NOTES
We still live in Berwyn and enjoy
our house at the shore. The boys
like boating and water sports. We
have a home in Corfu, Greece,
where my husband was born and
raised, and travel there twice
a year, which has been fun. If
anyone is traveling to that part
of the world, let me know.”
Catching up with some fellow
alums,
Helen Cattalo Halpin
attended a luncheon in May
hosted by
Loreta Chirico Perthes,
and included
Pat Panichelli
Papiez,
who was visiting
from Idaho,
Kathy Mulhern
Clark, Pat McGarry Kraeer,
and
Ginny Derham Sullivan.
Cathy Marrella Caprio
and
husband Vince announce with
great joy the birth of their first
grandchild, Ella Grace
Mattmiller, born on April 22, 2014.
Denise Schmid Doyle
continues
as chief investment officer at
Brandywine Financial Services
Corporation in Chadds Ford, PA,
specializing in commercial real
estate acquisition, sales, prop-
erty management, and account-
ing. Expanding her role with
a Brandywine affiliate, Denise
recently successfully passed the
SEC Series 7 General Securities
Representative Exam. She says,
“We had an early summer get-
together in Wildwood Crest, NJ.
Izanne Leonard-Haak
continues
to be a managing principal with
Health Management Associates,
a national health care consulting
firm. Her major areas of focus
are assisting with implementa-
tion of electronic health records
and the expansion of Medicaid
managed care. In her spare time,
she entertains her 1-year-old
granddaughter, Teagan, find-
ing this one of the most enjoy-
able experiences of her life.
Mary McCusker Harkins
writes, “I
continue as principal of
Archbishop Wood High School in
Warminster, PA, a co-ed school of
1,100 students that is part of the
Archdiocese of Philadelphia. I am
starting my 45th year in educa-
tion, 16th year as principal and
10th year at Wood. I still truly
enjoy my job and the children I
work with. Our school has had
many successes: National Merit
finalists, state championships,
robotics championships, band
championships, and has had
truly great kids. I will have been
married for 39 years in October.
I have three children: Madeleine
is a Social Studies teacher who
was just appointed as assistant
principal at Notre Dame Academy
in Villanova, PA; Caroline is an at-
torney at Stradley Ronan in Phila-
delphia and is married to Seth
Gorman; and Marian is a prop-
erty manager for University City
Housing. All three girls are happy,
healthy, and living in Center City
Philadelphia. The most signifi-
cant event in recent history is the
death of
Mary Murphy Haslam
on
March 1, 2014. It is very hard
to say goodbye to someone who
has been such a major part of
your life. In June,
Pat Maguire
Morris
and I visited with Mary’s
husband Frank and her daughter
Megan (in from Phoenix) and her
son Brendan and his wife (in from
NYC). It was fun telling stories
about life at IC. It is a period of
time that Mary’s children didn’t
know about, and of course have
now lost their storyteller. It is im-
portant for all of us to share our
college memories; they are from
a time that will not be repeated.
I teach U.S. history, and when I
talk about Kent State and the fact
that most universities shut down
in early May, I recount what we
did at IC: we had Mass. It was
certainly not typical, but it was
typical for our lives at that time!”
Kathy McGowan Kopf
officially
retired from teaching on June
13th and is expecting a new
grandchild in November.
LouAnn Cipriani Luongo
and
classmates
Sharon Reed Zogby,
Carol Cherry Otis, Janet Ficcadenti
Izzo, Barbara Crea Shannon, Betsy
Giordano McKinnon, Laurie Reilly
Kennedy,
and
Marie Ann Cambriato
Mazzafro
went to Savannah, GA
in March to celebrate birthdays.
They had a great time and can’t
wait to plan another trip.
Kathy Speaker MacNett, Esq.
reports that her daughters,
Colleen and Pam, have pur-
chased homes within a block of
hers in downtown Harrisburg,
PA. Kathy continues to walk
to her downtown law office,
Skarlatos Zonarich, LLC.
Anne Meister
writes, “Alums meet
in Germany! I found out that my
visit to Bavaria might overlap
with
Loreta Chirico Perthes’
visit
during the summer. Thanks to my
brother George who suggested
a wonderful meeting place in
Murnau, which is in the foothills
of the Alps, about 30 km south of
the wonderful town of Diessen
am Ammersee (where my brother
now lives), and about 60 km from
where Loreta and her husband
Carl were staying at Schliersee.
Actually, Loreta met my brother
back in 1971, when six of us
French majors from IC (now IU)
traveled together for almost
three months. Sad to hear that
IU will no longer offer a French
major. We Americans need to
learn other languages and IU
could set an example for this.”
Joan Hughes Moriarty
shares, “I
often smile as I recall the happy
days at IC. I am still the interim
dean of education at (what is
now) Caldwell University, and
teaching about school reform in
the doctoral program in the fall!
Our daughter and her family live
30 miles from us, so our three
grandchildren are close by. Our
son has joined the family funeral
home business, so we get to
see him all of the time! We were
