Class of 1963 Fall 2018 Class Notes

Barbara Fowles Allen

Out of the office


Dear Classmates,

Only one piece of news arrived from a classmate this time. Jacqueline Lemme Cunningham retired as clinical neuropsychologist from The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia in 2016 after 17 years of service. “Following retirement, I’ve been employed as adjunct professor in the School of Arts and Sciences for The University of Pennsylvania on a part-time basis,” she wrote. “I’m great-grandmother to two boys, ages one and three years, and to one girl, age one year. Unsure at this time if I can make the Reunion, but will look forward to ’63 news!”

For those who were not at the Boothbay Harbor reunion in September, this will be my last column. The news is just not coming in to the university or to me. If you have something to send in, it can be put on the online section for ’63. Abigail Zelz ( has been my contact and will be able to post your news.

To those of you who have contributed over the years, I thank you. I feel I have gotten to know many of you through your emails and letters. That has been a pleasure. But the time has come for me to move on to other things. Doug and I plan to travel a bit and I do spend four months in Florida during the winter.

I wish all of you good health and happy days ahead.
