1972
G. Elizabethe Mayhew enjoys teaching and creating classes for judicial branch employees, being a class agent, and visiting Sage through the years. She’s taken on more volunteer responsibilities at church and is learning a great deal.

Eileen Meltzer is a nurse practitioner for Planned Parenthood in Kingston, NY. She loved living in Spanish House junior and senior years because doing so felt like living at home — everyone living there was like family.

I received an e-mail from Linda McLean prior to Reunion. She has retired after a career in the museum field. She began as a docent at the home of Robert R. Livingston and ended as director at Olana, home of the Hudson River School artist Frederic Edwin Church. She is settling into a new home and getting established in a new community. She keeps her hand in the museum field by sitting on a couple of boards in the Capital District. Linda reports that Crystal Robbins Monteverd plans to retire and that Loueen Whalen is a physical therapist. Since Linda was not at Reunion, I can only assume she got lucky at the casino in Monte Carlo: “If you don’t see me, know I have extended my stay and am lifting a glass of fine wine toasting all of you from somewhere in France!”

Sherry Egan Schrade reports that after more than 29 years of teaching high school math, she has retired to become a full-time grandma. In 2003, their son was killed in an automobile accident. Sherry, few of us can imagine that pain.

Mary Frederick Monk retired in 2010 after 34 years of elementary teaching. She is an active member and past president of the PTA and Montgomery-Fulton Reading Council. A former trustee of the Canajoharie Library and Art Gallery, she is on the board of The Children’s Aid Associa¬tion with Carol Palombi Douglas. She has traveled to all 50 states plus to the Caribbean, Australia and New Zealand.

There will be more updates from the Reunion surveys in the future. Remember, only you can write your life, so keep your classmates up to date.

Hope everyone's summer was great! Did anyone get together? Have you joined "Russell Sage College 1977" on Facebook yet? There are great pictures and comments from Reunion.

The Friday night of Reunion, I did get an email from Terry Schlatter and Diane Moberg. They had a mini reunion together. "Mo" could not attend because she had recently had a total knee replacement. Terry said Mo is “climbing the corporate ladder” at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. One daughter is starting physical therapy school, another is 6'5 and plays hoops at Penn State.

I have two grown sons: one in banking, and the other a pastry chef outside of Washington, DC.

I received sad news from the alumnae office. Karen Deiber has passed away. I have no other information at this time and if I receive anything I will post it on our Facebook page. We all need to take care of ourselves! Enjoy the fall and send me any information.

I, Sharon Wuinee Spicer, Pat Sirois Kuldell and Theresa Ferrer Laraia enjoyed our summer reunion hosted by Carol Steria Heft ’82 in Allentown, PA. This reunion has been taking place for 21 years and each year it is hosted by a different alumna. This reunion is a family event and our kids, 14 in all, look forward to it as much as we do.

Next June it will be our 30th class Reunion. If you have ever experienced a Class of 1983 Red Devil Reunion, you know we have a great time celebrating! If you have never come back, please consider it in 2013 for our 30th!

Happy birthday to those of us Horseshoes that hit the Big 5-0 this year! It's been fun seeing many of you on Facebook as you celebrate your birthday. I was fortunate to join four of my best Horseshoe friends in celebrating our birthdays on a cruise to Canada. Elizabeth Ashley O'Connor, Kathleen Pacyna Thompson, Wendy Carvalho Krauss, Penny Manly and I, Amy Young, spent five days on the Carnival Glory in July, cruising from Boston, MA to Saint John, New Brunswick and Halifax, Nova Scotia. In true Class of '84 style, we not only used our demitasse spoons correctly, we left them on the table and didn't attempt to smuggle them out in the sleeves of our dresses. Emma Willard, Olivia Slocum Sage and Phyllis Hoyt would be proud! And, having a learned a thing or two from Rally Day, we dressed in style for evening meals in the "Golden Dining Room." Unfortunately, Penny forgot to pack her famous Rally Turban, but I'm hoping it will show up on a future cruise. It was a perfect way to reconnect with great friends and celebrate our milestone birthdays!

Hello Red Devils. Many of you received friend requests on Facebook from Terry and Dawn. We are hoping to gather updated information on the lives of our classmates, so feel free to share as often as possible.

Using our “keen investigative skills” on Facebook we learned that Jackie Malin Steele and Kathleen Hanrahan Olchowski are once again classmates. They are finishing their last year of nursing school attend Capital Community College in Hartford, CT.

Brenda Bateson Bannon’s son and Gretchen Meyer O’Connor’s oldest daughter started college.  My daughter started graduate school and works as a graduate assistant advising art education students. My son is a candidate for admission to the Academy at West Point and is hoping to be a part of the 2013 freshman class.

We heard from Tory Ertman Kane. She was working as a RN in New York until her husband was transferred to Shanghai, China. Her oldest son is in college in the U.S. Her youngest son will attend college in the U.S. extending his studies in China an additional year. Her daughter is entering the 10th grade at an international school. She graciously offered to host any visitors or provide any travel tips to the area. Tory can be reached at +18452336535 or tvglgw@yahoo.com.

We would love to hear about your lives, your jobs, kids, families. Be well.

1999

Class_of_99.jpgI, Amy Carlotto Zuckett have been running! I completed the Color Me Rad (see photo at left) and Pittsburgh Steelers/Gatorade 5Ks. Two races in eight days, not bad for a beginner! I finished the Steelers race in 28:30 and came in 49th out of 190 in my age division. Not bad for my first timed race and training for about 5 weeks. I still don’t love running, but I love when it’s over and I love how my calves look! I plan to complete a race a month through December and then will continue to train for the Pittsburgh half marathon.
