Living with the wonderful Lossing family and attending HGHS in 1960-61 opened my 18 yr. old eyes to a wide new world of excitement and opportunity.

Back home in Aust. enjoyed involvement with AFS Returnee Assoc'n., and in 1985 our family life was enriched by hosting a delightful Finnish girl exchange student.

Currently feel blessed to have achieved the elusive time/life balance with valued family time, including 5 precious grandchildren, minimal part time work and favourite leisure activities - tennis and reading.


Greatly looking forward to catching up with my former classmates at the reunion weekend.

I came to Greeley in 1956 and immediately fell in love with it. I thought I had died and gone to high school heaven!! I had been used to years of discipline from the Sisters of No Mercy in Forest Hills, where I grew up, and I couldn’t believe the freedom I had at Greeley. I was known throughout HS and beyond as a rock and roll fan and encyclopedia, but my favorite has always been “POP” especially the “Big Band”/”Post War” era. I always loved schmaltz and am always adding to my collection. I’m also a lifelong movie buff. I’ve been smoking since summer of ’51, drinking since summer of ’54 and I’ve never felt better. I’m totally lost in today’s high-tech world… no cell phone and I was left at the starting gate after years of computer classes. (about six months before I retired from Northern Westchester Hospital in 6/04, my job became totally computerized and I was given a fortunate break and allowed to do it “My Way” since I was so close to retirement). I’ve never owned a car in my life! (life long RED SOCKS FAN).

Greetings Class of 1961!!!  I am very excited about the reunion in October.  I was at the 20th and already it is the 50th-yikes!  After college graduation I taught phys. ed. at  Eastchester Jr. HS and met my husband who is Scottish born, Dublin, Ireland raised and NYU educated and we settled in Suffern, NY which is right on the NYSThruway--not far from Chappaqua.  We raised our two daughters while I subbed and my husband continued to teach at Eastchester.  We are now retired and play lots of golf here, Charleston, SC and the Adirondack Mts, where we have a camp.  We adore our three grandchildren who live in the Pocono Mts.  Hope to see everyone this October!!

I graduated from Foxhollow School in MA in 1961 and then went on to Elmira College.  Married my first husband in the early 60's and moved to Chapel Hill where we both attended UNC.  We had two children, Emily and Todd.  I worked in development at an independent school and did lots of volunteering mainly in fundraising. 

My daughter graduated from UVA, now lives in Chapel Hill and also works in development.  She has two children, Caroline and Jackson.  Caroline is in her first year at UNC and Jackson is in high school.  Todd graduated from the Univer. of CO, lives in the Denver area and has two teenage boys.  He is very IT.

I was separated from my husband in 1984 and subsequently divorced.  Worked in corporate relocation for 9 years.  Married my second husband in 1988.  We live in Raleigh and have between us 5 children and 10 grands ages 14-29.  They keep us busy.  We live with 2 Japanese Chin dogs.

Now I am retired and back to some volunteer work.  Also play a little golf, and enjoy gardening and needlepoint.  We have a second home on the NC coast where we enjoy happy days with family and friends.

Dear Classmates,
After spending the summer of 1961 painting houses with Riddick Semple, I left Chappaqua for Richmond, IN and Earlham College.  At Christmas of my senior year ('64) I married a classmate from Ridgewood, NJ.  After graduation in '65 we moved to Indianapolis and later had two lovely daughters (1969 & 1970).  I worked for an Indiana based family owned department store chain from 1965 through early 1974 in both Indianapolis and Fort Wayne, IN.  In 1972 my wife and I divorced amicably as our lives took separate ways.  In April,1974 I joined the Ohio Bell Telephone management team in Youngstown, OH (my birthplace!).  In June, 1974 I married Susan Smith of Indianapolis and she and her son Sean joined me in Ohio.  She still puts up with me 37 years later!  In 1977 we moved to Cleveland where I was doing a bunch of engineering stuff and closing old operator cordboards.

At the court ordered breakup of the Bell System in 1984, my job function became an AT&T function, making my focus a regional one around the Great Lakes with a boss in Chicago.  In August, 1984, I moved to an AT&T HQ job in Basking Ridge, NJ.  In August, 1987 I transferred to Chicago to spearhead a team implementing new technology in the network.  This led to a couple of promotions, more national focus, defining user requirements to Bell Labs groups, and a special project in Ukraine in 1992.  I maintained an office at home in Naperville, IL, but spent a lot of time on airplanes!  In January, 2001 I retired from AT&T after 28 years at age 57.  Since then, we sold our Illinois home in early 2002, built a house in Avon, IN just outside Indianapolis, where we are near 4 of Susan's 5 siblings(one lives in St. Louis) and where golf is very cheap.  I do a little consulting work on occasion, worked the US Census in 2010, spoil grandchildren as often as possible and travel whenever we can.  Marrying an Irish American woman gives you a hint that we spend much of our childrens' inheritance in Ireland (I have been 10 times since 1993, Susan 12 since 1969).  In 2009 we spent 3 weeks in Scotland and Wales chasing some of my heritage and I look forward to returning.  

