Susan Kovacevic and I are bridges partners and the best of friends. I swim, do Qigong and walk regularly. I was an avid bird watcher and love going to the movies.

School Story:

I really enjoyed high school. I hung out with Carol Egan, Judi Fracchia, Bobbie Venturi, Marilyn Olivieri, and Patti Shock among others. We had a car club called The Schemers. In high school I dated Bob Sage and Tom Brackett. I was in Mr. Smith's typing class. I usually got A/D. I was very fast and accurate on the typewriter. I grew up in the Rockridge District. My father died in 2015 (98), followed by my mother (96) in 2018. I live in the same neighborhood where I grew up. I also attended Rockridge Grammar School and Claremont Junior High School.

Dear Classmates. I had a nice conversation with Carla Dodge yesterday. She and Jim moved to Reno five years ago to be close to their daughter whose has two children ages 3 and 5. Jim died on June 1, 2019. He stopped eating and died two weeks later. There was no obituary. Jim was very generous throughout the years. We frequently met at his and Carla's home for our reunion meetings. I was pleased to see several of you post memories of him on the website. Hope to see you in September! Be well. Sherry

Judi was my maid-of-honor in 1961. We remained friends throughout. She had a wonderful husband and daughtrer, Lew and Jennifer and two young grandchildren. Several graduates including Judi have met yearly during the holiday season in December. Judi was a superb cook. I will miss her.
