Class ReporterLaura Brautigan June, P.O. Box 655, Joshua Tree, CA 92252, (760) 366-8181, royjune655@cs.com. What a great reunion! It was our 60th. Our class started with 100 girls; we now have 39 and 11 attended: Margaret Hawkins Abbott, Winnie Wynkoop Carter, Pat Vicinus Cote, Emogene Fisher Martin, Jean Douglas Cook McNab, Dee Dee Boyle Morrow, Astrid Johnsen Reiley, Mona Staska Riley, Susan Pincoffs Tippett, Primmy Gundry Vining et moi. The Tremont was a magnificent setting for it had been a great Masonic Temple. The hotel supplied shuttle buses to the hospital, and we were so impressed with the School of Nursing building and the additions to the hospital. Food and speakers were excellent and all in all, it was one reunion never to forget. Besides, I think our class had the most representation except for the 50th reunion girls. We ended with going to Dee Dee’s lovely home for crab cakes, no less, and much reminiscing. I am sorry to report the death of classmate Jean Smith Cook.

Class ReporterMaddeline Angelone Schuldes, 3484 Woodbridge Court, La Crosse, Wisconsin 54601. “Goonie” (June Hanson) fell last winter and again in April. She also had a second hip fracture. There is nothing draining from her “shunt.” She says she is mentally alert and certainly sounded so but one could hear her depressed spirit with all that has transpired physically. I hope classmates will write to her. She is at Lorien Belair at 1909 Emmerton Road, Bel Air, MD 21015. Goonie mentioned that our classmate “Oper” is doing well but has trouble seeing very well. Apparently she broke her hip two years ago. Helena Lu-Affatt Kurban said her husband, Amal, was awarded “The Lifetime Career Educator Award” by the Dermatology Foundation at the Annual Meeting of the AAD. The award was established to honor the specialty’s great teachers.

Class ReporterBetty B. Scher, 7235 Brookfalls Terrace, Baltimore, MD 21209, (410) 653-4024, bbscher@comcast.net.Thanks to all of you who responded to my appeal for news. As always, the Class of 1950 comes through! Selfishly, my news first. I had my hip surgery and am now in some stage of recuperation. By that I mean that physically, I am doing great; I only wish that the emotional recovery were going as well. I have a rough time sleeping; my “git up and go” has “gone”; my stamina to stay on task is like a toddler’s. Believe me, patients should be told about this aspect of recuperation as much as the physical. A few of us have new addresses. Mary Agnes Hull Stewart is living in her own little home in the back yard of one of her sons and his family. Address is: 3527 S. Jim Minor Road, Haw River, NC 27258. Other news with her is the awaiting of possible twin great grandchildren. Ruth Stilz Whitmore and Marv have moved back to Baltimore and live in the Charlestown community in Catonsville. Right now they have two one-bedroom apartments (one of which is used as an office) and are waiting to get a two-bedroom apartment in about a year or two. New e-mail address is whitmoremr@verizon.net . Also, at the time of the letter, they were visiting their son Brad’s “lake house” in IN. Annette “Terrie”Theriault Preston writes she and Ted have “slowed down” but still manage to do a few things like a “great trip” to FL on the Auto Train in June plus visits with children and family. Anna Clair Junkin says she is two years post her hip replacement surgery and is doing well. Mackie McCown Kolb also has some “bone problems,” but otherwise is doing pretty well down in TX. Janie Shutts Pinkerton planned to celebrate her birthday with 11 of her crowd from Raleigh and Durham. She and Pinky planned to go on a Nova Scotia cruise, canceled last year due to illness. Other big news is that she is scheduled to become a great grandmother in early November. Mildred “Bunny” Barnard has almost finished renovating her trailer home, writes she is about the same except for a bit more “short-term memory loss.” From Cora Jane Lawrence comes a long note about her joy with the new nursing history and about her desire to attend Homecoming this year but has her doubts about making the attendance a reality. Although she lost both a beloved niece from leukemia and lymphoma and a nephew from an accident, the family did get together to celebrate her brother’s 50th wedding anniversary before all the tragedies hit. Meanwhile, she continues to enjoy her gardening, her mountain view, and her daily exercising. Doris Benjamin Carroll and husband have “slowed down” but have enjoyed a visit from two of her children who are back in the States after four years of missionary work in New Guinea. They also have enjoyed time at the beach and “antiquing.” Doris also keeps busy knitting, quilting and—recently—has gotten hooked on Sudoku puzzles. Greetings, too, from Lolita Beidelman from D.C. She left a message, but we have not gotten together one-on-one. The class of 1950 extends its deepest sympathies to the family of Sarah (Sallie) Mitchell Hunter, who passed away Oct. 13, 2006. If I have left anyone out, forgive me…this recuperation from surgery is more than a wee bit harder than I thought it would be. So we will blame all errors and omissions on that.

