This message was received on 10-25-05 from Kathy McCloskey Loeb, an alumi of Edgewood High School, but has ties with West Jr High, Dudgeon and Queen of Peace Elementary schools. Many members of the Class of ’58 may have crossed paths with Kathy during our school years in Madison – ChuckR
Chuck — I check the Website frequently to keep updated on my childhood friends. Although I graduated from Edgewood, I went to West for junior high — and to Dudgeon and Queen of Peace for grade school. I really appreciate reading about everyone. It brings back lots of wonderful memories.
I live in St. Louis (actually, a suburb called Webster Groves) and have been at Fleishman-Hillard, a public relations firm for over 20 years and I’m looking forward to retirement in February.
I have two children — Lisa, who is currently getting her Ph.D. at University of California-Berkeley in Public Health (she recently spent 2.5 years in Zimbabwe doing AIDs research), and Jeff, who lives and works in L.A. Jeff is director of operations for Nederlander Theatres West Coast — which translates to — Mom gets house seats at any theatre where she wants to see a show just about anywhere in the world. I call it payback, a wonderful one at that. And, when I’m in LA, I get to “walk the red carpet” for opening night parties, along with spoiling his two beautiful children.
I keep in touch with Barb Watts Ploetz who is great about keeping me updated on folks.
I’m am going to try and get my class at Edgewood to have our reunion at approximately the same time as the West Class of ’58, so we (Barb, Gerry Paulson) can hopefully schedule a Queen of Peace grade school reunion during the same time period.
