In December 2007, the sudden loss of our ’65 friend and classmate Maggie (Coyne) Camp, initiated a chain of events that resulted in this photo. A group of classmates organized a “Maggie Memorial” to help friends find closure to Maggie’s death. Thirteen classmates gathered at Venango Catholic High School for a memorial Mass. Classmates who hadn’t seen each other for years rekindled old friendships.
Pictured in the photo are Marilyn (Camp) Henderson, Panni (Bauer) Fry, Joan (Stover) McGreevy, Paula (Wydro) Phenicie, Suzanne (Duda) Dolecki, and Karen (Fitzgerald) Wander. This group wound up in Cancun together – catching up on missing years and trying new things like snorkeling – who would have thought?!
In summary: Value your friendships. It’s never too late to contact old friends with the wonders of email and internet.
