February 21st. Sister Margaret Buckley as usual keeps us 
informed of life at St. Joe's today as compared to what it was when we 
were students - which does not seem so long ago. We were happy to 
see so many friends from the class of '54 who were celebrating their 
40th Anniversary. Next year it will be us celebrating. Please keep this In 
mind. If you have any ideas for a reunion, please get in touch with me.

This past winter, Danny, son of Jackie Taaffe Coleman and Don, was 
married. Jackie and Don also welcomed their seventh grandchild. The 
proud mom is Kathleen, their youngest daughter. Eileen Hale Peters'

Mary boasts of being a grandmother of two. Eileen McGuire 
Esposito is finishing her fifteenth year of teaching fourth grade at St. 
Anne's in Staten Island. "Sorry I have no weddings or grandchildren to 
report but I keep hoping," she writes. Ed is enjoying retirement and

Jersey and two on Staten Island. It was a cold and windy day in 
December when Mickey Burke Eldon, Anne Porter Molanphy and 
Ann Bauch blew down Fifth Avenue while viewing the Christmas 
decorations. They met Joan Reardon Dillon, Kay McMullen 
Schaefer and Lucille Waters Granfort for lunch and had an 
enjoyable afternoon. During the Easter vacation, Terry McManus 
McQuaid was in the New York area and had lunch with Carolyn Black 
Sedacca and Joan Reardon Dillon. Terry is the proud grandmother 
of Cole, and she and her husband Gene recently moved from Ohio to 
Michigan. While Terry was vacationing in New York in April, Ann 
Bauch was traveling in Switzerland and Northern Italy with Sister 
Joan Ryan and other alums. After all the snow we had this winter, 
everyone on the trip laughed when we had snow showers several days 
in Switzerland. In spite of the white confetti, it was a fabulous trip! Ann 
is looking forward to June when once again she will travel with Alums 
to Greece and Turkey.

Therapeutic Recreation major is doing an internship at Nassau Medical 
Center this summer. Richard graduated from SUNY Albany and works

taught first grade in South Jamaica and resumed this after thirteen 
years at home with the children. I was delighted to see Joan Bambach 
McCann when she and her daughter, Kathleen, a high school junior, 
visited SJC as one of several on Kathleen's college list. Kathleen went

daughter #2 in October. Afterwards, she and Don have promised to visit 
friends "all over." We hope that includes Barbara Frohnhofer 
Feldmann, Ada Tracey Stankard, Lynn Sorensen Thornton and 
Jean Ryan Driscoll!! It is with real sadness that I report the untimely 
death of Jack McCabe, husband of SueAnn Glenn McCabe, in 
December 1993. This sad news did not make it in time for our Winter 
1994 Alumnagram report. SueAnn and the four McCabe children are 
doing very well but would be glad to hear from friends and 
acquaintances. Hopefully, SueAnn will visit me, Barbara Feldmann, 
during the coming months. Mary McLoughlin Regan and Rosemary 
Reilly Pfaffle plan to come to Maryland during the same visit. Do write 
to SueAnn if you have the time. She still lives in Huntington, Long

Macchiarola lost a golden opportunity to chat with old friends and 
catch up on class news. However, she recently received a note from 
Judy regarding her post-graduate course at Dowling College on new 
trends in Special Education. She also reported the sad news that her 
mother, Edna M. Perry, passed away peacefully last January. Please 
remember them in your prayers. Ginny O'Rourke McLaughlin and 
Fran Sullivan Brennan spent a delightful afternoon together. Ginny 
also spent a week in London in February visiting with her daughter, 
Katie, a junior at SUNY Oswego, who finished four months study in 
London and who then was off to tour major cities of Europe for two 
months. A highlight was a visit with her cousin in Dublin. Ginny's son,

One hundred and eighteen young women graduated thirty years ago; 
the Class of '64. I remember the names but who were all those plump 
(except for two or three) and prosperous matrons assembled for their 
thirtieth reunion at the Garden City Hotel? I enjoyed both reunions: a 
mini one that took place at Carmine's on the upper west side early in 
April with Mary Hilgeman, Mary Noberini, Mary Morgan, Ginny 
Humes, Peg Harrington, Rosemary Mayer and me, Pat Kushner, 
and the formal one on April 16th. At the hotel reunion Sister George 
Aquin pointed out again that our class was ever contrary and never did 
the expected. She was none- the-less glad to see that 16 of us had come 
to the reunion (although due to a tornado warning, three did not show 
up). Mary Morgan, who insisted that I go, and who, by the way is both 
slim and exceptionally stylish, and a delightful person, did not herself 
show up. Madalene Comisky, who did show up, and who despite the 
name claims to be Italian, was a most delightful luncheon partner and 
made up for Mary's absence. Madalene claimed right to the end that 
Fran Maglione was going to show up. But I want to set the record 
straight; Fran Maglione never showed up. It was quite delightful to see 
how smart and perky this group of twelve women were: Joan Sirica, 
Mary Phelan, Helen Flynn, Judy Chiesa, Mary Oolan, Mary Jane 
Graetzer, Bobbi Lesnik, Carole Marciszyn, Connie D'Andrea, 
Kathy Meyer, Pat Gisavage, Liz Hill. Joan who looked stunning, 
spoke of yet another mini reunion featuring champagne, pizza and 
pastry at Irene Pokowitz' house, last year. One final comment: if 
anyone has a current address for Adele Tozzi, or Marge Penny, 
please let me know. Maureen Ryan Mulcahy reports that 1993 was a

Letter from the Editor 

As responsibility for Alumnagram passes into 
my hands, 1 can't help but look back on the 
accomplishments of Mary Elizabeth Parrell 
'35. I'd like to take this opportunity to personally 
thank her for many years of enjoyable reading. 

All of us at the Alumni Office are working to 
continue the standard of excellence that has been 
brought to you by those who came before us. We are 
anxious to hear from our readers. Please let us know 
your opinions on what we are doing and what you 
would like to see us do. 

Research has shown that the most widely read 
section in every alumni magazine is Class Notes. Your 
class agents work extremely hard to compile this 
information. Please assist them and send a note 
about yourself or a classmate. If your class does not 
have an agent or if you would be interested in helping 
the present agents, please volunteer by calling the 
Alumni Office. 

If you are unable to become a class agent, there 
are other ways you can serve your Alumni 
Association. Volunteers are needed to organize 
geographic alumni receptions. This has become one 
of our most successful new projects. Each reception 
needs a coordinator to choose a location and accept 
responses. The alumni office takes care of the 
mailings and follow-up phone calls. We are presently 
organizing spring receptions in Connecticut and 
Massachusetts. Please let us hear from you if you 
would like us to visit your area. How about hearing 
from our alumni in California! 

Another project that needs volunteers is our First

SJC Graduates 
Make Their Mark in the Health Field 

Over the years, SJC has developed a strong 
presence in the health professions. Science 
majors from both canipuses have gone on to 
medical schools while many nurses from General 
Studies are accepted to graduate programs across the 

Our General Studies Nursing Program is 
growing rapidly in both Brooklyn and Patchogue. 
The following are but a few alumni who are working 
and studying in the medical field. We would enjoy 
hearing from others who are also making their con- 
tributions in various medical professions. Please let 
us hear from you. 

The nursing profession has enjoyed a tremen- 
dous rebirth in the last several years. The demand for 
nurses has increased and with this, so has the need 
for more education. St. Joseph's College responded 
to this need by establishing a Nursing Program in the 
Division of General Studies, in 1987. This year, the 
program is proud to have over two hundred stu- 
dents. Audrey Conley, director of the program since 
1986, has watched it grow and expand in many ways, 
and the increase in enrollment is proof of this growth. 
She says, "Perhaps the most attractive part of the pro- 
gram is the care and individual attention paid to each 
student. In GS, the students are counseled and guid- 
ed on the right paths. For the nursing students, this 
is important, so that they can follow a curriculum that 
will broaden their education and knowledge." Ask 
any students at SJC - whether in GS or Arts and 
Sciences, and they will all tell you the same thing - the 
faculty at SJC cannot be beat!!! Through the dedica- 
tion and determination of the faculty, the students are 
motivated to achieve and succeed. 

Kevin McKenna, a 1990 graduate of the Division, 
received his BS in Health Administration. Currently 
the Administrative Nursing Coordinator at 
Maimonides Medical Center, his 
major area of concentration has 
always been mental health. 
Kevin is a native of Monaghan, 
Ireland, where he was a psychi- 
atric nurse, and is now a gradu- 
ate psychology student at Long 
Island University. 

Kevin came to GS to get his BS 
in health administration. "The 
energy and enthusiasm of the 
faculty and especially Tom Travis, really inspired 
me," says Kevin. 

Kevin lives in Sunset Park with his wife, 
Mary, also a nurse at Maimonides in the Intensive 

Care Unit. They have one son, Eoin, and are mem- 
bers of St. Catherine of Alexandria parish. They 
enjoy going to the theater, playing tennis, and are 
members of The American Irish Nursing Association 

In 1993, Mary Varkony graduated with a BSN from 
General Studies. Presently, she is the Nursing Unit 
Director of the Intensive 
Care Unit at St. John's 
Hospital. Mary hopes to 
graduate from Columbia 
University's School of 
Nursing in the Spring of 
1996, as a clinical nurse 
specialist with a track in 
critical care nursing. She 
lives with her husband, 
John, in Woodhaven, 
Queens, and is a member 
of St. Thomas the Apostle 
parish. When she's not busy studying or working, 
she enjoys traveling, boating and fishing. 

Mary feels nursing is a true vocation. "You 
have to really want to be a nurse - something inside 
of you has to want to be a nurse, because nursing is 
in every aspect of your life. I enjoy the position that 
I'm in right now, because I can initiate change and 
watch things grow. I'm glad I had the opportunity to 
study at GS." 

Diane Drake, another 93 grad- 
uate from GS, feels strongly 
about the modern role of nurses. 
"In these challenging times in the 
health field, I feel it is imperative 
that we become the best nurses 
we can be. My experience at SJC 
has helped me to integrate and 
_ deal with the ethical and moral 

issues that need to be addressed by the nurse in 

today's world." 

A staff nurse at Methodist Hospital in Brooklyn, 

Diane is enrolled in Columbia University's School of 

Nursing, and hopes to finish in the Summer of 1997. 

She lives in Marine Park with her son, David, and 

daughter, Rosemarie. 

But not all graduates remain in the New York area. 
Cathleen McCabe Hohner, a 1985 Suffolk GS gradu- 
ate, has moved on to make her mark in South 
Carolina. Living with her husband, Jeffrey, and two 
young daughters, Marissa and Katya, Cathleen was 
recently named Assistant Dean of Undergraduate 
Education at the Charlotte campus of Pfieffer i 

College. Ms. Hohner's responsibilities include being 
the chief aciministrator of the undergraduate pro- 
grams offered at Pfieffer , as well as serving on the 
faculty in the undergraduate health care management 
program and as an admissions counselor. 

Ms. Hohner graduated as salutatorian with a 
degree in health administration, and has certification 
in management, leadership, and resource manage- 
ment, and nursing management. In addition to her 
job at Pfieffer, Cathleen is also a certified lactation 
consultant, and helps promote breast-feeding. 

From the College of Arts 
and Sciences, three recent 
graduates stand out because 
of their accomplishnients. Dr. 
Zakirul Sabry, from the class 
of 1989, is in the second year 
of his internship /residency in 
surgery at St. Vincent's 
Hospital. "Zaki" as he was 
affectionately known to his 
classmates, is originally from Bangladesh. At SJC, he 
was known for his ability to communicate effectively 
and respond to each new experience with integrity 
and balance. 

As an undergraduate, Zaki gained personal 
experience in the medical field through volunteer 
work in the emergency room at Maimonides 
Hospital. His leadership ability was evident in the 
fact that he was elected president of the Science Club; 
he organized the annual blood drive as well as field 
trips to places of scientific interest. Senior thesis 
research in biochemistry at City College of New York 
provicied Zaki with a valuable opportunity to broad- 
en his scientific abilities and successfully complete 
the baccalaureate degree in chemistry. 

After two years at St. George's University School 
of Medicine in Grenada, Zaki transferred to the New 
York Medical College at Valhalla; he earned his 
degree in June, 1993. Although it takes years to 
become a qualified surgeon. Dr. Zakirul Sabry has the 
motivation and strength to meet this challenge with 
equanimity and enthusiasm. 

