Nancy McDonald Legat

Yvonne J. Milspaw is almost ready to retire from 40-some years teaching college English and humanities. She plans to teach part time for the next three years, and then go on to full-scale retirement with husband Douglas Evans. They both travel a lot, so for retirement, she thinks they might just loaf and read. And Yvonne will want to knit cool scarves and sweaters. She continues to facilitate a book discussion group that has been together for almost 25 years. Their children are grown, educated, and on their own. They have yet to produce grandchildren but have provided Yvonne and Douglas with two grandcats and access to a small sailboat. Yvonne is senior professor of English and humanities at Harrisburg Area Community College.

Sheryl Gates Brindle was just north of Zion National Park in southwestern Utah, camping in their fifth wheel trailer, which is their home now. They left Florida in April and were making their way to San Diego, where their older son and his family live. Before heading west, they went up the East Coast as far as Pennsylvania, and stopped in the Newark, Del., area to visit Genie “Grace” MacClellan Hobson and husband Don. (Genie, Sheryl’s junior year roommate, started with our class but finished in three years with the Class of ’66.) Their younger son and his family were in Germany but expected to return within nine months and relocate to the desert southwest or California.

Nancy McDonald Legat is retired in Lexington, S.C., and does a little traveling with husband Dan. Their three daughters and sons-in-law, seven grandchildren, and great-grandson live close by. Nancy does a little writing and was learning to garden.
