From Mary:

Edith Hower Sikorsky is still living in her own home in Danielsville, Pennsylvania, but not alone; her daughter lives with her.

Two of our classmates have died recently; Sister Felicia Tanzella and Leah Victor Silver.  Leah came to our 60th reunion and was very impressed by the changes made since 1942.

I was also sad to hear the Peggy Lutz Grey passed away in March. At Christmas she had written me about her life at Longwood Gardens near Pittsburgh. She had ended her term on the Residence Council, and then she began to play Nintendo Wii Bowling. She also gave talks about Moravians in early Pennsylvania. People seem to know more about Moravians in Old Salem but don’t know about the Christmas City of Bethlehem, PA!

Unfortunately we have to report the passing of another one of the 1942 classmates, Sr. Felicia Tanzella,  who died on  January 22. Her niece wrote that after earning her B. S. Felicia went on to earn a M. A. from Catholic University and an Ed. S. degree from Rutgers University.  Felicia entered the religious life in 1944.  She taught math and science for over 53 years, retiring in 1999.  Her life is measured by the all the triangles in the arch that surrounded her and those that she inspired. A memorial mass will held at St. Anthony's of Padua, Easton PA on Saturday March 6, at 1 PM, fellowship to follow in the church hall.