Dr. Lisa Kump, also a 
graduate of 89, is currently 
at New York Hospital, 
Cornell Medical Center, 
where she is in the second 
year of internship /residency 
in Obstetrics/Gynecology. 
Lisa, a Presidential 

Scholarship student at SJC, 
is an outstanding model for 
those who must combine a 

busy professional schedule with a number of other 

At SJC, Lisa combined a major in chemistry with 
involvement in a number of activities which indicate 
her versatility and dedication to the service of others. 
She spent many hours tutoring her peers and also 
served the science faculty as a laboratory assistant in 
college courses as well as in a Saturday program for 
secondary students. 

Lisa was accepted into the Health Science 
Center of the State University in Brooklyn (formerly 
Downstate Medical College). Before her graduation 
in June, 1993, Dr. Kump earned honors in obstet- 
rics/gynecology and was accepted into this area of 
medicine at New York Hospital. Lisa returns to St. 
Joseph's College at times when she can be of assis- 
tance to undergraduates who are inspired to pursue 
careers in medicine. 

Dr. Joseph Portoreiko, class of 89, is currently 
pursuing a rotating internship in Osteopathic 
Medicine at Brookdale Hospital Medical Center. 

He combined the chal- 
lenges of a baccaluareate 
degree in chemistry with 
his extensive experience in 
the Ridgewood Volunteer 
.Ambulance Corps. 

A summer research fel- 
lowship at the Lovelace 
Biomedical and 

Environmental Research 
Institute in Albuquerque, 
New Mexico, provided Joe 
with the basis for a note- 
worthy senior thesis in biochemistry. His outstand- 
ing record during his first year at the New York 
College of Osteopathic Medicine resulted in a fellow- 
ship award covering the remainder of his medical

Tom MacVenn 

About a year ago, my 
brother Ted invited 
me to join him and 
his family on a trip to 
Lunevilie, France. The occasion 
was a reunion of the 324th 
Fighter Group to commemorate 
the French Liberation. I invited 
Claire MacVenn Dillon '51 to 

join us. Her brother Tom, who 
had been killed in France during 
the war, had been buried in 
E'pinal for four years before 
being returned to the United 
States. Claire always wanted to 
know where Tom had died. 

On March 3rd of this year my 
brother passed away. 1 was now 
totally determined to return to 
France for him and to attend his 
reunion. Claire and I began a 
journey for our brothers; for the 
one who returned from the war 
to enjoy a full and happy life and 
for the one who died in France at 
the age of nineteen. 

The French people showed 
their appreciation to their libera- 
tors with moving celebrations 
and ceremonies. For me, it was 
a touching recall of names and 
places that Ted wrote about in 
his letters and reminisced about 
after his return. For Claire, the

goal was E'pinal. Upon arrival 
and after investigation, we 
learned that Tom was killed on 
the battlefield in Moselle Valley, 
with the 7th Army. Tom died 
only an hour away from where 

Theodore S. Kozlowski 

my brother Ted was operating 
with the "324th". 

Claire and 1 know each other 
for forty years. We shared col- 
lege, our professions, births of 
children and grandchildren. ..and 
now this. The trip to France was 
a unique experience for both of 
us. Claire now knows where 
Tom died. There is finally a clo- 
sure of her loss. 

For me, 1 fulfilled Ted's dream 
and had the opportunity to see a 
memorial to my brother in the 
church of St. Jacques in 
Lunevilie. it reads, "Theodore S. 
Kozlowski, who loved God, his 
country, his family and his bud- 
dies of the '324th'."

About ten years ago, after a long and 
proud history, St. Joseph's College 
women's basketball team ceased to 
exist. Gradually, interest had diminished 
until it was too difficult to field a team. 

In keeping with the College's strong 
commitment to athletic programs, major ren- 
ovation of the Brooklyn athletic facilities has 
just been completed. The men's and wom- 
en's locker rooms have been refurbished 
and a new gym floor has been installed... 
exercise equipment has been brought into 
the locker room and new equipment has 
been added. The facilities are ready for 
action. ..and the women are ready to play. 

Recently, a determined group of young 
women went to the administration and 
convinced them to bring back the women's 
basketball program. We applaud this effort 
to bring back the women's team and we 
wish them every success. 

Thomas Flahive has been named as the 
women's coach. A 1975 graduate of the 
College, he was captain of the first men's 
basketball team. His wife, Virginia 
McCullough Flahive, together with her two 
sisters, Betty McCullough '74, and Eileen 
McCullough Wihiborg '77, played on SJC 
teams in the '70s. Our '95 team is playing a 
13 game schedule with teams such as 
College of New Rochelle, SUNY, Old 
Westbury, Yeshiva and Stevens Institute of 
Technology. We invite you to watch our new 
team in action at Bishop McLoughlin High 
School on February 4, 1995, at 1:00 pm, 
where they will take on Stevens Tech. For 
further information, call (718) 636-6800. 

We made every effort to list the names of 
all our SJC Varsity captains. Please let us 
hear from you if you can help us complete 
our list.

"We knew we were in the presence of a saint." 
Those are the words of Sister Alice of Rosary 
Hill, Hawthorne, in describing the scene of 
Kathryn Fry Lynch's last moments as the sis- 
ters and clergy prayed at her bedside. Kay died 
on August 23rd and was buried from Our Lady 
of Angels, in Bay Ridge. Fr. Calder celebrated 
the Mass. My son, Fr. Keith Fennessy, was 
honored to be a concelebrant at the Mass. 
Mary Whelan Phelan. her husband Buddy 
and I attended. A beautiful party for the 
Golden Alumni on September 18th was attend- 
ed by Marie Furey Boyce, Anne McCormack 
Fennessy and Mary Whelan Phelan. Having 
students as hosts and hostesses made the event 
so gracious and enjoyable. It was a pleasure to 
see Genevieve Archipoli Kelly, Zita Hawkins 
Stoddard and Margaret Reilly Parker. We 
were delighted to be invited by Helen 
Caughlan to her beautiful home on September 
21st for a Mass in memory of our deceased 
members. The Mass was celebrated by Helen's 
son Fr. John Worthley. Those of '32 who 
attended were: Claire Smith, Gertrude Unser, 
Mary Whelan Phelan and Anne McCormack 
Fennessy. Special guests, also St. Joseph's 
Alumnae, Marguerite Doyle Ticho '30, 
Margaret Ferry Healy '31, Mary Elizabeth 
McLoughlin Farrell '35 and Marjorie Parker 
Smith '37. We are much indebted to Mary 
Elizabeth for her many years of devotion and 
service as Director of Alumni Relations. We 
also thank Marjorie Parker Smith for that 

beautiful profile of Irene Parker Parks, her 
sister. We thank Margaret Kenny for her 
unconditional love and generosity. Marge has 
had a long tedious health problem but is now 
looking forward to a positive conclusion. We 
send her our heartfelt sympathy on the death of 
her sister. Rose Ann McElivain. Frances 
Diekert Rebele has had a bad year healthwise. 
Margaret Lenhy Hinchey wrote her regrets: 
"The trip is long, my car is old, and so am I". 
Gladys Worthley was hoping to come up from 
Maryland to be present at her nephew's Mass 
but the venture was complicated. Another loyal 
attendant, Mary White Kearney, was unable 
to join us because of the illness of her husband 
John. We missed Mildred Hines Ryan who 
was unable to come. In a telephone call 
Christine Barton explained that it is difficult 
for her to get out much. She spoke of her 
enduring friendship with Madeline Kendall 
Friel. Madeline said she would attend Mass on 
September 21st and would remember all our 
deceased members. She particularly mentioned 
Kay Frey Lynch. Madeline's son Michael is 
Associate Dean of the University of Florida at 
Gainesville and directs the Master's Program in 
Taxation Law. Her grandson, 1 1 year old 
Jonathan, had a part in a local production of 
"The Sound of Music". But, most gratifying to 
Madeline was the awarding of two scholarships 
in her late husband's memory at Western 
Connecticut State University. John Friel was 
deeply involved in education and assistance 
with scholarship. His many friends resolved to 
honor him with these scholarships. We were 
glad to hear that Kathlyn Ansbro Wurts has 
regained her strength after serious heart 
surgery. She and her husband Ed are planning 
a trip to California to spend Christmas with 
their family. On a cheerful note, we still have a 
world traveler in our midst: Gertrude Unser is 
in Europe on an opera tour. The Fall Luncheon 
at the Hudson River Club on October 29th was 
a gala. 

Anne McCormack Fennessy, 2 Horatio Street,

The group had its semi-annual luncheon at La 
Grange on October 17th. Rita Bopp 
Mahoney's grandson graduated from Mt. St. 
Mary's Emmitsburg and her granddaughter has 
been accepted in the Honors Program at the 
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. 
Elizabeth Schaefer Dalton announced her 
granddaughter Mary's engagement. Elizabeth is 
an extra-ordinary minister. Bobbie Owens 
Miller is still singing and dancing in reviews 
and active in the Catholic Daughters. She is 
enjoying the spacious addition to her son's 
home and the pleasure of watching his little 
ones mature. Evelyn Harris Martin's daugh- 
ter. Dr. Evelyn Martin '66, shepherded her to 
the luncheon and we had the pleasure of renew- 
ing her acquaintance. Joe Ford Scanlan joy- 
fully announced her grandson had just entered 

the University of West Virginia. She is expect- 
ing to move to Pennsylvania soon. Geraldine 
Young Murphy is awaiting the addition of two 
new members to her clan. Irene Costarino 
Sarro, Rose Brown Clarke, G. Y. Murphy 
and 1 were the only representatives of our class 
at the Seniors reception. I would appreciate it if 
the members of '33 would update addresses and 
let us know how they are persevering.

The class of '34 can be proud of its contribution 
to the traditional class gift from the jubilee 
class. One of the alumni, in addition, to her 
own personal gift, gave a donation in memory 
of Dorothy Dempsey Savarese and a second in 
honor of Sister M. Doniitilla. To our disap- 
pointment, none of the nuns who had been our 
classmates were at the 60th jubilee luncheon: 
Sr. Rita Doherty is ill at Maryknoll Residential 
Community. Sr. M. Doniitilla (Mary Dirig ) 
writes from her Benedictine Convent in St. 
Louis of the joy her vocation has brought her: 
spending hours of adoration before the Blessed 
Sacrament. Vivienne Kelly Devlin ran into 
"Mickey" Kiernan in Smyrna Beach, FL. She 
spent last Christmas in Madrid where her son- 
in-law married to her youngest daughter is post-

sor at St. Joseph's College in Patchogue. Her 
oldest son-in-law (a retired Army officer) has

at the University of Delaware and her youngest 
grandchild is about a year old. Another grand- 
child was expected in September, bringing the 
total to nine. Margaret Langdon McDermott

school worker; a school teacher; and a parale- 
gal. She has seven grandchildren, one of

Rochester. One of her twins reports that 
Katherine Reilly McHugh's husband died 
four years ago and that Katherine herself is 
now living in a nursing home and is suffering 
from Alzheimer's. Mary McLernon Loughlin 
has spent weeks in a Long Island Hospital hav- 

ing a hip replacement. She is now home and

We |oin in prayer, with all who knew him, for a 
much beloved Msgr. FitzGibbon who died in 
September. He was a dedicated professor and a 
gentle man Rita Wood Rague, who lives in 
Delray Beach, FL near where Msgr. FitzGibbon

Alumni have made contributions to the field of 
law in many ways. These are but a few of our 
many graduates who have made their mark in 
the legal profession. 

For the last five years, Katharine McKenna Black 
has practiced law at her own firm in Carbondale, 
Illinois, about 300 miles south of Chicago. 