Class Report by Betty Stehly Cantrell. The Class of ’51 was represented by Rose Mary Burroughs Schulte, Betty Stehly Cantrell, Peggie-Louise Lee Craig, Lois Coxworth Gallagher, Matilda Snelling Smith, Priscilla Gray Teeter and Geraldine Ann Waybright Settle. We had a delightful time renewing memories of our years at Hopkins. The Committee did a great job of planning and orchestrating a wonderful Homecoming Weekend. We enjoyed spending time with Doris Armstrong and the class of ’46. We are looking forward to our 60th. Make plans now to join us.

’52

Class ReporterJackie Shaka, 2100 Pheasant Lane, Holladay, UT 84121, jackieshaka@gmail.com. Ann (Margaret) Hurlbrink (79 years young) has the honor of being the first to reply to the request for class news this time. Following graduation she had a “brief nursing experience.” For three summers she was a Girl Scout Camp nurse and also was a nurse for Nutri-System. There are three children, 10 grandchildren, and three great grandchildren (counting one due in December). Both she and Bob have had “excellent health throughout the years.” Her comment: “Nursing provides a great experience for life!” Faithful classmate Betsy Bivin wrote shortly after returning from a visit with son David and his children in Duluth. She is to have surgery for a rotator cuff repair. The other shoulder was done a few years ago. Fortunately her daughter, Margaret (and three-year old daughter), will assist her for a few weeks, then David will come for a week. Betsy plans to move to a nearby retirement community “early in 2007.” Helen (Whissen) Hayen writes from Katy, TX, that her husband died in 2005. Her daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren (ages 9-11) live only 10 minutes away. Helen’s twin sister, Anne Carder (JH SON ’53), moved from LA and now lives with Helen. “We’re going places, doing things and having a grand time. Yes, Anne has made a big difference!” Jan Wagner and husband, Don, along with five other Air Force couples planned a trip to Europe (Italy, Greece, etc.) in September. Jan did get to San Antonio and visited Mary Ann (Carr) Wendorf. “They talked and talked” (I’m jealous). Trish Kirkland and her husband remain in good health and enjoy living in town after having moved from the farm. Trish gardens, attends an exercise class and volunteers at a community clinic. She also helps her husband with historical research. Their offspring are “all over the country.” They keep in touch via e-mail. It has been 15 years since they were all together. Virginia McKnight Doolittle wrote from Plano,TX, where she now lives with her daughter and grandchildren. Ginny had a golf ball sized adenoma removed from a lung and has essential tremor, otherwise she is doing well. Her daughter suffers from painful tendonitis. Ginny helps with baby-sitting. As a nurse she worked in the newborn nursery. At one time she lived in a retirement facility but did not like it there except for the water aerobics. On Halloween of 2005 Bette Blome Winyall fell and broke her neck. This was treated by a Hopkins neurosurgeon by fusing the top three cervical vertebrae—she joked about having a screw loose…Her husband Milton had a corneal transplant by a new technique at Wilmer. Bette and Milton have shared 53 years together. Their children and grandchildren are doing well. Bette, Libby Derr and Marian Nash celebrated Homecoming #54 this fall. Libby Derr writes that except for some osteoarthritis in a shoulder (painful and somewhat limiting), she is generally well. She continues with church work and charitable volunteering. Libby and Marian Nash met for lunch at Bette Winyall’s and had “a great visit’. Libby was visited by Lisa O’Shea of the Hopkins Development office who brought a copy of the new history of the school: Our Shared Legacy. Libby writes “It is beautiful.” And how about Betty Droge Hixson…This active lady wrote that she is thankful “for this 82nd year”! Even with a VP shunt and a pacemaker, she went camping and hiking in UT and WY with her daughters. She has four children and four grandchildren. She wisely carried a book and when she got tired, she would sit down and read. They had a rented Jeep Liberty for transportation. Are you getting the picture? Next time I hope she’ll give me a call…

’55

Class ReporterMargie Barber Trever, 29504 Hawkes Hill Rd., Easton, MD 21601-8646, 410-822-0479.Char Lee Williams wrote that medical problems kept Bruce down winter and spring, but that in July they were able to board the Queen Mary 2 for the ride across the Atlantic with stops in Southampton, England and Hamburg, Germany. On the return trip, Bruce was able to walk the full distance between their stateroom and the library, a great improvement. Their daughter now has her PhD and will be returning to Germany, a major in the Air Force, overseeing working with high-risk children. Bruce’s mother died last November at the age of 105. At homecoming, Allie Sanborn, Joan Gillespie, and I represented our class at the annual meeting and luncheon, with Betsy McGeady and Rosemary Downes present at other functions. Betsy’s oral history is included in Our Shared Legacy. From the little I’ve read so far, I highly recommend its purchase. Check the alumni page of the JHUSON webpage (www.son.jhmi.edu) for Kathy McCormick Daughtry’s nursing cartoons.

