After receiving a BA in history from the University of Massachusetts I went to NYC. I met my Dutch husband while studying nursing at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center. From there I followed my heart and spent the next 40 years in the lovely city of Amsterdam where I raised 3 daughters. I now spend half of my time in NYC where two of my daughters and two grandsons live. Amsterdam remains my official home and from there I travel to London to visit my third daughter and my youngest grandson.
Hello Classmates!

In this section, we're hoping you'll share a recent photo of you or you and your family and include a little bio about yourself.  In other words share with us the story behind you - the person.  What path did you take to get to today?  Included is a great example of what we mean. Take a look above at Gail Sarty Meerschwam's recent post on Classmates.  We will also be adding your content to a Memory Book for all of us.  Happy writing!

Hypnotherapist InnersourceSeattle.com Married 2 2016-09-23 13:20:55
A lot has happened in the 50 years since leaving Tantasqua, so to reduce it down to a short paragraph is not an easy task. After receiving ny nursing degree I moved to WA State (where I currently live) where I became certified as a Psychiatric Nurse. In 1985 I studied hypnotherapy and, because of the power of this modality to bring true healing I pursued it as a career and still work part-time and teach. I will be teaching in Tokyo in October. Tom, my loving husband of 45 years, and I have 2 wonderful children and 4 grand-children who all live close to us. We took in troubled foster teens for many years and adopted one boy at 18. He is in N.Y. wiith his wife and 3 children. I am vice-president of an LGBT running club which I thoroughly enjoy, and have a great passion for traveling.  I have visited over 40 countries and taught in China, Japan and Australia. Tom and I live in an old hunting lodge overlooking Lake Washington where we have abundant gardens filled with fruit, vegetables and flowers. Beside gardening I love hanging out with kids  grandkids, friends, running, hiking, biking, reading, learning and just being alive! Send Linda a MessageSend Linda a Message

I’ve been blessed with a loving family and life-long friends.  Married and divorced and then married Ken Barone, my husband of 34 years.  He passed away in 2008.  We enjoyed many years of sailing, traveling, and lots of parties.  I made the decision to retire last October (2015) and closed my health care consulting business after 30 years.  I’ve lived in Hull, Massachusetts, a beautiful seaside community for the past 22 years.  Am an active member of the Hull Garden Club, the Hull Community Garden, as well as, the Hull Lions and have held various club positions.  Love to travel, garden – particularly container gardening, cook, and read.  Spending as much time with family and friends is a joy.  Of most importance and that which brings such pride is to experience the innocence, intelligence, creativity, compassion, dreams, and growth of my two granddaughters.  As hoped, life is good once again.

I moved from Massachusetts with my BFF Jan Gardner in 1969 to live in California.  In 1973, I met and married a Marine and he took me away to live in exotic places like Ft. Siil, Oklahoma.  We stayed in the military for 30 years moving every 1-3 years.  After retiring from the military, we ran a non-profit that helped young enlisted families and it was probably one of the most rewarding things that we have ever done.  We have recently retired for the second and final time and are doing some traveling.  We both love the National parks and are trying to travel to all that are in the west.  I enjoy hiking, my husband not so much, but he is a good sport and comes along with me.  Life is good!!!!

Hi all, I can't believe 50 years have passed.  I don't feel that old.  After spendiing 3 years in the Army from 1968 to 1971 I went back to college at Nichols in Dudley.  Spent the next 30 years in the Information Technology industry.  I have two sons and 5 grandchildren.  4 young ladies and finally a grandson.  I live in Southbridge now and am enjoying retirement.  I keep busy being involved with the Sturbridge Lions Club.  Have been a member for 42 years.  Our club just celebrated it's 50th Anniversary this past April. 
 
Looking forward to seeing everyone.

After leaving Massachusetts I traveled throughout the US and spent two years living in England. I moved to California in 1974.  I founded TSU staffing in 1979.  When I sold TSU to a national staffing firm in 1999, we had grown to nine offices.  My husband Frank and I own Grasso Vineyard, producing a high-end Cabernet Sauvignon in Napa Valley. We also make a delicious virgin olive oil and limoncello.  Our three children and three grandchildren live nearby and we love spending time with them. I'm very active with golf, playing in local and state tournaments and enjoy walking my little Aussie Ellie. Frank and I are members of the International Wine and Food Society. We love entertaining, traveling and having fun on our competitive Bocce Team "The Rock'n Rollers".  Currently, I am the President of the Napa Valley Country Club.

After attending a few colleges, I finally graduated with a degree in Elementary Ed. I taught first in Sturbridge, and later in Alaska, Virginia, California, and Florida. While on summer vacation in Hawaii, I met my future husband Harry...a Navy pilot. We did the military traveling life, raised two kids and finally settled in Florida. We now spend part time in Tellico Village,TN (near the Smoky Mts) and the rest in Delray, FL. Life's a beach!
I enjoy traveling, hiking, and playing golf, tennis, and pickleball. I'm looking forward to seeing ya'll.

Retired Committed Relationship 2 2016-08-07 22:58:53
After graduation I started working at Tantasqua in the office using my skills from my business courses! I married Bob Landreville and we had 2 daughters who also graduated from Tantasqua. I now have 2 grandsons, one that is a senior at Tantasqua, the other a junior at Bentley University. Bob passed away in 2007 of esophageal cancer. We were happily married for 38 years.
Two years ago I decided to look for the young man I dated before Bob, found him on Facebook living in Florida. I flew to see him and we decided to give it another try. I retired from Tantasqua after 40 years, moved from my home in Sturbridge after 55 years to rekindle my relationship with Jeff Collins who at one time lived in Wales, MA and also attended Tantasqua.
We enjoy our life in Punta Gorda, Fla, we are engaged and plan on marrying on July 1, 2017, 50 years after our first date. During  my leisure time I enjoy reading, adult coloring and going golfing with Jeff, but I only keep the scores for him and his friends!