After receiving her BA in 
English from St. Joseph's 
College in 1957, Katherine con- 
tinued her education at 
Southern Illinois University, 
where she was granted an MS in 
speech pathology in 1972. Her 
interest in studying law was a 
result of her position at the 
Guardianship and Advocacy 
Commission where she repre- 
sented parents with disabled 
children. Dissatisfied that she 
could not take her cases to 

court, she decided to become a lawyer. She received 
her Juris Doctor from Southern Illinois University in 
1986. While in law school, Katherine received the John 
Rendleman Award and the Lincoln's Inn Award, given 
for service and leadership to the Southern Illinois 
University School of Law. Since receiving her degree 
she has successfully represented clients at administra- 
tive hearings in federal courts and in the Court of 

Presently a member of the Association for Persons with 
Severe Handicaps, the Council for Exceptional Children 
and the Learning Disabilities Association, Katherine 
says that "St. Joseph's allowed me to explore my capa- 

Katherine is married to George W. Black and has three 
children; Kathleen Anne, 31 Mary Cecilia, 30 and 
James Joseph, 28. She is a member of St. Francis 
Xavier parish and spends her free time reading and 
enjoying spectator sports. 

In 1976, John McGuire grad- 
uated from St. Joseph's y 
College with a major in I 
English. While at the College ■■_ 
he was President of the P- 
Undergraduate Association; he 
also spent a great deal of time 
on the basketball court. 
During his senior year he was 
selected for Who's Who 
Among Students from 
American Colleges and 

After graduating from New York Law School in 1980, 
Jack accepted a position at the Brooklyn District 
Attorney's Office in the Sex Crimes Bureau. In 1983, he 
joined E.F. Hutton Company in the General Counsel's 
office where he was involved in general brokerage liti- 
gation. In 1986, Jack joined Oppenheimer & Co. Inc., 
where today he is a Managing Director and Associate 
General Counsel. He supervises attorneys handling liti- 
gation, arbitration and regulatory matters while provid- 
ing advisory and counseling services to sales, compli- 
ance and senior management. Jack believes that his 
English major from SJC was invaluable in preparing 
him to express himself in writing to other professionals. 

Jack is married to Connie Gildea '77. They live in West 
Brighton, Staten Island, with their two 
children;,Timothy, 11, and Katherine, 9, and are mem- 
bers of St. Teresa's parish. 

Jack can still be found on the basketball court at SJC, 
enjoying old friends on Alumni Nite. He says his chil- 
dren think it's funny to see Dad trying to play basket- 

Don't forget the deadline for the Winter '96

Rosemarie DeRogatis '68 
is a self-employed attor- 
ney who lives on the 
Upper West Side of 
Manhattan with her husband, 
Louis Montello. They are 
members of Holy Trinity 
parish. After graduation from 
SJC she received her MS in 
early childhood education 
from Brooklyn College. She 
then went on to earn a certifi- 
cate in Administration and 
Supervision of Elementary 
Schools from Richmond College. 

When Rosemarie began to think about studying law, 
many of her friends and relatives tried to dissuade her 
with the argument that there were too many lawyers. 
Feeling that she would acquire knowledge in an area 
that was unknown to her, she says, "That decision has 
resulted in a life blessed with happiness and fulfillment." 
She feels her dedication to study, discipline and 
achievement, nurtured at St. Joseph's, found its fruition 
in law school and in her legal practice. Her practice 
encompasses real estate, corporate estate and contract 
law. She has been honored as a recipient of the 
American Jurisprudence Award in estate taxation and 

In 1984, Theresa Yard 
graduated from SJC with 
a major in history. While 
at the College, she was 
President of both the 
Political Affairs Club and the 
Phi Mu Chapter of Phi Alpha 
Beta; she was also an active 
member of the yearbook 
staff. Chapel Players and the 
photography club. 

After graduation, Theresa attended Fordham University 
School of Law, where she received a Medal for 
Constitutional Law and was listed in Who's Who 
Among American Women. While at Fordham she 
developed interests in commercial litigation, antitrust 
law and legal publishing. Theresa wrote an article 
which won her a position on the staff of the Fordham 
International Law Journal, and was later elected to an 
editorial position on the journal. 

In 1985 and 1986, Theresa interned at the New York 
City Fire Department, Hertz Corporation, and Lord, Day 
& Lord, where she was involved in researching legisla- 
tion, case law and drafting memoranda. In 1987, while 
studying for her bar exam, she worked as an 
Administrative Assistant to the Vice President of the 
International Bar Association, reviewing articles sub- 
mitted for publication in the International Business 
Lawyer. After graduating from law school, she joined 
the staff of Kelley Drye & Warren as an Associate, 
where she was a commercial litigator. After seven 
years at Kelley Drye & Warren, she decided to pursue 
her professional interest in legal publishing, which 
would allow her to spend more time with her children. 
Today, Theresa is employed by West Publishing Co. as 
an Acquisitions Editor. Her responsibilities include 
developing new legal treatises on New York law; select- 
ing and recruiting authors to write books; editing 
books; and marketing books in the legal community. 
She believes that the small classes at SJC prepared her 
for the socratic method utilized in law school, which 
gave her added confidence. 

Theresa lives in Massapequa, Long Island, with her two 
children; Blake, 5, and Erica, 2, where they are mem- 
bers of St. Rose of Lima parish. Her interests include 
matrimonial law and photography. She is a member of 
the New York State, New York County, and American 
Bar Associations. She is also admitted to practice law 
in the state, federal and U.S. Supreme Court. 


Sister Mary Joel 
Acerno C.S.J. '48 
took an interesting 
route to thie field of law. 
She began her career as a 
teacher in 1950 at St. 
Benedict Joseph Labre 
Elementary School. In 
1960, she joined the faculty 
at St. Joseph's College as a 
math instructor. She 
remained at the College 
until 1975 when she 
became Principal of St. 
Clare's Elementary School. 
After three years there, Sister Mary Joel moved on to 
become Principal of Holy Child of Jesus. After more 
than forty years in education, she felt it was time to 
change her ministry. 

After graduating 
from the Division 
of General Studies 
in 1989 with a degree in 
Management of Human 
Resources, LeRoy 

Robinson received his 
Juris Doctor from the 
Seton Hall School of Law 
in 1993. 

LeRoy became an intern 

with the City of New York 

at the HRA's Office of 

Legal Affairs, where he had the opportunity to develop 

his legal writing skills. Today, LeRoy combines careers 

with the Yonkers Fire Department and as an associate 

with Levy and Associates on Wall Street in Mew York 


In her work as a Eucharistic Minister, Sister was a regu- 
lar visitor to a woman who had a conservator. This 
attorney, when inquiring about her client's well-being, 
sparked Sister's interest in the law profession. She 
began a paralegal program at Queens College and 
received her certificate in 1993. 

Sister Mary Joel is presently working for Joseph Brintle, 
doing legal research in the areas of immigration, fore- 
closure and day-care. 

Sister says that "SJC was invaluable in preparing me for 
legal work by giving me a desire to continue learning, 
particularly when there was satisfaction and fulfillment 
in what was being taught." 

Sister Mary Joel is presently living in Flushing and is a 
member of Holy Family parish. 

LeRoy has been a firefighter since 1982 and joined Levy 
and Associates in 1993. His duties there include legal 
work on medical malpractice, insurance defense and 
civil litigation cases. 

LeRoy is proud of the excellent education he received at 
SJC. He feels strongly that his introduction to an eclec- 
tic mixture of personalities at SJC has prepared him for 
the daily contact with clients and adversaries. LeRoy 
Robinson says, "The Brooklyn Campus professors took 
a personal interest in my development from the first day 
on campus until my graduation. My counselors and the 
office support staff were there for me at every turn. For 
me, St. Joseph's set the academic standards I have 
come to expect from all other institutions of higher 

LeRoy Robinson lives in Harlem with his wife, Pat Mason 
Robinson '89, and their two-year-old son, Agene Daniel.

tion, representing the Suffolk County Water Authority 
as in-house counsel and managing the firm's legal 
research library. David practices law in the areas of 
trusts and estates, elder law, landlord and tenant, real 
estate and municipal law. He feels that "Professor 
David Hilgendorf was a primary inspiration to my deci- 
sion to practice law as a career. The education I 
received from the sociology/political science program 
has been invaluable in helping me to understand and 
address the needs of my clients." 

David Desmond lives in Shoreham, NY, with his wife 
and two children. They are members of St. John's 
parish in Wading River.

In Memory of 

Professor of Speech 1946-56 
Academic Dean 1956-1969 

John Baptist Hull, C.S.J. 

To generations of St. 

Joseph's College students, 

the words, "My door is 

always open," will evoke 

warm memories of Sister 

John Baptist. As 

Academic Dean, Sister 

John greeted each new 

class of freshmen with that 

message - intending to 

reassure them, and give 

them a sense that they 

had someone on their 

side. It seems that the 

image of the open door 

provides an appropriate lens through which we may 

reflect on this extraordinary woman. 

Sister John Baptist was open to life in all its beauty and 
opportunities. As a young woman, she responded whole- 
heartedly to the grace of conversion and vocation; and, 
especially in her later years, she rejoiced in recalling 
those special moments of openness to God's love. 

Throughout her life. Sister John was open hearted, and 
open handed - her ability to make friends is legendary, 
and her loyalty was exemplary. Many could speak of this 
from their own experience. Her loyalty and affection 
were expressed in the most practical way - in deeds, at 
times physically demanding ones - and in a gentle, 
patient spirit. 

Even after her retirement from full time ministry at the 
College, Sister was very active, tutoring many foreign stu- 
dents - and teaching them much more than proper pro- 
nunciation. She also embraced the myriad responsibili- 
ties of being treasurer of a large house, and managed to 
keep it balanced, as well as balancing the books! 

One of the most vivid memories of Sister John Baptist is 
of her in the second pew on the right in the "232" con- 
vent chapel. There, she was most open, to the great won- 
der and delight that she found in hours of prayer before 
the Blessed Sacrament. There, she discerned that it was 
time for her to move from the College to Maria Regina - 
which is, above all, a house of prayer. Sister John was 
attracted to her new home because here the central 
themes of her life could be lived most fully in this envi- 
ronment of prayer and loving support. Even as the col- 
lege community missed her presence in our daily lives, 
we rejoiced that she was so happy. As we bid her farewell 
again, we rejoice that she is at home, at rest, at peace. 

Eulogy by Sister George Aquin O'Connor 

In Memory of 

St. John Murphy '24 

For four years Mary has been our 
Class President. Why? simply 
because we couldn't haven't 
managed without her. She 
has directed our affairs qui- 
etly but capably, and we 
have always felt the deep- 
est trust in her leadership. 

Mary is one who inspires 
confidence naturally. She has 
a very strict sense of duty and a 
remarkable persistency in overcoming obstacles 
that interfere with its performance. Tactful, efficient, 
and dependable, she can always be relied on to 
manage big things successfully and without osten- 

Friendliness is characteristic of all Mary's words and 
acts. No one could be lonely or neglected while 
Mary is around, for she radiates kindliness and good 
fellowship, and can put the most bashful stranger at 
ease. Her constant consideration for the feelings of 
others is as beautiful as it is rare. Mary could be sar- 
castic, but she believes in thinking over a remark 
that might hurt and then not saying it. The things 
she leaves unsaid are a great indication of her power 
of self control. We could talk about Mary forever and 
not begin to do her justice, for her character is a 
mine so rich that we may never hope to exhaust its 


As Mary was then, 

so she remained 

for her life. 




Dorothy Bloodgood Kennedy 
'48, the first alumna to be 
honored at the St. Joseph's 
College Annual Dinner Dance, will 
receive the Distinguished Citizen 
Award in recognition of her civic con- 
tributions through volunteer activi- 
ties. The award will be presented at 
the Thirteenth Annual Dinner Dance, 
to be held on Friday, October 20, 
1995, at the Crest Hollow Country 
Club in Woodbury, LI. 

An English major who graduated 
cum laude, Dorothy is an inspiration 
to all those who have had the privi- 
lege to know her, work with her, or 
learn from her over the years. The 
mother of five children and grand- 
mother of ten, Dorothy is fond of say- 
ing that she has had three wonderful 
careers - wife, mother, and teacher - 
and that St. Joseph's prepared her 
perfectly for each. 

In 1949, Dorothy married her high 
school sweetheart, Bernard Kennedy. 
Once their children were older, she 
went back to school and earned a 
master's degree in secondary educa- 
tion from Hofstra University. For 
twelve years she balanced her teach- 
ing career with her responsibilities as 
mother and wife. She also found 
time, and continues to find time, to 
give back to the community. 

In addition to serving on the board 
of directors for both the American 
Irish Historical Society and the Long 
Beach Hospital Ladies Auxiliary, 
Dorothy volunteers every week at 
One More Time, a fund raising 
avenue for the hospital. 

