Phyllis Quimby Anderson
There is very little news from me because I have had none. My regulars have either passed away or are unable to continue UMW correspondence. I am in the handicap group of 90 year olds at 96 but still trying to stay a little active with help of 4 of my local Children, who stay with me much of the time when they can fit it in with their jobs. They also cook for me and drive me when I need transportation. I am Lucky! I I do a little volunteering and play bridge. I have 12 Great Grandchildren. Two live in Germany, two in Virginia and the rest in New Jersey so I really miss them.
Patricia Mathewson Spring
I was saddened to hear of the passing of Anna Ruth “Anne” Jones Wilson in February 2019. I remember vividly the good time we had at the ’06 reunion and how our daughters became friends.
Our class doesn’t have a lot of news, and many of the girls I knew are not with us anymore. I gave up on email, but I can still be reached via the firstname.lastname@example.org email address; your updates will be forwarded to my home address via regular mail.
As for me, Patricia Mathewson Spring, I’m still at home with the help of my children, some domestic help, a cane, and a walker. Very slow moving but standing!
I did hear from Sally Heritage Jordan, who is doing fine and still involved in a swimming program. She wants everyone to know that she receives thank-you notes from the recipients of the Class of 1946 scholarships. She sends her best wishes, and to all she adds: “Have a good attitude and keep a smile on your face.” I’ll buy that!

Sue Brakel, daughter of Jean “Tommy” Thomas Clarke Jones, writes that her mother would like to reconnect with people from the Class of 1947. Tommy started with the Class of ’47 but transferred after three years when her mother moved to Missouri. Tommy graduated from Washington University in St. Louis.
