Thanks to everyone who returned the questionnaire I sent out. So nice to hear from you! * Elaine Johnson Wing lives in Farmington, Maine. She lost her husband in 1987 but lives in her own house with help from family and friends as she lost her eyesight two years ago. She has eight children in Maine, two in New Jersey, and one in Florida, plus 15 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren. She’s currently waiting for a hip replacement. She used to be an avid gardener and a hospital, food closet, and church volunteer. Up until 2010 she spent part of the winter in Florida. Her daughter Jane filled out the questionnaire I had sent and added the comment that her mother is still a wonderful conversationalist. * Corinne “Judy” Jones Zimmerman lives in Essex Junction, Vt. She and her husband have five children, 14 grandchildren, and seven great-grandchildren, but the last number will expand to 10 by the end of the summer with the arrival of one boy and twins (one boy and one girl). Last year she was given a great party celebrating her 90th birthday. She is very proud of her family as they all have college degrees and most have advanced degrees. * William Hibel lives in Palm Beach, Fla. His grandson and his wife, who were professors at Perdue, have moved to the University of California at Davis. His granddaughter completed her training as a nurse and now works at Florida Hospital in Orlando. * Eleanor Eisberg Watson lives in Limerick, Maine. She has a daughter who is a successful remedial math and reading teacher. Eleanor lives with a male friend in a 200-year-old house that they had a great time restoring. She paints a little and writes plays based on life in Limerick, where her mother and grandmother lived. She is one of the founders of the Limerick Historical Society. * I received word that James Atwater passed away in January 2012. * Barbara Baylis Primiano lives in Barrington, R.I. She has three grandsons and a granddaughter who is earning her master’s in psychology. Two grandsons will be college seniors, one at Washington University in St. Louis and one at Richmond. The third grandson works in Bethesda, Md. Barbara plays bridge and volunteers at church. * Elwin Hussey lives near the family store in Windsor, Maine, in the summer and in Kurtestown, Hawaii, from October to May. His wife died in March 2012. While in Maine he works on a history of Windsor in 1940 titled Remembrances of 1940. He says, “In 1940 I enrolled as a freshman at Colby, followed by my first-year problems… two major and two minor warnings first semester!” He says his hearing is so bad that he’s limited to one-on-one conversations and he gives up on about 50 percent of the people. He maintains that he is getting “cranky.” * I have just returned from a two-week sailing trip with my son on the Baltic Sea visiting Sweden, Finland, Estonia, and St. Petersburg, Russia. The ship was a four-masted clipper ship accommodating about 80 people. Fantastic experience.