Dorothy credits St. Joseph's College 
with having taught her some of life's 
most important lessons. "It gave us a 
marvelous sense of our own worth 
and taught us the importance of 

We hope you will join with us as we

Margaret T. McHugh '66 addressed the Class of '95 at the 
Commencement Exercises of the Brooklyn Arts and Sciences Division 

on June 2nd. 
On this same occasion she was awarded the following degree. 

The Honorary Degree 
of Doctor of Humane Letters 

In honoring Margaret T. McHugh, St. Joseph's College is paying tribute to an outstand- 
ing alumna, and a dedicated advocate for the most vulnerable among us - abused and 
battered children. As Clinical Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the New York 
CJniversity School of Medicine and Director of Adolescent Services at Bellevue Hospital, 
Dr. McHugh works tirelessly on behalf of troubled children both in the hospital clinical 
setting, and in the political arena. 

After graduating from St. Joseph's College, Margaret McHugh went to Georgetown 
University School of Medicine and earned her medical degree. While a Visiting Fellow 
in Ambulatory Pediatrics at Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons, 
Dr. McHugh received a Masters in Public Health from Columbia University, this broad 
background was a superb preparation for her life-long work of dedicated service. 

In her current position, Dr. McHugh works with medical students and young doctors, 

imparting to them her passionate concern for abused children, and sharing the unique expertise and experience she 
has gained through her own practice and professional associations. As a member of the Children's Justice Task 
Force of the Mew York State Department of Social Services, Chairperson of the Child Protective Services Training 
Institute of the Family Life Development Center at Cornell University - to name just a few of her affiliations - Dr. 
McHugh contributes to the advancement of theory and practice in this all-important area. 

Dr. McHugh has written the Official Guidelines of the State of PSew York Department of Health and Department of 
Social Services for Suspected Child Abuse and Maltreatment : and authored and co-authored a number of articles and 
abstracts dealing with this issue. She is a recognized and respected leader in the struggle to protect children from 
abusive treatment, and to provide them with appropriate medical care and emotional support systems. 

It is therefore with great respect and esteem that the Board of Trustees of St. Joseph's College, by the power vested 
in them by the Regents of the University of the State of New York, bestow on Margaret T. McHugh the degree of 

Doctor of Humane Letters

The Spring Mass and Luncheon 
provided us with spiritual, phys- 
ical and emotional nourish- 
ment. The homily by Fr. James 
Sweeney was very relevant, 
witty and touching. His words 
about his mother, his greatest 
model, were most heartwarm- 
ing. She is Virginia l-lughes 
Sweeney, who celebrated her 
Golden Anniversary. Those who 
attended from '32 were Anne 
McCormacIc Fennessy, 

Claire Smitii and Mary 
Whelan Phelan. They were 
glad to have the company of 
their close friends: Ann Dolan 
McBride, Marguerite Doyle 
Tlciio, Margaret Ferry Healy, 
Zita Hawkins Stoddart, 
Janet Prendergast Vickrey 
and Catharine Wheeler 
Smith. Helen Coughlan 
Worthley was unable to attend 
as she had to be in Connecticut 
for her grandchild's First Holy 
Communion ceremony. It was 
good to see Claire Smith back 
in the mainstream, driving and 
involved in some of her former 
activities. We also have a report 
that Kathlyn Ansbro Wurts 
has recovered from serious 
heart surgery and is enjoying 

life in Florida. By now you have 
received notification of the 
death of Gladys Worthley. 
She was buried in Holy Cross 
Cemetery in Brooklyn. Her 
nephew and godson, Fr. James 
Worthley, flew to California to 
offer a memorial Mass. We are 
also diminished by the death of 
Marie Berry who all through the 
years, was an "honorary mem- 
ber" of our class, attending 
many of our reunions as a par- 
ticular friend of Mary Whelan 
Phelan. Our sympathy to 
Mary. We mourn with our dear 
Mary White Kearney the loss 
of her husband of 53 years. 
John was a notable attorney 
involved with the Diocese of 
Brooklyn, and a former trustee 
of St. Joseph's College. 
Gertrude CJnser spent a few 
weeks in Toronto visiting 
friends. Anne Fennessy had

Laura is confined to a nursing 
home. Dick visits with her every 
day. A happy note, their daugh- 
ter, Lori, has successfully pub- 
lished two books. The new for- 
mat of Alumnagram was very 
interesting. What a pleasant

Maryann Holzderber 

Kennedy '70 at the Garden 
City luncheon. Maryann's moth- 
er was Margaret Stewart 
Holzderber '34, who was 
Anne's freshman sister. 
Margaret and Anne were close 
during college years, so she 
was able to tell Maryann a little 
about her mother when she was 
young. Maryann was only ten 
years old when her mother 
died. Anne Fennessy is plan- 
ning on having a fall reunion at 

her home in Greenwich Village

From the Editor ... 

With so many inquiries from our 
alumni about our current stu- 
dents, I have decided to include a picto- 
rial display on page 13. I hope this will 
give you an idea of who they are and 
what they are interested in. 

Sherrie Van Arnuam, Director of 
Student Services on the Brooklyn cam- 
pus says, "St. Joseph's is still the kind of 
place that's sensitive to the needs of stu- 
dent life. The majority of our students 
combine the rigors of academics with 
part-time employment, yet still manage 
to have an extra-curricular life. They 
participate in student government, ath- 
letics, and a wide variety of clubs and 
organizations. " 

The administration and faculty 
believe the personal growth of students 
at St. Joseph's is enhanced by the 
school's long tradition of volunteer ser- 
vice. Each organization strongly 
encourages community service, an 
effort that also fosters a spirit of com- 
munity at SJC. The Undergraduate 
Association on the Brooklyn campus 
fed homeless people on Thanksgiving 

morning and participated in the Bright 
Christmas program of the Catholic 
Charities Office for Disabled Persons. 
The sorority and fraternity held a 
Halloween party at SJC for HIV-infect- 
ed children. The Child Study Club 
and Campus Ministry are sponsoring a 
teen club for the mentally retarded. 
The Patchogue students participated in 
the annual "Community Plunge" pro- 
ject at Hope House Ministries, on 
September 24th. This was followed in 
October with involvement in the 
American Cancer Society's Walkathon 
at Jones Beach. On November 1 1th, 
the Campus Ministry joined with 
Habitat for Humanity to build a house 
for a needy family in Central Islip. 

I am confident that you would be 
proud of our undergraduates. They are 
fine young men and women who con- 
tinue to uphold the best traditions of 
St. Joseph's College.

It is the policy of St. Joseph's College not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national or 
ethnic origin, age, handicap, or marital status in the educational programs, admissions policies, employment 
policies, financial aid or other school administered programs. This policy is implemented in compliance with 
Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1 972, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Section 504 of the 
Rehabilitation Act of 1986, as well as any other applicable federal state or local statutes 




"There are rwo kinds of people. One kind, 
you can tell by looking at them at what point 
they congealed into their final selves. It might be 
a very nice self, but you know you can expect no 
more surprises from it. Where as the other kind 
keeps moving, changing... they are fluid. They 
keep moving forward and making new trysts 
with life and the motion of it keeps them young. 
In my opinion, they are the only people who are 
still alive." 

from The Finishing School, by Gail Godwin 

Clearly Mary Brennan Mulvihill is one ol 
the second kind of people. When we last pro- 
fded her in the Summer '78 issue of 
Alumnagram, she owned a business. The 
Better Mousetrap, that manufactured and sold 
wooden and canvas furniture nationwide. By 
that time she had worked as director of cus- 
tomer services at Madison Square Garden for 
seven years and had earned an MBA at 
Fordham in 1976. 

She didn't even 

begm ner career m 

higher education 

until 1980, when she became a lecturer, and 

eventually associate dean of the College of 

Business, at Fordham University. In 1994, she 

became Dr. Mulvihill when she completed her 

Ed.D. at Fordham. 

Mary draws on all of her prolessional expe- 
rience in her present job at St. John's 
University, where she is associate dean of the 
4000-student St. Vincent's College, responsi- 
ble for its day-to-day operations. She also 
finds time to serve on the boards of the 
Women's Commission for Refugee Women 
and Children, of Fordham's University 
Neighborhood Housing Program, and ol the 
Lower East Side Tenement Museum. 

At SJC, she was a debater and president of 
the student government. She speaks of the 
"confidence and self-esteem I gained during 
my four years. The nuns were wonderful role 
models and supporters of educated and suc- 
cessful women." 

Mary is a world traveler and an avid reader, 
with a special interest in the women who went 
west in wagon trains in the 1840s and '50s. She 
is an active fund-raiser in Democratic politics 
and for special causes, like the Presentation 


School, an elementary school in Jamaica. She 
lives in Bronxville with her husband, Roger, and 
her three children: Christopher, 22, Kerry, 20, 
and Susy, 13. 


In 1970, Joan earned a Ph.D. in French lit- 
erature from Yale University, where she also 
met Philip Stewart, who holds a Yale B.A. and 
Ph.D. They were married in Cambridge, MA, 
in 1970. 

Joan taught French tor two years at 
Wellesley College, while living in Leverett 
House at Harvard University, where Philip was 
on the faculty. In 1972, they moved to 
Durham, NC, where they have lived ever 
since. Philip is a professor of French at Duke 
University, and Joan is a professor of French at 
North Carolina State University. 

For the last twelve years, she has also had 
extensive administrative responsibilities as 
head of the depart- 
ment of foreign lan- 
guages and litera- 
tures at North 
Carolina State, which now has about sixty fac- 
ulty members. Under Joan's leadership the 
department added the teaching of Chinese, 
Swahili, Hindi and comparative literature. 
She has also worked with professional and vol- 
unteer organizations, chairing the North 
Carolina Humanities Council (the state-based 
program of the National Endowment for the 
Humanities) from June 1988 to October 

Joan has received the North Carolina State 
University Outstanding Teaching Award, 
and has carried on an active research pro- 
gram. Her publications include essays in 
Scribner's European Writers and the Harvard 
New History of French Literature as well as 
books on the eighteenth century writer 
Marie Riccoboni and the twentieth-century 
writer Colette. In 1993 Gynographs, a study 
of eighteenth-century women novelists was 
published by the University of Nebraska 
Press, as well as translation of an eighteenth- 
century novel by Isabelle de Charriere. .The 
latter two volumes, a collaborative effort with 
her husband and Professor Jean Vache, were 
the inaugural titles in the Modern Language

Beatrice SchnellerFenniinore 

Association series "Texts and Translations." 
In 1995 she received the Outstanding 
Research Award of the North Carolina 
State University College of Humanities and 
Social Sciences. 

Joan has had residential fellowships at the 
Fondation Camargo in Cassis, France in 1979, 
at the National Humanities Center in 1982- 
83, at the Center for the Humanities at 
Wesleyan University in 1990, and at the 
Maison Suger in Paris in 1994. 

In the past five years, she has also held two 
major fellowships from the National 
Endowment for the Humanities. Joan's cur- 
rent research, supported by the Endowment, is 
an interdisciplinary book project on women 
and aging in the French Enlightment a subject 
on which she lectured recently at the universi- 
ties of Oxford and Exeter. She is studying the 
ways women of the eighteenth century experi- 
enced and wrote about growing old, and the 
ways in which the aging process related to 
health, desire and everyday life and work. Joan 
says, "I am grateful to St. Joseph's for the 
enduring friendships I formed there (with 
Christine McArdle Reno, Maryanne Keenan 
Moller and Kathleen Gordon Cirillo), and I 
am grateful to my wise and generous teachers: 
to Ms. Norma Mallia for her discernment and 
rigor, to Sister John Raymond for her nurtur- 
ing wisdom, and to Dr. Robert Radus for 
teaching me to combine the pleasures of acting 
and the pleasures of French. " 

Joan's daughter, Anna Faye, is a senior at 
Haverford College, PA, and her son, Justin, is 
a freshman at Guilford College, NC. 


Joan was on the 'A Plan". One thing she 
was never going to do was teach. She began 
her career as a programmer at Abraham & 
Strauss from 1966 to 1968. In 1969 she 
joined the American Institute of Physics, in 
New York as a programmer analyst. This was 
followed by positions with Avon Products and 
Crouse Irving Memorial Hospital in Syracuse. 

