MaryLee Bradley
remembers class-
mate Eleanor Babco fondly. “‘Tootie,’
as we called her, was at IC for over
three years. She lived in Palmerton,
PA. She had a very successful ca-
reer and traveled around much of the
world, even China, as a consultant.
She was one of our very well-liked
and ‘down to earth’ classmates.”
Eleanor passed away in September
2013.

Bobbi Giordano Costigan
writes,
“Several classmates, Noreen Cassidy
Cheleden, Beth McGeever O’Neill,
Ferdie Berghardt Lamb, Kathy Burns
Mayglothling, Linda Becker Long, Jan
Martens Vecsi, Andy Vescia Foldessy,
Joan Mossolino, and I gathered in
New York City on January 4th and
5th for our annual reunion. We en-
joyed seeing Broadway shows, having
lunch and dinner, and just catching
up on family news and activities dur-
ing 2013. Unfortunately, we missed
three girls who were not able to join
us—Janet Mancini Chace, Grace
Magee Lewin, and Sharon Blattner
Denero. A good time was had by all!
We are now looking forward to our
50th reunion at IU in the spring of
2015.”

Anne Marie Phillips Martin
writes,
“Chuck and I travelled to Norway,
Finland, the Shetland Islands,
Iceland, the Isle of Mann, Argentina,
Uruguay, the Falkland Islands, Ant-
arctica, and China last year. While in
Antarctica, I took a song-writing class
during our sea days. I composed a
piece for my grandchildren, and a
friend wrote the music and recorded
it on her album in Nashville last
June. My Life Song appears on the
album So Much More by Joan Maute.
I have seven grandchildren at present
with another due in July, and I write
a book for each one after I see their
personalities and traits. Retirement
in Arizona is wonderful. Life is good.”
Agatha Sienicki Pope
writes, “Doug
and I recently celebrated our 40th
anniversary with our children and
their families. We have since moved
to Florida—“becoming clichés,” he
says—and are taking bridge lessons
from Jackie Rinaldi Altschuler at the
Naples Bridge Center, which she
manages. We are expecting two more
grandchildren who will join our five
girls and one boy by early summer.”

December 8th, 2013, the feast of

classmates, I attended the memorial
Mass for Dr. Daniel Machon—Dan.
His passing leaves a void in my life,
and in so many others too, who had
the privilege of having his friendship,
support, and interest through these