’61

Class ReporterWendy Gehlbach, 1141 Naples Blvd., Jensen Beach, FL 3495, 773-229-0601, wendygehlbach@bellsouth.net. Ten members who attended our 45th reunion hereby issue a challenge to the remainder of our classmates: We’ll be here in 2011, will you? Several of us (who didn’t get lost on the way… ahem, Judy Pochop) attended the program introducing Our Shared Legacy at Enoch Pratt Library and were pleased to see a few Pre-Clins from the Class of ’61 pictured (hint: page 108). Following the cocktail party, we went our separate ways for dinner. We enjoyed the business meeting on Saturday, strolling the Inner Harbor and dinner at Chiapperelli’s in Little Italy.

Class Reporter—Cindy Rousso Paget, 9-5 Cheviot Place, Islington, Ontario M9A 2E3, Canada (cpaget@rogers.com). The Class of 1966 celebrated its 40th reunion with laughter, tears and joy while renewing old acquaintances and forging deep friendships with classmates who knew us “way back when.” As we get older, we need to remember those who helped us grow and become who we now are. Eighteen class members and five spouses joined us for our reunion dinner at the Hopkins Club. The food was great and the conversations eclectic. Class members came from as far away as Albuquerque, NM, and Toronto, Ontario, to celebrate and to catch up on all the class news. We were saddened to hear of the recent loss of Sally Malone Sowley and truly missed those who were not able to attend. We had a wonderful time and all said “they would not have missed this for the world!” We hope all will try to attend our 45th reunion in 2011 and our very special 50th reunion in 2016.

’86

Class report by Margaret Grasham Bevans. The class celebrated its 20th anniversary in the magnificent Anne M. Pinkard building at homecoming on 9/29/06. A bit different from the old Phipps building, many commented! Fifteen percent of the class attended the reception including Annina Arthes-Griggs, Bernie Keenan, Cecil Taylor, Clare Blau Montgomery, Marijoy Figueroa Keenan, and Margaret Grasham Bevans. As the first graduates of the SON as a degree-granting division of JHU, we were proud to represent our class and mingle among more recent graduates and those from years past (graduates from the1930s were in attendance)! Stories and pictures were shared to update each other on careers and family. Memories from the past generated a lot of laughter with a few pictures from the 1986 picnic where then professor Martha Hill and others were enjoying a day at the park. Plans were immediately made to locate ALL the pictures from our years together for sharing in 2011 at our 25th anniversary. Make your plans now! Lauren McKee Heard was kind enough to send a summary of the reunion questionnaires: Margaret Bevans is living in MD with her family, Keith, Carolyn, and Amanda. She received her PhD and is currently a nurse specialist doing research at the National Institutes of Health, Clinical Center. Nancy Davis-Griffin writes that she and her husband Bob have four children and five grandchildren! She is working part time at Your Health Adult Day Care Center, a Russian speaking community where she is able to be of service and learn new skills. Nancy is enjoying gardening, complementary healing, and her grandchildren. She remembers the adventure of being the “first” School of Nursing class, along with the tears, the smiles, laughter and challenges. She lives in San Francisco, CA. NHGHDG@aol.com. Marijoy Figueroa Keenan and her husband, David, have four children: Sarah (16), Patrick (14), Ryan (12), and Andrew (10). She is a case manager for Oakcrest Home Health in Baltimore. Her class memories include nursing student conventions and clinical rotations. I, Lauren, have been living in Boca Raton, FL for the past eight years with my husband, Tripp, and our three boys, Cameron (17), Sam (15) and Zach (12). For the past 11 years I have been an attorney for the Social Security Administration, working in the area of disability appeals, which allows me to use my nursing background on a daily basis, although not in a clinical setting. In honor of our 20th reunion, I took the NCLEX in June and became a licensed RN in FL after letting my nursing licensure lapse years ago when I started practicing law. What a great review that was! I enjoy walking, traveling, and trying to keep up with the kids’ schedules. Some of my favorite memories from nursing school years are of fun times with rowhouse mates Sue Germano, Deni Schwartz and Suzanne Scharnhorst. Remembering Sue Germano singing along to Johnny Mathis’ Christmas albums still makes me smile. I miss you all. I’d love to hear from you at Laurenkmh@aol.com.