Finally, in 1978, she found that the oppor- 
tunity to teach at the college level fit in very 
well with her family responsibilities. She 
joined the faculty at SUNY Morrisville as an 
instructor in computer information systems. 

While pursuing this new career, she was 
simultaneously working towards a master's 
degree in management information systems 
at SUNY Binghamton. Joan currently holds 
the position of Associate Professor, 
Computer Information Systems, at SUNY 
Morrisville. She is married to Bill Danehy 
and has two children: Kevin, 32, and Kara 
Mulaney, 29. 

Joan credits her success in the field of com- 
puters to a liberal arts education. She remem- 
bers grudgingly fulfilling requirements in 
English and music, while enjoying her cours- 
es in math and chemistry. However, she feels 
strongly that the interests she has today are a 
result of her exposure to subjects that she 
would not have chosen to pursue. Joan says, 
"At SJC, I started to become a well-rounded 
educated person who knows how to learn. " 
Joan believes her years in teaching were great- 
ly affected by wonderful role models at SJC. 
She quotes Henry Adams: "A teacher affects 
eternity; he can never tell where his influ- 
ence stops." 


Beatrice majored in English at SJC and 
became an early childhood teacher after grad- 
uation. While raising her two daughters, she 
completed a master's degree in special educa- 
tion at Brooklyn College, a Master of 
Education in Curriculum and Teaching and a 
Doctor of Education with early childhood spe- 
cialization at Teachers College, Columbia 

During this time, Bz taught at Marymount 
College and Teachers College. She moved to 
Pittsburgh in 1985. For the last eight years, 
she has been teaching at Indiana University of 
Pennsylvania, where she is now a full professor 
in the department of professional studies in 
education. She has also served on the summer 
faculty at Teachers College. 

Bz teaches doctoral, graduate and under- 
graduate courses in early childhood and ele- 
mentary education; she supervises student 
teachers in Pittsburgh public schools and 
chairs the multicultural ethics committee. She 
has also written two books; Child Advocacy for 
Early Childhood Educators and Student 

2 St. Joseph's College 


Centered Classroom Management. In 1991 stu- 
dents at lUP gave Bz the Outstanding 
Professor Award. 

"My experience at SJC was unique and mem- 
orable," Bz says, "and it gave me invaluable 
insights into the critical importance of teaching 
and learning in modern society. I am grateful 
to my aunt, Sister Mary Beatrice Schneller and 
others for their kind encouragement." 

In her spare time, Bz has run 1 1 marathons 
and frequently races in 5K and lOK events. 
Her daughters are Sharon, 22, a senior at the 
University of Pennsylvania, and Maryann, 18, 
a senior at Taylor Alderdice HS. 


As Resident Life Coordinator at the 
University of Maine in Orono, Thomas Wendt 
provides guidance, training and leadership for 
a college community comprised ol some 1,300 

Upon graduating from SJC's Patchogue 
campus in 1988, Tom worked in the field ol 
youth ministry for two years before pursuing a 
career in higher education. His first step was 
getting his Master of Arts degree from 
Columbia University in 1991. Since then, he 
has worked at St. Mary's University in San 
Antonio, Texas, Syracuse University, and now 
the University of Maine, where he plans to 
pursue his doctorate as well. 

At St. Josephs, Tom was vice president of 
the Undergraduate Association, vice president 
of Campus Ministry, and a member of Circle 
K. He was named to the Dean's List for six 
semesters and was nominated as a candidate 
for Valedictorian of his class. Looking back, he 
credits SJC with instilling in him the "convic- 
tion and confidence" he needed to face the 
challenges of life. 

"SJC provided me with the personal attention 
I needed to not only succeed but flourish," he 
says. "As a professional, I am committed to pro- 
viding that same personal touch in my daily 
work as an educator. St. Joe's provided an envi-

accepted her current position as academic advi- 
sor in the School of Professional Development 
and Continuing Studies (SPD) at SUNY

"SJC's personal approach, high quality of 
education, and evening course avail- 
ability contributed to my incentive and con- 
fidence in pursuing my professional goals." 
She recently earned a Master of Science 
degree with a concentration in college stu- 
dent development and counseling from Long

Dorothy Bloodgood Kennedy '48 

On Friday evening, October 20th, the College presented its 
Distinguished Citizen Award to Dorothy Bloodgood Kennedy 
'48. She became the first woman and the first alum to be so 
honored. Below, is the moving speech that she delivered to the 
almost seven hundred guests who were in attendance. 

Spring 1943 was not a cheerful time. The depres- 
sion dragged on, and World World II was at its 
height. Because of the economic situation of those 
bleak days, College for me 
seemed a dim prospect. 

That April Sr. Teresa Josephine, 
my grade advisor at Bishop 
McDonnell High School, sent tor 
me. "Dorothy," she said, "You ha\c 
been accepted at Hunter College. 
"But," she continued, "you are going 
to go to St. Joseph's College," and she 
pushed my Hunter application to the 
back of the desk. 

1 was speechless. I knew nothing 
about St. Josephs, its location, its 
hicilities, its academic reputation, 
and most of all, its cost. Why would 
I want to go there instead of to 
tuition tree Hunter? Sr. Teresa 
Josephine, however, was a No. 1 

recruiter. One week later I traveled to Clinton Avenue in 
Brooklyn, where I toured St. Joseph's, met students and fac- 
ulty, wandered through the beautiful old buildings, and fell 
in love with this inner city college that was the nearest thing 
to a boarding school that I had ever seen. 

I wanted to be a part of St. Joseph's, but first I had to go 
home to see whether my father could afford it. After all, the 
tuition was $100 a term. My father and I talked and final- 
ly he said, "If you can work part time during the school year 
and full time during the summer vacation, I think we can 
do it together. " I was thrilled. I made all kinds of plans tor 
the coming year and even into future years, but I forgot to 
heed a very wise saying, "If you want to hear God laugh, tell 
Him your plans. " 

Three months after beginning St. Joseph's in the fall of 
1943, I developed pneumonia. In those days of no 
penicillin or miracle drugs, it was a serious illness. The doc- 

tor said returning to school before January was impossible. 
Upsetting news for me. Beginning again would mean new 
classmates, changes in subjects, different teachers, and most 
of all— a loss of the first term tuition money. I would not be 
able to raise $100 by February. 

I went to see Msgr. Dillon, who was the dean of St. 
Joseph's at that time. I explained my situation and 
asked him for advice. Perhaps I would have to put college 
on hold and return at a much later time. 

Msgr. Dillon listened to all the 
problems and said, "Dorothy, come 
back and start anew in February. 
We'll apply the $100 you paid in 
September to your new term. Don't 
worry about it now. Someday you 
may want to repay the College. " 

That someday has arrived. This 
evening is my payment for the all the 
love, warmth, direction, moral guid- 
ance, and intellectual stimulation 
that the faculty gave to me. 
Furthermore, the intrinsic rewards of 
St. Joseph's are priceless. 

The friendships that were forged in 
those years are still an important part 
of my existence. The strength for me 
to face the complications of everyday 
situations was nurtured by St. Joseph's, and the character 
development that stemmed from our honor system still per- 
vades every facet of my being. Our College motto, especial- 
ly, gave me the greatest guideline for dealing with life. "Esse 
non videri"- to be not to seem (to be). Be true to yourself 
and to your principles. 

Tonight, I do not accept this award for Dorothy 
Bloodgood Kennedy, but I accept it as a symbol of all the 
women graduates of St. Joseph's College. 

St. Joseph's, you have been our guiding light and our 
mentor. You have made us what we are today - 20th cen- 
tury women, well prepared for and eagerly anticipating the 
21st century. 

Thank you, St. Joseph's, for everything, and God bless all 
of you who have made this evening such a great success.

The Gift That Works for You 

At its November meeting, the Board of Trustees approved the establishment of a 
Pooled Income Fund to be administered by Merrill Lynch Trust Company. 

Plan Highlights 

Purpose of the Fund: 

The Fund is a charitable giving 
vehicle which is designed to: 

■ provide a lifetime source of 
income for you (and your spouse, 
if you direct) 

■ provide opportunities for tax 

■. provide long-range support for 
St. Joseph's College 

Gifts to the Fund: 

The minimum initial gift to the 
Fund is $5,000. Subsequent gifts 
of $1,000 or more may be made 
at any time. 

For More Information, write or call: 

St. Joseph's College 
Planned Giving Program 
245 Clinton Avenue 
Brooklyn, New York 11205 
(718) 636-6880 

St. Joseph's College 
Planned Giving Program 
155 West Roe Boulevard 
Patchogue, New York 
(516) 654-3602 


Essentially, the Fund operates like a mutual fund, so that you (and your spouse, 
if directed) will receive a pro rata share of the income generated by the Fund on 
a quarterly basis for life. Income level is not fixed or guaranteed; your income 
will vary according to the actual rate of income earned by the Fund. 

In addition, there are advantages associated with participation in St. Joseph's 
College Pooled Income Fund. Generally speaking: 

1. You may claim an income tax charitable deduction for a portion of your gift, 
depending on your age and current IRS regulations. 

2. If your gift consists of appreciated securities, you will avoid capital gains 
tax on that appreciation. 

3. Your gift to the Fund is removed from your taxable estate. 

Additional information will be 
provided prior to your enroll- 
ment. Since each donor's cir- 
cumstances are different, your 
tax consequences may vary; you 
may wish to consult your attor- 
ney and/or tax advisor before 
enrolling in this program. 


Upon your death (and/or that of 

your beneficiary, if applicable) your remaining interest in the Fund will be given 
to St. Joseph's College to further its institutional mission. If you wish to restrict 
the use of those funds for a particular purpose (i.e. scholarships, endowment, 
building programs, etc.) you may do so.

Ar 5/-. Joseph's College magnificent new, state-of-the-art 
Athletic Center... there will be something for everyone. 
Student athletes ivill find facilities for practice, body- 
building and competition. Others, whether students, facul- 
ty, staff, alumni or friends, will find many oppotunities for 
personal fitness training, aerobics, intramurals and club 
sports. Ground has been broken and completion is expected 
by late fall '96. 

10 St. Joseph's College 

Athletic Center 


— vtr,^— T sfiif^v I 'tr- 

s a college in the liberal 
arts tradition, St. Joseph's 
has always embraced the 
ideal of a holistic educa- 
tional environment which 
nurtures the development 
of a "sound mind in a sound 
body". Therefore, we have 
always sought to provide a fijll 
range of academic programs and 
athletic activities for our stu- 
dents. Even in the earliest days of 
our history, SJCs basketball team 
had an enviable reputation, and 
in the last few years, our athlet- 
ics program has grown in leaps 
and bounds... especially at our 
Suffolk campus. 

The growth of the athletics 
program is but a part of the 
astonishing success we have 
experienced since the Patchogue 
Campus was opened in 1979. 
In that short time, our enroll- 
ment has increased more than 
600%... from under 400 in 
1979, to over 2400 in the cur- 
rent academic year. This rapid 
development inspired us to 
undertake a study of our present 
and long-term needs, and the 
resulting Ten-Year Master Plan 
is now in the early stages of 

The Master Plan envisions 
the creation of a beautiful yet 
functional campus at which 
each student would find appro- 

priate, ample facilities for study 
and recreation. The interests of 
our faculty, staff, and alumni, as 
well as our many friends in the 
local community, were also care- 
fully considered as we developed 
a three-phrase program for 

Phase I is already completed, 
resulting in an elegant Academic 
Center consisting of 8 class- 
rooms, lounge areas, student 
offices, and a large multi-pur- 
pose meeting room. This 
Center was created in what was 
our gymnasium, and so Phase II 
of our Master Plan calls for the 
construction of a state-of-the-art 
Athletic Center... with a target 
completion date of Fall 1996. 
Phase III incorporates a new 
Student Center. 

Through this construction 
program, the academic and 
recreational needs of the whole 
College family will be addressed 
and an environment lor the 
total development of 
each person will be 
assured. Perhaps, we 
may even reach the 
ideal of "a sound 
mind in a sound

Two Retire From General Studies 

Victor Brown's Retirement Party 

September 5, 1995 

It is wonderful to be here to honor Victor Brown and cele- 
brate with him on the occasion of his retirement. 

