Greetings, classmates! Many of you sent news in response to the questionnaire. Following are some highlights. Believe it or not, there is more news to report in the next issue. Thank you all so much. * Lillian Meyer Haning joined our class as a transfer in 1948. She continues to live in the “creek-side” home she and her husband, Jim, built 45 years ago in Palo Alto, Calif. Unfortunately, Jim passed away many years ago, but Lillian enjoys a busy life among supportive long-term neighbors, mostly women now. They are involved in many activities and enjoy each other’s company. Lillian has three children, all grown, and her grandchildren are on the cusp—one in college, two going next year, and the fourth close behind. One granddaughter turned down the opportunity to travel to Africa with her mother this summer in favor of a high-intensity program in chemistry and physics at UC Santa Cruz. Lillian’s trip of a lifetime was a visit to China, but a walking tour in southwest England is a close second. She has joined Elderhostel jaunts in various parts of our country but thinks now it’s about time for a trip through the New England states. * Aaron E. Kaye (formerly Kanovitz) came to Colby in 1946 but left in 1948 due to family circumstances. He spent the next eight years working as a civilian and staff sergeant in the military. In 1955 he enrolled at Boston University, majoring in biology and graduating in 1957. He married in 1956. In 1962 he graduated from Tufts Dental School and began a general practice. He and his wife have been married 58 years and have three children, eight grandchildren, and four dogs. He spends his time reading, shopping, and at doctors’ offices. He teaches at Harvard School of Dental Medicine and winters in Florida, where he does some elementary-school tutoring. * Beverly Holt Wiegand lives in a “lovely Christian” retirement community in Shoreline, Wash. She and her friends enjoy fellowship often, engaging in Bible studies and church activities. Bev’s husband died in 1990. She has two sons—Rick in Fairfield, Conn., and Randy, who lives in Guam with his wife, Mizpah, and two children, Ben and Sabrina. Her hobbies are reading and studying. * Janet West Williams loves her home in Crosswicks, N.J. She works part time for the family’s construction company. Her husband, Harry, broke his pelvis last October. No surgery—but now he is working to be on a cane instead of a walker. They have three children and seven grandchildren, and they have been married 62 years—“my, my,” says Jan. They spend as much time as possible at their camp at Blue Mountain Lake in the Adirondacks. She enjoys reading and swimming, belongs to a bridge club and a book club, and takes college courses. They have traveled to Hawaii, Alaska, Italy (three times), England (three times), and Bermuda, as well as throughout our country, including national parks. Jan volunteers at the Crosswicks Library and for the Philadelphia Yearly Meeting (Quaker). Busy gal! * Leanne Shibles Eaton lives in Southport, Maine, where she entertains many family groups from “away” who love to visit and fish. So far none of her family has gone to Colby; she says they are all growing up so fast. She works at a very busy local thrift shop, and her hobbies are painting, sailing, and fishing. She has traveled to Canada and enjoyed Viking Cruises. * Frank Jones reminisced about living in the vets’ apartments—“military barracks on Mayflower Hill”—with his wife, Frances, from 1948 to 1950. Sadly, Frances passed away in 2010. They had two daughters and one son, and now there are three grandchildren. Frank lives in an independent unit in a retirement community in Nashua, N.H. His hobbies include watching football, baseball, and golf. He turned 91 in September.