Our kids are scattered:  eldest daughter is an educator in Chicago and has an 11 year old daughter;  younger daughter lives in Everett, WA with her husband, daughter aged 11 and son age 6.  Stepson Sean had been living and working in Minneapolis, MN for years, but has ruined our empty nest status when he had to move in due to no job, no money, no car... we all know this story.

I look forward to seeing everyone in October.
Best regards,
Bob

May 20, 1943 jim@norso.net Inventor / Biomagnetic Therapy Consultant pflclinic.com Married 2 2012-07-10 15:01:19
I have spent my career as an inventor / entrepreneur, developing and patenting technologies, and invariably having to start an entity to bring them to market.  Judi and I were married in 66, and we lived in Croton while I commuted to NYC as a hospital planning consultant.  We moved to Ann Arbor for graduate school, where I took off on an invention tangent, developing and patenting a half dozen technologies.  I stumbled into biomagnetics in 1994 when asked to develop a line of equine therapy devices.  In conjunction with friends at the U Mich. medical school we studied the mechanisms of magnetic therapy, and made significant discoveries that have led to a series of patents and technologies that relieve pain and inflammation, enhance circulation, and relax and lengthen muscle.  In semi-retirement I am morphing from manufacturer to research and clinical practice.  I build specialized devices that dramatically relieve arthritic joints, relieve muscle spasm, and a long list of conditions.  My website may be of interest to my friends with chronic conditions including arthritic hands and joints, fibromyalgia, trigger fingers, migraines, and a host of other conditions.  My non-medical adjunct therapies are drug free, and employ pulsed and static magnetic fields.  I am on a crusade to demonstrate the therapeutic efficacy.  I also am working to get my proprietary devices marketed nationally.

Judi and I live in the country on Lake Gaston mid way between Richmond Va and Raleigh NC.  We are only 60 miles up the interstate from Raleigh, and actually go down every Sunday for church, and  at least one mid week trip. 
We would love to hear from old friends passing through.

50 years! It's so hard to believe...except when I think of what's happened in those 50 years for me and in the world. Over that time a became a Registered Nurse, and then got a MA in counceling psychology and worked in both fields, with the last 20 years in a private practive doing psychotherapy in Northampton, MA. It was a rewarding career and good fit for me.

I was married to my first husband for 7 years until we divorced. That marriage produced two delightful daughters, who have been a true joy and light in my life and a son-in-law who has been a wonderful addition to the family! How fortunate!

I was married to my second husband for 14 years until he was killed in a bicycle accident. It was one of those difficult times that I imaging we have all experienced in some way or other in our 50 years since Greeley.

After college, I continued to be active in sports - field hockey, backpacking, swimming, horseback riding (trail riding, including pack trips in the U.S. and Canada and an equestrian trip in Costa Rico), and sailing - all of which gave me much pleasure. I finally had to give up active sports a few years age after having both hips and one knee replaced and a bum back. However, I've been able to find other interests to explore and enjoy to replace them, but I do miss being active. I am singing in two a coppella choral groups, reading, traveling, theater (going to, not acting in) participating in different study groups and playing with family and good friends. Life is interesting, satisfying and pleasurable. What more could I want.

I want to give the reunion committee a big BRAVO for all that you've done and to John for setting up this web site! Thank you all! I have also loved reading everyone's bio! I'm looking forward to the reunion and renewing old connections.

May 07, 1943 crownhouse297@aol.com recently retired from running Crown House for 35 years Divorced 2 2012-07-10 14:39:43
This year I have changed many things in my life. The biggest change is the closing of The Crown House along with my retirement.  You may remember when my mother started the business during our junior year in HGHS.  Running the store gave me the ability to raise my children in the town I loved and be close to my family and wonderful friends, many who were classmates at HGHS.  I have moved to the wonderful little city of St. Augustine, FL where I am surrounded by water, history and art. This is the home of Flagler College which has interesting things going on all the time. I live three blocks from the center of all this in the old city overlooking a small lake with incredible tropical birds, Heron, egret, pelican and ducks to observe from the window of my sunporch.  I am volunteering at the local hospital in the gift shop and I am hoping to start a job soon.  My new hometown is surrounded by water-ocean, the inland waterway and the St.John's river. This is my third month of being a Floridian and I hope to make some meaningful contributions to society while I am still around.  I will update this soon. Send Jane a MessageSend Jane a Message