Victor began in the fall of 1976 as Lecturer in Health 
Administration. From there, he was promoted to Preceptor 
and then to Assistant Professor. He was later appointed to 
Coordinator of the Department of Health Administration in 
March of 1983 and was subsequently designated Department 

In his leadership capacity, Victor devoted himself to devel- 
oping innovative and exciting curricular and extra-curricular 
activities. For example, Victor was tireless in his effort to pro- 
vide non-credit seminars on current topics germane to the 
health field. Victor was also ever-ready to go out to area hos- 
pitals to establish off-campus extension sites, recruit new stu- 
dents, and teach the gerontology certificate to health profes- 

A project close to Victor's heart has been bringing the 
Rockaway Review to St. Josephs. Victor initiated two fundrais- 
ers which showcased this musical group from the Rockaway 
Senior Citizens Center. 

Victor's signature contribution, however, involved his field 

Suzanne Trappier s Retirement Party 

November Z9, 1995 

Dear Suzanne: 

You are so much a part of 
the St. Joseph's family 
that it is hard to think of a 
time when you were not here. 
But, obviously, there was a 
date that saw your arrival: and 
it was the fall of 1980 when 
you began taking courses at 
the College. 

While still a student, you 
were asked to come on board 
part-time as a recruiter. And 
immediately following your 
graduation, we prevailed 
upon you to join us in the 
capacity of Admissions 

Thus began your career 
with us-a thirteen-year time 
frame that saw you promoted 
to Coordinator of Student 
Services. In addition to stu- 
dent advisement, you recruit- 

Suzanne Trappier 

ed at sites, conducted 
Graduate School exploration 
Days, coordinated the 
Division Advisory Council, 
and were present in the cafe- 
teria nights and weekends, sit- 
ting at your corner table serv- 
ing as a vital connection 
among students, faculty and 

Each spring-as daffodils 
and forsythia bloomed-you 
would burst forth with raffle 

trips connected with CHA 500 
International Health Systems. 
Reflecting the Division's long- 
standing tradition of serving an 
international student popula- 
tion, Victor brought the 
room out of Brooklyn into the 
wider world -to locations such as 
Trinidad and Tobago, Hawaii, 
Panama, and Barbados. 

In closing, then, permit me to 
draw from the praises heaped on 
Victor by his students: 

■ Mr. Brown relates to students extremely well and encour- 
ages students to express opinions 

■ Mr. Brown has once again brought to this course a wealth 
of experience-he is an excellent instructor who is extremely 
knowledgeable and resourceful 

■ He widened my viewpoints to the care of and concern for 
older people in today's society 

Victor, thank you for your contributions, and good luck 
with your retirement. 

-Thomas G. Travis, Dean 

tickets. Blessed be, did you 
ever sell a lot of tickets, a task 
that raised hundreds and 
hundreds of dollars for the 
College. This knack for fund 
raising also extended to 
phonathons. A rough calcu- 
lation shows that through 
your plodding, over the years 
we raised approximately 
$35,000 for the College. 

And then there were the 
galas-the student dance in 
"245, 'graduation gatherings 
at Prospect Hall and the 
Spring Celebration at the 
Caroline Pratt Mansion. 
While working at SJC, you 
went on to earn a master's 
degree in education, guid- 
ance, and counseling at 
Brooklyn College. Following 
receipt of this degree in 1991, 
you began teaching for St. 
Joseph's-notably as part of a 
funded program to offer col- 
lege courses at the Marcus 
Garvey Head Start Center 

and at the Community 
Parents' Head Start program. 
Thus, academically speaking, 
you came full circle, from 
adult student to teacher of 

Suzanne, you have done 
much for us over the years: in 
the big things as I've indicated 
above, but also in the small 
things that have kept us 
together as a family in 
Lorenzo Hall. 

You are a good person, 
kind and compassion- 
ate-always concerned about 
others and ever ready to bring 
peace and love into our midst. 
For this, above all, we will 
miss you. We are deeply 
thankful for all that you have 
done, and truly grateful that 
you will still be with us a loyal 
and dedicated member of the 

God bless you, 

-Thomas G. Travis, Dean

spoke movingly of her experi-

to withdraw from class. She told 
us of Msgr. Dillon's kindness to 
her at that time and how her 
participation (along with that of 
her husband, Bernard, and her 
family) was actually a return to 
the College for the kindness and 
understanding she received at 
that time. The evening was a 
splendid affirmation of all that 
St. Joseph's meant to Dorothy 
and to all of us who shared that 
' experience. It was a wonderful 
evening which all who attended 
enjoyed. A thank you to all the 
generous members of our class

tisement which we placed in the

A Letter from the President. 

Dear Graduate: 

What a response! St. Joseph's College grads never cease to amaze me... 
and as always... never disappoint me. 

My recent letter to you concerning the alarming decrease in alumni participation 
in the Annual Fund has sparked an overwhelming show of support from each 
generation of alumni. 

Your generosity continues to flow in daily in the form of letters, contributions, 
phone calls, and offers of volunteer help. 

The result of your efforts are still being tallied and will be reported in the 
1995-1996 President's Report scheduled for publication this Fall. 

I appreciate your continued generous support. Be assured of my deep personal 
gratitude and of my continued prayers for you and all you hold dear.

That path began in the early '60s at St. 
Joseph's. "My peers in college were not in 
education; I had to defend my choice of 
teaching as a career constantly," Margaret 
remembers. " I chose high school teaching 
because I wanted to teach, not because it 
was acceptable. That argument prepared me 
for many discussions that would ensue over 
the next 30 years." 

For the next 13 years she taught social 
studies, then became assistant principal of 
Curtis High School in 1977, then principal 
of Port Richmond High School in 1982. 
She achieved the Ed. D. from Fordham in 
1991, after receiving the M.A. at Brooklyn 
in 1966 and the Ph.D. Irom the College ol 
Staten Island in 1976. 

Margaret has won 
more than a dozen 
professional honors, 
including Educator of the Year awards from 
the Catholic Teachers Association, the 
Association of Teachers of New York, and 
the Emerald Society, and the Irish Woman 
of the Year in 1996 from the Irish-American 
Heritage Committee. 

As an SJC student, Margaret worked in 
the library, was yearbook business manager 
for two years, and was in Sing. "SJC was all 
female in the 1960s," she says. "This pro- 
vided a support to me and my classmates. 
Free-ranging, thought-provoking discus- 
sion, intellectual arguments, great sharing 
and personal and professional development 
over time was tied to my peers and our 
involvement with one another, but also to 
the academic stimulus provided by our 
teachers. For me. Sister Joan DeLourdes 
and Sister Joseph Damien provided an 
intellectual framework for discussion which 
still informs my thought process today. " 

Margaret reads a lot in her spare time, and 
is now writing about her professional prac- 
tice. She also spends time carpooling and 
talking to the friends of her 13-year-old 
daughter Jessica. Her husband is Mel Hardin. 



Since 1992 Nancy Brogan has been prin- 
cipal of the 1400-student Ditmas 
Intermediate School 62 in Flatbush, 

A former New York State Teacher of the 
Year, with a similar award from the Catholic 
Teachers Association, Nancy started out at 
Junior High School 136 in 1969, shortly 
after graduation from St. Joseph's. In 1976 
she took time off for maternity, caring for 
three daughters, and didn't resume her 
career until 1982. She was promoted to 
assistant principal at IS 14 in 1986, before 
taking over at IS 62. Her current major pro- 
ject there is school-wide restructuring 
through the Annenberg network. 

Nancy pursued graduate degrees at 
Brooklyn College, earning a master's degree 
in 1972 and a professional certificate in 
1985. She credits her 
SJC experience as "a 
constant source of 
inner strength in deal- 
ing with difficult personal and professional 
decisions affecting the lives of others. I am 
extremely grateful for this special faith." 

Nancy lives on Avenue P in Brooklyn, 
with her three daughters, Kelly Anne, 22, 
Kathleen Patricia 20, and Jamie Marie, 17. 
Her interests away from the job are tennis, 
golf, swimming, reading and parish service. 


Mary Butz, like the other alumnae educa- 
tors profiled here, began teaching right after 
graduation from SJC in 1969, but her path 
led in an unusual direction— to founding 
and running Manhattan Village Academy, 
one of the city's new, small high schools. 

For Mary the first step after college was 
teaching social studies at New Utrecht High 
School in Brooklyn, but there were also 
activities outside the classroom, assisting 
the dean and the chairman of social studies, 
and directing student affairs. The New 
Utrecht stint ended in heartbreak, when the 
fiscal crisis of 1975 forced her to change

Mary Ann (hiodiZappetti 

But the change--to Edward R. Murrow 
High School— turned out to be a blessing. 
Facing the challenge of being one of two 
females in a department with 25 males, she 
stayed for 13 years, becoming assistant prin- 
cipal of social studies and eventually finding 
her way in staff development. 

In 1988 she left Murrow to join the UFT 
Teacher Center, and went on to the Queens 
high school office in 1989 to direct staff 
development, where she soon began work- 
ing for fellow alumna Margaret Harrington 
(see Profile, page 1). In 1991 she worked for 
the American Federation of Teachers in 
Washington, D.C., traveling to train teach- 
ers in such newly democratic nations as 
Poland, Lithuania, and Nicaragua. 

In 1993, starting from scratch, Mary 
founded the Manhattan Village Academy. 
She thought up the name, selected the staff, 
recruited the students, chose the building 
on West 22nd Street, helped the architect 
design the school, and developed the PTA. 
The school now has three grades and 220 
students; in September it will have all four 
high school classes. 

Mary is another alumna who appreciates 
St. Joseph's all-female environment in her 
student days. "I am also grateful that I 
attended a Catholic college; it provided me 
with a sense of commitment to my faith and 
warm, wonderful memories of a world filled 
with laughter and innocence— a world that 
is rapidly lading." 

Mary received her M.A. in 1972 Irom 
Brooklyn College and has completed all but 
the dissertation in the doctoral program at 
Teachers College. In 1985 she was chosen as 
a Kellogg National Fellow, an honor that 
enabled her to visit and study schools all 
around the world. Mary enjoys cooking and 
collecting wine. 


Another principal in this group of alum- 
nae educators is Kathleen Lavin, who since 
1993 has been in charge of PS 177, an ele- 
mentary school on Avenue P in Brooklyn, 
which she considers the most challenging 
assignment of her career. She recently 
received a state grant for multicultural edu- 

cation at the school, well suited to her high- 
ly diverse student body. 

She started out after graduation in 1972 
at Our Lady Help ot Christians in 
Brooklyn, teaching learning-disabled stu- 
dents at PS 52 in Sheepshead Bay in 
Brooklyn, becoming "learning specialist" in 
1982 for a program to "mainstream" learn- 
ing-disabled children into regular classes. 
In 1986, she was appointed assistant princi- 
pal of PS 119. 

She earned master's degrees at Staten 
Island and Brooklyn colleges, and a 
Professional Diploma (1988) and a doctor- 
ate (1992) from Fordham. She has also 
begun teaching part time at the College of 
New Rochelle. She collaborated with her 
sister, Claire Lavin SJC '62, on presenta- 
tions of research on "Women in 
Administration" in Boston and at Trinity 
College, Dublin. 

Kathleen belongs to the Association for 
Supervision and Curriculum Development 
and the Elementary School Principals 


Mary Ann Zappetti's life changed when 
she decided to return to school after many 
years and enrolled at St. Joseph's Suffolk 
Campus. That was in the late 1970s. Today, 
she is still in school--the Blue Point 
Elementary School, to be exact— but as the 

Asked about SJC, Mary Ann, a 1982 
graduate, wrote: " 'Look with favor on new- 
beginnings' (Anonymous, Ancient Greece.) 
Attending SJC was a new beginning for me, 
and I have always attempted to live life as a 
challenge, not to be frightened by change, 
and to enjoy each day." 

A psychology major, Mary Ann began her 
career as a school psychologist in 1985 in 
the Bayport-Blue Point Schools. In addi- 
tion, she served as assistant chairperson of 
the district's Committee on Special 
Education and chairperson of the 
Committee on Preschool Special 
Education, a position she still holds. In 
1991, she was appointed principal of Blue 

2 St. Joseph's College 



Point Elementary. 

Mary Ann and three teachers at Blue 
Point presented a workshop on inclusive 
education at the New York State Education 
Conference in May, 1995 and developed 
the school's integrated kindergarten pro- 
gram at Blue Point Elementary, which has 
been extremely successful. 

