Alumnae News

This page has been reformatted to allow each new posting to be listed separately. Since there is a limit to how many postings appear on a page, you will need to click on "older posts" (lower right corner of each page) to see previous posts. There are lots of posts hiding there... don't miss them!  Alternatively, you can go to the BLOG ARCHIVE at the bottom of the left sidebar and search for postings by date and title.
In most cases, you should be able to click on a photo to enlarge it.

Laura Siracusano Dudek Recovering from Heart Surgery

Thoughts and prayers for Laura Siracusano Dudek following her recent open heart surgery.  Her aortic valve, mitral valve and two coronary arteries were damaged by the mantle radiation that she had almost 50 years ago.  Laura underwent surgery at Brigham & Women's Hospital in Boston and, while her hospital stay was much longer than expected, she's finally home and on the road to recovery.  Love and hugs being sent her way!

Sorry to miss the Fall Luncheon, but Paul and I just returned from Africa where we experienced an incredible Safari. Visited three countries, "safaried" at two different lodges and visited Victoria Falls. I am keeping busy traveling, golfing, and volunteering in several activities.

I will be having lunch with Ginny Apuzzo at P & G's in a couple of weeks. I'm sure we'll be looking up at the House on the Hill with lots of memories to share.
Enjoy the annual luncheon and remember me to those from '63.

Roni Cojac Mintz

Hi, I graduated in 1965 and married Alan 2 weeks after graduation. We celebrated our 50th with a mini wedding given by our children and my 101 year old father. This past summer we continued the celebration when we took the family on an  Alaskan cruise.

In 2017 I will celebrate 35 years working at  Children's Healthcare Of Atlanta. After teaching "well" children it has been quite a journey  working with hospitalized children. They are truly an example of courage and strength.

Happy Holidays to all.

Midge Dube

To all my Email Friends --- thank you so much for the prayers, cards and phone messages that made my reverse colon surgery on September 23,2016 such a wonderful success.... As many of you know from my daughter Stacey's postings, I came home from the Saratoga Hospital on Friday Sept. 30 and will be getting the 38 plus staples out of the stomach incision this coming Friday, Oct 7.... Still gathering my strengthen and trying to do more walking in the house and eventually outside once I am permitted to do so....Can't believe what an emotional year this has been...I am blessed to even be alive from the original septic poisoning and physical damage that it did to my colon and stomach...God has been good to me, thanks to all of your prayers..... Looking forward to a healthy year to come.... I will especially miss my College Sorority Theta Phi reunion is Oct 16 but plan on being there next year...Have fun Thetas and know I will be thinking of all of you...I am looking forward to rejoining my social groups and especially swimming exercise classes at the YMCA....thanks again for all your prayers and support, I am truly to all my friends & family, Midge
