Class Notes

NEWS OF 1964

From Kathleen Cavanaugh:

I received a long note and clippings in a Christmas card from Gwynne Grey Gilbert, who says she and Stanley Gilbert '63 are still working and await their fifth grandchild in June. Their daughter Tori and her husband, Greg, are the excited expectant parents. With all the grandch\ildren 4 years old and younger, Gwynne says it's like having a child-care center at home.

Gwynne kindly sent my mother's obituary, which appeared in the Scranton paper. Moravian grads who were student- teachers at William Penn School on Main Street might remember my mom, who was the school crossing guard for more than 40 years at Main and Fairview streets. The Florence Cavanaugh Memorial Library Fund was established at William Penn School in her name. She loved those children as though they were her own!

Gwynne and Stosh were glad to see Molly Krater Dinneen and her husband, Jim, who stopped in Clarks Summit on their way back home to North Haven, Conn., after visiting Molly's family in Schuylkill Haven.

I had a surprise e-mail from David Boyer, who says he is a semi-retired ER doctor/family physician in Berthoud, Colo. He says he keeps busy with four English sheepdogs. He also restores vintage race cars and competes in the Historic Stock Car Racing Series.

From the Alumni House:

Ray Pfeiffer Sr. has sold his home of 37 years in Stroudsburg and has made Hilton Head his permanent home.

Judy Morecz Simpson and her family surprised Judy's mother, Mary Morecz (longtime employee of the College's Business Office) with a 90th birthday party in January in the atrium of the Priscilla Payne Hurd Academic Complex.

NEWS OF 1962

From Merr Trumbore:

I received a nice e-mail from Tom Fisher. After graduation, he began his career with Bethlehem Steel and earned an M.S. in chemistry at Lehigh University. After a successful run at "The Steel," he retired in 1993 and went to work for another company in Milwaukee. Then he joined a firm in Warren, Ohio, and finally retired in 1999.

He and his wife, Claire, raised three children, two daughters and one son, and have three grandchildren. In addition to their expertise in grandchildspoiling, they keep busy with golf, travel, and cooking. They visit national parks in the eastern and western parts of the country, and they highly recommend Yellowstone and the Everglades. They plan a trip to Italy sometime this year.

They live in Orlando, Fla. Though hurricanes devastated the Southeast last fall, their property suffered only minor damage. They are grateful to be among the survivors.

Francis Amigo wrote that he retired in 1995 from New York State government after working in several different state agencies during his 32-year career. After a couple years of home improvement projects and golf, he now spends several days a week with a lobby for retired New York State and local government workers. He and his wife, Charlotte, have three daughters, who have blessed them with eight grandchildren. Francis and Charlotte still have relatives in Bethlehem and visit the city several times a year.