At St. Joseph's, Mary Ann began and 
chaired the Women's Transition Club for 
returning students like herself. "At that time 
there was a critical need for a support group 
for women, " Mary Ann recalled. In addi- 
tion to her bachelor's degree in psychology 
from SJC, Mary Ann has an M.S. degree in 
school psychology from St. John's 
University and a Professional Diploma in 
school district administration from C.W. 
Post. She is a member of the New York and 
the National Association of School 

Mary Ann is grateful for the education she 
received at SJC. "My psychology classes pre- 
pared me for graduate work at St. John's," 
she said. "My classes in the education 
department taught me all about the child 
and the school environment. The faculty at 
SJC was supportive, yet demanding. " 

Mary Ann lives in Holbrook with her 
husband of 33 years, Thomas. The couple 
has two daughters. Dawn, 30, a graduate of 
Cornell and Columbia Universities, and 
Dana, 22, a graduate of Brown University, 
where she is also a first year medical stu- 
dent. Mary Ann's leisure activities include 
reading, opera and the theater. 


Lisa Henry Alter was no stranger to Frank 
J. Carasiti Elementary School in Rocky 
Point, Long Island when she was appointed 
principal two-and-a-half years ago. She had 
been a second-grade teacher there since 
1987, when she graduated from the SJC 
Patchogue Campus. She was also founder 
and director of the district's adult education 
and REAL (Recreational, Educational, and 
Leisure Activities) programs. What's more. 

Lisa herself was a product of the Rocky 
Point schools. 

"I had to do some soul searching because 
I was not sure if I was ready to leave the 
classroom, " Lisa said. "However, I accepted 
the position because I felt that I could make 
a positive difference in the lives of so many 
more children as principal. " 

In her short tenure, Lisa has already made 
a difference. She established a building-wide 
positive reward system that allows students 
to earn "principal points" for excellent hall- 
way behavior. She also initiated an "Author 
of the Week" program, in which students 
judge and honor the writings of their peers. 
"My goal is to develop a close-knit commu- 
nity feeling, even though our building is so 
large," Lisa said. "All these things foster a 
loving environment that make children feel 
comfortable and love school." 

At St. Joseph's, Lisa was president of the 
Foreign Language Club. In 1990 she 
earned a master's from SUNY at Stony 
Brook. She has additional graduate credits 
in administration from C.W. Post and the 
College of New Rochelle. In 1994 she 
received the P.T.A. Jenkins Memorial 
Award, and she is an active member of the 
Long Island Elementary School Principals 
Association for the Towns of Islip and 

Looking back, Lisa expressed thanks to 
her professors for their guidance and con- 
cern. "Their high standards promote the 
personal drive and persistence needed to be 
successful," she said. "SJC prepared me with 
the foundation to be an effective educator. 
The Child Study program is strong, and 
high expectations are set by all the teachers. 
This background prepared me to accept all 
challenges and to achieve the best." 

Lisa and her husband Jeff live in Port 
Jefferson with their two dogs, a Brichon 
Frise named Penelope and a Golden 
Retriever named Stanley. In her spare time, 
she enjoys playing the piano and singing, 
especially with her students. She loves to 
tell stories, read and ski.

POTLIGHT on General Studies Alumni 

Andrea lowe Reynolds 

Andrea Lowe Reynolds '83 

By the time Andrea arrived at the 
St. Joseph's G.S. program in 1981, 
she was already a Registered Nurse 
with seven years of experience in the 
emergency ward at Bellevue 
Hospital. While making the dean's 
list in her undergraduate major in 
1982 and 1983 in community 
health at SJC, she worked in the 
emergency room at Queens Hospital 

Center, handling acute traumas like gunshot and stab 
wounds and burns. 

Since graduation she has spent most of her career as a 
nursing director at treatment centers in the South Bronx, 
managing and training the nursing staff at the Morrisania 
Diagnostic and Treatment Center since February 1995. 

Andrea also pursued her graduate studies after SJC, earn- 
ing two master's degrees from Teachers College, along with 
the Ed.D. in 1995. She has received a citation from 
Community Board 13 for outstanding service to the Bronx 
community and was the keynote speaker at a 1992 confer- 
ence on multicultural nursing sponsored by CUNY and 
the Health and Hospitals Corporation. 

Dennis Grecco 

Dennis Grecco '95 

In the midst ot a career at Sweetheart 
Cup Co., Dennis Grecco began the 
G.S. management program at SJC. 
The impact of his studies on his pro- 
fessional life was immediate. "The 
most satisfying experience of returning 
to school as a working adult is the 
instant gratification of being able to 
implement fresh ideas in the business 
environment, " he says. 

Since graduation in 1995, Dennis says he has been produc- 
ing a flood of new ideas for his division, where he has been a 
field engineer and a regional service manager. One idea is a new 
safety training program conforming to federal guidelines that 
the company will now establish nationwide. Another is a pre- 
dictive maintenance program that makes it possible to develop 
a work schedule a year in advance. "The bottom line," he says, 
"is that St. Joseph's was the stimulus for my creativity. " 

In addition to working for a corporation, Dennis has owned 
and operated two small businesses— a men's shop and a burglar 
and fire alarm company, both in Brooklyn— and performed a 
varierv' of technical and service jobs since starting out in 1970.

on Our Faculty 

Sister Anne Behre,(.S. J. 

Sister Anne Behre, SJC's beloved pro- 
fessor ot Child Study, had already accom- 
plished what most people would consider 
a life's work before she even arrived at St. 
Joseph's in 1981. 

A year after graduation from St. John's 
University in 1959, Sister founded the St. 
Francis de Sales School for the Deal and 
remained as superintendent for the next 
two decades. She has been a prominent educator in that field, 
serving two terms as secretary for the Conference of Executives 
of American Schools for the Deaf Her establishment of the St. 
Francis School brought her a Diocesan Leadership Award, and 
she has also received the Ubi Caritas, Deus Ibi award, the high- 
est granted by Catholic Charities. The inclusion of deaf stu- 
dents of all races and creeds at St. Francis led to a special award 
from the National Conference of Christians and Jews. Sister 
continues to serve the handicapped and the aged in a variety of 
community outreach programs. Along the way Sister complet- 
ed her master's at SUNY Buffalo in 1962, and her Professional 
Diploma and her Doctor of Education degree at Columbia's 
Teachers College, the latter in 1971. At St. Joseph's she has per- 
formed extensive faculty service and is current chair of the 
Academic Development Committee. She treasures the close 
contact with students that SJC makes possible. Teaching in the 
Child Study Department, she says, "I have had the opportuni- 
ty to share all that I am and all that I have experienced with 
future teachers. To be able to touch the lives of others who, in 
turn, will influence so many children makes me feel that my 
work is noble and meaningful. Teaching at St. Joseph's has truly 
energized me. " Born and raised in Brooklyn, the youngest of 
four children. Sister has not spent a single year since 1965 
without a dog of some kind in her life. 

Dr. Margaret Jennings 

Margaret Jennings likens herself to the 
compass in the John Donne poem 
"Valediction Forbidding Mourning." 
The center of her professional life, where 
her "fixed foot" is planted, is St. Joseph's 
College, where she recently finished her 
27th year in the English Department. 
But her career has also described a wide 
intellectual arc, concentrating on inten- 

sive explorations of medieval literature. 

Professor Jennings also travels far afield in the regular way, 
calling herself "Queen of the Road. " Her home is in Saxonville, 
Mass., where she spends weekends, and her work week is divid- 
ed between the SJC Brooklyn and Patchogue campuses. She 
has served for years as chair of the English Department, as well 
as chair of the Committee on Rank, Tenure and Faculty 
Interests. Twice she has chaired SJC's Middle States Self-Study 
committees. Looking back, she says her years at St. Joseph's 
"have a rosy glow, compounded of a supportive administration, 
intriguing and challenging colleagues, and delightful students. " 

With a B.A. from Brentwood College in 1964, Professor 
Jennings went on to an M.A. at the University of North 
Carolina at Chapel Hill, with additional study at C.W. Post, 
Notre Dame, Catholic and Oxford universities. By the time she 
had earned her Ph.D. from Bryn Mawr in 1970, she was 
already an instructor at St. Joseph's. Since then there has been 
a fellowship at Harvard and a Mellon Fellowship at NYU in 
1984. There have also been some 30 scholarly publications, 
including a collation of Troilus manuscripts for the 1987 
Riverside Chaucer. 

Some other skills and roles Margaret Jennings has mastered: 
volunteer accountant for two inner-city parishes, accomplished 
bricklayer, plasterer, and installer of ceramic tile. She lives in 
Saxonville, Massachusetts with her husband, Patrick Kilcovne. 



Assistant Professor 
History Mark Hessler has 
been a full-time faculty mem- 
ber at SJC's Patchogue 
Campus since the late 1980s. 
Before that, he taught part 
time at St. Joseph's, Empire 
State College, and SUNY at 
Stony Brook, where he obtained his master's and doctoral 
degrees. His bachelor's degree is from Southampton College. 

Dr. Hessler's specialty is American history. On campus he 
oversees the Local History Center, which contains a wealth of 
information on Nassau and Suffolk counties. "Long Island is 
one of the great untapped resources for regional histor}' in 
America," he says. 

Dr. Hessler's profession may have been determined from the 
very beginning: He was raised in Stony Brook in a 250-year-old 
house by parents with a deep appreciation for the past. The 

6 St. Joseph's College 

Holly Tree House, as it was called, was a favorite with commu- 
nity groups. "The garden club would run tours through it," he 

After getting his bachelor's degree in child study and doing 
some student teaching, Dr. Hessler opted for graduate school 
in history. His doctoral work focused on the American 
Colonial period, and he developed a particular interest in the 
philosophy and literature of the 1 7th and 18th centuries. 

On campus Dr. Hessler also advises the SJC History Club 
and the newly established Science Fiction Club. He sits on the 
Pre-Law Committee and is a main organizer of the SJC Fine 
Arts/Homecoming Festival, which will take place at the 
Patchogue Campus September 23-29, 1996. "One of my goals 
is to improve the fine arts at St. Joseph's and to make the com- 
munity more aware that St. Joseph's is here, ' he said. 

Dr. Hessler has been instrumental in forming the Academy 
College within a College, an interdisciplinary program whose 
debut at the Patchogue Campus is expected next spring. He 
especially enjoys the camaraderie and open-mindedness at St. 
Joseph's. "There's always room for new ideas here, and there's 
an open gate to the students," he said. "At a large institution, 
you don't really get to know your students." 

Dr. Hessler and his wife Celeste, a violin and piano teacher, 
are parents of three children: Evan, 10, Arielle, 7, and Rowe, 5. 

Dr. Jill Levin 

Dr. Jill Levin, an Assistant 
Professor of Child Study, has 
been at St. Joseph's Patchogue 
Campus for over eight years. 
She teaches both elementary 
and special education classes, 
including primary grades 
reading and language arts, 
special education curriculum, methods and materials, children 
with physical disability and health impairments, and a summer 
class focusing on the psychology of the exceptional child. This 
summer she will also be teaching a new course in adaptive cur- 
riculum that she developed for SJC's master's program in 
infant/toddler therapeutic education. 

Outside the classroom. Dr. Levin earlier this year established 
the Campus Academic Center, where faculty volunteers work 
one-on-one with students who need help with writing, study- 
ing, and other skills. She also chairs the Academic 
Development Committee, which reviews students' grades twice 
a year. 

In her 30-year career. Dr. Levin has taught elementary 
school, tutored high school students and worked as a reading 
consultant. After starting out as a kindergarten teacher, she 
recalls, "I became fascinated by children with special needs. So 
special education became my focal point. " 

Dr. Levin has a bachelor's degree in early childhood from 
Brooklyn College and a master's in special education and read- 
ing from C.W. Post. Her Ed.D. is from Nova Southeastern 

University, where she focused on special services for exception- 
al children. 

In 1987, Dr. Levin accepted a position at SJC because she 
wanted to "give back" to the teaching profession some of what 
she had learned. "I'm truly interested in developing quality 
teachers," she said. "I enjoy working with them and listening to 
them. I am an advocate for children, and I want them to be, 
too." To keep the lines of communication open, she asks her 
students to write their thoughts in journals, which she collects 
from time to time. "It's time consuming, but it really does help 
me to get to know my students." 

A Brooklyn native. Dr. Levin lives on Long Island with her 
husband Art, a businessman. Their children are Lisa, an audi- 
ologist, and Scott, a medical doctor. Dr. Levin writes poetry in 
her spare time, including a poem about children with special 
needs that appeared in a recent anthology published by the 
Library of Poetry. Another poem, "In the Fast Lane, " will 
appear in a new anthology. Carvings in Stone.

Gretchen Owens, Associate 
Professor of Child Study, who will be 
on sabbatical for the fall '96 semester. 
Gretchen will be doing research and 
writing about attachment in young 
couples and their children, working in 
collaboration with researchers in the 
Stony Brook Relationship Project, an 
ongoing longitudinal study ot attach- 
ment working models. Gretchen 
explains that these working models are 
internal representations ot experience 
which are thought to be formed during 
childhood interaction with parents and 
other caregivers. Presumably, these 
working models continue to affect 
expectations of and behavior toward 
other people even during adulthood. 
With others in the Project, Gretchen is 
interested in testing - - by interviews, 
questionnaires, and videotaped interac- 
tions - - how these representations 
influence relationships with spouses 
and children. She expects that the 
research will lead to a number of

JOBS CAN CALL THE TAPE (718-636-6882) 


[xcerpts from Hsqr. Vincent Breen's tulogy for 
Msgr. Richard Ferris 

Msgr. Ferris" life centered 
around certain themes: the 
first of these were Brooklyn 
and Queens. He was a son of 
Brooklyn; born in Greenpoint. 
His passion was tor the 
Brooklyn Dodgers. Thursday 
afternoon the two of us would 
go to Ebbets Field. I don't 
think that Richie could ever be 
hostile to anyone, but he never 

forgave Walter O'Malley. His summers were centered about 
Queens. His family has had a summer home in the Rockaways 
since almost the beginning oi Richie's life. 

The second theme of his life was his family. He adored his 
sister. His father was his hero, his mother was his example in 
life. Margaret's children know what a treasure he was for them. 
But as he matured, other themes came into his life. The call to 
the priesthood took hold of his life and his mentor was Father 
Nick Cappa whom he absolutely adored. In the spring of 1959, 
another theme entered his life, the theme of Rome. The two of 
us were asked to go in the fall to Rome to study in the North 
American College. We sailed on the USS Constitution, 

September 14, 1959. On Sunday morning we arrived at 
Algeciras, that Spanish port right by the Rock of Gibraltar. I 
ran downstairs to the cabin and said, "Richie you've got to get 
up. You've got to see the Rock of Gibraltar." He never went up 
to look at the Rock of Gibraltar. 

But Rome became a passion in his life. Rome for him was 
the sea of Peter, the Rock upon which Christ founded his 
Church. It was in Rome that his great mind was challenged and 
he developed into a mature and faithful theologian. 

Upon his return home, another theme came into his life. 
He was asked to teach at St. Joseph's College for Women. For 
twenty-five years he taught the theology of the Church as the 
Church teaches it. The last theme of his life was his beloved 
St. Genevieve Parish. He told me he wanted to die here and 
the Lord heard that prayer. There are devoted heroes here 
today: his sister Margaret, who took him into her home and 
cared for him in his illness. But the greatest of all the heroes 
today is his dad. Years ago I urged Richie to come up on deck 
to look at the Rock of Gibraltar, I know why he didn't have 
to do that. He had already seen the Rock of Gibraltar in the 
face of his father. For many of us here today, we weep at his 
passing, much too early we say. I told someone on Sunday, it 
is the end of 44 years of friendship but I was wrong, it is not 
the end. I am very lucky because I have a friend who is at the 
side of the Lord and there he will be evermore, a friend to me 
as He will be to you. 

Tribute to 
Sister Mary (orde Tymann, (.S.J., 

by Sister George Apin O'Connor, (.S.J., 

on the occasion of fier retifement Irom the faculty: 

In 1993, Sister Mary 
Corde Tymann chose 
not to celebrate a special 
occasion. This year, 
therefore, we celebrate 
her completion of 53 
years as a faculty member 
at St. Joseph's College - - 
as far as I know, the 
longest tenure of any fac- 
ulty member at SJC. 

When Sister Mary Corde graduated as 
a Mathematics major from St. Joseph's 
in 1939, she had already decided to join 
the Sisters of St. Joseph's; but envision- 
ing a teaching career at the elementary 
or secondary level, she decided to com- 
plete her own education before entering. 
In 1940 she received her MA in 
Mathematics from Columbia University. 
After a year of teaching at The Mary 

Louis Academy, in 1943 
she was appointed to the 
faculty of St. Joseph's 
College - - and the rest is 
literally history. 

At that time, the 
College envisioned the 
future need for someone 
prepared in Physics, and 
so Sister Mary Corde, 
while teaching Mathe- 
matics, began the long trek to New York 
University to complete, first the under- 
graduate major in physics, then the 
Master's in Physics. 

Throughout the years when the 
National Science Foundation provided 
wonderful opportunities for updating. 
Sister Mary Corde took advantage of 
NSF grants to the Universities of 
Buffalo, Michigan State, Nebraska, 

Rochester, Dartmouth, Wesleyan, and 
the Institute of Nuclear Studies at 
Oak Ridge. 

At one critical point, she agreed to 
serve as Acting Chairperson of the 
Mathematics Department, her first love, 
and helped to see us through a potential- 
ly difficult period. And then, with the 
development of the Patchogue Campus, 
she planned the Physics lab, traveled out 
to teach courses, and selected the faculty, 
with whom she continues to be in touch. 

With the professionalism, composure, 
and prayerful reflection which have 
always characterized her. Sister Mary 
Corde reached the decision that this 
would be her last year of teaching. She 
will continue to be available as a resource 

On behalf of Alma Mater, we salute 
you today tor a life dedicated to religious 
commitment, to the ideals ot St. Joseph's 
College, and to enabling generations 
ot students to reach their full poten- 
tial. Thank you for all that you have 
done and will continue to do. Ad 
multos annos!

Mary Manning Doherty has 

been located ! She has recuperat- 
ed from a serious eye operation 
resulting in the loss of one eye. 
She would love to hear from 
you at the Fairfax Nursing 
Center, Room 412, Main Street, 
Fairfax, VA 22030, or through 
her daughter, Mrs. Eileen 
Doyle, 5921 Seabright Road, 
Springfield, VA 22152 (703- 
644-1264). Agnes Comerford 
has returned to Holyoke after 
another stay in the hospital. She 
is comfortable, and willing to 
accept her illness with an atti- 
tude of "come what may. " Mary 
Keller Lawler is at a new resi- 
dence run by the Dominican 
Sisters, whom Mary has found 
most comforting in her recovery 
from her second hip operation. 
Mary is expecting a visit from 
her son, a professor at Yale 
University. The Lawlers of Texas 
will arrive at the same time. 
Agnes Kelly Bryan has added to 
her many activities the nurtur- 
ing of her garden of forsythia to 
remind her of Brooklyn. 
Although she lives many miles 
from her sister, Mary Kelly 
Hoermann, they keep in con- 
stant contact. Dorothy Hand is 
no longer able to host the large 
dinners and church affairs that 
gave her so much pleasure, but 
she is reasonably well and has 
many friends who still live in 
Cutchogue. Helen Callahan 
Brink is happy to report that, 
although she spends most of her 
time in a wheelchair, she is still 
able to walk a little and to visit 
her son John and his family. 
Jeannette Farrell Amery is 
happy to be living in her 
Brooklyn apartment. From her 
terrace overlooking Prospect 
Park, she enjoys the sound and 
sights of the change of seasons. 
She is still tracking down class- 
mates to convey their news to 
you. Please keep in touch with 
the class agents and let us know 
how you are.

Kathlyn Ansbro Wurts and her 

husband Ed had an exciting trip 
this year - - a visit with their 
three children in California and 
then a cruise through the 
Panama Canal. Claire Smith 
sent me a clipping from the 
Long Island Catholic, a letter 
lauding Father John Worthley 
for his heartfelt homily at a 
funeral liturgy. 1 had chats with 
a number of our classmates: 
Edna Dawkins McDonald, 
Margaret Kenny, Mary 
Impellizeri Barbieri, Winifred 
Mahon and Gertrude Unser. 
Mary White Kearney and Mary 
Whelan Phelan are busy as 
usual attending First 
Communion celebrations, grad- 
uations and weddings of their 
grandchildren. Former teachers 
for the N.Y.C. Board of 
Education will be interested in 
hearing that my son. Father 
Keith Fennessy, is now the chap- 
lain of its Emerald Society. 
When we said our adieus to our 
hostess, Helen Coughlan 
Worthley, after her beautiful 
party last September, there was a 
feeling of "finis." Not so! Helen 
is most enthusiastic about enter- 
taining us again this coming fall. 

1 will send you details in 
August. Take care and keep well 
so you can join in this great 
reunion. Always love and

Sunday, April 21st brought forty 
of our classmates to our Golden 

16 St. Joseph's College 

Jubilee celebration at the 
Alumni Luncheon in the 
Garden City Hotel. We traveled 
from around the country. 
Golden paperweights with the 
college seal were presented to 
each classmate. Brag booklets of 
our classmates' updates were dis- 
tributed, but because of volume 
could not be included here. We 
were pleased to see that Mary 
Ellen Dowd Orr, who agreed to 
chair our class part of the cele- 
bration is slowly on the mend 
after a winter accident. What 
would we have done without 
the efforts of Dorothy Strachan 
Fitzsimmons and Gertrude 
Taussig Raiola tor our class 
l.D.'s? Special thanks to 
Genevieve Kingman Lindner 
for coordinating the special 
liturgy and to Marian Quealy 
ZoU for collecting and comput- 
erizing our life stories. It was 
truly a golden occasion for us 
all! Each of us took different 
paths, finding out niche in the 
world. Yet, there was a similari- 
ty, threaded throughout, in 
advanced studies, family enrich- 
ment, and community outreach, 
common to all of us. After grad- 
uation and intervening years, 
our classmates have earned 
advanced degrees in their profes- 
sional fields, including twenty- 
six masters, (many, but not all at 
Teachers College, Columbia) 
five doctorates and two MDs. 
Professionally, we have been 
teachers on all levels from pre- 
school to post graduate instruc- 
tors and professors. We have a 
guidance counselor, a children's 
book editor, a founder of a 
school of music, and a director 
of a nursery school. There are 
three professors emerita, two 
former directors of development 
at SJC, five former NY 
Telephone reps and a retired 
NYC police detective. Many of 
us chose motherhood and often 
combined it with deferred 
careers in later years. Several 
have become entrepreneurs, and 

a vice president. We have volun- 
teered in first aid, boy and girl 
scout committees, teachers and 
library aides, in soup kitchens 
and for Meals on Wheels. At the 
parish level, many of us contin- 
ue to serve as CCD teachers, as 
eucharistic ministers, lectors, 
choir members, pro-life advo- 
cates and a Dame of Malta. We 
have managed to travel in and 
out of the United States and to 
most of the continents. Our 
children, born between the years 
of 1947 and 1966, nicknamed 
the "Baby Boomers, " at last 
count, totaled one hundred and 
seventy-two. They have chosen 
higher education and interesting 
careers, and are themselves pro- 
ducing a bumper crop of our 
grandchildren, one hundred 
sixty-seven so far. The gift of the 
college experience that we all 
shared at St. Joseph's has indeed 
touched many lives, and its rip- 
ple effects are still outreaching 
anyone's expectations. Deo 
Gratias! Nancy O'Brien 
Schuder is president of Inner 
Wheel of Westchester, an orga- 
nization of Rotary wives.

agent who spent long hours col- 
lecting information for the

professions. Most of us are busy 
volunteers and we are all grate- 
ful for happy families, for sus- 
taining friendships, for the grace 
to endure sorrows and for won- 
derful memories of our dear 
deceased classmates. We feel 
blessed for the education, stan- 
dards and values that our St. 
Joseph family instilled in us and 
that we, hopefiilly, have nur- 
tured. Having survived the win- 



ter of '95, we rejoice in spring 
and summer joys of '96 and 
anticipate a significant anniver- 
sary in 2001.
